-- Facial plastic surgery specialist Dr. Houtan Chaboki (www.potomacplasticsurgery.com
) is listed among the top 100 most influential physicians on RealSelf, the leading online community for people interested in cosmetic procedures. The facelift specialist with 2 Washington, D.C. locations says the honor is especially gratifying because he's dedicated to patient care and education.
"The Washington area women and men who come to me for consultation each have a vision of what they want. They count on my experience and training to recommend the best way to accomplish that vision," Dr. Chaboki says. "Your plastic surgeon should be a trusted adviser to help guide you through your cosmetic surgery journey. I look at RealSelf the same way. By offering my expertise online, I'm able to help countless readers with their own journeys."
The 100 plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and other specialists recognized by RealSelf extend their influence and move the medical industry forward by spending their free time answering patient questions on RealSelf. Thousands of physicians participate, but only a select few, including Dr. Chaboki, earn a place on the list.
"The RealSelf 100 represents doctors who harness the power of social media and our community in order to make a positive difference," said Tom Seery, CEO and founder of RealSelf. "We see this award as a way for our 3.5 million monthly visitors to express a collective 'thank you' for the dedication and support."
Besides being a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Chaboki is also certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology with specialized training in head and neck surgery. He says his combined certifications give him a unique insight into facial anatomy. He's noted for his excellent results in brow lifts and eyelid surgery
(blepharoplasty) at his Washington, D.C. practice.
Dr. Chaboki's skills have long been respected by both his patients and colleagues. U.S. News & World Report has designated him as a "Top Doctor," an honor limited to the top 10% of physicians in the region.
He performs a range of popular facial sculpting techniques, which include both non-surgical and surgical procedures. For example, Dr. Chaboki sometimes recommends combining facial fillers with liposuction of the neck, a less invasive alternative to neck lift
surgery. The Washington, D.C. surgeon says this strategy enables his patients to get a complete facial rejuvenation without as much downtime.
"My goal is to provide an array of choices that meet the individual needs of each of my patients," Dr. Chaboki says. "Non-surgical procedures have improved so much in recent years that I'm often comfortable recommending them to those who would rather avoid surgery. There are so many wonderful options available now to help people look and feel their best."
