Reviews of Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgeon Dr. David Berman from Sterling, Virginia (VA)
Thank You Dr. Berman and Staff
"I was a victim in a high profile sexual assault case. Before the assault, I was a very physically active person. I ran, I did weights, I stretched. I worked my body hard. I was very lean and fit.
After the assault, I stopped being me. I was afraid to run, and let someone grab me from behind. I wouldn’t go to the gym, as there were too many men there. I sat on the couch and drank beer and gained weight.
When I finally started exercising again, I shed fifteen pounds, but I kept residual weight on my tummy, hips and thighs. Twelve years after the assault, when the guy was finally arrested and put away for life, I decided I wanted to wipe out every memory of the man who hurt me. That included looking in the mirror and seeing how he left my body.
I approached Dr. Berman and asked for help, as I could not afford to do body sculpting on my own. Dr. Berman graciously helped me, and we started with my tummy and outer thighs. I am starting to see results, and it is not even quite a month yet.
The bulk of my weight is muscle, so I didn’t need to lose weight; I just had to lose the subcutaneous fat. My clothes are fitting better, and I can see my six pack abs again! I am toning up and firming up, and I love it. I will take care of the other problem areas after I pay off these procedures.
I am so thankful to Dr. Berman. He and his staff have been so kind and supportive every step of the way. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor. "
Scared but Extremely Happy :o)
"For anyone who is considering getting this surgery, I encourage you to do so. If possible, I recommend you schedule an appointment with Dr. Berman as I could not imagine having gone to another surgeon. I'm glad I went with my first instinct when choosing him. I reached out to Dr. Berman many times, via-e-mail along with phone calls, prayers etc...I must say, every time I called Dr. Berman, he was quick to respond, he was very assuring, and provided me with the research that backed up his decisions to perform one technique over the other. :o)"
"Thank you so much for your wealth of information on implantinfo.com by Nicole. Through your site I found a few different surgeons and contacted them all, after just a day or two, my decision was made and I am so VERY VERY pleased with Dr. David Berman of Sterling, VA. He is an excellent physician, I would recommend him to ANY and EVERYONE whom I come in contact with. I went in for my consult after making up my mind and choosing Dr. Berman, he was quick and straight to the point, no walking around anything, just the facts. I walked out of his office with my augmentation scheduled for 10 days later. Of course my nerves were a wreck, but my heart was relieved. The day of surgery was awesome too, I was in very minimal pain and it was just the best that I could have imagined it being. Dr. David Berman and his staff at Dulles Cosmetic Surgery were so wonderful, I can't even begin to imagine how I could thank Dr. Berman enough for such a wonderful job! I look great, I look natural, I am so pleased with everything! I highly suggest if you are on the look for a Surgeon in WV, VA, MD or DC area, the travel time is SO VERY WELL WORTH IT!!!
Thanks Dr. Berman, thank you so much!"
"I am a 25-year-old mother of 2. I am 5'3" and 105 lbs. I nursed each of my children for 1 year. While I was nursing, I was a very happy 32C. You can imagine my shock and despair when I finished breastfeeding and slowly shrank down to a floppy, saggy 32AA. I was devastated. My breasts were not only small, but where did all of this skin come from? I wanted a BA for 2 years (my son is 2) before I got up the nerve to do it. I'll never forget that "last straw".
I was undressing for a shower, and noticed my cat staring at me. I had to kick her out of the bathroom before I could take off my shirt!!! So, I selected 3 plastic surgeons, and went for consultations. My husband and I were both very impressed with how organized, professional, and thorough Dr. Berman was. He answered all of my questions before I even asked! Then, I went home and did my research.
That's when I found ImplantInfo. The decision was made. My surgery was in March '00, and I am now 3 weeks post-op. I have been so pleased with Dr. Berman, his staff, and my results, that I jumped at the chance to recommend Dr. Berman! I have never felt this good about myself! During recovery, Dr. Berman called and showed true concern for my well-being, which is rare these days. I have complete confidence in him and am happy to have this opportunity to share."
Ecstatic With Results
"I am a thirty-year old mother of one who, for years, struggled with the endless ritual of padding my bras and bathing suits. I was embarrassed to be seen naked by any one other than close family members due to the inadequate size of my breasts. I am 5'5" and weigh about 128 lbs. I have broad shoulders for a woman which added to the imbalance my size AAs created.
For years I had contemplated breast augmentation and even went for a consultation, in 1997, with a doctor in Fairfax with whom I felt no comfort level with when I left his office. In September of this year my sister got married and asked me to be the maid of honor at her wedding. The dress she had picked for me to wear was strapless and I had to buy a strapless bra two sizes too big and then pad it just to hold the dress in place and I still spent half the night adjusting, squirming and in total discomfort.
I decided to try one more time and found Dr. David Berman on ImplantInfo. I was very happy to find out that he could see me that same week. After my consultation with him, I was so comfortable and secure I scheduled my surgery before I even left his office that day. Dr. Berman and his staff, especially Sheryl, are head and shoulders above any medical establishment I have ever known. In a world of HMOs, doctors who rush you in and out like herded cattle and medical assistants who are so impersonal that you would prefer an automated phone response system, Dr. Berman was like a breath of fresh air. He has a personal touch and creates a doctor/patient relationship that is just unheard of in this day and time. Dr. Berman personally called me everyday for the first five days after surgery and two of those days were a Sat. & Sun. My surgery was performed on October 7th, it is now October 15th and I feel great!! I am ecstatic with my results and, for the first time, am looking forward to the summer and wearing a bathing suit. The decision to have the surgery was one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. Nicole, if there is anyone who would like to e-mail me about my experience please forward my address: IBS4Bucks@aol.com
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share."
"I consulted with Dr. David Berman concerning Breast Augmentation. Upon meeting Dr. Berman, I found him to be very professional, informative and personable. During my initial consultation, I of course had a lengthy list of questions. Dr. Berman was patient enough to sit with me and answer all of them without delay and made certain that I understood his detailed answers. I had researched plastic/cosmetic surgery and surgeons for approximately 7 years prior to meeting Dr. Berman. With Dr. Berman's phenomenal credentials and experience, I knew immediately that he was the surgeon that I wanted to have perform my surgery. I must also give much credit to Dr. Berman's staff. They are all pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. Having had my surgery with thrilling results, I find Dr. Berman to be a perfectionist, as the proof speaks for itself.
I hope this helps anyone interested in meeting or knowing more about Dr. Berman. My experience with him has been exceptional and would strongly recommend him. Thank you, Dianne DIANNIEP@AOL.com"
"In considering breast augmentation, I had heard that it's better to consult a reconstructive surgeon for the best results - and now I fully believe that. I've always been happy with the shape of my breasts but not the size and I was concerned that surgery would alter their overall shape as well. Dr. Berman met with my husband and I several times to go over pictures I had chosen and to answer my many questions before I finally decided to schedule for the surgery. He spent as much time as we needed beforehand to make sure we were completely comfortable with the procedure as well as the desired outcome. And as far as the results, I couldn't be more pleased. It's only been three months since the surgery and they are exactly what I was hoping for!"
Love His Work
"I had my BA and lower eyelids with laser done with Dr. Berman. I was very impressed with him and his staff, so much so I cancelled my second consult with another PS and scheduled my surgery before I left Berman's office that day.
He was ready to answer any and all of my questions and was very professional. Before and after my surgery I must have called his office a million times with questions and they were always kind and helpful. I never had to wait for answers.
I have sent 2 friends to use Dr. Berman (and I am sure many to come) and both of them are very happy with his work. I will gladly allow Nicole to post my email address with this note so anyone who wants to ask me questions about my augmentation with Dr.Berman may do so.
(No, I do not work for him. I just love his work on me! Now a 36 C and loving it.) Tina (firstname.lastname@example.org)"
Never Been Happier
"I have to say that I have had such a positive experience with my breast augmentation surgery and follow-up care with Dr. Berman that truly my only regret is that I didn't make the decision to have a B.A. done years ago.
I think many women have a "turning point" when they are considering B.A. Mine was when I was straightening out my lingerie drawer, and I came across an old bra I hadn't worn since college (about 8 years ago). I tried it on and realized it didn't fit right any more. Although I love my two young daughters, there was no denying that two pregnancies and subsequent breastfeeding had resulted in a decrease in cup size. I discovered ImplantInfo.com and found it to be very helpful when doing my research. In fact, I came across Dr. Berman's name through this site and I made an appointment for a consultation.
At that point I felt like I had made my decision and there was no time to waste. If I had any uncertainty about this resolution, it would have been completely allayed by Dr. Berman's professional and confident manner during the initial consultation. Even better, Dr. Berman conveyed a genuine sense of warmth and sensitivity. I set a date for surgery before I left the office and I knew that not only was B.A. what I really wanted, but that Dr. Berman was the surgeon in whom I could completely trust to have the best outcome possible.
Now, I am writing this letter three months post-op and I can say that I have never been happier. The recovery was much easier than I expected it to be. The medications kept the pain in check, and I even went back to daily running a mere 10 days post-op (a good sports bra is crucial). I no longer remember my old figure - my breasts already look & feel very natural. I would say that Dr. Berman is not just a surgeon, but also an artist as well. However, the most noticeable feature now when I look in the mirror is the big smile I have on my face. Thank you Dr. Berman!"

"I found Dr. Berman on ImplantInfo and called him from his page on your site. His work is incredible as well as his bedside manner. He is very honest, which is hard to find these days. And, no matter what time of the day it is, he is always available to answer questions, whether it be by phone or by email. I HIGHLY recommend him."
