Northern Virginia Plastic Surgeon to Host Free Cosmetic Surgery Seminar

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Byron Poindexter Presents Experience With Full Spectrum of Aesthetic Surgical Procedures

RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - November 12, 2013) - Noted Washington, D.C.-area plastic surgeon Byron Poindexter, M.D. will host a free cosmetic surgery seminar at the Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 from 6pm to 7:30pm.

During the event, Dr. Poindexter will discuss the latest news and advances in cosmetic plastic surgery, present photographic case studies, and answer audience questions.

"I'm glad to have the opportunity to talk with those interested in cosmetic surgery, and look forward to answering any and all questions from participants. There are many myths and misunderstandings about aesthetic plastic surgery in popular culture that may prevent people from having procedures that can help them look and feel better," says Dr. Poindexter.

"It's equally important to find a plastic surgeon who will tell you when a procedure isn't right or necessary for you," adds Dr. Poindexter. "I promise everyone who comes to see me that I'll recommend only those surgeries or cosmetic procedures, such as injectable fillers, that are appropriate for them. Good plastic surgery shouldn't be noticeable, and that's why only bad plastic surgery seems to get the most attention in the media -- because it stands out in a bad way. My aesthetic philosophy centers on natural, beautiful results, and I'm very pleased that I've been recognized for that."

Dr. Poindexter was voted amongst Best Cosmetic Surgeons in Northern Virginia in a survey of 25,000 Virginia Living Magazine readers. The recognition appears in the publication's prestigious yearly Best of Virginia issue for 2013.

Dr. Poindexter has also been recognized multiple times in the "Best Of" list for plastic surgery in Northern Virginia Magazine since 2007. A member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Dr. Poindexter was also recently named an Expert Injector™ by the Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety.

Board-certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery in 1999 shortly after going into practice, Dr. Poindexter is known not only for his superlative cosmetic surgery results but for his kind, down-to-earth nature. Patients and staff alike describe Dr. Poindexter as a talented, meticulous, compassionate and dedicated surgeon, with a warm, engaging manner that puts those who meet him at ease right away.

All seminar attendees will receive a gift certificate for a free skincare consultation and 20% off any skincare procedure, including laser, in the Austin-Weston Center's Medical Aesthetique.

Dr. Poindexter's seminar is open to the public, and members of the media are welcome.
