THE BEST Rhinoplasty surgeon in the DC, VA, MD area! AMAZING!!!! Dr. Ira Papel is absolutely brilliant. He is a true MASTER in the field of Rhinoplasty. I came to Dr. Papel after visiting over 30 surgeons in D.C.,VA,MD and even FL, CA and outside the US.

I did A LOT, over 2 years, of research before deciding on the right partner for this journey of changing my nose. Dr. Papel was the first doctor who sat with me from the beginning, explained in full detail with graphs and clear language his approach, and suggestions to my needs. He LISTENED very clearly on my desires. He took the images he needed, He examined those images with me and together we came with a plan of action for the desired results. I was even able email him additional questions and concerns and within a couple of hours he responded.

If you are looking to do a rhino I would visit Dr. Papel. He has set the standard very high for all plastic surgeons. Thank you, Dr. Papel, you have changed my life!


I have used other plastic surgeons in the past, but Dr. Papel really stands out. He is very professional, extremely knowledgeable and really personable. He takes his time with every patient and goes to great length to explain the desired procedure. Of course every patient is concerned about the outcome of their surgery but I can assure you that Dr. Papel produces remarkable results. Dr. Papel performed rhinoplasties for both my son and daughter and the results were truly amazing. He did exactly what he said he would do and I couldn’t have been more pleased. And it’s no surprise that his staff is just as professional, courteous and friendly. I can’t say enough about my wonderful experience with Dr. Papel and his office staff. Highly recommend!

This will be my 4th surgery. I was treated very well. Dr. Papel thoroughly explained the issues and the procedure. He was a great listener and felt as though he had great compassion for my situation. He truly understood that I am in a frustrated place and put me at ease.

Dear Dr. Papel,

I want to thank you for the “tender loving care” with which you treat me. Each and every time I leave your office, I remind myself what a really exceptional doctor you are. Not only are you a gifted surgeon, but your “bedside manner” is unparalleled. You never make me feel less than important and never rush your time with me as many other physicians do. Your consideration of my financial situation is greatly appreciated.

If you ever need a referral, please do not hesitate to give out my number. I will be more than happy to sing your praises. You’re the best!

Best regards,

Dr. Papel is a phenomenally skilled surgeon! And highly personable. In my opinion, he is a leader in his field, confident, competent and experienced in current facial surgery procedures. Dr. Papel performed reconstructive nasal surgery to repair a botched rhinoplasty surgery that disfigured my nose and inhibited my ability to breathe. He performed nasal valve reconstruction with auricular cartilage graft, brow lift, and face lift. The results exceeded my expectations. My nose has been restored to a natural look and I am able to breathe 100% better than before surgery. I am 50 years old and have the rested youthful look of a 20 year old! Dr. Papel and his staff are great. I highly recommend Dr. Papel and his Facial Surgery Center.

Four months after Dr. Papel performed surgery on my face, I want to report to you that I am completely recovered and receiving wonderful compliments on the results. Those who knew I was having the procedure feel I look ten years younger. Others who did not know tell me how youthful I look for being 60 years old. Most importantly is the way I feel, and I can not thank you enough. Women are very critical of themselves and I am no exception. I can now look in the mirror and feel good about aging gracefully.

An unexpected result of this procedure is being more conscience of my complete appearance. Exercise, diet, grooming, and wardrobe have all been addressed.

Your staff was wonderful. They were kind, professional, understanding and informative. Jeannine has me on a regimen which seems to be improving my skin, moreover, enhancing the work you have done. We are in contact by phone.

This baby boomer is more than satisfied with your services and would recommend you with no reservations. My best regards to you and your staff. Your kindness will not be forgotten.

I chose Dr. Papel to do my surgery because he came very highly recommended by someone my father knew. I have been very pleased with the rhinoplasty surgery to correct a deviated septum and to slim my nose down a little. It has been years now and I’m still very happy with it. I can’t be grateful enough for the beauty Dr. Papel helped fashion for me or for the courage that went with it.

Dear Dr. Papel:

I just wanted to take this opportunity to commend you and your staff for providing exceptional customer care. Words cannot express what a wonderful experience I had and continue to have in working with you and everyone in your office

I realize now that the anxiety and trepidation I felt prior to surgery on July 2, 2008 was completely unfounded. The surgery was painless as well as post surgery. Your staff was compassionate and understanding and Dr. Chien was incredible and addressed all of my fears and concerns.

Thanks to you, Dr. Papel, my operation was so successful, that when the bandages were removed I could not help getting overwhelmed and tearful. I will be recommending you and your staff to everyone I know.

I want to especially thank Dr. Chien, Beth Mashburn, Dr. Agrawal, Melanie Rubin, Stephanie Carrion, and anyone else I may have forgotten. Thank you all for taking such good care of me and turning a stressful situation into a positive experience.
