Facetime Facelift Testimonial

Dear Dr. Sigal,

There are not enough words to express how grateful I am for having my self-confidence back…it has been quite a while since I could look into a mirror and smile at my reflection; and it is all because of your FaceTime FaceLift!!! I feel whole – the outside is now in sync with the inside and I feel beautiful! Thank you so very, very much…


Thank you note for Northern Virginia Cosmetic Surgeon

Dear Dr. Weston,

It’s been 6 ½ months since my surgery and I continue to do well.

You and your staff have been most accommodating, friendly and encouraging. Your kind reassurance gave me the courage to finally decide with the surgery, which I have been putting it off because of fear. I have no regrets!

So to you, “Thank you”. To all your staff – “Hugs and Thank you” You are really the “Right Staff”!

Of course for me, I love my face.



Dr. Poindexter, thank you from the bottom of my…kidney! (heart seems so cliche)

I can not begin to thank you for your help in reducing the size of my tummy. It has been the beginning of my new healthy lifestyle. With my exercising routine and diet I’m actually seeing my goals and dreams coming to life. I feel like a new woman!




I’ve decided to get my Juvederm injection at AUSTIN WESTON CENTER FOR COSMETIC SURGERY, because it’s very close to home, and mostly because I wasn’t very happy with my previous provider. It was an excellent decision. They are high level professionals, very attentive and meticulous, the facility is everything you can wish for, but the most important thing is that Dr. Knotts did a very good job for me. He spent quite some time on examining my condition and giving me detailed recommendations to ensure the best outcome. I can’t be happier with the results. I definitely go back this year, and I’ve already recommended the provider to a number of my friends.

Northern Virginia Breast Reduction

Dear Dr. Sigal

It’s been several months since my surgery. I have wanted to send you a card giving thanks for some time now. The reason I haven’t is that I feel so much bigger than what I was able to find printed on a Hallmark card.

Until recently I never really understood how much I felt like I was a prisoner in my own body. For the past 40 years, and long before Sara Blakely came on the scene, I was held captive by polyester. To be honest, I have always hated my “boobs” from the day they arrived. Yes for a short time they were actually front and center but then they both turned on me and headed southwestern. This was way before I had children so really I’ve never been fan of either of them. After all, one was bigger, louder and more full of itself, always pulling my shirts to the right… But what they did have in common was the need to completely annoy me, ben embarrass me whenever possible. I was too embarrassed to join girlfriends when they went to a day spa, and missed my prom because I couldn’t wear a strapless dress. Yes, Really. It felt like I have spent more time inside my closet trying to figure out what I would feel comfortable wearing, then actually outside in the real world. Minimizers, underwire and spanx were actually becoming layers on my own skin. I had that permanent indention mark on my shoulders and the idea of going bra-less was completely out of the question.

So now, several months since my surgeries, I want to tell you what my day is like, everyday.

I wake up every morning and the first thing I do is touch my breasts, as they are no longer “boobs”, just to make sure it wasn’t all just a dream. Then, I admire them in the mirror for lengthy periods of time. Showers have become more fun to say the least. My breasts have never been so clean, (stole that from Sarah Silverman.) I also take pleasure in saying things like “Haha, you just made my new nipples hard”, when laughing at someone’s jokes. I could also see that my husband, of 25 years, was starting to get jealous of my new behaviors so I had to confess to him that I did love him more than my breasts, (but only by a little… shhh).

I want to thank you for your “artistic talents”, and this is coming from an art teacher. I also know that what challenges you had with my “girls”. More importantly thank you for your expertise as a doctor and scientist, whom has the talent to make people, like me, feel comfortable enough to embark on such a big decision.

I highly recommend this surgery to any woman out there! I want everyone to know that they do not have spend the rest of their life trapped in a prison, like I did. That even at 52, one can truly love their body. For me I love mine more than ever before.

Thank you so much for giving me this freedom!

P.S. I love your staff!



Dear Dr. Weston,

There are not enough words to express our gratitude for all your expertise and skill. Your care and true concern made us feel so comfortable.

From the very first consultation to our surgery, you showed us the kindness and compassion of a true friend… and what a great way to celebrate our 40 years of marriage – what a story we’ll one day tell our grandchildren.

Thank you, thank you.


Extremely happy with personal attention and fantastic results making me look 30 years younger. So happy that I am even doing additional surgery in two weeks. Am hoping to look even younger.

Dr. Poindexter is very understanding of a patients desires and needs. He is the greatest!


I am two and a half weeks post tummy tuck and could not be more pleased with the outcome and care that I received. Dr. Christopher Knotts is clearly brilliant, experienced and incredibly caring. I came loaded with questions and he answered each one with depth and interest; the procedure was expertly done; and the follow-up has been ongoing and vigilant.

Dr. Knotts is a deeply kind, caring and genuine surgeon who is clearly among the best in his field.

“Complete Facelift, Neck Lift, Corners of Mouth, Lips, Eyebrow Lift, Up, Lower Eyelids, Chin, Cheekbones”

Their reputation was impeccable, the doctors had a great deal of experience, friend’s referral, positive experience when I went for my first consult, very knowledgeable staff, my patient councilor had been through the same procedures and she understood what I would be going through in terms for healing time, and after surgery care. Last but by no means least was the computer program my patient councilor used to give me an idea of how I would look after I was healed.

Dear Cheri,

Thank you so very much for the time you spent with me last week with my appointment with Dr. Sigal. I plan on reading all the information and will get back with you for questions. Your gracious manner was truly appreciated.


Hi Cheri,

Just a note to say thanks for ALL your help—had a meeting at work last week – comments were GREAT! All of them suggested I start wearing tighter clothes!



Thank you so much for listening to me and for all of your advice and words of encouragement. It really made me feel better. It was so nice to see you at the Open House too. I enjoyed being a “sample” [example of Dr. Sigal’s work] and had about 25 people ask me questions and give me compliments! It was fun. I am now addicted to getting my lips done though I think I really like them now.



Dear Cheri,

Thank you so much for helping me select the right size just for me! You were so patient and attentive so thank you so much! The best of luck to you and your family!


Dear Sherri,

Thank you so much for being so great morning of my surgery. I was so nervous this time around and it helped so much having our conversation about doing this the second time around. You were great and I felt so relieved!

Virginia Cosmetic Surgery Testimonial for staff

To Dr. Sigal and the wonderful staff at the Austin-Weston Center, I say thank you for your care.

Dr. Sigal, you are the most amazing, caring and compassionate surgeon. You take care of your patients by making sure they have the best results. As for me, I thank you for your special care and the follow-ups with my appointments to have the best results. I am so grateful and happy for putting a new sparkle in my eyes. You are one of a kind.

Testimonial for The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Sigal and all Austin-Weston staff:

I am writing to provide my sincere appreciation and gratitude for all the work you and your team has done to better improve my life over the past few years. I have worked with so many people in the office that I can’t even list all the names. I have had many (in my mind) procedures and have worked extensively with Reception, Office Managers, Aestheticians, Post-Op, the OR—pretty much every section of the organization. From the customer’s perspective, I always feel as if I am cared for and a priority at the office. All staff are incredibly friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and make me feel as if I am a family member. I appreciate Austin-Weston’s goal to stay on the forefront of the industry as well. As I sit here healing from a Sciton laser treatment, I know it is worth it and am glad we are in it together.

Plastic Surgery Testimonial - Reston, VirginiaTo everyone,

I cannot tell you how much this has been a life-changing, positive experience…something I could previously only dream about.

The care and genuine concern from the staff for my well-being, both prior to, during and after the surgery, made all the difference for a full and speedy recovery. The “after” results are way beyond what I imagined. I am on Cloud 9 whenever I look in the mirror. It’s hard to believe the level of skill and artistry and commitment to perfection that went into producing these results – definitely cutting edge (no pun intended) and way ahead of others in the field of plastic surgery.

Thank you again for all of your professionalism, attention to detail, and genuine caring. I have recommended your practice and will continue to share my positive experience with others. Your team is absolutely the best!

Plastic Surgery Washington D.C. Testimonial

To all the wonderful sincere nurses and staff,

Thank you for your kindness and concern throughout our procedure. You all had to put up with two of us at the same time. You made our experience very special – a 40th wedding anniversary to remember.

Virginia plastic surgery testimonial

Dear Laura,

You were the very first person we met and you were so sweet and nice. You really answered a lot of our questions and helped to guide us on our way. Thank you for being so kind and thoughtful.


Testimony: I had plastic surgery with Dr. Weston in 2006 and my experience was wonderful. Dr. Weston, the nurses, staff and surgery staff were friendly and professional. When The Austin-Weston Center called me about doing a photo shoot, I was excited. During my photoshoot, the staff was wonderful as always. I had my hair and makeup refreshed, help with my wardrobe choices, and the photoshoot was very professional. Thanks again! You even included my husband in the photoshoot!

Husband of patient:

Testimony: I have always told my wife how beautiful she is. I don’t think she believed me until after her procedure at Austin-Weston. She was a changed woman with more self-confidence than she had ever showed to me before. The staff was great and helpful and made sure the entire process was easy. 4-and-a-half years later I can say for sure that the decision for my wife to have her procedure done was one of the best we ever made. Today we got to visit the Center again for the photoshoot. The experience was fun and we were happy to be included. Thank you to The Austin-Weston Center for being so great.

Plastic Surgeon Testimonial for Northern Virginia - Washington DC

Thank you for being the best plastic surgeon in the world.

Thank you for your kindness, consideration, professionalism and bedside manner. Most of all, thank you for being you.

With gratitude

Dear Dr. Weston, Dr. Sigal and Dr. Poindexter,

I am writing this letter to let you know how delighted I am with the results of the two procedures performed on me at The Austin-Weston Center by you, Dr. Sigal.

In May, I had an abdominoplasty, a major effort for Dr. Sigal considering the state of my former figure, and this year in February you, Dr. Sigal, gave me a new face. Just getting dressed and catching my reflection in a mirror is a daily joy and reminder of the wonderful treatment I received and continued to receive at your establishment, delivered with sincere and professional concern for my well-being.

I also want to congratulate you on having collected a superb support staff, i.e., Rona, Kathy, Robyn, Carolyn, Cameron, Kristen, Mary, among others, who are unfailingly helpful, polite and charming at all times.

Whenever an opportunity presents itself to recommend cosmetic surgery I mention your offices and show myself off, since I am already a walking advertisement.I have no qualms people knowing that I have been “surgically altered” and, if suitable, you can use me as an example any time.

With warmest regards,


Northern Virginia Plastic Surgery Testimonial

To the Nurses & Staff –

Thanks so much for taking excellent care for me when I had my breast augmentation done on 6/22.

Dr. Poindexter is great!! I just want to let you all know how appreciative I am you all and how you all went above and beyond duty to make sure “us” patients are very well cared for.

Dr. Poindexter has a great staff. Thanks to all who assisted in my surgery – especially the nurse anesthetist whose name was Michelle and the nurse in the OR named Michael. They took GREAT care of me and I really wanted to let them know how much I do appreciate them and what a great job they did. They deserve KUDOS!!

Great work everyone. I am doing GREAT!

September 7,

Dear Dr. Sigal and the staff of the Austin-Weston Center:

I want to express my sincere thanks to you all for doing a superb job in not only making me look better, but in helping me feel more confident and positive about the whole experience before, during, and after my surgery.

You were always friendly, yet professional. You took the time to provide me and my husband with all the information we needed. You helped us prepare for surgery, and then spent the time and attention necessary to ensure a speedy and relatively trauma-free recovery.

Finally, your facility is first-rated -clean, beautiful and calming.

Again, I am so appreciative of your excellent services and for the care and compassion you all showed me and my husband throughout the entire experience.

Procedures: Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift, Liposuction of inner knees, inner and outer thighs and flanks.

Dr. Weston, Elizabeth, Mike, Patrick, Margaret and all that had a hand in creating my new body!

Thank you so much! Though I am still healing, I notice the difference every day!

Your expertise, kindness and compassion will never be forgotten.

I only wish I lived close enough to come for you!


Thank you so much for being such a wonderful doctor.

I just wanted you to know that it has only been three and a half weeks since my surgery and I am already living pain free! After living with breast pain for three years, I could not have imagined what it would be like to wake up everyday and without any pain physically and emotionally.  Not only do I feel great, but I love my new physical appearance. I have already lost 6 pounds and am down to my normal weight and on to my way to being very healthy again!

You have changed my life. I have already referred two people to you and plan to refer more. Everyone thinks that I look great! I can’t wait to see you at my four month visit and will return for anything else I feel that I need. You are an angel in my eyes!

I just want to say thanks to you and all of your staff for a great experience from start to finish. You all made my surgery and recovery process wonderful!”

Thank you again.

Dear Ruby and Joy,

Thank you for being part of the “winning” team (smile) which made my dream come true and restored to me more than you can imagine. You’re special and gave me something special as well.



Thank you note for Virginia Plastic Surgeon

Dear Dr. Austin and Staff,

I can’t begin to express my gratitude for all that you have done for me.

It has given me the confidence and self assurance to pursue my career in music. I recently have become the head of the voice and musical theatre department at the Expressive Dance and Fine Arts Center, and I do not think I would have had enough belief in myself to take this position if I had not had the support of everyone at your establishment.

I also would like to thank you for the kind attention my husband received when Dr. Poindexter operated on his face for cancer.

This has meant so much to both of us. It has been such a meaningful experience.

Thank you again,


Thank you note for Northern Virginia Plastic Surgeon

Dear Dr. Poindexter and each staff member involved with my care,

Each one of you has been so nice
It makes it very hard
To put so much real gratitude
Into a single card.
But if each one of you will read
Between the lines, you’ll know
This brings a “thank-you” more sincere
Than words could ever show.

God Bless each of you.

Facial Rejuvenation Testimonial for Northern Virginia Cosmetic Surgery Practice

Hello Mary:

It has being a while. I have had plenty of time to think about my surgery since my first visit to the clinic. I also considered points made by Doctor Weston.

I thought about eradicating the tail end of my smile line via collagen implants for now, understanding that that is a temporary procedure.

I will later decide if I need a full surgery if the temporary collagen implant doesn’t work at all.

I have to complement you all. You are all lovely ladies. As “nervous” as I was, you made me feel relaxed. Dr. Weston is a very funny and down-to-earth man. That made me even more comfortable. I will email him under separate cover shortly.

I overheard someone mention that the clinic is moving to a location. That will definitely help in terms of parking area.

I will call you before the week runs out. How’s your associate? The other lady that worked with you on the day I was in the clinic. She’s beautiful, too.

Thank you

I just wanted to let you know how lucky I feel that our paths crossed and that you were my surgeon.

From the time I first met you I felt completely at ease with all the unknowns.

During our initial meeting you said two things that I have always believed: You have to go with your own gut feelings and this is a leap of faith. I put my trust in you and was well rewarded by the results of your talent.

You have put a brightness back in me and I thank you.


Northern Virginia Liposuction TestimonialVirginia Plastic Surgeon Liposuction tthank you card

Thank you all so much for the angelic way you take care of me and those I love so dearly!

Being taken care of so compassionately and gently and with a splash of humor makes what could be a miserable experience (like stitches) almost enjoyable!

I appreciate both the visit to the Christine Valmy salon, which was great fun, and receiving the second set of after pictures. Clearly, the photographer has improved somewhat. I have just attended my 35th high school reunion where the first thing an old beau said to me was “How would you like to get into the back seat of my car and neck?” – which is exactly what a 52 year old mother of four wants to hear on such occasions. I felt like Eliza Doolittle at the ball…and I am having the time of my life.

Thank you all for turning me into a Fair Lady.
