Premier Cosmetic Surgery Meeting in San Diego

I presented at a fun-filled meeting on premier cosmetic surgery. The theme was 80’s/90’s Battle of the Bands, and many of my dear colleagues and I dressed as Robert Palmer “girls” (Here’s a video for the younger audience who may not know who they are: Robert Palmer - Addicted To Love).

I recently participated in the Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons workshop meeting in NYC, speaking on Arm Lift and Thigh Lift techniques and safety.

This photo is with Dr. Tara Huston who hosted the event along with Dr John Potochny.

Behind me is Dr. Rachel Bluebond Langner who trained at John Hopkins and is now at NYU and doing amazingly well. It was so fun to see Dr. Langner and meet Dr. Huston and share some knowledge with my fellow Doctors!

Representing Women as One of America’s Best Female Plastic Surgeons in 2021!

On June 16, 2021, Newsweek announced the survey results done with industry peers about the top plastic surgeons in America. 50 female plastic surgeons were highlighted, making the top five percent of more than 8,000 U.S. board-certified plastic surgeons.

The results found Dr. Shermak, considered by qualified medical professionals and board-certified plastic surgery peers, to be one of the best breast augmentation and rhinoplasty plastic surgeons in the U.S, and especially noted as ranking as one of the 50 female plastic surgeons out of the top plastic surgeons in America.

Dr. Shermak Interview in Baltimore Business Journal

“What’s it like to be a plastic surgeon?

It’s very exciting. In Judaism, there’s something called a mitzvah. It’s a good deed. I feel like I get to do at least one mitzvah per day. In other careers, you don’t get that opportunity.

How do people react to your profession?

When I do meet people, I do get a lot of questions. It’s always ethically tricky when someone asks you for advice at a party.

What kind of questions?

People ask about all types of treatments, surgical procedures. People are really interested and want good information.” Click Here download Page 2 of the Baltimore Business Journal featuring Dr. Shermak. Click Here to read the full interview.

Dr. Shermak in Baltimore Jewish Times – “Unmasking Surprising Jewish Views On Plastic Surgery”

“Overall, says Dr. Michele Shermak, also of Baltimore Plastic Surgery, she doesn’t see much difference between the desires of her Jewish patients and others. ‘If anything, they may be a bit less trendy. For example, right now there’s the Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez trend for big bottoms, and most of my Jewish clients won’t ask for that’…

Silverman is adamant that her decision to have surgery was the right one, and she couldn’t have been happier with her surgeon, Dr. Shermak. In fact, she is very open about the procedures she has had. “I had three beautiful, healthy 9-pound babies. No matter what I did,” she says, “I could not get my body back. It’s not my fault; things happen!” A Pikesville native, Shermak says her interest in plastic surgery began with a film she watched in a social studies class at Pikesville High School.”

Dr. Shermak in MedPage Today – “Breast Reduction Riskier After 50″

“Given those factors, hormones could be one explanation for poorer breast reduction outcomes at older ages, the researchers noted. ‘In the laboratory, topical estrogen has been found to optimize wound healing, a process thought to be related to estrogen’s stimulation of growth factors,’ Shermak’s group explained. ‘Close questioning about factors that may cause hormonal deficiency such as history of hysterectomy/oophorectomy should be addressed, and hormone replacement therapy may be worth considering in this group of patients,’ they suggested in the paper. Other explanations could be the effect of aging on the skin — atrophy, progressive loss of function, increased vulnerability to the environment, and decreased homeostatic capability — as well as on other processes needed for wound healing, such as cell proliferation and migration.” Click here to read the full article by Crystal Phend at MedPage Today.

Dr. Shermak in The Baltimore Sun

“…A woman was arrested in Miami recently after allegedly injecting tire repair adhesives in a similar procedure. Earlier this year, a British woman died after an improper procedure in a Philadelphia hotel room, and a New York City woman was arrested on charges that she performed illegal breast and buttocks-enhancement procedures in her home, according to news reports.

‘Who would imagine someone would let someone else inject them with something from Home Depot? It’s insane,’ said Dr. Michele Shermak, a Lutherville plastic surgeon and spokeswoman for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which has launched a campaign to educate the public on the perils on plastic surgery performed by the untrained. ‘It’s horrible on so many levels,’ she said. ‘You’re going to have a toxic reaction.’…” Click here to read the full article by Meredith Cohn at The Baltimore Sun.

COVID-19 Update 03/15/2022

This is a new day, with new safety protocols. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and respect the continued concerns COVID-19 may present.

The state of Maryland is now fortunately downgraded to Yellow Status. COVID stress on the medical system has lessened and most areas in the state no longer mandate masks.

Currently in our office we are maintaining sterile surfaces and compulsive cleaning protocols – as always. We are requesting information about vaccination status, to particularly better help us prepare for patients interested in surgical procedures.

We are not mandating masks. We do respect our patients’ wishes and will wear a mask when requested to do so. We want our patients to be absolutely comfortable. All of our staff are vaccinated.

This is certainly an evolving issue and we will continue to pivot as COVID statistics change – hopefully for the better! Thank you!
