Welcome to my office!
I believe that communicating openly and honestly is crucial to a successful doctor-patient relationship. That's why patients are one of my foremost priorities. During our initial consultation we'll discuss your medical history...your current lifestyle...your concerns and expectations...and the procedures that are most effective in achieving your desired results. My practice has been built on the principles of caring and commitment. It's important to me to instill my patients with trust and confidence as well as the assurance that their comfort and well-being will receive my utmost attention--before, during and after their surgery. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to discussing your needs in person. Your needs come first

Plastic Surgery encompasses both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient's appearance and self-esteem. Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance because it is elective.
Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.
Should hospitalization be required, Dr. Widder has staff privileges at the following hospitals: Fairfax Hospital, Fair Oaks Hospital, Reston Hospital, Suburban Hospital
