Center for Plastic Surgery History in Washington, D.C.
The Center for Plastic Surgery was formed in 1986 by the merger of two plastic surgery practices in the Washington DC area. The practice of Doctors James French and Wesley Price merged with the practice of Doctors Albert Fleury Sr. and Albert Fleury Jr. to form the new group and provide plastic surgery services to a wider geographic area as well as a broader spectrum of plastic surgery procedures. In recent years, Center for Plastic Surgery has had the good fortune of having two talented surgeons join the practice; Dr. Samir S. Rao, and Dr. Frank P. Albino. Since 1986, Center for Plastic Surgery has continued to flourish into a practice of award-winning doctors known for their experience, skill, and the incredible results they provide their patients.
