Meet Our Surgeons

Center for Plastic Surgery is a joint cosmetic surgery practice with four board-certified plastic surgeons. Dr. James French, Dr. Wesley Price, Dr. Samir S. Rao, and Dr. Frank P. Albino have numerous years of experience serving plastic surgery patients from Chevy Chase and Bethesda, MD; Arlington and Fairfax, VA; and across the Washington, DC, metro area. They are widely recognized for providing skillfully done and natural-looking plastic surgery results.

The History of CPS

Center for Plastic Surgery was formed in 1986 by the merger of two plastic surgery practices in the Washington, DC, area. The practice of Dr. James French and Dr. Wesley Price merged with the practice of Dr. Albert Fleury Sr. and Dr. 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.

Meet Our Surgeons

Every person at our practice shares a set of values, an aesthetic sensibility, and a desire to hear and understand our patients. It is rare that four professional individuals should have so much in common, and it is this shared vision that has enabled Center for Plastic Surgery to be the standard-bearers of excellence for plastic surgery in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. For skillfully executed plastic surgery and beautifully natural-looking results, our four outstanding surgeons are ready to help.

Our Plastic Surgery Philosophy

Our practice’s deeply held philosophy about cosmetic surgery is this: There is a unique solution for each individual. To reflect the individual’s unique sense of self, the right solution must be provided and implemented by professional plastic surgeons. Washington, DC, patients know that we care about aesthetics, harmony, and a natural look. Our patients value our ability to provide a safe, realistic combination of procedures for natural-looking results that meet or exceed their expectations.
