Faulkner Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics
Address: 6000 Executive Blvd., Suite 204 North Bethesda, MD 20852
Dr. Brent Faulkner is a board-certified plastic surgeon affiliated with multiple Washington metropolitan area hospitals. Voted a “Top Doctor” by Washingtonian and Bethesda Magazine, he has been in practice since 2007. He opened Faulkner Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics in 2019 to offer a full range of cosmetic procedures, from chemical peels, microneedling and skincare to minimally invasive body contouring and complex surgeries. Through comprehensive, customized treatments and surgeries using the latest technology in aesthetic medicine, Dr. Faulkner is passionate about meeting patients where they are and helping them reach their goals.
Dr. Faulkner was drawn to plastic surgery during his last rotation in medical school. “One particular surgical case — repairing a cleft lip in an infant — had a lasting impact on my desire to pursue this field,” he says. “The difference this one repair made on the lives of this infant and his parents was extraordinary.”
Dr. Faulkner says he’s continually inspired by the strong relationships he builds with patients and their families. “The trust they put in me is humbling and motivates me to provide the best possible care,” he says.
The best, most trustworthy surgeons distinguish themselves by recognizing when not to operate. Deeply committed to his patients’ health and well-being, Dr. Faulkner values open and honest communication—and will always tell patients when he doesn’t believe surgery is in their best interest. “Just because you have a surgical option,” he says, “doesn’t mean it’s the best option.”
“It’s important for my patients to know they can trust me,” says Dr. Faulkner.
Dr. Faulkner graduated from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine and completed his plastic surgery residency at the University of Virginia. An award-winning, board-certified plastic surgeon, he devotes part of his surgical practice to breast cancer reconstruction. “I want to be a resource for women facing the daunting challenges of undergoing breast cancer treatment,” says Dr. Faulkner.
