Patient Story Of The Month: RMC

Generic placeholder image


Our patient spotlight this month is a wonderful woman who goes by RMC. Since college, RMC has been involved with the fashion industry. She went to the Fashion Institute of Technology, and when she moved to the D.C. area with her husband, she opened up her own clothing store. Throughout her adult life, she worked with fashion magazines, publications and even a few celebrities. This, as she says, put her in the public eye.

“I was in the public eye enough to care a lot about how I looked,” RMC says. “Not just my fashion but my physical appearance, too. If you’re constantly around people and being scrutinized, you want to look your best even more.”

This view of herself has not changed now that she has retired from the fashion industry. RMC believes that looking her best is an important part of her life, no matter what, which led her to find our clinic. RMC first came to Eye Plastic Associates through a referral from a friend. Her friend had a blepharoplasty, in which Dr. Scott had performed her upper eyelid surgery. “He did an absolutely beautiful job,” RMC stated. She added, “And my friend told me that he also does incredible Botox, so I decided to go. He is so professional in the eye area, he knows exactly what to do to give his patients a really nice, refreshed look, and that’s exactly what Dr. Scott did for me so I’ve been going to him ever since.”

RMC says that what she loves most about Dr. Scott, our team, and Eye Plastic Associates is the quality of work we do. “Dr. Scott is the kind of doctor who doesn’t like to make you look ‘done.’ He wants to give people a natural look, one in which you don’t look frozen. He’s kind, honest, and very thorough. Every time I leave the clinic, I feel very positive and happy with everything. I know Dr. Scott will take care of me.

“What makes Dr. Scott so unique is his focus on the eye area,” RMC continues. “There are a few plastic surgeons in the area, but having a plastic surgeon who works on the eye area is so much more comforting because he knows everything there is about that area. He knows all the muscles in the eye and exactly where to inject so it doesn’t cause any damage or drooping eyes. I have a high level of trust in Dr. Scott because he absolutely knows what he’s doing and is a kind and gentle professional.

Our goal is to help our patients feel good about themselves, and hearing how we have helped RMC and our other clients is very special to everyone on our team. We’re glad to assist our patients by helping them achieve the natural, refreshed and rejuvenated look they desire.
