This is the story of Dr. Bermant's passion for public education, documenting deformity, surgical solutions, and the path to get there. Our critical standard before / after pictures revealed more about what needed sculpting and just the techniques achieved. Movies extended that detail to the dynamic component: how tissues moved. Emotions of living with the problem, the experiences of surgery, and just how the surgery changed that patient's life. Careful evaluation of this detail permitted Dr. Bermant used to evolve his techniques to minimize bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Pictures here were typical for his patients and techniques. He worked hard to have his patients tell him that their results were as good or better than what they found here. Learn more about Using Before & After Photos.

Learning About Your Problem
Dr. Bermant used his patient's education as a component in achieving a better sculpture. Knowledge is power. A better understanding of the risks, benefits, and alternate methods of care can contribute to more comfort, less anxiety, and more realistic expectations. Now retired, he no longer is offering surgical sculpture. However, this site still provides a powerful tool in the learning process about the issues of deformity, surgery, and recovery.

The consultation with Dr. Bermant was often extensive and informative. His patients' education started here on this site. The Internet permitted our patients to take their time, absorb details at a relaxed pace. Many of our patients traveled from around the world for Dr. Bermant's plastic surgery sculpture. Patients then continued with our Preliminary Remote Discussion before coming to Virginia. Our consultations then built on the information here on the internet. He designed specific forms for the various conditions he treated. Common symptoms, issues, and problems were listed to stimulate each individual to express and explain themselves.

Our patients were asked to bring a list of their current medications including dosages and frequency. They also were asked to bring any X-rays (Radiographs) that may have been taken regarding their current condition.

Dr. Bermant could then continue his education about each patient's needs during the consultation and then explain his specific medical advice.

Our Patients
