Practice Philosophy

Dr. James French’s patients value his ability to provide a safe procedure, comfortable and listening atmosphere, and natural-looking results for an experience that meets or exceeds their expectations.

“I believe each individual requires a unique solution. To ensure your results match your expectations and reflect your distinct sense of self, the right approach must be identified, provided and implemented by a professional plastic surgeon. I focus on aesthetics, harmony and a natural look, and I am honored knowing that Washington, DC patients trust their appearance to me.”


Dr. French has been specializing in Washington plastic surgery for more than 20 years. His procedure interests include Northern Virginia facelift, breast augmentation Washington, abdominoplasty and liposuction.

In addition to residencies in general surgery (Louisiana State University School of Medicine) and plastic surgery (Vanderbilt University), Dr. French has also completed a fellowship in craniofacial surgery. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) and has consistently been named a Washingtonian Top Plastic Surgeon since the late 1980’s.


Whether you are hoping to schedule a procedure soon or just want to know more about your options, the goal of each consultation is to make sure your questions are answered and that you have the information you need to take the next step in your journey, regardless of whether that includes surgery. Consultations with Dr. French are available at both CPS office locations in Annandale, VA and Chevy Chase, MD.


Dr. French and his CPS colleagues primarily perform surgery in their Northern Virginia location and at the Sibley Memorial Hospital Surgery Center. Outpatient surgery can be performed at either location, as well as at INOVA Fairfax Hospital in Annandale. Overnight-stay patients go to Sibley Hospital. Anesthesia in all locations is administered by physician-anesthesiologists. Post-operative care and appointments can be in either our Chevy Chase or Northern Virginia office—whichever is most convenient for you.
