Our Promise

We are dedicated to your safety and privacy.

My specialty is COSMETIC PLASTIC SURGERY also called Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and have been doing it for over thirty years. However for the last 21 years, I have also developed and pioneered in the Sub-Specialty of male genital (penis) enlargement and related procedures. I work in suburban Washington D.C. and my patients come from all over the country and many other foreign nations. In starting this website, not only do I want to tell you about how cosmetic genital surgery for both men and women works, but also about some of the interesting and fascinating stories of the over 20,000 thousand patients I have been privileged to have cared for during the course of my career.

Brief Bio: A few words about me

I earned my medical degree from Georgetown University Medical School as did my father and brother so you could say I have been in medicine all my life. After two years in internship and residency, I did general practice, even making over 400 house calls. I knew all I really was passionate about was surgery and since it was the age of specialization, I decided to specialize in surgery and completed six years of surgical residency in the State University of New York system and fellowship training in New York City and Rome, Italy. That was over 30 years ago. Not to brag, I am Board Certified by three Boards and have performed over 20,000 surgical procedures of many types. My contributions include several original operations, implants and instruments that bear my name. I have published several original articles and recently finished a book chapter on Free-Fat Grafting soon to be published. As a member Fellow of many scientific societies, I have lectured and done teaching both here and abroad. I work in my state of the art clinic, which is fully accredited for safety and excellence. I have an outstanding staff of highly competent well-trained professionals. We are dedicated to your safety and privacy. Stephen X. Giunta, M.D.
