Christopher L. Hess, MD Reviews (217)


Dr. Hess and the staff are very professional and informative. This will be my second procedure with Dr. Hess. First time was a great experience.

Tummy Tuck

I thought the doctor and staff were great. His office is well organized, runs smoothly and on time. They are helpful and nice. It's clean and professional. Happy with better shape -

Tummy Tuck

Great results, fair price, and really liked Dr. Hess and his staff. Also, everyone at Northern VA surgery center was professional and very caring through what was a big surgery. The results are amazing.

Breast Augmentation

I was extremely impressed with the facility, Dr. Hess, Shelly and Katie. I felt so comfortable and did not feel rushed at all. I had a chance to ask all of my questions and felt that Dr. Hess gave me very thorough answers. The quote I received was professional and also very thorough. I had a consultation prior to this one, and it was a stark contrast. I would not choose anyone other than Dr. Hess to perform my procedure. Very happy with the consultation. Not to mention, it was free!

Breast Augmentation

The doctor was excellent at providing information in a thorough manner. The staff at the hospital was very kind and welcoming. Overall, the experience was everything that I wanted and expected. I have more confidence and feel like I look much more proportional.

Tummy Tuck

The only negative feedback I have is the ability to schedule the procedure. Dr. Hess was my number one choice but because his office has to coordinate with Fair Oaks hospital for an operating room there was a lot of going back and forth with the receptionist on available days. This going back and forth also seemed to contradict what Dr. Hess's availability was and after many discussions and call backs I just winded up going with my number 2 pick

Male Breast Reduction

The consultation was fast, but informative and easy to understand. They eased my nervousness and were very polite.

Breast Augmentation

The Surgeon was fantastic! He put me at ease. I closed my eyes and woke up to the new Me! Just perfect and super fast. Dr. Hess helped me make the perfect choice during the sizing!! Before and after surgery went really smooth! Anesthesia was great. Overall an amazing experience!

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Hess and his friendly staff of professionals are exceptional! My satisfaction with my body is higher than ever!

Tummy Tuck

The staff was realistic but supportive in presenting what they felt the results of the surgery would be. They were friendly and ready to help in any way possible when I had a question or concern. I felt that everyone from the receptionist to the doctor was willing to do their best to ensure I had a good result. The results of the work Dr. Hess did was very satisfying. My recovery has been better than I expected, and the staff has been more than willing to help with any post surgery issues or concerns.

Breast Augmentation

I feel more comfortable in my clothing. I am highly satisfied with my results, the results were better than I could have expected. I am happy I chose Dr. Hess as my surgeon.

Tummy Tuck

I've gotten two other price quotes with highly known surgeons and Dr. Hess if the most extensive. And the hospital stay was overnight with the other surgeons.

Breast Reduction

As I described in the last section, Dr. Hess was not sensitive at all when I was showing him the curves on my back from scoliosis. Is reaction was WOAH, I have never seen anything that bad!" My back is my biggest insecurity and to have a doctor comment on it like that was completely unprofessional in my opinion. My Mother and I were both disappointed as we left. I think that plastic surgeons should be more sensitive towards peoples insecurities. "

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Hess and his staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I went into the consult knowing what i wanted to get done and already have done my research but they ensured I was still informed with all the necessary documents and information needed to make a decision.

Breast Augmentation

I am so much more confident about myself now that I had the procedure and I'm thankful for it. The price was amazing and the doctor and staff made me very comfortable. The moment my boyfriend and I walked into the facility and the interactions we had with the doctor we knew from the first thirty minutes we were going to use that doctor. Not to mention my boyfriend loves the fountain in the facility and he wants one in our house. The doctor was able to give me so much information and tell me what was best based on my shape and I couldn't be any happier. I look great and I feel so confident now. I actually feel like I have a grown woman body. I am so happy and I have referred so many of my friends to Dr. Hess. I am so thankful. I am happy I went with this doctor after talking to two other doctors before him, he was the best and his price was the best.


I was allowed to feel comfortable and valued during the consultation, which in turn, helped me decide to move forward.

Male Breast Reduction

Both Dr. Hess and his associates were extremely forthcoming with information about the surgery and how it would impact my life.

Breast Augmentation

I have been wanting to have a breast augmentation for a very long time and I am very thankful and lucky to have found Dr. Hess and his staff. Thank you!

Tummy Tuck

As a mother of 5 kids, I wanted to have this procedure done for many years. When I met Dr. Hess at the consultation I immediately felt at ease. I am so happy with the results and I would share my experience with others without hesitation. Highly recommend! I can wear a fitted-T!
