“After meeting the patient and listening to their concerns, I enjoy helping them through the process of self-improvement. My work is extremely satisfying, knowing that we can help bring their self-esteem to a new level. Through both nonsurgical and surgical options available to today’s woman, the ability to achieve goals is easier than ever.”

As a physician assistant for Dr. Birely, Cheryl Sugar both assists in the operating room as well as administers the injectables and fillers for patients at Artistry in Plastic Surgery in Baltimore. A former patient herself, Cheryl offers patients compassion, understanding and a woman’s perspective regarding surgical and nonsurgical enhancement. She has worked closely with Dr. Birely for over 14 years. Like Dr. Birely, she believes successful plastic surgery results from a combination of good communication, realistic patient goals and meticulous surgical technique.

“Not many people are able to say they love waking up and going to work. I feel fortunate to be one of those people who do. I have been with Dr. Birely’s office for over 14 years and have always enjoyed the work atmosphere. From the people I work with to the patients, my day is always very gratifying.”

“My goal as a Nurse Practitioner is to provide a supportive and caring environment to encourage patients to feel comfortable discussing their expectations and concerns. I believe that it is important to work together with the patient to create a plan with realistic expectations that leads to natural looking, exciting results.

By combining an extensive knowledge of human anatomy with a sense of symmetry and proportion, the patient’s desired look can be achieved. Helping patients achieve their goals and leave our office feeling refreshed is extremely fulfilling to me!” As a Nurse Practitioner for Dr. Birely, Melissa Streett administers the injectables, such as Botox and Dysport as well as various fillers. She also assists in the operating room. After a long career in Pediatric Specialty care, Melissa joins Dr. Birely’s team at Artistry in Plastic Surgery with enthusiasm and a fresh perspective.

Lisa utilizes her 13 years of working in women’s healthcare to benefit her patients as a Aesthetic Nurse Injector at Dr. Birely’s office. She will be performing injectables, CoolSculpting, Ultherapy, and other various procedures at Artistry in Plastic Surgery. Lisa enjoys connecting with her patients on a personal level to determine their needs, and how she can best help them to satisfy their goals. She also appreciates being able to use her skill of being bilingual in Spanish to communicate with Spanish speaking patients.

“My passion for aesthetics came long after I had my four children, and wanted to help people in their own personal journey to improve their self-confidence and feel great about themselves. I feel so fortunate to have this opportunity to have trained with two incredible injectors, Cheryl Sugar and Melissa Streett. At Artistry in Plastic Surgery the dedication to delivering excellent patient care is like no other.”

We are open and seeing patients!

In order to make the process as effective and safe as possible, we will be instituting several new measures:

  • Staff members will be wearing masks and the appropriate PPE during your visit. We also request that you wear a mask or face covering when coming to the office.
  • In order to minimize patient to patient interaction, we are asking you to call us from your car upon arrival to the parking lot.
  • Upon arrival and upon leaving the office, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer. This will be available at the front counter.
  • We will be scheduling patients with 15-minute gaps between appointments in order to disinfect rooms and to avoid patient to patient contact in the reception area.
  • If you are suffering from any upper respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms (cough, sneezing, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat, diarrhea, vomiting, etc), or if you have had recent contact with someone who is COVID-19 positive, please stay home and reschedule your appointment.
  • We ask that you refrain from bringing children or friends along with you to your appointment.
  • If you do not have an appointment and need to make a purchase or an appointment in person, please call our office at 410-828-9570 first so we can better assist you.
