Physician Assistant

“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.
