I lost a lot of weight, and am looking for a plastic surgeon recommendation in the Alexandria, VA/DC area to help with some skin removal and breast reconstruction.

After losing a significant amount of weight (fairly slowly), I'd like to meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss my options in dealing with sagging and extra skin. I have this in the usual places (breasts, arms/underarms, inner thighs, stomach), and while I think I can live with it in some places more than others, I'd like to meet with someone to discuss what's the best course of action for me. At the top of my list is wanting to have my breasts fixed. The other things bother me, but less so.
I need a plastic surgeon who:
- is experienced in dealing with the after-effects of considerable weight-loss
- will help return me to where I naturally should have been had I not been overweight/obese; for example, I don't need my former larger breasts - I'm perfectly happy with more humble, smaller, breasts. I would like to not have any implants put in to return me to something big - but I have a lot of sagging skin.
I live in Alexandria, but anyone in the greater DC area would still be ok. Many thanks.
- preferably a female, but this isn't a must.
- will not sugar-coat things and tell me all the amazing, wonderful things they'll do to make me look fantastic. I'm the kind of person who would much rather hear the honest truth about the expectations and what's involved, even if painful and negative, so that I can go in fully informed.
