Leah joined New Image Plastic Surgery in March 2018 as our practice manager. She wears many hats to help us meet and exceed our clients’ expectations, including interacting with patients on a daily basis and performing some of our cosmetic treatments. Leah strives for excellence in patient care and comfort to ensure that every part of your experience with New Image Plastic Surgery is welcoming, supportive and customized to your goals.

Prior to joining our practice, Leah worked in the mental health field doing human resources, marketing and contracting. She also managed a multi-provider cosmetic practice in Richmond, VA. When asked to share what she loves about working at New Image Plastic Surgery, Leah says: “We have so many treatment options for patients these days and Dr. Gartside is very hands-on. This means we can offer multiple options at our practice and create a custom plan for each individual.” 

Leah enjoys exploring the areas outside of Northern Virginia when she’s not hard at work helping Dr. Gartside transform patients’ lives. Visiting new wineries and restaurants with her friends and family is one of her favorite ways to spend her time outside of the office. She is also an avid reader and traveler. 


Christine has been a key member of the New Image Plastic Surgery team for four years. She joined our practice after working as a patient care manager in Beverly Hills, where she fell in love with both the beautiful Southern California weather and the world of plastic surgery. Her knowledge and experience in the aesthetics and cosmetic industry make her attentive in her interactions with patients and committed to providing superior care.

Christine understands that having surgery, whether for cosmetic or medical purposes, can be intimidating and overwhelming for many patients. She will assist in making your experience with New Image Plastic Surgery enjoyable, accepting, comfortable and safe from beginning to end, helping you look and feel amazing now and for years to come. “At NIPS we take pride in the services we offer and want to treat our patients like family,” she says. This approach helps our clients to feel welcomed, well cared for and at ease in our offices.

Outside of her work with New Image Plastic Surgery, Christine enjoys spending time with her family, exploring wineries and playing with her two dogs, Pinky and Pucci.
