Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates take a two-pronged approach to beauty, with a doctor heading up each branch of the practice. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Shabnam Shahabadi treats a variety of skin conditions, including pediatric skin conditions, and provides adults with long-term skin and cosmetic treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing and Botox. And a board-certified medical aesthetician relies on her more than 10 years of experience in cosmetic dermatology while performing everything from microdermabrasion and chemical peels to scar revision and general skincare.
Dr. Reza Mirali (Miraliakbari), a board-certified plastic surgeon, helps patients make more drastic changes with plastic surgery. His fellowship training in microsurgical reconstruction allows him to use the most advanced reconstructive options on patients with facial trauma, burns, and disfiguring afflictions.
Eye Doctors of Washington offers Latisse eyelash treatments (regularly $120 per box) to peepers wishing to add more pizzazz to eyelids. With Latisse's eyelash growth treatment, clients will apply a Food and Drug Administration–approved solution to their eyelashes every night before going to bed. The procedure results in longer, fuller, and darker lashes, maximizing batting and blinking effects. One box covers one month of treatment, with full results generally seen in three to four months. As a bonus, Eye Doctors of Washington is throwing in a 20% discount on up to two additional boxes, beyond the two included with this deal. This Groupon also includes a consultation with one of Eye Doctors of Washington's array of ophthalmologists and optometrists.
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Kim Doud Galli and her skillful staff youthify beauty-seekers with custom chemical peels. During each 30-minute treatment, technicians sheathe epidermises in a naturally derived glycolic-acid solution designed to slough off superficial layers of dead skin, fading fine lines and to-do lists scrawled on cheeks in ballpoint pen. Clients can also opt to magnify results with multiple peels. Afterward, some faces may experience mild peeling as the skin regenerates, eventually revealing a refreshed complexion as a chorus of pores sings a breathy “ahhhh.”
When not volunteering for the Knock Out Abuse program or Luz del Sol, a charitable plastic-surgery organization, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rondi K. Walker tends to patients at her own Foxhall Square office. Her hands-on approach is evident during consultations and pre- and post-operative visits as she works directly with each patient and ensures they fully understand plastic surgery and its objectives before sprucing up exteriors with traditional cosmetic surgeries, such as rhinoplasty and tummy tucks. As an alternative to botox, she treats fine lines with the FDA-approved Xeomin. She also provides Ultherapy—a sound-wave-based aesthetic treatment that tightens and tones the skin without scuffing it—dermal fillers, sclerotherapy vein removal, and laser skin resurfacing, which sends miniature laser-powered zambonis rolling across faces to create a smoother appearance.
"Facial surgery is much like making up a bed nicely," says Dr. Daria Hamrah on his website. "If the mattress is lumpy, there isn?t much point in spreading a nice bedcover over it (that is, if the bones and muscles are problematic, fixing the skin doesn?t help much)."
Dr. Hamrah, who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and a licensed facial cosmetic surgeon, lets this philosophy guide him, focusing on both the face's surface and, more importantly, on the underlying structure that supports it as he reshapes noses, lifts brows, adds lip implants, or attaches third eyes. He further beautifies faces with oral surgical procedures and med-spa treatments, all performed within an office that evokes the tranquility of a spa with its warm brown walls and flower-lined hallways while still maintaining a hospital-quality operating room.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jamal Yousefi's attention to aesthetic detail telegraphs his belief that plastic surgery is an art. Dr. Yousefi and the staff of Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center flatten fine lines and wrinkles with precise injections of Botox and Dysport. He also fashions slimmer silhouettes with traditional and laser liposuction, redesigns façades with procedures such as face-lifts, eyelid surgery, and chin and cheek implants, and augments bodies with abdominoplasty, tummy tucks, and breast reductions. The doctor even enjoys using his free time to hone his artistic skills by drawing, sculpting with clay, and removing the appendices of statues.
