Dr. Victoria Karlinsky looks for ways to restore patients' self-confidence through cosmetic surgery. After training alongside expert bariatric surgeons, Dr. Karlinsky learned the art of weight-loss surgeries and lifts. Dr. Karlinsky's attention to detail extends to her face-lift, eyelid, ear, and lip surgeries, and also accounts for her winning streak in pickup games of Simon Says. Each procedure takes place after patients explain their beauty goals in a one-on-one consultation and Dr. Karlinsky maps out a viable route to achieve them. Dr. Karlinsky brandishes board certifications in both general and cosmetic surgery and can communicate to clients in English, Russian, or scalpel charades.
Board-certified eyelid surgeon Dr. Irene Gladstein heads ENHANCE Aesthetic Institute, a haven of anti-aging treatments of both the surgical and nonsurgical varieties. Brow lifts and lid lifts correct tired, drooping features, while facial liposuction restores contours to ill-defined necks, chins, and cheeks that have been pinched out of shape by uncles and aunts. Less invasive interventions include laser resurfacing, beauty injections, and Pelleve skin-tightening sessions. Meanwhile, for aesthetic issues located below the neckline, Dr. Gladstein also offers Venus Freeze slimming treatments which target cellulite and combat fat deposits.
As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however—invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures.
For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins.
In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
Dr. Michelle Copeland, a Harvard-schooled plastic surgeon, brings more than 20 years of surgical experience to her Manhattan practice and a passion for healthy complexions to her self-titled skincare line. In her office located across the street from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Dr. Copeland nips, tucks, and augments, and also zaps wrinkles, fat, veins, and body hair with noninvasive laser treatments. Dermal fillers plump and firm laugh crevasses and frown valleys, as microdermabrasion and therapeutic facials leave skin as youthful and glowing as a baby lightning bug.
Dr. Copeland originally developed her namesake skincare line to treat her patients’ need, but with such successful results, she now peddles her healing serums and salves to the public. From mild, nonfoaming cleansers to exfoliating alpha-hydroxyl creams, these regimens help fight the signs of aging and quench thirsty pores. An August 2011 Lucky magazine giveaway featured 1-ounce pots of Emerge facelift cream, each round jar chock-full of lavender aroma, antioxidant compounds, and collagen-boosting elves.
Board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Joseph Racanelli forges fresh faces and beautiful bodies with the latest technology. Like resurfacing cracks and crevasses in a majestic marble statue, Botox injections smooth foreheads, eliminate crow's feet, and remove nests of invading pigeons to make faces ready for display. Sessions take around 30–60 minutes and results typically appear after about two weeks. Call for an appointment.
