In a cozy, brown-shuttered house that you might mistake for someone's home, Dr. Alfred Sofer is changing people's lives with cutting-edge medical technology. Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield's impressive facilities include an imaging room, where Dr. Sofer reveals sun damage and other conditions with the Visia complexion-analysis device. Dr. Sofer also uses the Vectra imaging system?which he discussed on WTNH 8's Connecticut Style program?to simulate the outcome of surgery or the addition of a second head in a realistic, three-dimensional model. He employs the advanced visualization tool to prepare patients for cosmetic and restorative procedures, which he performs either in the center's procedure room or within an accredited surgery center or hospital setting. If you walk up the office's charming, white-and-hardwood staircase to the second floor, you'll find members of Dr. Sofer's medical staff enhancing faces with nonsurgical skincare and laser treatments, including laser hair removal, photofacials, and dermal fillers.
With double board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Sofer has experience in the most delicate procedures. His training includes a microvascular and hand-surgery fellowship at the Christine M. Kleinert Institute, the site of the first hand transplant in the United States. His extensive knowledge and caring nature earned him the 2012 Best Cosmetic Surgeon award from readers of Fairfield County Weekly.
