"My first guest is a cosmetic surgeon who is an expert on quick-fix makeovers," Montel Williams announced to his studio audience on a fall day in 2007. "Please welcome Dr. Sofia Rubbani to the show!" After her introduction, Dr. Rubbani proceeded to straighten out a woman's crooked nose with dermal fillers, beef up a pair of thin lips, and erase spider veins with a laser, all in a clinic set up backstage.
Hailing from New York, Dr. Rubbani continues to tout the benefits of these speedy, nonsurgical procedures at Tucson Cosmetics. She expertly injects solutions, such as fillers, collagen, and plasma, to iron out facial wrinkles with minimal downtime. She also makes use of Thermage's radio-frequency energies to tighten skin and send secret messages to truckers. For those seeking more dramatic results, Dr. Rubbani surgically alters droopy eyelids, removes moles, and mends torn earlobes.

The resume of Dr.Borsand, president of The Body Sculpting Center, should put any prospective client at ease.

Plus, he co-authored an article on breast augmentation for the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and is the current president of the Arizona Society of Cosmetic Surgery.
Breast augmentation procedures are his specialty, and he spends a generous amount of time with each client as they consider treatment, doing his best to offer honest, realistic expectations of results. He understands that each person has their own reasons for seeking treatment, from the mother wanting to firm her breasts after pregnancy, to the cancer survivor seeking her former silhouette post-mastectomy.
