A board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Omeed Memar specializes in liposuction and fat transfer, holds a clinical assistant professorship at Northwestern University, and serves as the medical director of the Academic Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute. He designs medical devices for fat transfer treatments, and his research has been showcased in leading scientific publications, making him a sought-after expert for speaking engagements and television appearances.
Dr. Memar combines his 12+ years of surgical expertise with an understanding of what it takes for clients to feel comfortable in their skin. A member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, he stays ahead of the latest advancements and can correct aesthetic imbalances ranging from sagging cheeks to acne scars to being a painting by Picasso. Blemishes as varied as spider veins, skin tags, age spots, and birthmarks can be zapped away with a medical-grade laser. Photofacials, peels, and microdermabrasion smooth away dead skin cells, while hair transplants revive depleted manes and resurfacing treatments take years off of hands. Minimal incision face-lifts, tucks, and liposuction, meanwhile, renovate bodies with more permanent solutions. Dr. Memar also specializes in restoring the youthful sparkle to eyes. Drawing on more than 10 years of experience, his eyelid lifts erase the bags and excess skin that drag winks down.
Many things prepared Dr. Michael Malczewski for his career in cosmetic and plastic surgery—a significant one was studying under the then-president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Now, he harnesses his extensive education to perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries at his busy northwest Indiana practice. Although he's an in-demand surgeon, he and his staff emphasize individual care, taking the time to answer clients' questions and concerns while also cultivating a comfortable environment. Besides cosmetic surgery, the staff also offers injectables, chemical peels, and laser treatments.
Dr.Mark Mass use his considerable medical and technological might to help erase the unerasable. Harnessing the power of RevLite SI lasers, he carefully target the pigment deposits in unwanted artwork, breaking them up so that the body can discard them naturally. A cooling device helps to ease or prevent discomfort throughout the procedures, whereas detailed aftercare instructions make scarring unlikely and help clients convince rejected tattoos not to seek revenge. The clinic also deploys its laser fleet in the spirit of generosity: Its Dots Program helps cancer survivors remove radiation tattoos after treatment has concluded.
Under the direction of Dr. William Evans, the medical aestheticians at Enfuse Laser Center & Medical Spa work to elevate their patients' self image with a full range of anti-aging and body contouring treatments. The staff uses advanced technology during services, from lasers that address sun damage, body hair, and unwanted tattoos, to injectables that alleviate wrinkles and furrows on the face. The clinic also specializes in NeoGraft hair transplants, an advanced method of hair restoration. Using an automated device to quickly harvest follicles from the donor area and move them to the recipient area, the process is less painful and invasive than traditional methods or training a chinchilla to sit on your scalp.
