With more than 20 years of experience, the permanent makeup expert at Endless Look has helped define features on a wide range of faces. "[I] love the creativity of permanent makeup," she says. She doesn't think of her job as giving a person one look for the rest of their lives; instead, she sees it as giving clients a look to start from. She strives to naturally enhance the unique features of every individual's face, trying simply to "help my client feel better about themselves."
She also points out that the advantages of the service extend beyond a boost in confidence. Permanent makeup endures a good night's sleep, a swim in the pool, or an intense workout. She also notes that clients who spend even just 15 minutes on makeup application a day could save 90 hours worth of time a year that could be better spent taking the SAT 22.5 times.

Dr. Sid Mirrafati is so experienced in breast augmentation surgery, you might say he wrote the book on it. Well, maybe not the whole book, but a chapter in the medical text Breast Augmentation: Principles and Practice, in which he explains the water-powered hydro-dissection technique. He has also published books on abdominoplasty and liposuction, as well as one on face-lifts, neck lifts, and other facial surgeries.
In his time away from his ink pot and feathered quill, he has performed more than 17,000 cosmetic surgery procedures, ranging from breast augmentations, reductions, and lifts to tummy tucks, face-lifts, and nose jobs. His clinic, Mira Aesthetic Medical Center, also offers nonsurgical services such as beauty injections, laser skin resurfacing, and laser hair removal.

At Newport Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Seify takes the time to explain the pros and cons of procedures so that patients can make informed decisions concerning their bodies. His services range from face-lifts, tucks, and augmentations to less invasive chemical peels and body contouring.
