Dr. Mark Mandell-Brown, a triple-board-certified cosmetic surgeon, calls upon 25 years of experience to perform facial plastic and body cosmetic surgery that include face-lifts, tummy tucks, and rhinoplasty, earning inclusion in Cincinnati Magazine's Top Doctors list for Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery in 2013 and Plastic Surgery Practice’s Best of 2012 Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeons list. Dr. Mandell-Brown and medical aestheticians Erin Noplis and Debra Mauro boost patients' appearances with facials, waxing, and laser hair-removal. Amid earth-tone walls and elegant décor with modern paintings and sculptures, the practice offers the familiarity and confidentiality of a private office paired with the amenities of a hospital. As an expert in many areas, Dr. Mandell-Brown also performs breast augmentations and reconstructive surgeries, for which he is nationally known.
Permanent Perfection Permanent Cosmetics’ licensed beauticians upgrade clients' appearances with classic and uncommon spa services. During therapeutic cupping treatments, staffers create small pockets of suction to gently increase lymphatic flow, reduce toxins, contour bodies, and ameliorate scarring. To mold shapelier frames, technicians swaddle guests with slimming body wraps or melt fat with ultrasound liposuction. In addition to body treatments, the clinic offers teeth-whitening, facials, and permanent-makeup applications. Permanent Perfection's techs can also remove tattoos by using advanced technology or traveling back in time and trapping your past self in a net.
Drawing from more than 20 years of surgical experience, Dr. Lawrence Kurtzman restores the balance between patient and doctor by educating his clients, empowering them to make informed decisions regarding their cosmetic goals.

In addition to cosmetic surgeries, Dr. Kurtzman's center also refines patients' looks with noninvasive procedures, including chemical peels, aesthetic laser skin resurfacing, and texture-smoothing dermabrasions.
