Education is key for board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marcus Crawford. After graduating from Baylor College of Medicine, he went on to receive extensive training in cutting-edge reconstructive techniques at MD Anderson Cancer Center, which eventually led him to volunteer for a mission with Operation Smile in Lima, Peru, where he worked to repair cleft lips and other palate deformities in children. He also believes his patients should be properly educated about the procedures they undergo at his namesake office, and so Dr. Crawford and his team discuss each treatment option during a thorough consultation that reveals each patient’s beauty needs and aesthetic goals, and chart the best course of treatment.
Along with cosmetic surgery for the face and body, Crawford Plastic Surgery also offers nonsurgical med-spa services that include microdermabrasion and wrinkle-reducing dermal fillers, such as Botox and Juvéderm. The office is also outfitted with disposable permanent-makeup equipment, which technicians use to tattoo organic, cosmetic-colored ink onto skin, thus defining the brows, lips, and eyelids, or camouflaging scars caused by a malfunctioning magical wand.

A Vanta's Hair Restoration Clinic can add curls to hair with perms or remove them with Japanese hair straightening treatments. The stylists there can also cut, color, and condition hair, and they can install weaves and extensions. But the clinic's most important work may be giving clients full heads of hair to begin with; it specializes in non-surgical hair replacement for people with alopecia, cancer, burns, trichotillomania, and other conditions.
For more than 40 years, the doctors and staff at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery have worked to beautify clients inside and out with cosmetic plastic-surgery procedures. The center's three board-certified plastic surgeons don't just fulfill the required minimum to form a surgeon folk-rock band—they also furnish the diverse specialties necessary to lavish their patients with services ranging from facelifts and rhinoplasty to liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. Meanwhile, an in-house anti-aging physician treats hormone imbalances and coaches guests on losing pounds through the hCG diet. The team also bolsters patients' appearances with nonsurgical procedures including facial injectables, laser hair and tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores stretched by spelunking freckles.
The interior of Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery conjures a sense of serenity with its rich wood floors complemented by walls in quiet earth tones such as forest, sand, and ozone layer. Contemporary artwork hangs over unimposing furniture in the waiting room, and a more formal reception space beckons visitors with pastoral art and an oriental area rug.
Before co-founding her own medical aesthetics practice, Dr. Marcia V. Byrd studied the intricacies of cosmetic surgery under the direction of internationally respected surgeons such as Dr. Giorgio Fischer, the pioneer of modern liposuction. This venerable training combined with a 20-year career lends the clients of Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center peace of mind during any of the center's transformative aesthetic procedures. Byrd's signature Soft Beautification Peel helps to return complexions to their natural, youthful state by dispersing wrinkles, shallow scarring, and freckles, whether they are natural or the result of an extended nap on a book of braille. Injectible beauty enhancers such as Botox or Juvéderm iron out creases and fine lines, and body-sculpting procedures and laser treatments help to tailor and tone overall appearances.
