A cosmetic procedure might not be the perfect fit for everyone. That's why Dr. Nathan W. Patterson and his team at Patterson Plastic Surgery take the time to build a relationship with their patients, ensuring expectations and goals are set before any treatments are performed. Dr. Patterson then draws on his years of experience to perform surgical procedures, from breast augmentations and tummy tucks to face and body lifts. Nonsurgical alternatives use lasers and injected solutions to refresh faces, rather than simply covering them in spaghetti sauce.
Dr. Steven F. Weiner, a Johns Hopkins–trained, board-certified head, neck, and facial plastic surgeon, established The Aesthetic Clinique as a non-surgical and minimally invasive practice performing cosmetic procedures with the help of four full-time aestheticians and a registered nurse. Patients consult with the doctor, who draws on 17 years of Botox experience and his status as a Platinum Provider of Botox, to target pesky wrinkles in areas such as foreheads, upper necks, brows, lips, and cotton dress shirts. The entire procedure usually takes only 5–10 minutes, but effects do not become apparent for up to five days. Results of the treatment may last three–six months, allowing patients to pose as intrepid teenage sleuths for an unprecedented amount of time.
Under the steady watch of Dr. Staggers and Dr. Bolling, Eastern Shore Plastic Surgery's staff refurbishes epidermises in a pristine clinic. During a laser hair-removal session, beams scour swaths of skin for unwelcome turf, and a cooling system keeps clients comfortable. Six weeks after treatment, clients return to Eastern Shore to banish any hairs that believed the exile was merely temporary. A total of six sessions may be required to achieve ultimate smoothness.
