The Studio at Painful Pleasures isn’t your standard piercing parlor. The 5,000-square-foot showroom has five fully furnished studios, each with their own TV and comfortable TatSoul chairs, as well as an educational center where they hold classes on piercing techniques. Hyperrealistic, ethereal, and vibrantly colored artwork designed by the in-house artists covers the walls—a testament to the detailed work they do. The team is also complemented by two resident tattoo-removal specialists who have mastered the art of buffing off unwanted images, such as the tally marks on your arm that remind you how old you are.
Dr. Dean Kane's pursuit of beauty has led him across the country and beyond. His specialized training in plastic surgery and medicine began at the University of Puerto Rico, then continued with residencies at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore and the University of Florida. Today, Dr. Kane shares his knowledge of plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques with up-and-coming doctors as a clinical professor at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and beautifies patients at his plastic-surgery practice.
From the moment clients enter the couch- and art-adorned waiting room to the time they grapple through the skylight, the attentive staff cater to them with personal attention. Before treatment⎯such as tummy tucks, liposuction, and Botox injections⎯clients consult with Dr. and Lauri Kane to ask questions about procedures as well as outline their beauty goals. Post-procedure, the clinical or operating-room nurse oversees patients through the entire recovery process.

At Artistry in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Brent Birely uses a combination of medical know-how and artistic talent to transform patients' exteriors. As a physician who is board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc. and has been practicing for more than 15 years, Dr. Birely has the expertise to perform complex procedures such as breast augmentations, breast lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, face-lifts, and eyelid enhancements.

At The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg and Dr. Michele Shermak de-crinkle visages with minimally invasive Dysport injections administered during an approximately 15-minute procedure. The Dysport formula works by temporarily relaxing subdermal muscles, which unclenches wrinkles to reduce the appearance of forehead furrows and frown lines caused by watching kittens slip on banana peels. The quick and nearly painless injections require no downtime, and allow newly ironed-out patients to resume normal activity with minimal delay.
