When he's not writing articles in celebrated medical journals, appearing on radio and television, or delivering lectures across the globe, Dr. Ayman El-Attar treats faces and bodies with his natural-looking cosmetic surgeries. At Derma Laser Center, which he founded in 2002, Dr. El-Attar performs numerous nonsurgical procedures that rid skin of acne, remove tattoos, and eliminate unwanted hair and veins. Alternatively, his surgical procedures transplant hair, transfer fat to different body regions, and reduce breasts without scarring.
In addition to cosmetic surgeries, Derma Laser Center's personnel pamper guests with facials that incorporate elements such as an antioxidant vitamin C firming mask, which exfoliates skin more effectively than daily orange-juice baths.

A board-certified plastic surgeon, fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and 2008 president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. D’Amico has bolstered the self-confidence of his patients for a span of more than 20 years. CoolSculpting treatments employ a pain-free, nonsurgical alternative to eradicating extra pounds that trespass on waistline and belly territories. Ideal candidates possess small amounts of body fat and maintain healthy lifestyles of regular calisthenics and stolen-gym-towel collections; these select individuals can seek to reduce love-handle presence from 22% to 25%. CoolSculpting terminates corpulent corpuscles with a selective cooling device, allowing the body to purge chilled fat cells through natural execratory functions. Like swimming in tubs of gelatin, this painless procedure requires no anesthesia, and clients may return to daily life after the one-hour process concludes.
Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels. Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such non-invasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
