Dr. Sid Mirrafati is so experienced in breast augmentation surgery, you might say he wrote the book on it. Well, maybe not the whole book, but a chapter in the medical text Breast Augmentation: Principles and Practice, in which he explains the water-powered hydro-dissection technique. He has also published books on abdominoplasty and liposuction, as well as one on face-lifts, neck lifts, and other facial surgeries.
In his time away from his ink pot and feathered quill, he has performed more than 17,000 cosmetic surgery procedures, ranging from breast augmentations, reductions, and lifts to tummy tucks, face-lifts, and nose jobs. His clinic, Mira Aesthetic Medical Center, also offers nonsurgical services such as beauty injections, laser skin resurfacing, and laser hair removal.

Botox ($390 for 33 units, the average quantity needed for best results) stops wrinkle-causing frown muscles in their tracks with a quick, noninvasive injection between the brows and a series of clown auditions. The 10-minute treatment continues its forehead-refurbishing effects over the next few days, perking up countenances for an average of three to four months.

Dr. Vu also offers free informative seminars on the procedures she offers and why store mannequins never seem to age.
