Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jamal Yousefi's attention to aesthetic detail telegraphs his belief that plastic surgery is an art. Dr. Yousefi and the staff of Younger Image Plastic Surgery Center flatten fine lines and wrinkles with precise injections of Botox and Dysport. He also fashions slimmer silhouettes with traditional and laser liposuction, redesigns façades with procedures such as face-lifts, eyelid surgery, and chin and cheek implants, and augments bodies with abdominoplasty, tummy tucks, and breast reductions. The doctor even enjoys using his free time to hone his artistic skills by drawing, sculpting with clay, and removing the appendices of statues.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. David Berman sculpts bodies with 30–120 minutes of deftly wielded laser light, melting away fat in minimally invasive surgical procedures. The Cynosure SmartLipo TriPlex employs a laser fiber inserted under the skin to rupture fat cells while gently heating the dermis to tighten and stimulate collagen growth. The small size of the fiber minimizes swelling and bruising caused by more invasive procedures, and local anesthesia keeps treated areas from feeling pain or being vulnerable during posttreatment tickle fights.
Dr. Roy Heron, a bariatric specialist and veteran member of numerous local medical societies, helps patients attain svelte, healthy physiques through personalized weight-loss plans that highlight his signature low-carbohydrate philosophy. Backed by a motivating staff of nutritional counselors, Dr. Heron had performed more than 1,100 SmartLipo procedures and lends his extensive medical wisdom to the customized programs, each of which is tailored around clients’ unique health histories, dietary habits, and jumping-jack preferences. Tools such as BMI assessments, B12 injections, and appetite suppressants assist patients throughout the program, and minimally invasive laser treatments can help augment results by trimming lingering fat. To further fortify results, Dr. Heron can give thoughtful recommendations on valuable local services, such as health spas, fitness clubs, superhero meetings, and dermatology offices.

Drs. Jennifer Miller and Steve Wander believe that slimming down shouldn't require surgery. At Maryland Laser Fat Loss, the duo specializes in laser lipo, which uses cold-laser light to spur fat cells to release their contents. The fat is then metabolized and eliminated by the body's natural processes. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, these treatments can become even more effective at lessening circumferences. Shorter sessions also can be scheduled to specifically address the appearance of cellulite. Besides their signature technology, the medical professionals also offer services such as nutritional counseling and detox programs.
