Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates take a two-pronged approach to beauty, with a doctor heading up each branch of the practice. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Shabnam Shahabadi treats a variety of skin conditions, including pediatric skin conditions, and provides adults with long-term skin and cosmetic treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing and Botox. And a board-certified medical aesthetician relies on her more than 10 years of experience in cosmetic dermatology while performing everything from microdermabrasion and chemical peels to scar revision and general skincare.
Dr. Reza Mirali (Miraliakbari), a board-certified plastic surgeon, helps patients make more drastic changes with plastic surgery. His fellowship training in microsurgical reconstruction allows him to use the most advanced reconstructive options on patients with facial trauma, burns, and disfiguring afflictions.
"Facial surgery is much like making up a bed nicely," says Dr. Daria Hamrah on his website. "If the mattress is lumpy, there isn?t much point in spreading a nice bedcover over it (that is, if the bones and muscles are problematic, fixing the skin doesn?t help much)."
Dr. Hamrah, who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and a licensed facial cosmetic surgeon, lets this philosophy guide him, focusing on both the face's surface and, more importantly, on the underlying structure that supports it as he reshapes noses, lifts brows, adds lip implants, or attaches third eyes. He further beautifies faces with oral surgical procedures and med-spa treatments, all performed within an office that evokes the tranquility of a spa with its warm brown walls and flower-lined hallways while still maintaining a hospital-quality operating room.
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.
When not volunteering for the Knock Out Abuse program or Luz del Sol, a charitable plastic-surgery organization, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rondi K. Walker tends to patients at her own Foxhall Square office. Her hands-on approach is evident during consultations and pre- and post-operative visits as she works directly with each patient and ensures they fully understand plastic surgery and its objectives before sprucing up exteriors with traditional cosmetic surgeries, such as rhinoplasty and tummy tucks. As an alternative to botox, she treats fine lines with the FDA-approved Xeomin. She also provides Ultherapy—a sound-wave-based aesthetic treatment that tightens and tones the skin without scuffing it—dermal fillers, sclerotherapy vein removal, and laser skin resurfacing, which sends miniature laser-powered zambonis rolling across faces to create a smoother appearance.
Even though he's a trained cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rassael knows that not every beauty concern requires going under the knife. That's why he and his team at Millennium Medical offer laser treatments, beauty injections, and noninvasive body contouring in addition to surgical procedures such as lifts, tucks, and traditional liposuction. From lasers that diminish leg veins and unwanted hair to Lipo-Light devices designed to slim down trouble spots, the clinic's state-of-the-art facilities feature a range of noninvasive equipment to rejuvenate complexions.
Dr. Navin Singh boasts an impressive resume. He holds degrees from Harvard, Brown, and Johns Hopkins, and has dual-board certification in plastic surgery. He believes that his patients deserve nothing but the best from him and his practice, leading him to constantly strive for various fields of excellence. At Washingtonian Plastic Surgery, Dr. Singh and his associates help clients look their best with a full range of surgical and non-surgical procedures, including laser skin resurfacing, skin tightening, chemical peels, and Botox and filler injections.
