Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nia Banks and her team of trained beautifiers offer an eclectic array of appearance-boosting services. Surgical options to fulfill patients’ Christmas wishes include tummy tucks, liposuction, and rhinoplasty. For a lighter touch, nonsurgical treatments include injections of Botox—the wrinkle-fading serum that tricks muscles into thinking they are bears that must fall into deep hibernation for months.
Aesthetic Laser and Vein Center specializes in laser and other light-based beautification treatments, ranging from laser hair removal to body sculpting. Overgrown sections of skin can work their way toward hairlessness with three laser hair removal treatments. These gentle, non-invasive procedures are suitable for all skin types and utilize lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) to destroy the hair follicle and permanently reduce hair growth. Although the trio of treatments will wage short-term war to prevent the arrival of hairs from the future, multiple treatments are recommended for permanent victory over face and body fur. After the sessions, patients can immediately return to normal activities, such as work, school, and unilateral arguments with disposable razors.
Acclaimed surgeon Dr. Craig Person's skilled hands change looks and lives. Doubly board-certified in plastic and hand surgery, he specializes in transforming clients’ appearances with procedures including lifts, augmentations, and enhancements. Nonsurgical alternatives, using injections of products such as Botox and Juvéderm, work to ease the wrinkles accumulated after years of frowning at riddles. Dr. Person also partners with a skincare professional, who consults with patients and provides skin-smoothing treatments.
Board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Suzanne Kim Doud Galli uses a steady hand and keen eye to refresh and revamp visages. She performs total facelifts and rhinoplasties to reshape and tighten facial features for a more youthful look. Dr. Doud Galli puts away her scalpel for noninvasive procedures, including chemical peels that remove the top layers of damaged skin.

Consistently considered one of the city’s top tattoo destination since it opened two decades ago, Fatty’s is actually a fairly friendly environment, staffed with knowledgeable artists who are willing to walk the nervous through every stop of the process. Much of the artwork by those same creative types can be found hanging on the walls, including psychedelic pieces by Fatty himself, who primarily handles large-scale custom tattoos. The shop does piercings as well.
