Not many plastic surgeons are also inventors. But Dr. Arian Mowlavi, founder of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute, designed a contraption called the "Mowlavi Umbilicator," which makes the newly formed innie belly buttons resulting from his tummy tucks look completely natural in a bikini or stuffed with lint.
In addition to lifting and tucking tummies, the board-certified plastic surgeon can surgically enhance nearly any area on the face or body that is causing its owner strife. He conducts many of these procedures in his Laguna Beach outpatient surgery center, which features an operating room and recovery suites, as well as discreet entrances and waiting areas to ensure patient privacy.

A trio of physicians?a dermatologist, an ophthalmic surgeon, and a plastic surgeon?keeps watch over both DermaBare offices, warding off signs of aging from wrinkles to cellulite. Registered nurses aim to obliterate unwanted hair at the root using one of three advanced laser hair-removal machines: the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, Candela GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro. Heated energy rays can also be pointed at faces to help encourage collagen production or send spider veins scattering off of legs and underneath the floorboards. DermaBare's other aesthetic treatments include dermal fillers, chemical peels, and plastic surgery treatments such as breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.
Dr. Frederick L. Stafford leads the team at Contours as they reshape physiques and rejuvenate skin. Fat-trimming procedures take the form of high-tech VelaShape and Endermologie treatments or weight-loss programs and personal training. Facials and beauty injectables keep wrinkles at bay, while lasers blast unwanted hair, unsightly spider veins, and slanderous thought bubbles. Meanwhile, large windows grant clients picturesque views of adjacent Lake Mission Viejo, at once calming nerves and lifting spirits.
"The philosophy of this practice is to combine excellent patient care with evidence-based medicine," says board-certified plastic surgeon Hisham Seify, MD, FACS. Dr. Seify has conducted extensive clinical investigations in the field of endoscopic plastic surgery. He shares his evidence-based discoveries by contributing chapters to medical textbooks and instructing future generations of cyborg physicians at the UCLA School of Medicine. At Newport Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Seify takes the time to explain the pros and cons of procedures so that patients can make informed decisions concerning their bodies. His services range from face-lifts, tucks, and augmentations to less invasive chemical peels and body contouring.
While patients dream of refined physiques in the waiting room, sunlight pours between gilded curtains. On either side of the window, a flat-screen TV mirrors a painting of Parisian streets rendered in oils and vinegars.
At Pacific Women's Center Aesthetics, a team of experts works together to provide medical-grade skincare services to its clients.

Microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and clinical facials also target specific skin concerns. Once skin is looking its best, women can turn their attention to eyelashes, adding length and thickness with lash extensions.
