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.
