Dr. Dean Kane's pursuit of beauty has led him across the country and beyond. His specialized training in plastic surgery and medicine began at the University of Puerto Rico, then continued with residencies at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore and the University of Florida. Today, Dr. Kane shares his knowledge of plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques with up-and-coming doctors as a clinical professor at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and beautifies patients at his plastic-surgery practice.
From the moment clients enter the couch- and art-adorned waiting room to the time they grapple through the skylight, the attentive staff cater to them with personal attention. Before treatment⎯such as tummy tucks, liposuction, and Botox injections⎯clients consult with Dr. and Lauri Kane to ask questions about procedures as well as outline their beauty goals. Post-procedure, the clinical or operating-room nurse oversees patients through the entire recovery process.
At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry of Maryland, Howard Rothschild, DDS uses his 30 years of experience and extensive training to care for patients. After spending two years with the 101st Airborne Division, Dr. Rothschild went on to teach as an assistant professor at the University of Maryland Dental School and provide dental services to the Baltimore Colts.
Dr. Rothschild and his team furthered their education at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, where they learned about cutting-edge techniques, such as porcelain-veneer smile makeovers. Other high-tech equipment includes a computerized anesthetic system that minimizes discomfort and the CEREC system, which allows staff to fabricate ceramic restorations in one visit rather than outfitting teeth with temporary crowns or tiny motorcycle helmets.
There’s something about Dr. Angel Purdy that inspires confidence in her clients. Perhaps it’s the fact that she’s a native of Baltimore, but it more likely has to do with the professional Obagi, Arbonne, and Kinerase products she uses to treat skin during her chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. Dr. Purdy also wants her clients to have confidence in themselves, so she helps them feel comfortable in their own skin with laser hair-removal treatments and injectables that smooth away wrinkles. She also performs cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to reduce the appearance of scars, tighten and lift skin, and remove phantom tails that make it painful to sit down.
The Bowling Classic hosted by Haruki Nakamura and other Ravens players gives football fans the chance to meet up to six players while bowling for a charitable cause. Attendees talk football and strategize cross-lane tackles as they bowl, wander, and mingle with Haruki, who will spend time at each lane alongside Ravens players and fans. Guests can compare an 8"x10" signed photo to Nakamura's actual likeness as they bid in a silent auction or enter raffles to win Ravens memorabilia and tickets. The winning team will receive a basket of autographed Ravens items, which they can hoist overhead or spike to the ground in victory. Bowlers can whet whistles and toast to big-league dreams at the full bar or nosh on concessions available from area vendors. Part of the event's proceeds will be donated to a charity of Haruki's choice.
The muscle tutors at Fitness Together will work with you to determine your goals (drop pounds, run a marathon, get strong enough to finally confront Douglas) and develop a customized workout plan designed to help you reach your true fitness potential. They’ll supervise your squats, offer nutritional advice, and push you until you see results. Individualized attention means it’s all about you—your trainer can point out when you’re doing a stretch incorrectly, help you tone the trouble zones, and push you to keep going when you’d otherwise quit or become distracted by the fragile beauty of a passing hummingbird.
