For Dr. Goodnight, it's not about instant results: "I want to be able to get together with my patients when we’re all in our 90s to talk about what a wonderful life we’ve all had and how great we still feel and look." To that end, he joins his wife, Marianne, a certified nurse, in taking a whole body approach to long-term beauty.
Board-certified in four different medical fields, including facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Goodnight can revivify clients from the inside out with services that range from hormone replacement therapies to surgical face-lifts. But the transformations don't end in the treatment room. As certified fitness trainers, the husband and wife team educates clients on how to increase their health through nutrition, exercise, and avoiding open manholes.
Dr. Jeffrey A. Rapaport, founder and medical director of Cosmetic Skin and Surgery Center, has been practicing dermatology for more than 30 years. In those three decades, his work and achievements in the field have earned him a spot on U.S. News & World Report's list of Top Doctors. He has patented three skincare products, become a training physician for many injectable beauty solutions, and written articles for a number of beauty publications. His passion for skin aesthetics has also drawn him to master the most cutting-edge laser treatments, addressing imperfections such as wrinkles, unwanted tattoos, and cellulite.
In a cozy, brown-shuttered house that you might mistake for someone's home, Dr. Alfred Sofer is changing people's lives with cutting-edge medical technology. Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield's impressive facilities include an imaging room, where Dr. Sofer reveals sun damage and other conditions with the Visia complexion-analysis device. Dr. Sofer also uses the Vectra imaging system?which he discussed on WTNH 8's Connecticut Style program?to simulate the outcome of surgery or the addition of a second head in a realistic, three-dimensional model. He employs the advanced visualization tool to prepare patients for cosmetic and restorative procedures, which he performs either in the center's procedure room or within an accredited surgery center or hospital setting. If you walk up the office's charming, white-and-hardwood staircase to the second floor, you'll find members of Dr. Sofer's medical staff enhancing faces with nonsurgical skincare and laser treatments, including laser hair removal, photofacials, and dermal fillers.
With double board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Sofer has experience in the most delicate procedures. His training includes a microvascular and hand-surgery fellowship at the Christine M. Kleinert Institute, the site of the first hand transplant in the United States. His extensive knowledge and caring nature earned him the 2012 Best Cosmetic Surgeon award from readers of Fairfield County Weekly.
When Dr. W. Mark Warfel was in high school, his talent as a sculptor earned him a scholarship to art school. In addition to learning the finer points of color and composition in his studio-art classes, he pursued a premed degree. After college came medical school, followed by multiple residencies, and today he's a plastic surgeon with his own practice.
Dr. Warfel's background, like the baking-soda volcano Michelangelo glued to the Sistine Chapel, represents the intersection of art and science. He uses what he learned in both fields to craft new looks for patients. He also continues to refine his techniques to ensure safe, minimally invasive procedures. His face-lifts, for instance, leave smaller scars than ones using traditional methods. Patients can also opt for nonsurgical services, such as laser skin resurfacing, to achieve fresher, more youthful-looking complexions with little downtime.
Armed with an array of board certifications, professional memberships, and awards, Dr. Michael Macri helps clients enhance their aesthetic appeal with treatments such as liposuction, laser skin resurfacing, and beauty injections. His accolades include Best Cosmetic Surgeon from The Record, Top Doctor from (201) Magazine, and Bergen County Super Doctor from (201) Health. The med-spa was also selected as one of the Best Spas in Bergen County by Bergen Health & Life. Additionally, Dr. Macri holds master status as an injector of dermal fillers, and he's trained in six slimming varieties of liposuction.
As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however?invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures.
For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins.
In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
