To Samson Hair Restoration's physicians, hair restoration is equal measures of art and science. Although some surgeons concern themselves with follicle count and price per graft, the Samson team takes a collaborative, results-based approach, starting cases with artistic renderings of ideal scalps to give patients a clear idea of their post-op cranial canopy or what they would look like with fettuccini for hair. Staffers draw on the Quadrian hairline technique—which focuses on the front hairline to create a natural-looking coif—and plastic-surgery tricks to help to minimize donor-area scarring.
Petra Medi Spa enlists the aid of medical professionals, highly skilled aestheticians, and an arsenal of medical-grade technology to improve appearances with nonsurgical alternatives. Dr. Liliana Cohen—a board-certified neurologist—oversees the efforts of her team members as they provide cutting-edge care intended to fight everything from acne scars to wrinkles.
The center's fractional CO2 resurfacing laser improves skin tone while minimizing the appearance of pigmented blemishes, and the LightSheer cosmetic laser system zaps hair follicles, preventing the hairs from growing back as effectively. Salicylic chemical peels exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin and shrink oversized pores. Injectable dermal fillers—such as Restylane and Juvederm—help fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
Additionally, the center offers chiropractic care and massage therapy for visitors seeking relief from the chronic pains caused by giving piggyback rides to everyone in the grocery-store parking lot.
Dr. David Milstein shapes smoother, smaller silhouettes, tailoring a treatment plan to the patient's needs, goals, and budget. Dr. Milstein offers Liposculpture, which uses a micro canula to draw fat out of tiny incisions. He performs all Liposculpture procedures himself, and does not charge extra to use the laser-assisted Smartlipo method, if needed. Patients' testimonials tout the staff's warmth, friendliness, and expertise.
Dr. Saul Lahijani draws upon extensive experience and education as he works to help clients achieve their aesthetic dreams. He began his education at USC, where he earned his undergraduate degree before obtaining a doctorate of medicine at Ross University School of Medicine, finishing at the top of his class. He next performed several residencies at Yale and Vanderbilt, before staying an international fellowship in Barcelona. Today, he welcomes patients into his clinic for non-invasive and surgical treatments, wielding lasers and scalpels to sculpt bodies with the precision of a bionic Michelangelo.
Dr. Genevieve A. MacDonald has built her plastic surgery practice around the belief that adjustments to a patient's looks can have a positive, life-changing impact on their self-esteem. She specializes in procedures that redefine both the face and body, from face lifts to rhinoplasty, and from tummy tucks to breast augmentation. She also performs liposuction and liposculpture, but is known just as well for her pleasant bedside manner.
