"Facial surgery is much like making up a bed nicely," says Dr. Daria Hamrah on his website. "If the mattress is lumpy, there isn’t much point in spreading a nice bedcover over it (that is, if the bones and muscles are problematic, fixing the skin doesn’t help much)."
Dr. Hamrah, who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and a licensed facial cosmetic surgeon, lets this philosophy guide him, focusing on both the face's surface and, more importantly, on the underlying structure that supports it as he reshapes noses, lifts brows, adds lip implants, or attaches third eyes. He further beautifies faces with oral surgical procedures and med-spa treatments, all performed within an office that evokes the tranquility of a spa with its warm brown walls and flower-lined hallways while still maintaining a hospital-quality operating room.
Even though he's a trained cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rassael knows that not every beauty concern requires going under the knife. That's why he and his team at Millennium Medical offer laser treatments, beauty injections, and noninvasive body contouring in addition to surgical procedures such as lifts, tucks, and traditional liposuction. From lasers that diminish leg veins and unwanted hair to Lipo-Light devices designed to slim down trouble spots, the clinic's state-of-the-art facilities feature a range of noninvasive equipment to rejuvenate complexions and expertly tailor birthday suits.

After earning an undergraduate degree in natural sciences at Johns Hopkins and an MD from Columbia University, a desire to meld science with art motivated Dr. Paul Thesiger to pursue a career in plastic surgery. Dr. Thesiger, who was born and raised in Jamaica, followed his growing passion around the world for a year as part of a fellowship program, performing cleft-lip, palate, and hand surgery for impoverished children in nine countries. Now, in his private practice, Dr. Thesiger and his partner, Dr. Tavallali, constantly educate themselves on innovations in their field while beautifying faces and bodies with an array of procedures. Nonsurgical Endermologie treatments diminish cellulite, and visages glow brighter than a self-aware lamp after chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing, and Botox.
People might not think of surgery as a creative field, but Dr. Ravi Dahiya disagrees. In fact, it’s the creative challenges of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery that the board-certified doctor loves so much about his job. Inside his practice at Potomac Facial Plastic Surgery, he applies this problem-solving spirit to the task of making clients look years younger, sometimes recommending face-lifts or eyebrow lifts, and sometimes injections of Radiesse or Juvéderm. He also restores youth by removing dead skin cells via microdermabrasion or chemical peels by Glytone. Dr. Dahiya fills bald spots with hair transplants or makes the whole body essentially one giant bald spot with laser hair-removal treatments.
