Certified ophthalmologist Dr. Anouche M. Roberts of Liquid Facelift Centers combines surgical expertise with a passion for aesthetic medicine. Her expert knowledge of the face aids her as she wards off signs of aging with liquid facelifts and laser treatments. A restrained aesthetic style, attention to detail, and knack for all things artistic round out Dr. Roberts’ qualifications and explain her affinity for cross-stitching all of her patients’ post-op prescriptions rather than writing them. Having performed more than 5,000 injectable procedures using the micro-cannula injection technique, Dr. Roberts has mastered performing pain-free, precise injections with little to no bruising.
Dr. Anoush R. Sarraf and the staff at Aphrodite Advanced Esthetic & Skin Care resurface and reshape the body using laser technology. With the many settings of the Candela GentleMax workstation, they tackle cosmetic complaints such as spider veins, hyperpigmentation, and unwanted body hair.

Dr. Pat Palumbo marries an artistic eye with advanced aesthetic technology to lead BodySculpture's board-certified staff in restoring patients to natural looking, more youthful versions of their former selves with customized, minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Clients pad along hardwood floors through the newly renovated haven, passing plush furnishings and contemporary décor on their way to comfortable private treatment rooms. Each patient receives a complimentary consultation, where the doctors listen to medical history and aesthetic concerns before clearly and concisely providing all information concerning possible treatment options and the scientific history of lasers. Laser treatments can be customized to each client's individual skin type and are preformed with advanced technology such as the Cynosure 9300 Alexandrite Laser or the Cynosure Acclaim Yag Laser. Visitors can opt for facial treatments with non-invasive medspa treatments, including dermal fillers and professional-strength chemical peels, or achieve more dramatic results with skillfully executed advanced procedures, such as liposuction, laser hair removal, or aesthetician services.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jamal Yousefi's attention to aesthetic detail telegraphs his belief that plastic surgery is an art.

The doctor even enjoys using his free time to hone his artistic skills by drawing, sculpting with clay, and removing the appendices of statues.
