As a published author and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Barry Cohen spreads aesthetic knowledge and prowess among patients at his state-of-the-art offices. Dr. Cohen and his staff aim to treat each client like family during surgical and nonsurgical treatments, all of which include complimentary consultations. These sessions may also make use of the office's preoperative computer imaging—software designed to show patients what can and cannot be achieved with surgery or masking tape. The office's adjoining med spa provides a tranquil retreat for rejuvenating waning complexions with dermal fillers, chemical peels, and laser treatments. Additionally, Dr. Cohen's personal line of skincare products and tips from his personally penned books help maintain newly spruced mugs.
PartnerMD serves a limited number of patients to ensure individualized attention and thorough, preventative service and care. The Jump Start weight-loss program reroutes rambling fitness trajectories with three one-hour sessions. Sessions begin after a consultation with a weight-loss specialist to explain why extra pounds hitchhike on the body instead of using public transportation. To complete a personal fitness outline, the MetaCheck measures exhaled air to calculate how much oxygen the body is consuming and to determine an exact amount of calories burned. The weight-loss specialist doles out advice on diet and exercise based on the patient's complete fitness landscape, paying attention to individual hills, valleys, and melting clocks. Patients skip along the polished, professionally laid road toward fitness with two follow-up sessions to monitor progress and provide healthy encouragement.
The medical personnel at Virginia Surgical Center aim to help reverse the effects of genetic hair loss for both men and women. The clinic, which has been open since 1994, specializes in restoring hair growth through follicular-unit transplantation. This four- to seven-hour process requires that entire follicles be removed from a donor area such as the scalp or a devoted chia pet, microscopically prepared, and then carefully grafted onto thinning or balding areas. Technicians are specially trained to create a natural-looking hairline by locking each follicle into the proper angle and direction. In addition to hair transplants, the clinic offers low-level-laser hair therapy, which uses 160 diode low-level lasers to boost cellular growth and repair functions, helping maintain natural hair and stimulate the growth of new strands.
"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 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.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Richard P. Giannotto—a Georgetown University School of Medicine graduate—has employed the latest in hair and skincare technology to keep men aging gracefully. To help thicken manes affected by hair loss, Dr. Giannotto performs a thorough evaluation to determine his client's needs before crafting a custom treatment plan from a slate of innovative regimens. Low-level lasers take a noninvasive approach to staving off future thinning by stimulating follicles at the root. For extensive hair loss, more intense methods such as follicular unit extraction surgically extract one strand at a time from the scalp’s lusher patches and place them in areas that need more growth, much like Robin Hood’s approach to gardening.
Meanwhile, skincare and preventative aging treatments keep the rest of men’s features fresh. Fine lines and drooping skin benefit from liquid face-lifts, which rely on dermal injections to plump and smooth visage tissues, and microdermabrasion and chemical peels call on DermaMed and Obagi skincare products to refine the entire complexion. The clinic's holistic Quality of Life Medical Program also helps clients ward off signs of age through hormone therapy, proper nutrition, stress management, and turning clients’ baseball caps backwards.
Licensed physician Dr. Doreen Moreira works in tandem with primary-care practitioners to customize wellness plans for individual health needs. Dr. Doreen doles out advice on how to boost constitutions by crafting a personalized diet, losing weight, or finding exercises that build muscle instead of vestigial sand castles. The doctor's sage recommendations can craft arsenals of targeted vitamin supplements or educate clients on how to live an eco-friendly lifestyle with minimized exposure to environmental toxins. Patients of Dr. Doreen include individuals seeking greater holistic health, therapy to complement existing chronic-illness treatments, or final-exam help after skipping too many phys-ed classes.
