Drs. Ryan Heffelfinger, Howard Krein, and Edmund Pribitkin share a distinction in their field: each holds the title of fellow from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Together, the distinguished doctors and their team of anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and a medical aesthetician operate Jefferson Facial Plastics on the grounds of Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals. They focus their efforts on plastic and reconstructive surgery for the head, face, and neck, with services ranging from face lifts to hair transplants.
Jefferson Facial Plastics’ therapies also include noninvasive med-spa services such as facials, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. The doctors also perform humanitarian work both locally and abroad, including traveling to Guatemala to repair children's cleft lips.
After graduating from medical school, Dr. David Horvath didn’t want to leave the classroom behind. He decided to continue training in plastic surgery at the IU Medical Center before completing a fellowship with the prestigious Plastic Surgery Associates of Miami, Florida. Finally, he opened his own practice, but still groomed his interest in academia by participating in numerous training programs while teaching other plastic surgeons at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic.
All of this teaching and training has garnered Dr. Horvath a respected reputation as a doctor who treats plastic surgery as both a medical practice and an artistic expression. His diverse array of skills allows him to offer most types of plastic surgery treatments available, all of which are performed in a private facility that's outfitted with the latest in medical technology.
Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Edward Kole calls on his skills and experience as the medical director of Kole Plastic Surgery Center. In a video welcome on the clinic's site, he assures new patients that he'll take time to respond to every question and concern they express. This attention to detail and personal responsiveness carries on in his practice as he personally administers all of the cosmetic fillers and wrinkle-reducing Botox. For added convenience, Kole Plastic Surgery Center offers daytime and evening appointments.
Led by Dr. Harmon C. Stein, the six physicians at Total Eye Care can handle almost any aspect of ocular care, from laser vision correction to eye muscle surgery for adults or children. Dr. Stein alone has performed more than 10,000 refractive procedures in his more than 25-year career and can personally attest to the benefits of LASIK surgery––he's had it himself. Of course, with better vision, patients might begin to notice pesky veins or wrinkles that never bothered them before. Luckily, Total Eye Care can handle those too: the doctors here are well trained in all sorts of cosmetic procedures, from Botox and skin tag removal, to permanent makeup, which can be custom-blended to match the patients hair, skin, or any hat permanently affixed to their head.
