Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dimitry Likterev, the staff at Absolute Health Clinic harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. Low-light lasers break down adipose tissue, releasing disintegrated lipids into the body where they can then be absorbed by the lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade. Dr. T., who has dubbed himself "Lipodoc" and is backed up by Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute's team, specializes in all manner of fat removal and relocation, both by traditional means and with modern laser technology. He also wipes out wrinkles, veins, unwanted hair, and passé tattoos, and he is able to bring his treatments to many, since he speaks five languages, including Armenian, Arabic, and pigeon.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael J. Duffy—who received his plastics and reconstructive training at the Mayo Clinic—and his experienced team revitalize guests with surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic services at the Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery Center. Dr. Duffy draws from his 20 years of experience to perform reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries such as face-lifts, liposuction, and breast augmentation. He also noninvasively beautifies faces by topping them with chemical peels, injecting them with Botox, and glazing them with a fresh coat of paint.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Peter Johnson has a work ethic that not only drove him to earn highest honors from the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honors Society at Northwestern University Medical School, but also to become a clinical assistant professor at the University of Chicago before opening his Center for Aesthetic Surgery. When he's not performing face-lifts, nasal shaping, liposuction, or breast enhancements, Dr. Johnson is answering questions about cosmetic surgery and doling out advice on RealSelf's online doctor-patient forum or in smoke signals above the office.
Captained by double-board-certified Dr. Robert Kagan, the crew of contourers at Anew Allure specializes in a suite of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Natural fillers and water-assisted lipo number among their treatment options, and all patients receive a complimentary consultation to determine the best strategy for getting in shape before inner-tube season.
Dr. Robert S. Kagan has been enhancing figures and rejuvenating faces for more than two decades. Board certified in general and plastic surgery, Dr. Kagan's work has led to numerous reconstructive and cosmetic successes for his patients, and he works to further bolster his skills by continuing his education and regularly attending conferences nationwide. He shares this expertise at his practice, where he performs a variety of services, including many types of cosmetic surgeries, breast reconstruction, skin-cancer reconstruction, and facial and body contouring to boost clients' confidence.
