It seems Dr. Shahin Fazilat has had a hard time scratching his itch for education. The board-certified plastic surgeon first bolstered his medical degree from Howard University School of Medicine by completing general surgery training at The Washington Hospital Center. Then came his fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, followed by a yearlong cosmetic surgery apprenticeship, and finally another fellowship in hand and microsurgery at Stanford University. All this schooling and training serves him well at his practice, where he performs all of the surgical and nonsurgical procedures himself instead of entrusting them to a guy in a New Jersey Devils jersey who insists he can totally do surgery. To list a few of his duties, he doles out Botox injections and Vi Peel chemical peels, conducts liposuction treatments, and performs breast lift, augmentation, and reduction procedures that make as few incisions as possible. Additional services include mommy makeovers and post-weight loss procedures.
Lavoro Laser Silicon Valley’s doctors of chiropractic—Michael Ruscio, Jordan Giang, and Justin Marchegiani—all specialize in functional medicine, which means they analyze the fundamental cause of health problems. The most common problems they see are high cholesterol and blood sugar, depression, and weight gain, which they link to slow metabolism. Their solution is i-Lipo, a noninvasive lipolysis treatment that was featured on The Doctors. They use this machine, which has four laser pads that wrap around body parts, to surround fat cells and cellulite with low-level laser beams. This cocoon of energy helps the body spur the release of stored chocolate bunnies in the adipose cells. They augment the slimming results by encouraging their clients to engage in healthy eating and exercise.
