Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels. Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such non-invasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
Under the guidance of Dr. Mark Schwartz, board-certified cosmetic surgeon and member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, North Shore Medical Spa performs body-contouring treatments, skincare services, and age-fighting injections, using its Visia skin analysis to identify client?s underlying problems. Once the aestheticians complete the skincare analysis and plan a home skincare regimen, they get to work, rejuvenating clients? appearances with facials, chemical peels, and fractional skin resurfacing.
Tending to beauty and beauty beholders since 1981, Dr. Stewart Levine practices oculoplastic surgery and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. After the patient chooses two of the three eligible areas—between the eyebrows (glabella), forehead, and crow's-feet—a short series of injections expels creases in a fashion similar to ironing a dog-eared paperback. Many patients experience only mild discomfort and no downtime, returning directly to work or home despite the throngs of smitten face touchers. Results garnered by the procedure can last up to six months.
Dr. Gary B Feldman corrects an array of podiatry ailments with everything from custom orthotics and shoe inserts to hypnosis for pain management. He obliterates foot fungus with the FDA-approved PinPointe FootLaser system and eradicates painful and bothersome bunions, hammertoes, corns, and calluses. Although he has two offices—one in Flushing and another in Valley Stream—the doctor also makes house calls for particularly serious problems, such as that time you got your foot stuck in the cookie jar.
