Metropolitan MD's board-certified doctors perform both cosmetic and medical, as well as both surgical and nonsurgical, treatments for the face, body, and skin. Dr. John Rachel is triple-board-certified in otolaryngology, facial plastic surgery, and cosmetic surgery, qualifying him to treat nose and throat ailments as well as beautify bodies and land airplanes in Siberia. Both doctors remain active in the medical community through their publications and membership in medical associations.
The vein vanguards at Midwest Vein Center devote themselves exclusively to the treatment and eradication of spider and varicose veins. After scheduling an appointment, clients will undergo a pretreatment screening to ensure that sclerotherapy is the appropriate plan of anatomical action. Dr. Murray James Propes—a leading phlebologist who recently received the American College of Phlebology scholarship—will conduct the screening.
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 and to open 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 obtaining a perfect score while playing Operation.
Dr. Jon A. Kotis’s career has taken him down the hallways of many hospitals and universities. After graduating from Midwestern University School of Medicine and completing a general surgery residency at St. John’s University Hospital, he became vice president of the medical staff at Lincoln Park Hospital. Since then, Dr. Kotis has loaded walls, mantles, and refrigerators with titles and honors, most notably a board certification from the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery. His work has been recognized in various press outlets, including the television show The Doctors, which featured his pain-relieving knuckle transplant procedure.
Today, Dr. Kotis shares his aesthetic expertise at The Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. He and his staff fine-tune faces with less intensive procedures, such as Botox injections and microdermabrasion, and dramatically transform bodies with procedures including liposuction and rhinoplasty.
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.
