Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Luis A. Zapiach reconstructs bodily fixer-uppers with a combination of surgical procedures and minimally invasive med-spa treatments. Invite fine lines and wrinkles to their own vanishing act courtesy of Dysport, a prescription injection that temporarily removes creases and furrows from the facial area. Following the 15-minute procedure, skin looks smoother and more youthful, leaving ample space for kisses to land and panther tattoos to prowl. Similar to Botox, Dysport’s FDA–approved solution prevents facial muscles from contracting near targeted areas such as furrows between the eyebrows. Patients typically require little to no downtime, though some may experience some redness or swelling. Like summer-camp romances, results from treatment generally last up to three to four months.
A board-certified plastic surgeon, fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and 2008 president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. D’Amico has bolstered the self-confidence of his patients for a span of more than 20 years. CoolSculpting treatments employ a pain-free, nonsurgical alternative to eradicating extra pounds that trespass on waistline and belly territories. Ideal candidates possess small amounts of body fat and maintain healthy lifestyles of regular calisthenics and stolen-gym-towel collections; these select individuals can seek to reduce love-handle presence from 22% to 25%. CoolSculpting terminates corpulent corpuscles with a selective cooling device, allowing the body to purge chilled fat cells through natural execratory functions. Like swimming in tubs of gelatin, this painless procedure requires no anesthesia, and clients may return to daily life after the one-hour process concludes.
Dr. Jeffrey A. Rapaport, founder and medical director of Cosmetic Skin and Surgery Center, has been practicing dermatology for more than 30 years. In those three decades, his work and achievements in the field have earned him a spot on U.S. News & World Report's list of Top Doctors. He has patented three skincare products, become a training physician for many injectable beauty solutions, and written articles for a number of beauty publications. His passion for skin aesthetics has also drawn him to master the most cutting-edge laser treatments, addressing imperfections such as wrinkles, unwanted tattoos, and cellulite.
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.
At Park Avenue Aesthetic Surgery, P.C., the medical know-how of the staff continues to catalyze clients' physical transformations long after procedures are finished. That's because Dr. Douglas Senderoff, Park Avenue's supervising physician, fosters relationships between his staff and patients to ensure visitors thoroughly understand their procedures and to keep the lines of communication open long after they leave the office. Dr. Senderoff treats patients' skincare concerns with an array of professional-strength medi-spa services, from cosmetic injections to laser skin rejuvenation, to ease signs of aging and encourage skin to repair itself and restore its own natural glow. Each procedure begins with a complimentary consultation to give technicians the opportunity to discuss patients' treatment goals, calibrate skin-transforming technology such as multipurpose lasers, and distract Father Time with a flashy display case of diamond-plated scythes.
