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.
When he's not writing articles in celebrated medical journals, appearing on radio and television, or delivering lectures across the globe, Dr. Ayman El-Attar treats faces and bodies with his natural-looking cosmetic surgeries. At Derma Laser Centers, which he founded in 2002, Dr. El-Attar performs numerous nonsurgical procedures that rid skin of acne, remove tattoos, and eliminate unwanted hair and veins. Alternatively, his surgical procedures transplant hair, transfer fat to different body regions, and reduce breasts without scarring.
In addition to cosmetic surgeries, Derma Laser Centers' personnel pamper guests with facials that incorporate elements such as an antioxidant vitamin C firming mask, which exfoliates skin more effectively than daily orange-juice baths. He also smoothes skin with microdermabrasion and reinvigorates clients with body treatments that include lavender and an antioxidant grape-seed scrub.
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.
