Drs. Ryan Heffelfinger, Howard Krein, and Edmund Pribitkin share a distinction in their field: each holds the title of fellow from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Together, the distinguished doctors and their team of anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and a medical aesthetician operate Jefferson Facial Plastics on the grounds of Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals. They focus their efforts on plastic and reconstructive surgery for the head, face, and neck, with services ranging from face lifts to hair transplants.
Jefferson Facial Plastics’ therapies also include noninvasive med-spa services such as facials, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. The doctors also perform humanitarian work both locally and abroad, including traveling to Guatemala to repair children's cleft lips.
With his long list of degrees, certifications, and hospital affiliations, Dr. Mark P. Solomon—who has been featured as an expert source in such publications as the Philadelphia Inquirer—sets any client who may be intimidated by cosmetic surgery at ease. Dr. Solomon harnesses his two decades of expertise to enhance appearances with a wide range of procedures, including liposuction, face lifts, and Botox. He also oversees a staff of medical aestheticians who perform noninvasive treatments, such as chemical peels and laser hair removal, which blasts unwanted hair with laser-tag guns.
The certified physicians of Philly Lipo Laser target fat cells with the FDA-approved Lapex 2000 BCS, whose noninvasive laser technology gradually trims away unwanted inches. Immediately after treatments, they can provide a 10-minute vibration-platform session to burn the same amount of calories as 30 minutes of exercise or two hours spent chewing gum vigorously. To complement treatments, doctors can also create a three-week exercise and nutrition program for patients to follow.
Along with Philly Lipo Laser's body contouring, its strategic partner, Morgan Chiropractic Center, administers physical adjustments and treats back injuries with a combination of medical expertise and holistic procedures.
After graduating from medical school, Dr. David Horvath didn’t want to leave the classroom behind. He decided to continue training in plastic surgery at the IU Medical Center before completing a fellowship with the prestigious Plastic Surgery Associates of Miami, Florida. Finally, he opened his own practice, but still groomed his interest in academia by participating in numerous training programs while teaching other plastic surgeons at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic.
All of this teaching and training has garnered Dr. Horvath a respected reputation as a doctor who treats plastic surgery as both a medical practice and an artistic expression. His diverse array of skills allows him to offer most types of plastic surgery treatments available, all of which are performed in a private facility that's outfitted with the latest in medical technology.
Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Edward Kole calls on his skills and experience as the medical director of Kole Plastic Surgery Center. In a video welcome on the clinic's site, he assures new patients that he'll take time to respond to every question and concern they express. This attention to detail and personal responsiveness carries on in his practice as he personally administers all of the cosmetic fillers and wrinkle-reducing Botox. For added convenience, Kole Plastic Surgery Center offers daytime and evening appointments.
