Dr. Dean Kane's pursuit of beauty has led him across the country and beyond. His specialized training in plastic surgery and medicine began at the University of Puerto Rico, then continued with residencies at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore and the University of Florida. Today, Dr. Kane shares his knowledge of plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques with up-and-coming doctors as a clinical professor at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and beautifies patients at his plastic-surgery practice.
From the moment clients enter the couch- and art-adorned waiting room to the time they grapple through the skylight, the attentive staff cater to them with personal attention. Before treatment⎯such as tummy tucks, liposuction, and Botox injections⎯clients consult with Dr. and Lauri Kane to ask questions about procedures as well as outline their beauty goals. Post-procedure, the clinical or operating-room nurse oversees patients through the entire recovery process.
There?s something about Dr. Angel Purdy that inspires confidence in her clients. Perhaps it?s the fact that she?s a native of Baltimore, but it more likely has to do with the professional Obagi, Arbonne, and Kinerase products she uses to treat skin during her chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. Dr. Purdy also wants her clients to have confidence in themselves, so she helps them feel comfortable in their own skin with laser hair-removal treatments and injectables that smooth away wrinkles. She also performs cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to reduce the appearance of scars, tighten and lift skin, and remove phantom tails that make it painful to sit down.
Dr. Faith Esterson is joined in her practice by a talented physician's assistant, a licensed aesthetician, and a pair of medical assistants. This crew tends to a wide range of medical and cosmetic skin concerns, from acne and eczema to wrinkles and sun damage. Skin Medica and Obagi peels offer respite from many of these issues, while more intensive laser treatments and beauty injections provide more dramatic results.
Skilled staff at Facial Plastic Surgicenter gives the boot to spindly spider veins with noninvasive laser treatments. During each 30-minute session, a licensed technician uses a Cutera CoolGlide laser to deliver pulses of light energy into extraneous vessels on the thighs and techno dance parties on the kneecaps. As the vessels collapse, blood flow redirects to veins deeper below the skin, and garish marks begin to fade. Throughout treatment, a special copper cooling system works to soothe the light stinging sensation that may be caused by heat from the laser or incisive trash talk from veins.
Dr. Steven J. Rottman's extensive training and caring bedside manner have earned him high praise from his patients. Multiple awards for his skill and attentiveness dot his trophy shelf, including a Compassionate Doctor Recognition in 2011 and a 2012 Patients' Choice Award from PatientsChoice.org.
The good doctor's passion for research allows him to offer the latest techniques as well as conventional cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for the face and body, including breast augmentations and lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction. Dr. Rottman completed a prestigious fellowship at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC, where he studied breast surgery with internationally renowned industry leaders. Today, he and his staff also buff complexions with facials, chemical peels, and liquid face-lifts.
The team at Zibazz Hair Studio & Spa uses their skills in styling and skincare to make each client's natural beauty shine. Haircuts begin with a consultation to determine the cut that will best showcase features and finish with a blow-dry and style. Facials purge dirt, oil, and birthday cake frosting from pores and waxing treatments whisk unwanted hair away. The board-certified plastic surgeon on staff is available for skin analysis appointments and qualified to administer beauty injections, while the team's massage therapists perform bodywork treatments that relax muscles and minds.
