Helmed by board-certified specialists, Facial Aesthetic Concepts was recently recognized as the Best Place for a Nip and Tuck in the Orange County Register's 2010 Best Of Orange County and enacts glowing dermises with a variety of services. Fit for any skin type, the seasonal signature facial fortifies human fabrics with a blend of deep pore cleansing, steam, exfoliation, and gentle-cycle hydration. Meanwhile, the ultimate one-hour chemical peel exorcises the specters of dead surface cells to help halt acne, rosacea, stage productions of Casper, and sun damage. Safe and effective laser systems penetrate the cheeks in the full-frame photofacial (IPL), which works to stimulate collagen production, mend broken capillaries, and minimize hyperpigmentation.
The experienced cosmetic surgeon behind Advance Laser & Cosmetics, Dr. Tim Roham, personally sees and treats every patient who wanders into the office seeking to enhance their natural beauty. When performing cosmetic surgeries such as tummy tucks and face-lifts, he takes pride in producing the most natural-looking results. He also performs minor tweaking to the physique with sclerotherapy to eradicate unsightly veins and laser treatments to remove unwanted hair, tattoos, or mustaches drawn in invisible ink.
"The philosophy of this practice is to combine excellent patient care with evidence-based medicine," says board-certified plastic surgeon Hisham Seify, MD, FACS. Dr. Seify has conducted extensive clinical investigations in the field of endoscopic plastic surgery. He shares his evidence-based discoveries by contributing chapters to medical textbooks and instructing future generations of cyborg physicians at the UCLA School of Medicine. At Newport Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Seify takes the time to explain the pros and cons of procedures so that patients can make informed decisions concerning their bodies. His services range from face-lifts, tucks, and augmentations to less invasive chemical peels and body contouring.
While patients dream of refined physiques in the waiting room, sunlight pours between gilded curtains. On either side of the window, a flat-screen TV mirrors a painting of Parisian streets rendered in oils and vinegars.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify holds many titles throughout the medical world. He is a fellow to the American College of Surgeons, a diplomate to the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and an assistant clinical professor to the students at UCLA's School of Medicine and the University of California at Irvine's Medical Center. He also travels internationally to perform surgeries and lecture to fellow surgeons. But his primary role is medical director to the staff and patients at Newport Plastic.
There, his expertise in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery extends to everything from breast augmentation to oculoplastic surgery. However, going under the knife is not the only option for patients. Dr. Seify and his team always explain all treatment options to their patients to ensure plastic surgery is right for them. The staff also performs noninvasive med-spa treatments such as microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, and ultherapy, a body-contouring technique that uses ultrasound, such as sound from an ultraloud stereo.
Though cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon Jeffry B. Schafer has been performing surgical procedures since 1978, over the past 15 years his attention has turned to developing and performing the latest noninvasive and laser-based body-contouring techniques. His SomaSculpt office is a Center of Excellence for both Cynosure and Palomar laser systems, and the staff has mentored more than 100 physicians and 20 nurses in laser lipolysis.
Dr. Schafer also created a superficial skin-tightening method, and he was one of the earliest US physicians to use the Body-Jet liposuction system. He even appeared on an episode of The Doctors to demonstrate its transformative effects and see a real, live applause sign in person.
Dr. Ronnie N. Dawood and his staff at Sublime Medical Aesthetics & Dermatology treat patients with the care that comes from believing that "cosmetic surgery is never routine." Though treatments may have been performed hundreds of times, the licensed surgeon and physician takes nothing for granted?making sure to carefully look at each patient's medical history, current health, and reasons for seeking treatment before agreeing to perform procedures. The staffers pride themselves on staying current on the latest, safest practices, which they use to enhance fa?ades through nonsurgical or minor surgical procedures, including laser vein therapy, liposuction, and Botox injections.
