Most cosmetic surgeons know a lot about the face. But as a dentist and plastic surgeon, Dr. Alex Rabinovich knows how the mouth plays a big role in determining ideal facial aesthetics. Rather than only focusing on lifting the skin, reshaping the nose, or combining two eyes into one, Dr. Rabinovich considers the role teeth and jaws play in the overall harmony of the face. No matter what facial-sculpting procedure he performs, Dr. Rabinovich mostly uses local anesthesia or twilight anesthesia to help prevent complications.
Before any treatment, patients can take advantage of thorough consultations at the homey treatment center with brick walls, hardwood floors, and a large flat-panel television. Dr. Rabinovich occasionally leaves the comfort of these confines to participate in medical missions abroad that provide children in need with free reconstructive surgery.
Dr. Jeffrey DeWeese wanted to be a physician when he was just 12 years old, but it wasn't until an emergency-room rotation that he decided to be a plastic surgeon. After watching a colleague reconstruct a young girl's injured face, Dr. DeWeese resolved to dedicate himself to a specialty that combines artistic vision with technical proficiency to improve patients? quality of life. Now with board certification and more than 17 years of surgical experience, he still relies on this combination of skills, spending ample time with patients beforehand and working with them to select an appropriate treatment regimen.
Surgical procedures comprise a healthy portion of the center's services, but the staff also bolsters confidence, tones and shapes silhouettes, and counteracts aging with less invasive alternatives. Custom facial treatments, for instance, incorporate everything from anti-inflammatory enzymes that conceal signs of acne to soothing masks that leave skin as hydrated as a sponge in a bucket of Gatorade. Microdermabrasion sessions and dermal fillers improve skin tone, whereas a therapeutic massage combines Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and reflexology techniques to address individual aches.

At Laurel Heights Plastic Surgery, staff members help to curate youthful-looking skin under the guidance of licensed physician Dr. Lynn Chung, who boasts an advanced training fellowship in aesthetic plastic surgery from the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. During the 10-minute Botox or Xeomin treatment, Dr. Chung injects facial muscles with 20 units of either solution, aiding in ironing out wrinkles by triggering nerve impulses and trimming the overgrown talons of crow's-feet. Results will surface in the subsequent days and weeks and can last up to four months, on average. Patients should dash into the waiting room 15 minutes early to shout answers at a questionnaire's inquiries about previous health history, cosmetic interests, and medication allergies.
