It seems Dr. Shahin Fazilat has had a hard time scratching his itch for education. The board-certified plastic surgeon first bolstered his medical degree from Howard University School of Medicine by completing general surgery training at The Washington Hospital Center. Then came his fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, followed by a yearlong cosmetic surgery apprenticeship, and finally another fellowship in hand and microsurgery at Stanford University. All this schooling and training serves him well at his practice, where he performs all of the surgical and nonsurgical procedures himself instead of entrusting them to a guy in a New Jersey Devils jersey who insists he can totally do surgery. To list a few of his duties, he doles out Botox injections and Vi Peel chemical peels, conducts liposuction treatments, and performs breast lift and reduction procedures that make as few incisions as possible.
Dr. Jay Bansal has performed more than 20,000 successful LASIK procedures since his 1994 certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology. Dr. Bansal, a physician trainer for IntraLase technology and the medical director of LaserVue Eye Center, performs every single LASIK procedure at three of the center’s four locations: San Francisco, Mountain View, and Walnut Creek. He specializes in a blade-free process using iLASIK wavefront technology, which relies on advanced lasers and enhanced optical imagery to improve a patient’s chances of achieving 20/20 or better vision while decreasing their chances of experiencing nighttime blurriness. In addition to LASIK, LaserVue’s American Board of Ophthalmology-certified eye surgeons and ophthalmic technicians offer several types of cataract surgery, as well as treatments for other ocular conditions such as dry eye or glaucoma.
The physician-supervised subscription weight-loss plans offered at GreenLite Medicine are designed to help clients shed excess pounds and embrace a healthier lifestyle.

Plans may include diagnostic lab work, vitamin injections, and FDA-approved appetite suppressants, if needed.
From Cornell and Stanford University to fellowships in Glasgow, Scotland and Miami, Florida, Dr. Joshua Korman has charted the globe on his path to becoming a certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon. Now armed with more than 20 years of experience, the doctor serves as an adjunct clinical associate professor at Stanford and puts his wisdom into practice at Korman Plastic Surgery.
The welcoming office boasts a lengthy list of cosmetic procedures, from rhinoplasty and liposuction to med-spa treatments involving dermal fillers and laser therapies. Each treatment is tailored to fit the aesthetic needs of both men and women with gender-specific techniques. Complimentary consultations are also available for those wishing to receive Dr. Korman’s advice on how to correct aesthetic issues or remove cartoon anvils from feet.
Dr. Korman also focuses his energy on educating breast-cancer patients on their options for breast reconstruction as well as helping former gang members erase tattoos through Clean Slate, a program he founded as an effort to give back to his community.
Lavoro Laser’s doctors of chiropractic—Dr. Michael Ruscio, Dr. Jordan Giang, and Dr. Justin Marchegiani—and the staff go beyond simply administering med-spa treatments, dispensing technologically enhanced services designed to help clients obtain their ideal physique. Office technicians use specialized i-Lipo systems equipped with focused lasers that, like their sci-fi counterparts, cause fat to vanish with a beam of light, and keep parasitic aliens from taking root in one's body. Medical-staff members meet with each patient to screen for metabolic imbalances that may hinder treatment progress before technicians saturate bodily areas to help reduce cellulite visibility. To ensure clients can maintain their results, they meet with knowledgeable associates for dietary consultations to discuss nutritional advice and practice sample exercise programs.
