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, augmentation, and reduction procedures that make as few incisions as possible. Additional services include mommy makeovers and post-weight loss procedures.

In addition to his surgical procedures, Dr. Lay restores youthful appearances with Botox injections and hair restoration.
At Premier Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon James Newman, MD, FACS and his fellow board-certified plastic surgeons enhance beauty within their state-of-the-art surgical suite. Dr. Newman completed his residency and a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Stanford University, where he now serves on the clinical faculty. He completed an additional fellowship with an emphasis on laser surgery after recognizing the large role lasers now play in surgical procedures. The renowned surgeon also lectures internationally and has authored more than 30 surgery-related scientific publications and a coloring book.
Dr. Newman and his staff perform a variety of medical procedures, ranging from face-lifts and Vaser ultrasonic liposuction to minimally invasive body-contouring and enhancement techniques. They can also combat signs of aging via nonsurgical means, including dermal fillers that smooth wrinkles and Vaser Shape sessions that, like a rearview mirror in place of a bathroom mirror, make bodies look smaller.
The doctor at i-Lipo Laser San Jose understands that there's no such thing as a weight-loss program that's both lasting and instant. Yet Dr. Phan has come up with something that's close. Using healthy lifestyle transformation buttressed chiropractor Gia-Hung Phan and helps people shed excess pounds and inches in weeks. Prior to the procedure, he screens patients for metabolic imbalances and prescribes dietary recommendations, such as drinking plenty of water, to enhance the effects of the laser treatment. The clinic also houses a workout room where clients accelerate the removal of the fatty acids and glycerol using a vibration machine that aids the lymphatic system regulate and remove the cellular waste from the body during each treatment while carving their abs to resemble their favorite mountain range.
As a partner of ResearchMDs, a family practice and research facility, RMDs Aesthetics & Med Spa adds a clinical component to relaxing spa services.

A licensed massage therapist addresses stress and soreness with seven different modalities, including neuromuscular-therapy sessions focused on releasing nerve pressure at trigger points.

By keeping his patients informed and empowered, Dr. Norris has gained a loyal following of repeat customers who trust him with their every unwanted wrinkle, bulge, or third ear.
