When doctors told Brian Chang that he would never fully recover from the injuries he obtained in a car accident, he was undeterred. Instead of accepting the news, he traveled to Asia, where he sought treatment in the form of acupuncture and herbal medicine. After several months of therapy, he began to regain function and even found relief from several of his more incapacitating symptoms. His recovery inspired him to become Dr. Brian Chang, an acupuncturist and practitioner of Classical Chinese Medicine.
In his practice, Dr. Chang uses a holistic approach that addresses the underlying causes behind clients' symptoms, restoring a sense of balance to the body's natural energies (or chi). During acupuncture sessions, he accomplishes this by inserting hair-thin needles into key spots along the body, removing any blockages that interfere with the flow of these energies and helping alleviate everything from musculoskeletal pain to emotional stress from not knowing what it's like to be a pin cushion. While acupuncture is his core service, Dr. Chang offers treatments such as essential-oil therapy, cupping, and moxibustion as well.
Named one of America's Top Surgeons in 2009 by the Consumers' Research Council of America, Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj draws upon nearly 20 years of experience as he helps clients attain their desired appearance. Dr. Slupchynskyj, director and founder of The Aesthetic Institute of New York & New Jersey, is an innovator in his field, developing procedures such a one- to two-hour mini face-lift that results in minimal scarring and recovery time for patients. Double board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as otolaryngology, head and neck surgery, he?s also a familiar face to the media, bringing his expertise to publications including Vogue, New York magazine, and Woman?s World.
The Aesthetic Institute?s two locations, on Manhattan?s Upper East Side and in Chatham, provide a private, comfortable environment as clients receive high-quality care. Services range from Botox injections and rhinoplasty to reconstructive surgery, accommodating those seeking enhancements both large and small.
SKINNEY MedSpa founders Adriana and Marisa Martino?who just happen to be identical twin sisters?have been interested in medical aesthetics since they pursued their certification. They immediately set out working under doctors in various med spas, gaining expertise in everything from laser treatments to cellulite reduction. They used their extensive knowledge to open SKINNEY Medspa, where they lead a team of medical aestheticians who use lasers for hair removal, resurfacing facials, and stretch mark reduction. Boasting a wealth of positive press, they also perform treatments such as microdermabrasion and photo facials, and thanks to their on-staff physician, Dr. Halland Chen, plasma facials that can encourage cell rejuvenation through applications of the client's own treated plasma or pulverized TV screens.
Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels. Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such non-invasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
