The walls of Dr. Raja K. Srour's office are peppered with his own paintings. He finds that his artistic skills travel easily between the canvas and the human body: both depend on his keen eye, dexterous digits, and "intense desire for harmony and perfection." Dr. Srour's treatments all aim for a look that is true to the patient's own personality and ethnic background, creating harmony with their natural features and favorite ascots. Throughout the three decades he's spent performing cosmetic surgeries on Beverly Hills' faces and bodies, Dr. Srour's work has also landed in front of the lenses of Extra and Fox 11.
Helmed by Dr. David Rahimi, a cosmetic surgeon and board-certified dermatologist, Forever Young focuses on maintaining beauty with minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Dr. Rahimi draws on experience with various skin types while smoothing out wrinkles around the eyes and brow with Botox or eyelid surgery. Tulip mini lifts dramatically reduce the downtime of standard face-lifts while maintaining a natural look, and surface-level chemical peels and microdermabrasion whisk away fine lines, discoloration, and political signs left on the face by mayoral candidates. In whole-body treatments, Forever Young eliminates unsightly veins with spider-vein therapy and trims away stubborn flab with lipolysis.

It’s a family affair at Contoured Images Plastic Surgery, where Dr. Debra Stafford and her sister Dr. Vivi Stafford beautify clients with advanced cosmetic treatments. Before beginning any service, the doctors spend ample time listening to each patient’s aesthetic goals and concerns and explaining medical jargon. The sisters are especially empathetic when it comes to helping women overcome their self-consciousness, though the services they perform—tummy tucks and brow lifts, Botox injections, and chemical peels—are like the first name Dangerbreath: they work well for both women and men.
Dr. David Mashhadian received his training in general and maxillofacial surgery at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in his home state of New York.

When not enhancing features in Beverly Hills, Dr. Mashhadian has been known to volunteer his time and surgical talents with the Thousand Smiles Foundation in Mexico, an organization that provides treatment to those with upper jaw and facial deformities.
After graduating from Cornell University, Dr. Brian Evans established a practice in California in the hopes of evolving cosmetic surgery results from the "operated" look of the past to more dramatic yet natural transformations.

He and his team can beautify clients with nonsurgical procedures such as laser hair removal and laser skin rejuvenation, and they also treat patients with dermatological ailments such as acne, abnormal pigmentation, or having the same fingerprints as Al Capone.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael K. Obeng helps patients at MiKO Plastic Surgery turn back the clock on the aging process.

He also continues his good works in the United States, providing information about post-reconstructive treatments to breast-cancer survivors.
