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.
Award-winning physician Harry Schanzer draws from an extensive arsenal of credentials that includes more than 40 years of medical experience, more than 150 published articles, and time spent as the director of Mount Sinai Hospital's Vascular Laboratory in New York. Together with his talented staff, Dr. Schanzer works to quell a wide array of venous diseases, using his vast knowledge to recommend suitable treatment plans. Staffers might suggest high-tech laser ablation treatments for varicose and spider veins or propose sclerotherapy or microphlebectomy, which, like performing an appendectomy on an ant, requires tiny surgical incisions. Each treatment is designed to enhance patients' comfort and confidence, and can thwart more troublesome medical issues from arising in the future.
Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
At Park Avenue Aesthetic Surgery, P.C., the medical know-how of the staff continues to catalyze clients' physical transformations long after procedures are finished. That's because Dr. Douglas Senderoff, Park Avenue's supervising physician, fosters relationships between his staff and patients to ensure visitors thoroughly understand their procedures and to keep the lines of communication open long after they leave the office. Dr. Senderoff treats patients' skincare concerns with an array of professional-strength medi-spa services, from cosmetic injections to laser skin rejuvenation, to ease signs of aging and encourage skin to repair itself and restore its own natural glow. Each procedure begins with a complimentary consultation to give technicians the opportunity to discuss patients' treatment goals, calibrate skin-transforming technology such as multipurpose lasers, and distract Father Time with a flashy display case of diamond-plated scythes.
A New York native, Dr. Luis Cenedese received his M.D. Ph D. from SUNY Downstate Medical Center before his interest in plastic surgery really took off. He shifted his career to both reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery after caring for burn victims and children with congenital defects during his residency at Beth Israel Medical Center. Years later, his private practice thrives, offering more than 10 treatments for women ranging from breast implants and facelifts to nonsurgical fillers; his male-oriented service list includes gynecomastia reduction, blepharoplasty, and rhinoplasty. Clients can maintain their new look by ingesting some of the products that Dr. Cenedese carries. Check the F.A.Q. for more information.
