Under the guidance of certified physician assistant Jessica Plotnick PA-C, MMSc, and board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Elizabeth Almeyda, M.D. and Dr. Scott Zevon, M.D., the staff at Central Park Plastic Surgery harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology that's designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires no downtime.
The doctors at Nu/Hart Medical have performed more than 30,000 total hair-restoration procedures, transplanting men's and women's thinning heads of hair with locks that defy the fate written by genetics or clairvoyant court reporters. For those not ready or medically suited for transplants, the doctors also perform noninvasive laser therapies that encourage hair regrowth, and prescribe medications that slow hair loss.
Dr. Victoria Karlinsky looks for ways to restore patients' self-confidence through cosmetic surgery. After training alongside expert bariatric surgeons, Dr. Karlinsky learned the art of weight-loss surgeries and lifts. Dr. Karlinsky's attention to detail extends to her face-lift, eyelid, ear, and lip surgeries, and also accounts for her winning streak in pickup games of Simon Says. Each procedure takes place after patients explain their beauty goals in a one-on-one consultation and Dr. Karlinsky maps out a viable route to achieve them. Dr. Karlinsky brandishes board certifications in both general and cosmetic surgery and can communicate to clients in English, Russian, or scalpel charades.
As a medical doctor and integrative medicine practitioner who specializes in treating pain, Dr. Kulik understands the need for treatments that work and work fast. It's with this idea in mind that the doctor has outfitted each of his three New York-based clinics with advanced beauty and health equipment.
Computer diagnostics and pain management programs help Dr. Kulik locate and treat the root of health problems, which can range from arthritis and fibromyalgia to joints that creak every time you try to tiptoe past your parents' bedroom. Dr. Kulik and his team also stave off signs of aging with both simple aesthetic treatments such as Botox injections as well as more involved services. These latter include infusing oxygen into the epidermis via a gentle-pressure machine and performing Ultherapy, which uses painless ultrasound technology to lift aging skin, a procedure highlighted by Barbara Walters on "20/20".
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.
A panoply of medical practices converge at Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, where husband-and-wife team Dr. Elie Levine and Dr. Jody Levine practice an impressive repertoire of aesthetic procedures. Non-invasive, medical-grade chemical peels and laser therapies seemingly wipe away signs of aging, and more involved treatments can re-sculpt silhouettes with surgical facelifts, injectable fillers, and ear reshaping. Since Dr. Jody is a board-certified dermatologist and a pediatrician, she can also treat kids who suffer from eczema, vascular birthmarks, and crow's feet.
