Dr. Sami M. Bittar is board-certification in reconstructive surgery; that designation, paired with his many other accomplishments, speaks volumes about his surgical skill. However, Dr. Bittar isn't just a stellar surgeon. He's also an empathetic one. Bittar Aesthetic Surgery's Seasons of Life demonstrates the doctor's awareness that aesthetic procedures are intellectual and emotional as well as physical. With that in mind, he's organized his menu of procedures into seasons, with each correlating to a type of patient and their image goals. Spring, for example, features light refinement—laser hair removal and the like. Summer represents a middle ground where beauty shines but wear begins to show; treatments here include body contouring and tucks. Fall represents clients ready for change, and aligns with face lifts and Botox injections that can help reset the clocks and inspire them to thrash through the metaphorical leaf-piles of time, or the real leaf-piles of that nice couple across the street.
Five Things to Know About New Horizons Center for Cosmetic Surgery
To say that Dr. Gregory Turowski has an enviable professional pedigree is a serious undersell; among other accolades, Dr. Turowski boasts advanced degrees from the medical schools of both Harvard and Yale.

Hair transplants aren't just for balding men. In addition to various top-of-the-head hair treatments, New Horizons can also treat patchy beards and eyebrows.
Surgery isn't always needed. Some results can be attained through lasers or noninvasive injections, such as nonsurgical nose jobs that use the filler Radiesse to elevate the bridge or correct minor imperfections.
A board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Omeed Memar specializes in liposuction and fat transfer, holds a clinical assistant professorship at Northwestern University, and serves as the medical director of the Academic Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute. He designs medical devices for fat transfer treatments, and his research has been showcased in leading scientific publications, making him a sought-after expert for speaking engagements and television appearances.
Dr. Memar combines his 12+ years of surgical expertise with an understanding of what it takes for clients to feel comfortable in their skin. A member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, he stays ahead of the latest advancements and can correct aesthetic imbalances ranging from sagging cheeks to acne scars to being a painting by Picasso. Blemishes as varied as spider veins, skin tags, age spots, and birthmarks can be zapped away with a medical-grade laser. Photofacials, peels, and microdermabrasion smooth away dead skin cells, while hair transplants revive depleted manes and resurfacing treatments take years off of hands. Minimal incision face-lifts, tucks, and liposuction, meanwhile, renovate bodies with more permanent solutions. Dr. Memar also specializes in restoring the youthful sparkle to eyes. Drawing on more than 10 years of experience, his eyelid lifts erase the bags and excess skin that drag winks down.
