It's not only his patients who have praise to sing for Dr. Matthew Schulman. The board-certified plastic surgeon is also a trailblazer, constantly researching new ways to refine his techniques and modernize existing procedures within the medical community. With publications in several peer-reviewed medical journals, he also presents his research at national conferences and serves as an assistant professor of plastic surgery at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine—his alma mater. But it's his patients who benefit the most from his extensive experience.
He and his team regularly perform more than 500 surgical procedures a year, focusing on the health, wellbeing, and cosmetic goals of each patient. But their treatments extend far beyond surgery, too. Working alongside the doctor, a licensed medical aesthetician offers advanced spa treatments like diamond-tipped microdermabrasion to smooth away uneven skin texture or fine lines.

Dr. Michelle Copeland, a Harvard-schooled plastic surgeon, brings more than 20 years of surgical experience to her Manhattan practice and a passion for healthy complexions to her self-titled skincare line. In her office located across the street from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Dr. Copeland nips, tucks, and augments, and also zaps wrinkles, fat, veins, and body hair with noninvasive laser treatments. Dermal fillers plump and firm laugh crevasses and frown valleys, as microdermabrasion and therapeutic facials leave skin as youthful and glowing as a baby lightning bug.
Dr. Copeland originally developed her namesake skincare line to treat her patients’ need, but with such successful results, she now peddles her healing serums and salves to the public. From mild, nonfoaming cleansers to exfoliating alpha-hydroxyl creams, these regimens help fight the signs of aging and quench thirsty pores. An August 2011 Lucky magazine giveaway featured 1-ounce pots of Emerge facelift cream, each round jar chock-full of lavender aroma, antioxidant compounds, and collagen-boosting elves.
The Titles certainly earned their titles. Dr. Stacy F. Title trained at Chicago Medical School before procuring a board certification in internal medicine at Northwestern more than 15 years ago, and Dr. Craig I. Title, a board-certified surgeon, earned his scalpel at Boston University School of Medicine, then picked up a fellowship certification at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital. Together the two bring a wealth of knowledge to Health & Beauty New York City, where the primary goal is preserving youth. Both cosmetic physicians reach for syringes of Botox and Juvéderm to temporarily erase wrinkles from the face, including "bunny lines" between the brows and crow's-feet near the eye the crow liked to perch on. The doctors also clear complexions using chemical peels and microdermabrasion, which together stimulate collagen production and even out skin tone.
Dr. Tal Dagan is a board-certified ENT and cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon for the nose, face, eyes, head, and neck. His talents extend into less invasive procedures as well, many of which help patients deter the signs of aging with non-surgical chemical peels, cosmetic injections, liposculpting, and a stitch-less facelift procedure performed in-office under local anesthesia in about an hour. When it comes to his ear, nose, and throat work, Dagan MD NYC also treats a wide variety of ailments, such as vertigo, sinus allergies, and voice and swallowing disorders. Not all of his patients come to him in discomfort, though. His practice can also create molded earplugs for swimmers as well as custom-fit earphones and the latest in-ear monitors for musicians and audiophiles.
Beauty is serious business at Allure Plastic Surgery Center, and the company's four plastic surgeons have been trained accordingly. Dr. Elliot Heller co-founded the American Academy of Aesthetic and Restorative Surgery, and his colleagues boast board certifications and advanced training in specialties such as reconstructive surgery, microsurgery, and nonsurgical body-contouring alternatives. These physicians focus on keeping their visitors comfortable as they usher them through the surgical suite or into the office for outpatient procedures such as injecting Botox, exfoliating with microdermabrasion, performing laser hair-removal, or simply supplying ultra-flattering mirrors.
It might be impossible to go back in time, but that hasn’t stopped the specialists at Esthelis Clinic from trying. At this 10,000 square-foot facility, they administer surgical and noninvasive procedures that help guests leave looking younger than when they entered. Mesotherapy, for instance, works to firm skin with microinjections of vitamins and minerals, while clients’ own platelet-rich plasma might be used to restore the youthful glow of a firefly at prom. In addition to age-defying services, the beauty hotspot also helps visitors stay in shape by offering access to a gym and two full-sized indoor swimming pools.
