In a cozy, brown-shuttered house that you might mistake for someone's home, Dr. Alfred Sofer is changing people's lives with cutting-edge medical technology. Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield's impressive facilities include an imaging room, where Dr. Sofer reveals sun damage and other conditions with the Visia complexion-analysis device. Dr. Sofer also uses the Vectra imaging system—which he discussed on WTNH 8's Connecticut Style program—to simulate the outcome of surgery or the addition of a second head in a realistic, three-dimensional model. He employs the advanced visualization tool to prepare patients for cosmetic and restorative procedures, which he performs either in the center's procedure room or within an accredited surgery center or hospital setting. If you walk up the office's charming, white-and-hardwood staircase to the second floor, you'll find members of Dr. Sofer's medical staff enhancing faces with nonsurgical skincare and laser treatments, including laser hair removal, photofacials, and dermal fillers.
With double board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, Dr. Sofer has experience in the most delicate procedures. His training includes a microvascular and hand-surgery fellowship at the Christine M. Kleinert Institute, the site of the first hand transplant in the United States. His extensive knowledge and caring nature earned him the 2012 Best Cosmetic Surgeon award from readers of Fairfield County Weekly.
As surgical director of NYC Surgical Associates, Dr. David Greuner is tasked with staying on the cutting edge of minimally invasive procedures that require as little downtime as possible from his patients’ fast-paced lives. However, the double board-certified surgeon's reach isn't limited to those who come into the office. As a past contributor to The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors, and the news broadcasts of both ABC and CBS, Dr. Greuner often finds himself addressing a nationwide audience.
Of course, he earned his spot as one of his specialty's go-to experts through years of training and innovation. As a pioneer of No-Knife EVLT, Dr. Greuner took much of the pain out of spider- and varicose-vein treatments, creating a system that closes blood vessels with a laser instead of a switchblade. His efforts earned him a Top Surgeon designation from Consumers' Research Council of America
three years in a row and professional leadership roles as a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and a fellow of the International College of Surgeons. They also translated into professional success; with six offices throughout the New York metro area, Dr. Greuner now oversees a team of practitioners that specializes in minimally invasive vascular and cosmetic procedures.

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.

The aestheticians at Harlem Skin Clinic want men and women of all skin types to experience the beauty of healthy skin. To that end, founder Seven Brown has built her business with the Fitzpatrick scale in mind, customizing each and every treatment depending on where a client falls on the skin color scale. Once the clinic has identified the client’s skin type, it can use that information in a number of ways. For instance, before peels, skin of color is prepped with a melanin suppressant to ensure a positive outcome. And for laser hair removal, technicians use different laser types to deliver safe and effective treatment for people of all colors. This specialization has even attracted the notice of Eyewitness News ABC 7, who featured Brown and her business in a segment about beauty treatments for clients with darker skin.
Dr. Leslie Gerstman doesn't just fight aging and other skincare woes with cutting-edge nonsurgical treatments; she also teaches patients how they can look fresh-faced by de-stressing, improving their diets, and stopping all their clocks. For more than a decade, Dr. Gerstman has been using this holistic approach to create personalized regimens tailored to each patient's aesthetic goals and skin type.
For instance, she might look at two patients with acne and determine one needs an Isolaz broadband light treatment to stop excess oil production and that another needs a gentle fruit-acid peel or topical retinoid to unclog their pores. No matter what treatment the client needs—acne remedy, Botox injection, Ultherapy eye lift—Dr. Gerstman first performs a one-on-one consultation and explains how she'll achieve noticeable results without too many alterations.
