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.

You might recognize Juva Skin & Laser Center's Dr. Bruce Katz from TV. He's appeared on Today to demonstrate the powers of the Picosure laser, which he uses at his clinic for tattoo removal. Dr. Katz has lifted thousands of inked-on butterflies, hearts, and names of bands you never got around to starting—and that's just one of the ways he beautifies his patients with lasers. He and his team also use noninvasive beams of light to contour physiques, tighten loose skin, and minimize signs of sun damage.
To complement the laser treatments, the staff offers an array of other aesthetic treatments as well. The staff performs cosmetic surgeries that range from face lifts to breast enhancements. For another anti-aging option, clients can opt for Botox, Restylane, and other beauty injections that minimize wrinkles and frown lines, leaving faces looking naturally rejuvenated.
When Dr. W. Mark Warfel was in high school, his talent as a sculptor earned him a scholarship to art school. In addition to learning the finer points of color and composition in his studio-art classes, he pursued a premed degree. After college came medical school, followed by multiple residencies, and today he's a plastic surgeon with his own practice.
Dr. Warfel's background, like the baking-soda volcano Michelangelo glued to the Sistine Chapel, represents the intersection of art and science. He uses what he learned in both fields to craft new looks for patients. He also continues to refine his techniques to ensure safe, minimally invasive procedures. His face-lifts, for instance, leave smaller scars than ones using traditional methods. Patients can also opt for nonsurgical services, such as laser skin resurfacing, to achieve fresher, more youthful-looking complexions with little downtime.
