Gotham's Guide to Beauty and Wellness Experts
By Kari Molvar
DR. ANDREW JACONO
New York Center for Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery
Specialty: Minimally invasive nips and tucks such as the “mini” facelift, which reduces jowls, lifts the eyes and smooths folds with minimal telltale scars
Signature procedure: “French Lips,” a patented technique that plumps the lips with hyaluronic acid, targeting 15 different zones of the mouth to accentuate its curvature so the lips roll out ever so slightly, à la Brigitte Bardot
Notable clients: High-rolling media personalities, models, actors and those with keys to the weekend McMansion
Fun facts: In 2006, Jacono wrote the book Face the Facts: The Truth About Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures That Do and Don’t Work, a handy guide to demystifying surgical and nonsurgical treatments. 990 Fifth Ave.; newyorkfacialplasticsurgery.com
MARISSA LIPPERT, RD
Founder of Nourish Nutrition Counseling and author of The Cheater’s Diet
Specialty: Shaping up your diet without beating the drum of no carbs, no sugar, no alcohol. Customized daily and weekly menus help clients shed stubborn pounds, boost energy levels, address allergies or just commit to greener eating habits.
Signature service: A complete kitchen makeover wherein Lippert will restock your fridge with healthy picks from the city’s gourmet grocers and farmers’ markets, show you how to set a stylish table (including helping you shop for dinner party-worthy flatware and serving pieces) and teach you (or your staff) how to cook up wholesome meals.
Fun fact: Lippert writes her own blog, “Diet Is a Four Letter Word,” that chronicles her adventures in scouting fresh food and new restaurants around town, testing recipes and dishing on how to fit an indulgent brunch into a healthy, balanced diet (potatoes and sausage pass the test). 16 W. 23rd St.; nourish-nyc.com
