KEN ANDERSON, MD, FISHR
HAIR RESTORATION EXPERT - ANDERSON CENTER FOR HAIR AND AESTHETICS

doctors2.jpg

Dr. Ken Anderson of the Anderson Center for Hair and Aesthetics, has dedicated his career to helping those experiencing hair loss and thinning hair. As a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon and lifelong artist, he has combined his technical surgical skills with his passion for artistic creation to forge a new path in a field often regarded with suspicion. Dr. Anderson points out that for many patients hair loss can have farreaching effects, from low self-confidence to negative first impressions, but there is no reason to suffer anymore. Your options are not the painfully obvious plugs of the past.

There have been vast advancements in the field of hair restoration in the last decade, such as single follicle extraction with the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration system, lasers to stimulate growth during your morning commute, platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments that professional athletes have been utilizing for holistic healing for years, and more. The natural, undetectable results are life changing for many patients. Dr. Anderson has created a different culture and approach than many other clinics that offer hair restoration as one item in a laundry list of procedures.

Hair restoration is all Dr. Anderson does. It is his sole focus, not just a side item he occasional performs. Instead of high-pressure sales or unattainable promises, the goal of the entire staff is to educate both men and women about the causes of hair loss, discuss treatment options, and set realistic goals from each treatment so that you can decide which options are best for you.

The Anderson Center for Hair is one of only two training centers for the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration system, and is the home of the American Academy of Hair Restoration Surgery, where Dr. Anderson trains physicians in the science and art of hair restoration. If you’re ready to learn what they can do to improve the health of your hair, call to schedule a complimentary consultation at either their Avalon or Perimeter office.

doctors3.jpg

Patients of Dr. Elizabeth know her as the Queen of Faces, a title she was given for her vast experience having performed thousands of facial cosmetic procedures. She has helped thousands of men and women achieve their best self with innovative technology and naturallooking surgical techniques. Her philosophy is, “everyone will notice, but no one will know.”

Dr. Elizabeth founded Atlanta Face & Body on several key principles. First, she set out to become one of the most trusted plastic surgery practices in the region. Second, she wanted to introduce Atlanta to the most advanced laser and non-surgical technologies available. Third, she combined these goals with her deep educational background and years of surgical experience to form what is now known as one of the most innovative practices in the country.

Atlanta Face & Body is home to thousands of facial plastic success stories. With a calm, inviting atmosphere and the professional, caring staff, it has become the go-to place for natural surgical results as well as innovative non-surgical procedures.

Endorsed by Christie Brinkley as how she maintains a natural, beautiful look, Dr. Elizabeth was among the first in Georgia to introduce the technique combining Xeomin® (an organic alternative to Botox®) with Ultherapy® for non-surgical skin tightening and neck and brow lifting treatments. She has also been selected a judge for Merz “Faces of America” campaign.

Atlanta Face & Body was the first plastic surgery practice to introduce Atlanta to SculpSure®, the first FDA-cleared laser option for non-invasive permanent lipolysis of the abdomen, offering nearly zero downtime with a quick 25 minute treatment time. Recently, the practice also became the first in Georgia to offer SculpSure for the neck area offering the same safe, quick, no-downtime benefit for patients with a “double chin.”

The practice is routinely among the first in the nation to offer the newest technologies to help Atlantan’s “find their beautiful.” With natural-looking results, Dr. Elizabeth’s focus is to help you be “Beautifully You!”

Dr. Elizabeth Whitaker is a Double Board-Certified Facial Surgeon and has been selected a Fellow in the American College of Surgeons.

DR. TAZ BHATIA,M.D.
INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE EXPERT - CENTRESPRING MD

doctors4.jpg

Growing up I was taught to study, and push myself for answers. To never give up. Things were not handed to me, and I’m glad they weren’t because I believe that work ethic drove me to complete medical school and residency, and eventually launch my own medical practice, CentreSpring MD – a medical practice that holistically treats patients with multiple systems of medicine.

As a little girl, I watched my mom, a business owner and entrepreneur, dedicate her time to running a small business. She didn’t let the fact that she was a “female” influence her desire to succeed. It instilled in me that with determination and dreams, I could study and work hard for success too! that’s why I’m now so passionate about empowering young girls and women to have dreams and not be stopped by failure or obstacles! I look back at those formative experiences and realize I was being prepared for something more than I dreamed of—the chance and reality to work with people every day—relentlessly pursing their health concerns to find healing. This is what inspired me to write my latest book, the Super Woman Rx, which divides women into five unique Power Types, and gives them individualized plans to follow, much like I would give in the patient room at the Center.

My journey into this field has been a hard fought combination of conventional, functional and integrative medicine. My own health crisis after my residency drove me to study system of medicine I could get my hands on, seeking answers for my health problems. This was my journey into a new way of practicing medicine, beyond the conventional ways I was taught in med school.

Now, along with my team of seven board-certified providers and two locations, Brookhaven and Johns Creek, we’ve seen thousands of patients. Everyone from newborns to millennials to retirees, all facing issues from simple to complex but often without hope. It’s become my life’s mission to understand each person’s unique makeup, to help them go beyond the medical and understand how to become whole again.

Hale /hāl/ adjective: Free from defect, disease or infirmity, retaining exceptional health and vigor. Imagine you are at your doctor’s visit. After waiting 45 minutes, you are seen. You leave 7 minutes later confused with a bunch of new prescriptions. It doesn’t take much to imagine, as you may have experienced this scenario in the past. Dr. Elliott goes further than the 7-minute rushed doctor visit. As an expert in her field, she has transformed her clients into healthy, robust people that vibrate with life.

By providing personalized care plans and the attention you deserve, Dr. Elliott can guide you to the person you knew you could be. Dr. Elliott lives and breathes Whole Body Health & Beauty. That is why she founded Hale Healthcare; to get you back to Living for LifeTM!

“We offer an array of services to keep people vibrant and beautiful. I love that I can offer clients comprehensive care and innovative treatments.” Says Dr. Elliott.

For this reason, her clinic offers services in primary care, hormone replacement, weight loss, Botox®, Juvéderm®, stress management, hair regeneration, and cosmetic lasers. A devoted part of her practice is preventive medicine for women’s health. She offers an exciting innovative technology called Votiva® to help women with feminine health concerns.

“Women are suffering in silence. They are experiencing feminine dryness, pain, and urinary issues due to hormonal changes. As a result, frequent infections and embarrassment occur. Regrettably, these changes are affecting their confidence, arousal, and relationships. Women might believe little can be done. Presently, this is a promising FDA-approved treatment for women looking for a non-hormonal, non- surgical, less than 30-minute procedure that offers effective results.” -Dr. Elliott

Dr. Elliott invites Modern Luxury readers to a complimentary consultation. An exclusive Open House Event will be held on November and December 14th at 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m for women who are interested in learning more about Votiva®. RSVP, space is limited.

DENETA H. SELLS, MD, FAAP
PEDIATRICS EXPERT - INTOWN PEDIATRIC & ADOLESCENT MEDICINE, P.C.

doctors6.jpg

Dr. Deneta Sells founded Intown Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine in 2006 to provide warm, friendly, and excellent care for the growing population of in-town families. The practice started in a charming Grant Park bungalow, but quickly outgrew the space. In December 2009, Intown Pediatrics relocated to a larger space in Glenwood Park, not far from its original location. The continued success of Intown Pediatrics made it essential to add another office, resulting in the Brookhaven location, which opened in May 2017.

Dr. Sells graduated from Harvard College in 1992 with a degree in Sociology and received her medical degree from the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in 2003. She completed her residency in pediatrics at the Morehouse School of Medicine. Dr. Sells is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and serves on the Board of the Georgia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Dr. Sells’ personal philosophy is to be a true ‘community pediatrician’: involved in neighborhood activities and committed to partnering with families and institutions alike to make our city a better place for all children. The mission of Intown Pediatrics is to be a welcoming, “first-class”, accessible practice. Intown Pediatrics values its families and its employees, finds a way to make a difference, and has fun.

The greatest strength of Intown Pediatrics is its people. Dr. Sells has selected a team of excellent clinicians, all of whom have as great a passion for pediatrics. Dr. Sells believes that providing healthcare that goes “above and beyond” starts with the patient experience before they even arrive at the office. Parents are encouraged to check in from home and complete their “pre-visit” work from the comfort of their sofas. This allows time them to prepare for their visit and provides the office with their concerns and questions in advance. This latest technological advance has been very popular. It is but one example of the care and thought Dr. Sells puts into every aspect of the Intown experience.
