Dr. John Layke MD of Beverly Hills MD
Far from being just another well-known name in the Beverly Hills cosmetic surgery industry, Dr. John Layke is considered one of the premier plastic surgeons in the nation, a reputation he and Dr. Payman Danielpour have built through years of hard work and admirable innovation in the field of cosmetic surgery. Drs. Layke and Danielpour have focused their years of education and experience into starting and running their own very successful practice, driven by the need to give everyone the opportunity to unleash the most appealing versions of themselves.
Dr. John Layke DO is well-versed in some of the most technologically sophisticated surgical procedures which he has perfected over time to earn several accolades in the cosmetic surgery niche. Some of his more popular masterpieces have made it to nationwide media platforms such as the likes of Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, and leading cosmetic magazines like Harper’s Bazaar. His proficiency in a wide spectrum of cosmetic procedures including rhinoplasty, facelifts, and his proprietary Single Incision Mommy Makeover (SIMM) has earned him nationwide acclaim and deservedly propelled him into the top ranks in the field of cosmetic surgery.
Humble Beginnings, Education, and Training
Born to a local school administrator and a full-time housewife, Dr. John Layke’s humble beginnings did belied his eventual success as an adult. Despite the fact that he hailed from a family with no background in the medical field, Dr. Layke’s sights were firmly set on the medical field and he was certain that he would delve into surgical practice with one of his peers.
As is customary of all medical professionals, Dr. Layke underwent an extensive period of learning and training which groomed him into the highly skilled professional he is today. His education started at Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where he attended medical school. Later, he went on to serve residencies at the University Of Illinois College Of Medicine in Chicago, the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group in New York, and the Nassau University Medical Center where he met his longtime friend and partner Dr. Danielpour who was also a resident surgeon. During their stay in Long Island, the two became fast friends and roommates while they learned state-of-the-art surgical procedures at the institution. Their decision to partner up and start surgical practice was arrived at during this period of training and as soon as their training was complete, they fulfilled their ambitions.
During his residency in Chicago, Dr. Layke was honored with the Vijay Maker, MD Award for Academic Excellence and was also made the Administrative Chief Resident at the institution. In 2009, he was finally awarded his California state medical license and also certified by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery.
Despite being an expert in the field of cosmetic surgery, Dr. Layke has co-authored a number of publications pertaining to general treatment, particularly in relation to the treatment of various gastric health issues including gastric cancer and gastrointestinal injuries.
Prior to the formation of their cosmetic surgery practice, the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, Drs. Layke and Danielpour familiarized themselves with all the intricacies of running a medical practice before finally relocating to Los Angeles where a small space given to them by Dr. Danielpour’s uncle would serve as their first location. Being 2009, these were difficult economic times due to the Great Recession. Furthermore, the field of plastic surgery in Beverly Hills was one that was saturated with competition which meant that they had to claw their way up past the already well-established and highly resourceful practices in the area.
As expected, their journey to the top was rife with challenges but they eventually made it to the peak. They are currently one of the biggest plastic surgery practices in Beverly Hills and are located at a premier 4,000 square-foot location in one of the most coveted areas in Beverly Hills.
1. Single Incision Mommy Makeover (SIMM)
At the top of their game, Dr. Layke and Dr. Danielpour created and perfected the SIMM procedure. The procedure specifically targets mothers who have just given birth and employs a number of techniques to create the most likeable outcome possible.
The SIMM procedure is a combination of the traditional breast augmentation and tummy tuck procedures. It uses a single incision to achieve the outcomes of both procedures. They further perfected the SIMM procedure by using silicone implants for the breast augmentations and techniques that focus on minimizing or eliminating any resultant scarring completely.
In addition to traditional facelifts aimed at reducing the effects of aging by lifting the areas of loose skin around the face and neck. Drs. Layke and Danielpour have also exceled in a highly advanced procedure that is similar to the facelift: the Minimal Access Cranial Suspension (MACS) procedure.
Much like traditional facelifts, the procedure is aimed at eradicating sagging areas of skin around the face and neck including the jowls by giving the muscle and tissue around the affected areas a vertical lift. It is highly effective in the removal of deep lines and the smoothening of furrowed or wrinkled skin to create a much more youthful appearance. Unlike the facelift, the MACS procedure is a lot less invasive and as such, requires a shorter recovery period.
3. Forehead Lift
Also known as the brow lift, this procedure is used to reduce the pronounced furrow or crease across the bridge of the nose on some people. It also reduces the prominence of creases and frown lines on the face and results in a much smoother, more youthful face. The forehead lift can only be performed on specific candidates, particularly the ones in good health and who do not smoke.
4. Nose Jobs (Rhinoplasty)
Rhinoplastic procedures are often done to enhance the overall appearance of the nose. This may be resizing it to make it more proportionate with the face or altering its physical appearance to improve its functionality as well. Rhinoplasty is often opted for by people who are not happy with the appearance of their nose especially if it appears too large or has an unattractive bump on the bridge. Dr. Layke is not only considered an expert in rhinoplasty but an artist as well.
He combines his skills and years of experience to create outcomes that are perfectly balanced, symmetrical, and proportionate to the size of the face. His patient-specific plan of action ensures that the patient gets special attention to their particular case. He works with his patients closely to help them realize the most satisfying outcomes in terms of the shape and the appearance of the nose.
5. Eyelid Surgery (Belpharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery is considered a remedy for the puffiness arising from fatty deposits around the eyes. This procedure can be done on both the upper and the lower eyelids to achieve a more “alert” appearance which is often more youthful-looking. The ideal candidates for this particular procedure are people with no existing eye conditions such as glaucoma or detached retinas. They should be of good overall health and preferably be non-smokers.
6. Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Otoplasty is used to correct both major and minor defects that cause the ears to adopt an abnormal or disproportionate shape and size. This procedure can be used to make protruding ears less prominent and more proportionate to the shape and the size of the face. People who opt for otoplasty often do so to correct ear defects that arise from accidental injuries or that have been present since birth. The procedure can be conducted on both children and adults unless there is a preexisting medical condition that may impact on their hearing capabilities if they undergo surgery.
7. Breast Augmentation
In the Beverly Hills area, breast augmentation procedures are quite popular and offered by a number of cosmetic surgeons. Drs. Layke and Danielpour’s Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group is one of the more experienced practices in this area of expertise. In addition to a wide range of procedures that involve the breast, Drs. Layke and Danielpour have perfected the breast augmentation procedure in a way that guarantees every woman of fuller and firmer yet more natural-looking breasts.
Dr. Layke and Danielpour understand better than most surgeons that individual physiques matter. As such, they engage their clients in comprehensive discussions about the visualized outcome and offer them the best option in terms of the type of implant to be used to ensure that the patient is fully satisfied with the results.
8. Body Contouring
As helpful as dieting and exercise is, getting the perfect body requires a little help from professionals such as Dr. Layke and his counterpart Dr. Danielpour. Body contouring procedures are used to get rid of the residual folds of loose skin or fat deposits on the surface of the body that cannot be removed using dieting and workout. Considered a form of “sculpting”, body contouring helps people who have experienced significant weight loss to enjoy the full benefits by giving their bodies the shape it deserves. To qualify for this procedure, patients need to exhibit a fairly stable weight for a period of about 6 months or more, be in good overall health, and non-smokers.
9. Arm Lifting
Arm lifts are a type of body contouring procedure that are largely considered outpatient surgical procedures. The procedure involves removing fat deposits or excessive skin folds that come after a significant amount of weight loss or as a result of age. It is a relatively short procedure that only takes a couple of hours during which the patient is placed under local or general anesthesia.
Liposuction is often considered a last resort for people suffering from metabolic issues that make them incapable of losing weight through dieting and exercise. The procedure directly tackles the problem by removing areas of fatty tissue in the abdomen, the upper thighs, the hips, the face, and the neck. Dr. Layke has also excelled in this field and is regarded highly in this particular cosmetic surgery niche.
11. Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins are not only unsightly, they can also be the cause of much discomfort and pain. The condition, which affects both men and women, usually causes the veins to appear on the surface of the skin in some parts of the body such as the thighs, the calves, and the ankles. These spider veins often cause a painful burning sensation and sometimes swell.
The procedure involved in correcting this defect is fairly straight-forward. First, the skin is stretched then injected with a chemical which collapsed the veins, allowing them to be absorbed back into the body. Some cases necessitate the use of lasers to eradicate the medical condition.
Beverly Hills MD Skin Care Products
In addition to a wide range of surgical procedures, Drs. Layke and Danielpour are also the proprietors of the Beverly Hills MD line of skin care products. The products are made using hypoallergenic ingredients that do not contain any irritants or abrasive constituents. They include:
