Hollywood ace Dr David Alessi to return to Niyama Maldives
Niyama Private Islands Maldives is set to welcome the return of beauty whisperer to the stars Dr David Alessi.
He jets in from the Hollywood hills to one of Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Resorts of the World for an exclusive residency at Drift by Niyama, from March 24 to April 1.
The only cosmetic surgeon licensed to practice in the Maldives, Dr Alessi is the founder and medical director of the Alessi Institute for Facial Plastic Surgery, Beverly Hills. He is board-certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology.
Dr Alessi works his magic – all without downtime – with non-surgical facelifts that will leave you looking better and feeling younger in a matter of minutes. Lift, tighten and perfect using a combination of Botox, fillers and Kybella. Plump wrinkles and folds, contour and shape the planes of your face, or correct asymmetrically aligned features. While Botox works wonders for crow’s feet and frown lines, Juvederm and Perfectha lift and contour cheeks, add volume to and contour lips, and minimise nasolabial folds, wrinkles and skin depressions. And with Kybella — the new and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to destroy fat cells — reshape your chin and jawline for a chiselled, younger look.
In honour of the long-standing relationship with Dr Alessi, Niyama Private Islands is sponsoring charity Face Forward’s 2017 Los Angeles gala fundraiser.
Founded by husband and wife David and Deborah Alessi, Face Forward provides reconstructive surgery and emotional support for victims around the world of domestic violence and human trafficking. The Arabian Nights gala saw Hollywood’s elite lining up to support, with Robin Thicke and Mel B performing. Committee regulars include Nelly and Sharon Stone, while Lana Parilla presides as Global Ambassador.
While reconstructive surgery is just the first step in the healing process, Face Forward partners with local community centres post-surgery to provide counselling, housing, job searches and legal assistance.
Niyama will sponsor the prestigious event again in 2018.
Extensively published, David Alessi is the doctor’s Doctor, with an acumen of over 200 lectures on facial rejuvenation and other medical fields. Known for his expertise in facial contouring, examples of Dr Alessi’s handiwork have been seen on Larry King Live, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News and CNN.
Niyama, a popular A-list hideaway nestled in the Dhaalu atoll, offers guests exclusive access to its twin islands – Chill and Play – conveniently connected via a picturesque bridge.
The family-friendly retreat, surrounded by picturesque shorelines and lush vegetation, has nine deluxe room categories ranging from spacious beachfront studios and one-bedroom water pavilions to three-bedroom family beach pavilions with two private pools, jacuzzi and a personal spa treatment room. With state-of-the-art amenities, in-room fridges filled with gourmet treats, a private butler plus the magic of the Maldivian island, this is the ultimate antidote to city life.
The jewel in the resort’s crown is the magnificent Crescent, a playground of five ultra-chic villas, all with private pools, for up to 14 adults and eight children. Boasting a private chef, two butlers, a housekeeper and a host of complimentary activities including a sunset dhoni cruise and movie under the stars, this over water sanctuary is the perfect paradise treat for extended families, honeymooners and discerning travellers.
