The quiet office of Gryskiewicz Twin Cities Cosmetic Surgery is a world away from the remote mountain regions of Guatemala. But it was in those mountains that Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz found his calling: to pursue a career in plastic surgery. While treating orphans suffering from cleft lips and palates, he couldn?t help but internalize the life-changing potential inherent in cosmetic breast augmentation.
Though he still pays annual medical visits to South and Central America, Dr. Joe has come a long way since that first experience. And wherever he goes, his reputation precedes him. A board-certified plastic surgeon, he specializes in cosmetic procedures that include breast augmentation using the "quick recovery technique", nose surgery, and body contouring. Away from the surgery room, clients also come to his spa for exfoliating Hydrafacials, skin-tightening Venus Freeze procedures, and cool sculpting fat reduction.
Body wraps increase circulation in target areas. When coupled with botanical extracts and gentle warmth, this can have a range of positive effects. Those effects are the goals of The Wrap Advantage, and they can include everything from weight loss to smoother skin. Some of this takes place through a process called lipolysis, in which the ingredients applied with the wrap help break down fat cells. Wraps are also intended to release the toxins that can build up in fats, as well as lessen cellulite, and the staff at The Wrap Advantage can help each patron identify their own health and aesthetic goals.
The key to long-term weight loss is maintaining a healthy diet and sensible exercise regimen. However, sometimes those strategies need a little boost to get them going. That's where Contours comes in. The center offers a host of non-surgical body contouring treatments, taking inches off of waistlines with options ranging from LED-powered Lipo Light sessions to traditional body wraps. Contours also helps clients maintain their results with customized, doctor-supervised weight-loss programs built to minimize toxins and kickstart metabolisms.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Jonathan Witzke earned his stripes in surgical centers and hospitals before becoming the namesake of Witzke Plastic Surgery, where he and his savvy staff perform an array of invasive and noninvasive procedures. Cosmetic concerns fade with simple IPL facials, Botox injections, liposuction, and breast augmentation procedures. For injured hands, certified therapist Joan Collins acts on more than two decades of experience with procedures that aim to quell carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or a thumb war injury.
Wide, youthful-looking eyes free of puffy bags. Smoother skin. A taut physique free of cellulite. These are just a few of the physical upgrades offered at Shu Cosmetic Surgery, a practice helmed by medical director Dr. Steven Shu, his physician assistant Katie McClellan, and his team of medical aestheticians. Visitors to the modern, inviting practice can choose from treatments such as minimally invasive liposuction, natural breast augmentation, and mini face-lifts that lift away deep fine lines. At an onsite med spa, the physician assistant and medical aestheticians perform nonsurgical treatments including chemical peels and laser hair removal.
Dr. Stachowicz has board certification in plastic surgery and 16 years of experience. He is trained in general surgery at U of Minnesota, and completed his plastic surgery fellowship in Indianapolis and is licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Patients don't have to weave their way through administrative red tape or vault over the reception desk in order to consult with him. Instead, Dr. Stachowicz's patients bypass the front office and talk directly to him, even calling him whenever they need to prior to surgery and during recovery.
Before beginning any surgery, he takes as much time as necessary to learn about the patient, explain their surgical options, and recommend a course of action. Afterward, he stays in contact with patients to make sure they're healing and their spirits are high.
