During his three decades of dental experience, which included a six-year stint as a general dental officer for the United States Air Force, Dr. John N. Santin has seen a lot of smiles. And from both of his Akron Area Oral, Maxillofacial & Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center offices, Dr. Santin continues to gaze at pearly whites, keeping teeth healthy and bright with surgical and cosmetic dentistry services including corrective jaw surgery, wisdom-teeth extractions, and bone grafting. But teeth aren’t the only thing on Dr. Santin’s mind. He also provides his patients with a range of cosmetic treatments, from rhinoplasty and facial implants to Botox injections and chemical peels. The offices even come equipped with advanced ActiveFX and DeepFX fractional lasers, which are designed to blast away layers of sun damage, dead skin cells, and temporary tattoos that seeped down into the dermal layer.
At Legacy Plastic Surgeons, Drs. James Lehman and M. Devi Prasad Tantri combine more than half a century of medical and cosmetic experience. With more than 70 published articles under his belt, Dr. James Lehman is well versed in all areas of cosmetic plastic surgery, specializing in breast reduction, breast implants, and abdominoplasty. His counterpart, Dr. M. Devi Prasad Tantri, boasts more than 25 years of medical experience, and demonstrates special proficiency in hand surgery, breast reduction, and the removal of cancers from the head and neck.
Together, the doctors lead a team of skilled clinicians—many of whom have served with the doctors for more than 10 years—who revamp and beautify faces with noninvasive techniques such as microdermabrasion, facial peels, and Botox injections. Before administering any procedures or treatments, doctors consult with patients to understand their subjects' expectations and tolerance for witty knock-knock jokes.
When Dr. John Neary isn’t editing textbooks, publishing articles, or lecturing worldwide, he’s performing restorative oral procedures at his medical center. He and fellow dental surgeon Dr. Matthew Pavlick helm a range of surgical operations, from corrective jaw surgery to wisdom-teeth removal to stuck-on wax-lip removal. The surgery center also houses a cosmetic branch, where doctors perform rhinoplasties, face lifts, and Botox injections as well as laser hair-removal and other non-invasive procedures.
Board certified in plastic surgery and otolaryngology (head-and-neck surgery), Dr. Steven Goldman of Beachwood and Westlake Plastic Surgery artfully reshapes bodies and wards off the signs of aging. He tucks tummies and enhances bust lines in his clinic's in-office operating suite, while the registered nurses, medical assistants, and medical aestheticians on his team tend to less invasive procedures such as beauty injections, noninvasive CoolSculpting, and laser treatments. The clinic's med spa offerings include customized facials and pharmaceutical peels, in addition to lash extensions, body waxing, and surfboard waxing.
Captained by board-certified Dr. Jason E. Leedy, the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute provides aesthetic services that utilize the latest cosmetic technologies. After a free consultation to determine the correct dosage for individual skin and wrinkle types, 20 units of Botox will smooth finicky fine lines and wrinkles. Botox employs a nonsurgical skin-tightening formula and soft jazz to relax subskin muscles, smoothing out the crags and fissures of mature geological structures. Twenty units sufficiently treat either the area between the eyebrows, the areas near the eye, or forehead. Botox begins working two–three days after treatment, and results last around three months.
