For more than 30 years, Dr. Haroon Aziz has worked to narrow the distinction between cosmetic surgery and art. He brings his ambitions and extensive medical expertise to Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, Inc., where he oversees surgical procedures that range from face-lifts and blepharoplasty to tummy tucks. Dr. Aziz always prepares patients for major procedures with a thorough examination and consultation, during which he presents myriad image-altering options and recommends solutions based on the client's needs and preferences. Despite his wide-ranging expertise, including Botox injections, the doctor refuses to put on a one-man show, and instead relies on a licensed aesthetician to rejuvenate appearances with noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion facials.
Beyond its rust-and-silver-hued metal sign, Monarch Health's patients meet with Dr. Deborah Cole-Sedivy and an adept medical staff of certified nurse practitioners. In the cosmetic-therapy center, a trio of LightSheer Duet lasers scours skin's excess fuzz. Medical staffers bustle to and fro, working to personalize aesthetic services, such as facials and chemical peels, and families mosey into appointments for health surveys, physical examinations, and diet-and-lifestyle assessments. Therapists augment many treatment plans with natural foods and herbal supplements, which use Mother Earth's bounty to boost health without the dangers of bench-pressing a seemingly lonely bear cub.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Angelice Alexander, the staff at Pro-Health Services harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, which is designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches, depending on patient's weight. In each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid deposits may then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
Laser Ohio beautifies bodies with FDA-approved spider-vein-removal treatments. At the start of the treatment, which lasts 15–45 minutes, a technician will photograph the body area of choice for your medical files and the office refrigerator. A Laser Ohio staffer will then clean the epidermis to remove oil before gentle laser pulses heat abnormal veins without damaging surrounding skin. The treatment induces almost no pain—with each pulse the rough equivalent of a snapped rubber band—and necessitates little downtime. On average, it takes at least 2–5 treatments to get rid of spider veins, and 87 to get rid of veins entirely for a sleek, streamlined circulatory system.
The medical staff at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery has the clinical knowledge and artistic touch to transform patients from head to toe—and they have the awards to prove it. The team includes four board-certified plastic surgeons with more than 50 years of combined experience: Drs. Timothy Treece, Susan Vasko, Robert Heck, and John Wakelin. All four were ranked top 5 doctors for plastic surgery in the 2010 Docs Rate Docs survey conducted by the Columbus Dispatch and WBNS-TV. More recently, Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery earned the 2012 Consumers' Choice Award in aesthetic medicine, and as also named a top aesthetic medicine practice and laser hair removal center in the 2012 Readers Choice Awards of ThisWeek News. The center has also earned prestigious Diamond-level provider status from Allergan, the maker of Botox. These four caring doctors can perform cosmetic surgical procedures on virtually any body parts.
Within the medical spa and laser center at CAPS, the skilled staff offers laser hair removal and skin rejuvenation. The med spa's licensed aestheticians brighten complexions with skin treatments ranging from exfoliating chemical peels to permanent makeup that eliminates the need for applying lipstick or smooching the Kool-Aid man. Full-service practice and medical-spa locations can be found in Upper Arlington and Easton Town Center, while additional med-spa locations are founds in the Salon Lofts in Hilliard, Dublin, and Westerville.
