Certified in plastic and general surgery, Dr. James McAdoo transforms fading facial façades into enchanting visages at both of his clinic locations. Botox treatments safely flatten furrows by paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles with miniscule injections of toxins, leaving skin as soft and smooth as a kitten on a Segway. Side effects are generally minimal, with most patients reporting only a mild stinging that quickly subsides and a precognizant tingling that warns of oncoming danger. Treatments last from 15 minutes to an hour and are effective for up to four months.
The staff at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa aims to balance both art and science in each surgical and nonsurgical procedure they perform. Whether patients seek tattoo removal, a face lift, vein therapy, or lip augmentation, the specialists outline custom solutions tailored to their clients' wishes and their skin's fear of falling. These plans accompany detailed information about each procedure to help patients to make the best health decision.
Decked in Renaissance–inspired art, stately wood accents, and plush leather furniture, the medical spa of Ritacca's upper level focuses on bringing inner beauty outward. The spa's skin specialists use lasers, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments to help to reverse the signs of aging without subjecting faces to hours of Saturday-morning cartoons. Customers can further enhance silhouettes with expert waxing, gentle facials, and applications of permanent makeup.

Dr. Jon A. Kotis’s career has taken him down the hallways of many hospitals and universities. After graduating from Midwestern University School of Medicine and completing a general surgery residency at St. John’s University Hospital, he became vice president of the medical staff at Lincoln Park Hospital. Since then, Dr. Kotis has loaded walls, mantles, and refrigerators with titles and honors, most notably a board certification from the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery. His work has been recognized in various press outlets, including the television show The Doctors, which featured his pain-relieving knuckle transplant procedure.
Today, Dr. Kotis shares his aesthetic expertise at The Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. He and his staff fine-tune faces with less intensive procedures, such as Botox injections and microdermabrasion, and dramatically transform bodies with procedures including liposuction and rhinoplasty.
