The three doctors behind BPT Medical Center each possess a particular specialty and combine their knowledge to offer a range of services. Dr. Ronald Lubetsky, a medical doctor, treats everything from colds to unhealthy lifestyles, supplementing exercise regimens and healthy diets with prescribed weight-loss medications. Physician's assistant Ron Sherry backs up Dr. Lubetsky; while one takes x-rays, injects facial plasma, or oversees lab work, the other conducts physicals, hormone-therapy sessions, or orchestras of ultrasound machines.
Lubetsky and Sherry approach patient care from the inside out, whereas Doctor of Chiropractic Patrick Fenelus takes the opposite tactic. He helps patients manage pain and stress through musculoskeletal adjustments and massages.
At Hollywood Health & Wellness, certified practitioners tag-team stress, bodily aches, and unwanted fat. I-Lipo treatments, which target cellular fat stores with safe, low-level lasers that flush excess fat into the metabolic process, trimming up to 4 centimeters from abdomens in a single 45-minute treatment. With hands well-versed in the language of chiropractic and massage therapy, the doctor also realigns out-of whack spines and muscles, helping to reduce pain caused by repetitive motions, auto injuries, or time spent posing undercover as a coffee table.
The beauty experts at Bodyology Center specialize in nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments that take faces and bodies back to a more youthful time. For those not willing to go under the knife but unafraid of a few needles, they offer injectables and dermal fillers, as well as PRP face lifts. PRP—or platelet rich plasma—is drawn from the patient's own body and injected into the face to aid in the regrowth of collagen, blood vessels, and child-like appreciation of bubble wrap. Alternatively, the list of totally noninvasive procedures includes facials and oxygen-infusion treatments.
South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery's board-certified surgeons harness the latest laser technology, including Smartlipo—a laser fat-reduction treatment that helps sculpt healthy, active bodies beset by lingering paunch. The all-inclusive package includes Smartlipo treatment on a choice of a small area, all pre- and post-op procedures, surgeon and operation-facility fees, any necessary recovery garments, and prescription laughter to aid recovery (a $3,500 value). Smartlipo enhances body contours less invasively and can result in faster recovery than traditional liposuction, and requires only general anesthetic to prep for a series of small, precise incisions, although local anesthetic may be used in addition if needed. In about 90 minutes per treatment area, a laser does its best Death Star impression on fat cells as a tiny tube gently sweeps up the debris. Simultaneously, the laser coagulates blood vessels to minimize bruising and swelling, and it may also stimulate collagen growth and result in a firmer, more toned appearance. Many patients resume normal daily activities such as washing the mail within a day, though strenuous physical activity should be avoided for up to 10 days. Most patients see results immediately and make complete recovery within a month.
Led by Dr. Stephen Cosentino and his wife Lorena, an aesthetician and laser specialist, the medically supervised team at VIP Aesthetics performs minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in a facility that is both a functioning med spa and an education center. Dr. Cosentino partners with Empire Medical Training and often allows other physicians to observe him as he performs certain treatments. These can include tumescent liposuction or VelaShape sessions, which contour bodies, sclerotherapy injections, which battle visible veins, or photofacials and chemical peels, which soften signs of aging such as sun damage, fine lines, and “I Heart Grover Cleveland” tattoos.
