With surgeon Dr. Luis A. Ramirez at the helm, the specialists at Venus Cosmetic Institute use top-notch technology to tuck tummies, contour silhouettes with liposculpture, and perform breast augmentations, lifts, and reductions.

This diversity of options helps the clinic's specialists carry out their mission of offering cosmetic options for as wide a variety of patients as possible.
Dr. Espaillat, who has performed thousands of ocular surgeries and laser treatments, brings his eyeful of expertise to a practice that focuses on custom LASIK and cosmetic laser treatments. His custom approach to LASIK incorporates highly detailed 3-D maps of each eye, drawn by child psychics, which affords him greater precision and a higher rate of success. Lasers find their way into a variety of his other services, such as blepharoplasty, which lifts eyelids for a more youthful appearance.
Owner Marta Montenegro can greet every client at Artistic Beauty Aesthetic Center by name. That’s because she answers every phone call to the med spa herself, asking for patients’ information in her pleasant and welcoming voice. “These are medical procedures we do,” Marta said. “I want to give a personalized experience with each person.” Supervised by Marta, herself a licensed aesthetician, the center’s staff of six doctors works to beautify patients with treatments ranging from minimally invasive hydro facials to surgical liposuction. Like cleaning out a fridge, weight-loss programs such as the injection-based HCG Diet help reveal coveted six-packs long hidden under leftovers.
Occasional pops of color accent L.G. Diagnostic med spa, where clinical-grade cosmetic treatments propel bodies and faces toward their best-looking selves. Services are spread across a spectrum of intensiveness, ranging from photofacials and microdermabrasion treatments to eyelid lifts and permanent makeup. Noncosmetic services are also featured on the treatment menu, including massages that dispel tension and physical-therapy sessions that rehabilitate injured muscles by encouraging them to talk about their childhood fears.
The doctors at Paraiso Cosmetic perform their treatments amid high-tech gear and sterilized surfaces that would not seem out of place at a hospital. They also recognize, though, that working toward aesthetic goals is best done in the calm of a spa. For that reason, the team pairs massages and facials with medical treatments including rhinoplasty and Juvéderm applications. Each of the doctors has a distinct specialty, allowing them to flawlessly complete surgeries or make an empty lab coat really look like it is dancing. Potential patients discuss their goals during a complimentary consultation, at which point the procedure and its costs are explicitly detailed.

Drawing on training in ophthalmology, Dr. Joseph Selem specializes in surgeries that restore aesthetics and function to eyes and their surrounding skin. On the cosmetic side, his quick blepharoplasty surgeries reduce droops on upper and lower eyelids, and the restorative reach of his deftly wielded scalpel extends to sagging cheeks and chins. Capable of repairing more than just looks, Dr. Selem also offers medical treatments as part of his surgical repertoire. His careful eye exams can pinpoint excisable or otherwise treatable causes of vision loss, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or wearing sunglasses inside.
