Shadid Plastic Surgery Associates proves the adage that two are better than one. Board-certified plastic surgeons Derek and Edward Shadid helm the practice, combining their medical knowledge with modern technology to give patients their desired results with the minimal amount of discomfort. They lend skilled hands to procedures that sculpt and contour the entire body, or focus on facial features. But not all of the surgeons’ procedures are surgical—their on-site medical spa welcomes clients for less invasive treatments, such as chemical peels, laser hair reduction, and Botox injections that smooth lines from frowning or excessive winking. And while experienced nurse-aestheticians administer many of the med-spa treatments, the Shadids always take part in patients’ initial consultations and oversee their care.

During each visit, patients can watch sitcoms on the office’s TVs or sit back in awe as the doctor uses a mesmerizing laughing-gas wand to pull rabbits out of their mouths.
