The medical director at Advanced Eye Care & Aesthetic Center, Dr. Alina Stanciu, has over 18 years of experience and is a board certified Ophthalmologist and member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. She is best known for facial rejuvenation—specifically, her nonsurgical take on the face-lift. Dubbed the European face-lift, her procedure combats signs of aging with artful injections of Botox and other dermal fillers. The anesthesia-free shots work synergistically, smoothing wrinkles and relaxing the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyes.
To complement Dr. Stanciu's signature injections, the clinic also offers comprehensive eye care. The team's treatments range from basic exams to glaucoma treatment and cataract surgery. They also correct near- and far-sightedness with minimally invasive LASIK surgery, which reshapes corneas with laser light.
Renown for Facial, Breast and Body Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Schneider is a pioneer in advancing the axillary incision for saline and silicone breast augmentation. He has offered state of the art laser surgery since 1994. Patients from around the world visit the practice each year.
You could say that Dr. Douglas M. Stevens has earned the trust of his patients. A practicing facial plastic surgeon for 16 years and board-certified by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, he graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a degree in chemical engineering and then went on to become double board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. He was also a doctor in the U.S. Navy for 12 years, where he performed facial reconstructions, and went on to found his practice in 1977. With a special knack for patient care and years of experience reducing signs of aging on the face and neck, today he helps his patents feel comfortable in his private practice before performing any of his commonly requested procedures, from surgical lifts to nonsurgical injections and laser treatments.
After fulfilling a cosmetic-facial-plastic fellowship at the Flowers Clinic in Honolulu, licensed physician Dr. John Nassif began lending his line-lifting expertise to Eye Associates of SW Florida. Amid the med spa's restful earth tones and sighing furniture, Dr. Nassif targets wrinkles with treatments such as Botox and laser skin rejuvenation. Using these and other techniques, including surgical ones, the doctor erases blemishes, enhances appearances, and corrects the underlying issues that would otherwise limit the longevity of clients' results.
"I chose plastic surgery because before this, I did an extensive amount of drawing and sculpting," says Dr. Manuel Peña. Because of these artistic talents, Dr. Peña sees the aesthetically pleasing potential of each of his patients, and because he's a board-certified plastic surgeon, he has the expertise to realize that potential. He does so in several ways—by lifting and defining drooping breasts, tummies, and buttocks, by rejuvenating tired eyelids and brows, and by doodling smiley faces on foreheads.
Dr. Peña gives back by volunteering for local and international organizations such as the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County, Careforce International in West Africa, and Operation Rainbow in Central and South America.
