After more than two decades of practicing surgery in the area, Dr. Luis Vi?as?a board-certified plastic surgeon?decided to open L.A. Vi?as Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in 2009. Here, he performs and supervises cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, as well as preventative procedures alongside a well-trained staff of medical assistants, aestheticians, and a physician-assistant laser specialist. The med spa specializes in anti-aging treatments, including injectables, chemical peels, and laser treatments that resurface skin to minimize wrinkles, age spots, and scarring.
The center?s massage therapists specialize in postoperative lymphatic drainage techniques, which help reduce inflammation, prevent scarring, and speed healing by enhancing the system?s ability to filter out toxins hiding behind cardboard replicas of the lungs. In addition to his surgical duties, Dr. Vi?as partnered with his daughter to create a skincare line?V Therapeutic?that targets acne without stripping away moisture.

His work has been recently profiled in the Sun-Sentinel and he graced the cover of Banzai Wellness magazine in October 2012.
Helmed by Dr. William Murtagh—a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience—the medically-trained aestheticians at Premier SkinCare & Spa beautifies clients with a varied array of cosmetic surgeries and spa services. Dr. Murtagh performs surgeries that include face-lifts, breast augmentation, and liposuction. The rest of the staff, meanwhile, performs anti-aging facials using the latest technologies, such as the Intraceutical Oxygen facial, which is ideally used post-microdermabrasion or chemical peel.
At Gardens Laser Spa, Dr. Douglas D. Dedo and Dr. Neil C. Goodman combine more than 40 years of experience to offer their patients the latest advancements in medical cosmetic procedures. Both doctors are leaders in the field of laser aesthetics and train other physicians in cosmetic technologies. The duo has performed 8,000 successful liposuction procedures and more than 15,000 cosmetic injectable treatments.
Dr. Dedo—who is triple board certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, cosmetic surgery, and otolaryngology—is a clinical assistant professor at the University of Miami and the recipient of numerous awards for his medical and volunteer work. He specializes in face-lifts, such as the 3-2-1 laser face-lift, a procedure that he developed with Dr. Goodman. This less invasive face-lift allows patients to have three areas treated and go back to work within two days with only one intraoperative laser treatment.
Dr. Goodman is a board-certified gynecological surgeon and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. An expert in laser-assisted liposuction, Dr. Goodman acts as a consultant for Sciton and Palomar Technologies , advising them with potential improvements for their laser equipment and laser-tag strategies.
In Dr. Andrew Ress's long career, he's worked at some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the country. Not only has the doctor earned degrees at Cornell and the University of Miami, but he also served as Chief Resident at the Mayo Clinic, and even held a research fellowship at Johns Hopkins University. In fact, he's made multiple contributions to the field of plastic surgery, co-authoring several peer-reviewed papers and even co-holding a patent related to the key ingredient in Botox.
It's no wonder then, that men and women trust the doctor and his staff to perform all sorts of complex cosmetic procedures, not just the ones that involve drawing smiley faces on their cheeks. Some come to his office for simple non-surgical services, such as medical-grade chemical peels or fat-reducing CoolSculpting treatments. Other patients seek more involved procedures, from face and neck lifts to tummy tucks.
Liv Plastic Surgery by Dr. Ress enhances its patients' natural radiance by performing a variety of both surgical and noninvasive procedures. Dr. Andrew Ress?a physician with board certification in general as well as plastic surgery?continues to embrace the most advanced improvements in cosmetic care as he refines the techniques he uses to perform facelifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, and other services. However, the practice's noninvasive treatments are also capable of generating dramatic changes. Cosmetic laser systems can zap unwanted stubble, eliminate spider veins, or even minimize the appearance of acne scars, sun spots, wrinkles. Microdermabrasion treatments and exfoliating chemical peels help even out skin tone by buffing away dead skin and dried cake frosting from the face, and medically-designed weight-loss programs can help patients achieve the figure they want over time.
