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.
Dr. Ravinder Jarial, the head of RSJ Plastic Surgery, performs cosmetic procedures with innovative techniques to help his patients achieve their aesthetic goals. His goal for each cosmetic treatment or reconstructive surgery is simple: natural-looking results. Dr. Jarial also offers reconstructive, cosmetic, and pediatric plastic surgery. 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.
Board-certified hair-restoration physician Dr. Alan J. Bauman halts the steady retreat of hairlines and regrows dormant headfuzz with 30-minute noninvasive laser treatments. Each low-level laser session peppers the head with gentle beams of phototherapy intended to boost circulation, cell growth, and the self-esteem that helps hair grow up strong and hardy. The FDA-approved devices penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, aiming to reduce further hair loss. Since the therapy operates without the use of thermal damage, it aims to boost the growth of hair with no discomfort, unlike applying caustic fertilizers to the scalp.
Working with state-of-the-art equipment and a wide range of non-invasive therapies, Dr. Man and his highly trained staff harvest aches, pains, and injuries from weary folds of flesh. During the thermal massage-bed treatment, heated vibrations gently shake battered bodies, increasing blood circulation, sweeping out toxins, and speeding up the body’s chi. Blasts of pressurized oxygen define the hyperbaric oxygen-therapy session, in which high air pressure enables lungs to draw in greater amounts of oxygen. Although oxygen isn’t absolutely necessary for life, this extra shot of O2 is definitely beneficial—when circulated through the blood and cerebral-spinal fluids, it promotes healing and extends the time patients can hold their breath while relieving fountains of their change.
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.
