Clients looking for more dramatic results can explore the doctor’s surgical options, which can transform torsos, limbs, and faces into stunningly youthful, and often undetectably natural, versions of their former selves.
With a menu that introduces traditional Italian fare to a modern culinary sensibility, Adesso Bistro's chefs have garnered acclaim from a host of publications including the Vancouver Courier and the Globe and Mail.
