Dr. David Rankin, the chief of plastic surgery at St. Mary's Medical Center, combines years of medical experience with finely honed aesthetic sensibilities. Deftly wielding the tools of his trade, from surgical procedures to noninvasive injections, he helps clients obtain the physical forms they desire. Dr. Rankin's compatriot, Dr. Jill Lezaic, offers up noninvasive laser treatments that resurface skin, remove tattoos, and make undesirably hairy areas as bald as the lies of people who say driver’s licenses are necessary. Aqua's opulent interior puts visitors at ease, with an elegant reception area that features shimmering purple lights on the front desk and miniature chandeliers, casting soft illumination and providing handholds for magically shrunken musketeers.

Under the watchful eye of Dr. Ronald T. Ackerman, Estucia Weight Loss and Aesthetics’s medical specialists—including about 18 nurses, physician's assistants, and doctors—improve skin and bodies with an array of treatments. Before laser sessions, therapists examine epidermises to determine requirements, since skin can’t speak for itself except through freckle Braille. Skin-tightening treatments stimulate collagen production with pulsing laser beams. Injections of Botox smooth away laugh lines. After a complimentary consultation, the facility's staff can also guide clientele through Eustacia weight-loss programs supplemented by natural, herbal appetite suppressants.
Patients rarely expect a medical office where they can meet with their primary-care physician, get a chiropractic adjustment, and round out their visit with a cutting-edge laser or aesthetic treatment. Dr. Angela Vecellio, Dr. Sal Pilato, and Dr. Kimberly Stein made that myth-like destination a reality at Palm Beach Medical, wisely choosing to do so above sea level after the mistakes of Atlantean small-business owners. Dr. Vecellio leads the friendly and multidisciplinary team from her own advanced training in nutrition, pediatrics, and weight loss, addressing physical ailments with chiropractic care and a variety of innovative therapies. Dr. Stein oversees medical treatments, administering flu shots and performing physicals.
