Dr. Deirdre Rhoad spent her childhood learning the skills she would eventually need as one of the Austin area's few female plastic surgeons. Her grandmother taught her to sew, and her piano teacher helped her learn how to hold her hands in a steady position. But though those two had an impact on her dexterous fingers, it was her parents and siblings who instilled in her a deep sense of empathy and inspired her to help women feel less self-conscious.
At Rhoad to Beauty MedSpa, the board-certified plastic surgeon and spa medical director Dr. Deirdre Rhoad and her staff do just that with noninvasive skincare services. Molly Teeple removes spider veins and acne, and boosts collagen production with photofacials. To smooth wrinkles, she injects dermal filler into laugh lines, and they slough off dead skin cells with medical microdermabrasion.
True to their practice’s name, Synergy Plastic Surgery's board-certified surgeons mesh their medical expertise with innovative methods to achieve their clients’ aesthetic goals. Dr. Mahlon Kerr takes pride in his approachable manner and experience in a range of procedures, and Dr. Amy Bekanich specializes in women’s reconstructive and cosmetic treatments. Whether performing face-lifts, tummy tucks, or Shakespeare, the pair places an emphasis on patient comfort and satisfaction. At the clinic’s med spa, Botox injections and noninvasive lasers work to smooth and rejuvenate skin.
Dr. Lawrence Broder of Beleza Med Spa began his 16-year career in surgery and primary care, but has shifted his dedication to medical aesthetics, helping people reshape their bodies and evade signs of aging. He continues to build on his surgical knowledge with coursework and bihourly games of Operation, and has slimmed more than 500 physiques with laser-driven SmartLipo and smoothed hundreds of complexions with DOT (dermal optical thermolysis) resurfacing treatments. Dr. Broder supervises each of Beleza's locations, ensuring that every confidence-boosting injection, augmentation, lift, and peel is done with expertise and professionalism.
Before Toccare Medical Spa existed, its board-certified ophthalmologists performed cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgeries at a practice called Texas Oculoplastic Consultations, next to an ambulatory surgery center. So pleased were patients with their level of care, they demanded that TOC's staff expand into the skincare field. This suggestion gained momentum and manifested in TOC Aesthetic Skin Care which, over the following 10 years, evolved into Toccare Medical Spa. Today, TOC, the surgery center, and Toccare Medical Spa sit side-by-side. At the latter, the doctors oversee treatments such as clinical facials, peels, and dermal fillers that don't require going under the knife.
Altering someone's appearance requires an intuitive, artistic understanding of the human figure as well as an extensive amount of medical training. At Personique, Drs. Robert Ersek, Randy Buckspan, and James Sheridan—board-certified plastic surgeons who have collectively treated more than 50,000 patients—embrace both aspects of their chosen calling. Their procedures combine equal parts art and science as they use advanced surgical techniques to contour waistlines, reshape features, reconstruct damaged areas, and help give patients the new look that they desire. As opposed to other medical centers, Personique exclusively uses local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, which provides a more comfortable experience without the potential complications of general anesthesia.
Personique's staff of medical professionals, technicians, and aestheticians also offer nonsurgical alternatives that still strive to create more dramatic results than typical spa treatments. These procedures incorporate cutting-edge technologies as well as clinical-strength skincare products, such as those by Vivitè and Epionce. Cosmetic laser systems help remove unwanted stubble or improve skin tone, IPL technology can minimize the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation, and noninvasive liposuction alternatives help patients banish stubborn areas of fatty tissues. Additionally, the staff members perform a variety of specialized chemical peels that can accomplish a range of goals, from unclogging pores and treating acne breakouts to leaving the skin looking as youthfully radiant as a car's first pair of turn signals.
