Walking into Miami Plastic Surgery may give you an initial sense of déjà vu. That’s because millions of Americans have already seen the post-operative practice on their televisions, thanks to TLC’s Body/Work! The show, which chronicles the work of Drs. Michael Kelly and Carlos Wolf, hews closely to the practice’s reality, with the same large office that includes private consultation rooms and nationally-accredited operating areas, providing the most advanced in surgical technology. The procedures are also the same as seen on television, with the usual breast augmentation and lifts, liposuctions, tummy tucks and Mommy makeovers being undertaken. In addition, Miami Plastic Surgery offers non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures including hand rejuvenation and facial fillers, as well as endoscopic anti-aging therapies.
Named Best Plastic Surgeon with an Artistic Streak in 2010 by the Miami New Times, Dr. Jose Perez-Gurri keeps up appearances with face-lifting Botox treatments and more than 25 years of doctoral expertise. Each nonsurgical facial enhancement uses a purified natural protein to smooth the lines in skin sands like a gentle wave. The in-office treatment injects small quantities of the protein into specific problem areas, blocking nerve impulses and reducing the muscle activity that forms wrinkles. Botox treatments are quick and require little to no downtime, ensuring that sessions are easily squeezable into lunch hours or after politely excusing yourself from a dinner date. Like invisible-ink tattoos, full results can take up to three weeks to appear, and results last up to six months. Dr. Perez-Gurri is expert at addressing any patient concerns, and he and his staff can do so in both English and Spanish.
