Owner Marta Montenegro can greet every client at Artistic Beauty Aesthetic Center by name. That’s because she answers every phone call to the med spa herself, asking for patients’ information in her pleasant and welcoming voice. “These are medical procedures we do,” Marta said. “I want to give a personalized experience to each person.” Supervised by Marta, herself a licensed aesthetician, the center’s staff of six doctors works to beautify patients with treatments ranging from minimally invasive hydro facials to surgical liposuction. Like cleaning out a fridge, weight-loss programs such as the injection-based HCG Diet help reveal coveted six-packs long hidden under leftovers.
Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
Dr. Espaillat, who has performed thousands of ocular surgeries and laser treatments, brings his eyeful of expertise to a practice that focuses on custom LASIK and cosmetic laser treatments. His custom approach to LASIK incorporates highly detailed 3-D maps of each eye, drawn by child psychics, which affords him greater precision and a higher rate of success. Lasers find their way into a variety of his other services, such as blepharoplasty, which lifts eyelids for a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Sean Simon has won three consecutive Patients' Choice Awards for his work as a double board-certified plastic surgeon. But if you ask him what he's most proud of, he'd likely say his skill as a listener. Dr. Simon takes the time to consult with each potential patient, hearing their aesthetic goals before suggesting a tailored treatment plan and setting realistic expectations. From there, he and his team perform procedures that might include breast augmentations, tummy tucks, tattoo removal, or the injection of dermal fillers. He can also recommend nonsurgical alternatives to invasive methods, such as laser treatments designed to smooth cellulite or reduce wrinkles, or laser hair-removal treatments, which use the new technology of the Vectus to banish unwanted hair. But no matter what the desired outcome, Dr. Simon and his staff strive to provide lasting, natural-looking results that leave their clients feeling their best.
Liv Plastic Surgery by Dr. Ress enhances its patients' natural radiance by performing a variety of both surgical and noninvasive procedures. Dr. Andrew Ress?a physician with board certification in general as well as plastic surgery?continues to embrace the most advanced improvements in cosmetic care as he refines the techniques he uses to perform facelifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, and other services. However, the practice's noninvasive treatments are also capable of generating dramatic changes. Cosmetic laser systems can zap unwanted stubble, eliminate spider veins, or even minimize the appearance of acne scars, sun spots, wrinkles. Microdermabrasion treatments and exfoliating chemical peels help even out skin tone by buffing away dead skin and dried cake frosting from the face, and medically-designed weight-loss programs can help patients achieve the figure they want over time.
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.
