Dr. Sandra Bouzaglou was drawn to her present career while on a plastic-surgery rotation at Loyola University in Chicago. There, she learned how cosmetic and reconstructive surgery could help improve patients' self-confidence. Dr. Bouzaglou’s experience moved her to open Kentucky's first accredited outpatient plastic-surgery practice, The SurgiCenter, which is located within The Center for Plastic Surgery. Here, Dr. Bouzaglou and her medical team restore and enhance bodies by offering breast augmentation, leaving tummies flatter, and skin thinner with liposuction. The team also performs dramatic nonsurgical med-spa treatments, including laser hair removal, tattoo removal and micropigmentation with a VersaPulse laser, and fat-reducing contouring with CoolSculpting.
Dr. Monica Hall, Sonata's beauty-bestower-in-chief, earned accolades as a general surgeon before shifting the focus of her laser sight solely on reconstructive procedures and cosmetic care. Microdermabrasion scrubs away dead skin cells to make room for the growth of fresh young cells. This facial power wash is effective at minimizing fine eye lines and large pores, and, with several treatments, it can even reduce deep-rooted dermal discoloration caused by the sun or the makeup still caked on from childhood beauty pageants. Set in Sonata's serene skin-scrubbing suites, this treatment takes about 30 minutes, and recovery is usually marked by nothing more severe than redness and a mild sting that may last 24 hours. After treatment, replenish your moisture reservoirs by caking buffed areas in cosmetic cream or the tears of a phoenix.
The technicians at Laser My Tat carry an arsenal of some of the highest pulsed lasers to attack cellulite, stretch marks, and tattoos. They use the Q-Switched laser to break apart ink particles into tiny pieces that the body can absorb naturally. They’re also armed with radio-frequency technology to help combat cellulite and stubborn fat deposits in the area.
Navy vets Dr. Jan J. Weisberg, M.D., and Melanie Weisberg team up to fight dermal discoloration with PCA products and skin-evening microdermabrasion. During the noninvasive 30-minute treatment, a certified beauty booster gently cleanses and exfoliates the visage to uncover the fresh face or pile of gold coins below. After the skin scrubbing escorts dead cells off of the premises, a moisturizing peel works to deeply hydrate arid skinscapes. Patients can leave the Weisbergs' office with smoother and brighter skin, and may help diminish the looks of fine lines, scars, and cheekbone tattoos.
Unlike Daddy Warbucks, the robot sent from the future to protect Little Orphan Annie and her signature dimples, the techs at VelaSpa make it their mission to eradicate dimples onsite. Armed with the FDA-approved VelaShape hand piece, they harness infrared light and radio frequencies to scatter and smooth cellulite. In addition to their bread-and-butter treatment, the med spa undoes the malicious work of genetics and environmental factors with sublative skin rejuvenation, a 20-minute facial treatment that uses laser light to help decrease the signs of sun damage and pigment irregularities.
Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.
