At Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center, owner and triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Donald Wortham uses his expertise and certifications in cosmetic, facial plastic and reconstructive, and head-and-neck surgery to sculpt and contour bodies during a range of surgical procedures. Because plastic surgery is a weighty decision, the doctor strives to inform each patient about the details about their desired service and tailor each procedure to the patient receiving it. A thorough presurgical consultation not only helps the patient understand their procedure, but also informs the physician about the patient's aesthetic concerns. With this knowledge, the surgeon devises a custom treatment plan and presents it to the patient through detailed discussion and spirited rounds of Pictionary.
Since 1996, a medical aesthetician has helmed Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center's full-service med spa. To ensure clients get the best effects, the aesthetician personally researches and evaluates many skincare lines before offering them for purchase. They remove unwanted hair with a LightSheer laser and perform a slate of Aromatic spa facials, clinical chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments.
Dr. Rebecca Long didn’t always want to be a doctor, but family ties drew her into the profession. At her sister Dr. Lara Long’s graduation, her father delivered an inspiring commencement address that included a story about how chiropractic helped to heal an infant. In that moment, Rebecca realized that she could help just as many kids by becoming a chiropractor, and, three weeks later, moved to California to start at Life Chiropractic College West.
Today, along with colleague Dr. Michael Groves, the Long sisters practice chiropractic medicine out of their eponymous clinic. Their services range from spinal correction to nutritional counseling. They perform these services for patients of all ages who suffer from sports, auto, or pogo-stick injuries. All three doctors share a passion for volunteering and bringing chiropractic to foreign countries, and together they hope to one day open a clinic in Africa to help children suffering from AIDS.
