Drawing on training in ophthalmology, Dr. Joseph Selem specializes in surgeries that restore aesthetics and function to eyes and their surrounding skin. On the cosmetic side, his quick blepharoplasty surgeries reduce droops on upper and lower eyelids, and the restorative reach of his deftly wielded scalpel extends to sagging cheeks and chins. Capable of repairing more than just looks, Dr. Selem also offers medical treatments as part of his surgical repertoire. His careful eye exams can pinpoint excisable or otherwise treatable causes of vision loss, such as cataracts, glaucoma, or wearing sunglasses inside.
The waiting room at BOD Cosmetic Surgery conveys both sides of the med-spa equation at a glance: utterly pristine, nurse's-cap-white furniture, paired with a luxurious chandelier and a few touches of hot pink. It makes sense that this is a place people go when they want to get sleek, whether through cosmetic surgery, waxing, or noninvasive BOD Lipolaser slimming treatments, which help patients lose inches without having to give up whipped cream on their salads. Three plastic surgeons oversee the center.

At 305 Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Daniel E. Careaga uses surgical and nonsurgical procedures to keep his clients radiant and beautiful. In two state-of-the-art surgical suites, Dr. Careaga and his staff perform surgical procedures that range from face-lifts and breast augmentation to liposuction and laser hair removal. They also specialize in nonsurgical beauty treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, and tattoo removal.
Led by a team of board-certified plastic surgeons, PREMIERE Center for Cosmetic Surgery helps clients to combat encroaching signs of aging and restore self-confidence with surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Precise injections ease wrinkles or restore volume in the skin, making faces less crinkly and easier to lay flat on the Xerox machine. Complexions are further enhanced by services including peels, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade facials. Patients looking for more intensive transformations can consult with the surgeons, whose skilled hands perform lifts, tucks, and reconstructive procedures.
Formerly a med spa, Soluna MD shifted gears in 2008 to focus more on the “med” aspect of the med spa, eschewing treatments whose job was only to pamper in favor of treatments that produced visible results, such as sclerotherapy, Botox, IPL facials, and chemical peels. But instead of letting its new medical services turn the office into a cold, clinical place, Soluna MD retained much of its med-spa comforts and ambiance. Patients relax atop padded massage beds during such treatments as SolunaSculpt SmartLipo Ultra, which permanently removes fat cells with a combination of ultrasound waves, lasers, and tiny incisions.
Before any treatment, patients can grab complimentary coffee and the occasional cake and cookies. They can also take advantage of consultations with cosmetic surgeon John W. Chang to learn more about Soluna MD's services or to discuss the advantages of adding a third ear to the elbow.
