Though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jeneby specializes in transforming patients' appearances, his own face may look very familiar. The diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery has shared his extensive knowledge of both adult and pediatric plastic-surgery procedures with stations such as ABC News and KENS 5, and he was named one of the best area plastic surgeons by S.A. Scene. Dr. Jeneby also offers expertise as a national trainer on topics such as Lipotherme, SmartLipo body sculpting, and DOT therapy laser skin resurfacing.
At the equally acclaimed Plastic & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Jeneby and his staff perform surgical and noninvasive procedures ranging from rhinoplasties to SmoothShapes laser cellulite treatments. The facility houses a convenient onsite lab for blood draws and a concierge room where family members can watch television or their own DVDs from home. Clients can head upstairs to Spa Black to be treated with lasers that remove unwanted hair, banish pigmented lesions, or read barcode versions of Shakespeare.
Judy Vanderbeck uses her holistic education to mollify achy back muscles with a variety of torso-cosseting services. Clients enjoy 60 or 90 minutes void of the stress and angry birds of the outside world as trained fingers treat bone cages to the long, soothing strokes of a Swedish massage or a deeper, more rigorous therapy to address injuries obtained from sports or welding airplane propellers. During reflexology sessions, the tranquility infuser adds pressure to specific points on the feet, stimulating nerve endings, and ortho-blonomy techniques aid in slowly repositioning joints and muscles to alleviate chronic tension and pain. Each therapeutic session is tailored to individual problem areas and chronic issues, leaving clients as relaxed as a play-doh sculpture in a sauna.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Victor M. Rudkin, Zerona Body Sculpting utilizes Zerona cold-laser technology to banish body fat from the waistline, back, hips, and thighs. Usually scheduled for an hour, the body-slimming treatment is administered in six 40-minute sessions over the span of two weeks. The treatment enlists the services of a low-energy laser scanner which transmits samba-playing signals to fat cells, stirring them into shimmying and shaking until becoming completely liquefied. The melted masses are then ousted through a temporary pore in the cell membrane, through the body's natural process of detoxification, as well as with the help of a pitchfork-wielding mob of metabolism. The non-invasive treatment causes no scarring or bruising, and does not require any recovery time.
Ideal Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery's offices, associated with Straka & Mcquone, Inc., are all designed to make patients feel comfortable and safe. Yale graduate and board-certified surgeon Dr. Paul Leong performs all facial treatments, except for laser hair removal, which is done by a trained technician and supervised by Leong. Each option includes a full, personal consultation with Dr. Leong to discuss treatment options and design individualized plans. Laser hair removal works over six sessions to gradually reduce hair growth, and is considerably less painful than getting dipped in hot wax and coated in feathers. The sessions may be used for underarms or any small areas—upper lip, chin, fingers, toes, or ears—but may be upgraded to a medium-sized area (such as bikini line) for an additional $59 per treatment.
