The doctors at Brand Surgical Institute specialize in lap-band and sleeve gastronomy procedures, both of which facilitate rapid weight loss by reducing the capacity of the stomach. But that doesn't mean that they view these procedures as a quick fix?instead, they help each of their patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment, providing dietary education, support, and tips that go beyond "eat a head of broccoli for every bite of chocolate." The institute also performs cosmetic procedures, from tummy tucks and liposuction to non-surgical, body-contouring VelaShape III sessions.
The dermatologists, physician assistants, and nurses at American Dermatology Centers are well versed in all dermatological matters, specializing in both cosmetic and medical skin problems.

The center also treats faces with cosmetic fillers such as wrinkle-reducing Botox, Dysport, and Restylane. More serious epidermal issues are referred to the center’s dermatologists, who are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of all disorders of the skin, hair and nails including acne, cysts, allergic reactions, skin cancer and melanoma.
