Advanced Laser and Cataract Center is a complete refractive center, meaning that eye doctors John Belardo, Matt Brooks, Misty Otte, and Hanni Hagen accommodate each patient's individual needs for vision correction and ocular health with a wide variety of services. As a board-certified corneal specialist surgeon and a fellow of the esteemed American College of Surgeons who has performed more than 40,000 vision corrections, Dr. Belardo uses the latest technology to carefully evaluate the strength of the cornea before recommending a course of treatment. His diagnostic tests help determine whether a patient is a good candidate for other procedures, or whether an alternative, such as intraocular contact-lens implants, may be more appropriate.
The skilled team also performs surgical procedures to address cataracts, glaucoma, or third eyes that incorrectly predict the future, and offers basic vision care in the form of contacts and glasses.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Derek Shadid helms Shadid Plastic Surgery Associates, combining his medical knowledge with modern technology to give patients their desired results with the minimal amount of discomfort. Shadid lends skilled hands to procedures that sculpt and contour the entire body or focus on facial features. But not all of the surgeon's procedures are surgical—an on-site medical spa welcomes clients for less invasive treatments, such as chemical peels, laser hair reduction, and Botox injections that smooth lines from frowning or excessive winking. And while experienced nurse-aestheticians administer many of the med-spa treatments, Shadid always takes part in patients’ initial consultations and oversees their care.
Dr. Victoria Johnson taps her diverse experience in the medical field—ranging from family-practice medicine to emergency-room work—to perform her medical and aesthetic services at Laser Light Skin Clinic. Dr. Johnson meets with all her clients for complimentary consultations to get to know their individual skin types, beauty needs, and whether freckle constellations might predict what galaxy the aliens will come from. To meet patients' needs, Dr. Johnson can perform noninvasive services, such as laser face-lifts and skincare with SkinMedica products, or more intensive care including cosmetic injections and liposuction.
Dr. Garland Porterfield’s mission is to bring to life his clients’ envisioned image of themselves. He mostly does this through plastic surgery, in which he is board-certified and well versed in body, breast, and facial procedures. He also treats clients with non-surgical needs. His skin-rejuvenation services range from microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser-hair removal, to dermal fillers, such as Botox, that soften the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Dr. Bryan Whitlock, the founder of Whitlock Cosmetic Center, performs cosmetic surgeries and noninvasive aesthetic treatments. He specializes in breast augmentations and often scrubs in for liposuction procedures and tummy tucks. To bolster his clients’ visages, he employs Botox and chemical peels, which work to diminish the appearance of wrinkles. The doctor also uses injections to treats spider veins and lasers to remedy acne and saggy skin across the face and body.
