One thing is evident at Couture Dermatology and Plastic Surgery: board-certified dermatologist Dr. Candace Thornton Spann and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Marvin Spann, prefer the latest technologies. They use vShape lasers, which can treat cellulite; Lutronic Spectra lasers, which are FDA-approved to reduce melasma; and Body-Jet liposuction machines, which can remove fat without general anesthesia and a reading of Goodnight Moon. Of course, they and their staff also schedule traditional plastic surgery, dermatology, and spa services such as lifts, facials, and chemical peels.
The two board-certified plastic surgeons at Hankins & Sohn Plastic Surgery Associates, Dr. W. Tracy Hankins and Dr. Samuel Sohn, specialize in breast aesthetics. As some of the largest users of breast implants in the country, the doctors are well equipped to perform breast augmentations, reductions, lifts, and reconstructions. They also skillfully rejuvenate faces with face-lifts and Botox, and they slim bodies by sucking out fat with SmartLipo liposuction or taking off the patient’s snowsuit. In fact, the doctors partner with some of the Valley’s gastric-bypass surgeons to help contour bodies after clients have had their stomachs shrunk.
At locations across the country, the technicians of Lipo Laser Centers of America rely on advanced technology to produce the beautyifying results of surgery, only without the scalpels. Using a combination of suction, laser energy, and cooling techniques, their FDA-approved Cynosure TriActive machines can eliminate cellulite on the thighs and buttocks, while also massaging and soothing muscles. When paired with 15- to 20-minute vibration plate sessions, their low-level lipo-laser devices can help bodies shed fat and inches. In fact, after only two lipo-laser sessions, patients may observe up to two-inch reductions from their waistlines and a newfound ability to squeeze themselves through skeleton keyholes.
