Though board-certified Dr. Jacqueline Royce, D.O. oversees two laser systems and helps clients appear to be in a steady state of suspended animation, she’s not a starship captain. Rather, she wields her space-age technology as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon certified by the Board of Physician Specialties, helming a crew of licensed personnel who helps her with both medical and cosmetic procedures from microdermabrasion to liposuction. The breadth of her expertise allows her to customize her approach to each client—she has multiple strategies for weight loss and injectables such as Botox, Radiesse, and Juvéderm that help fill out facial wrinkles. Before every treatment, patients meet with Dr. Royce for a consultation. This initial appointment helps put them at ease by allaying doubts and answering questions about recovery time or whether a face-lift will make them visibly taller.
In a profile for Plastic Surgery Practice's 2011 Top Docs feature, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christian Drehsen described how a person's entire facial expression, rather than just sagging cheeks or crow's-feet, is the object of his practice at Venus Clinique Spa by Clinique of Plastic Surgery. This comprehensive approach reflects his mastery of artistic composition, as well as his extensive experience, which is capped by more than two decades of sculpting the denizens of the Tampa Bay area, including mermaids built in sand. After thorough immersion in all fields of plastic surgery at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, he sought out specialized studies in hand surgery and microsurgery and developed a deft touch with children and burn victims during his residency at Morton Children's Hospital in Louisville. His steady hand is constantly innovating ways to harmonize features. He reimagined the face-lift to replicate the firm cheeks and stifling ennui of someone in their mid-twenties and repurposed clients' fat cells as catalysts for their own rejuvenation. Computer imaging helps his patients to see and evaluate what he envisions and then collaborate in the creative process. His practice has grown to three locations, two of which offer non-surgical aging solutions. There, medical aestheticians lavish complexions in carefully engineered Obagi and SkinMedica products while a nurse practitioner injects wrinkles and sagging cheeks with seven kinds of FDA approved dermal fillers and volumizers. Lasers work overtime at the spa, smoothing cellulite, routing unwanted hair and veins, and promoting even skin all over the body.
Board-certified Dr. Jennifer Landy of The Landy Center for Plastic Surgery specializes in facial cosmetic procedures that create more youthful expressions and appearances. Before performing blepharoplasty—Italian for "eyelid lift"—Dr. Landy consults with patients to discuss the treatment, explain after-care procedures, and answer questions. A light application of local anesthetic prepares the eyelid for a tiny incision in its natural crease, which gives the doctor access to excess skin while allowing for minimal scarring after healing sets in. The 30-minute outpatient session leaves patients with reduced over-eye skin folds, and makes it possible for eyes to display their colors as prominently as flags on strike or a peacock in the stocks.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Joseph J. Castellano leads a staff of nurses and aestheticians in boosting patients' confidence and youthful looks with a technologically enhanced repertoire of surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Clients await their transformations by taking a seat in Castellano Cosmetic Surgery Center's warmly lit lobby, sinking into plush brown sofas plopped onto polished hardwood floors. Comfort escorts patients all the way through their aesthetic-enhancement services, whether they have tummies tucked or breasts lifted or reduced in one of the pristine surgery rooms, or enjoy the skin-remaking effects of photorejuvenation or a chemical peel in a private treatment room. The center's skilled aestheticians perform makeup and skincare services using a stable of medical-grade skin products from manufacturers including Obagi and Neocutis, targeting skin concerns such as blemishes and signs of aging such as wrinkles, parchment cuts, and dinosaur bites.
During a plastic surgery consultation with Dr. Eleanor Barone, she goes out of her way to outline all the procedure options available to clients so that they can make informed decisions based on expected results, downtime, and price points. She rejuvenates faces with surgical lifts, while the registered nurse on staff fights crow's feet and facial folds with beauty injections and dermal fillers. Liposuction removes unwanted fat deposits during an outpatient surgery, and noninvasive Viora Reaction treatments iron out cellulite via scalpel-free radio frequencies.
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.
The doctors and medical support staff at Adora Body Sculpting Clinic help patients attain their ideal figures with a menu of cosmetic-surgery procedures. The staff boosts confidence levels with fat removal, lifts, and tucks and snubs its smooth nose at Father Time with chemical peels, wrinkle fillers, and laser facials. Bodies feel free to bare all after laser hair removal and tattoo removal.
