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.
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.
Dr. Noel Tenenbaum strives to coalesce his extensive experience as a plastic surgeon with top-of-the-line patient care. He personalizes each procedure to the envisioned result of the clients, whether they seek younger-looking eyes, a flatter tummy, or a more candy-flavored thumb. He also offers breast augmentation, with both silicone and saline implants. Dr. Tenenbaum's practice is the only one in the area to offer SmartLipo Triplex, a laser-assisted office-based procedure that non-invasively evicts fat and requires zero downtime. Other non-invasive procedures—chemical peels, dermal fillers, and Botox and Dysport injections—round out the clinic's repertoire.
Fountain of Youth Institute refreshes faces with a Sapphire 4 photo abrasion treatment, a noninvasive four-part process designed to exfoliate skin into better well-being. During the procedure, an epidermal gardener harnesses the power of a sapphire-encrusted wand to gently and painlessly scrub away dead skin cells, prepping the face for the next generation of grins and grimaces. A relaxing facial massage follows, persuading lymph nodes to release unwanted toxins and reduce puffiness. Next, one of the institute's experienced staff members skillfully glides a microcurrent plate across the face, while also shining red and blue LED lights on the skin to tone facial muscles, oxygenate the skin, promote collagen production, and decrease surface bacteria.
The board-certified plastic surgeons at Palm Harbor Plastic Surgery Centre give clients the gift of renewed confidence through cosmetic and reconstructive procedures and skin treatments. Dr. Ross and Dr. Buck lift, tuck, and contour trouble spots across the body to reduce inches or signs of aging, reconstruct imperfections, and repair skin plagued by scars or burns. Meanwhile, non-surgical procedures alleviate insecurities, nixing dead skin cells through chemical peels or microdermabrasion or removing unwanted hair with laser treatments or tiny, tiny weed whackers.
Technicians at Florida Lipo X harness radio frequency energy to help reduce not only surface-fat deposits, but also visceral-fat deep below the skin. These treatments trigger the release of a lipase enzyme that helps break up fat molecules into particles that can be flushed out by the body’s lymphatic system. For best results, the 60-minute sessions should be performed at least once a week and followed up with brief workouts.
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.
