Mountcastle Vein Centers are four medical centers that all share one common goal: helping patients overcome troublesome vein conditions. In addition to the cosmetic benefits of erasing unsightly varicose and spider veins, the centers' technicians also treat the vein problems that can cause chronic pain, ankle swelling, and fitful, sleepless nights. To accomplish this, the teams utilize an assortment of technology and minimally invasive procedures. Ultrasound-guided endovenous laser therapy uses laser light energy to seal damaged veins and sclerotherapy injections effectively treat the smaller spider veins that are still visible to the naked eye.
Dr. William Meadows is dedicated to helping his patients feel their best, inside and out. That's why he helms both the more health-oriented Meadows Medical Solutions and its fraternal twin sister practice, Elan Med Spa. Here, the doctor and his staff focus on guests' aesthetic goals, removing unwanted hair with lasers and smoothing fine lines with Botox or dermal fillers. They also specialize in weight loss programs, which combine medical exams, nutrition plans, and supplements to help clients adopt healthier lifestyles.
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.
Many aesthetic specialists boast ongoing training in the treatments they perform, but Dr. Anitha Reddy has the others beat?she's the one who trains them. The aesthetic and anti-aging physician shares her unique knowledge of injectable fillers with other professionals as a teacher and trainer for Perlane manufacturer Medicis Aesthetics, as well as through her post on the national advisory board for Merz Aesthetics, which makes Radiesse. This peerless approach to injectables isn't the only beauty tool in her arsenal, however. She also tackles sagging skin with Ultherapy, a treatment featured on The Rachael Ray Show that sends sound waves deep into the skin to tighten underlying tissues, much in the way rock 'n' roll tightens the frown muscles of 1950s principals. Dr. Reddy also assists clients in shaping figures with CoolSculpting, lipodissolve, and cellulite-reduction treatments, and helps all sizes evict unwelcome follicles with hair-battling lasers.
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.
Having cosmetic surgery can be quite nerve-racking, but patients at Cosmetic Surgery of Tampa Bay might rest a little easier in the hands of Dr. Christina Paylan, who has performed more than 4,000 cosmetic procedures and who also co-authored a surgical textbook in which she talks about how to prevent and treat surgical infections. Because she is so knowledgeable about this, Dr. Paylan has maintained a zero percent surgical-infection rate in her practice.
The veteran of Tampa General Hospital performs not only surgical treatments, such as tummy tucks and breast augmentations, but also less invasive procedures, such as dermal fillers and Botox injections. And she's a proponent of treating the body with more holistic practices, using arnica pills to reduce bruising after surgery and requiring all of her liposuction patients to get routine deep-tissue massages. Plus, Dr. Paylan's clinic has an organic med spa, where she administers vitamin-boosting energy shots, as well as perform gold-infusion therapy, which can lift sagging skin and minimize crow's-feet, and spider-vein removal, which makes legs look smoother and less menacing to butterflies.
