Three points of focus exist at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center: ophthalmology, optometry, and cosmetic surgery. Under the guidance of medical director Emilio M. Justo, M.D., the medical staff works to improve the vision of their patients, as well as assisting them in achieving aesthetic goals. The Arizona state–licensed and AAAHC-accredited outpatient surgery center allows Dr. Justo, his team, and their band of surgical elves to care for patients within the comfortable confines of their own facility, eliminating the need to journey to a hospital.
With more than 1,000 liposuctions and facelifts under his belt, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jose L. Robledo knows one thing for sure: nobody wants that “worked over” look. That’s why at Arizona Laser & Skin he and his team aim to make wrinkles and unwanted fat disappear with natural products and advanced techniques that rely on the skin’s innate healing ability. Minimally invasive procedures such as the Endotine Ribbon face and neck lift and AquaShape body-contouring system are performed alongside noninvasive beauty techniques such as FDA approved Viora cellulite-reduction and skin-tightening treatments. Micro-current facials get skin smoother than a dolphin’s raincoat by stimulating and thus helping to strengthen the facial muscles. In addition to emphasizing natural-looking results, the team prides itself on looking after the safety of its patients. A consultation precedes each treatment, during which clients find out if procedures are right for them, ask questions, and address any special needs.
The certified medical professionals at Phoenix Skin Medical Surgical Group turn back time with medical-grade cosmetic services. Dr. Lee Laris spearheads the campaign to create beautiful visages across the city. Experienced in hair restoration and cosmetic surgery, he oversees a number of procedures including face lifts, hair rejuvenation services, earlobe repair, and tattoo removal. For tattoo removal procedures, technicians use the newly FDA-approved PicoSure Laser to quickly remove even the toughest of colors. For a minimally invasive improvement, the doctor can also inject a dermal filler such as Botox or Juvederm into the skin, erasing lines and wrinkles around the face. Laser treatments, meanwhile, also erase sagging skin, leg hair, and regrettable tattoos, revealing the clear skin or forgotten Picasso painting underneath.
At North Valley Plastic Surgery, a dedicated team of board-certified doctors and nurses guides clients through every step of custom-tailored beauty programs. During initial consultations, the professionals help select the right treatments to address clients' skincare concerns, including acne, deep-set wrinkles, and age spots. Though the team specializes in plastic surgery, they're equally adept at laser-powered skin treatments, chemical peels, and facials. Medical-grade skincare treatments use product lines such as PCA Skin and Éminence Organic Skin Care, which delivers aesthetic results while growing an organic herb garden in your pores. After services, clients walk away with their physician's cell-phone number so that they can ask questions any time of day or night.
Though Dr. Thomas G. Kotoske is board certified in facial-plastic, reconstructive, total-body cosmetic, and head and neck surgery, it's his deep appreciation for aesthetic and artistic beauty that truly drives him. Just as he enjoys restoring vintage cars and collecting fine art, Dr. Kotoske enjoys helping patients improve their confidence and achieve their ultimate aesthetic potential. He accomplishes this by calling upon knowledge and skills acquired while earning his degree in osteopathic medicine and serving as chief resident at a level-one trauma center, where he received extensive training in facial-plastic and trauma-reconstructive surgery. He has studied with renowned cosmetic surgeons and liposuction experts, and he has discussed the latest industry advancements on several television programs.
At Body by Kotoske, the doctor performs procedures that range from tummy tucks to the Quicklift—an innovative outpatient surgery that, like a shy census taker, is minimally invasive. A licensed aesthetician and registered nurse, meanwhile, combat signs of aging with skincare treatments, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup at the center's med spa.
The resume of Dr. Marvin Borsand, president of The Body Sculpting Center, should put any prospective client at ease. He not only has been certified to perform breast augmentation since 1992, but also has been a principal investigator on a silicone study for the Institutional Review Board. Plus, he co-authored an article on breast augmentation for the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and is the current president of the Arizona Society of Cosmetic Surgery.
Breast augmentation procedures are his specialty, and he spends a generous amount of time with each client as they consider treatment, doing his best to offer honest, realistic expectations of results. He understands that each person has their own reasons for seeking treatment, from the mother wanting to firm her breasts after pregnancy, to the cancer survivor seeking her former silhouette post-mastectomy.
Of course, Dr. Borsand, along with Drs. Bryan Friedman and Elizabeth Nikolic, perform an extensive selection of other procedures, including facial contouring, sinus surgery, and even vaginal rejuvenation. They have a med spa onsite as well, where clients can pursue less invasive treatments such as laser rejuvenation and hormone-replacement therapy.
