Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Dr. Joseph J. Castellano and the staff of aesthetic artisans at Castellano Cosmetic Surgery Center bestow patients with the gift of natural beauty through modern treatments, including FDA-approved Botox. During the 10-minute procedure, a certified skinsmith injects the serum into wrinkled areas with a tiny needle, slowing down wired facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses and confiscating their stash of Pixy Stix. The skin tonic may smooth out forehead furrows, crow's feet, and frown lines for up to six months, and results begin to appear on the visage within a few days. Nonsurgical in nature, the treatment results in no downtime, but patients should avoid lying flat or engaging in strenuous exercise, such as bench-pressing glazed donuts, for four hours.
Weight & Body Solutions' experienced physicians employ technologically enhanced weight-reduction techniques and more traditional nutrition-based programs to help clients melt away unwanted fat and reveal svelte silhouettes. Patients relax in the comfortable atmosphere of a private room as they discuss their beauty goals with informed counselors, asking questions about their various treatment options, which include weekly plans enhanced with thorough exams and energizing vitamin shots along with medical treatments such as tumescent liposuction. Liposuction is done under local anesthesia using a small cannula and requires very little downtime, sending patients back to work within 24 to 48 hours—just in time to sport sleek silhouettes for Risky Business–themed casual Fridays.

At Becoming New, a diverse team of licensed cosmeticians, a paramedical esthetician, a massage therapist, and nail technicians enhance appearances with modern technology. The experts shy away from invasive surgery and instead employ ultrasonic technology to target fat deposits and ultherapy to sculpt arms and necks. The spa’s arsenal also includes detoxifying and slimming body wraps, as well as chemical peels that help erase fine lines and other signs of aging. For gentler rejuvenation, skin experts treat pores to blueberry and champagne facials. The staff add the finishing touches to appearances with permanent hair removal and manicures that brighten nails with CND Shellac and Gelish polish, which resist chipping even while slapping a rude statue.
Led by Dr. Richard Castellano and Dr. Randall Weyrich—renowned facial plastic surgeons who have performed thousands of face-lifts—the cosmetic professionals at Image Lift encourage clients to explore their options before making a treatment decision. To that end, the doctors offer weekly seminars, free consultations, and a series of medically themed choose-your-own-adventure novels to prospective clients in order to answer any questions they may have regarding procedures such as Botox, laser resurfacing, and ultrasonic skin tightening. When they aren't freshening faces in the office or spending time with their families, the specialists raise awareness for local and national causes.
