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.
Led by Dr. Richard Castellano?a renowned facial plastic surgeon who has 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.
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 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.
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.
At Nucci Medical Clinic, spine surgeon Robert Nucci employs more than 25 medical professionals to fill his 14,000-square-foot clinic, which specializes in spinal care, orthopedics, pain management, and cosmetic plastic surgery. The staff also conducts spa-like services such as relaxation and deep tissue massages—courtesy of Licensed Massage Therapist Diana Bianchet—and skincare. Staff aesthetician Rachel Stafford draws on more than five years of experience to exfoliate with custom and microcurrent facials, and microdermabrasion treatments.
