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.
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.
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.
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.
The Lecada Medical Artistry team advises clients hoping to reduce signs of aging or amp up health with treatment plans that range from laser skin resurfacing to time-honored tactics such as vitamin injections and diet counseling to avoid blood-sugar crashes and spikes.
