Dr. Elijah Benioni - a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery - uses his training in basic, advanced, and high-definition liposuction to reshape figures and slim problem areas. The clinic eschews the dangers of general anesthesia for safer local numbing methods when performing these ultrasound- or laser-assisted procedures.
The clinic's other services include facial, breast, and derrière lifts, chemical peels, and facials. Fat transfer is also available immediately after the liposuction, and can be used for the face or hands. Team member Dr. Dwight C. Reynolds is a master instructor in the process of suture suspension, and Dr. Joseph Kurt Bivens is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in body contouring and breast surgeries.
Renown for Facial, Breast and Body Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Schneider is a pioneer in advancing the axillary incision for saline and silicone breast augmentation. He has offered state of the art laser surgery since 1994. Patients from around the world visit the practice each year.
At Cypress Beauty & Co., trained technicians wield files, clippers, and brushes in the pursuit of polished nails and peace of mind. During the 60- to 90-minute experience, a nail guru takes guardianship of hands and feet at a super-sanitized station, clipping and filing nails into perfect crescents and curtailing cuticles to expand keratin canvases. A coat of OPI polish in the desired color leaves nails as strong and sparkling as 10 diamond-encrusted box turtles. Both locations usher prettifiers in with sunny hues and glitzy displays of the 50 brands of beauty products they stock. Patrons can upgrade to french polish ($5 for mani; $10 for pedi) and add a sea extract marine-cooling mask ($10) or a complimentary round of applause.
Board-certified Dr. Jennifer Landy of The Landy Center for Plastic Surgery specializes in facial cosmetic procedures that create more youthful expressions and appearances. Before performing blepharoplasty—Italian for "eyelid lift"—Dr. Landy consults with patients to discuss the treatment, explain after-care procedures, and answer questions. A light application of local anesthetic prepares the eyelid for a tiny incision in its natural crease, which gives the doctor access to excess skin while allowing for minimal scarring after healing sets in. The 30-minute outpatient session leaves patients with reduced over-eye skin folds, and makes it possible for eyes to display their colors as prominently as flags on strike or a peacock in the stocks.
For more than two decades, the licensed beauticians of Premadonna's Salon have employed the latest in salon and spa treatments to bring out their clients’ best features. Facials are a part of that regimen, and the team renders them with pore-cleansing enzymes and hydrating masks. But the staff specializes in permanent makeup, using the interdermal pigmentation method—during which they apply micro insertions of natural pigments into the skin. The South Tampa location—sheathed in denim blue walls and black furnishings—also houses a team of nail technicians who buff, file, and paint nails with polish colors that are dazzling, like a turtle that runs as fast as a cheetah.
With more than 29 years of combined experience, Drs. John M. Borchers and Michael T. Mckee care for teeth the way a kindergarten teacher cares for her class. Though they won’t teach incisors how to add or properly enunciate the pledge of allegiance, the doctors do ensure that each member of the group lives in harmony with its neighbor, maintains straight posture, and remains present and accounted for at all times. To accomplish this, Drs. Borchers and Mckee administer meticulous examinations that inspect each tooth for signs of decay and crookedness. And when teeth have gone missing altogether, dental implants can serve as permanent seat fillers, dutifully chewing on any urgently overdue homework.
