After more than two decades of practicing surgery in the area, Dr. Luis Vi?as?a board-certified plastic surgeon?decided to open L.A. Vi?as Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in 2009. Here, he performs and supervises cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, as well as preventative procedures alongside a well-trained staff of medical assistants, aestheticians, and a physician-assistant laser specialist. The med spa specializes in anti-aging treatments, including injectables, chemical peels, and laser treatments that resurface skin to minimize wrinkles, age spots, and scarring.
The center?s massage therapists specialize in postoperative lymphatic drainage techniques, which help reduce inflammation, prevent scarring, and speed healing by enhancing the system?s ability to filter out toxins hiding behind cardboard replicas of the lungs. In addition to his surgical duties, Dr. Vi?as partnered with his daughter to create a skincare line?V Therapeutic?that targets acne without stripping away moisture.
Dr. Ravinder Jarial, the head of RSJ Plastic Surgery, performs cosmetic procedures with innovative techniques to help his patients achieve their aesthetic goals. His goal for each cosmetic treatment or reconstructive surgery is simple: natural-looking results. Dr. Jarial also offers reconstructive, cosmetic, and pediatric plastic surgery. His work has been recently profiled in the Sun-Sentinel and he graced the cover of Banzai Wellness magazine in October 2012.
Dr. David Rankin, the chief of plastic surgery at St. Mary's Medical Center, combines years of medical experience with finely honed aesthetic sensibilities. Deftly wielding the tools of his trade, from surgical procedures to noninvasive injections, he helps clients obtain the physical forms they desire. Dr. Rankin's compatriot, Dr. Jill Lezaic, offers up noninvasive laser treatments that resurface skin, remove tattoos, and make undesirably hairy areas as bald as the lies of people who say driver’s licenses are necessary. Aqua's opulent interior puts visitors at ease, with an elegant reception area that features shimmering purple lights on the front desk and miniature chandeliers, casting soft illumination and providing handholds for magically shrunken musketeers.
Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Shuter invokes more than two decades of experience and a bag of nonsurgical tricks to refresh visages. During the minimally invasive Botox procedure, Dr. Shuter injects the FDA-approved serum into a single area, blocking nerve impulses to diminish the appearance of fine lines and startled facial expressions for up to four months. Treatments can be used to stamp out crow's feet, diminish forehead lines, or smooth creased glabellas (the area between the eyes).
Dr. Vartan Mardirossian has studied medicine in Italy and done research at MIT, but today it's South Florida that benefits from his years of training. Dr. Mardirossian performs cosmetic procedures that help patients look and feel their best?and not just by putting them under the knife.
The center's mission is to achieve the best results with a minimum of intervention. That's why, in addition to plastic surgery options for the face and body, the doctors offer a slew of non-invasive skincare treatments: chemical peels, Botox injections, and microdermabrasion treatments to name a few. The center relies heavily on innovative equipment, from a diamond abrasion machine for treating wrinkles to a laser system for removing brown spots and showing you which parts of a PowerPoint presentation to pay attention to.
Helmed by Dr. William Murtagh?a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience?the medically-trained aestheticians at Le Bella Spa beautifies clients with a varied array of cosmetic surgeries and spa services. Dr. Murtagh performs surgeries that include face-lifts, breast augmentation, and liposuction. The rest of the staff, meanwhile, performs anti-aging facials using the latest technologies, such as the Intraceutical Oxygen facial, which is ideally used post-microdermabrasion or chemical peel.
