If potential clients want to see Miami Plastic Surgery’s doctors at work, they just need to turn on the TV. That’s because TLC’s “Body\Work” documents the work and lives of two of the center’s physicians—Drs. Michael Kelly and Carlos Wolf. The television series follows the plastic surgeons as they perform various procedures, including face-lifts and tummy tucks.
Off camera, Drs. Wolf and Kelly work alongside Miami Plastic Surgery’s staff of plastic surgeons, physician assistants, and medical aestheticians to offer a wide spectrum of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments. In addition to cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries on the face and body, the center’s team specializes in med-spa services. These include skincare options such as Intraceuticals rejuvenating oxygen treatments and exfoliating chemical peels, as well as minimally invasive treatments that target cellulite and resurface skin.
Marshall Cosmétique beautifies bodies and faces with an extensive scope of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries and treatments, from simple deep-cleaning facials, to a litany of lifts, enhancements, and touch-up procedures. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Deirdre Marshall has an impressive CV—with extensive training in breast reconstruction, breast augmentation, facial and hand surgery, charitable medical missions to Vietnam and Central America, and a mantle sagging under the weight of awards and certifications from top medical schools. Here, she helps her patients fight the effects of aging with breast enhancements, facelifts, tummy-tucks, and liposuction, but can also recommend minimally invasive treatments like Botox and Juvaderm for temporary improvement.
Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.
Stephani Nguyen spends her days staring deeply into people’s eyes. But she's not trying to discern the elements of the soul—no, the lash stylist is merely using her skills to apply synthetic, silk, or mink eyelash extensions that boost the length and volume of natural lashes. She can apply anywhere from 50 to 110 lashes in a single session, opting for the greater number when her client wants eyes that really pop. Stephani is also an aesthetician, and she uses her skills in that regard to gently erase acne and signs of aging.
At Bio-Fit Anti-Aging Institute, LLC, the physician-led staff employ everything from Botox injections to laser facials to help keep Father Time at bay. But what separates them from spas is their use of medical technologies. For example, they reach for ultrasound devices during fat-reduction treatments and prescribe medications, supplements, and vitamins during weight-loss programs. For signs of aging below the surface, such as a lung that has grown a long, white beard, they can schedule hormone replacement therapy sessions.

Q&A with Coreen Mathe, Owner/Aesthetician
Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
I supplement my main services with LED light therapy and 24K nano-gold collagen gel masks.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
I customize my treatments according to my clients' needs. I like to do combination treatments. The reason my clients love them so much is that they see results immediately. All my treatments are very result-oriented.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Having my own proprietary blends, I'm consistently striving to create better products by using the best and, in some cases, very exclusive ingredients, such as the Swiss apple stem-cell extract. I'm also very proud of the edelweiss stem cell with advanced technologies, such as nanotechnology.
