In a profile for Plastic Surgery Practice's 2011 Top Docs feature, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christian Drehsen described how a person's entire facial expression, rather than just sagging cheeks or crow's-feet, is the object of his practice at Venus Clinique Spa by Clinique of Plastic Surgery. This comprehensive approach reflects his mastery of artistic composition, as well as his extensive experience, which is capped by more than two decades of sculpting the denizens of the Tampa Bay area, including mermaids built in sand. After thorough immersion in all fields of plastic surgery at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, he sought out specialized studies in hand surgery and microsurgery and developed a deft touch with children and burn victims during his residency at Morton Children's Hospital in Louisville.
His steady hand is constantly innovating ways to harmonize features. He reimagined the face-lift to replicate the firm cheeks and stifling ennui of someone in their mid-twenties and repurposed clients' fat cells as catalysts for their own rejuvenation. Computer imaging helps his patients to see and evaluate what he envisions and then collaborate in the creative process.
His practice has grown to three locations, two of which offer non-surgical aging solutions. There, medical aestheticians lavish complexions in carefully engineered Obagi and SkinMedica products while a nurse practitioner injects wrinkles and sagging cheeks with seven kinds of FDA approved dermal fillers and volumizers. Lasers work overtime at the spa, smoothing cellulite, routing unwanted hair and veins, and promoting even skin all over the body.
Hornberger Wellness & Chiropractic recently upgraded its location to an earthy, sandstone-colored building. The larger space's soothing earth tones begin triggering relief in patients before resident chiropractor, Dr. Joe Hornberger, even lays hands on them. The doctor's 26 years of experience taught him the effectiveness of a broad range of alternative-wellness therapies, spurring him to team up with Dr. Ricardo Morales, a practitioner of natural medicine, to expand both their practices and offer their patients more non-invasive healing treatments. Today, patients come to the center to heal issues from low-back pain to nicotine addiction. The center's wellness specialties include all-natural facial rejuvenation and hCG weight-loss treatment, which combines ancient acupuncture methods with ancient anticupcake shields.

Natural Health Center's doctor of oriental medicine, Mary Kay Cetan, taps into the ideologies of traditional Chinese medicine, which dates back more than 5,000 years and conceptualizes the body as a landscape affected by emotional and physical climates. Holistic services and supplements combat both acute and chronic ailments. Hair-thin acupuncture needles safely boost blood and energy flow to assuage pain and enhance internal functions, such as the digestive process that turns blue cotton candy back into blueberries. A licensed massage therapist with more than 35 years of kneading experience aims soothing strokes at pent-up aches, tension, and knots. Honed over 2,000 years, homeopathy mediates bodily discordances with diluted doses of irritants, such as a naturally derived onion substance that wards off watery eyes or a pulverized Cupid's arrow that heals heartbroken clients.
The Muscle Repair Shop takes a two-pronged approach to preventing chronic pain: treatment and education. Through deep-tissue massages, strength training, and active isolated stretching—stretches held for two–three seconds that enhance range of motion—highly trained staff members can sap tension from ailing physiques. They go beyond these services, however, to tutor clients on muscle function and popular misconceptions, such as the belief that biceps should be watered weekly. By outlining anatomical facts, they hope to prevent guests from seeking needless medical treatments or surgeries. In conjunction with muscular enlightenment, healthy recipes from registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator Susan Phelps guide bodies toward holistic wellness.
