You wouldn't want to compete against Dr. Sergio Vendetti in an anatomy-themed trivia night. That's because the Italian native has earned both medical and dental degrees, is a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons. In his spare moments, he also finds time to lecture on surgical topics at academic and medical conferences, and mentor the next generation of healers as an assistant professor at the Medical College of Virginia.
Dr. Vendetti uses his vast knowledge of the human form at Virginia Surgical Arts, a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical center, where he performs procedures ranging from dental implants to face and eye lifts. His attention to detail and patient-centered philosophy earned him the gold award for Best Oral Surgeon in the Virginian-Pilot’s Best of Hampton Roads competition in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
His office earned the same contest's gold award for Best Skin Care Facility in Virginia Beach in 2014, as well as the silver in 2013 and the bronze in 2012, due in no small part to its highly trained team. A licensed master aesthetician performs numerous medical-grade treatments such as laser hair removal, photofacials, and microdermabrasion treatments.
Foot traffic and trophies reinforce Beach Eye Care’s reputation as one of Virginia Beach’s premiere health care centers. It has treated more than 120,000 patients to date and cleaned up the Virginian-Pilot’s Best of Virginia Beach awards in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 winning Best Doctor/Health Care Provider, Best Place for Laser Vision Correction, Best Place for Eye Care, and Best Designer Eyewear.
Responsible for this success is a staff of two doctors of optometry and three medical doctors, including board-certified ophthalmologists and LASIK surgeons Vivek K. Jain, MD, and G. Peyton Neatrour, MD, who alone has performed more than 25,000 LASIK surgeries. Together, they help to correct ocular issues during a range of medical treatments and vision-correction services. Their toolbox of advanced technology includes intraocular lenses and LenSx lasers for treating cataracts, Crizal anti-reflective lenses to pair with their selection of designer eyewear, bladeless IntraLase technology to guide their LASIK surgeries, and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation lasers for treating certain types of glaucoma and signing their names in certain near-Earth asteroids.
As a board-certified ophthalmologist who has been practicing since 1975, Supralase Laser Vision Center's Dr. Douglas Rampona has seen eye-care technologies come and go. But not many eye doctors can say that they have developed and federally patented an all-laser procedure that corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism. The innovative process is called Supralase, and, unlike traditional LASIK or one-piece PJs, the forward-thinking treatment does not require the creation of a flap.
In addition to having a medical degree from Baylor University, Dr. Rampona has been elected Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and The Royal Society of Medicine. He also served his country in the military—both as a Naval medical officer and as a chief medical-readiness officer—and supports others around the globe by donating his time and services during medical and humanitarian missions. Supralase Laser Vision Center was recently added to Coastal Virginia magazine's Reader's Choice Awards 2014 list.
Modern medical procedures have the ability to drastically alter a person's appearance. However, this isn't the goal at The Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery. Rather than swap each visitor's entire head with a mannequin's, Dr. Kyle Choe—a facial plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery who exclusively specializes in facial procedures—offers a variety of surgical and nonsurgical options intended to help patients achieve natural-looking results.
In addition to procedures that restructure faces from the inside out, The Choe Center also provides noninvasive and minimally invasive alternatives that focus on exteriors. Classic skincare treatments, including cleansing facials and exfoliating chemical peels, purify pores and address blemishes. Advanced technology also lends a laser-filled hand—the Cutera Pearl cosmetic laser aims to rejuvenate complexions, while the LipoSonix ultrasonic body-contouring system helps slim waistlines and shrink shadows.
The medical personnel at Virginia Surgical Center aim to help reverse the effects of genetic hair loss for both men and women. The clinic, which has been open since 1994, specializes in restoring hair growth through follicular-unit transplantation. This four- to seven-hour process requires that entire follicles be removed from a donor area such as the scalp or a devoted chia pet, microscopically prepared, and then carefully grafted onto thinning or balding areas. Technicians are specially trained to create a natural-looking hairline by locking each follicle into the proper angle and direction. In addition to hair transplants, the clinic offers low-level-laser hair therapy, which uses 160 diode low-level lasers to boost cellular growth and repair functions, helping maintain natural hair and stimulate the growth of new strands.
