Marina Plastic Surgery Says the Fountain of Youth Is Bubbling Over
One thing remains constant. Whatever the economy, people want to look their best. No dreary weather forecast dissuades thirsty consumers from taking a trip to the fountain of youth.
"Our appearance is something we have control over. Unlike dealing with an uncertain economy, people are empowered when they can control and change their own looks for the better," says Grant Stevens, MD, FACS, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder and medical director of Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina del Rey, CA. "Looking in the mirror and liking what you see, focuses you on the positive and uplifts your day and general wellbeing," adds Stevens. "That alone is the beginning of a changing world - starting with you."
So it's no wonder business is doing so well, as evidenced by a busy multi-faceted practice that includes plastic and reconstructive surgery, clinical and cosmetic skincare, non-surgical body shaping, as well as a flourishing medical spa. In fact, in the past 27 years, Dr. Stevens and his team have treated patients from all 50 states and more than 63 countries worldwide.
With this steady growth and the surge of male clientele, Dr. Stevens is expanding the practice to include a dedicated Gentlemen's Club of sorts. Known as "Marina Manland," this area will be exclusive for men who want treatments with a dash of dapper. Man cave ambiance will feature sports memorabilia, masculine mementos, fishing souvenirs and fast cars. Since a man often wears his resume on his face, more and more guys want to look younger, more rested and confident. Women also want their men to maintain their good looks. "Men are looking for the fountain of youth, too," Dr. Stevens says.
"There's an 'appearance budget' for anyone who comes to Marina Plastic Surgery ... and even an affordable medical facial leaves you glowing," says Cory Felber, PA-C. "My patients want to look and feel their best in any economic situation."
For aestheticians Ann Yacullo, Rachael Martinez and Paulette McNeely, spring months are a particularly busy time for facial peels and permanent makeup. Women like to swim and emerge from the water fresh and beautiful, as they can with these procedures. At Marina Plastic Surgery, the aestheticians apply natural looking permanent makeup to the lips, eyes and brows that looks flawless, freshly applied and lasts 24 hours a day, every day.
Dr. Stevens says, "Rather than invest in a risky market, my patients want to invest in a sure thing - themselves. Looking your best does make you feel better and more confident. My patients tell me that their lives are more satisfying following surgery, since they feel better about themselves. That often results in a more positive and fulfilling life. Doing something gratifying for yourself will lighten your worries and refocus you on the positive. That's powerful."
Marina Plastic Surgery offers both surgical and non-surgical body contouring procedures. The surgeons and staff are known for customizing each treatment plan to address the individual patient's concerns and desired outcome.
