The Perfect Wedding Dress—after Liposuction

Lisa had finally found the perfect dress for wedding day. Unfortunately it just didn’t fit correctly. With just a few months before the wedding, Lisa found it hard to lose the necessary weight for a better fit and bought a “back-up” dress.

“I wanted to get back into the gym and eat right,” she explains, “but it’s hard to get rid of old habits.” Lisa had started eating out more as she was dating her fiancé. An elementary school teacher, Lisa had also just switched to a new district and felt she needed to give “above and beyond” to make a good impression. There was hardly time for the gym between long hours at her new job and picking up her 9-year-old from school (it would be her second marriage).

ESANA’s Guilford Location is an Exciting New Option

As ESANA Plastic Surgery and MedSpa prepares to expand with the opening of a Guilford location, Dr. Pan and Dr. Davila reflect on what makes ESANA different and successful. Dr. Davila shared, “very few medspas are run by two fully trained and board-certified plastic surgeons.

CoolSculpting vs. the Tummy Tuck

You diet, you walk, you run – you may even do nightly crunches, but stubborn belly fat often seems impossible to reduce. “People find they lose subcutaneous fat more easily in the upper body, while belly fat remains,” says Dr. Davila, “a problem that only worsens through your 30’s, 40’s and beyond despite maintaining the same level of physical activity and dietary habits.”

Day Spas vs. MedSpas: What’s the Big Difference?

Everyone likes a day at the spa. Being named ESANA Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, we have heard the question ‘”What is a medspa?” more than once.

A medspa (or medical spa) is a facility with the capability of performing medical grade aesthetic treatments under the direction of a doctor, or in our case, two board certified plastic surgeons. Although both spas and medspas can be a relaxing experience, many people choose medspas because they provide treatments targeted to specific issues or concerns. Popular skin services at ESANA Medspa, that you won’t find in a regular spa, include microneedling, medical facials, and advanced peels or microdermabrasion. Body treatments include laser hair removal, CoolSculpting and Ultherapy.
