A New Year, A New You

Happy New Year! At Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, we believe in New Year’s resolutions, but only the ones that are easy to keep. Goals or transformations that will bring about lasting change and improve your life. Maybe something like facial rejuvenation. In fact, if you’ve been contemplating a cosmetic procedure, 2014 is an ideal time to bite the bullet and debut a new you. Surgical and non-surgical procedures are growing in popularity and are more affordable than ever!

So, if you’re thinking that your skin isn’t looking as perky as it did last year, why not book an appointment with an expert within Beautologie’s Medical Aesthetic Department for a photo facial, laser skin resurfacing, or chemical peel? Our aesthetic technicians are known to work miracles with something as non-invasive as our superior grade skin care line. And if you’re feeling as if your wrinkles are a little deeper than they used to be, maybe it’s time to think about a consultation with one of our Medical Aesthetic professionals to discuss how BOTOX© Cosmetic and dermal fillers such as Restylane©, Juvederm© and ArteFill© can help smooth out the grooves that may have you looking a little older than you feel.

Don’t worry if your issues go deeper than some brown spots and crow’s feet. All of the doctors at our three locations; Bakersfield, Fresno and Malibu are trained in the very latest cosmetic surgery techniques…. techniques that can tighten and lift your sagging upper lids (an upper blepharoplasty) and remove the fat pads on your lower lids (a lower blepharoplasty) that seem to sprout up overnight, making you feel older and appear more tired than you’d like. If your problem area of concern is a sagging neck, no worries. We can lift it back to its former glory. And if the whole face needs some tender loving care, we practice any number of facelift techniques and will work with you to determine the exact procedure that best suits your needs and your lifestyle. All without any of your friends, family members or colleagues being the wiser… that is, unless you want them to be. So really, what are you waiting for? This year, why not treat yourself to a resolution that’ll last a lifetime? You are only a consultation away from a fresh start to 2014!

INTRODUCING DR. NICHOLAS VENDEMIA

With the Grand Re-opening of Beautologie Malibu, a new face also emerged, along with a new office. Dr. Nicholas Vendemia is the newest cosmetic surgeon to join the team of expert surgeons! Dr. Vendemia is a fellowship-trained Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon specializing in surgeries of the face, eyes, nose, neck, breast and body.

A former champion wrestler and body builder, Dr. V, as patients call him, began his career as a fitness specialist. He attended The Pennsylvania State University at University Park where he graduated in the top 0.1 percent in his class, and earned several degrees in Pre Medicine, Biochemistry, Biology and Fine Arts. Dr. Vendemia was awarded his medical degree by the Temple University School in Philadelphia where he was elected a lifelong member of the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.

Dr. V completed his Ivy League Internship and Residency in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at the esteemed New York Hospital- Weill Cornell Medical Center, which is consistently rated the Top Hospital in New York, and one of the Top 5 Hospitals nationwide.

When asked what made Dr. Vendemia go in the direction of plastic surgery, he replied that he has a strong background in the Arts, and studied it quite a bit in high school and college and he quickly discovered that he wanted to do something more creative and more artistic.  He soon discovered plastic surgery and fell in love with everything a Plastic & Reconstructive surgeon can do. Dr. V says “It’s a true fusion of Art and Science, which are two of my strongest passions in life.”
