Weight Loss Surgery
Beauty & Wellness Medical Center
So far we have four clinics under our administration. In three of them you will feel like you are in a hotel, and in one clinic patients receive more individual attention for unique cases. As each patient is different, we treat you based on your specific needs and expectations. This is why it is essential for us to know your physical condition, medical condition, and medical history. Based on this information we will be able to determine which of our clinics is the best match to meet your personal needs.
The most common procedures that our patients go through are breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck, liposuction, facelift, brow lift, weight loss surgery (gastric bypass, gastric sleeve), joint replacement (hip replacement, knee replacement, etc.), etc.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us, so that our warm and friendly staff can answer all of your questions.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it last?
Microblading can last up to 2 years. micro shading can last up to 5 years and Ombre Lips can last up to 18 months. As it is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure, touch ups and color boosts are highly recommended to keep your brows and lips looking perfect. Please note that following after care instructions properly has a huge impact on your retention. Everybody retains pigment differently. Some clients may require more maintenance. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that one may benefit more than another as this is an ART, not a science. Factors that will cause your micropigment to fade more rapidly: Sun exposure Smoking Exfoliant around the brows and lips Salt water Strong immune systems
Will I still have to fill in my brows or wear lipstick?
permanent makeup does not completely take away the need to fill in your eyebrows or wear lipstick. it gives you brows an outline and a template to work with. lipstick is needed when you want a different color than your pigment. lipgloss is always recommend for your lips. "Gloss and go!"
How long does the procedure take?
Expect your initial session to take around 2-3 hours. The consultation is a part of your appointment. After filling out paperwork, I will numb you, then we consult, and map and outline your perfect shape.
How bad does it hurt?
The pain is very tolerable. Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. You will be given an anesthesia to numb the area that will greatly reduce the pain. It is slightly uncomfortable but totally worth it!
How do you choose my shape and color?
I find your perfect shape, size and placement by taking careful measurements and placing an outline exactly where the brows or lips will be micropigmented- which also gives you an idea of what the shape will look like. Your color is chosen by your existing natural brow hair, and your skin tone for brows and for lips its based on your desired result and skin tone.
