Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS, and his team will celebrate the Grand Opening of their new office serving North-Central Brevard County and Orlando area patients
Merritt Island, Fla. – While many industries experienced a decline during the pandemic, 2020 was a year full of surprises for aesthetic medicine providers. “Elective surgery procedures were put on hold for six weeks last year, and we had no idea what would happen when we reopened our doors,” says Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS, facial plastic surgeon and founder of Clevens Face and Body Specialists. “And wow! Were we ever amazed and so very grateful for what happened next.”
With so many people working from home, spending hours looking at themselves on Zoom calls and having extra disposable income, demand for plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments is off the charts. “We have grown more in the past year than any other year I have been in practice,” says Dr. Clevens, who just celebrated the 25th anniversary of starting his Central Florida plastic surgery group and medispa. “Patients who have dreamed of having a procedure for years are finally moving forward because they have the ability to recover privately while working from home.”
The “Zoom Effect” also has brought in first-time cosmetic patients. “So many of my consultations start with, ‘I saw myself in a Zoom meeting and can’t believe that’s how I look!’” Clevens says, adding the most requested procedures are Botox, lip filler, and neck lifts.
Clevens and his team have operated an office in the Merritt Island area for years. Now, they are scaling up to serve the growing number of new patients by adding providers and opening a new, larger Merritt Island office. “Our new location has more treatment rooms, twice the square footage and more parking,” Clevens says. Conveniently located at 450 E Merritt Island Causeway (SR-520) in Suite #100, the new office is staffed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to better serve patients from north-central Brevard County as well as the Orlando area.
At the new Merritt Island office, patients can choose from a variety of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments to be performed, including Botox, dermal fillers, lip injections, Qwo cellulite treatment and liquid rhinoplasty, as well as chemical peels and anti-aging facials. Dr. Clevens’ Signature Skin Care Collection of medical-grade products is available along with complimentary skincare consultations with a licensed medical aesthetician. The team’s CoolSculpting ELITE experts perform nonsurgical fat reduction treatments and CoolTone muscle tightening daily, as well as evenings and weekends upon request. Dr. Clevens and his associate Renata Khelemsky, MD both offer on-site consultations and post-operative care for their facial plastic surgery patients.
Clevens Face and Body Specialists will host a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the new Merritt Island location on Thursday, August 26 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Guests will enjoy wine and small bites, tours of the new office, introductory specials and fabulous giveaways. Drs. Clevens and Khelemsky will be on hand, as well as new team members: Cosmetic Surgeon Ahmed Ibrahim, MD; Facial Plastic Surgery Fellow Phillip Barbee, MD, Master Injector and Laser Specialist Samira Caraballo, PA-C and Medical Aesthetician Christina Smith, LME.
