Unique to Embodiment MedSpa is that we have a board certified plastic surgeon on site. Med Spas are gaining in popularity and must have a medical director in place but that does not mean that the physician has to specialize in plastic surgery or that the doctor directly works out of the office. Many physicians boast the they are board certified cosmetic surgeons but please realize that there is no cosmetic surgery board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
