The Wall Center among SB Magazine’s Best of the Region
Jan 14, 2008 – For more than three decades, The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery has been the premier center for cosmetic surgery in the region. In 2008, The Wall Center will be getting its own Extreme Makeover. Soon, The Wall Center will be breaking ground on a state-of-the-art facility that anyone would be surprised to see- and the best part is that it will be right here in our city. The Wall Center will be conveniently located on Fern Avenue, just across the street from its current location on Bert Kouns.
Coming in for a new patient consultation can be an anxiety-provoking encounter, so the new Wall Center will feature a discreet cosmetic surgery clinic with private consultation rooms, purposefully designed for patient comfort and relaxation. Dr. Holly Wall, one of three board-certified Plastic Surgeons at The Wall Center adds, “It’s important to make people feel comfortable. Our new consultation rooms are designed to be more like a cozy sitting room than a typical exam room.” In addition to the relaxed atmosphere of the new office, it will be easier than ever to view several examples of actual patients’ before & after pictures with interactive video displays in the consultation rooms. Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr, adds, “We like people to have a good idea of what to expect from surgery. The next best thing to seeing how a procedure will change your appearance is to see how it looks on someone who has similar anatomy. Looking at actual patients’ before & after pictures is probably the best way to ensure that someone has realistic expectations about cosmetic surgery.”
The two new surgical suites will be State and Medicare-certified, providing the highest level of accreditation for ambulatory surgical facilities. In addition to the new clinic and surgical suites, The Wall Center will expand upon its full-service Medispa. Dr. Simeon Wall, Sr, The Wall Center’s founding partner, adds, “In the last five years, we have seen the demand for non-invasive procedures increase tremendously, and we want to stay at the forefront of providing these services. Since we offer everything from injectables to lasers to surgery, our patients can trust us to offer them exactly what they need, and only offer what works.”
Known for bringing the best and newest technology to our area, The Wall Center was the first to offer the Fraxel laser for skin resurfacing, which has been all the rage among patients for its ability to deliver great results with very short down-time. The Wall Center also provides a high-speed hair removal laser, as well as lasers for the removal of spider veins and skin discolorations. Twylla Seaman, RN, The Wall Center’s aesthetic nurse, adds, “We have been very pleased with the results from the tattoo removal laser we are using now. What used to take ten to 15 treatments to remove a tattoo now takes closer to five.”
Although the medispa is busy with laser treatments, Seaman states that the majority of her patients come in for wrinkle-filling injectables and Botox. “One of our newer injectables for deeper lines is Perlane, and we are the first in the state to offer Artefill for long-term correction of deep wrinkles.”
The medispa also offers prescription skin care products and multiple levels of chemical peels to let beautiful skin shine and look its best.
One of the most exciting prospects for The Wall Center’s new Fern Avenue complex is the plan for a bed & breakfast inn, which should be an added source of comfort and privacy for both in- and out-of-town guests. Many patients travel from across the country to have surgery here, Why? Because of the results.
The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery is a family of cosmetic surgeons who treat their patients like family. All of their physicians are Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons and active members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Simeon Sr, Holly, and Simeon Jr have all been named “Top Plastic Surgeons” by the Consumers Research Council for several years running.
Despite their busy schedules, philanthropy is important to this group. “I do think it is important to use your skills helping those less fortunate, no matter what your profession. Simeon (Jr) and I just got back from Xi’an, where we operated on 65 babies, mostly orphans, with cleft lips and palates,” Wall said. “I am certain that we gained more from that powerful experience than the babies, but also hope that it helped give them a chance at adoption and a normal life.”
They have also volunteered their services in Other parts of the globe.
