When you walk into Tampa Surgical Arts, there is soft music playing, calming aromas and restful furniture — not the typical sterile environment found in a traditional facial and cosmetic surgeon’s office.
Making sure his patients feel relaxed and comfortable is a priority for Dr. Manik Bedi, owner of Tampa Surgical Arts, and facial and cosmetic surgery center in Odessa.
“I always put myself in the client’s shoes. If I were to go into an office to get a procedure, I would want to feel comfortable every step of the way,” says Dr. Bedi.
Dr. Bedi has impressive credentials, and is one of few triple-board-certified surgeons in the greater Tampa area. He has a medical degree, and an oral and maxillofacial surgery certificate, from the University of Florida, earned a doctor of dental surgery from New York University, and was awarded a cosmetic surgery certificate from Tulsa Surgical Arts in Oklahoma.
Dr. Bedi is proud to offer patients a private surgical center, which is one of the area’s only accredited facilities. He offers a wide range of procedures, including smile makeovers with dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, eyelid surgery, ear pinning, facial implants, medical spa treatment, facelift, liposculpture and Brazilian Butt Lift.
Patients begin their visit in a private room with a treatment coordinator to talk about the procedures they are interested in. Then, Dr. Bedi comes in and spends time learning about their goals, and why they are considering facial cosmetic surgery. Together, they discuss the benefits and risks associated with the procedure, and then Dr. Bedi develops a comprehensive treatment plan that explains what happens before, during and after surgery.
A misconception some people have of cosmetic surgery is that it can look overdone or fake. Dr. Bedi assures patients that his surgeries always result in a natural look that enhances their original beauty.
Cosmetic and facial procedures give patients an instant boost of confidence, and this change in self-perception is one of the most rewarding parts of Dr. Bedi’s job.
“I love that I have the ability to change people’s lives and help them regain the confidence they once had, by achieving a desired look they never thought they could achieve,” says Dr. Bedi.
A unique feature you’ll find at Tampa Surgical Arts is that right after surgery, patients wake up to a delicious smoothie made just for them.
