In Arizona, Phoenix plastic surgery developed in the form of extravagant, luxurious spas that catered to those clients interested in anything from hair removal to liposuction. A Phoenix plastic surgeon may use many different techniques at these spas. Both locals and tourists flock to these spas, which also offer intense weight loss facilities, which incorporate a strict diet and extreme exercise. Such a diet and exercise were accompanied by relaxing massages and specially formulated baths, which combine heat, water, and occasionally mud. Later, spas like these developed the facilities and professionals to provide cosmetic surgery. Spas offered retreats to clients, allowing them to undergo the procedure and stay. Rather than recuperating in a more stressful home or work environment, the client relaxes in the spa until they have fully recuperated. Many procedures require anesthetic and a team of medical professionals to be done safely. Therefore, the recuperation process is lengthy and better served in a safe, stress-free environment, where the client can be easily monitored by medical personnel. In many spas, even minor treatments, like Botox, can add up to the same length of stay as more dangerous and extensive procedures. A sparse desert environment, these spas’ surrounding areas provide solitude and serenity for the recovery process.
