Endless Possibilities 
Women and men of all ages envelop the myriad of options at Metropolitan Plastic Surgery and Medispa to help them look and feel younger, healthier and revitalized. 

by Staff

Dr. Julia Spears, who is one of the area’s few female plastic surgeons, founded Metropolitan Plastic Surgery and Medispa in 2018. The state-of-the art facility is located in Marlton where Dr. Spears and her team pride themselves on delivering high-quality, personalized services.

“It’s important to me to connect with my patients and to be customized in my approach to their wants and needs,” says Dr. Spears. Educating her patients on all the options available to them is very important to Dr. Spears, as is making them feel comfortable enough to ask questions and to seek all the information they feel they need to move forward with procedures and treatments. 

Aesthetic treatments are becoming more accessible and acceptable than ever as more people understand what’s available to them and how such treatments can help them look and feel better. “People get ideas from social media, which is making aesthetics and plastic surgery more and more popular these days,” Dr. Spears says. 

Despite that rise in popularity, Dr. Spears is careful to keep her main objective a priority—to make people look younger and feel revitalized without going too far, as can be the case with celebrities these days. “I don’t want to be the plastic surgeon whose patients you see across the room and you say, ‘Oh my God, they overdid it,’” she says.  

Metropolitan Plastic Surgery and Medispa combines the art, beauty and science of plastic surgery with a focus on aesthetic medicine. A popular procedure these days is the process of fat transfer—relocating unwanted fat from one part of the body such as the belly or thighs to the face or breasts to add volume or fullness. Fat transfer typically reduces healing time since one’s own body fat is being used and can be done as an outpatient procedure. 

What’s more, “breast reductions and lifts still remain very popular, life-changing procedures among younger female patients,” says Dr. Spears. “Afterward patients exercise better, wear normal clothes and bras, and do not experience pain.” 

Other popular treatments include the Brachioplasty procedure, which removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms, between the armpit and the elbow, and creates real transformations of the arms. Liposuction-treated areas of the body look slimmer and more contoured, and in better overall proportion to the rest of the body.  

Feel-good yet effective treatments, such as the HydraFacial, which is customizable to all skin types, rejuvenate and protect the health of skin while providing immediate results and long-term benefits without downtime or irritation.

From plastic surgery to medical spa treatments, the possibilities are endless. From Brazilian butt lifts, ear lobe repair, chin lifts, Botox, fillers, IPL to laser treatments and more; patients will find a knowledgeable, experienced team at Metropolitan Plastic Surgery and Medispa as well as a feeling that they are in the more than capable and compassionate hands of a caring doctor and her team.

Furthermore, plastic surgery is not for “ladies only,” according to Dr. Spears. “Men are now interested in it as well. They are mostly focusing on their stomach, chest and extra neck skin,” she says, while noting that plastic surgery and aesthetic treatments are accessible to anyone who wants to look in the mirror and be happy with what they see. 

All in all, Dr. Spears stresses the importance of managing her patients’ expectations. While one can choose to do whatever they like, she prefers to guide patients and to educate them about what can be done within reason.

“But there are so many ways you can get your body to looking the way you want and feeling good about yourself again,” she says.
