Anti-Aging Medicine at Ology Spa in Indianapolis

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

Anti-aging Medicine is often an enigma to the public.  It sounds appealing and of interest but what is it? The marketing hype that surrounds the anti-aging medicine concept makes it difficult to understand how it applies to any everyday person. Anti-aging is a subspecialty of medicine that in no way should be confused with Geriatric Medicine. In fact, Anti-Aging Medicine strives to maintain and energize one’s health so that the affirmities of age can be delay for some time and maybe avoided for the most part.

Anti-Aging Medicine is a relatively new medical specialty for the prevention, treatment, and reversal of health problems caused by both age and disease. Even in the face of continuing aging or ongoing disease, the main goal of Anti-Aging Medicine is to help one feel better by improving how your body functions. The emphasis is on treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.

Anti-Aging Medicine treats a wide variety of aging health problems including menopause, andropause (male menopause), depression, sexual dysfunction, fatigue, insomnia, and weight disorders.

Each patient’s evaluation is individualized and extensive leading to a personalized treatment plan at Ology Spa. Through established medical principles and ongoing body chemistry assessments, the program consists of proper nutrition, physical exercise and  fitness, biologically identical hormone therapies, and pharmaceutical-grade neutraceuticals (vitamins, amino acids, minerals, antioxidants, and herbs). Through this program, the goals are to look and feel younger, maintain ideal body weight, improve sleep patterns, restore intimacy and sexual function, eliminate anxiety and depression,  and increase energy,  muscle mass, and strength.

Medical History in Plastic Surgery at IU Health West Hospital

Joint Gynecological and Plastic Surgery makes Medical History at IU Health West Hospital with Dr Barry Eppley

Plastic Surgery is commonly performed as the reconstructive part of an operation with many surgical disciplines from General Surgery, Urology, Pediatric Surgery, Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery as well as Obstetrics and Gynecology. It is rare, however, that cosmetic plastic surgery is done at the same time, on a different part of the body, with other surgical disciplines.

Such was the case on December 19, 2007 at IU Health West Hospital in Avon, Indiana. A 45 year-old female underwent a combined Gynecologic and Plastic Surgery operation. Dr. Kelly Kasper of IU Ob-Gyn performed a laparoscopic hysterectomy. During the one hour that it took her to complete the procedure, Dr Barry Eppley performed cosmetic surgery of the eyelids including removing excess skin and fat and tightening of the lower eyelids with a chemical peel. (lower eyelid lift) Both Gynecologic and Plastic Surgery were done at the same time in a one hour time period.

While neither operation is unusual, performing both at the same time is and, in my experience, has never been done at the same time before. Such coordination between surgeons allows wonderful benefits to be gained by patients in a cost-effective manner.

Plastic Surgery and Spa Services at IU Health West Hospital

The Synergy of Plastic Surgery and Ology Spa Services at IU Health West Hospital In Avon, Indiana

Since 2004, I have opened and operated the initial location of the Ology Spa and my plastic surgery practice at the beautiful IU Health West Hospital in Avon, Indiana on the westside of Indianapolis. Because of its magnificent design and very unique and tranquil setting, it is worth saying a few words about IU Health WEst.

Located on Indianapolis’ quiet west side, IU Health West Hospitak is a full-service 86-bed community-based hospital rooted in the history of excellence established by the IU Health hospital systems. IIU Health West Hospital offers a full range of patient care services – all delivered in their extraordinary Sanctuary of Healing environment designed to exceed patient’s expectations of the typical hospital experience. It is a health care environment unlike any that I have seen before, a true merger of outstanding caregivers, state-of-the-art medical technology, and the soothing qualities of a natural and organic environment. IU Health West is build around a central submerged garden which is filled with plants, trees and stone indigenous to the state of Indiana. The interior of the hospital is very soothing lined with natural slate, wood, and limestone. Just upon entering, you already feel relaxed and comforted and you quickly realize this is not a ‘typical’ hospital. IU Health West has even launched a new program that is perfectly in union with its design and philosophy, The Integrative Medicine Center, offering alternative healing therapies. Reconstructive Plastic Surgery is most evident at IU Health West as part of the Breast Center for breast reconstruction and general plastic surgery problems.

The design of IU Health West and my Ology Spa facilities could not be more in synch. Ology spa’s design incorporates natural elements, such as bamboo flooring, water fountains, and organic colors. The facility has ample space for spa treatment rooms, offering massage and medical skin care, as well as plastic surgery space for consultation and in-office treatments. Having both concepts in one facility, spa and plastic surgery, allows medical and cosmetic procedures to be done in a single location, enables a comprehensive approach to guest treatments before and after procedures, and allows higher-grade, more therapeutic skin and body product offerings.
