TODD A. BESNOFF, M.D.
When he was 13 years old, Dr. Todd Besnoff found out on his school’s career day that he had the stomach for, well, stomach surgery. “I chose to go to surgery during my school’s career day and loved watching the abdominal surgeries,” he says. “I found that fascinating.”
Now, as one of the Tampa Bay area’s top cosmetic physicians, Dr. Besnoff has performed thousands of surgical procedures in plastic surgery, gynecology, tissue donation and life-saving emergency treatments. In fact, he has performed more BOTOX® / Dysport® treatments in Tampa Bay than any other provider. “I chose this line of medicine because of my ability to work well with my hands during medical procedures and my desire to make patients feel happy about themselves.” he says.
Dr. Besnoff was recently certified to administer Kybella® injections, which is a drug that, once injected, dissolves the fat under the chin. He also uses ThermiTightTM which administers radiofrequency to heat the skin under the neck to help tighten that area. Additionally Dr. Besnoff’s team has the proper non-invasive treatment for bags under the eyes (PRP Micro-Needling, Thermi™ or Fraxel® Laser).
Dr. Besnoff also offers BOTOX® and Dysport®, dermal fillers, and weight loss procedures such as THERMITIGHT liposuction, VerjúTM and Liposonix®. “Cosmetic medicine is really a form of psychological medicine,” he says. “We help patients have a better outlook on themselves, which allows them to have a more positive and productive outlook on life. The most rewarding part of the day is when a patient can view his or her before-and-after pictures and see the improvement our treatment had on his or her beauty. Even more rewarding, as a doctor, is knowing that I am making a positive difference in the life of my patients.”
Dr. Besnoff is a single dad of two and enjoys family games, dressing up with his kids at Cosplay events and outdoor activities such as beach games, tennis and golf.
