Dr. Thomas Su is the creator of the new and innovative STARS Liposuction Technique—Sculpting Toned ARms and Shoulders.

Having a Fine Arts degree and a background as an artist prior to attending medical school, Dr. Su has a unique perspective in sculpting the human body through liposuction. Dr. Su uses his skills as a human fiure artist and as an experienced cosmetic surgeon to take a portion of the human figure, visualize the beauty within, and transform it into a living work of art.

His new STARS method for sculpting lean shapely arms and shoulders while revealing underlying muscle definition achieves stunning new results that cannot be achieved with any traditional methods of cosmetic surgery. Visit ArtisticLipo HERE.



Steps from the bustle of Bay to Bay in South Tampa, stylists design brilliant cuts and dramatic coloring treatments. Estheticians rejuvenate complexions with revolutionary skincare products. Massage therapists use techniques that restore balance and soothe the spirit.

Sip a glass of wine imported from France or enjoy a cappuccino while you await your transformation. At Paris Salon and Day Spa, it’s all about you.

When Ash Elalem and his wife Manal designed this retreat, they agreed to make it a completely client-centered environment. The building was painted a soft yellow with sprawling ivy, invoking images of the French countryside. Every tiny accoutrement was meticulously planned. From the plush robes to the healthy spa snacks, the only thing missing for a true Parisian spa theme was the River Sienne.

A one-of-a-kind “Soak in the Sea” hydrotherapy service replaces it, delighting clients with infusions of marine ingredients and light massage. Truly, attention to pampering detail is what our staff does best. We share a passion for perfection and often travel to attend conferences and continuing education seminars.

Now that you’re here, peruse our menu. Choose to spend “A Day in Paris” or luxuriate with an Appletini Salt Scrub. Ask us to help you develop a wedding or corporate package – we’ll even close the spa for you. No matter the service, the result is pure indulgence. “I want every client to feel completely pampered while they’re here, and overwhelmingly beautiful when they leave,” Ash says.

Our resident design specialist and owner, George Lufriu, will help you create your dream home! George comes from a long lineage of Tampa natives, and since the late 1880’s, the Lufriu family has made their name as craftsmen, carpenters, and pool builders. Following in the well-beaten path of his forefathers, George started in the pool building business, however, seeking to find his own direction George discovered the tile business, where his talent has blossomed. After his first job was featured in Home and Garden Magazine, George took a large and prestigious account in Harbor Island. Before he knew it, he had two full-time crews laying tile, on top of a pool construction business that was in full swing. Not a bad start, considering he was only 19 years old!

His career has been highlighted with accomplishments like the period he spent traveling to colleges to instruct on marble, tile, and glass mosaic installation; working on Eric Clapton’s bungalow in Antigua; and, after a crash-course in granite, working for Triton Ship Works putting elegant touches in some of the world’s most exclusive yachts. In 1995 George Lufriu built his first outlet store, selling products and offering installation tips and techniques, and he and his wife, April, have been working hard to provide excellent service across the Tampa Bay area.
