Waleed Elyaman, M.D.

Founder & Medical Director

Dr. Waleed Elyaman is the Founder and Medical Director of Innova Wellness Spa. He was born in West Palm Beach, FL, the third of fifteen children. Originally board certified in Family Medicine and Palliative Care, Dr. Elyaman discovered his true passion in aesthetics, a unique field of medicine, where artistry and science intersect. Dr. Elyaman received aesthetic training from the Ageless Institute of Fort Lauderdale. He personally researches and evaluates every procedure, treatment method, and spa service to ensure quality and optimal results before allowing them to be introduced to our practice. Dr. Elyaman is currently one of the only physicians in Central Florida trained and certified directly by Dr. Yan Trokel to perform the Y-Lift®, a highly advanced, minimally invasive facial contouring procedure which accentuates the cheekbones, defines the jawline, and lifts the upper neck. Dr. Elyaman’s quest for excellence also led him to train with Dr. Charles Runels, the world-renowned inventor of the Vampire Facelift®, Vampire Facial®, Vampire Breast Lift®, P-Shot®, and O-Shot®. Dr. Elyaman and his family reside in Marion County. When he isn’t caring for patients, learning new techniques or teaching aesthetic procedures, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, fishing, hiking, and beekeeping.
