A Love Story for an entire community is unusual.  Yet, the Sarasota area, the place and its people, captured the hearts of Dr. Orlando Cicilioni and his wife Lori.  The Longboat Key News recently told much of that story.  And it really is a story of love.  It is a love story about a special place where they are making dreams come true.

Love means more than Valentines. It's a community commitment at Altiora.

It’s True Love:  Here’s the Altiora Plastic Surgery and Medspa Love Story with a family, a place and a community commitment.

Love Story with Perfect Lifestyle

We thought our blog readers might also find a few thoughts about our new home interesting.  So, you see, this blog article might be a little more local.  And a little more personal in flavor, than most of our blogs.

And with Valentine’s month just around the corner, it seems totally appropriate, since it is about love:  the love of family, love of a man for his profession, the love of beauty, peace and community.  So let’s start at the beginning…

The article points out that Dr. Cicilioni, a board-certified plastic surgeon, “chaired the plastic surgery department for Florida Hospital’s seven campuses.”  The Longboat Key News points out that it’s not unusual to see physicians like Dr. Cicilioni retire here on Longboat Key.  But, the Dr. Orlando Cicilioni’s relocation was not about retirement, far from it.

Retirement was not his dream.  His dream was to live and grow and raise his children here in the present.  It was not to wait until retirement.  His dream involved living in a healthy environment while he continued to work in his art and science of plastic surgery.

Likewise, He and Lori also shared the cherished dream of raising their five children with the advantages of the art, culture and natural beauty of Florida’s culture coast.

Chapters from Dr. Cicilioni’s Altiora Dream

Thus it is that, after 19 years of success in Orlando, Dr. Orlando Cicilioni has relocated with his family, to Longboat Key.  It is here that he has opened Altiora Plastic Surgery and Medspa in St. Armands Circle.

Love at the edge of pristine nature in Sarasota shows you can be urban and beachy at the same time.

If you don’t live near us, we hope you love your city and surrounding area Altiora loves the entire Sarasota area.

The move to the Sarasota area was the direct result of the love they felt for the “geographical beauty, strong cultural amenities and a dedicated and highly rated school system.”

The Longboat Lee News reports that Cicilionis fell in love with the area and the people years ago.  This was during vacations at the legendary Colony Beach and Tennis Resort.

The resort with its tennis courts and beaches has passed into bygone history.  However, the beauty, charm and culture of Sarasota still remains.   The free spirit of the sea and sky, quiet walks on sandy beaches and ever-friendly residents still have the power to enchant the hearts of visitors.

The Cicilionis have discovered a dream few people dare create.

A Valentine for the Holiday Place that Turned into Home

That dream became a plan.  They have now bought a residence where they live with their five children at Water Club.  The children, much to the delight of both parents, attend Pine Butte School.
