Dr. Larry Lasky wants to see smaller numbers on scales, pant labels, and—most importantly—medical studies regarding obesity-related diseases. He shares this mission with the community through broader-scale initiatives aimed at improving school lunches and the readability of nutrition labels, and through personalized plans for clients at his weight-loss centers. There, he and his team of bariatric specialists guide patients through their medical weight-loss programs step by step. They tailor treatments for individual needs, customizing diet plans, administering weekly injections of methylcobalamin injections, and recommending FDA-approved appetite suppressants and medications.

Dr. James J. Chao oversees plastic surgeries and medical-spa treatments behind the elegant glass façade of his office at Image Spa MD. The doctor and his expert team polish faces with chemical and glycolic peels, enhance eyelashes with Latisse, and warm paraffin wax for hands chapped by weather or hanging from tattered monkey bars. Though some may recognize Dr. Chao from the sidelines of NFL Chargers games—he serves as the team's plastic and hand surgeon—he often makes possible lasting enhancements in the lives of everyday clientele with cosmetic injectables, as well as plastic surgeries such as liposuction, breast augmentation, and rhinoplasties.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
Despite its wide range of therapeutic services, Rapha Physical Therapy maintains a cozy, welcoming atmosphere that won't intimidate the kids it exclusively treats.
