When Dr. Sasson Moulavi worked in an emergency room, he noticed a disturbing trend: heart attacks among people in their 30s and 40s. So the bariatric physician developed a diet program that uses organic ingredients, triple-filtered water, and hunger-controlling foods such as muffins, shakes, and soups to help people lose weight. There is even a cookie diet, in which a healthy cookie?formulated to be a perfect balance of fiber, protein, and amino acids?aims to help clients lose several pounds per week.

Dr. Michael Rodriguez specializes in minimally-invasive cosmetic surgery. At Forever Trim, he performs subtle face lifts and artful liposuction. To complement traditional, incision-based liposuction, he and his team also offer a variety of non-invasive treatments for unwanted fat deposits. Zerona treatments, for instance, help break down fatty tissue with laser light, and CoolSculpting treatments freeze fat cells into crystals, which the immune system disposes of naturally by making patients capable of shooting blizzard-like conditions from the palm of their hands.

Working with state-of-the-art equipment and a wide range of non-invasive therapies, Dr. Man and his highly trained staff harvest aches, pains, and injuries from weary folds of flesh. During the thermal massage-bed treatment, heated vibrations gently shake battered bodies, increasing blood circulation, sweeping out toxins, and speeding up the body’s chi. Blasts of pressurized oxygen define the hyperbaric oxygen-therapy session, in which high air pressure enables lungs to draw in greater amounts of oxygen. Although oxygen isn’t absolutely necessary for life, this extra shot of O2 is definitely beneficial—when circulated through the blood and cerebral-spinal fluids, it promotes healing and extends the time patients can hold their breath while relieving fountains of their change.
