Dr. Sherry Fong?s interest in holistic medicine came about after a heartbreaking diagnosis: her 94-year-old grandmother had cancer. The news came in 1994, before the Internet age, so Sherry spent countless hours poring over medical and nutrition books to study every possible way to care for the woman who had raised her. Her grandmother eventually recovered from the disease and lived to be almost 100 years old. This experience inspires Dr. Fong?s work today to assist women with holistic anti-aging, weight loss, detoxification, and healthy living at La Vitalitee. Her offices in San Francisco and Daly City both aim to empower women to take control of their weight, health, and aging process with body-sculpting treatments, and skin-tightening services that can turn back time more effectively than writing "1987" on every page in a day planner.

The brigade of chiropractors, physical therapists, and acupuncturists at World of Health vanquishes spinal and musculoskeletal discomfort and educates patients in nutrition and other facets of wellness. Massage therapists custom-blend therapeutic-grade essential oils to obliterate tension within a multitude of modalities, from myofascial release to sports massage. As they prepare a course of treatment, dedicated doctors engage with each patient's health history and consider such factors as lifestyle, heredity, and tendency to pole-vault.
GAEL Modern Health has aimed to help patients improve their health through state-of-the-art therapies for more than 20 years. The facility's health professionals emphasize a personal approach in their work, focusing on each patient's specific concerns while performing LipoLaser contouring treatments, colon hydrotherapy, and nutritional consultations within large, comfortable private rooms. The pleasant office accommodates English and Russian speakers, and boasts a no-wait policy.
Siblings and board-certified surgeons Dr. Lisa Kang and Dr. David Kang share more than the same parents; they work together at Serenity MedSpa, where they both specialize in aesthetic procedures. Beneath shelves of Botox, Latisse, and glo minerals products, Clear + Brilliant laser systems hum. Like R2-D2?s high-school reunion, the rooms are crowded with high-tech machines, including Smartlipo, Cellulaze, Liposonix and Ulthera.
Dr. Jeffrey DeWeese wanted to be a physician when he was just 12 years old, but it wasn't until an emergency-room rotation that he decided to be a plastic surgeon. After watching a colleague reconstruct a young girl's injured face, Dr. DeWeese resolved to dedicate himself to a specialty that combines artistic vision with technical proficiency to improve patients? quality of life. Now with board certification and more than 17 years of surgical experience, he still relies on this combination of skills, spending ample time with patients beforehand and working with them to select an appropriate treatment regimen.
Surgical procedures comprise a healthy portion of the center's services, but the staff also bolsters confidence, tones and shapes silhouettes, and counteracts aging with less invasive alternatives. Custom facial treatments, for instance, incorporate everything from anti-inflammatory enzymes that conceal signs of acne to soothing masks that leave skin as hydrated as a sponge in a bucket of Gatorade. Microdermabrasion sessions and dermal fillers improve skin tone, whereas a therapeutic massage combines Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and reflexology techniques to address individual aches.
WIth just a cursory glance at their r?sum?s, it becomes instantly clear that the team at Pacific Heights Plastic Surgery have training and experience to back up each of their cosmetic procedures.
Dr. Jonathan Kaplan knew he wanted to be a doctor at age of 16, when he saw a plastic surgeon remove skin cancer from a patient's leg. Dr. Kaplan completed his residency at the Cleveland Clinic, where he trained with the same doctors who performed the first face transplant in the United States.
Rounding out the team is aesthetician Rocio Guzman, who works with the doctors to evaluate patients' skin and design long-term treatment plans. These might include peels, dermaplaning, or microdermabrasion, among many other procedures.
