Dr. Robert Kratschmer's former career as a NASA engineer gave him a desire to make the human form more aerodynamic. Now a board-certified plastic surgeon, he makes physiques sleeker with liposuction, tummy tucks, and cellulite treatments or reshapes ungainly rudders with rhinoplasty. Some of his less invasive treatments include wrinkle-reducing injectables and Vivit? facials, which serve as good solutions for those not ready to go under the knife.

Since completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology more than 20 years ago, Dr. James Kern has helped women maintain their inner well-being. Now, with the addition of medical aesthetics, Kern helps men and women alike showcase their outer beauty through both surgical and noninvasive procedures, from Botox to weight loss. Transformations can take place under the doctor-directed HCG diet, which deploys the HCG pregnancy hormone to speedily release unwanted fat cells in both men and women. Through the Body-Jet liposuction system, water flushes out fat to help sculpt and contour the body more effectively than a slip ‘n’ slide souped up with a pressure washer.
Acclaimed by Forbes as one of the United States' leading plastic-surgery providers in 2009, The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery enhances natural beauty by tweaking clients' existing features. SkinMedica chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments both foster deep exfoliation and cell renewal, and laser hair removal lifts away body hair without harming or blinding the skin. Bianca Moreno, RN administers cosmetic injections for Botox, Juvederm, and more.
Dr. Phu M. Do, medical director of Aesthetic Surgery Institute, employs his expertise as a board-certified surgeon as he augments and crops physiques through cosmetic surgery and laser treatments. He instructs other physicians in liposuction and fat grafting, and also delivers national lectures on plastic surgery and other popular Jeopardy! categories.
Dr. Do joins his talents with those of Dr. Wilbur Hah. Dr. Hah boasts a trio of board certifications in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, otolaryngological head and neck surgery, and cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Van Tran decided in 2003 that he wanted to do more to help patrons with weight loss and general health. "By opening Vibrance," he says, "I was able to refer my patients to my weight loss consultants and create programs that are safe, effective, and personal to the individual's needs." The clinic combines the technical expertise found in a doctor's office with the the advanced equipment of a medspa. That equipment includes diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, Botox injections, and intense-pulsed-light devices. There is also, of course, a battery of lasers for repairing skin, removing hair, and treating acne.
One of the primary focuses, though, is on weight loss. The team provides personalized services that can work with a wide range of lifestyles and body types. Patients, Dr. Van Tran says "get a personal weight loss program. Any medical questions or tests that need to be run can be done in one visit."
