Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Weight & Body Solutions' experienced physicians employ technologically enhanced weight-reduction techniques and more traditional nutrition-based programs to help clients melt away unwanted fat and reveal svelte silhouettes. Patients relax in the comfortable atmosphere of a private room as they discuss their beauty goals with informed counselors, asking questions about their various treatment options, which include weekly plans enhanced with thorough exams and energizing vitamin shots along with medical treatments such as tumescent liposuction. Liposuction is done under local anesthesia using a small cannula and requires very little downtime, sending patients back to work within 24 to 48 hours—just in time to sport sleek silhouettes for Risky Business–themed casual Fridays.
The skilled staff—a veritable dream team of medical know-how—shepherds clients toward improved health by designing and leading custom weight-loss, nutrition, and fitness programs. Spread across four locations, the practice tailors comprehensive programs. Doctors, personal trainers, nutritionists, and artists who draw kettlebells onto clients' portraits to make them appear fit pool their disciplines to blast away excess pounds with methods birthed from the mind of science itself. Vitamin and amino-acid injections, ketone strips, appetite suppressants, and supplements are part of the weight loss program. Bio-identical hormones characterize the hormone-therapy program, which seeks to restore bodily balance more effectively than replacing legs with gyroscopes.
Led by Dr. Michael B. Austin, D.O., Affinity Body Solutions' experienced staff of top-notch beautifiers gussies up customers with a comprehensive slate of prettifying procedures performed amid its soul-soothing environs. The exfoliating diamond microdermabrasion jettisons unwanted fine lines, sun damage, boot prints, and acne scarring to produce a yearbook-ready radiance. Affinity Body Solutions' visage wizards eschew futuristic photons for enchanted diamond-resurfacing wands that renounce irritation and downtime and slyly pull apple-cheeked rabbits from behind clients' ears.

Tampa Healthy Aging's founder Dr. Anthony Granell built his business to be patient-focused, a common element in all of his ventures. He also runs a family practice in the city and founded St. Michael's Medical Center and Health Point Medical Group of Tampa. His idea to start up Tampa Healthy Aging stems from his desire to continue providing quality health care to his patients as they age. "We take our time with patients, and we are genuinely concerned about them and their health," says Alicia, the office manager.
Dr. Granell and his team address both health and beauty concerns for their patients. They might provide nutritional guidance, coaching, and medical treatments to assist in weight loss. Or, they help combat the appearance of wrinkles, unwanted hair, and age spots with everything from laser skin treatments to injectables. They even conduct hormone replacement therapy, which can assist with weight loss, restore a flagging libido, and even boost energy so you don't have to keep swallowing watch batteries.
