More than 8,000 miles separate Manila from Dallas, a journey that board-certified plastic surgeon Alfedo Rodriguez made in stages. It began at the University of Santo Tomas where he earned his bachelor’s degree and doctorate and set himself up for a residency of general surgery at the University of Philippines. In New Jersey, he established his US credentials with a residency in general surgery before completing a residency in plastic surgery at Saint Luke’s Hospital in Cleveland. He first arrived in Dallas as the chairman of the department of surgery at Dallas Regional Medical Center before opening Southwest Plastic Surgery Center. At the center, he and his staff perform liposuction and cosmetic surgeries along with less-invasive options for rejuvenation such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Dr. Rodriguez is equally adept at matters of function as of form: he also specializes in hand surgeries that alleviate carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive-stress injuries.

Carla Schmidl, DDS, knows that dentistry isn't just about fixing problems. That's why she leads a dental staff that balances cosmetic dentistry with preventative care. Many efforts are made to ensure the comfort of each patient, such as offering nitrous oxide for more relaxed appointments, using digital X-rays that emit less radiation, and letting visitors jump on some bubble wrap. Clear retainers make tooth-straightening more discreet, while fillings can be done in the same color as teeth, instead of the traditional shiny silver.
When Kristina Bauer?a yoga veteran with 20 years of experience and 1,000 classes under her mat?opened Yoga Synergy Spa, she wanted to create a space that felt more like a home than a gym or a corporate chain. Today, her studio glows with her own homemade candles while yogis lead guests through various styles of yoga, including heated Vinyasa flow, Hatha yoga for all levels, a class that invites kids and their parents to stretch together, and even Zumba. In addition to its group session, the studio embraces its spa side with Reiki, infrared sauna sessions, and massage therapy that complements Kristina?s pursuit of peacefulness in the same way that playing Marco Polo can add a little fun to a shark attack. An on-location retail shop stocks yoga mats, homemade natural soaps, and veggie candles.
