The two board-certified plastic surgeons at Hankins & Sohn Plastic Surgery Associates, Dr. W. Tracy Hankins and Dr. Samuel Sohn, specialize in breast aesthetics. As some of the largest users of breast implants in the country, the doctors are well equipped to perform breast augmentations, reductions, lifts, and reconstructions. They also skillfully rejuvenate faces with face-lifts and Botox, and they slim bodies by sucking out fat with SmartLipo liposuction or taking off the patient’s snowsuit. In fact, the doctors partner with some of the Valley’s gastric-bypass surgeons to help contour bodies after clients have had their stomachs shrunk.
[[m:####ClearNail Medical Laser Center ClearNail Medical Laser Center's podiatric specialists help restore the spring in their patients' step by focusing their expertise on the safe, comfortable elimination of toenail fungus. At an initial consultation, a four-point medical examination and tap-dancing test help the doctor ensure that laser treatment is the patient's best option. Because the treatment uses a low level or cold laser light, it causes no pain to the patient and won't harm healthy skin cells as it penetrates through the nail plate, nail bed, and nail root to destroy the fungus. The results of treatment become apparent between two weeks and two months afterward, as healthy, clear nails push the old, infected areas upward to be clipped away and pitched into the nearest volcano. ClearNail Medical Laser Center also sanitizes shoes with ultraviolet light and dispenses medication to help patients fight nail fungus at home.
Dr. William Baumgartl, director of Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Care at Avèa Wellness Center, draws upon his diverse background in engineering and medicine to help his patients defy the aging process. His know-how extends to a multitude of laser technologies, as well as facial sculpting with the help of injectable fillers and medical-grade play-doh. Hormone-replacement therapy helps men and women keep a spring in their step, and massage services heal aches and pains caused by excessive springing.
