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.
