Huw Lloyd Davies and Stu White started BodyWorks Lifestyle as a place where they can help others improve their own health and fitness. The center's training principles are built upon holistic health awareness, the fundamentals of nutrition, and metabolic conditioning. Alongside an excellent supporting staff, the team curates a curriculum of group training classes, personal-training sessions, nutrition consultations, and holistic life coaching.
BodyWorks Lifestyle also offers an online training program, a portal full of videos and written workouts for people who can’t make it to classes because their motorized unicycles are out of gas. The online program includes a weekly telephone chat with one of the gym’s trainers, who speaks to the philosophy of the center's inspirational founder.
Not many plastic surgeons are also inventors. But Dr. Arian Mowlavi, founder of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute, designed a contraption called the "Mowlavi Umbilicator," which makes the newly formed innie belly buttons resulting from his tummy tucks look completely natural in a bikini or stuffed with lint. In addition to lifting and tucking tummies, the board-certified plastic surgeon can surgically enhance nearly any area on the face or body that is causing its owner strife. He conducts many of these procedures in his Laguna Beach outpatient surgery center, which features an operating room and recovery suites, as well as discreet entrances and waiting areas to ensure patient privacy.
Though cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon Jeffry B. Schafer has been performing surgical procedures since 1978, over the past 15 years his attention has turned to developing and performing the latest noninvasive and laser-based body-contouring techniques. His SomaSculpt office is a Center of Excellence for both Cynosure and Palomar laser systems, and the staff has mentored more than 100 physicians and 20 nurses in laser lipolysis.
Dr. Schafer also created a superficial skin-tightening method, and he was one of the earliest US physicians to use the Body-Jet liposuction system. He even appeared on an episode of The Doctors to demonstrate its transformative effects and see a real, live applause sign in person.

Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
