Though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jeneby specializes in transforming patients' appearances, his own face may look very familiar. The diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery has shared his extensive knowledge of both adult and pediatric plastic-surgery procedures with stations such as ABC News and KENS 5, and he was named one of the best area plastic surgeons by S.A. Scene. Dr. Jeneby also offers expertise as a national trainer on topics such as Lipotherme, SmartLipo body sculpting, and DOT therapy laser skin resurfacing.
At the equally acclaimed Plastic & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Jeneby and his staff perform surgical and noninvasive procedures ranging from rhinoplasties to SmoothShapes laser cellulite treatments. The facility houses a convenient onsite lab for blood draws and a concierge room where family members can watch television or their own DVDs from home. Clients can head upstairs to Spa Black to be treated with lasers that remove unwanted hair, banish pigmented lesions, or read barcode versions of Shakespeare.
Dr. Tamyra Rogers could not have predicted how spending time on a Navajo reservation would shape her multifaceted approach to weight loss. After spending a year as chief resident at The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Dr. Rogers directed the metabolic clinic at the Tuba City Indian Medical Center in Arizona. She helped build a wellness center for the Navajo Nation and chaired a program to fight the growing diabetes epidemic. During her time there, she gained an appreciation of the community's holistic health-care philosophy.
Today, Dr. Rogers combines her background in traditional Western medicine with weight-loss strategies that address each person as a whole rather than two children in disguise. Dr. Rogers's team of personal trainers and group fitness instructors complement her own fitness knowledge, which stems from playing college basketball.
Dr. Kim Ross likes to help people look and feel their best. By graduating college first in her class and garnering the single dermatology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, she equipped herself with the skills to do just that. Over a more than 10-year career, Dr. Ross has enhanced the appearances and well-being of countless patients with a meticulous manner that has earned her invitations to present at conferences throughout the country. She and her team perform FDA-approved treatments that bolster images inside and out, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels to freshen skin, cosmetic injections to regain youthful appearances, and laser hair and spider-vein removal to prepare for dates with marble statues.
In 2001, Drs. Nancy Rector-Finney and Karen Hasty, friends since their residency days at the University of Texas Health Science Center, followed their dreams of opening a small practice where women could feel welcomed and at ease while receiving the highest level of care. Both doctors cultivate this relaxing atmosphere by providing friendly, personalized care during an array of services, from regular gynecological checkups to dermal-filler injections and chemical peels. Additionally, FourSeasons Aesthetics' team of specialists helps exemplify the doctors' nurturing sides by taking the time to get to know patients through casual conversations and three-hour staring contests.
The Laser Spa's Dr. Kamala Rao has been a board-certified anesthesiologist for more than 35 years. She and her team administer a wide variety of laser treatments, eliminating unwanted hair, spider veins, and facial blemishes with unerring rays that never fly wide and puncture the ozone layer. She also employs the highest grade of skincare products from Obagi and PCA, as well as professional mineral makeup from Jane Iredale.
Dr. Rao's belief that “when you look good, you feel good” is a mantra that reverberates throughout the European-style spa. Beyond laser sessions, Botox treatments, and chemical peels, the doctor unfurrows souls by teaching yoga classes in her spare time.
Dr. Delio Ortegon, the president and director of San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery, believes there is no set definition of beauty. As he explains in an interview on his website, aesthetic appeal rests not in a certain nose shape or specific earlobe measurement but rather in the symmetry and balance of the face and physique. The board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializes in reshaping bodies to enhance this pleasing proportional harmony. But before Dr. Ortegon ever picks up a scalpel, he learns his patients' goals and vision for themselves during in-depth consultations.
