The doctors at Brand Surgical Institute specialize in lap-band and sleeve gastronomy procedures, both of which facilitate rapid weight loss by reducing the capacity of the stomach. But that doesn't mean that they view these procedures as a quick fix?instead, they help each of their patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment, providing dietary education, support, and tips that go beyond "eat a head of broccoli for every bite of chocolate." The institute also performs cosmetic procedures, from tummy tucks and liposuction to non-surgical, body-contouring VelaShape III sessions.
Inside Beautiful Image South Bay, a team of estheticians helps clients look radiant using a host of high-tech machinery. Skin-renewing options include the microcurrent facelift, which works to tighten skin without resorting to injections or strenuous evening-out with a rolling pin. For targeted fat reduction, the team might suggest noninvasive red LED Lipo-Light treatments, which shrink fat cells while giving the relaxing sensation of a hot-stone massage.
Beautiful Image South Bay uses non-surgical microcurrent technology to help its clients shed wrinkles and look younger. Featured on ABC News, CBS, and NBC, the anti-aging treatment reeducates the facial muscles, causing the skin to elasticize and tighten. The same system is offered for the body, resulting in a toned physique with minimal hints of flab and stretch marks. Beautiful Image South Bay also offers microdermabrasion that sloughs away dead skin to produce healthy, radiant complexions.
Prior to taking the helm of Beverly Hills Institute of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Soheil Lahijani first honed his craft at some of the top programs in the country and by the side of international surgical stars. What he learned as the chief resident at Yale University-Saint Mary's Hospital and in the operating rooms of Vanderbilt University and exam rooms of Barcelona, Spain, shaped him into a skilled plastic surgeon.
Before he ever picks up a needle, scalpel, or can of spray glitter, he and his staff educate prospective patients on their cosmetic options and counsel them on realistic expected results. Only then does Dr. Lahijani set about performing face-lifts and rhinoplasty, augmenting and lifting breasts, and reshaping physiques with liposuction.
Holly Goguen's passion for holistic healing stems from a childhood fascination with the ways illnesses manifested differently in herself and others. Holly went on to pursue a Masters and Doctoral Degree in traditional Chinese medicine, certifications in acupuncture and massage therapy, and ongoing education in other holistic fields. Her multidisciplinary approach to wellness seeks to alleviate anxiety, general pain, headaches and a wide range of other complaints by directly addressing their causes rather than leaving passive-aggressive post-it notes for their symptoms.
For more than four decades, Soboba Medical Group's physicians have funneled their expertise into weight loss and nutrition, led by board-certified internist Dr. Allen Jay. Their custom treatment plans, based on each client?s history and weight-loss goals, incorporate medications such as nutritional supplements and lipotropics. Each plan facilitates initial weight loss, but also aids with long-term physical maintenance, preventing damaging yo-yo dieting.
To complement the weight-loss programs, the center offers supplementary treatments. Body wraps with vitamin B12, for example, are designed to relax and re-energize clients.
