Licensed physician and surgeon Dr. K. Kam. Zand has seen a lot of patients in his more than 30-year career. After completing a fellowship in hematology at Harvard and receiving obstetrics and gynecology training at Washington University, he was named chief resident at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. There, in the hospital that Einstein built with his own hands, patient after patient walked into Dr. Zand?s treatment room hindered by weight gain and aging. Looking for new ways to help his clients, Dr. Zand began learning about cosmetic procedures, anti-aging tools, and medical weight-loss programs.
Today, Dr. Zand shares his expertise as medical director at Los Gatos Smart Lipo. His clinic tends to patients with an array of cosmetic services, including wrinkle-smoothing Botox, laser skin-tightening and liposuction, and surprisingly non-evil laser hair removal.

They zap fat, clear complexions, and fade unwanted tattoos of Spiro Agnew, but before they do any of that, they make sure their patients stay healthy with nutrition consultations, hormone-replacement therapy, and exercise regimens.

At AZ Dental, a team of six dentists accomplish cosmetic, general, and surgical procedures with an emphasis on patient health and comfort. To keep their guests comfortable, the dental team seats them in massage chairs for procedures such as gentle root canals. They also let patients watch movies on demand to help take their minds off a filling or an elaborate bone-grafting treatment, which increases height and width of the jawbone to fill in empty spaces or correct abnormalities. Backed by a compassionate and courteous staff, the dentists work to completely subtract stress from the entire visit, whether it's for a tooth whitening or a routine checkup. The office features wood accents and hallway sconces, just like the tree forts of most robber barons.
