At Brimhall Eye Center, board-certified eye surgeon Dr. Brett Brimhall uses advanced LASIK technology to help patients put the world into sharper perspective. Patients are cleared for the sight-strengthening procedure during an initial consultation that takes into consideration their level of impairment, likelihood for success, and any potential pitfalls to a future career in hypnotism. The LASIK procedure employs a laser device to safely reshape the cornea, significantly sharpening vision and reducing patient dependency on glasses or contact lenses. Fully dedicated to both safety and patient comfort, Dr. Brimhall keeps his facility up to date using an eye tracker that moves faster than ocular orbs, encouraging an open dialogue between patients and staff, and recently replacing all office candelabras with electronic lamps.
Trimcare & Safe Laser Centers founder and board-certified doctor of internal, bariatric, and anti-aging medicine Ivan Goldsmith has been practicing medicine for more than two decades, during which time he has witnessed the challenges faced by people struggling to lose weight and gain self-esteem. At Trimcare & Safe Laser Centers, he helps clients lose weight and keep it off with a combination of appetite suppressants, physician supervision, and behavioral modification. Dr. Goldsmith first uses an InBody biometric scale to analyze body fat. He then injects vitamin B12 and other lipotropic shots into the body to jump-start the weight-loss program and boost the client’s energy. He also helps his patients achieve longer-lasting results with FDA-approved appetite suppressants and a behavioral consultation that re-teaches people how to eat.
In addition to weight-loss programs, the doctor and his team beautify bodies with services such as cosmetic injectables and i-lipo laser body-contouring treatments. They also restore vim and vigor via hormone-replacement therapy, which supplements bodily chemicals stolen by the aging process or desperate bodybuilders.
Ravi Ramanathan, MD, known as Dr. Ram, is a long-time Las Vegas resident. He attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he received his bachelor of science degree and medical degree at the University of Nevada School of Medicine and did his Postgraduate training in family medicine. He finally settled down at Family Doctors of Green Valley, where he puts his training to work.
Preventive tests and screenings, such as EKGs and ultrasounds, lay the foundation of the practice, though he and his staff also offer personal training and weight-loss programs that spread the good word about the benefits of healthy eating and exercise, all bolstered by information gained by body measurements from a state-of-the-art InBody520 device.
The two board-certified plastic surgeons at Hankins & Sohn Plastic Surgery Associates, Dr. W. Tracy Hankins and Dr. Samuel Sohn, specialize in breast aesthetics. As some of the largest users of breast implants in the country, the doctors are well equipped to perform breast augmentations, reductions, lifts, and reconstructions. They also skillfully rejuvenate faces with face-lifts and Botox, and they slim bodies by sucking out fat with SmartLipo liposuction or taking off the patient’s snowsuit. In fact, the doctors partner with some of the Valley’s gastric-bypass surgeons to help contour bodies after clients have had their stomachs shrunk.
Dr. Joyce Chang at The Medical Skin Clinic groups her treatments into two categories: general medical care and dermatology. These categories encompass the range of skills she acquired while studying everything from pediatrics to geriatrics. Despite the broad scope of her expertise, Dr. Chang takes special interest in all that ails or enhances the female body. Attuned to the many ways that aging affects the appearance, she rejuvenates skin with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and lasers. At the clinic, Dr. Chang directly supervises licensed aestheticians or medical assistants who diminish fine lines, skin damage, and frozen facial expressions with medical-grade equipment that's only available to physicians.

The advanced dermatology center also restores façades to factory conditions with skin-renewing services such as chemical peels and FDA-approved injections of Botox and Dysport.
