The team of cosmetic and plastic surgeons at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute understands the direct link between physical appearance and self-confidence. In their quest to collectively boost the public's self-esteem, they actively reshape and refine clients' problem areas using the industry's latest technologies?including Natrelle breast implants, natural fat transfers, Body-Jet liposuction, and nonsurgical body contouring?to create curves that parabolas could only dream of.
Many of the clinic's doctors also dedicate their efforts to reshaping the lives of those less fortunate in the community. Dr. Maurice Sherman, the clinic's chief medical officer, donates his time and talents to victims of domestic violence, and Dr. Millicent Odunze repairs cleft palates and other facial deformities as a volunteer for Operation Smile.
Beaux Contours: An Aesthetic Institute was founded by Dr. Feyi Emembolu, who completed her residency at the University of Chicago, one of the country's top medical schools, and Dr. Charles Otieno, who completed his residency at another of the country's top medical schools—UCLA. These two are joined by Dr. Joseph Bivens, an aesthetic plastic surgeon who has been contouring bodies since 1988, and Dr. Dwight Reynolds, who has trained more than 700 physicians and Operation game enthusiasts in the United States and abroad in liposuction techniques and suture suspension. All four doctors stay abreast of the latest developments in plastic surgery so they can surgically contour bodies, tuck tummies, and boost bust sizes using the latest techniques.
AZ Bedmart houses an expansive selection of brand-name sleeping surfaces made from a multitude of snooze-inducing materials. Mattress sets at AZ Bedmart start at $399, including the Brittney Luxury Eurotop queen set.

AZ Bedmart also carries a panoply of NASA-developed memory foam mattresses specifically designed to eliminate uncomfortable pressure, absorb motion, and conceal a plethora of stolen moon rocks. The Vera Wang Peaceful Interlude ($2,199) supports slumbering bodies with an antimicrobial latex material concocted to maintain a high level of support for an extended period of time.
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.
Dr. John Shieh?s noninvasive procedures are so effective that celebrities choose him to keep their skin as ageless as the photos in which they appear. For example, his famous Triniti series attracted the attention of Kris Jenner on Keeping Up with the Kardashians; during one episode, Dr. Shieh showed off the benefits of nonsurgical procedures and skincare regimens that exclude pies in the face. RejuvaYou Medical Spa has also been featured on television shows such as Extra!, Entertainment Tonight, CNN, and in the pages of Forbes, Life & Style, and People Magazine.
Dr. Shieh has also charted new territory as one of the first doctors to use the Matrix RF/Sublative wrinkle-reduction procedure and VelaShape body contouring. Today, Dr. Shieh and his staff treat clients to laser lipo, fat transfer to the breasts, face, hands, and buttocks, Botox, Juvederm, chemical peels, and other procedures that fight the signs of aging.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
