The licensed doctors, certified dietitians and nutritionists of WellCorpRx appreciate that food sensitivities, metabolic rates, and predisposition to certain diseases vary from person to person, and they will supervise all weight loss programs. That's why their health services, such as the medical weight-loss program, rely on consultations and testing to carefully tailor treatment for each client. Besides customizing nutrition recommendations, this process also helps WellCorpRx's team identify useful supplemental therapies, such as hormone-replacement therapy and lipotropic vitamin-B12 or Lipo-B injections. Beyond weight loss, the physicians extend their practice to treatments for the sneezing, coughing, and involuntary break dancing often associated with seasonal allergies.
Within a tranquil, private room, a massage therapist lightly sets smooth, heated stones along a client’s back. Nearby, a professional athlete discusses her chronic pain or injury-related soreness with a therapist, who tailors the pressure accordingly. These represent just a snippet of the day-to-day activities at Mercy's Touch Massage Clinic, where staffers reenergize bodies and minds with an array of massage modalities—including prenatal, Swedish, and deep tissue—as well as other calming services such as body wraps, aromatherapy, and advanced sheep-counting techniques.
For more than 40 years, the doctors and staff at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery have worked to beautify clients inside and out with cosmetic plastic-surgery procedures. The center's three board-certified plastic surgeons don't just fulfill the required minimum to form a surgeon folk-rock band—they also furnish the diverse specialties necessary to lavish their patients with services ranging from facelifts and rhinoplasty to liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. Meanwhile, an in-house anti-aging physician treats hormone imbalances and coaches guests on losing pounds through the hCG diet. The team also bolsters patients' appearances with nonsurgical procedures including facial injectables, laser hair and tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores stretched by spelunking freckles.
The interior of Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery conjures a sense of serenity with its rich wood floors complemented by walls in quiet earth tones such as forest, sand, and ozone layer. Contemporary artwork hangs over unimposing furniture in the waiting room, and a more formal reception space beckons visitors with pastoral art and an oriental area rug.
Medical Weight Loss by Healthogenics' three-step process helps weight-loss-seekers shed bulk and maintain their svelte figures through proper nutrition and supplemental lipotropic injections infused with vitamin B12. First, the professional medical staff conducts thorough medical evaluations, including a full-body-composition analysis and an individual consultation to discuss weight-loss goals. Using this information, as well as dietary needs or restrictions, the physician creates a custom weight-loss plan specific to each slimmer.
The stabilization phase comes next, when the condemned fat has been banished and the doctors discontinue the prescription of appetite suppressants and other pharmaceutical aids. Trained specialists continue to offer weekly support to help dieters stay on course.
Weight-loss maintenance, the program’s end goal, leaves folks feeling healthier, slimmer, and ready to sport horizontal stripes on their wedding days.

Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
