"The philosophy of this practice is to combine excellent patient care with evidence-based medicine," says board-certified plastic surgeon Hisham Seify, MD, FACS. Dr. Seify has conducted extensive clinical investigations in the field of endoscopic plastic surgery. He shares his evidence-based discoveries by contributing chapters to medical textbooks and instructing future generations of cyborg physicians at the UCLA School of Medicine. At Newport Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Seify takes the time to explain the pros and cons of procedures so that patients can make informed decisions concerning their bodies. His services range from face-lifts, tucks, and augmentations to less invasive chemical peels and body contouring.
While patients dream of refined physiques in the waiting room, sunlight pours between gilded curtains. On either side of the window, a flat-screen TV mirrors a painting of Parisian streets rendered in oils and vinegars.
The certified instructors and professional staff at Club Pilates are passionate about bringing the full-body health and energy benefits of Pilates to everybody. At this bright and spacious studio, the focus is on Pilates Reformer classes, or classes teaching students the classic flexibility-boosting and strengthening moves of Pilates using Balanced Body Reformer equipment. Students can learn core-strengthening and alignment techniques in Pilates Reformer Level 1, or help boost their metabolisms in the Pilates Reformer Cardio Sculpt class, which features jumping and circuit training that works up a sweat more safely than pushing a wheelbarrow filled with hamburger meat through a wolf pack's territory.
SeaFit Studio's encouraging exercise instructors lead groups through Lagree Fitness classes, a Pilates-based workout developed by trainer Sebastien Lagree that combines cardio movements with intense strength training. Inside the sunny studio, rows of padded Megaformer machines rest side by side, waiting patiently to burn calories and activate sweat glands as upbeat music blasts from speakers. All Lagree Fitness classes are available in small packages, unlimited monthly packages, or limited monthly packages.
Dr. Luis J. Riberos views dentistry as an art. His inspiration is the patients who come to the office looking to improve the appearance of their smiles, with only a vague description and a fading tattoo of their younger selves to show what they want done. Dr. Riberos then applies his artistic vision and culls from modern dentistry’s available tools, such as implants, veneers, and metal-free fillings, to craft a smile that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. He and Dr. Eric S. Wilson bring more than 30 years of combined dental experience to their practice, which covers the full range of general-dental, cosmetic, and endodontic services.
Co-founders Tricia Ashley and Michelly Young can both remember the moment they fell in love with yoga. Tricia’s happened when she stepped into a Bikram yoga class and remerged 90 minutes later sweaty, tired, and ultimately inspired to dedicate her life to the transformative practice. Michelly, a lifelong dancer and Zumba enthusiast, turned to yoga whenever her MBA program became stressful, and after graduating, she combined her degree and her passion by opening her own studio. Now they find fulfillment everyday helping students discover their best selves and achieve more than they thought was possible.
Together, Tricia and Michelly have created a community that speaks to all their interests with a full list of classes. Their signature hot yoga class is reminiscent of Bikram yoga, but is offered in 60-, 75-, or 90-minute sessions. SolFire also uses radiant heat panels to evenly distribute heat from floor to ceiling. As a result, the air distribution is easier to handle for those with allergies or sensitivities to pollen and dust. Alternatively, Heart and Sol yin yoga offers students a calm environment to stretch and unwind, while Zumba classes set to high-energy music inspire students to dance out their stress, cares, and any sand still stuck from last summer.
