Under the watchful eye of certified physician Layton Alldredge, South Valley Surgical center teaches patients how to take control of their lives through supervised weight-loss programs, lap-band surgery, and in-office health and exercise classes. Optifast meal replacements teach patients the importance of portion control by serving 800–1,200 calorie meals three times a day while lap-band surgery takes a more invasive yet equally successful approach to battle obesity. Dr. Alldredge also specializes in general surgery services for a range of issues, including hernia, thyroid problems, and mastectomies.
In slenderizing their clients, the technicians at Lifestyle Lipo don’t use a knife. In fact, they don’t break the skin at all. Instead, they rely on ultrasonic energy to reach through the skin and remove fat cells on hips, thighs, buttocks, and waists. The procedure is designed to permanently and safely destroy fat cells. The ultrasonic sound waves that do the killing are calibrated to target adipose tissue alone and ignore other types of tissue completely. As a result, clients can return to normal activity immediately following treatments.
The technicians at The Body Sculpt Xpress dedicate themselves exclusively to ultrasound-cavitation body sculpting, a noninvasive technique already popular in Europe and Australia. They customize treatments based on the thickness of fat and its distribution throughout the body. To accommodate clients’ schedules, the technicians offer appointments both in the office and at home with their mobile contouring machine transported on a parade float with a marching band.
Led by Dr. Dale Richards, chiropractic physician, the doctor and technicians at Absolutely Beautiful Spa & Wellness Center administer non-invasive treatments to reduce body circumferences and create slimmer silhouettes. After a free personal assessment, Dr. Richards can recommend LipoLaser and electro body procedures to melt away fat with lasers, electric stimulation, or sappy love songs. In addition to technological procedures, a registered dietitian is available to guide clients toward healthier diets with weight-loss programs customized to individual goals.
Offering treatments that battle fat and cellulite with ultrasound cavitation, Hot Mama Body Sculpting takes the high-tech approach to helping customers look their best. Patients can shed between 1/4 and 1 inch during sessions, where technicians target specific areas such as the abs, stomach, or thighs. The noninvasive sessions target fat cells, breaking them down so they can be removed via natural bodily mechanisms. Hot Mama Body Sculpting also offers a radio frequency treatment to help tighten areas of loose skin, but results vary heavily and depend on each individual and their genetics.
