By the time Dr. Richard H. Dubou brought his talents to Louisville Plastics, he had already racked up a string of accomplishments. His achievements included graduating cum laude from Brandeis University, earning his medical degree from State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, and serving as lieutenant commander of the United States Public Health Service at the Marine Hospital’s surgery department in Galveston, Texas. Today, at Louisville Plastics, he oversees a staff of health and beauty specialists who help clients alter their outer appearances through elective surgery as well as less invasive measures, such as Radiesse injections, which reduce fine lines and increase skin’s volume with a special formula.

Getting fit on your own can be a drag—watching what you eat and fitting in daily exercise can start to feel like a full-time job. At Unlimited Possibilities, you're not alone. A trained staff of physician assistants and registered nurses create personalized weight-loss systems designed to help clients shed up to 1 pound a day. The medically supervised treatment is calculated based on medical history and weight-loss goals as well as current health issues, such as elevated cholesterol and sleep disorders including sleep apnea and sheep-counting fatigue.
To ensure each client can stick with the program and achieve long-term results, Unlimited Possibilities schedules regular check-in sessions and keeps an onsite nurse available to answer any medical questions. For additional support, you can be paired with another client on a similar diet plan to offer encouragement and commiseration. To boost results, Unlimited Possibilities may recommend the use of high-protein bars, vitamins, shakes, and other supplements.
Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. With a passion for wellness burnished by her experiences in that job, she earned her teacher’s license to show young people how to preempt diet-caused illness. That endeavor eventually led her to create Target Metabolism, a health-and-wellness company that champions weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric tracking. Beth and her team of registered dieticians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and they delve into thinking past carbohydrates and focusing on a “calories in vs. calories out” metric. This caloric count is based on the client's specific metabolism, rather than the average metabolism of the client's age, weight, height, and gender group. In addition to dieticians, the staff includes massage therapists that offer specific treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process. Modalities include hot stone and aromatherapy.
In 1999, Kleinert Kutz Hand & Aesthetic Plastic Surgery made history when surgeons from its team performed America's first hand-transplant surgery. While the 15-hour procedure served as a crowning achievement for the clinic, which had been specializing in hand care since 1960, it was also a starting point—it preceded the next four hand transplants in America, as well as the world's first digital artery repair and bilateral forearm replantation. Backed by this comprehensive understanding of hand and arm biomechanics, the team now successfully addresses issues of any severity, from fractures to inappropriately loud golf claps. It also helms a complete plastic-surgery center. Its plastic surgeon's full range of surgical tucks, lifts, and contouring procedures are complemented by noninvasive treatments such as laser facial rejuvenation and skin peels.
