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.
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.

They banish unwanted hair, veins, and wrinkles with laser treatments and inject facial furrows with a range of smoothing beauty serums. They also provide facials that cleanse and nourish careworn skin.
