Amerejuve's board-certified plastic surgeons are experts in an array of cosmetic treatments such as face lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction. Other treatments include breast augmentation, which is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure offered at Amerejuve. Prior to surgery, doctors walk each patient though their choices and answer any questions about the procedure, which is performed by a board-certified surgeon. Amerejuve boasts nine Houston-area locations, including a recently opened location on Gray Street.
Neither needles nor knives can be found at Body Contour Spa, where noninvasive laser liposuction transforms wobbly bits into trim and svelte physiques. Ultrasonic waves from the spa’s LipoLaser system permeate the area of the client’s choice—including the tummy, thighs, back, or buttocks—and gradually dissolve fat cells, allowing their contents to move through the body until naturally absorbed. Within three to four sessions, clients may begin to see noticeable whittling of their waists or shrinking of their third arms. Aside from noninvasive liposuction, Body Contour Spa aids in general bodily detox with prepackaged body wraps, which whisk away internal toxins from the body in as little as 45 minutes.

The experience inspired him to study the practice, earning his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Texas Chiropractic College after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from University of Maryland, College Park. At Webster Laser Like Lipo, Dr. Duchon taps into his extensive training to administer services including peripheral neuropathy, which addresses numbness and tingling sensations, and spinal decompression therapy, which ameliorates spinal pain better than a WD-40 epidural.

Double-board-certified cosmetic laser surgeon Dr. Raul Rodriguez has garnered a fair share of press for his pioneering work in fat reduction, including numerous articles in Modern Luxury, features on local news networks, and a 2003 appearance on 20/20.

Dr. Rodriguez's office tends to faces as well as bodies by relaxing wrinkles with Botox treatments.
