Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.

Each Eye Doctor?s Optical Outlets location is doctor-owned, uniting the staff with a common vision to sharpen sight and boost eye health. Eye examinations reveal prescriptions and uncover any other ocular problems. After patients choose a new set of lenses, the in-house technicians get to work crafting them in the shop?s own lab rather than sending them off to be made during a summer camp?s arts and crafts day. Sundry designer frames border eyes in looks from Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs to Nike and Harley Davidson, and there is usually a trio of technicians in the shop, enabling multiple clients to summon help with a single pigeon call.

Board-certified Dr. Jennifer Landy of The Landy Center for Plastic Surgery specializes in facial cosmetic procedures that create more youthful expressions and appearances. Before performing blepharoplasty—Italian for "eyelid lift"—Dr. Landy consults with patients to discuss the treatment, explain after-care procedures, and answer questions. A light application of local anesthetic prepares the eyelid for a tiny incision in its natural crease, which gives the doctor access to excess skin while allowing for minimal scarring after healing sets in. The 30-minute outpatient session leaves patients with reduced over-eye skin folds, and makes it possible for eyes to display their colors as prominently as flags on strike or a peacock in the stocks.

High-fashion frames from Prada, Cartier, and Michael Kors line the walls at Absolutely Optical and Eye Trends. The 3,000 designer-quality frames in stock on any given day include an extensive selection crafted from long-lasting materials such as titanium, stainless steel, or virgin zyl plastic imbued with fade-proof color. Technicians wander through the shop, waiting to fit the frames with distortion-free sunglass lenses, the newest generation of antireflection lenses, or googly eyes so it seems like you are awake while guarding a boring art museum. For prescriptions, patrons can consult the onsite optometrist, Dr. Jay Weil, who not only tests vision but also bolsters eye health with procedures ranging from hydrating treatments for dryness to LASIK surgery.

Pain comes in many forms, and its causes aren't always obvious. Injuries sustained in an auto accident can lead to persistent headaches, and dozing off while trapped inside a giant mason jar can result in chronic back pain. Whatever the cause of your discomfort, the therapists at Back & Neck Pain Relief Center will help you find a solution. Licensed chiropractic doctor Nathan A. Jones doesn't just treat ailments where they manifest themselves in the body. Instead, he searches for their source and nips them at the bud with techniques that are as safe as they are effective. Massage therapist Jessica Andaluz joins him in relieving clients' stress with Swedish and deep-tissue massage strokes.
