To Imago Plastic Surgery's Dr. Aaron Mason, it doesn't matter if your last birthday cake had fewer candles than you have fingers or enough to light up a small auditorium; either way, you deserve to feel confident in your appearance. That's why the 18-year medical veteran specializes in both adult cosmetic and pediatric craniofacial surgeries. Not that surgery is always the answer; clients also visit the center to undergo less-invasive treatments, ranging from skin-rejuvenating facials to wrinkle-smoothing Botox cosmetic injections. Along with being a seasoned plastic surgeon, Dr. Mason is also an author, lecturer, researcher, and human being.

Though board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jeneby specializes in transforming patients' appearances, his own face may look very familiar. The diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery has shared his extensive knowledge of both adult and pediatric plastic-surgery procedures with stations such as ABC News and KENS 5, and he was named one of the best area plastic surgeons by S.A. Scene. Dr. Jeneby also offers expertise as a national trainer on topics such as Lipotherme, SmartLipo body sculpting, and DOT therapy laser skin resurfacing.
At the equally acclaimed Plastic & Cosmetic Center, Dr. Jeneby and his staff perform surgical and noninvasive procedures ranging from rhinoplasties to SmoothShapes laser cellulite treatments. The facility houses a convenient onsite lab for blood draws and a concierge room where family members can watch television or their own DVDs from home. Clients can head upstairs to Spa Black to be treated with lasers that remove unwanted hair, banish pigmented lesions, or read barcode versions of Shakespeare.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon in Texas, Arkansas, California, Pennsylvania and Florida, Dr. Thomas Jeneby helps patients seeking drastic as well as subtle cosmetic changes.

He’s joined in San Antonio by Spa Black’s dedicated staff, which includes medical aestheticians, an anesthesiologist, and medical assistants. Together, this team performs a wide array of cosmetic surgical procedures as well as noninvasive treatments.

After spending 18 years refining his craft at hospitals across the country and earning a trio of board certifications, Dr. Venkat Erella brought his talents to Aspasia Medical Solutions in 2009. The body-contouring expert headlines a cast of medically trained beauty-boosters that augments human hides with cosmetic treatments, such as tummy tucks, body lifts, and patchwork for sumo suits with holes poked in them. The clinic also specializes in a slew of noninvasive aesthetic procedures including cellulite laser treatments, wrinkle-reducing dermal fillers, and skin rejuvenation. During complimentary consultations, Dr. Erella talks clients through all viable treatment options to best achieve the desired results.
On Austin Dermagraphix’s bold burgundy walls, bright graffiti murals in primary yellows, blues, and greens leap out at the eye. These vivid works of art overlook Jose Gonzalez as he hunches over arms, legs, and backs, embedding them with any style of tattoo, such as 2-D cartoons or life-like portraits of Nikola Tesla. To do so, Gonzalez draws upon his background as a graffiti artist in Puerto Rico as well as his bachelor’s degree in painting. He joins another resident artist, a piercer, and a laser tattoo-removal technician at the shop, where the top of the wall around the reception desk wears a crown of gold trophies amassed by the staff.
