Here, three top local doctors in a range of fields:

Dr. Christopher McGowan True You Weight Loss

When it comes to weight loss, the truth is that diet and exercise just aren’t that effective. In fact, most people are only able to lose 1 to 4% of their body weight, even after putting forth significant effort into diet and lifestyle modifications. 

Helping patients regain control of their health and well-being through sustainable weight loss is gastroenterologist Dr. Christopher McGowan’s life passion. His innovative approach to helping patients lose weight without surgery through the emerging field of endobariatrics has garnered national and international attention, drawing patients from more than 48 states and 10 countries. Endobariatrics is a new field of gastroenterology that aims to bridge the gap between drastic measures like bariatric surgery and less effective methods such as diet and exercise. 

Dr. McGowan is the owner, founder and medical director of True You Weight Loss in Cary, NC, the nation’s first and only physician-founded medical practice exclusively focused on providing nonsurgical, state-of-the-art weight-loss procedures and support. Procedures include the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) procedure, bariatric revisional procedures, intragastric balloon placement, aspiration therapy and medical nutrition therapy. Some of these procedures aren’t performed anywhere else in North Carolina or the region.

Every weight-loss procedure offered at True You Weight Loss is performed on an outpatient basis in less than an hour, with most patients getting back to their work and lives in a matter of days. Depending on the procedure and the patient, most will lose between 30 and 100 pounds in less than a year—and will keep it off for the long run. trueyouweightloss.com, @trueyouweightloss, facebook.com/trueyouweightloss

Michael Law

Dr. Michael Law, a Raleigh native and board-certified plastic surgeon at Blue Water Plastic Surgery Partners, provides individualized care specifically tailored to each patient’s unique needs and goals. His philosophy is that great cosmetic surgery results are those that looks natural, not “done.” 

Dr. Law earned a Bachelor of Science degree and graduated with honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and he received his M.D. degree at Emory University where he graduated magna cum laude. Dr. Law also elected to pursue a rigorous 10-year training program—amounting to twice that of some plastic surgeons—which included general surgery residency at the University of California Los Angeles, a plastic surgery residency at the University of Southern California and a plastic surgery fellowship at USC.

Upon completing his surgical training, Dr. Law opened a successful aesthetic plastic surgery practice in Beverly Hills. However, North Carolina always seemed like home, so, in 2002, he brought his exceptional training and talents back to Raleigh.

Blue Water Plastic Surgery Partners is the only office-based plastic medical spa and cosmetic surgery practice in North Carolina that dually holds Joint Commission accreditation and AAAASF certification. All of the aesthetic technologies and procedures available through the practice have been scientifically and reproducibly demonstrated to be safe, effective and appropriate. bluewaterplasticsurgerypartners.com, @blue_water_plastic_surgery, facebook.com/bluewaterplasticsurgerypartners, YouTube: Blue Water Spa

Dr Woll

Over the past few years, the All-on-X implant procedure has emerged as an exciting development in implant dentistry. The procedure has helped thousands of patients who are missing teeth by providing full-mouth rehabilitation using dental implants as its foundation. 

By strategically placing implants that support the arch, the All-on-X procedure provides a full arch of replacement teeth for patients. The restoration is incredibly strong, but also highly esthetic. Using implants as the foundation also means the restoration is fixed in place, so patients never have to worry about it coming out or something covering over their palate. Dr. Woll, DDS, FICOI, and his team at Wells Family Dental Group are able to perform this procedure on nearly anyone—even patients with compromised bone structures or poor dental health. 

“The All-on-X procedure is designed for the patient who has struggled with their oral health and desires a strong, long-lasting, healthy solution that also gives them a flawless smile,” says Dr. Woll.

In most cases, the All-on-X procedure can change the patient’s smile in a single day. With offices in North Raleigh, Wake Forest and Downtown Raleigh, Wells Family Dental Group provides a comfortable and positive experience for families all around the Triangle area. wellsfamilydental.com, @smilesbywfd, facebook.com/wellsfamilydental, email: wakeforest@wellsfamilydentalgroup.com
