“I want to make people happy. One of the ways I make people happy is by reconciling the way that they feel internally with the way that they look externally, and unifying those together. That’s what aesthetic wellness is.”
2020 Year in Review
From COVID-19 forcing plastic surgery facilities to temporarily close, to receiving a flood of patients after reopening, 2020 has definitely been full of unexpected events. Follow along as we walk you through exactly what the 2020 year brought for us, as well as what we look forward to for 2021!
Finding Work-Life Balance As A Plastic Surgeon
As plastic surgeons, we sometimes forget the importance of exercising work-life balance.
After all, we are extremely passionate about what we do. We love taking care of our patients.
But in order to avoid the terms “workaholic” and “burnout,” you need to set boundaries. Time management is everything for practitioners.
Without it, it’s easy to lose sight of being present, enjoying life, and spending time with friends and family.
Regenerative Medicine Is The Way Of The Future
The future of plastic surgery lies in regenerative medicine. We dive into one of our biggest passions: preventive and restorative treatments.
Many patients are seeking natural ways to maintain their aesthetic wellness and with autologous filler, which includes things like fat, PRP, PRF, and adipose-derived stem cells, we can take from the body and reintroduce elsewhere.
There’s still a lot of scientific research being done and our goal is to continue incorporating these modern practices into how we operate, interact with, and guide our patients towards their desired outcome.
Plastic Surgery Is Popular Across ALL Demographics
As a society, we are undergoing a transformation where plastic surgery is no longer considered “taboo,” but an accepted part of a healthy AestheticWellness regimen for both men and women.
Younger patients are looking at this concept of pre-juvenation and scheduling treatments to prevent signs of aging, while men are able to obtain their desired physique and definition with minimal trauma to the body.
As practitioners, we have this incredible opportunity to help people rediscover their confidence and boost our patients’ happiness through plastic surgery and innovative aesthetic treatments.
The Benefits Of Non Invasive Body Contouring
Minimally-invasive & non-invasive body contouring have become major disruptors within the aesthetic industry. These innovative treatments facilitate muscle stimulation, cell turnover, skin contraction, & fat reduction – using one device to target all areas of the body.
While these continue to grow in popularity, advancements in echnology have helped make surgery more mainstream as well. Both men & women want their definition of an optimal physique and it’s incredible how small procedures can produce real results.
Plastic Surgery Will Always Be A Part Of Your Practice
Has plastic surgery become a thing of the past? Dr. Bharti and Dr. Kortesis weigh in on where surgical procedures stand in the field of aesthetic wellness.
They also dive into the importance of focusing on the patient experience through active listening, guidance, and optimizing the post-op recovery period (in terms of minimizing pain).
Today’s practitioners bear the responsibility of always improving patient outcomes. Technology may change, but delivering what your patients want is imperative to building a successful practice.
Energy-Based Treatments Are Key To Facial Rejuvenation
There’s a large emphasis being placed on facial rejuvenation right now. A popular buzzword floating around beauty magazines these days is “energy-based devices.”
RF microneedling not only improves skin laxity, but it stimulates collagen production and dissolves fat – all by releasing pulses of energy into the skin. We like to tailor our treatments to the specific needs of each patient we meet as these procedures can be incorporated into your overall aesthetic wellness regimen.
Rather than a one-and-done treatment, these minimally-invasive devices can become a regular part of your beauty routine – just like a routine visit to your physician.
Fundamental wellness and tailoring programs to individual patient needs have become a large part of our everyday practice.
2020 Beauty Tips & Trends: What Cosmetic Procedures Are Super Hot Right Now?
Let’s face it: nobody wants to see their skin beginning to age. The appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity are just a few of the common complaints we hear from patients. In this video, we discuss some beauty tips and trends, both classic & new.
Looking for a healthy glow? Rejuvenating skin requires both aesthetic wellness – through treatments like Botox, Dysport, and Jeveau – and a healthy skin care regimen. Not only should you incorporate a cleanser and moisturizer (preferably with SPF) into your daily routine, but agents like Vitamin C and Retinoic Acid are also effective ways to stimulate cell turnover and regeneration.

The Importance Of Aesthetic Wellness And Resiliency During An Unprecedented Time
The aesthetic wellness space, along with America as a whole, has an opportunity to inspire change. 2020 is giving us a run for our money, but if we all take a minute to step back, reflect on what’s going on in the world, educate ourselves, and actively pursue change, we will become stronger and united.
The Importance Of Having A Strong Online Presence For Your Brand
Many cosmetic surgeons ask us about online branding and how they can stand out from their competition.
Having a good online brand is a valuable source of establishing authority in the field and attracting your ideal patients. It requires a mix of patient reviews and a consistent, authentic presence on social media.
What platforms should you choose? What do you do if you get a bad review? How do you differentiate your practice from your top competitor?
We delve into all of this and more.

The Touch-less Experience: What Patients Can Expect After COVID-19
As medical practices begin opening their doors after COVID-19, what can patients expect from their physicians and providers?
We believe Telehealth will continue to be a huge component of the future of healthcare. Patients will also see practices implementing new safety measures – transitioning many processes over to digital to create this touch-less experience. We can’t emphasize enough that while the medical landscape is altering some protocols, patients must remain vigilant and take care of themselves through regular checkups.
While the future of patient care may look different and telemedicine visits are here to stay, this is an opportunity for healthcare providers to provide better care, and give patients the time and attention they deserve.

What Is Aesthetic Medicine Going To Do After The COVID-19 Crisis?
As aesthetic medicine practices get closer to reopening, everyone wants to know what things are going to look like once our doors open again. Not only must we follow state, local, and CDC guidelines, we want to minimize patient thoroughfare by using a combination of telemedicine and in-office appointments.
This new norm calls for enhanced safety protocols and regular communication with colleagues both within and outside your specialty area. Why? Because we need to adapt and establish a consensus.
