About Dr. Bharti

Paving the Way for Aesthetic Wellness

As a premier aesthetic plastic surgeon and Co-Owner & Managing Partner of HKB Cosmetic Surgery, I am extremely passionate about creating value in the industry. Through growth advocacy, innovative concepts, and medical expertise, my aim is to influence the trajectory of the aesthetic space, improve patient outcomes, and contribute to cutting-edge advancements in the industry.

In addition to being a board-certified plastic surgeon and business owner, I’m also a board advisor, industry advocate, mentor, speaker, lecturer, entrepreneur, fellowship director, investor, and influencer. I aspire to use my experience and expertise to foster progression and shape the future landscape of aesthetic wellness for consumers, industry partners, and anyone this industry impacts.

I believe that plastic surgery requires a balance of technical skill, compassion, and understanding, and I’m fully committed to helping the entire aesthetic wellness space thrive. I will continue to move the needle forward and bridge the gap between the industry and consumers by acting as a trusted source of relevant, true, and valuable information.

I am currently looking for opportunities to expand my reach and will continue to contribute to advisory boards, committees, panels, publications, podcasts, and community events that support the aesthetic wellness, aesthetic surgery, and aesthetic medical industries.

Contact me here with new opportunities.
