Philosophy

The Institute of Aesthetic Medicine… “Excellence Through Specialization”

Perhaps the most difficult aspect of choosing a surgeon to perform aesthetic surgery is finding a “true” specialist or one that has the requisite training, experience and expertise.

While it is true that physicians can assert that they are experts on their websites and in promotional materials, mastery in cosmetic surgery is rare. At The Institute of Aesthetic Medicine, our guiding philosophy is:

  • Experts in aesthetic medicine are specialists. They have concentrated expertise in a specific area of cosmetic surgery and target their practices toward a distinct and limited focus.
  • Experts in aesthetic medicine are typically pioneers and innovators which other surgeons adopt in their practices.
  • Experts in aesthetic medicine are recognized by their peers because of accomplishments and technical mastery.
  • Experts in aesthetic medicine publish in scientific journals.
  • Experts in aesthetic medicine are educators and share their specialized expertise with fellow physicians to improve the quality of care delivered to aesthetic patients.
  • Experts in aesthetic medicine lecture at educational symposiums as well as perform live surgery or videotaped demonstrations of their techniques for the advancement of the specialty.

While it may be difficult for the lay public to identify who is a true expert, within the field of plastic surgery the clinical masters are widely acknowledged for their accomplishments and are the academic leaders in the field.

The Institute of Aesthetic Medicine is comprised of a select group of surgeons who are recognized by their peers as experts for specific aesthetic procedures. While most plastic surgeons perform a wide variety of operations, at The Institute of Aesthetic Medicine, our surgeons limit their practices to provide both the skill and artistry to create consistent and natural results.
