“…The Aesthetic Medicine industry in this country has worked hard to establish bad reputation for themselves by aggressive marketing, offering excess of questionable services and, generally speaking, not-so-great results. Many expensive procedures are marketed to the public with knowledge of their mediocre effectiveness. These are also masterfully marketed to the Aesthetic practitioners, especially those who are taking their first step into the murky waters of aesthetics. The “luminaries” and “experts” of the industry surprisingly frequently change their opinions depending on which manufacturer of the “newest and wonderful product”  is more inclined to reward them handsomely for a good word.


The Aesthetic Medicine, as generally understood, can be divided into two categories; those which require surgical approach and those that are much less invasive and can be done without major anaesthesia.

Both, the non-surgical and surgical aesthetic procedures, especially facial, have one instrumental requirement in common; they must comply with aesthetics, therefore, the art form. Otherwise, the name “aesthetic” looses its meaning and does not apply regardless of the claims.


I am not a Plastic Surgeon and the surgical procedures are out of the scope of my interest. But the results of these are not; these interest me very much since some of my patients need referral to plastic surgeon for their expertise. The assessment of the results from aesthetic point of view allows me to make the best choice of surgeon for my patients.


I am not a Dermatologist nor I was ever interested in the intricacies of skin disorders. These, I enthusiastically refer to Dermatologist for their expertise. Since aging is a physiological and natural process I do not consider aging, or its consequences, a disease or illness.


Above all, I am after total aesthetic and artistic results in all my patients. As the rest of the aesthetic world recognized long time ago, these can be achieved only with the understanding of, at the least, the basics of art,. Only then the Aesthetic Medicine will deserve its name as it has been for years in most of the other countries.”


I am not the first one who discovered that LESS is MORE…
