WA Optimum Health Care Launches First Aesthetic Center of Excellence in Shanghai
By: Sarah Bethune Kelly
Launch of First Aesthetic Center of Excellence in Shanghai
WA Optimum Health Care is proud to announce the expansion of its beauty and cosmetic department, with the launch of WA AestheticTM this month. Already well known for bringing the best cosmetic surgeons from China and USA, now the cosmetic team of WA is joined by the finest cosmetic surgeons from Korea.
Dr Mark Berman, MD, President of WA AestheticTM, says “We have selected these surgeons based on their standard of excellence, quality, and experience with Asian features. Their extensive celebrity patient list speaks to their good reputation. Our patients are excited about the new cosmetic options now available to them.”
New additions to the WA team:
Dr Lee Face and Eye surgeries & treatments
Dr Huh Hair Transplants & Hair Re-Growth
Dr Moon Veins
In addition to surgeries meant to improve or alter beauty, the WA AestheticTM department also provides surgeries to correct or improve birth defects and scars from injuries or burns, which can go a long way in improving one’s quality of life.
Cosmetic Surgery Tourism
The Korea Health Industry Development says the number of medical tourists from China coming to South Korea ballooned last year to nearly 82,000. Why? The cosmetic industry in Korea has a very good reputation and is considered to be home to the world’s best cosmetic surgeons. As Koreans and Chinese have similar facial contours, it is a natural choice for Chinese to go to Korea. In addition to the excellent technique of the surgeons, there is also a very high level of service and patient care.
Now Chinese no longer have to fly to other countries, to get the same level of result and service. Located in a luxurious villa within a large private garden in Shanghai, WA AestheticTM offers access to the best cosmetic surgeons without the need to get a visa, travel long distances, or speak another language, with the option to recuperate in your own home or in one of their 5 star partner hotels.
Cosmetic Trends for Asians
The most common request from Asian clients is for double eyelid surgery, or to change the nose or jaw line. Also, it is estimated that one third of the clients in Asia that have cosmetic procedures are men. Men want to look good too, and many see it as a means to have greater success in life, both secularly and socially.
How to choose a good surgeon
A trustworthy doctor in any field will give you personal attention, and not view you as a commodity. They will not recommend a procedure or product based on their profit margins or based on their particular skill level.
A good cosmetic surgeon would make sure that you are well informed, and that you have realistic expectations of the results. An excellent cosmetic surgeon will also recommend certain lifestyle changes to follow before and after your procedure, to lengthen and enhance the results of your improved appearance.
Dr Tony Lu, Chief Medical Officer at WA Optimum Health Care explains that “Our regenerative medicine packages are often chosen by our patients as an enhancement to their cosmetic treatments. If you have body work done to your car but do not care for the engine, what is the point? Looking after the inside will naturally make you feel and look younger, and compliment your cosmetic changes.”
One patient, a Shanghainese television actress, agrees, saying “I am very happy with my results. I feel beautiful, more confident, and better than any new dress can make me feel! But more than that, I feel younger and healthier. The personal care from the entire medical and service team has definitely improved my quality of life."
WA AestheticTM is set apart from other cosmetic surgery clinics in the following ways:
1. An international and multi-lingual team of cosmetic surgeons who understand the aesthetic preferences to various cultures and races
2. Each surgeon has their fields of expertise which they have spent years perfecting and updating with the latest techniques
3. The surgeons are not simply mechanical, but are artists and take great pride in helping each patient get the best possible results
4. Focus on personal attention and privacy in a 5 star environment
5. A full medical team provides excellent follow-up care and personalized health & lifestyle programs
Commenting on the unique aspects of WA, CEO Derek Muhs says "WA AestheticTM is very proud to set a new gold standard in the very latest cosmetic and beauty procedures. The WA standard of the highest quality and safety is something we do not compromise on. Our patients are very excited to have the world’s leaders coming to them in our 5-Star medical facilities in Shanghai and Beijing. Patients appreciate not leaving their home country for aesthetic procedures but still maintaining total privacy and discretion during and after the treatment."
The range of non invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic specialties now available in the WA AestheticTM Department are:
BODY: Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, Scar removal, Vein removal
FACE: Double eyelid (blepharoplasty)
