The Center for Aesthetic Modernism is dedicated to nurturing the "whole person" through a celebration of beauty, spirituality, and culture. We stand ready to shape and embrace a new era of aesthetic consciousness, one based on cultural sensitivity and individuality. Hair and face are the most visible expressions of this unique self-identity. We strive to enhance authentic beauty through restoring youthful facial contours, growing healthy hair, and optimizing nasal balance.

Robert Motherwell. Africa 5, Screen-print on paper, 1970

Plastic (plas-tik): having power to give form or create  

Psychic (sahy-kik): of or relating to the human mind or psyche

MODERN ART has been a guiding force as I have sought to navigate my ambivalence with the Eurocentric canon of plastic surgery.  The American artist, Robert Motherwell, once described the intent of his art as to unify the plastic and psychic.  This sentiment resonated deeply with me.  In many ways, the pattern of plastic surgery needs an undercurrent of psychic fragmentation in order to exist. We are often misled to think that focusing on “the body” in isolation can create sustainable improvement, that is, without integrating therapy to enhance the mind or spirit.  We all too readily accept the incomplete notion of physical change over metaphysical transformation.  I have found it exceedingly challenging to operate (literally and figuratively) within this divided space. 

I believe now is the time for an aesthetic revolution – a fight to unify the plastic and psychic!

I grew up in Gary Indiana, just 20 miles outside of Chicago Illinois.  In stark contrast to the Windy City - Gary was a small steel town – most readily recognized by industrial odor and the smoke stacks of the U.S. Steel Corporation.  Although the Gary community was nurturing, there was a definite void when it came to being stimulated by the beauty of my surroundings.   Chicago, however, has always been a personal beacon - offering up inspiration for the amazing possibilities of a life engaged with art and design.   As it turns out, Chicago and the Bauhaus have played a fundamental role in my evolution as a physician.   Click to READ MORE
