Dr Mark McKenna Offers An Innovative Solution To Help People Who Don’t Have The Time For Elective Cosmetic Procedures

Dr. Mark McKenna says that since his father was is a doctor he learned all about the world from a young age. He didn’t know what he wanted to do once he was older but he didn’t think to be a doctor himself was an option. He viewed the medical profession as too staid and regimented with no room for someone like him. He felt that he was a maverick and you couldn’t be that way as a doctor. As he eventually learned this was wrong and innovation is welcome in any industry.

He eventually earned his medical degree at Tulane University Medical School. Dr. Mark McKenna loved real estate, though, and so, along with his dad, they started a New Orleans development firm in that industry. They purchased a lot of properties and the business was going well until Hurricane Katrina hit, destroying a lot of their properties. He had already grown weary of that industry’s stresses and roller-coaster-like movements so he decided to wind that business down.

After reflecting on what he wanted to do next Dr. Mark McKenna says that he developed a passion for medicine. He moved to Atlanta and wanted to create a new company that would upend the elective healthcare industry. He also spotted the trend of more people, both men and women, wanting to have elective cosmetic surgery performed on them.

He founded OVME in Atlanta’s trendiest neighborhood. His company offers surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. They also perform Botox, dermabrasions, and other noninvasive procedures. Dr. Mark McKenna says that each patient is treated as an individual. He and his staff deliver top-notch customer service which revolves around truly listening to what each customer is seeking from him.

People’s schedules today are hectic with too much to do and not enough time to do it. Dr. Mark McKenna says that the team at OVME recognizes this and is looking at coming up with innovative solutions to solve this time-crunch. He might even start offering noninvasive procedures in his customer’s homes and offices. This would benefit his company by increasing revenues while also benefitting customers who want a procedure done but can’t find the time to do it.

Dr. Jennifer Walden: Feminism In The Operating Room Is A Good Thing

Plastic surgery can seem biased for many reasons. For one over 90 percent of cosmetic surgery patients are women. Altogether there are over 8,000 plastic surgeons in the United States. However, less than 1,000 of them are women. Only 10 percent of those women are members of the highly ranked professional organization known. Dr. Walden knows that she is setting a trend for women who are looking to become plastic surgeons. However, she understands that she has to work very hard to prove herself as a woman in the field. Close to 10 years of schooling to become a surgeon can seem like an eternity for a woman wanting to start a family.

Not to mention for years, the culture of plastic surgery wasn’t very welcoming to women. To be a successful female plastic surgeon in this time takes perseverance, self-confidence, and strength. That’s where Dr. Jennifer Walden comes in. She has eight years of experience in the field and loves the ability to help women achieve the results they seek. Dr. Walden grew up in Austin, Texas. Dr. Walden continued her career in that area for some time before deciding to move back to Austin, Texas. She specializes in many cosmetic procedures including eyelid lifts, rhinoplasties, facelifts, liposuction, and Botox.

Dr. Walden believes that even though women are seeking cosmetic enhancements to their bodies, they are not trying to have the same frame as every other woman. They are not trying to achieve the male stereotype Barbie -Doll physique. She makes a good point as many women seek cosmetic surgery to remove sagging skin, or to enhance deflated breasts. That is one reason that Dr. Walden proves that female surgeons can relate better to female patients. As a woman, it can be awkward showing a male surgeon how deflated the breast have become as a result of breastfeeding.
