Cape Coral and Southwest Florida Feature Stories
Written by Eric Taubert Wednesday, 10 February 2010 00:00
The human form has long been the primary subject matter of artists and poets in their exploration of beauty. The sleek shapes and inviting contours of attractive human faces and bodies surround us all day, every day. Movies, magazines, artwork, advertisements, and even our own communities and places of employment are increasingly populated with eye-catching examples of physical perfection. Sometimes it seems like everyone’s having work done…that’s because many are. Cosmetic surgery has become a truly commonplace option in our culture. Americans have embraced the opportunity to look and feel their very best. But, even though many aesthetic surgery procedures are routinely performed, the decision of which doctor to place your trust in still requires your serious consideration.
Kent V. Hasen, M.D., Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and Medical Director of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples, understands the importance of making informed choices when it comes to your cosmetic surgery decisions. As one of the most sought after aesthetic surgeons in South Florida, Dr. Hasen has an experience-based understanding and sensitivity towards the varied goals and concerns of the people who visit his office.
“Plastic Surgery has always been more than a profession to me,” states Dr. Hasen. “I’m helping people achieve results which are very important to them on an intimate and personal level. I believe my patients deserve the respect and professionalism of a doctor with empathy for their concerns. My office is composed of a well-trained team of aesthetic surgery industry providers working together and devoted to delivering the personal approach which has become the hallmark of my practice. If you’re looking for a plastic surgeon who cares about your well being, ask around, do your research, and see for yourself — when it comes to patient satisfaction, our office is unparalleled. We’re passionate about what we do, and it shows.”
Dr. Hasen is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon concentrating on cosmetic surgery of the face, breast and body. He received his medical training at Cornell University where he was elected to the AOA honor society. After medical school, Dr. Hasen was accepted into the extremely competitive general and plastic surgery integrated residency program at Northwestern University. During the seven year residency, Dr. Hasen won several prestigious awards for his presentations of clinical research.
Dr. Hasen is also an active member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. This is the leading organization of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons specializing in cosmetic surgery, and Dr. Hasen’s expertise has resulted in numerous nominations to serve on several prestigious committees within the organization. This allows Dr. Hasen to stay current with the latest, proven techniques and trends in plastic surgery to help improve patient outcomes, minimize downtime, and reduce the appearance of incisions and scars.
“One of the biggest concerns many patients have is what they will look like after surgery. In the past, this could be a challenging question to answer. Now, technology has finally evolved to the point where we are able to offer a valid answer to that most important of questions. Here at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples, we’re proud to be the first practice in Southwest Florida to offer our patients access to the Portrait 3D Surgical Simulation Platform. This cutting edge computer technology integrates science with 3D imaging, allowing me to show my patients what their surgical outcome may look like. This technology is especially beneficial to our patients who are undecided about what size breast implants they may want. Now we can portray the ‘new you’ from any angle, and even offer side by side images to compare pre-op and post-op results. This is just one of the many ways we’re helping to make the entire cosmetic surgery procedure less intimidating for our patients.
Our Naples location also houses our very own, private, operating room suite which is fully accredited by the AAAASF. This type of voluntary accreditation represents the Gold Standard with regards to equipment, operating room safety, personnel, and surgeon credentials. Our patients are incredibly appreciative of the reassurance and privacy afforded by such first-rate facilities. Another reason to choose Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples for your cosmetic surgery needs is the fact that we have our own closely knit operating room staff composed of seasoned veterans which have worked side by side, day in and day out, for several years. In a hospital or large outpatient surgery center setting, a surgeon might get stuck with the scrub tech and nurse of the day who know nothing about cosmetic surgery. But, when you visit Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples, you get a dedicated team with a lot of experience working together in tandem.
Whether you’re considering facial rejuvenation, breast enhancement, or body contouring — we’re able to engage you with an informative consultation and the best options when it comes to the actual procedures. At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples we are committed to providing you with optimal patient safety and the highest possible standards of patient care before, during, and after your surgery.
We also offer a wide array of medical spa procedures and products at our intimate and discrete Naples office. From injectables, to laser and radio energy technology, to facials and peels — we’ve got all the resources we need to help you look your best. We also carry several lines of skin care products and supplements designed to help protect the skin while replenishing and restoring damage caused by age and exposure to the elements.”
Dr. Hasen was named to the “Top 40 Under 40” as one of “Southwest Florida’s Rising Stars” by Gulfshore Business Magazine. Recently, Dr. Hasen was an invited speaker at the annual national meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in Chicago where he presented his work to over 2000 Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Hasen also gives back to the community by offering free breast cancer and skin cancer reconstruction to uninsured patients through the Bosom Buddies Breast Cancer Charity and the Collier County P.L.A.N. Charity.
Since opening in 2002, Dr Hasen’s well-respected practice has gained in reputation and stature. Although his practice continues to grow, Dr. Hasen refuses to compromise on the distinct brand of personal service to which he attributes his early success.
“The night after a surgery, I call my patients to make sure any questions they, or their caregivers, may have are all answered. If there are any immediate concerns, I will even make a house call to make sure everything is alright. Each of my patients gets access to my personal cell phone number so they can reach me directly with after-hour concerns, rather than dealing with a frustrating and distant answering service. When I’m discussing a personal approach to patient care, these are the details I’m talking about. This is what helps to set my practice apart from all the others out there. This is what my patients appreciate, and this is what they deserve.”
