The gorgeous white dogwood trees are beginning to bloom in Atlanta, the beautiful pink Dogwoods won’t be far behind,oh how Emory University Medical School and undergraduate campus have grown since Dr. Persky attended medical school (’80), and how it was nice to catch up with colleagues, and a classmate from our days in medical school. We love Hotlanta!

Dr. Persky gave 9 presentations over the 3 day meeting, one of which was entitled, “What is Beauty?…Beauty Secrets. “The consensus at the meeting was that our cosmetic patients are requesting and deserve natural rejuvenating results. We ask our new patients to bring in photos of when they were 25 to 30 years old…When their face had the optimal fat volume to support their facial skin, allowing light to fall on the face without harsh shadows but rather light accentuating smooth curves that pleasantly transition from one facial zone to the next. Their jaw, maxilla, and other facial bones had just begun to think about reabsorbing and changing shape in an aging manner. Their skin had not yet shown the signs of sun damage. With the goal of returning our patient towards that youthful healthy appearance, we use our artistic vision of world beauty to help our patients achieve their facial aesthetic goal. Dr. Sarmela Sunder and Dr. Michael Persky will soon be speaking on “World Beauty.”
