BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 4, 2012) - NBC News reports that a dermatology and cosmetic surgery practice has opened in the Four Seasons Residences Austin. An untraditional location for such a healthcare facility, this move has provided a heightened level of convenience to patients. Dr. Harrison Lee of Beverly Hills, who is a facial reconstruction surgeon who also offers cosmetic procedures to his patients, believes that this is the start of a positive new trend.
Plastic surgery offices are typically located in the suburbs, away from the city center. Lorley Musiol, who is the Director of the Four Seasons Residences Austin, believes that the downtown location will provide a wonderful opportunity for patients who live in the city. "It's a major convenience," comments Musiol. "It's rare to find a plastic surgeon in a downtown market. So this should appeal to hotel guests such as women whose husbands are here for a meeting and to people who work and live in the city."
Gregory Nikolaidis, the founder of the practice, notes that the growing development of condominiums will also play a role in attracting patients. "It's an ideal location in the central business district that provides easy access to downtown professionals, as well as the many residents of the rapidly expanding condominium developments of Austin," asserts Nikolaidis.
The new office will offer a wide array of services, according to the article. Botox, chemical peels, liposuction, breast augmentation, and other services are expected to be extended to patients within the next year.
"At a time when having cosmetic procedures performed is becoming more mainstream," comments Dr. Lee of Beverly Hills, "people are looking not only for the best doctor to perform their procedures, but also for the convenience and comfort of the facility where the procedure will be performed. Fully accredited facilities inside hotels can provide patients with many benefits. They reduce travel time to and from doctor's facilities. They allow friends and family the ability to stay close by. In cases where minor procedures are performed a patient can return to their own room quickly to relax and recuperate with minimal exposure to others. Additionally, patients are close to their doctor's office should they require additional attention or treatment."
The article notes that, according to Bjorn Hanson, the Divisional Dean of New York University's Preston Robert Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism, and Sports Management, the trend of creating a partnership between medical professionals and hotels originally surfaced in the 1970s. Dr. Lee of Beverly Hills is looking forward to seeing how this partnership will impact both medical offices and hotels.
Dr. Harrison Lee of Beverly Hills is a facial reconstruction surgeon who also offers cosmetic surgery, including Botox, liposuction, and laser treatments. Dr. Lee runs a private practice in Beverly Hills, through which he provides the services and care that his patients need to enhance their confidence, emotional wellbeing, and appearance. Additionally, Dr. Lee is the Founder of the Beverly Hills Medical Center for Cosmetic Surgery and is triple board-certified.
