Dr kavouni says: As a surgical fellow I have been fascinated by the art of plastic and cosmetic surgery. It represented an excellent way of blending the aesthetic principles of the Hellenic cultural heritage with modern medicine! However I feel that cosmetic procedures are not to be taken lightly. There is a lot of responsibility and a great challenge to create individualised, natural results. It can be a life-changing experience but only when it is performed for the right reasons!
