Welcome to “Beauty and the Biz”, where we talk about the business and marketing side of plastic surgery.

I’m your host, Catherine Maley, author of “Your aesthetic practice – What your patients are saying”, and consultant to plastic surgeons to get them more patients and profits.

My guests today are the founders of Somenek & Pittman Advanced Plastic Surgery, offering “concierge care” in Washington, D.C.

Michael Somenek, MD is a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty and facelifts, while Troy Pittman is a board-certified plastic & reconstructive surgeon focusing on the breast and body.

So, it’s 2 specialists under one roof. They recently opened a fully-accredited, all-private surgical suite which happens to be steps away from the Fairmont hotel for those patients who choose to recover in luxury.

And, not only are they partners in business but also in life so we’ll learn more about that.
