This month- Dr Ashish Dutta’s most recent achievement is of particular importance considering he has passed his ‘American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery Examination’ which was held on March 7, 2018 in Dubai. This makes him one of the few surgeons in the UK equipped with this qualification. Results have just been announced on April 18-2018.
Dr Ashish Dutta is a renowned practising cosmetic surgeon born in India and obtained his medical degree MBBS in Kolkata in 1986. He came to the UK to further his skills, train and gain experience in surgical specialities.
Initially he dedicated himself to working with different surgical specialities for the next 7 years including trauma, emergency medicine and Orthopaedics thus understanding the various aspects of surgery, and it was in 2000 when Dr Dutta was invited to attend his first training session in laser surgery by Lumenis.
This experience further motivated him to establish his first clinic in Sunderland in the same year under the name of the Aesthetic Beauty Centre and he started to focus his practise on non-surgical and laser procedures. Aesthetic Beauty Centre expanded as a brand and opened its second clinic in Newcastle in 2004, which now acts as the group headquarters.
Simultaneously in 2000, Dr Dutta also obtained admitting rights at South Tyneside NHS Trust to do cosmetic procedures. He undertook a fellowship in Cosmetic Surgery and subsequently sat for the board certification exam of the International Division of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ID-ABCS) through the World Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (WAOCS). Dr Dutta was a founding member for the World Academy for Cosmetic Surgery and secretary of the organisation from 2010-2016.
During his initial years of medical training, Dr Ashish Dutta saw that there was not much reference to any kind of cosmetic/aesthetic surgery and this made him want to pursue this field further. His keen interest in aesthetics of the body and the science behind it led him to develop his professional skills in the Cosmetic Surgery domain. During this time, he was one of the first doctors to bring Fraxel Laser and Thermage Skin tightening treatments to the UK, utilising knowledge from his B-Tech in Advance Skin Laser.
Dr Ashish Dutta is a visionary and has always understood people’s needs to be able to look physically youthful and he endeavours to meet his patient-client relationships with very realistic expectations by thorough one-to-one consultations with each and every one of them.
After 16 years in the cosmetic surgery field, Dr Dutta and his team uphold the ethical and holistic values of Aesthetic Beauty Centre (ABC) by giving attention to detail with each and every patient who walks in through the door by building relationships with them and understanding their needs, before the right cosmetic solution is provided. He has also through his vast experiences, excellently equipped to meet patient expectations alongside his philosophy of realistic results.
Dr Ashish Dutta says “In medicine most people come to see us due to illness or a health matter; however in cosmetic medicine or surgery we try to look after the patient’s aesthetic needs, improve their confidence and help them get on with their lives.”
Dr Dutta’s pursuit for excellence takes him to various courses and conferences nationally and internationally. He can frequently be found giving lectures and upgrading his skills to remain at the forefront of the cosmetic surgery scenario in the UK. As a dedicated doctor, a keen learner and a people’s person he is one of the most respected practitioners in the industry. Dr Dutta also loves to share his knowledge and experiences with other fellow doctors, nurses who work or associate closely with him on a daily basis.
He is passionate about cosmetic medicine and surgery and also devotes a fair amount of time to newly formed Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP). It is this dedication that has been acknowledged recently by his peers at The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery when he was made a Fellow with the AACS in October 2016. The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) is committed to advancing the multispecialty, global discipline of cosmetic surgery and medicine for the benefit of patients and practitioners and Dr Ashish Dutta is one of the most highly regarded surgeons in the industry.
Dr Dutta is particularly noted for his ́open style ́ of consultations and his approachable, professional manner.
He says- “In cosmetic surgery we see patients often asking for treatments or results that are not achievable, we try to help them with managing their expectations before committing to go ahead with any treatment.”
Under the aegis of the brand’s founder, Dr Ashish Dutta, the Aesthetic Beauty Centre is now focusing on expansions, as well as developing new and innovative ways of training new practitioners. In addition to this, his clinics in the North-East were given the “Centre of Excellence” by Key Opinion Leaders for collaborating with various aesthetic industry partners.
ABC’s (Aesthetic Beauty Centre) mantra is to create an ethical and holistic environment where each approach is tailor made to deliver the desired outcome for every patient. Dr Ashish Dutta envisages the brand to be forward thinking and constantly evolving with a patient focused approach within a caring, comforting and professional ambience.
