Nowadays, when self-acceptance and self-esteem seem more dependent on looks and appearance than the overall personality, cosmetic surgery and getting ‘work done’ is becoming normalized, main-streamed, more accessible, and acceptable. While going under the knife might not seem like an easy decision, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Cameron Chesnut’s holistic approaches and thought processes highlight both sides of the coin, and patients are traveling from all over the globe to experience his approach.
A native of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Dr. Chesnut majored in Biology and Physiological Nutrition at Washington State University, later attended the University of Washington School of Medicine, and completed both his residency and fellowship in facial cosmetic surgery at UCLA.
Keeping up with the ever-changing world of cosmetic enhancement is challenging enough, yet part of Dr. Chesnut’s position as one of the nation’s best MD, double board-certified, and fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeons is redefining and redirecting the field of facial cosmetic surgery. And he does it in an unconventional and unique style, keeping his procedures as minimally invasive and safer as possible. He’s an innovator who doesn’t like to take the usual route. Instead, he constantly explores opportunities to advance the field of cosmetics and dermatology with highly effective approaches that have rarely been worked on before. This innovative approach is apparent in his signature EnigmaLift and VidaLift procedures.
Introducing regenerative medicine and biohacking as a part of aesthetics further proves his ‘out of the box’ thinking. Beyond just performing the cosmetic surgeries, Dr. Chesnut significantly focuses on his patients’ recoveries and helps them expedite the recovery process. “Using biohacking after these procedures is a way to improve surgical results and recovery,” says Dr. Chesnut of OPTIM clinic, a ‘recovery lab’ simply dedicated to optimized solutions for regenerative medicine and biohacking.
Unlike others in the field, he is also very keen on keeping things natural and realistic. “Up here in the Northwest, patients want subtle changes,” says Dr. Chesnut, who is also the founder of Clinic 5C, a cosmetic surgical practice in the Pacific Northwest. Progressing into a household name, Clinic 5C is a go-to destination for clients all over the world looking for cosmetic surgical services.
Even though it sometimes goes against the norm and qualifies as unpopular opinion, Dr. Chesnut doesn’t shy away from talking about the ethical use of cosmetic processes and their natural and healthy alternatives. For instance, using one’s own fat for volumizing purposes can provide a better and healthier option than botox and fillers as, according to Dr. Chesnut, it also comes with a host of regenerative medicine benefits.
Credited as one of the top eyelid surgery experts in the world, Dr. Chesnut addresses all different aspects of aging, incorporating all the intricate and subtle details which are often overlooked in eye surgeries. Moreover, being a regular contributor to the surgical literature, he often provides his expertise for media publications and articles on surgical and cosmetic innovations and research.
Dr. Cameron Chesnut’s works are proof that cosmetic surgical procedures can be non-invasive and healthy and still yield incredible results. Head over to his Clinic 5C’s website to get a better look into his services.
