LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 1, 2021) — Deciding to make cosmetic enhancements to the face or body is a personal decision that cannot be made lightly. UK Healthcare is making this experience as stress-free as possible with the opening of the new location of the Aesthetics Center at the Turfland campus.

UK HealthCare Aesthetics Center is Lexington’s premier location for aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery and nonsurgical treatments. The Aesthetics Center treats patients with concerns from enhancing features to surgical options for counteracting the physical results of aging, childbirth, weight loss or a medical condition. The skilled team of cosmetic surgeons, nurses and aestheticians at UK HealthCare Aesthetics Center provide solutions that match the patient’s goals.

“This new center will become the destination for central Kentuckians desiring to improve or enhance their look,” said Dr. David Drake, co-director for the Aesthetics Center.

The new location offers a wide array of both nonsurgical and surgical cosmetic procedure options. Some of the services offered include Botox treatments, dermal fillers and lip reshaping, as well as surgical procedures such as body contouring, face lift and fat removal surgery.

The Aesthetics Center is located on the second floor in the UK Healthcare Turfland campus at 2195 Harrodsburg Road in Lexington. The campus hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. TeleCare appointments are also available.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
