Essential Aesthetics is selective in its choice of specialists.
In addition to the expertise and experience, one of the qualities we look for is 'a heart for people'.

Meet Professor Philippe Levan

Essential Aesthetics is proud to work with the French plastic surgeon Professor Philippe Levan. Professor Philippe Levan is recognized as a surgeon in the Netherlands as well as in France. Levan has an eye for refinement in aesthetic surgery and has been performing various procedures for over 25 years. He specializes in rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, facelifts, blepharoplasty, liposuction, abdominoplasty, buttock surgery and reconstructive surgery. He knows how delicate the human body is and how optimal care for each patient and precision work are prerequisites for an optimal result.

He is a highly experienced and renowned specialist and presently serves as the Head of the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery of the Paris-Saint Joseph Hospital Group. In addition to his surgical practice, Professor Levan trains international plastic surgery talent in collaboration with the University of Paris Descartes. Professor Levan is a member of all relevant organizations in his field and has operated in multiple hospitals, including Chef de Clinique. His love for his profession is also reflected in the fact that he founded the Group for Advancement in Plastic Surgery (GAPS) and Wikiplastic, the online platform for sharing videos about plastic surgery.

Professor Levan strives for perfection at all times: “I consider every single surgery as a new challenge with the goal to achieve the very best results for my patient. For me this means: the best possible aesthetic outcome and the most natural result possible; maximum fulfilment of the patient’s wishes and the shortest possible post-operative recovery time with the least pain. For me, it goes without saying that use the most recent and exclusively scientifically proven techniques. I am always open, honest and clear providing information to my patients, with plenty of room to ask questions. Management of expectations is crucial to prevent disappointment. I want each and every patient to feel completely safe, understood and cared for at all times. Patients’ trust is crucial to me.”

Although he has mastered plastic and cosmetic surgery across the board, Professor Levan has gained worldwide fame for his long-standing expertise and innovations in the field of butt augmentation. He is a true pioneer of remodelling. Not satisfied with the butt implants at the time, Levan developed a particularly successful butt implant as of 2011, the “Biconvex gluteal implant”, together with Sebbin laboratories. These exceptionally high-quality silicone gel-filled implants are much more flexible and easier to insert into the body than other products on the market. On top of that and very important: they feel soft and natural and stay in place. With his innovative surgical techniques and decades of experience, Professor Levan can achieve particularly good results with this implant.

Our patients are very satisfied indeed: their reviews speak volumes. Essential Aesthetics is therefore proud that this specialist has chosen our clinic to work with. With combining our forces through this collaboration, we aim to raise the level of plastic surgery in the Netherlands to the highest level.
