When you set out to start your career some of the most important things that one to your success are the things that motivate you to be better than you were. For some people that drive to succeed is simply not strong enough and their dreams fall by the wayside. Dr. Mark McKenna never felt as though that was an option for his dreams. A CrunchBase article entitled “A Glimpse into What Drives Atlanta Entrepreneur Dr. Mark McKenna” discusses his budding medical aesthetics company and the drive that he has to help it succeed.
For a very early age, Dr. Mark McKenna knew that he wanted to contribute to the medical field. To that end, he enrolled himself Tulane medical school where he graduated and began work as both a surgeon and general medical practitioner. While he was initially committed to the medical field there was always a pull towards something more entrepreneurial. He had felt a desire to grow something from the ground up after seeing the medical practice that his father held. This spirit is one of the contributing factors that helped him create and then sell ShapeMed to the company Lifetime Fitness Inc. for a substantial profit.
His newest endeavor is OVME. OVME is all about elective surgery and the process of making it a more patient-focused experience. The reason why something like OVME was so important to Dr. Mark McKenna is that he had worked in the medical field and he saw the growing need for professionals who were patient-focused in this field. It can become a little jailing to work in an industry where a lot of the work is not necessary. The problem is that even though the procedures might say that they are elective it does not mean that it’s an optional thing for the patient. They may be engaging in this process for several reasons, and these doctors could potentially be changing their lives. Dr. Mark McKenna has created a way for professionals to provide a better standard of care for these individuals through his practice OVME. It is his hope that his legacy will impact many facets of healthcare.
Atlanta is about to get a lot more beautiful. Renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Mckenna, a pioneer in the field of Medical Aesthetics, has just announced the opening of his new, state-of-the-art facility in Buckhead. OVME, pronounced of me, is a “medical aesthetic experience” featuring four luxurious and private treatment rooms, offering all the latest in treatments.
Dr. Mark Mckenna, a graduate of Tulane Medical School, has always had an itch to innovate. Rather than follow the traditional routes through the medical field, upon graduation in 1999, Mckenna went into real estate. When Hurricane Katrina cut a tragic swath through his territory, Mckenna decided to make a change. He moved to Atlanta and made his first attempt at medical entrepreneurship, opening a chain of cosmetic treatment, nutrition, and weight counseling offices, calling his new venture ShapeMed. He sold the business to a chain of gyms, continuing to work with the company for another year, but he missed the challenges and rewards of running his own business. Out of that, OVME was born.
Dr. Mark Mckenna first envisioned his new venture as an Uber-like service for Botox patients. He foresaw a time when patients would pull out their smartphones, and with a few swipes of an app, have an appointment for a house call. While the initial plan was eventually found to be unworkable, for now, it did get Mckenna’s innovative mind churning. OVME 2.0 was built on a deconstructed vision of medical aesthetics that is client-focused, and highly curated to the client’s needs.
The experience at OVME is highly customizable, with Dr. Mark Mckenna and his team providing one-on-one consultations to create care-plans that are personal and focused on long-term results. OVME also provides a comprehensive series of membership packages, at different pricing levels, that include exclusive discounts, access to special events, free monthly treatments, and, for those busy Atlanta professionals, same-day Botox appointments.
OVME, located at 3167 Peachtree Road NE, in Atlanta, opened its doors on March 1st, and Dr. Mark Mckenna and his staff are sure to keep innovating and designing a one-of-a kind medical aesthetic experience.
Mark Mofid is a doctor and plastic surgeon who is working to change the way that gluteal augmentation is looked at by the public. He was trained at Johns Hopkins University and Harvard and has always been an innovator in the industry he works in. He has always adhered to strict medical safety practices and has a sterling reputation because of this, and his detailed knowledge of anatomy and muscles in the body has allowed him to make advancements where others have not. Mark Mofid has long been developing new ways to approach gluteal augmentation, and one of the ways he has helped is by designing a new gluteal implant that not only looks better than outdated implants, but that also works better.
When Mark Mofid was asked about the best advice he has ever gotten as a physician, he commented that it was to always grow his business at a steady pace rather than moving ahead too quickly. He followed this advice by moving into a smaller building with 2 examination rooms. He has commented on the fact that this has helped to keep the overhead costs of everything down and that it also allowed him to grow his practice bit-by-bit as it was needed.
All of this has led to him being able to have the space and budget to do more research and be the innovator he is.
Mark Mofid has done all of the work so that his patients don’t have to worry about their gluteal augmentation surgery and all of the things that could go wrong. Instead, they are able to enjoy the fact that they will feel and look better without any complications. He has relied on the word of mouth of his satisfied patients to further his marketing efforts, and has talked about the fact that his website isn’t as optimized to be found in search as he would like it to be. This doesn’t appear to be a problem, because Mark Mofid always has a steady line of patients coming through the door who are seeking out the services of the very best in the gluteal augmentation industry.
