Pikeville Medical Center’s (PMC) Plastic Surgery Center was recently recognized nationwide as an Allergan Gold Account.

Allergan is a global pharmaceutical leader focused on developing, manufacturing, and commercializing branded pharmaceuticals for patients.

Allergan markets a portfolio of leading brands and best-in-class products primarily focused on four key therapeutic areas including medical aesthetics, eye care, central nervous system and gastroenterology.

“Gold account status is awarded to the top 15 percent of accounts in the United States, said PMC Plastic Surgeon, Dimitrios Danikas, MD, FACS. ” It is a great honor to be recognized nationwide.”

PMC has seen a significant increase in patients seeking services for Botox® and Juvederm®.

There is a significant difference between Botox® and Juvederm®. Both treatments can be effective at smoothing out the lines on your face but do not work on the same kind of wrinkles.

Juvederm® is used for wrinkles that are present when your face is at rest, whereas Botox® is used for wrinkles that appear on movement.

Both Injectable treatments are non-surgical.

“A patient who is choosing an aesthetic provider should be seeking a provider with experience and skill,” said Dr. Danikas.

Dr. Danikas is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

He specializes in body contouring, Botox® & fillers, breast augmentation & reduction, breast reconstruction, endoscopic brow lifts, face lifts, liposuction, rhinoplasties and tummy tucks.

PMC Physician Assistant, Danita Thompson specializes in aesthetics. She provides care, along with Dr. Danikas, to their growing number of patients seeking services.

“It is an honor to be recognized by Allergan, said Thompson. We take pride in helping our patients feel better about their appearance.”

She says it is a great feeling helping people see a better version of themselves.

PMC offers breast, body, and facial procedures, fillers and injectable and noninvasive services.
