The Zelken Institute for Aesthetic Medicine and Wellness is a one-stop shop led by elite physicians who provide a thoughtful and comprehensive approach to aesthetic medicine. Dr. Todd Newman and Dr. Jonathan Zelken collaborate to generate wellness solutions that combine elements of surgery, hormonal optimization, skin care, and non-surgical therapies to achieve and preserve a beautiful outcome.
The practice is nestled in the heart of Newport Beach amid a lively community of restaurants, shops and services designed to make your visit to the doctor more experiential, inspiring and relaxing. “We provide leading edge, patient-centric, evidence-based treatments designed to provide a thoughtful and comprehensive approach to aesthetic surgery, medicine and wellness,” says Dr. Newman. Dr. Newman, the 2017 Orange County Medical Association Physician of Excellence, attended the University of Southern California and Boston University School of Medicine. He completed an internship in surgery and a residency in Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at UCLA-Ronald Reagan Medical Center, and went on to serve as an anesthesiologist and critical care physician at Hoag Memorial Hospital, in Newport Beach.
After spending a decade at Hoag, Dr. Newman pursued his dream for many years to revolutionize how patients care for themselves, and receive care, before surgery. “Surgery is a major undertaking much like running a marathon or climbing a mountain. People train for these activities – they diet, exercise, supplement themselves with oral and infused vitamins and they talk to the best coaches,” he explains. “Why shouldn’t a patient’s overall wellness, as well as their surgical
and anesthetic preparation, be treated like training for an elite competition?”
To support this concept, the Zelken Institute offers a “Pre-Surgical Optimization Protocol” available for any patient having any surgery, not just those having surgery at the Institute. We also offer Comprehensive Anesthetic Care before, during, and after surgery. Other services include infusion and injection therapy, women’s health, hormone replacement therapy, metabolic evaluation and weight management, and concierge wellness services.
“A keen surgeon knows that a scalpel alone cannot cure aging, and non-surgical providers must acknowledge that fillers and toxins alone are not a cure-all either,” says Dr. Newman. “At the Zelken Institute, you can choose to meet a surgeon, anesthesiologist, and wellness expert during your consultation.” At the Institute, you will have the opportunity to combine surgical and nonsurgical therapies recommended and performed by board-certifi ed doctors. Zelken Institute provides a comprehensive menu of cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, including FaceTite, BodyTite, facelift, rhinoplasty, body and breast enhancement. “I am obsessed with symmetry and harmony. I am an artist and appreciate the craft of plastic surgery,” says Dr. Zelken. He is well-respected for his commitment to facial trauma and complex facial reconstruction. He also excels at revision facelift, rhinoplasty, and eyelid surgery. Dr. Zelken was recognized as Super Doctors Rising Star in both 2017 and 2018, a title earned by the top 2.5% of surgeons of any metropolitan area. Dr. Zelken obtained his undergraduate degree in Biology from Cornell University and went on to pursue a degree in medicine at Tufts University. After graduating at the top of his class, Dr. Zelken was one of two people selected for plastic surgery training at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Hopkins was named America’s #1 hospital 21 years in a row!
A skilled and compassionate doctor who is universally loved by patients and respected by peers, Dr. Zelken is recognized as a prolific author of textbook chapters and scientific articles. Over the years, he has hand-selected techniques from a wide array of mentors that allow him to achieve optimal results and outcomes.
“I love observing the physical and emotional transformation of my patients,” he explains. “I am very thankful I have the ability to impact the lives of patients, not only before and during, but long after surgery.” Dr. Zelken is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
