COURTESY OF THE HAWORTH INSTITUTE EMBRACING ARTISTRY 54 OCTOBER 2017 | MedEsthetics "It's a beautiful place, and all our services are under one roof—the surgical center, my clinic and our new noninva- sive center, Self Centered Aesthetics," says Dr. Haworth. "Patients always asked us, 'What else can you do?' 'How do I maintain this?' It just doesn't make sense nowadays not to offer the full-range of aesthetic treatments." In addition to laser treatments and injectables performed by Dr. Haworth and his R.N., celebrity esthetician John Tew performs signature facials and naturopathic doctor Matea Polisoto, who goes by "Dr. Matea," offers IV therapy and nutrition counseling. "Like John, she has a very big follow- ing in Beverly Hills and beyond," says Dr. Haworth. "She is involved with IV therapy, which helps augment the pre- and postoperative surgical experience, and optimizes healing. "The people working with me are just as important as the surgeon—it's all about having a good team," he says. The Frustrated Artist Born in Los Angeles and educated in England, Dr. Haworth has a somewhat unusual background for a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. "My dad was English and spent World War II in London selling bootleg whiskey during the Blitzkrieg. My mother and her family lived in Holland during the Ger- man occupation," he says. Following the war, both of his parents immigrated to the United States seeking opportunities, of which there were few in post-war Europe. "They met, and I was born in Los Angeles. But my dad always wanted me to be in England eventually," says Dr. Haworth. When he was 9 years old, he and his parents drove to Central America and boarded a cargo ship to England. During his school years in London, Dr. Haworth became enamored with the arts. "I always drew—and I was very good at a young age. In University I joined band. I was really into the arts, and that's what I wanted to pursue," he says. "But my parents, being war babies, wanted a doctor in the family and I was their only child." During a road trip prior to his fi nal year at the university, he shared his goals with his parents. "We were in a VW bus and they said, 'We'll disown you if you become an art- ist. Make your decision'—it was really bizarre," he says. His mind fl ashed back to a BBC interview of Kurt Wagner, MD, he had seen when he was 13. "I said, 'Then I'll be a plastic surgeon,' having no idea what was involved in that." He came back to the U.S. and enrolled in medical school at the University of Southern California. Following gradua- tion, he completed a fi ve-year general surgery residency at Cornell Medical Center in New York. Dr. Haworth made Dr. Haworth's design philosophy for the new Haworth Institute was nature meets high-tech. COURTESY OF THE HAWORTH INSTITUTE
