For Dr. Nico Domingo, RefinedLooks’ newest plastic surgeon, honesty really is the best policy. He explains, “It is not uncommon for clients to come into the office with fantastical desires and expectations. You’ve got to get in your clients’ shoes to really discover what they want to achieve, then decide together how to get there as safely and effectively as possible.” Finding realistic, sustainable pathways to help his clients achieve their goals – whether that’s through a surgical procedure, Botox, or another aesthetic treatment – is all in a day’s work for Dr. Domingo. He’s thankful to have found a home in Chattanooga, and he’s looking forward to “forming long-lasting relationships with my clients and people in this community.”
“Dr. Domingo truly appreciates you not only as a client but also as a person. He makes you instantly feel comfortable with his smile, and he really listens to what you have to say and works with you to make sure you come out feeling and looking your best.” – C. Powell
1. What influenced you to pursue your career?
I come from a family of physicians, so from very early on I knew I wanted to follow in their footsteps. Of the physicians in my family, my Lolo (grandfather) and my mom are my greatest influences. Their hard work, dedication, and interminable need to care for patients are what motivates me to do the same every day.
2. What would you consider to be your main strengths?
I’m deeply interested in innovation, design, and construction, and I consider myself imaginative with a meticulous attention to detail. This is evident in my work and everyday life.
3. How do you develop a plan for each client?
I think it is extremely important to listen to your clients and delve deep into what it is they truly desire. Once that has been established, the plan is formulated together to ensure we have discussed all options to determine what can and can’t be done. This allows all concerns to be addressed and guarantees that we both get the results we are looking for.
4. What’s the most rewarding part of your profession?
It’s seeing my clients out in the community, or on social media, looking and feeling their finest and exuding self-confidence.
5. What is your best advice for clients?
Know you are beautiful. You don’t need a plastic surgeon to tell you that; we are just here to help you believe it.
