About Illume Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa
Illume Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa was formed when the Clinic of Cosmetic Surgery in Glendale, merged with the Spa at Plastic Surgery Associates in Waukesha, joining two of the longest-serving cosmetic plastic surgery groups in Milwaukee.
The newly formed group is headed by Drs. Mark Blake, Thomas Korkos and Christopher Hussussian. The merger provides an opportunity for our patients to see a Plastic Surgeon at two office and two in-house ambulatory surgical locations in Glendale and Waukesha.
“With this merger, we are able to combine resources and provide patients the most comprehensive cosmetic care from board certified plastic surgeons and certified estheticians. We’re bringing the most advanced technology and most experienced providers into one premier cosmetic practice,” says Dr. Blake.
The new practice boasts two fully credentialed surgery centers and complete Medi-spas that feature aesthetic services, laser and light therapy, BOTOX Cosmetic, dermal fillers and more.
The size of the new group is one of the 25 largest Allergan BOTOX injectors in the country, and provides better pricing to patients and increased access for visits close to home. “We want to set the bar for the practice of cosmetic medicine in Milwaukee and make sure patients are seeing reputable and capable surgeons in modern and fully equipped facilities,” says Dr. Korkos.
Dr. Hussussian agrees, “Our merger allows both offices to provide their patients more convenience while maintaining the highest level of care and providing the best outcome possible.

No matter what type of plastic surgery you’re considering, one of the most important factors in its success is the surgeon you choose. Although it may seem hard to believe, some of the physicians who are performing cosmetic surgery today have had no formal surgical training at all. It’s advisable to consider the following points before scheduling a consultation: Find out if the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) has certified him or her. Surgeons with this certification have completed a minimum of five years of surgical training following medical school, including a plastic surgery residency program. During this intensive program, surgeons learn to perform surgical procedures for the entire body and face. At the same time, they develop their technical skill and aesthetic judgment. After training, a surgeon must pass comprehensive oral and written exams before being granted certification. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, require their members to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Ask about the surgeon’s hospital privileges Even if you are planning to have your surgery in your doctor’s office or at a surgery center, it is important to find out if your surgeon has operating privileges in an accredited hospital for the same procedure you would like to have performed. Before granting privileges, hospital review committees evaluate a surgeon’s training and competency for specific procedures.
