About Illume Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa

Empowering patients with confidence

Illume Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa was founded by Drs. Mark F. Blake, Thomas G. Korkos and Christopher J. Hussussian in 2019 to provide our patients with access to the top plastic surgeons in the Milwaukee region and offer them the widest scope of treatment options. Since then, we have grown to become the Milwaukee area’s largest local cosmetic surgery and medspa practice with three locations in Franklin, Milwaukee, and Waukesha. We provide more than cosmetic surgery at our in-house, nationally accredited surgical centers. In addition, we offer the full spectrum of beauty services, including injectables such as Botox and lip filler, skincare, and laser treatments, weight loss, and more. 

 At Illume, our premier board-certified plastic surgeons guide a dedicated, compassionate team focused on patient safety and treating patients with dignity and warmth. Patients come to us to look and feel their best, and we are committed to that goal for the long term.

more about our merger

“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. Our staff is dedicated to providing you with excellent care and friendly service in a confidential atmosphere. We pride ourselves on combining a professional consultation with realistic expectations of the changes that you would like to make to your appearance.

Our newest addition to Illume, our Franklin (formerly L’Image) office opened October 2022, offering a full medspa and clinic space for minimally invasive surgical procedures.

By obtaining and adhering to these standards, you can be assured you are having your procedure done at a surgical center that is qualified and capable.

Choosing A Plastic Surgeon

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.
