Mona Endow
Aesthetic Nurse RN, RNFA

Dr. Yamini and Dr. Svehlak are excited to introduce our very talented and experienced new cosmetic nurse specialist, Mona Endow, RN.

With more than 30 years of medical-grade cosmetic experience, Mona is one of the mostly highly experienced and trained cosmetic specialists in Los Angeles.

Dr Yamini: “Dr. Svehlak and I first met Mona Endow in 2002 as we started our plastic surgery practices. Mona was a clinical instructor who was assigned by the cosmetic manufacturers to teach new plastic surgeons and dermatologists how to perform cosmetic injections. Her expertise at the time were fillers and botulinum toxins similar to BOTOX®. We have closely followed her expanding career over the last 16 years in our industry. She has had a very impressive resume working for multiple cosmetic device and pharmaceutical companies, educating doctors on the latest cutting-edge products and techniques. Prior to that, Mona had over 10 years of experience assisting some of the most elite plastic surgeons in Los Angeles and the world such as Drs. Harvey Zarem, Harry Glassman, and Frank Ryan. She has tremendous experience with cosmetic procedures and the professional care of plastic surgery patients.”

Dr. Svehlak: “As our practice has become more focused on surgeries over the last few years, Dr. Yamini and I have been in pursuit of an elite cosmetic injector and someone skilled in the latest and best non-surgical cosmetic treatments. We are privileged to have one of the most experienced and knowledgeable cosmetic experts join our practice.”

Mona’s responsibilities will include assisting us during surgeries as a Certified First Assistant. She will also help us take care of our patients before and after surgeries. Furthermore, she will take over many of the routine injections for our patients. Drs. Svehlak and Yamini will continue to do the more complex and challenging cases.

In addition, Mona brings in new exciting skills and treatments to our practice. Click here to view the complete menu of cosmetic treatments she will provide.
