Shaping the Future of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery in Louisville

January 2020

by: Dr. Julene Samuels

As I prepare to enter the 26th year of my surgical practice, I think back upon circumstances and events that have had the most impact in "shaping" my career as a cosmetic plastic surgeon...fitting that this month's TOPS is devoted to "Shaping Louisville."

I feel lucky to have chosen a career that combines both art and science, so that I can use whatever surgical talent and insight I may have to positively impact the lives of others. I hope I have done this through the years with style and a flare that is all my own, shaped as it has been by my mentors and past patients.

Treatment to External Labia and Vaginal Canal With CO2 Laser for Symptoms of Vulvovaginal Atrophy in Postmenopausal Women

May 2018

by: Julene B. Samuels,MD and Martin A. Garcia, MD

The past five years have witnessed a surge of interest in female wellness and specifically, vaginal rejuvenation, both surgical and nonsurgical. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) procedural statistics report an increase of 23% in surgical labiaplasty procedures performed in 2016 by plastic surgeons in the United States, compared to 2015 (the first year for which statistics were available).

It is estimated that 35% of plastic surgeons now offer surgical labiaplasty and performed over 10,000 procedures last year. Along with this newer area of surgical interest, there has also developed a rapid growth in the number of treatment options for nonsurgical vulvovaginal rejuvenation. For both cosmetic and functional reasons, increasing numbers of women have sought alternatives to traditional options (vaginal lubricants, topical or oral estrogen products, and hormone replacement therapy) for dealing with unwelcome vaginal changes of menopause and childbirth, by choosing among a host of energy-based treatment devices that have emerged.

TOPS Louisville Magazine article to get yuor hands looking young for Derby
A Show of Hands

April 2018

by: Christine Fellingham

Most of us spend a lot of energy and money focusing on above-the-neck anti-aging measures, while what's below the wrist can give us away. "A woman can look ten or fifteen years younger than her age and then you look at her hands," says Dr. Julene Samuels, a cosmetic surgeon in St. Matthews. "Age spots, visible veins and rough texture add those years back. And they're so easy to treat."

To the rescue: Laser treatments that can zap both bulging veins and discoloration, typically in a single treatment. "The Sciton BBL laser is incredibly effective at removing brown spots and smoothing texture," says Dr. Samuels. "And the Sciton vascular laser can treat vessels in one to three treatments."

She didn't tell her co-workers and she won't use her last name, but twenty-one-year-old Erin is one of over 12,000 women who had cosxmetic surgery last year to reduce and reshape their labia. And she can't wait to talk about it.

"I would do it a million times again," says Erin, a twenty-one-year-old local woman who had a labiaplasty performed by Dr. Jule Samuels, a St. Matthews cosmetic surgeon, last October. "It first became a problem in fifth grade," she says. "My doctor referred me to a gynecologist because I had enlarged labia that might have been the side effect of a medication. No one could ever do anything for me."

At Home With Her Horses by: Christine Fellingham

It's no wonder Julene Samuels is so excited to have a barn— and her two thoroughbreds and a quarter horse - right across the street. As a solo practitioner in a thriving cosmetic surgery practice, her days routinely start before 8:00 a.m. and end twelve to fourteen hours later: "It’s often dark when I get up and getting dark when I drive home," she laughs. Add to that the travel she does as an educator and consultant for several medical device companies and as a clinical investigator for Allergan, Syneron Candela, BTL and InMode and her enthusiasm over having daily access to her horses makes sense. "I still remember how excited I was when we fi rst moved out here and I could get up in the morning, walk across the street and feed the horses," she says. "There's something magical about mornings in a barn.... It makes the balance of my life work."

The Fastest-Growing Rejuvenation Procedure That No One Is Talking About

July, 2017

From TOPS Louisville Magazine

What's trending in the art and medicine of female intimate wellness? Dr. Julene Samuels shares the latest news that you might not have heard, yet.
It may come as a surprise to you, but one of the hottest trends in plastic surgery right now is labiaplasty, a surgical procedure used to trim excessive labia minora (the "inner lips" of the female vulva), labia majora (the "outer lips"), and labial "puff" procedures in which the loose or saggy tissue of the labia majora is filled or lifted. Nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation technologies now also exist that help women deal with unwelcome internal vaginal canal changes that occur with childbirth, aging, and menopause. While these are common problems, well over half of women may be unaware of current options available to them, but that’s changing rapidly.

Eight Ways to Get Your Derby Shine On by: Susan Gosselin

With a just a few weeks left to go, experts on beauty treatments and medical procedures say there’s still plenty of time to get your Derby shine on. The secret is to start thinking about your options now.

Here are the strategies and procedures they recommend before the big day.

"People are often afraid to book an appointmentwith a plastic surgeon, especially if they aren’t interested in surgery. But in my practice, we work with a lot with patients to help them develop a plan that works for them—their skin, their goals and their budget. For some patients, that is just using the right skin care products. For others, it could be fillers, peels, non-invasivelaser treatments, or surgery."

Study Shows CO2RE Intima Improves Vaginal Health with High Patient Satisfaction by: Kevin A. Wilson

Adding versatility and value to the CO2RE laser system for aesthetic rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction, the new CO2RE Intima module from Syneron Candela (Irvine, Calif.) provides physicians with a top tier technology for non-invasive vaginal tissue remodeling that's both patient and user-friendly, meeting a growing need in the field of women's intimate health and wellness. With the CO2RE Intima module physicians can remodel and restore the tissue of the vaginal wall and vulvar to improve not only the aesthetic appearance of women's external genitalia (including vulvar dystrophy and dyschromia), but overall functional vaginal health as well, providing a relatively inexpensive treatment with appeal for women of all ages.

"All women experience these changes at some point, and the previous treatment offerings do not compare with CO2RE Intima in terms of risk, downtime, side effects, compliance, safety or results."

(Or How To Get Rid Of Your Dreaded Turkey Neck)

November 01, 2016

From Tab's View

“Turkey neck”… that age-old cosmetic problem both men and women hate, a problem which has defied most nonsurgical treatment options, has finally met its match: Profound. In a single, simple in-office treatment, Profound is a reliable, predictable, scientifically proven way to nonsurgically improve skin quality of the face and neck, as well as truly contour away unwanted fat of the jowls and neck! Unlike other nonsurgical options such as Kybella, Venus Freeze, Exilis or CoolMini, Profound is a single in-office treatment with great results seen as soon as four weeks (although optimal results usually are seen at three to six months post-treatment).

From the Voice Tribune - Wes Kerrick

You'll never meet a condescending glance. The moment never comes when you need to worry about the doctor's decisions.

It's a straightforward place.

On the third floor of The Springs Medical Center on Dutchmans Parkway, Samuels treats her patients with "a skillful, caring approach, with a woman's touch."

The aesthetic plastic surgeon has a gift for putting people at ease. She attributes that gift to the fact that she is a woman practicing in a field where most patients are also women. She gets them.

Julene B. Samuels: M.D., Owner of A Woman's Touch

Originally from Danville, Kentucky, Julene did her medical residency in Dallas, then moved to Louisville with her husband Tom to be closer to their Kentucky family. After living in the Highlands for many years, they built a new home in Prospect. They have 19-year-old twin daughters, Lexie and Kaitlyn, who are students at the University of Kentucky.

Taking the easy path has never been Julene's style. "I've always been pretty focused," she says. "If someone said, 'This is really hard,' I'd say, 'Sign me up!'" She decided early on in high school that she wanted to be a doctor because it was so difficult. " I did try to talk myslef out of it for a time. I thought, 'I don't know if I want to do all that training.' so I did pharmacy as an undergrad. But I couldn't get it out of my system and went on to medical school."
