With retirement in the distant future, Fagien is enjoying his place in aesthetic medicine and plans on continuing to write and innovate on his own terms. “I’ve enjoyed maintaining the reputation of a high-integrity practice; one in which my colleagues, the industry and surgeons outside of the country are interested in what I have to say and get me involved because they know I will do the right thing,” says Fagien. “I like being known for being one of the best at what I do. I try to maintain that level because I feel good about it. I can go home and go to sleep and be proud of what I have done because I did it by working hard at it. I feel that way every night.”
