Dr. Kumar has built an extremely strong reputation in Middle Tennessee for his immense skill in injecting neurotoxins (Botox) and dermal fillers. He brings his exceptional bedside manner borne out of his years as an instructor at Empire Medical where he teaches other doctors and practitioners how to inject neurotoxins and fillers as well as PDO Threads, microneedling, and skin care.  He takes a great deal of time with each patient to ensure they are educated about their procedure and thrilled with the results.

Dr. Kumar is a proud father and is known as one of the kindest, most genuinely caring physicians that patients have ever known. He is an old-school physician, with modern-day, cutting-edge training, and is driven as a devoted doctor in the purest sense.

After working as a family practice physician for more than fifteen years, Dr. Kumar shifted his focus more toward medical aesthetics.  Around the same time, his son Dante was diagnosed as autistic.  This ignited a passion in him to help his son and the autistic community.  After assessing the programs available, he began laying the groundwork for Dante’s Journey which will help provide jobs for autistic adults.  A portion of the profits from Kumar Aesthetics Institute will go to Dante’s Journey.

Dr. Kumar graduated from Shri B.M. Patil Medical College Hospital and Research Centre in Vijayapura, Karnataka State, India and completed his US residency at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock, Arkansas.
