History of Esthé
History of Esthé
The Esthé Clinic was established as a part of Kolowrat’s building complex, based on the long-term friendship of Count Tomáš Kolowrat-Krakovský with Associate Professor Jan Měšťák, M.D., the chief surgeon of the Clinic. It is situated in a unique location in the city centre of Prague, in the street Na Příkopě, accessible for all clients from Prague as well as from distant surroundings.
After a year of constructions and an investment provided by Count Kolowrat, the Clinic was opened at a ceremony in December 1997.
Entrance to the Esthé Clinic
Under the professional leadership of Associate Professor Jan Měšťák, M.D., this private medical institution provides specialized services in plastic surgery, laser surgery, corrective dermatology and in other medical fields. In the course of more than 10 years the Clinic has gained a prominent position among institutes for aesthetic medicine in this country, which is proven not only by an unusually high number of clients interested in consultations at the Clinic but also by dozens of thousands patients who have successfully undergone surgeries and conservative treatments. A co-owner and partner of Dr. Měšťák, Hana Reková, M.D., has also significantly contributed to the reputation of the Clinic. She leads the department of laser therapy and corrective dermatology at the clinic, which in September 2001was extended with new rooms, equipped with the state-of-the-art laser technology.
Reception at the Esthé Clinic
The remarkable success of the Clinic is also supported by the legacy of the Kolowrat family, focusing on a strong sense for medical ethics and humanity in relation to patients, as the chief surgeon promised and emphasized at the opening ceremony. Prominent Czech experts guarantee highly professional and qualified services at the Clinic. A professional team of qualified nurses has been especially chosen to ensure post-operative process and recovery without complications, supported by superior environment and conditions at the Clinic.
The Clinic includes a sterile operating room and an operating room for treatment under local anesthesia, single and double rooms with TV, telephone and bathroom with a total capacity of 15 beds. The reputation of one of the most prominent private medical institution in this country is enhanced by ultrasound liposuction, the first of its kind in the Czech Republic, vibration liposuction, options of endoscopic operating technique and the laser program performed on state-of-the-art instruments.
The good reputation of the private clinic is also supported by the fact that its chief surgeon Associate Professor Jan Měšťák, M.D., is the head of the Clinic for Plastic Surgery at the First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, and at the University Hospital Na Bulovce and the head of the Sub-department for Plastic Surgery at the Institute for Postgraduate Medical Education. He also leads the Centre for Complex Surgical Treatment of women with breast cancer which works at the Clinic for Plastic Surgery which he has founded and which is the only one of its kind in the Czech Republic.

In 2008 the Esthé Clinis was divided into a joint-stock company exclusively focused on aesthetic surgery and on a limited liability company covering the corrective dermatology and laser therapy. Subsequently in January 2009 Ass. Prof. Měšťák accepted two outstanding plastic surgeons, Libor Kment, M. D., and Karel Urban, M. D., as co-owners of the Esthé Clinic to strengthen the position on the aesthetic surgery market. Esthé also introduced new departments featuring breast consulting and breast ultrasound examinations for the preventive care program for women before breast surgeries but also for their further post-operative monitoring.
In 2009 the Esthé Clinic started the collaboration with “Beauty to Help”, a foundation of Taťána Kuchařová, Miss World 2006, to support charity. Miss Kuchařová has become the new face of the Clinic.
