When Advanced Aesthetics was founded over 25 years ago, our vision was to provide Atlanta area residents with a friendly, comfortable place where they could count on beautiful surgical results in addition to the highest level of patient care.

Today, our team of three Board Certified plastic surgeons uphold that vision, working together to ensure that you achieve your aesthetic goals with the best procedure plan for you. We’re proud to serve Atlanta, South Atlanta, Fayetteville, Newnan and McDonough.

Edward S. Gronka

Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Gronka was born and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania, near the Pocono Mountains. He did his undergraduate training at Emory University, receiving his Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1981. He returned to Atlanta in 1992, where he has been practicing all facets of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery ever since. Dr. Gronka has a broad range of surgical interests, including contouring of the hips, thighs, and abdomen, as well as breast enhancement and facial rejuvenation. He frequently performs tuck, breast augmentation and breast reduction, and liposuction, along with facelift and eyelid surgery.

Joseph Raniere, Jr.

Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Raniere originally hails from the Northeast, specifically the Jersey Shore. He earned his medical degree from Rutgers University in 1993. Highly skilled in all aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Raniere finds liposuction and body contouring procedures, as well as facial cosmetic surgery, including rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, and facelifts, particularly rewarding. He has also developed a special technique for tummy tuck surgery that results in less visible scarring and a more natural contour for the belly button.

Joel M. Stewart, Jr.

Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stewart comes from a very small Alabama town. He earned his medical degree and completed his general surgery residency at the University of Alabama before finishing up at Tulane. His desire to help breast cancer survivors restore their bodies inspired him to pursue plastic surgery. In addition to breast reconstruction, Dr. Stewart has developed a strong interest in facial procedures like brow lift, eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty, as well less invasive facial rejuvenation techniques, including BOTOX & Fillers.
