How to Live a Fantastic Life


Allen Lycka

Dr. Allen Lycka has been acknowledged as one of the leading cosmetic dermatologists in the world for three decades. A pioneer in cosmetic surgery, he helped to develop laser assisted tumescent liposuction – an advanced body sculpture technique, and Moh’s Micrographic Surgery, an advanced means of removing skin cancer with 99% success. He has lived and practiced in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada since 1989. He’s written 17 books, 30+ academic papers and hosted the number one Internet radio show in the world – INSIDE COSMETIC SURGERY TODAY. He is co-founder of Doctors for the Practice of Safe and Ethical Aesthetic Medicine and founder of The Canadian Skin Cancer Association. He has won the prestigious Consumers Choice Award For Cosmetic Surgery for 16 consecutive years.
In 2003, Dr. Lycka’s life changed drastically when he suddenly developed a right foot drop and then misdiagnosed as ALS (Lou Gherig’s disease). Still, he maintained his status as a leading cosmetic doctor for 30 years. Because of what he learned, he is co-authoring the book THE SECRETS TO LIVING A FANTASTIC LIFE with Harriet Tinka, a former fashion model and Woman of Distinction. He is also currently co-authoring two more books – one with Corie Poirer, BLU TALKES PRESENTS: BUSINESS, LIFE AND THE UNIVERSE and one with Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul fame), THE PILLARS OF SUCCESS. Currently acknowledged as a leading expert in LIVING A FANTASTIC LIFE and TURNING POINTS, he is a transformational speaker, thought leader, coach and mentor. Dr. Lycka is happily married to Dr. Lucie Bernier-Lycka (for 38 years) and they have four daughters, seven grandchildren. He counts his family as his most important accomplishment.
