Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
Allure Medical Spa's wide realm of services keeps customers wrapped in beauty. Inside the facilities, which feature 30 patient-care rooms and small comforts such as a colorful fish tank, warm wood cabinetry, and tiled walls, guests can experience Dysport—an FDA-approved Botox-like treatment that helps defeat upper facial wrinkles such as crow's feet, between-the-eye frown lines, and worry-plowed brows. All appointments for Dysport treatments begin with a medical consultation and evaluation to determine individual needs and desired results. Then, in a procedure that takes about five minutes and features minimal downtime, the licensed and experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Charles Mok will erase evidence of disappointment and sad feelings with injections of up to 168 units—usually enough to treat most of the affected areas. Revitalized visages emerge from the procedure looking younger and fresher than newborn bread, although clients may experience minor bruising.
Of the more than 5,000 surgeries Dr. Pramit Malhotra has performed during his career, safety and natural-looking results have been his top priorities during each. To this day, the experienced plastic surgeon ensures these priorities by using advanced technology, including CoolSculpting by Zeltiq liposuction treatments, noninvasive dermal fillers, and quick-recovery postsurgery methods. These techniques have also helped Dr. Malhotra win such awards as Top Doctor 2010 from Realself.com and Best of Ann Arbor Cosmetic Surgeon in 2012.
While others grow up wanting to be astronauts and firefighters, Dr. Winter dreamed of the dental arts. After he graduated summa cum laude from Eastern Michigan University, Winter encountered a strong gust of wind that filled his graduation gown and carried him just a few miles down the road to the prestigious University of Michigan dental school, where he continued his studies.
Dental technology has advanced quite a bit in the more than 25 years since Dr. Winter began practicing, but he and his staff at Progressive Dental Professionals pride themselves on staying abreast of the changes. Among the many services and amenities they offer today are realistic Lumineers, single-visit teeth-whitening treatments, and flat-screen TVs.
In elementary school, Quanda Johnson told her classmates she wanted to be a dentist when she grew up—and that’s just what happened. These days she is indeed a licensed dentist who has been helping Today’s Smiles for more than a decade. She specializes in cosmetic dental treatments, such as veneers, cosmetic fillings, and stain removal via whitening rather than outfitting each tooth with a slipcover. She and her team also offer general dentistry services, including exams, extractions, and even braces.
Thanks to a partnership with Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery, Pigalle Salon & MedSpa, a Tiffany Award winner for haircare in 2009 and 2011, is able to offer a combination of traditional hair, nail, and massage services along with medical-grade facials and hair-removal treatments. The salon pampers guests with complimentary herbal tea and coffee served in a cozy lounge where clients wait patiently to enjoy body wraps, tanning sessions, or laser hair-removal treatments that get rid of unwanted hair more effectively than wishing on all the stars in the sky ever could.
