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.
At Tip Top Tattoos, a team of tattoo and body piercing artists draw upon a huge selection of designs and personal creativity to give each guest a highly customized experience. They realize that no two tattoos should be the same and craft a visual representation of each client's imagined look within the privacy of individual booths. Certified body piercer Mallory Cox—whose apprenticeship and training included approved sterilization techniques and anatomy courses—adds bling to ears, noses, and fashion-forward tin men.
The technicians can also discard old, unwanted tattoos with the MedLite C6 Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser system, which they use in conjunction with the Cryo 6 cooling machine to minimize discomfort.
ENT Facial Plastics dedicates its practice to improving clients’ countenances using advanced dermal technologies. Undo summers spent lounging on solar flares with a microdermabrasion treatment, a nonsurgical facial-resurfacing session that helps diminish fine lines and silkify sun-damaged skin. The skin-smoothing treatment begins with a complimentary skin consultation administered by licensed practical nurse, Debbie Scheib. The dermal gurus will inspect skin for problem areas, special issues, and any half-constructed, pore-sized Death Stars. After a thorough skin scrutinizing, clients will feel the fine-crystal touch of the microdermabrasion wand as it skips gleefully across the face, removing loitering upper-layer cells and revealing the firm, youthful layer underneath with little to no sensation. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and makeup glides on effortlessly after the experience, unless applied with mittens.

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.

Clients can await their chemical peel, Botox injections, or laser hair-removal sessions in the skincare center's "serenity room."
