Clients leave Elite Ink transformed. Images of wolves, ankhs, and hearts permanently paint their skin, and metal loops dangle from earlobes, bellybuttons, and even throats. Such services are made possible by the tireless work of talented artists, each of whom has received Blood Borne Pathogen Certification from the American Red Cross. Sterilized, prepackaged needles ensure safety and that every torso portrait of Marvin the Martian aboard a razor scooter is pixel-perfect. A backlog of photos speaks to the caliber of work produced by Elite Ink’s artists. The tattooed names of ex-boyfriends and parents who put a hold your allowance can be safely removed by undergoing laser tattoo-removal treatments.
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.

Jen offers free pretreatment consultations, as well as touchups for a modest fee.
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.

He draws upon this experience to enhance bosoms, minimize tummies, and shorten noses of lying puppets and real live humans at Sayeg Plastic Surgery Center.
