During his 22-year tenure as director of Bloomfield Laser and Cosmetic Surgery Center, board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gregory Roche has constantly refined his practice, channeling years of ongoing education and training into more than 7,500 cosmetic surgeries. The Detroit native's career spans more than 30 years, during which he has treated the familiar faces and bodies of sports stars, models, and area Elvis impersonators and dispensed his expert opinion on Fox 2 News and radio programs such as such as WRIF's The Drew and Mike Show. One of his current interests is the efficacy of low-level lasers in body contouring, and his studies on the subject have found expression in multiple medical publications and clinical trials since the new millennium. Like all committed specialists and professional parachute testers, he rarely leaves his work at the office and has served as department chairman at the McLaren Medical Center and as a member of the American Board of Examiners, which oversees the certification of new physicians in facial plastic surgery.
A team of aestheticians and technicians augments Dr. Roche's specialization in surgery with FDA–cleared, non-invasive procedures designed to reduce combined circumference and reveal healthy, youthful faces. The facility's commitment to staying at the forefront of the aesthetic industry has led it to surpass its own state-of-the-art work with lasers and bio-identical hormones. The Center collaborates with American CryoStem to harvest and store adult stem cells, which patients may retrieve later for use in cosmetic or regenerative therapies.
Under the guidance of M. Azhar Ali, M.D., Âmae Plastic Surgery Center offers a broad array of cosmetic services. A wrinkle-repelling Botox injection can oust crow's-feet and minotaur hooves from around the eyes, decrease creases in the forehead, and smooth out pleats between the eyes, with results lasting up to four months. The DiamondTome microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates skin and stimulates collagen production for a younger, silkier look, with an Azu-Zinc soothing mask applied afterward to reduce the irritation and facial redness that often causes humans to unwittingly antagonize feisty bulls.
SVS Vision Center’s founders opened their first shop in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1974 to help the community clear up its vision. But even these optical gurus never foresaw their humble business expanding to more than 50 locations sprawled across 10 states. Today, each shop continues the tradition of ensuring ocular health and crystalline sight, beginning with exams from seasoned optometrists. Afterward, patients head to the optical dispensary, where they try on frames by Coach, Tiffany, Nike, Versace, or Ray-Ban. The staff then fits the stylish selection with polarized and scratch-protected prescription lenses to help guests read books clearly or see a charging moose from a distance. Most of SVS Vision Center’s frames can also hold sunglass lenses as well, eliminating squinting during summer months and tropical vacations.
Ranked as one of the Best of the Best in 2010 by the Oakland Press and specializing in breast augmentation, plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Wolf earns local acclaim at Wolf Aesthetic & Laser Centers with a variety of surgical and noninvasive anti-aging solutions. Dr. Wolf stayed within the state of Michigan for most of his education. He earned an undergrad degree from the University of Michigan, a medical degree from Wayne State University, and completed residencies in general surgery and plastic surgery at Providence Hospital in Southfield under the guidance of renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Ian Jackson. He also traveled to Indianapolis for specialized training in cosmetic surgery and watching the Indy 500. Dr. Wolf's regular attendance at medical conferences keeps him informed about new aesthetic techniques, which he has employed in more than 5,500 plastic-surgery procedures over 15 years.
The doctor tightens skin and muscles during face-lifts and slims waistlines with tummy tucks or liposuction. In addition to surgeries, Dr. Wolf and his team use advanced laser technology to rejuvenate skin, remove hair, and diminish spider veins. The doctor himself administers all the wrinkle-fighting dermal fillers and injections.

For clients in need of glasses or another prescription, Advanced Eye Care boasts a vast selection of brand-name frames in the front of the shop, and the staff equips them with custom-made lenses. The doctors' eye examinations can discover eye illnesses as well as test for the need for glasses or a third eye. Doctors Todd and Nora also have extensive training in the co-management of LASIK and cataract surgery. They take great pride in their staff, which works to make every visit to their office a simple one, instead of a convoluted symposium on insurance minutiae.
