Whether he's performing a nose reshaping or breast augmentation, or overseeing a body-contouring or beauty-injection procedure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John M. Trupiano strives to make his patients look as natural as possible. He achieves that by taking the time to educate his patients about what they can expect from a given treatment, taking into account their physical makeup, self-image, and ability to pull off Wolverine claws so they can go into the treatment room with more realistic expectations. After this in-depth consultation, patients can enhance their exteriors with a range of surgical and non-surgical procedures. Botox, facial fillers, and skin-resurfacing and -tightening procedures banish signs of aging and enhance facial features, and laser treatments such as the body-slimming VelaShape II and the hair- and spider-vein-reducing GentleMax Pro leave bodies smoother and clearer without a single incision.
If anyone can attest to the notion that diamonds are forever, it’s an aesthetician. Thanks to the nonsurgical exfoliating treatment known as microdermabrasion, many of those in the beauty business have gotten a firsthand glimpse at the stones’ power to stop time. A less-intense alternative to the chemical peel, microdermabrasion removes the outermost layers of skin by exfoliating it with diamonds. This stimulates cell regeneration and allows new skin—free of fine lines and blemishes—to rise to the surface.
Due to its quick application and recovery time, the microdermabrasion treatment is sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime peel.” The aesthetician performs the treatment with a handheld applicator, which dispenses diamond chips as it glides across the skin’s surface. An attached vacuum and pump then dispose of the loosened skin cells. As a result, newly generated layers of skin take the place of skin blemished by sun damage, wrinkles, acne, and scars. Though they typically target specific areas of the face, microdermabrasion treatments can also exfoliate skin on the chest, back, and limbs.
Dr. Ayoub Sayeg reshapes his clients' faces and bodies with plastic surgery techniques he had been honing since completing his plastic surgery residency at Wayne State in 2000. Over the past decade or so, he has published a number of articles on plastic surgery and has become a member of many professional organizations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. 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.
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.
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.
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.
