One of the most popular procedures in all of cosmetic surgery is the breast augmentation. Its status in our culture is one that is unrivaled, leading over 300,000 women to the procedure in 2017 alone. So, how safe is this ubiquitous procedure and what can you expect when you decide to have one?
Hey! Look up in the sky!
Do you see it? The sun’s back!
Yes, summer’s almost here. After a long, very “typical Michigan” wait, our old friend is back, shining joy and UV rays all over us. But with those beautiful rays comes a beating — on our skin, of course. Between chlorinated pools, high UV indexes, and sweaty workouts, your skin is in for one heck of a ride.
But don’t fret! We’ve come up with some simple tips and tricks to help you maintain your skin’s health and happiness in even the harshest of summer conditions.
Facelifts are one of the best known, safest, and most reliable procedures in the cosmetic surgery industry.
It can be frustrating when our outside doesn’t match how young we feel on the inside. Ranging from minimally invasive to much more complicated, facelifts are one of the most popular options for our clients to minimize wrinkles and eliminate sagging skin.
While many people are aware of Botox and its role in facial rejuvenation, some may be interested in other injectables and how they interact with your body. As science progresses, we are finding different ways to capture the youthful energy that people feel on the inside and bring it outward. There are a number of injectables products, which allows us to completely tailor our procedures to our clients.

Women interested in breast plastic surgery procedures should be well-informed about all of their available options. With a full knowledge of your choices, patients can make a decision that’s best suited to their body and their needs.
On the other hand, the wide range of options - breast lifts, breast reductions, breast augmentations, etc. - can be quite confusing.
Have you heard of medical estheticians? We’ve noticed a lot of people hold some misconceptions about medical estheticians, including who they are and what they do.
Read on to get the full scoop on these skin care experts.
Like any other surgery, plastic surgery requires a period of downtime, rest and recovery afterwards. The period can vary greatly depending on the extent of the procedure, but regardless, you should not undergo the procedure until you’re ready to take it easy for 1-4 weeks.
One of the most common questions people have about breast augmentation procedures concern the “right” times and ages to undergo the surgery. There really is no one-size-fits-all answer to these questions: it’s a decision each patient will have to make for themselves with their own unique goals, needs, and lifestyle in mind.
