General Plastic Surgery Info
When considering any kind of surgical or non-invasive cosmetic procedure it is crucial to select qualified physicians who have your best interest and wellbeing at heart. Patients should be comfortable with the physician and staff who will be providing their care. It may take multiple consultations before you find the best fit for you.
Being a patient at Masri Clinic for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery means assurance that you will receive the best in patient care. The practice is the only cosmetic surgery clinic in Michigan with Board Certified Physicians in facial plastic surgery, general plastic surgery, and esthetic medicine. Drs. Haitham Masri, Raj Gupta, and Fatina Masri are dedicated to addressing their patient’s needs with meticulous attention and compassion.
Patients must be diligent in reviewing and following through with all instructions relayed by the surgeon or nurses in order to experience an optimal outcome. They will give you directions concerning how to care for incisions, limiting bruising and swelling, medications you may take, etc. Recovery is a time of healing and it is vital that the body receives the appropriate amount of rest and is cared for through a healthy lifestyle. Many surgical procedures require strenuous activity to be postponed for several weeks. Follow-up appointments are also important in the evaluation of your progress.
While our surgeons are very skilled and have studied and practiced plastic surgery and esthetic medicine extensively, cosmetic procedures are not able to achieve perfection, although they can come close. Patients must bring to their surgery realistic goals and expectations if they hope to be satisfied with the end result.
Face, Body & Breast Surgery
Masri Clinic for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery is proud to offer a comprehensive selection of treatments for the face, body, and breasts. The following is a small sampling of the procedures performed at the Michigan clinic.
The eyes are one of the first features of the face to show signs of aging. When droopy or puffy eyes have you questioning your youth, blepharoplasty, also called an eyelid lift, can remove excess skin, fat, and muscle. You will see a much more rested and vibrant appearance in the mirror, especially since the reduction in sagging can help improve vision.
Do you look like you are constantly frowning? An eyebrow lift will raise the brows to a more youthful and peaceful position while reducing frown lines between the eyes. Dr. Masri performs the procedure using the endoscopic technique to minimize scaring, reduce hair loss, and offer a quicker recovery.
Loose skin in the face and neck is a common problem that comes with age. Jowls and a “double chin” can be exacerbated by sun exposure, smoking, and other factors. A facelift removes extra fat deposits that have collected around the jaw and lifts and tightens the skin while seeming to turn back time.
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is the most popular facial plastic surgery. It is designed to improve the size or shape of the nose, and may also help a patient to breathe better when a structural deformity or obstruction is addressed. Excess bone and cartilage are repositioned or removed to create a nasal appearance that compliments your other facial features.
Who wants something dubbed “bat wings?” An arm lift will remove loose skin from the upper arms, which is often the result of weight fluctuations and a decrease in skin elasticity. Excess skin is removedfrom the back or underside of the arm and that which remains is tightened.
Aging, pregnancy, and weight loss are common contributors to stubborn fat deposits and sagging skin of the body. A body lift will target the abdominal area and lower back, buttocks, groin, thighs, and hips. Liposuction is combined with tummy tuck and thigh/buttocks lift techniques to create a smoother shape for the body and improved contours.
Not all fat is easily shed with diet and exercise. Several areas of the body, including the neck, thighs, abdomen, and hips can benefit from liposuction. During the procedure a narrow tube called a cannula will suction out the unwanted fat. Patients should be of normal or near normal body weight with certain areas they would like refined.
Women who have not been graced with the breasts they want can enhance their figure though breast augmentation. Breast enhancement is made possible with implants, which can improve size, shape, and symmetry. There are several implant options your surgeon will discuss with you.
Sagging breasts are not a sign of youth, which is why many women choose to elevate them with a breast lift. Breast lift helps to also increase firmness and improve overall shape. During the procedure the nipple is also repositioned to create a natural appearance. Breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation or breast reduction.
Breast reduction decreases the size of large and heavy breasts. Many women who have overdeveloped breasts experience difficulty with their confidence and feel physical duress, including back pain and skin irritation. The surgical procedure addresses these concerns by removing fat, breast tissue, and extra skin.
Injectables & Non-Invasive Procedures
Laser Hair Removal,
Men and women often have areas of the body where they would like to see unwanted hair vanish. Shaving, waxing, and tweezing are inconvenient, tedious, and uncomfortable. Laser hair removal eliminates the need for constant grooming and reveals smooth hair-free skin without damaging the tissue.
Chemical peels can improve the overall health of your skin while reducing wrinkles and fine lines. There are several types of peels which can be used safely, ranging in effectiveness and intensity depending on your needs. Some of the most popular are glycolic peels, lactic peels, hydroquinone peels, and TCA peels.
Botox is a very popular injectable used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows. It may also be used to smooth crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox injections are a quick and safe procedure that allows men and women to continue on with their day afterwards.
Wrinkles and volume loss in the face can be addressed through fat transfer. Fat transfer offers an alternative treatment to dermal fillers. Instead of fillers, your own fat is harvested from another area of the body and injected into the face. Often the results are long lasting.
Juvederm isan injectable filler used to restore a youthful appearance to the face. The gel substance is injected beneath the skin to soften wrinkles and add volume. It is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain volume and moisture.
