Your husband, boyfriend, fiancé, father, brother or other special guy can even choose what service he would like – and he can use the gift certificate now, or wait until later in 2021.

1. Give Him CoolSculpting for Valentines Day

Does he complain about his midsection, gripe about his love handles, or walk around trying to suck in his gut when he’s out in public? What if you could give the guy in your life the body he’s always wanted (or the body he used to have) for Valentines Day? And we are NOT talking about buying him a new piece of exercise equipment or another gym membership!

We offer several body enhancement and fat loss treatments at our Detroit area cosmetic surgery office that take away his fat in problem areas – to reveal those abs! Our most popular is non-invasive CoolSculpting – which offers non-surgical fat loss – with no downtime!

CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive fat-removal procedure that removes up to 24% of fat in a treated area. A handheld applicator applies cold temperatures to the unwanted fat. This applicator “freezes” or “crystalizes” the fat cells, and the body then naturally eliminates them. CoolSculpting can remove fat and inches from the waist, abs, and “love handles” – and almost anywhere else on the body, even a “double chin”.

A Gift Certificate for CoolSculpting can help him get rid of the stubborn fat pockets she hates, and reveal the abs he can be proud of – all with no exercise and no downtime!

2. Give Him Liposuction for Valentines Day

Want to give him the “abs” he’s always wanted for Valentines Day? Now you can!

Another fat loss procedure most guys would love to get for Valentines Day (instead of another fattening box of chocolates) is a Gift Certificate for tumescent liposuction. Lipo can remove fat from almost any area of the body, including the belly and flanks, as well as the buttocks, thighs, back and arms.

Liposuction is especially ideal for stubborn pockets of fat around a man’s middle that don’t respond to exercise or dieting. Usually this type of fat is hereditary to some degree, and the only way to permanently remove it is with liposuction or CoolSculpting.

Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that requires only local anesthetic, and the results are almost immediate. So he can get the liposuction in February and be swimsuit-ready before summer.

Can’t decide between liposuction and CoolSculpting? No problem! A Valentines Day Gift Certificate from Detroit area AMAE Plastic Surgery & Med Spa enables your guy to choose the procedure HE wants.

3. Give Him a Stronger Jaw & Chiseled Chin for Valentines Day

Kybella is an innovative, new, nonsurgical treatment used to reduce or eliminate a “double chin” caused by excess “submental” fat beneath the chin. Kybella injections into the chin area dissolves the double chin fat, and offers patients a significantly stronger, contoured jawline.

Speaking of a strong, square jawline new Juvéderm Volux dermal filler is also a great choice for men seeking a stronger, more pronounced jawline. This brand new formula of jaw fillers is a thick consistency dermal gel injection that not only “fill” but also shape and contour a man’s jaw.

4. Give Him (Yourself) a Breast Augmentation for Valentines Day

If you really want to GO BIG for Valentines Day, then consider scheduling your OWN breast augmentation with renowned Detroit area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali. This is a gift to YOURSELF – and also one that the man in your life will enjoy for years to come.

We know that he loves you just the way you are! But if you are a bit dissatisfied with (or self conscious about) the size, shape or placement of your breasts, breast enhancement surgery can give you the gorgeous bustline you’ve always wanted.

You’ll look better in clothes – AND in the bedroom – with breast implants that help you love the way you look. And we promise, HE will love the way you look too!

5. Give Him (and You) Better Sex with Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation

Give your partner AND YOURSELF the gift of better sex and improved intimacy this Valentines Day with a vaginal rejuvenation treatment.

Sadly, childbirth, aging and post-menopausal hormone decrease all take their toll on a woman’s vagina. The vaginal lining can become looser, lax (lacking in tone), dry, and less sensitive. This results in painful sex for the woman and less sensation and less satisfaction for both partners.

But the fantastic news is that a one-time, non-surgical vaginal treatment can “turn back the clock” on female intimacy problems. Radiofrequency “vaginal rejuvenation” restore tightness, elasticity, lubrication and sensation to the vagina – in just one treatment, without surgery and without hormones!

Wouldn’t YOU like to get (and give) better sex for Valentines Day? The best news is that there is no downtime – and results begin to take effect almost immediately! So there’s still time to schedule a treatment before Valentines Day! Now that’s a gift he’s sure to love!

Love Your Arms! 4 Treatments for Thinner Arms & Tighter Skin

Four Ways to Get Thinner Arms & Tighten Arm Skin

The holidays are almost here  – including Christmas celebrations and New Year’s Eve parties!  But many women dread getting dressed up for special occasions because they are embarrassed by loose, saggy, or ‘giggly’ skin on their arms. Instead of feeling fabulous in short sleeve, sleeveless, off the shoulder, or strapless dresses, women with drooping arm skin often bundle up in long sleeves and jackets to hide their arms.

Arm fat, as well as unsightly flabby skin that hangs down from the arms, can also make a man or woman self-conscious about baring their arms in tank tops, bathing suits or sleeveless summer clothing! Additionally,  arm fat can be especially frustrating for women preparing for a big event – such as a wedding or other formal occasion! Because the latest fashions in wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and evening wear, are most often sleeveless, excess arm fat or skin can turn dress shopping from a joyous occasion into one of sadness and disappointment.

But that does NOT have to be the case! At AMAE in the Troy, MI area we offer several surgical – as well as non-surgical and non-invasive treatments – that can trim and tone arms. In this article Troy, MI board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali shares the details of four top arm tightening treatments available at AMAE.

Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive Arm Fat Treatment

At AMAE in the Troy, MI area we offer CoolSculpting to get rid of arm fat – the #1 non-invasive procedure in the world for permanently reducing arm fat!  CoolSculpting gets rid of arm fat painlessly and permanently – without surgery, diet or exercise.

A single CoolSculpting treatment will typically reduce the fat layer thickness in the arms by 20-25% in just a single treatment.  And, additional treatments will produce even more fat reduction in the upper arms. While CoolSculpting is loved by our Troy, MI area patients because there is no downtime, results are gradual and take a little time.

Full results develop over time, as the body naturally eliminates the frozen fat cells – so schedule CoolSculpting three months before the big event to see complete arm fat reduction results by the big day!

Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive Arm Skin Tightening

While CoolSculpting has some mild, but not dramatic skin, tightening effects, we also offer state-of-the-art new Profound skin tightening. Profound can be used on its own to tighten lax, flabby arm skin – or in conjunction with CoolSculpting to reduce fat and tone loose skin on the arms.

AMAE was one of the first providers in the Troy, MI area to offer revolutionary new Profound radiofrequency skin tightening. Profound stimulates renewed production of collagen and elastin – the building blocks of tight, toned, elastic skin. Profound also rejuvenates the production of hyaluronic acid, another substance produced by the body to yield smoother, tighter skin.

Surgical Arm Fat Removal

For larger amounts of arm fat removal liposuction can be highly effective. It is performed under anesthesia for a completely comfortable experience. Only tiny, well concealed scars will be left that fade over time.

Liposuction immediately removes fat from the arms by sucking it out through a small straw-like cannula. After about 3 weeks, most of the swelling will have gone down leaving visible results. These results will continue to improve over the next 6 months or so as the swelling completely subsides.

There is downtime of at least three days after liposuction – with a compression garment worn for several days. And there will be limits on physical activity for a few weeks. So make sure to schedule your liposuction well in advance of any big event.

Arm Lift Surgical Skin Tightening

People with decent skin elasticity may see their arms naturally “bounce back” and tighten after liposuction. Others with more skin laxity may need to tighten the remaining skin with Profound radiofrequency, discussed above. But patients with excessive amounts of loose, hanging or flabby skin may want to consider a surgical arm lift for optimal arm skin tightening and toning.

With new surgical techniques and technologies, arm lift surgery is now safer, easier, less invasive and more comfortable than ever. As a result, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that, over the last 10 years, the number of arm lift surgeries performed in the U.S. has increased by a whopping 4,378%!

Thanks to these advancements, arm lift surgery patients are able to enjoy better results than ever, with smaller less conspicuous scars, and significantly less downtime.

During arm lift surgery, excess skin from the upper arm (sometimes known as a “bat wing”) is surgically removed, using incisions that are strategically placed to be less visible.  The remaining skin is then tightly pulled together and sutured – leaving trim, toned arms.

Downtime can range from 1 to 2 weeks, and strenuous activities must also be avoided for about 6 weeks after arm lift surgery. But patients universally agree that the longer recovery period is well worth it to achieve the most dramatically trimmed and tightened arms possible.

Get Thinner Arms & Tighter Arm Skin – Troy, MI

If you would like slimmer, trimmer, and tighter arms, schedule a consultation at AMAE with renowned Troy, MI area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali. He will help you determine the best procedure(s) for you to get arms you love and will be proud to show off. He will create a custom treatment plan so you can get the smooth, sexy arms  – and wear the clothes you want – with confidence!

3 Ways to Get Flat Abs (Without Working Out)

Lipo, CoolSculpting & Tummy Tucks for Firm, Flat Abs (Without Working Out)!

Always wanted flat abs – but tired of endless dieting and exercise without results? Oakland County plastic surgeon Dr. Ali offers three different ways to lose the fat, and get tight trim abs. And with easy financing options, you can get started right away with no money down.

Are you frustrated with putting in the work and not seeing results?  You’re not alone. Every year the number one resolution in America is to diet and exercise. Yet every year the vast majority of people give up their plans to improve their bodies, because it’s just too hard to get results.

But in most cases the lack of progress you are seeing is not your fault! How and where your body deposits fat is largely hereditary. And once your body has developed fat cells they will never completely go away. Weight loss can cause the fat cells to get smaller. However, all the exercise and diet in the world cannot remove them.

That is why many people experience stubborn fat that they can’t get rid of no matter what they eat (or don’t eat!) and how much they work out. The good news is that Dr. Ali offers three techniques that can get rid of the persistent fat: CoolSculpting, Liposuction & Tummy Tucks.

#1. CoolSculpting for Flat Abs

CoolSculpting uses a handheld applicator to apply cold temperatures to unwanted fat. Mild suction pulls the fat bulges into the applicator, where the fat cells are “frozen” or “crystalized”. This literally “kills” the fat cells. Then your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells over time.

Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good! They never come back. And this is something that all of the diet and exercise in the world cannot accomplish. And because CoolSculpting is non-invasive and non-surgical there is absolutely no downtime!

Spring is the perfect time to consider CoolSculpting – because your results will begin to be visible by the time swimsuit season starts to roll around. It takes a little time for the body to eliminate the dead fat cells, so CoolSculpting results start to be visible after 2 to 4 weeks. It takes about 2 months for dramatic results and about 3 months to deliver more complete results . . . just in time to be bathing-suit ready by June!

#2. Liposuction for Flat Abs

Dr. Ali is also one of the most talented liposuction surgeons in Oakland County. Liposuction is a minimally-invasive surgical technique that removes excess fat deposits located between the skin and muscle. With liposuction, Dr. Ali literally “sculpts” the body’s contours by “sucking out” the stubborn pockets of fat cells that are resistant to exercise and dieting.

Liposuction can remove fat on your abs and ‘love handles’, as well as the thighs, hips, arms and even your face and chin! And, just like CoolSculpting, the fat cells removed by liposuction are permanently gone and will never come back.

Tumescent liposuction is newer generation liposuction procedure, which uses a “micro-cannula” (tiny tube) to suck out the fat – resulting in significantly less swelling, less discomfort, and less “downtime” than older liposuction techniques.

Liposuction shows results faster than other body sculpting procedures, because the fat cells are immediately removed from the body. However, lipo does have a little more downtime than CoolSculpting (which has none).  As the swelling goes down after the first week or two results begin to be visible. And after 4 to 6 weeks, more complete liposuction results become visible.

Because the fat has been “sucked out” (and doesn’t have to be eliminated by the body) the results are immediate – though only visible post-swelling.

#3. Tummy Tuck for Flat Abs

Liposuction and CoolSculpting are ideal for removing excess fat – but they do not remove excess skin or repair sagging muscles. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes “flabby” loose skin, tightens and also tightens and/or repairs stretched-out, torn or splayed abdominal muscles.

A tummy tuck (also called abdominoplasty) is a much more invasive procedure than liposuction or CoolSculpting, and typically requires general anesthesia. An incision is made across the lower abdomen in order to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. It is carefully placed within the ‘bikini line’ by Dr. Ali to make and scar the least visible as possible.

A tummy tuck does result in a longer recovery time and more intense discomfort than lipo or CoolSculpting. Most people should plan on a minimum of 10 to 14 days before returning to work, or normal activities. However, our Oakland County Tummy Tuck patients universally report that the amazing results of tummy tuck surgery are 100% worth the downtime and discomfort.

There are also a few variations to the tummy tuck procedure, depending on how much extra fat and loose skin you have to get rid of, and whether the abdominal muscles also need to be repaired. For example, a “mini” tummy tuck is less invasive and results in a much smaller scar than a “full” tummy tuck.

Oakland County CoolSculpting, Liposuction & Tummy Tuck Surgery

This year finally get the toned, trim abs you want once and for all, without crash diets and endless exercising.

Oakland County board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of women and men lose inches and get the toned, trim abs they have always wanted with CoolSculpting, Liposuction, or a Tummy Tuck surgery. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Ali, and he will take the time to help you decide which procedure is right for you!

New Years Resolution: Lose Fat with Lipo or CoolSculpting

Choose Lipo or CoolSculpting to Lose Fat in 2022!

Well, we ALL deserve a pat on the back for making it through 2021 – a year that will go down in the history books as one that nobody want to revisit. And now that 2022 is here it’s that time of year again for New Years Resolutions. Losing weight and getting in better shape is always the top New Years Resolution in the United States, year after year. And this year that more people than ever are concerned about their physiques after the weight gain caused by the sedentary lifestyle of the pandemic.

If you gained unwanted fat during the past two years, you are not alone! A survey by the American Psychological Association has reported that 42 percent of U.S. adults said they gained too much weight during quarantine. And popular website Statistica reports that 50% of Americans want to get in better shape in 2022 as their New Years Resolution! But, as we all know, that is much easier said than done.

The good news is that there are two highly effective ways to get rid of unwanted fat – without diet or exercise – now available at AMAE in Birmingham, MI. In fact, Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of women and men in the Birmingham area – and across Wayne, Oakland & Macomb County – get the body they want with either Lipo or CoolSculpting!

But with two great fat-loss treatments, how do you know which procedure is right for you? In this article the fat loss experts at AMAE in Birmingham, MI discuss the general differences between Lipo and CoolSculpting. Remember every patient is unique, and what is the best procedure for one person may not be right for someone else. Take a look at the the details below and then schedule a consultation with Dr. Ali to see which fat loss method is best for you. He provides each patient with an evaluation and detailed answers to their questions, so that you can choose the best fat loss procedure to help you achieve your personal New Years Resolution!

Lipo Facts

Liposuction – commonly called  “Lipo” – is a minimally invasive surgical technique that removes excess fat deposits located between the skin and muscle. Lipo improves the body’s shape by surgically getting rid of stubborn “bulges” of fat that are resistant to exercise and dieting.

While lipo is a “fat loss” treatment, and not a weight loss method per se, up to 11 pounds of unwanted fat can safely be removed in a single lip procedure. In most cases Lipo can be performed under local anesthesia, and the patient can go home within a half hour after the procedure. The incision(s) made during Lipo are very small (less than 3mm) so there are no stitches and little to no visible scars.

The recovery time after Lipo is from 2 to 7 days before normal activity can be resumed – and there is both swelling and discomfort that gradually subsides over a period of 2 to 8 weeks.

Liposuction is very appealing to many people as a fat loss solution, because results are “immediate” – because the fat has been surgically and permanently “sucked out”. Once the swelling goes down, the fat loss is completely visible and while it is possible to gain weight after lipo, the fat cells in the treated are will never come back.

In addition to being performed on the “tummy” (abdomen, waist) Lipo can also  be used on many other parts of the body including the flanks (love handles), arms, thighs and butt, male breast area, and even the chin!

Lipo also generally works best for people who have good skin elasticity and muscle tone – and who do not have excess skin or loose abdominal muscles. Patients with mild to moderate loose skin may want to combine lipo with one of our state-of-the-art, non-surgical, laser or radiofrequency skin tightening treatments. And patients with excessive loose skin or stretched abdominal muscles may wish to consider surgical skin tightening (like a tummy tuck or arm lift).

CoolSculpting Facts

One of the easiest ways to lose fat in the New Year – without diet, exercise or downtime – is revolutionary CoolSculpting.

Like Lipo, CoolSculpting is primarily used to remove stubborn areas of fat that resist diet and exercise.  And, like Lipo, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss tool for obesity. However, CoolSculpting can reduce fat by up to 25% in the treated area – with no surgery and no downtime.

CoolSculpting is non-surgical and non-invasive – so there is no incision and no local anesthetic. This also means that there is virtually no recovery period! While lipo is generally done in one treatment, CoolSculpting typically involves multiple treatments – depending on the area(s) being treated and the amount of fat being removed.  CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells, which are then eliminated naturally by the body – so it takes a little more time to see results than with lipo. Most patients begin to see results within 4 weeks, and it may take 3 to 5 months to observe final results.

As an added benefit, CoolSculpting does have some skin tightening properties. It can also be combined with one of our advanced, non-surgical, laser or radiofrequency skin tightening treatments. Like lipo, however, CoolSculpting does not remedy loose abdominal muscles – which are better treated with a surgical tummy tuck.

Beware of Lipo or CoolSculpting Clinics With Only One Choice

The best way to determine whether Lipo or CoolSculpting treatment is best for you is to discuss your goals with a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali who offers BOTH Lipo AND CoolSculpting. AMAE Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Birmingham, MI offers both fat loss procedures. We will examine your skin, muscles, body, lifestyle and goals to help you choose the best procedure for your unique needs.

Always be very wary of doctors, clinic that only offer one type of fat loss or skin tightening procedure. They will likely steer or pressure you into the procedure they offer – even if another procedure would be better for your body, your goals or your lifestyle. Only a surgeon who offers BOTH procedures can give you the choices you need, so that you can choose the fat loss treatment that is best for you.

Best Lipo in Birmingham, MI

In sum, CoolSculpting is less invasive, and less uncomfortable than Lipo, with less downtime. But the CoolSculpting results take more treatments than Lipo – and the results of CoolSculpting take longer to be visible than Lipo. For patients with moderate skin laxity in the treated area AMAE also offers advanced, non-surgical skin tightening technologies. And, for patients with excess loose skin and/or stretched or torn abdominal muscles, Dr. Ali also offers surgical treatments that can tighten skin and muscles – such as tummy tucks and arm lifts.

Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of women and men in the Birmingham, MI area and across Wayne, Oakland & Macomb County get the body they want with Lipo and CoolSculpting. He will be happy to offer you a consultation to help you understand your options and decide if Lipo or CoolSculpting is right for you.

And remember, financing options are also available!

6 Reasons We Love CoolSculpting for Fat Loss

CoolSculpting: Lose That Fat in The New Year!

Congratulations are in order – we made it through 2021, and another Christmas in the time of COVID. We understand if you’re a little bit exhausted. And, if you are like most people you probably put on a few pound (or more) during quarantine as well as during the holidays. 2022 is time for a fresh start – and what better way to start the New Year than with affordable, effective fat loss treatments – that require NO dieting and NO exercise!

2022 is the perfect time to do something just for you. And CoolSculpting – for the body you’ve always wanted – is the perfect gift you can give yourself.

In this article the fat loss experts at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa explain why CoolSculpting is the perfect fat loss treatment for the New Year!

#1. CoolSculpting is Affordable

The average American family spent almost $1000 on gifts this holiday season. And people in the Rochester Hills, Troy, Farmington Hills and West Bloomfield area typically spent much more than this! How much did you spend on others this Christmas? Most people don’t think twice about pulling out their credit card to buy that “perfect gift” for their loved ones at Christmas. But few of us spend that kind of money on ourselves.

With CoolSculpting treatments starting under $1000 you can give yourself a better body, for less than you spent on Christmas gifts. And, through January 31, 2022, AMAE is offering new patients $250 OFF 6 or more CoolSculpting cycles – so you can start your fat loss journey right away.

#2. CoolSculpting Financing Is Available

With several easy financing options, you can give yourself the gift of fat loss today. We offer two easy and convenient financing options that enable patients to get CoolSculpting now and pay for it  over time?

Many of our patients have used the following lenders, and are very happy with the level of service they received and the way they were treated.

CoolSculpting Financing Companies:

#3. CoolSculpting is Permanent

CoolSculpting is the gift that keeps on giving year after year – because the fat loss results are permanent. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that literally freezes and kills unwanted fat cells. Once the fat cells are destroyed they are eliminated from the body, and they do not come back … ever!

This is because the number of fat cells a person has is set by the time they are adults. So, while you gain gain or lose weight, once fat cells are destroyed the body can never make new ones!

#4. CoolSculpting has No Downtime

Got a free hour? That’s typically all it takes for a CoolSculpting treatment! You can even have CoolSculpting done on your lunch break – and return to work the same day. Many Mom’s have it done while the kids are in school, and still pick up their children at the end of the school day.

Depending upon the number of areas to be treated, and the amount of fat to be removed, patients may need more than one treatment. But there is never any downtime afterward!

#5. CoolSculpting Fat Loss with No Diet & No Exercise

Heredity primarily determines where fat is stored on our bodies. That is why fat often does not respond to diet or exercise. And, most busy parents and business people just don’t have time to spend endless hours in the gym. Additionally, certain areas of the body – such as rolls of back fat or double chins – can’t effectively be reached with exercise.

But CoolSculpting eliminates fat – without diet or exercise! Patients simply lie back and relax while our certified CoolSculpting technician applies the applicator to the treated area. In less than an hour the fat cells are destroyed – and patients can return to their day.

#6. CoolSculpting Delivers Results Before Summer

January is the perfect time to consider CoolSculpting – because your results will be complete by the time swimsuit season rolls around.

Once the fat is frozen, your body’s lymphatic system will gradually remove the dead fat cells over time. Because it takes time for the body to eliminate the dead fat cells, CoolSculpting results start to be visible after 2 to 4 weeks. And it may take 2 months for more dramatic results, and up to 3 to 5 months to deliver complete and final results.

So January is the perfect time to get started! By June your body will be 100% bathing suit ready. Your partner, family and friends will be amazed at the “new you” that emerges from your winter sweater and into that bold bikini or bathing suit trunks!

4 Effective Ways to Get Rid of Pubic Fat

Pubic Fat Reduction and Skin Tightening for Men & Women

Fat in the pubic area can undermine a woman or man’s self-confidence in the bedroom during those intimate moments. But, unfortunately, the “pubic mound” is among the most difficult areas from which to lose fat. And, while lifestyle adjustments like dieting and exercising are important to losing weight, they simply can’t do very much to trim and tone the pubic area.

This is because – while we can control (to some extent) how much weight we lose – we have absolutely no control over where fat loss occurs on our body. And, arguably, no area is more diet-and-exercise-resistant than the pubic area.

The good news is that there are a variety of medical pubic fat reduction solutions available at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in the Detroit area. We offer four advanced non-surgical and surgical pubic fat reduction and toning procedures. In this article, we’ll discuss how a thinner, more toned pubic area can now be a reality for anyone.

Liposuction to Remove Pubic Fat

Out of the many pubic fat reduction options available to our Detroit area patients, liposuction is perhaps the most popular. By gently removing excess fat from the pubic mound, liposuction is a safe and effective means of attaining thinner pubic area. Lipo is invasive than pubic lift surgery and also has a shorter recovery time.

Through the use of tiny tubes called micro-cannulas, board certified Troy, MI area plastic surgeon gently dislodges fat from the treatment area. The micro-cannulas then suck the fat from the pubic area, resulting in a thinner and more attractive pubic area.

Typically, lipo pubic fat reduction procedure requires only light anesthesia. And liposuction patients are afforded a thinner pubic area with only a few days of downtime – far less than with pubic lift surgery.

CoolSculpting to Get Rid of Pubic Fat

CoolSculpting for pubic fat reduction is a completely non-invasive, non-surgical method of obtaining a thinner pubic area. Unlike liposuction, which simply removes unwanted fat via suction, CoolSculpting instead freezes and kills the unwanted fat cells in the treatment area. In the weeks that follow, the destroyed fat cells will die, collapse, and be naturally eliminated from the body.
While highly effective at getting rid of fat, CoolSculpting does not result in the body contouring produced by liposuction. And, while CoolSculpting is a safe and effective way to get thinner pubic area – with no downtime – it takes a few weeks for the pubic fat reduction results to become visible.

Additionally, while liposuction and pubic lift surgery provide pubic fat reduction with just one procedure, CoolSculpting delivers peak results through a series of multiple treatments.

Profound for Tighter, Toned Pubic Area

Sagging skin is another issue in the pubic area that can make a man or woman feel unattractive during intimacy. But when performed on its own – or in combination with fat loss from lipoor CoolSculpting –amazing new Profound radiofrequency skin tightening can help patients achieve firm toned pubic area!

This revolutionary pubic mound tightening procedure is as safe and effective as it is groundbreaking. Using radiofrequency energy, Profound RF skin tightening is able to deliver incredible, toned results completely non-surgically. With results that last, patients can say goodbye to sagging, lax, or loose skin in the pubic area.

Pubic Lift Surgery to Get Rid of Pubic Fat

Unlike the other less invasive pubic fat reduction procedures, pubic lift surgery (monsplasty) is more invasive – but also delivers the most dramatic results. Somewhat like a “tummy tuck for the pubic mound” this is an extremely effective, way to get thinner pubic area as well as tighten or remove loose skin on the pubic mound.
During pubic lift surgery an incision is made under anesthetic, and Dr. Ali removes fat and surgically reshapes and tightens the tissue. He will also remove excess outer skin, re-drape it, and pull it tight to offer a smooth toned pubic mound.

If needed support sutures will be placed in the underlying tissues to ensure that the new shape of the pubic area permanently remains in place. Then, Dr. Ali will close the skin incisions with sutures. Dr. Ali will take great care to make incisions as small an unnoticeable as possible – often placing them in areas that will be masked by clothing and bathing suits.

Pubic Fat Removal – Detroit Area

Whether you’re looking to get rid of stubborn pubic fat or to simply tighten the skin of your pubic area, we have the solution you need.

Father’s Day is June 20th: Give Dad a Spa Gift Certificate!

Men’s Spa Gift Certificates: the Perfect Father’s Day Gift!

Father’s Day is June 20th – which is only three weeks away! And if your Dad or husband is like ours, he’s extremely difficult to shop for.

Many Dads go out and buy whatever they want for themselves – making gift giving even harder! And we’re pretty sure that the Dad in your life probably does NOT want (or need) another shirt or tie or bottle of cologne for Father’s Day.

We’re finally coming out of the pandemic. But while Dad may not show it, this past challenging year with the worry, uncertainty and isolation of the coronavirus quarantine has likely been just as hard on Dad as it has been on the rest of us. After months of uncertainty, working from home, homeschooling kids, and worrying about the rest of the family, most Dad’s could probably really use some “pampering” right about now.

A gift certificate from AMAE Plastic Surgery & Med Spa let’s you give Dad something he really wants … like a way to get rid of that extra fat from the “Quarantine 15” that many of us have gained.  Or perhaps he would like a little men’s Botox (aka “Brotox”) to erase some of the worry lines from his forehead! Honestly, we don’t know one Dad who wouldn’t want to be thinner or better looking!

And, even better, our Gift Certificates can now be purchased online – making them the ideal Fathers’ Day gift that you can give without even leaving the house to shop.

In this article we tell you about three men’s cosmetic procedures that we offer at our Birmingham Medical Spa that Dad probably really wants, but would never buy for himself. And when you buy a gift certificate online, Dad can choose from these or any service that he likes.

Give Dad Better Abs for Father’s Day with CoolSculpting

After a kid or two, many men develop the dreaded Dad Bod: thicker around the middle, less defined abs, and those chunky “love handles” that don’t respond to diet or exercise.

CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive, non-surgical fat-removal procedure, with no downtime. A handheld applicator applies cold temperatures to the unwanted fat. This applicator “freezes” or “crystalizes” the fat cells, and the body then naturally eliminates them. This is a permanent fat removal solution – and the fat never comes back to the CoolSculpted area.

CoolSculpting can remove fat and inches from Dad’s waist, abs, “love handles” and even his “double chin”. Why not give Dad a body he (and Mom!) will love, with a gift certificate for CoolSculpting?

Give Dad a Younger Face for Father’s Day with Botox

We know Dad would probably never buy a cosmetic procedure for himself. But we also know that those lines and furrows caused by aging, the stress or work and the pandemic (and worrying about you!) probably bother him a lot.

Botox is a safe, effective and popular treatment for reducing the signs of aging in men as well as women. In fact, more than 500,000 men received Botox treatments in 2019 alone!

Recently many male celebrities – including everyone’s favorite American idol judge Simon Cowell – have openly stated that they rely on Botox for maintaining their youthful, manly good looks!

Our Botox prices are the lowest in the Birmingham, MI area making them a very affordable Father’s Day gift, too. Call us, stop in or purchase a Botox Gift Certificate online today.

Father’s Day Kybella for Dad’s Double Chin

If your Dad has a double chin, he probably hates it and feels very self-conscious about it. But he may not know that you can easily get rid of a double chin with a series of injections that destroy the “submental” fat cells beneath the chin area.

No incisions are required, each treatment only takes about 15 to 20 minutes in our discreet Birmingham Med Spa, and there is little to very minimal downtime for most patients. So Dad can get back to work, with no one having to know he had his double chin “dissolved”.

Best of all Kybella treatment is permanent – so Dad’s double chin won’t ever come back. And he will have the smooth, strong, masculine jawline he’s always wanted! Why not give Dad the best gift ever with a Gift Certificate for Kybella treatments?

He will love our discreet and private consultation process – and he will thank you for helping him get the face and body he’s always wanted, rather than another tie or shirt.

How to Get Thin by the New Year

Give Yourself the Gift of Fat Loss For Christmas– 

Thanksgiving has past, Hanukkah is here, and Christmas is only a few weeks away. And, as always, the goal for the upcoming New Year is to “get thin” – or at least lose the extra fat that many of us accumulated during 2020 and 2021.

But, we all know that dieting and exercise is just not an effective or easy way to “get thin quick” or “lose fat fast.” The good news is that Detroit area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali offers three highly effective procedures to remove unwanted fat without restricting calories or working out. He has helped hundreds of women and men in the greater Detroit area get the body they want with  a wide variety of procedures to remove fat and inches from almost every area of the body, including: liposuction, CoolSculpting, tummy tucks and more.

In this article we discuss the time-frames of the most popular body sculpting and fat loss procedures available at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in the Detroit area.

How Long Do Liposuction Results Take?

Liposuction delivers visible results the “fastest” of the most common body sculpting procedures.

Tumescent liposuction is the newest generation liposuction procedures, which uses a “micro-cannula” (tiny tube) to suck out the fat. Tumescent liposuction only involves one procedure and significantly less swelling and “downtime” than older liposuction techniques.

As the swelling goes down (after the first few days up to about 4 to 6 weeks) the liposuction results become visible. Because the fat has been surgically “sucked out” and does not have to be eliminated by the body, the results are immediate – though only visible post-swelling.

Your recovery period will depend on how extensive the procedure was, how much fat was removed, your age, your general health, etc. But in most cases the swelling will subside, and substantial results will be visible in 4 to 6 weeks.

So, if you are hoping for visible results by New Years, early December is the time to book your liposuction appointment!! Additionally, because liposuction requires a few days to a week or so of downtime, many people find that the Christmas Break is a great time to schedule their liposuction procedure. But hurry, these appointments always go fast!

How Long Do CoolSculpting Results Take?

Like liposuction, CoolSculpting can remove stubborn areas of fat that resist diet and exercise – but it is not a weight loss tool.

CoolSculpting is non-surgical and non-invasive – giving it the advantage of having virtually no “downtime” and no period of recovery. However, CoolSculpting, involves multiple treatments.

Patients typically begin to see results within 4-5 weeks, although it may take 3 to 6 months to deliver complete and final results.

So, while CoolSculpting is less invasive, less uncomfortable, and has less downtime, seeing results takes more treatments – and the results take much longer to be visible.

If you book a CoolSculpting appointment in December, you will likely see some – but not complete – results by New Years day. 

How Long Do Tummy Tuck Results Take?

A tummy tuck (also called abdominoplasty) is a more invasive procedure than liposuction or CoolSculpting. A tummy tuck tightens “flabby” skin and loose muscle, while liposuction or CoolSculpting only remove excess fat.

Immediately following your tummy tuck, loose, sagging skin will be gone – but some swelling will continue. Gradually the swelling decreases over a period of several weeks, revealing the firm, tight skin and muscles.

A tummy tuck typically requires general anesthesia. An incision is made across the lower in order to remove excess abdominal skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. This does result in a longer recovery time and more intense discomfort. So, once again, if your job offers you time off over the holiday, it can be an ideal time to consider a tummy tuck.

Scheduling a tummy tuck in early December will reveal a tighter abdomen by New Years.  But, realistically, because it is a more invasive surgery, it will be late January before complete results of your tummy tuck will be visible. Additionally, if you elect to have a tummy tuck during the holidays – care must be taken not to “overdo it” during your recovery period. Let Santa do the lifting and delivering of packages, while you sit back and sip a hot cocoa!

How to Look Thinner on Zoom (Part 1)

8 Ways to Look Thinner on Zoom (Part 1) – 

There have been many surprising changes to our lifestyles during the pandemic. One of these is that many of us our finding ourselves “on camera” and being videoed for the first time in our life. And, whether we are participants or presenters in Zoom meetings, we are all becoming acutely aware that the old adage is true: “the camera adds ten pounds.”

And while some Zoom meeting just involve a few close colleagues, others are taped for broadcast, watching and re-watching company-wide. Couple this with the fact that many of us have gained a few (or fifteen) extra pounds from the more sedentary stay-at-home lifestyle of the quarantine – and both women and men are becoming increasingly concerned about looking chubby on camera.

The good news is that there are both “camera tricks” and aesthetic treatments that can make you appear slimmer on camera (and off!). In addition to using lighting, highlighting and camera angles to your advantage, Dr. Ali offers the fastest and safest aesthetic procedures for losing the “quarantine fifteen” so you look more like a celebrity – and less like a couch potato on camera.

Camera Tricks to Look Thinner in Zoom Meetings

Let’s first start with some easy “basics” here, to looking thinner on Zoom and other video platforms.

#1. Camera Placement: Make sure your camera is at eye level to look thinner.

If the camera is below you, and angled up, everyone is getting a birds-eye view of the underside of your chin. And, unless you’re a fit twenty-five year old (or George Clooney), looking up at the flesh beneath the chin is rarely a flattering angle.

#2. Body Placement: Sit at a slight angle to the camera to look thinner on Zoom.

Most people sit facing the camera directly…often leaning back slightly. This will make your face and body look wider and more square. Think “side-saddle” when sitting in your office chair, which places your body at a more slimming 45 degree angle to the camera.

And, leaning back accentuates both the belly and (double) chin. So, don’t forget to sit up straight! In addition to making you look more confident and professional, pressing the shoulders back will help elongate the neck and make the face look slimmer, too!

#3. Head Placement: Tilt the forehead slightly forward to look thinner on Zoom.

This is an old photographers’ “trick” that works equally well on Zoom and in videos, as it does in still photos. Tilting the forehead slightly forward will make the face look longer and less round. It also casts a shadow over the chin, concealing any excess fat below the jaw.

#4. Wear Dark, Fitted Clothing: Avoid vertical stripes, loud prints and baggy clothes to look thinner on Zoom.

In person, your colleagues can tell where your clothes end and you begin. But on a smaller video screen wide or loose clothes simply make your body look wide, too. Additionally, anything that draws the eye from side to side – like horizontal stripes – also makes you look bigger. And busy patterns and bright colors also draw the eye’s focus to the body.

#5. Contour with Make-Up or an Angled Beard: this reduces the chin’s appearance in women or men with “shadowing.”

For hundreds of years men have been hiding their double chins with a well-trimmed beard! The sharper the angles of the beard, the squarer the jaw will appear. Women can achieve a similar illusion of a slimmer face by creating subtle shadows around the jawline, along the sides of the face, and under the cheekbones with well-placed contouring. (see illustrations, below).

Aesthetic Treatments to Look Thinner on Zoom

These “tricks” can certainly help you look thinner when on camera. But the reality is, camera angles can only go so far to disguise unwanted fat on the face and body. Fortunately, there are three fast, affordable and non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures offered at AMAE Med Spa in the Detroit area that can actually permanently get rid of unwanted fat on the face and the body.

How to Look Thinner on Zoom (Part 2)

8 Ways to Look Thinner on Zoom (Part 2) – 

In Part 1 of this Article we revealed 5 camera “tricks” that can help you look thinner when on camera, whether in Zoom meetings, Facetiming or taking Selfies. But the reality is, camera angles can only go so far to disguise unwanted fat on the face and body. Fortunately, there are three fast, affordable and non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures offered at AMAE Med Spa in the Detroit area that can actually permanently get rid of unwanted fat on the face and the body.

With non-invasive CoolSculpting for body or double chin, Kybella double chin injections, and/or liposuction, you can permanently get rid of unwanted fat so that you look great on camera … and “IRL” when things get back to normal!

Aesthetic Treatments to Look Thinner on Zoom

#1. Kybella Double Chin Injections to Look Thinner on Zoom

Kybella eliminates a double chin through a series of injections under the jaw that “dissolve” the fat cells. The destroyed fat cells are then eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes.

Most Kybella patients see a 50 percent fat reduction after just two sessions, and a 70 percent reduction after four Kybella treatments – meaning your face can look 70% thinner in Zoom meetings with Kybella!

#2. CoolSculpting Fat Loss to Look Thinner on Zoom

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that literally freezes away unwanted fat almost anywhere on the body – including the chin, for which it was recently FDA approved.

Once the fat cells are frozen and destroyed, they are gradually expelled from the body through natural elimination processes and can never come back.

Because it takes a while for the body to absorb and eliminate the frozen fat cells, CoolSculpting results take longer than liposuction to be visible – with results beginning to appear 4 to 5 weeks after treatment, and 3 to 5 months to deliver final results.

#3. Liposuction to Look Thinner on Zoom (and “IRL”!)

Liposuction offers the largest amount of fat loss with the most rapidly visible results. Liposuction can be used as a body contouring technique – safely removing up to 11 pounds of unwanted fat. It is also an ideal tool for sculpting the face, neck and double chin.

Only local anesthetic is required for modern liposuction, which is less invasive. And, unlike CoolSculpting or Kybella, liposuction requires only one treatment, and the results are visible as soon as swelling subsides!

While there is some downtime after liposuction, many patients have found that it’s an ideal time to come in for lipo – since thy can work-from-home while they are recovering … and no one will even know they had anything done.

Aesthetic Treatments to Look Thinner on Zoom

It’s proven that the camera does add 10 pounds to a person’s appearance! And, in addition to being more aware of our appearance on camera thanks to increased Zoom and Facetime, many of us have packed on the “quarantine 15” due to more time snacking a home and less time being active. But whether your motivation to look thinner is Zoom meetings or “real life” board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali has the aesthetic fat loss treatments to make your face and body look thinner, younger and more well-proportioned.

Schedule a fat loss consultation with Dr. Ali, in person or via video chat, and see which fat loss treatments will make you look like a star every day!
