Get Bikini Body Ready Now!

Bloomfield Hills, MI – The temperatures may be dropping outside, but if you are thinking you might want to have plastic surgery before summer rolls back around, now is actually the perfect time to do it.

“Getting bikini body ready can’t happen overnight,” says Dr. Ali, a Michigan plastic surgeon. “And if you aren’t seeing the results you want after diet and exercise, and are thinking about a cosmetic procedure, it’s important that you take into account recovery time. Recovery from most procedures isn’t instantaneous, and you’ll want to be sure you are pain-free before scheduling vacations or beach trips. So the earlier you plan your surgeries, the better.”

So what are the top surgeries that can help you be ready for summer?

1. Liposuction
Lipo slims and reshapes specific areas of the body through removal of fat deposits. It also can improve the proportion and contour of your body. The best areas for liposuction are the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, upper arms, inner knee, back, neck and chin, calves, and ankles. It can take several months for the swelling associated with liposuction to fully subside, so be sure you plan your procedure accordingly.

2. Breast augmentation
If you would like fuller breasts to fill out your bikini this year, a breast augmentation can provide beautiful results. The initial recovery period is several days, but it can take a few weeks for the pain and swelling to subside, and for you to see the final results.

3. Breast lift
Breast lift procedures continue to increase in popularity for women who simply want to rejuvenate their appearance. The procedure will not significantly change the size or shape of the breast, but will help a woman regain the youthful appearance and firmness of her breasts. It can take a month or more for all swelling and bruising to go away and for the results to be visible.

4. Brazilian butt lift
If you want a fuller, rounder butt to fill out your bikini bottom, a Brazilian butt lift is your answer. Fat is removed from other areas of your body, and re-injected into your buttocks. The result is a fuller, rounder and lifted bottom that is beach ready. It can take at least three weeks to recover from a butt lift procedure, during which time you can’t sit on your backside.

5. Tummy tuck
A tummy tuck is a great way to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen, while also stretngthening weakened or stretched stomach muscles. The result is a smoother and firmer looking belly. Many women, especially those who have had children, love the results a tummy tuck can provide. Recovery from an abdominoplasty can take a few weeks.

“It’s ideal to have one of these procedures a couple of months prior to wanting to be bikini ready,” says Dr. Ali. “That way, you have allowed yourself ample time to fully recover, you will no longer experience any pain or swelling, and your incision will have begun to heal and fade.”

If you have tried diet and exercise and just can’t get the results you want, cosmetic surgery can provide you with the look you’ve worked hard for. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Ali today.

What Can a Brazilian Butt Lift Do for You?

Bloomfield Hills, MI – Are you looking for a way to better fill out your jeans or that little black dress, and aren’t seeing the results you want after all your hard work at the gym?

Sometimes, through diet and exercise, our bodies respond well and provide us with the results we want. Other times, we need a bit of help to get our desired outcome. That’s where Bloomfield Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ali comes in. His expertise with the Brazilian butt lift can have you feeling more confident than ever before.

A Brazilian butt lift can give you a fuller, more lifted bottom, without the hassle of a surgical procedure. While a butt implant procedure requires surgery, stitches and a bit of a lengthy recovery time, a Brazilian butt lift is a simpler fast transfer procedure.

The procedure uses your own fat, so it is the most natural way to enhance your bottom. During the procedure, Dr. Ali will use liposuction to harvest fat from your body, making sure to keep the body symmetrical and contoured. Fat may be removed from the area just above the buttocks, the stomach or the thighs.

Once removed, the fat will be processed and purified before being re-injected into the buttocks. Dr. Ali will inject small amounts of fat in different areas of the buttocks, and at different depths, to ensure the most fat possible will be absorbed. Dr. Ali pays close attention to detail to ensure a smooth and natural looking appearance to your newly enhanced and lifted buttocks.

Proper candidates for a Brazilian butt lift must be in good overall health and at a stable and healthy weight. Weight loss after the procedure can affect the outcome. Additionally, patients should not smoke or drink excessively as this can interfere with the procedure and recovery.

Women who are very thin may not be good candidates for this plastic surgery procedure as they may not have enough fat to be removed. Because the fat must be processed before being re-injected into the buttocks, it may take three to four times the amount of fat needed for the lift.

Your surgeon will provide you with after care instructions. It is important that you follow your surgeon’s advice closely for the best result. You should plan to be on bed rest for the first week following your Brazilian butt lift, with no direct pressure placed on your buttocks. You will not be able to sit directly on your buttocks for the next two to three weeks after the procedure. You should avoid driving at this time. A compression garment should be worn 24 hours a day for the first two weeks.

You can resume all normal activities within a month following your procedure, although slight swelling may occur for up to six weeks. If you have any questions during your recovery period, call Dr. Ali’s office.

When the fat is properly removed, processed and re-injected correctly, you will enjoy a long lasting result. This is why choosing a surgeon who is well-qualified, such as Dr. Ali, is so important. When performed by a properly trained and experienced surgeon, your results should be permanent.

If you’ve done all you can through diet and exercise, but still don’t have the shape you desire, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ali today. A Brazilian butt lift can provide a beautiful, naturally fuller looking buttock that will have you turning heads.

Saving Your Skin This Summer

Like our clients, we love escaping the cold Michigan winters and welcoming the warmer summer temperatures!  Being able to enjoy ourselves outside is something that we certainly don’t take for granted, thanks to the harsh climate of Michigan.

However, the summer can wreak havoc on your skin!  Between the excessive sun, the water and the heat, your skin can be left feeling less than flawless.  We have some tips to keep your skin healthy and glowing all summer long.

1.  Sunscreen, sunscreen and MORE sunscreen!  We cannot stress the importance of sunscreen enough.  It is the best thing you can do to keep your skin safe and to prevent wrinkles and aging. Amae carries high-quality sunscreen products from Image and other top skin-care lines.

2.  Hydrate!  The skin is predominantly water – it is important that you increase your water intake, as the summer heat is so dehydrating.

3.  Moisturize!  We highly recommend considering an oil-free moisturizer for summer as well as adding a tinted moisturizer to your makeup regiment.  Making sure you keep your skin moisturized will help you stay glowing all summer long! Contact us for help selecting the perfect moisturizer and skin care regimen from Image, NeoCutis or Obagi.

4.  Get a facial!  This is a good skin care practice to have year round, but especially in the summer.  Skin can become dull, and a facial is sure to brighten it up! Amae offers a variety of facial options.
