Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures in the world and for Michigan women. Did you know there are 2 different types of liposuction: External Ultrasonic Assisted liposuction and SmartLipo MPX. External Ultrasonic Assisted liposuction (EUAL) involves after Tumescent fluid is infused into the fat, high frequency sound waves are then applied to weaken the bonds between the fat cells. This allows for a greater number of fat cells to be removed. Smartlipo MPX when used allows for greater weakening of the bonds between fat cells yielding even greater amounts of fat cells to be removed, smooths the fat assisting in the reduction of cellulite, and the heat that is generated causes the skin the tighten and shrink. Dr. Gray goes on to add, that the skill of the physician is directly responsible for the results obtained.
2. Breast Augmentation
Women’s breasts have been enlarged all over America for many years. In fact, cosmetic surgeons perform approximately 300,000 breast augmentation procedures every year. This procedure is undertaken to either enlarge the breasts or make them more symmetrical. Breast augmentation can help to boost confidence and is ideal for those individuals whom wish to restore their breasts after pregnancy, improve their breasts they have or obtain more symmetry when severe asymmetry exists. Dr. Gray has been a pioneer in the development of ‘Scarless’ Breast Augmentation where he can also place implants through the belly button so that there are no chest scars, quicker recovery and less risks of any issues post-op. EndoBAM or Endoscopic Breast Augmentation Mammoplasty or Traditional Augmentation is why women from all over the world seek out the talents of Dr. Michael W. Gray.
Also known as a “Tummy tuck”, abdominoplasty involves removing any excess skin and the underlying fat from the abdomen and the surrounding area.

Typically the women seeking out a tummy tuck would consider this if they had hanging skin over their wasit or trying to tighten the skin they have. However, many women who have neither these complaints are also seeking out Dr. Gray to obtain an Houglass Tummy Tuck! Why? To be skinny! Even if you do not have loose skin, the Hourglass Tummy Tuck can make you skinnier than diet or exercise or even liposuction. The Hourglass Tummy Tuck (HGTT) is a procedure developed by Dr. Gray that Flattens the abdomen by cinching the abdominal wall, removes more skin and fat than a traditional tummy tuck, all without the pain of a traditional Tuck.

Michigan women who have recently given birth or who have lost a lot of weight quickly often opt for this procedure. This is because fast weight loss can often result in excess skin.
Blepharoplasty for upper and lower lids, involves removing skin and possibly fat of upper eye lid eyelids to either improve vision or for cosmetic reasons. The procedure that is selected for the Lower eyelids is depended on the problem at hand. If on the lower lods there are bags and wrinkles then a Lower Lid Transconjunctival Bleph can be performed where a small incision is made in the back of the eyelid to extract the fat which causes the “bag” and then a laser can be added heat to iron the wrinkles away and further tighten the skin. If excess skin exists on the lower lid, the subciliary bleph (under eye incision may be selected). The subciliary blep allows for fat extraction and the reduction of the thick muscle under the lid as well.
5. Upper Lip Lift
The upper lip lift is a quick procedure to produce a greater width of the lip where fillers can only fill. Most women who do the upper lip lift do not go on to do fillers but some do. The upper lip lift actually produces a lip by everting the lip while hiding the scar into the natural crease under the nose. This procedure was originally developed to decrease the distance between the lip and nose. Current trends have shifted its use to mainly producing beautiful lips.
Soft tissue fillers are quite a popular procedure. While fillers are designed to fill depressions and lasers are designed to smooth. Wrinkles (like an iron) are best treated with heat. Fillers are used to add volume to the lips, cheeks, nasal folds (laugh lines), marionette lines, deep glabella creases. Most Fillers are temporary solutions to a permanent problem. Dr. Gray has been using the most natural filler that exist for over 25 years called Alloderm. This permanent filler retains 50% of the fill forever and feels natural as it is natural. Alloderm is a solid strip of human collagen which is the natural fill of the body unlike synthetics. Call Dr. Gray or visit anewyou.com to find out more.
A rhytidectomy, also known as a “Facelift” is another popular procedure. This procedure can help to get rid of sagging skin of the face and neck. When Dr. Gray does his facelift he has developed a technique that also reshapes the neck anatomy to provide a sharper contour and angles of the neck. This technique he does on all his facelifts that is why you see more right angles between the jaw and the neckline. A facelift can be performed with other procedures such a laser resurfacing to improve the wrinkles, upper lip lift, eyelids, fillers and more.
