Getting Rid of a Turkey Neck

Posted on March 17, 2014 by Dr. Ringler

Turkey NeckA very common complaint we hear from men and women is that they hate their neck, and more specifically, they want to get rid of their “turkey neck.”  It isn’t surprising given that the skin on the neck is one of the first to show signs of aging.  Frequently when we apply sunscreen, the exposed area of the neck is neglected.  It is fairly apparent to many people who notice the skin under their chin looks pretty good, while the skin at the bottom of their neck looks saggy, wrinkled or bumpy.

Some people have a genetic predisposition toward a sagging neck, but many people don’t begin to notice the…

Weightloss & Liposution in Grand Rapids, MI

Much to the disappointment of many of our patients, liposuction, Coolsculpting and Exilis Elite are not procedures that result in much weight loss.  They do help to sculpt and reshape the body.  All of these procedures do destroy fat cells permanently, but the end result of the procedures is that the body is more balanced and proportional.

We offer several types of liposuction, from SmartLipo Triplex, which is a triple wave length laser form of liposuction, Body-Jet liposuction which uses water to dislodge the fat cells, and Continue Reading...

Is Liposuction Obsolete?

Posted on September 3, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

 It seems every few months there are new options for controlling unwanted areas of fat that tend to appear on our bodies as we age.  We’re all too familiar with them; post pregnancy loose skin and excess tummy fat, those love-handles that appear at the flanks that we aren’t in love with, or the little muffin-top at the top of our jeans that just doesn’t seem to budge with diet and exercise.  Looking for an answer to how best to solve the problem is not always easy.  There are more options than ever  for reducing fat without surgery; CoolSculpting, Exilis Elite, Zerona, and newcomers on…

CoolSculpting Gains Popularity with Men

Posted on August 13, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

The battle of the bulge is nothing new, and even those guys who work out rigorously and watch their diet can be frustrated by those love handles or tummy bulge that remains despite our best efforts.

A couple of years ago the Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery became the first plastic surgery office in Michigan to introduce Coolsculpting as a body contouring option to our patients who wanted to treat those stubborn areas without the downtime of surgery.

Coolsculpting utilizes Cryolipolysis (fat freezing), which was developed after researchers fully understood what happens when humans get frostbite: fat cells freeze before skin freezes. Cryolipolysis works…

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

Posted on February 4, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

New mothers are often so thrilled with their new baby, that it is often not until a year or two post-partum that women begin to feel that the body that they assumed would “bounce back” following the baby, has not done so. The process of gaining and losing weight as one does during a pregnancy, breast- feeding resulting in a loss of breast volume, separation of the stomach muscle (diastasis) and loose skin, are often complaints that we hear from women who are seeking a mommy makeover. These issues can occur regardless of whether the woman has gotten back to her pre-pregnancy weight and are ones that are not…

Most Common Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

Posted on November 20, 2012 by Dr. Ringler

Although men still only represent about 10% of plastic surgery patients nationally, we have experienced a significant increase in men seeking plastic surgery over the past few years. According to a recent article by ASAPS, here are some of the more common complaints that men express as they age, and how they can best be addressed.

Even with diet and exercise, maintaining a fat free physique is a complaint we often hear in our practice. Fortunately, with body contouring procedures ranging from the non-surgical CoolSculpting procedure to several different types of liposuction, many of these problems can be addressed fairly easily. Just as with women, men who are close to…

Grand Rapids Liposuction

Posted on November 16, 2011 by Dr. Ringler

While liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a weight loss solution, it is a valuable tool for improving specific trouble areas of the body which have stubborn fatty deposits. Liposuction is ideal for people who are healthy, and basically in good shape, but are struggling with a specific area of their body which, for whatever reason, has been resistant to change through diet and exercise alone. Often a liposuction procedure may be done in conjunction with other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation and facial surgery.

Dr. Ringler offers various types of liposuction and body contouring options. SmartLipo Triplex, Body-Jet, and the…
