Radiesse is Approved for filling hands!

Like that famous song goes, raising your hands and showing them will not be so embarrassing anymore. With the recent approval of Radiesse for filling the back if the hand we have added another filler to our armament against aging.

As we age the earlobes thin, the fullness in the lips diminishes, cheeks look sunken and the volume in the hands disappears. The fat in these areas lessen and in the hands this results in tendons and veins becoming more visible.

RADIESSE dermal filler is made of unique, patented, calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in a water-based gel carrier. These microspheres initially perform as a filler, providing volume to give you a soft, natural look. Over time, the body will gradually absorb the gel carrier, but the very tiny, smooth microspheres will remain to keep the skin looking it’s best. The effects of Radiesse last 9 – 12 months.

RADIESSE is one of a few long lasting fillers that exist. Using fillers that are permanent make more sense to fix a permanent problem. Although radiesse is temporary, it serves as a stepping stone toward using permanent fillers like Fat and Alloderm.

Radiesse was recently approved for use in the hand to restore the hands to a more youthful appearance. Fat transfer ( a permanent filler ) to the back of the hands remains the gold standard on restoring volume to areas where permanent correction is desired. Fat has been used for years in the hands as well as the cheeks or buttocks when permanency is desired.
Radiesse is not intended for injection into the lips but can be used in nasal folds, marionettes, cheeks and earlobes and now the back of the hand. Radiesse is not used for the treatment of superficial fine lines and wrinkles. (Restylane, Juvederm, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels work better for wrinkles).
With RADIESSE you can expect no downtime and no restrictions. This is the same as you might expect with any type of injection.

Martin Short’s tribute to David Letterman

Dr. Michael Gray No Comments

david blog 2

Martin Short’s tribute to David Letterman during his final show was a satirical comment on the reality of aging and the body’s need of restoration. The age of “Oldem” is fast approaching us all and the body needs maintenance as does any aging structure.

According to Dr. Michael W. Gray a leader in Cosmetic Surgery (West Bloomfield, Michigan ) people  need to realize that there is a difference between restoration, rejuvenation and distortion. He states “what most people see in the media as unusual cosmetic procedures are not the norm but rather the terrible.”  He states, “When Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is done properly people will look normal and restored to a more youthful state.  Not distorted!”

Whether it’s resurfacing your skin with Lasers or chemical peels or painting your home, your skin will age and wrinkle and slowly deteriorate over time.

Your body will need maintenance and cosmetic surgery has never been easier.  With all the technology that is available, Dr. Gray at the Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center has many surgical and non-surgical methods of restoring youth.

Double Double toil and Trouble! FDA Approves Kybella

Dr. Michael Gray No Comments


 The Food and Drug Administration has approved a new injection designed to melt away double-chin fat.

Don’t get your hopes up. Although Kybella was approved, the path to obtaining results is dangerous and more painful that doing liposuction alone.

Kybella, is aimed at adults with moderate-to-severe fat below the chin known as:  Submental fat or the “Double chin”.   Kybella is administered as an injection into the fatty tissue below the chin. Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a chemical that is naturally produced by the body and helps the body absorb fat. Deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells by breaking down the cell membrane. The danger of Kybella is if the chemical comes in contact with skin of the neck it can cause serious damage to the skin and form ulcerations and skin death which would leave the neck scarred for life.  When evaluating the risk versus the benefits of Kybella and comparing to the risks and benefits of doing liposuction to the neck, the value of Kybella in the world of Cosmetic Surgery disappears.  Because of the dangers of the chemical Kybella coming in contact with the skin of the neck minute quantities of Kybella must be used and spread deep into the fat to assure the chemical does not reach the skin.  Thus, patients may have to receive up to 50 painful injections per treatment, with up to six treatments needed no less than one month apart.  Post injection there will be bruising and swelling and pain producing a recovery time where patients may need to hide out during this recovery phase.  It is not recommended to do more than 6 injections spaced one month apart. If results are not adequate after six injections no further injections are allowed and patients must seek out other options (liposuction).

In evaluating the benefits of Kybella and comparing it to External Ultrasonic Liposuction with or without Smart-Lipo MPX “laser lipo” there is no value to Kybella.  Although approved by the FDA, the practicality of Kybella is more for marketing rather than efficacy or usefulness.  The Kybella injection causes inflammation, bruising and pain and will need to be endured six times!  In practicality, Kybella makes no sense.   Why would anyone undergo this type of treatment when External Ultrasonic Liposuction is a one time treatment with less bruising and requires minimal if any down time.

Although a drug (Kybella) exists now for double chins, the risks and painful recovery of this procedure far outweigh any Benefits.

Where Did Dr. Gray’s TheraSCAR Come From?

Patients often only remember surgery or trauma by the Scar that is left behind. A Scar when formed is a permanent mark on the skin and a constant reminder of the physical or emotional trauma.
Dr. Gray realized early on that the key to successful healing is to influence how the scar will heal from the beginning.

In trying to obtain a product that his patients can use, Dr. Gray noticed a common feature amongst the scar products on the market…”THEY DID NOT WORK!”

Frustrated over the lack of a single product on the market for his patients that actually helped scars,
Dr. Gray conducted research to develop a product that would contain the essential ingredients needed for skin rejuvenation. The goal was to assist to body to do what it was actually designed to do…HEAL!

After many years of evaluating the efficacy and aesthetics of the product, Dr. Gray’s TheraSCAR was developed.

TheraSCAR when used as directed produces effective and consistent healing amongst a variety of skin types.

TheraSCAR is a Non-surgical treatment of skin injuries created to aid the body in the development of the most optimal environment for skin healing. Dr. Gray believes that it was better to have a product that could help skin heal in the beginning rather than trying to undo the scar after it was healed. Thus he developed a product that could be applied safely to the skin at the beginning of an injury while mitigating the forces that would cause poor skin healing.

Like all topical treatments, TheraSCAR may not work for everyone. Everyone is a little different. But for the majority it does help.

purse Just like buying Lubiton shoes or carrying a Chanel or Gucci hand bag there are enhancing procedures that when performed take your beauty to a heightened level.

There are many procedures that exist to correct many issues people have with their body but often patients are unaware that these procedures exist. It is often these secondary procedures that enhance your appearance over just doing the primary procedure.

Correcting issues with the nipple and areola are easy and quick procedures. Whether the nipple is inverted, to large or too short or if the areola is too large, too small, or herniated (puffy) Dr. Michael W. Gray a world renowned cosmetic surgeon located in West Bloomfield, Michigan states that more than ever patients are seeking these ancillary procedures to compliment their breast augmentation.

Although procedures like these are not as common as liposuction or breast augmentation there place in cosmetic surgery are well founded and provide patients with gratifying results.

My face is falling off

Is your youthful face becoming filled with new creases, lines, wrinkles, droops and other features that make you look older and more tired than you actually feel? Welcome to the world of “OLDEM”.

Although you have seen in the news celebrities like Michael Jackson, Bruce Jenner, Joan Rivers, Melanie Griffith, Donatella Versace and many more, Dr. Gray a world renowned cosmetic surgeon (West Bloomfield, Michigan) states that when done correctly these results are not the norm.

“There’s no right or wrong age to get a facelift,” says Dr. Michael W. Gray of the Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa (West Bloomfield, Michigan) “In a consult I review all the options my patients have in order for them to make a decision on how aggressive they wish to be in treating the problems they are experiencing with their face or their body.” Dr. Gray goes on to say, “Some patients seek out a facelift, necklift or even a tummy tuck not for the purpose of removing skin but rather to change the shape of their neck and jawline, and in the case of an Hour Glass Tummy Tuck ( http://hourglasstuck.com/ ) to flatten the abdominal wall and slim the waistline.” With Dr. Gray’s exclusive procedures and techniques (Hour Glass Tuck, Neck Sling (http://www.anewyou.com/head-neck/neck-sling/) and even with the methods he has developed to reshape the face during a facelift or Necklift) he has been able to find the fountain of youth for his patients and help them turn back the clock to regain their self-confidence.
