Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D., Moves His Plastic Surgery Practice to Birmingham to Become New Medical Director at Rivage Day Spa
Board-Certified plastic surgeon Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D., who has a sterling reputation as a plastic surgeon in the Detroit area, is moving his plastic surgery/MedSpa practice, Birmingham Plastic Surgery, from Bloomfield Hills to Birmingham. Dr. Karaca’s new location will be 210 South Old Woodward Avenue, Suite 250, the current location of Rivage Day Spa, where he will become the Medical Director.
As Dr. Karaca’s practice has transformed gradually from strictly a surgical practice to one that is geared towards anti-aging office-based procedures, using multiple tools such as radiofrequency based Thermismooth250™, Sublative facial treatments and a full complement of fillers and fat reducing methods, he has successfully established himself as the premier plastic surgeon in the area.
Breast Reduction Made Easy
Dr. Ahmet Karaca understands the emotional and physical discomforts that many women with very large breasts experience. Patients seek Dr. Karaca’s expertise to find relief from conditions such as back, neck and shoulder pain, chronic dermatitis beneath the breasts, deep indentations in the shoulders from tight bra straps and extreme self-consciousness.
During his 24 years in private practice, Dr. Karaca has performed more than 1,200 breast-reduction procedures, many times the number commonly performed by most plastic surgeons. His patients experience dramatic, life-changing results.
They may go from a double D cup or a double F cup to a more comfortable C cup, Dr. Karaca says. The day after surgery, patients will tell me, Oh, my back feels so much better. Patients have better-proportioned figures, their clothes fit better, and it’s easier for them to take part in physical activities. They feel better, and they say they wish they had had the procedure sooner.
Circumferential Liposuction Key To Shapelier Legs
When plastic surgeon Ahmet R. Karaca, M.D., began offering his patients liposuction of the calves and ankles in 1986, little had been written on the subject. So he paved the way, learning by trial and error how not only to thin the lower legs but also to make thick ankles, calves, and thighs shapelier.
Dr. Karaca started performing the technique carefully but found the more aggressive he was, the better the result. He discovered that many of his patients benefited when he addressed more than a localized area and instead suctioned around the circumference of the thighs, calves or ankles.
This led to circumferential liposuction, a procedure he performs on about 50 percent of his liposuction patients who need suctioning around the thighs and on about 80 percent of those who want their calves and ankles thinned, said Dr. Karaca.
The Way We Live – Breast Surgery
“When I was 18, I looked like somebody’s grandmother,” recalls a Livonia homemaker whose breasts had grown so big by the time she was 16, “there was no such thing as a cup size that would fit me.” Her bosom was particularly burdensome because she was only five feet tall.
