Plastic Surgery Practice in Grand Rapids Specializes in Combined Procedures

Share Article

Partners in Plastic Surgery of West Michigan goes one step beyond the traditional cosmetic surgery options by specializing in complementary combined procedures, such as combining a face lift in Michigan with eyelid surgery or a brow lift.

Partners in Plastic Surgery of West Michigan, a plastic surgery practice in Grand Rapids, are offering their patients complementary combined procedures in order to help improve multiple areas of the body and face, contributing to a comprehensive rejuvenation or contouring. Along with a new practice name, changed from the original Center for Breast and Body Contouring, the addition of facial services also reflect the practice's expansion.

Dr. Dennis Hammond expands on the practice's addition of facial services, saying, "We like to offer our patients an array of procedures aimed at making the surgical process easier for them. When they come to our practice for a face lift but have concerns regarding the upper facial area, we might recommend that they combine a brow lift or eyelid surgery with their face lift in Michigan. By combining these procedures, downtime is reduced from having each procedure performed separately."

In the past, cosmetic surgery was limited one procedure at a time, and limited surgical techniques also did not allow for very comprehensive contouring. Now, Dr. Hammond, Dr. Ewa Timek, and Dr. Andrea Van Pelt provide up-to-date surgical techniques that help to not only reduce surgical time, but reduce recovery time as well. In addition, combining surgical procedures allows for a more complete and thorough rejuvenation, whether the procedures are addressing the body, facial area, or breasts.

Dr. Timek states, "The surgeons at Partners in Plastic Surgery enjoy helping our patients as much as possible. That is why it is so important to us to give our patients what they want – better results with minimized downtime." Building on this, Dr. Van Pelt adds, "Our patients appreciate that we are able to combine procedures to better fit their needs and achieve their cosmetic goals. Their lives are busy, so it gives us great pleasure to know we are helping to make their surgical experience a little easier while creating beautiful results."

Partners in Plastic Surgery of West Michigan offer surgical and non-surgical procedures to help contour and rejuvenate areas of the face, breasts, and body. With Dr. Hammond's experience with breast and body procedures, combined with Dr. Timek and Dr. Van Pelt's experience with facial plastic surgery, the surgeons work together to provide beautiful results and provide the full complement of aesthetic procedures from head to toe. From procedures such as tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation, Grand Rapids patients have several options to choose from when considering cosmetic surgery. Because every case is different, the surgeons at Partners in Plastic Surgery create a special surgical plan designed specifically for each one of their patients.
