Dr. Michael Gray / Liposuction on upper arms

1 West Bloomfield, MI, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Very dissatisfied with liposuction/smart lipo on upper arms. They are still the same circumference almost a year later. I experienced no skin tightening as promised by the advertisements for Smart Lipo, my arms are stil just as big, but now they look worse because the fullness has been reduced but the circumference is the same. I still can't fit my arms into shirts that fit me elsewhere, and my upper arms look like soft balloons when they are relaxed at my side. He said he looks at results based on the arms being held outward, but who walks around with their arms outstretched? Also, when I told him they were the same circumference, he said he never said they would be smaller, only that the fat would be reduced by 50-75%. Tell me, why would I undergo liposuction if it wouldn't make the area smaller? I was very specific about why I wanted the lipo done (size reduction) and at my consult he never said I shouldn't expect that. Plus, he's a really nice man when you first meet him, and if you are pleased with your results he's probably even nicer, but as soon as you make it clear you are not satisfied he gets very difficult to talk to and he will try to sell you additional procedures (Thermage or some laser procedure) to "enhance" the results. He gets rude and impatient. He has shown no interest in appeasing me, or in my obvious dissatisfaction, or even in my well-being as I am upset to have spent so much money and now I can't even wear tank tops without embarrassment. My arms look awful and he doesn't even care. He is only interested in himself and his ego. He had a MySpace page where he listed himself as his hero, but I mentioned how pornographic it was on another board and, lo and behold, I can't find him on MySpace anymore! He should be ashamed of himself. He's a doctor, not board certified in Plastic Surgery or Cosmetic Surgery, but a DO who does cosmetic surgery. He advertises himself all over the place and it seems everyone is so happy with his results, but if you look at www.doctorscorecard.com you'll see the other side of him.

    DO NOT GO TO DR MICHAEL GRAY. PLEASE DON'T GO! CHOOSE SOMEONE ELSE. I AM IN DEBT FOR 4000 DOLLARS, MY BUFFALO HUMP IS STILL HERE AND MY BREAST LOOK THE SAME(SAGGY AND LONG) THE RESULTS ARE DISCOURAGING. DO NOT LISTEN TO HIS GOOD JOBS, GO TO SOMEONE WHO HAS A MAJORITY OF GOOD WORK. HIS OFFICE WORKERS ARE PREJUIDICE AND CURT WITH YOU UNLESS YOU PAY MONEY FOR HIS TWO EXPENSIVE CARS. I DIDN'T RETURN TO HIM AFTER HE TOLD ME IT WAS OK AFTER SEEING THE SKIN ON MY NIPPLES TEAR OFF. PLEASE DO NOT GO TO HIM, THIS IS A MESSAGE FROM GOD. I DID NOT LISTEN.

    My mom had lipo in her lips and under arm area and had great results. I had a hacked boob job from another doctor and Dr. Michael Gray fixed them. They are beautiful. He also fixed my acne scarring on my face that other doctors couldn't fix. If you look online, almost any doctor is going to have compliants. However, Dr. Gray performs surgery 3 days a week and with so many operations, of course you are going to see more compliants than another doctor who only does surgeries one day a week.

    Tip: I picked my first boob doctor because he was nice and took the time with me. Was he experienced, yes, but only did surgery one day a week. In fact when I had issues with mine, he told me he couldn't fix them. Dr Gray redid them and had to sew muscle back to my breast bone. He knew exactly what needed to be done and make them look very real. I don't trust any other dr other than Dr Gray.

    well smart lipo is a gimmick.. it does not really work... It intends to work only a very small area less than 500 cc... this is according to the manufacture of the equipment (cynosure ).. if you go online, you will see so many complaints about smart lipo. Smart lipo is pretty dumb itself... it s a sell gimmick and many people fall for it because they dont know any better

    I don't know this Dr but I know from experience that if you want cosmetic surgery PLEASE only go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. It may cost more initally but in the long run you will save dollars and tears by seeing someone qualified.

    Dr, Gray has done my mother, and sisters surgery with excellent results. The woman above is upset that she was tols as my sister was that the skin tightening IS unpredictable and he recommends surgical excision if you want to definitely see results. She is just pissed that she made the wrong choice

    I had a scar from where my ex used to smuggle heroin inside my body through the airport. Dr. Gray turned it into a nice pouch to store my metrocard in. Dr. Gray is very nice, and he makes nice treats to eat because he is also a pastry chef.

    Please, when having any surgery, do your homework. For cosmetics results, only go to Board Certified Surgeons. You would not go to a foot doctor to remove s tooth. I have seen very bad work done by dr's want to be.
