For the increasing number of patients who seek out cosmetic surgery, Detroit-based Dr. Vasileff helps them look and feel their very best. Whether his patients in Detroit want rhinoplasty, breast augmentation or skin rejuvenation, Dr. Vasileff consistently delivers dramatic, yet natural-looking results. His specialties include:

  • Facial Sculpting: Dr. Vasileff performs a variety of procedures to recapture a youthful appearance and achieve greater harmony among facial features. In Detroit, face lift and rhinoplasty are very popular procedures that Dr. Vasileff excels at, given the artistry needed to achieve a beautiful result. In addition, many men and women in Detroit choose blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to rejuvenate their upper and lower eyelids for a refreshed, energized appearance. Dr. Vasileff also performs brow lift, otoplasty (ear surgery) and chin/cheek surgery.
  • Breast Enhancement: These procedures can help women achieve the body contour they’ve always desired. In Detroit, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction and breast reconstruction are all ways to achieve a “you, only better” result.
  • Body Sculpting: Tummy tuck, liposuction and body lift procedures smooth trouble spots that don’t respond to diet and exercise and eliminate loose, sagging skin that remains after weight loss or pregnancy. Men and women from across Michigan who choose body sculpting from Dr. Vasileff have been delighted with their new, shapelier figures.
  • Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation: Dr. Vasileff is the first doctor in Southeast Michigan to offer Ultherapy, the new FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure for facial skin tightening.
