Patients know her as “Dr. Ellen” and she’s been a trusted, board-certified plastic surgeon for 16 years. Dr. Ellen Janetzke uses her exemplary surgical skills for a full range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, in addition to face and skin treatments such as fillers and Botox. Known for her extreme efficiency in the operating room, Dr. Ellen is able reduce anesthesia time, increase safety, and decrease costs for her patients in the process.
Breast augmentation, breast reduction, and tummy tucks are her specialty, and she’s noticed an increase in the number of men seeking help. Her male patients favor nonsurgical injections to smooth out lines and creases. Many are interested in liposuction for their chest, abdomen, and waist. Dr. Ellen adds a note of caution about liposuction: “It’s not for weight loss; it’s for body-contouring,” she says.
Also on the rise is the number of people seeking tightening after extreme weight loss. Recommended body-contouring for these patients includes arm-lifts, lower-body lifts, tummy tucks, thigh-lifts, neck-lifts, and breast-lifts. Dr. Ellen even offers a procedure commonly referred to as “fat-transferring,” where fat is removed from one portion of the body and used to enhance another. The “Mommy Makeover,” a stomach- and breast-lift, is always a popular procedure, and a way for mothers to feel like themselves again.
Other people are interested in NeoGraft hair restoration, a technology that restores your natural hair patterns with extremely little downtime. In fact, no general anesthesia is required, and patients report very little discomfort with a NeoGraft scalp or eyebrow hair transplant.
“With all the wonderful options we have, why not make yourself look and feel better by taking advantage of what plastic surgery has to offer?” asks Dr. Ellen, who performs surgery in three safe, accredited locations: the Royal Oak and Troy hospitals of the Beaumont Health System, and the UnaSource Surgery Center in Troy.
