Doctor Category: Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (Not Cosmetic)
Andrew Lofman, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, has been practicing plastic surgery for more than 13 years. While his surgical repertoire includes nearly all aspects of aesthetic surgery, he’s known for his expertise in “Mommy Makeovers” and the various procedures that fall within that realm, including breast augmentation, breast lift and reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
“More than 80 percent of my practice involves cosmetic procedures and I really enjoy it,” he says. “I like making a difference in people’s lives.”
Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Lofman is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is a multiyear recipient of the “Top Plastic Surgeon” recognition from the Consumer Research Council of America.
As a well-respected plastic surgeon in Michigan, Dr. Lofman receives referrals for delicate reconstructive eyelid surgery from area ophthalmologists, and performs nearly 300 eyelid surgeries per year. He’s a leader in all aspects of facial rejuvenation.
In his 13 years in practice, Dr. Lofman has built genuine relationships with his patients, and sees his role as an educator as well as a surgeon. “My goal is to make sure that patients understand their options and that they’re well-informed about any procedure I perform,” Dr. Lofman explains. “I treat all of my patients like they’re family. I take time to listen to everyone, and develop a strategy specific for each individual patient. I’m not in it just to keep the machine going; I want people to be happy with the results, and I want them to have the procedures that are right for them.”
In addition to performing many surgical procedures, Dr. Lofman continues to expand his office to include nonsurgical procedures such as Botox and filler, as well as lasers for facial rejuvenation, scars, stretch marks, and pigmented areas. He will also have Emsculpt, a new sculpting device that aids in increasing musculature while reducing fat cells, to offer patients both beautiful and natural-looking results.
“I’m very excited about expanding the noninvasive side of the practice, but I’m also very busy with my surgical side,” says Dr. Lofman, who’s honored to be a featured physician in the Hour Detroit “Top Docs” issue. “It’s a very exciting time for me.”
