5 out of 5 stars Male Tummy Tuck

Men Need Tummy Tucks Too and I Love Mine! - Beachwood, OH

I could not recommend a better dr. than Dr. Michelow! Absolutely an amazing person and professional. He has a great beside manner and listens to your concerns. From the start to the finish, he and his staff took care of me spending as much time as I needed for each visit. His pain management skills are excellent and exceeded my expectations. Additionally, I appreciated his understanding of what I needed and was looking for as a man. My perception is other surgeons focus on the female body; where as Dr. Michelow was able to specialize on the male body. I recommend Dr. Michelow and his staff for your procedure!!!

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

The Best Investment Ever! - Beachwood, OH

Dr. Michelow is knowledgeable, understanding, and professional. I cannot be more pleased with my choice in plastic surgeons, and highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their self-confidence!

5 out of 5 stars Restylane Lyft

Mid 40s, Always Tired and Too Tired Looking! - Beachwood, OH

Absolutely love Dr Michelow...he was recommended to me by someone I trusted so that helped me make my decision. He has a kind & patient way about him. He is methodical & takes the time to explain everything in detail. There is a science behind all that he does...and I really feel that I am in good hands. He describes himself as "conservative" which is not only good, but also comforting that his recommendations are for your good, not just to sell products (or the next new fix!)

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Finally Got my Tummy Tuck - Beachwood, OH

I have been a patient of Dr. Michelow a few years now, starting with skin cancer removal. After that experience and knowing I would eventually have a tummy tuck, it was an easy decision for me. He and his staff are very understand of my needs and concerns. The overall demeanor in the office is non pretentious or pushy. Dr. Michelow is there to advise and execute your needs to his medical expertise. I was comfortable with his office staff as well as the surgery center and would do it again.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

"Twins in Mid 40s, Back to Pre-pregnancy Weight but Abs Never Came Back, Much Needed Tummy Tuck" - Beachwood, OH

Dr. Michelow is a highly skilled surgeon who is gentle in both manner and speech. He was very attentive to me and realistically honest about expected results. His plan is created 'With' you as an individual, not 'At' you and is within reason to your body type and problem areas. He will not compromise blood flow to the tissues for some extreme and unrealistic 'look' but rather seems to prefer helping his patients achieve a realistic, individualistic and natural look in a safe way. I was very glad I found him and would highly recommend him.
