"Prior to choosing a facility, I researched multiple offices in Midland and Bay City. Yonick Plastic Surgery was the only facility that had a board certified plastic surgeon who owned and operated the business, all while performing many of the procedures himself. Initially I met with Dr. Yonick and his certified nurse practitioner and they both put my mind at ease. I was unsure of where to begin with my journey towards youthful skin, and they were able to provide me with multiple options, but ultimately helped me decide on the best plan based on my budget and expectations. While Dr. Yonick was extremely knowledgeable, Karen Yonick, APRN was the star of the show. Karen was flexible with my schedule, highly intelligent, and very personable. She performed all of the procedures herself and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Karen was very meticulous and took her time with me. I never felt rushed or felt like i was a burden. After my procedures Karen provided me with an inexpensive skin care regimen that takes less than than three minutes to complete. I would only trust my skin with knowledgeable, educated, experts and I found all of that and more at Yonick Plastic Surgery."- S.F. / Google / Nov 11, 2018
"For the middle aged woman that wants to reverse time, doesn’t want to look “fake,” and expects professionalism, finding Yonick Plastic Surgery was like finding a diamond in a sea of rocks. Dr. Yonick and his wife, Karen treated me with professionalism and guidance while always considering cost and long term skin goals. We all want to turn back time without losing the uniqueness of our face. Their lasers and skin care treatment line are helping me achieve that look of mature youth. Often, you will have to travel to a large city to find individuals with their education, credentials, and skills. We are so lucky to have Dr. Yonick and Karen in central Michigan. They are the dynamic duo. My skin looks and feels better than it has in years."- T.J. / Google / Nov 11, 2018

Liposuction is a good procedure for those who are at a healthy weight, but have pesky areas of fat that have been hard to lose with exercise and diet. Women and men contemplating liposuction should have skin that is taut because liposuction does not address loose or sagging skin. It is also important to realize that liposuction is not an answer for losing weight. Women having liposuction should be past pregnancies as this could compromise the results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Yonick will convey realistic expectations.
Surgical liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. A very small incision is made in the skin and a cannula will be placed in the incision. The cannula is a tube that helps loosen the fat as it is being removed. Once the chosen amounts of fat have been suctioned out, Dr. David Yonick will close the incision. Depending on the number of areas receiving treatment, your surgery could last 1 – 3 hours. In the dedicated recovery area, your post-op team will help manage any pain and care for your incision until your discharge.
What to Expect
You may need to recover at home from lipo for 1 – 3 weeks depending on the number of areas treated and the size of the treatment area. It is normal to see swelling and bruising for 1 – 2 weeks, and you may have the sutures removed on day 7 to day 10. What is most important after having lipo surgery is to allow your body time to recover and rest. When you are ready to return to work after your procedure, you need to remember to go slow. To build up your strength, stick to short walks and light workouts as advised by Dr. Yonick. Bear in mind you may have some changes after six weeks, but it takes 6 – 10 months before your new body shape and contour is attained.
