Dr. Lakin's expertise and skill are truly unparalleled. Throughout the entire process, he demonstrated a deep understanding of my needs, providing me with personalized care and attention. His attention to detail and commitment to perfection were evident during our initial consultation, where he attentively listened to my concerns and meticulously explained various treatment options available to me. He approached my procedure as a form of art, carefully considering every aspect of my unique features to ensure a natural and harmonious result. His steady hand and precision left me with astounding results that exceeded my highest expectations. The cutting-edge equipment and advanced techniques utilized by his team were indicative of their commitment to staying at the forefront of the industry. Post-surgery, Dr. Lakin and his team provided comprehensive aftercare, closely monitoring my progress and ensuring a swift and successful recovery. The follow-up consultations were an opportunity for me to discuss any concerns and receive valuable guidance on maintaining and optimizing the results achieved. The clinic's warm and inviting atmosphere contributed to a calming and peaceful environment. I cannot recommend Dr. Lakin enough for anyone seeking top-notch plastic surgery services. His exceptional skills, artistic eye, and compassionate approach make him a true gem in his field. If you are searching for a plastic surgeon who strives for perfection while prioritizing your individual needs, Dr. Lakin is the ideal choice.

Dr. Lakin is a magician!! I had a breast reduction procedure about a month ago. My results were amazing!! The entire staff at illuum cosmetic surgery is so amazing. Very friendly, and comforting. This was my first surgery ever. I went in very nervous but they answered all my questions and eased my nerves immediately. I’m so happy I chose Dr. Lakin. If your thinking about getting anything done. Do it! You will not regret it!

Having just returned from my 3 month post op appointment, I'm absolutely thrilled with my results! Dr. Lakin has completely redesigned and fixed the two areas of me that I have tried to hide for 40 years! I really couldn't be happier with my decision to go to Illuum Cosmetic Surgery! I booked a consultation based on the gallery on the website looking at similar physiques and the end result. At my consultation, I knew immediately I was where I should be. After my surgery, the attention from Dr. Lakin and Nurses Katie, Jen & Emily has been 5 star all the way. Finally, I've also had a fantastic experience with Katie in the MedSpa! Thank you Illuum for everything you have done for me!

I wasn't sure about cosmetic surgery when I scheduled my consultation. I am a consistent exerciser, I eat right, and I'm active - even on vacation. I felt great and I wanted to look great too. After meeting Dr. Lakin and his staff, my outlook on cosmetic surgery changed. -It's just another tool in the tool box. My liposuction surgery went smoothly, recovery was as expected, and I am seeing terrific results just 3 months later. I am confident that in 3 more months, I'll be even happier I made the decision to use this tool.As a professional woman, I know aging in the workplace is a easier on men than women. Katie helps me stay ahead of the aging game without looking like I "had work done." I tried Botox for the first time and was thrilled with the results. Since then, I decided to take a chance on Morpheus 8 -- no turkey neck for this 56 year old!Illuum Cosmetic Surgery is a state-of-the-art operation with a friendly, supportive, and encouraging team of professionals with a singular goal - helping you look and feel better about yourself. Dr. Lakin and his staff helped restore my confidence by making me see the beauty that existed within me before we even discussed how we could amplify that beauty through any cosmetic procedure.

I can not say enough wonderful things about Dr.Lankin and his staff and beautiful surgical center. I have been looking for years for the right surgeon that not only was incredibly talented but also had a wonderful bed side manner and truly listened to what I was asking for. We Michiganders are lucky that he came to Michigan and opened up the most beautiful state of the art facility. The staff is beyond helpful and always a joy to work with. I will continue to refer my family and friends to Dr. Lankin!

Dr Lakin is a true artist. I have had 3 children and gained and lost 100lbs and that left me with a lot of extra skin. I decided it was time to do something about it. I had two separate consults with two doctors and Dr. Lakins knowledge and experience was what made me choose him. On the day of surgery he literally drew on me like an artist would sketch out a drawing…and I believe his work has transformed the way I feel about my body.

I had a fantastic experience at this medical spa! The staff was friendly and welcoming, and Nurse Katie was simply the best. She was knowledgeable and professional, and put me at ease throughout my treatment. The sales consultant, Kitri, was also incredibly helpful in recommending the perfect treatment plan for my needs. Overall, the entire team went above and beyond to make my experience enjoyable and effective. I highly recommend this medical spa and can't wait to return for my next visit!

Katie the injector was absolutely FANTASTIC! I was nervous to get lip and cheek filler because I wanted to just add a small amount of plump to my lips and a natural contour to my face.She listened to all of my concerns and took her time with me to know exactly what I wanted. My confidence with wearing no makeup has now skyrocketed 🥹 I also had a breast implant to hold on to while I got my injections which was hilarious and comforting:)If you want someone with compassion, care, and a thoughtful consultation, I highly recommend Illuum!I have included some of my before and after photos of the healing process here 🙂

A Master Artist in the World of Plastic Surgery: Dr. Lakin's Touch of Genius I recently underwent a transformative journey with plastic surgeon extraordinaire, Dr. Lakin, and I cannot express my immense gratitude and satisfaction enough. Dr. Lakin's skill and artistry are nothing short of awe-inspiring, and I genuinely believe he is the Michelangelo of the plastic surgery world. Having had multiple procedures performed by Dr. Lakin, including a breast reduction and lift, liposuction of the inner thighs, bra roll, neck, chin, flanks, and a tummy tuck with abdominal muscle repair, I can confidently say that he has surpassed my expectations in every aspect. His talent lies not only in his precision and expertise but also in his ability to bring out the natural beauty in each patient. Like a true artist, Dr. Lakin carefully sculpted and reshaped my body, leaving me with results that felt like a personalized masterpiece. Beyond his exceptional surgical skills, what truly sets Dr. Lakin apart is his kindness and attentiveness. Throughout the entire process, he took the time to listen to my concerns, thoroughly explain the procedures, and understand my desired outcomes. Dr. Lakin's warm and empathetic approach made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to undergo surgery. Dr. Lakin's attention to detail is unparalleled. It was evident that he approached each procedure with meticulous care, ensuring that every incision and stitch was placed with precision and purpose. This level of dedication and commitment to perfection is what makes him stand out as a true master of his craft. I must also mention the incredible staff at Dr. Lakin's clinic. They truly are a personal hype squad for their patients. From the moment I walked in, I was greeted with warmth and made to feel like a valued individual. Their support and encouragement throughout the entire process were instrumental in making my journey a positive one. The surgery performed by Dr. Lakin has been truly life-changing for me. Not only has it enhanced my physical appearance, but it has also brought back my lost confidence. For years, I struggled with body image issues and self-doubt, but Dr. Lakin's artistic touch and the remarkable results have given me a newfound sense of empowerment and self-assurance. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Lakin to anyone seeking plastic surgery. His talent rivals that of the great Michelangelo, and his kindness and attention to detail make him a standout in the field. The life-changing effects of his work are undeniable, and I am forever grateful to Dr. Lakin and his wonderful staff for the incredible journey they have guided me through.
Illuminate cosmetic surgery centre "I recently had a tummy tuck with liposuction after having three children, I couldn't be happier with the results. The procedure has transformed my body and given me a newfound confidence that I didn't know was possible. What made my experience truly exceptional was the staff and Dr. Gregory Lakin and his lovely wife, who were all incredibly kind, caring, and supportive throughout the entire process. They made me feel comfortable and at ease from the moment I walked into their office, they were there for me every step of the way, answering my questions and providing me with the guidance and support I needed to make informed decisions about my surgery. I'm so grateful to them for their expertise and compassion. I would highly recommend Illuminate cosmetic surgery centre! Last but in no way near least Dr. Gregory Lakin. I am grateful for your experience and your skills that you have perfected over the years. My belly button is amazing. Truly I cannot thank you enough!! You are truly an artist in your craft !!

Staff is the best!! All of them, care is amazing, always made me feel comfortable. Love dr Lakin and his crew! I had been to 3 consults prior to coming here, I knew my search was over the moment I spoke to him, I was very afraid to take this leap and so far my experience has been amazing! Thank you for not misleading me and making this the best decision I’ve made for myself!

Dr. Lakin is a very skilled plastic surgeon who is meticulous with his patients he’s kind and listens to what you want to accomplish. He’s about doing everything safely and that’s the main priority. I am very pleased with my outcome just one-week post-op. I am impressed with the care I received from he and his entire staff, everyone I worked with from day one in the process including Jenn, Emily, Brianna, Kasey, and the surgical staff were very always very supportive and addressed all questions. Dr. Lakin is a perfectionist, he will be realistic yet also aim to exceed your expectations, which he did! Thanks!!

Thee best in the business! From the very start Dr. Lakin was professional, confident that he could get me the results I was trying to achieve, and he had an overall caring spirit. During the procedure, he was very attentive and constantly checked to see if I was doing well. He was on time and ended at the exact time he said he would. He knows what he’s doing. Post-op he checked up on me to see how I was progressing, how I felt, and if I had any concerns. I thought his follow up one month later was icing on the cake of a very well done procedure. I’m definitely considering him for another procedure because his personality, his professionalism, and his direct care, is exactly what I needed considering I was nervous at first. He gave me the confidence he was a pro and his work is a testimony that he is a pro!

Dr. Lakin was simply amazing! Being overweight most of my lift coming into the decision to make some body changes after losing 75lbs I’m blessed to have been able to a work of his art! Extremely detailed in my procedures to make sure I was getting the best results! One other thing that was incredible to me was his ability to praise another surgeons work. I had a procedure prior to him and he praised the work of the previous doc. Most don’t, they want all the praise so you just use them! Dr.Lakin thank you so much for giving me confidence back in my body! April

Dr Lakin is absolutely amazing. He gave me realistic expectations and made me feel comfortable with my procedure. He was sensitive to my needs. I was so comfortable that I actually fell asleep during the procedure. He has personally followed up with me and made himself easily accessible. I love my results!!! If your looking into this procedure he's your guy!
