&uot;I didn’t like the professional atmosphere in Michigan,&uot; Schloemer said. &uot;I really liked the south; I saw a lot of potential for growth here and I saw a need for this in the community.&uot;

Opening Light Yeas Away gave Schloemer a chance to return to his first interest- Cosmetic surgery.

&uot;I started in cosmetic surgery and Vietnam got me into Vascular Surgery,&uot; he said. &uot;This was a chance for me to get back to what I really enjoyed.&uot;

Schloemer’s specialties are breast procedure and liposuction.

Breast implants are $2500 and liposuction ranges from $1750 to $2250.

Schloemer said patients could walk out of the recovery room following the procedure and be back at work in 2-3 days. &uot;If we operate on a Friday you can be back at work on a Monday,&uot; Schloemer said.

There are risks involved with each procedure, but Schloemer works with each patient to determine what is the best choice.

&uot;Something like Liposuction is not the right choice for everyone,&uot; he said. &uot;It’s not an excuse for dieting and exercise, but it can be a good start for some people.&uot;

Schloemer said that following liposuction many patients become to at and live healthier in order to protect their investment.

Schloemer also performs tattoo removal and a number of skin procedures and Light Years Away also performs massage and skin therapy procedures.
