Rhinoplasty

Sometimes referred to as a “nose job” by patients, it seeks the correction of nose defects, since the nose highlights the facial beauty. From an aesthetic point of view, the nose is the cornerstone of facial harmony. Each and every nose must be designed according to the patient’s specific anatomy. It is important to assess the nose from a functional and aesthetic point of view in order to obtain better results. It is approached internally, with no visible scars in most cases. When it requires the correction of previous procedures, or in more complex cases, the approach is open surgery. This procedure is performed using general anesthesia and consists in sculpting and reshaping both the bones and cartilage that comprise the nose. In many cases, grafting from the same patient can be used. This is one of those procedures that requires a plastic surgeon with a vast experience, since I consider it one of the hardest to perform.

 

Rhytidectomy or Face Lift

This surgery consists in lifting and suspending the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and repositioning the facial soft tissue compensating for excess of skin. (Facial Rejuvenation)

  • Estimated length of procedure: From 2 to 4 hours.
  • Medical Leave: 1-week relative rest.
  • Type of anesthesia: General Anesthesia or Sedation.
  • Inpatient procedure. It requires overnight hospitalization.

Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery

Patients refer to it as “Eye Lift”. As years pass, the eyelids will lower, altering the eye function, and making the eyes look tired or droopy. This procedure removes the excess of skin on the upper eyelid and remove the fat pads that become visible due to genetic factors or the effects of time. It is an outpatient procedure that in most cases comprises local anesthesia. On the upper eyelid, the excess of skin is removed, the position of the eyelid and the drop of the lacrimal glands are corrected, and the fat pads are removed. On the lower eyelid, the fat pads are repositioned, muscles are adjusted, and, in some cases, skin is removed.

Brow Lift

This procedure, also called Forehead lift or Browplasty, can be performed endoscopically or via incision. They are designed to reduce wrinkles, improve frown lines and glabella (the space between the eyebrows) and lower or asymmetrical position of the eyebrows. (With well-placed eyebrows we can change the sings of facial aging.) The technique used in this procedure is minimally invasive endoscopic surgery in order to avoid visible scars. This procedure obtains a mild-to-moderate lift of the eyebrows, placing them in an alert and youthful position. It also corrects the muscles on the nasal bridge and the frown lines. The other technique is via incision. It is a wider approach on the scalp, and it is designed for patients with severe sagging brows and very deep frown lines.

Jowl liposuction

It removes the fat on the jawline that creates the jowl, right below the chin and it helps to improve the facial profile.
