Procedures of Plastic Surgery
- Breast augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery is, with out a doubt, one of the most frequent cosmetic procedures done in these days. It’s the surgery of choice for women who consider their breast too small, have lost weight, have nursed their babies, or simply, because of normal aging their breast have lost volume, changed shape or dropped .
- Breast reduction
The breast reduction surgery gives great satisfaction to the patients. Women, with large and dropped breasts, can relieve their problems, such as: pain, and deformities on their back, neck pain, irritated skin, and other symptoms. In this case the surgery of choice is a reduction mammoplasty, in which the surgeon reduces the size of the breasts, but at the same time he sculptures the breast to give it the best possible shape.
- Reconstructive Breast Surgery
Liposuction is an excellent procedure to eliminate excess fat, which an individual can have in any part of the body. As time has gone by, this procedure has improved and now it is called liposculpture, because what the surgeon really does is look for the most pleasing body contour and he eliminates the excess fat in some areas, and he injects fat in other areas, for an example, in the gluteus.
The advantage it offers is that the fat used in the procedure is of the same person, which makes it safer, because there is no risk of rejection or encapsulment The obtained fat is prepared and then injected in the deep levels of the skin using special cannulae. With this we achieve, to restore or increase the volume of the injected areas. As time passes it is possible that 20 to 30% of the injected fat can be reabsorbed, but the other percentage stays in a permanent way.
Abdominalplasty is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate excess skin and fat tissue of the middle and lower abdomen, also a tightening of the abdominal muscles is done.
- Buttock implants
The buttock implants surgery is ideal for persons who wish to increase and improve the shape of this part of the body. The implants used are especially designed for this purpose. They can have a round or oval shape. The surgeon will decide which is more appropriate for each case.
- Calf implants
Rhinoplasty can improve your appearance and self-confidence, but, perhaps you will not reach your ideal appearance, and it can not make people treat you differently. “My advice to my patients is that they should think carefully about their expectations, and we talk them over”, the specialist tells us. The best candidates for rhinoplasty are the persons who wish to improve their appearance, not to make it perfect. If you are in good health, physically and mentally, if your expectations are realistic, then you could be a good candidate.
Blefaroplasty, is a facial rejuvenating procedure, which gives great satisfaction. As years go by the skin of the upper eyelids tend to drop and the fat bags of the lower eyelid become evident. This makes the patient look “tired” and it’s a sign of aging. With surgery the excess skin is eliminated and the fat is dried out and redistributed according to each case. What we achieve with this is to give a younger appearance and the eyes seem to have a fresher look.
- Eyebrow lift
Eyebrows play a very important part in rejuvenating the upper third of the face. Depending on each case there are different options to achieve the most adequate contour of the eyebrows, and attain a fresher and younger look.
- Chin implants
- Cheek reduction (Buccal fat pad extraction)
- Cheek implants (malar implants)
- Face and Neck lift
This procedure is among the group of surgeries of facial rejuvenation. With this surgery we can stop the time clock, and go back 10 to 15 years. Each case has its special considerations, but the technique is basically the same.
Otoplasty is a surgical procedure intended to correct the ears and its surroundings. Some of these problems could be: cupped ears, large or stretched earlobes, shell ears, and lop ears. The recommended age to do this surgery is in children over 6 years old, when the ears have reached an adequate size.
- Neck Liposuction
Perhaps, the double chin, is one of the areas that most affects a person. But it’s good to know that neck liposuction can be a solution to this problem.
This procedure is recommended to improve acne scars and for the treatment of facial lines, like those around the mouth. It is also useful for the treatment of scars.
Since Botox appeared it has revolutionized aesthetic medicine, because it gives a simple and effective solution to treat facial expression wrinkles. Botox derives from a toxin produced from a bacteria known as clostridium botulinum. What this toxin does is paralyze the muscles temporarily.
- Injectable fillers
A great range of filling material, for wrinkle treatment, and to give more volume, can be found in the market. Unfortunately, the great majority of these is not completely safe and could have complications in the long run, such as granuloms, bumps, and an artificial appearance.
- Hair transplants
Hair replacement techniques have come a long way since these treatments started, when it was common to see what looked like “doll heads”, trademark of a surgery of this type. Now in days, hair micro grafts are performed, and results are natural and permanent.
