A large, aquiline, deviated nose with a pronounced, thick-tipped hump is a subsidiary of being surgically operated to give it a more harmonious shape and aesthetics. This intervention is called rhinoplasty and consists of the remodeling of a person’s nose to give it a more anatomical appearance and according to its physiognomy. There are multiple techniques of rhinoplasty, although it tends to be included in two types of procedures:
Open Rhinoplasty: An incision is required in the nasal columella to more easily approach the different structures of the nose.
Closed Rhinoplasty: The incision is made in the nasal vestibule without the need to make a visible incision in the columella.
According to the type of patient, the plastic surgeon decides one or another technique for the best resolution of the nasal alteration. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is practiced mainly in young people, although the age range is very wide. It is in the first decades of life in which the nasal appendix is one of the objectives of the gaze and central point of human relations. When a person decides to operate on the nose, he must know all the details of the intervention, the advantages and possible complications, the plastic surgeon, the clinic where they will intervene and the postoperative care.
It consists of a functional or cosmetic surgical procedure with the purpose of remodeling the upper or lower eyelid eliminating and / or repositioning excess tissue as well as strengthening the surrounding muscles and tendons. When there is a significant amount of skin on the eyelid, the skin can hang over the eyelashes and cause loss of peripheral vision. The outer and upper parts of the visual field are most commonly affected and the condition can cause difficulty with activities such as driving or reading. Patients with a less severe amount of excess skin can perform a similar procedure for cosmetic reasons, to improve lower eyelid pockets and reduce wrinkling of the skin.
Blepharoplasty is performed by external incisions made along the natural lines of the eyelids, such as the upper and lower lashes of the eyelashes, or by the inner surface of the lower eyelid. It is an outpatient surgery because it is not necessary for the patient to remain hospitalized and recovery is rapid.
As people age, the effect of gravity, sun exposure and daily stress on the face certain signs of aging, aggravated by tobacco and alcohol habits. The folds between the mouth and nose are accentuated, the mandibular edge loses definition and the neck increases its flaccidity.
The facelifts should be individualized for each patient. At the consultation your surgeon will analyze your face, skin type and bone structure and discuss the possibilities that the surgery offers. The interventions consist basically of “tightening” the muscular layers and the skin, removing the surplus tissue. Each case may vary in terms of placement and extension of incisions, areas of the face to be improved, use of complementary techniques (blepharoplasty, profiling, etc.) and the duration of the procedure.
After surgery, the postoperative period is usually not painful. The discomforts that usually appear are usually controlled well with usual analgesics. The bandage and drainage tubes are usually removed in 24 to 48 hours.
Consists of obtaining fat through liposuction, processing it and then injecting it on the face to give volume and achieve a facial rejuvenation
The breast implant is a prosthesis used in cosmetic surgery to increase the size of the breasts or perform a reconstruction of breasts. There are two types of implants depending on the filling material, with many different shapes and textures:
Mainly implants are usually in two forms:
Round: vertically placed have the same width at the top as at the bottom.
Anatomical: shaped like a drop, ie wider at the base.
Women with large, drooping breasts can relieve problems such as back pain and deformities, neck pain, irritated skin, and other symptoms. The procedure consists of reducing the size of the breast, but at the same time sculpting the bust to give it the best shape possible.
We recommend to spend one night in our surgical center. We usually perform these procedures under general anesthesia. It is normal to feel some pain and swelling the first few days, symptoms easily controlled with painkillers.
In many patients the problem is sagging of the mammary skin accompanied with the fall of the whole bust, affecting the form of the breast (ptosis mammary). The procedure serves to elevate and improve the appearance of the breasts without resecting breast tissue.
It is indicated in women not expressly aged but in which their breasts have lost the proper consistency of youth, due to “sequelae” of pregnancies, lactations, considerable thinning, by involution of the breast itself, loss of skin elasticity, etc.
The operation is always performed in a hospital environment, usually with general anesthesia and a 24-hour admission. In some minor cases the correction can be performed with local anesthesia supported by sedation provided by the anesthesiologist and ambulatory.
Surgical intervention consisting of total remodeling of the abdomen, waist and trunk shape of the body. The main candidates for this surgery are women who have had one or more pregnancies.
The intervention is carried out under general or regional anesthesia and consists of five main steps:
Dermolipectomy, which involves removing all excess skin and fat from the abdomen, the so-called abdominal apron.
The abdominal wall is reconstructed by using sutures to join the rectus abdominis muscles.
Cutaneous closure: suture of the skin flap that was formed.
Replacement of the navel (neoumbilicoplasty).
Finally, and if necessary, the liposuction of the flanks and hips, with which the body contour is retraced.
Technique used to remove unwanted fat deposits from the superficial areas of the body, including the chin, neck and cheeks; Upper arms and upper breasts; Abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs and knees. Liposuction is not used as a substitute for weight reduction, but as a method to extract localized fat that is not easily removed by other means.
If the procedure is not very extensive you can do the liposuction with local anesthesia, which numbs the area, combined with sedatives that will make you feel a little relaxed. You will be awake but relaxed and will feel minimal discomfort. If you are planning to suction in a large area or treat multiple locations, you may need general anesthesia. Normally you will need a day of hospitalization.
It is known as scaleless surgery since there is no plastic surgery, but it molds the body at the same time that it eliminates the volumes of fat that disfigure it. It is indicated for young people, who having an apparently normal weight, do not manage to eliminate small accumulations of fat, neither with physical exercise nor with severe and sacrificed alimentary diets; But also in older or overweight people.
Liposculpture allows the fat to be extracted from the body while specifically molding the area being treated, being considered a craftsmanship, sophisticated and much less traumatic.
There are two very successful surgical alternatives: cohesive silicone gel implants and the injection of fat removed by liposuction from other parts of the body for people who wish to increase the volume of their glutes. Silicone implants are similar to breast implants, although more resistant and with a special format suitable to aesthetically increase the gluteal region in a permanent and reversible way.
Using a thinner cannula than the one used in a conventional liposculpture, the surgeon extracts fat from other areas of the body such as the lower back, abdomen, waist, knees and hips. It then submits this fat to a purification process and injects it into the buttocks, drop by drop, keeping in mind that there are blood vessels in the area that ensure good irrigation of the transferred fat that must survive as a graft.
By means of silicone gel implants
Your surgeon makes a small incision between 6 and 7 cm in the midline between both buttocks, within the depression that separates them. Through this incision forms a pocket inside each buttock, to accommodate the implants of cohesive silicone gel.
Anesthesia may be local with sedation, spinal, epidural or general. The surgery takes approximately 2 to 3 hours, both for the increase with implants and for the transfer of fat. Usually needs a day of hospitalization.
Baldness Surgery: Hair Micrografts
Alopecia or lack of hair has many different causes that, when treated medically or when its irreversibility has been proven, can be resolved by surgical methods. Depending on its extension and characteristics, various techniques can be applied such as the scalp flaps or, recently, the expanders.
Cylindrical grafts: They have a diameter between 3 and 4.5 mm.
Micrografts: The minigrafts present 3 or 4 hairs per graft and in the micrografts, 2.
Fusiform grafts: usually grafted into the anterior frontal line with an incision without drying any skin.
Long-haired autografts are hair grafts of different shapes and sizes, which are transplanted without shaving.
Lower pedicle flaps: These are usually transverse flaps.
Upper and pre-auricular flaps: The upper pedicle is located in the temporo-parietal region.
This new technique, applied in cases of medial alopecia and partial burns, consists of distending the areas with hair by means of tissue expanders and then repositioning the scalp in a way that removes the area without hair.
Plastic ear surgery performed to correct prominent head wards or to correct the size of the ears. Ear deformity is a matter of genetic inheritance and has no known cause. Although the majority of interventions are carried out in children between the ages of 6 and 14, in order to avoid psychological harassment by peers, it is also common in adults obtaining the same aesthetic results.
Otoplasty is performed clinically, in an outpatient mode if it is under local anesthesia and requires intravenous sedation or general anesthesia by medical criterion, it must remain one day admitted.
The most commonly used surgical technique is through an incision behind the ear to expose the cartilage that will remodel and thin as needed. It is usually placed a few points in the cartilage to achieve the desired folding and thus the ear takes on a new shape.
Profiles: chin prosthesis and malar
If there is a word that defines the perfiloplastia is a: harmony. With this operation of aesthetic surgery, we try to achieve a profile according to a whole. The problem is not focused, but a global solution is sought.
The forehead, nose, cheekbones and chin are the key points that make up our profile. That is why they are the ones that are given more attention, but not only surgeons focus on these points, but in the profile there are many other things to consider: jaw edges, prominence of the cheekbones, distance between Eyebrows, etc.
Also, you also have to look a bit into the future and think about the results in case you need to touch something else. For example, it may be that when tweaking your profile, it is necessary to fill the lips with some substance to obtain a more harmonic silhouette, or touch up with Botox to soften some wrinkles that may affect you a little.
