    CHEST INCREASE

    Breast augmentation is the surgical procedure by which we increase and reaffirm the woman's breast. It is a simple surgery, which consists of making a small incision through which the breast prosthesis will be inserted. To insert and position it, a very small incision is made so that the posterior scar, in the vast majority of cases, is almost invisible. Through this opening, the surgeon creates a cavity where the prosthesis will be lodged, directly below the breast tissue or under the pectoral muscle. This type of surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, and in some cases with local anesthesia with sedation, according to medical criteria. The intervention for breast augmentation lasts from 1 to 2 hours and the result is immediately visible.

    Breast augmentation is the ideal solution for people who have an unsatisfactory breast volume or to restore the natural volume of the breasts, lost after pregnancy, weight changes or age. There are also people who undergo this operation to correct the difference in size of the two breasts or as reconstructive surgery as a result of a breast cancer or other disease that may affect the size or shape of the breasts. The fundamental thing is that we have a very studied and safe technique to achieve this goal.

    The results of breast augmentation are extremely satisfactory and immediate, since breast implants provide breasts with a more aesthetic size and appearance, and a completely natural touch.

    The dressings are removed in a few days, which must be replaced by a special bra. In 24-48 hours the patient can return to almost normal life and the stitches are removed from the first week. You may experience discomfort for a couple of weeks, but are adequately controlled with the medication prescribed by the plastic surgeon.

    CHEST LIFT

    Breast lift or mastopexy is a technique that offers response to those women who, due to the passage of time or as a result of pregnancy or breastfeeding, have seen their breasts lose their shape and firmness. With this simple surgery, the patient will improve the smoothness and aesthetics of their breasts, maintaining a natural appearance.

    The intervention to achieve breast lift is carried out in the operating room, generally under general anesthesia (depending on the characteristics of the patient), and has an estimated duration of between an hour and a half and 3 hours and a half. According to medical criteria, a hospital admission is usually necessary, and the doctor is discharged the following day.

    The mammary elevation is especially indicated for those women who have gone through a pregnancy or a period of lactation that has caused visible consequences such as fallen chest or sagging. To access this surgical intervention, the patient must have a good state of health, and with realistic perspectives on the possible results of the mastopexy. Breast lift surgery will not affect the future breastfeeding in any case, so it is a suitable process for women who have planned their motherhood.

    CHEST REDUCTION

    The mammary elevation is especially indicated for those women who have gone through a pregnancy or a period of lactation that has caused visible consequences such as fallen chest or sagging. To access this surgical intervention, the patient must have a good state of health, and with realistic perspectives on the possible results of the mastopexy. Breast lift surgery will not affect the future breastfeeding in any case, so it is a suitable process for women who have planned their motherhood.

    The results of breast reduction are immediate because after the operation, the patient stops feeling back and neck pain by decreasing the excessive volume of the breast, discharging the weight of the spine and shoulders. The physical and also aesthetic benefits are observed after the intervention. The patient will wear a compression bandage during the first week, to replace it with a special bra. The stitches are removed from the first week and the possible discomfort is controlled with the medication prescribed by the surgeon.

    Normally, in one or two weeks you can lead a normal life avoiding physical exertions. Although the appearance of bruising and some swelling in the postoperative period is quite normal, usually after one month the recovery is usually complete.

    LIPOSUCTION

    Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery technique that is used to eliminate localized fat accumulations through a medical aspiration system. The operation consists of using a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula, which is connected to a powerful suction pump that will absorb the fat through small incisions that the expert surgeon will perform on the skin.

    To introduce them, only minimal incisions are required, so that possible scars will be practically imperceptible. Generally, liposuction is performed with local anesthesia and sedation, although it may vary depending on the characteristics of each patient and the area to be treated.

    This operation usually lasts approximately one to two hours. Once the operation is done, a compressive garment is placed that will help the skin adjust to its new body contour, which should be worn for about four weeks. It is normal that bruises and inflammation appear in the intervened area that will gradually disappear. Lymphatic drainage massages will help you to complete recovery after liposuction.

    It is important to know that liposuction is not a treatment of obesity, but is only intended to correct those specific body regions that have localized fat clusters. With this technique, fat can be extracted from different parts of the body. In women it is more frequent to intervene areas such as hips and thighs, while men are the abdomen, flanks and jowls the most treated areas.

    Liposuction is not advisable for people with a weakened immune system, diabetes, heart or artery problems.

    The goal of liposuction is to eliminate excess fat deposits, improve body contour and proportion and, ultimately, improve your own image. As with all cosmetic surgeries, the success of a liposuction will depend on a series of individual factors, such as age, skin elasticity, weight and overall patient health.

    BLEPHAROPLASTY or EYELID SURGERY

    Recover your look by correcting excess skin and eyelid bags.

    Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a surgical technique that solves possible defects in the eyelids, such as the appearance of fat pockets or excess skin. It is a cosmetic surgery that improves the appearance of the eyelids, since it removes the excess of skin and, at the same time, the deposits of fat inside the upper part of the eyelids and in the lower ones. The blepharoplasty begins by making incisions in the skin of the eyelids to release and remove excess skin and tighten the orbicular muscle.

    Next, the fat is extracted in the appropriate amount to eliminate the palpebral bags. And finally, the incisions are closed with very fine sutures. It usually heals without problems, and usually they are practically invisible at three months, since the eyelids are considered as the area of the body with better healing. After the blepharoplasty an ophthalmic ointment and some dressings with very cold physiological saline are applied in order to reduce discomfort and inflammation. But it is not necessary to cover the eyes preventing vision.

    It is normal that swelling of the eyelids persists during the first week after blepharoplasty. Most patients can be incorporated into their normal life in about 10-12 days.

    During the first weeks you may notice excessive tearing, hypersensitivity to light and temporary changes in visual acuity, which will remit in a short time.

    RHINOPLASTY

    Rhinoplasty or surgery of the nose, is a plastic surgical procedure, whose function is to modify the appearance and functionality of the nasal appendix. It is usually carried out to change the nasal septum and improve the passage of air, or to modify the bones and improve facial aesthetics. In many cases both processes are carried out at the same time.

    Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and, in selected cases, local anesthesia and sedation. Aesthetic rhinoplasty is carried out through internal incisions, so there is no visible external scar.

    After rhinoplasty, the patient should have a tamponade between one and three days, and a small plaster that will be removed a week, presenting the nose with some swelling that will disappear in a few weeks. However, the final result of rhinoplasty will be reached one year after the intervention.

    It is essential to avoid sun exposure and violent exercises during the first three months. The surgeon will be the one who, through the periodic controls, will indicate the care to follow to achieve a rapid and optimal recovery. With this intervention it is possible to change the shape of the back or tip of the nose, reduce or increase its size, change the angle between the nose and the upper lip or sharpen the opening of the nostrils.

    Since the laser acts on the melanin, the technique works perfectly for light skin with dark hair, but people with dark skin and light hair can get worse results, however, it has been possible to calibrate the wavelength of the beam used to laser hair removal (Laser Alejandrita and Laser Diode), to reduce this problem.
