What doesn’t the facelift operation do?
As reconstructive operation the facelift doesn’t change the fundamental features of the face and it doesn’t stop the aging process. The facelift is a strictly surgical procedure; the non-surgical rejuvenating treatments will not have the same results, but they can delay the moment when the facelift becomes necessary and they can complete the surgical results.
What can the neck lift operation treat?
The neck lift operation can improve the fat excess and skin relaxation from the inferior level of the face (the felt ‘jaws’), the excess of fat tissue from under the chin (goiter), the droopy skin from the neck level and the deep wrinkles on the neck (wrinkled stripes).
What can the rhinoplasty surgery ameliorate/improve/treat?
The size of the nose keeping the facial proportions, the nose width and the nostrils width, the nose profile, either if it’s about depressions either if it’s about protuberances, the nose tip is bulbous, enlarged, felt, rotated, nostrils narrowing and straightening and nasal asymmetries. In what concerns the nose asymmetries we must not forget that each face is asymmetrical, in different grades and results cannot be completely symmetrical although our purpose is to create correct proportions and facial symmetries.
What does blepharoplasty treats?
The droopy and bag form skin which creates disturbing folds at the level of the superior eyelid and which, sometimes, can cumber the view, the fat deposits which appear like puffy eyelids, the bags from under the eyes, the skin excess and the fine wrinkles from the surface or the inferior eyelid.
What is laser/ultrasound guided liposuction?
Just as traditional liposuction, the guided liposuction is not a weight control method and it is NOT an obesity treatment method. Liposuction is an intervention that helps us give contour/shape to our body in those areas that don’t respond to diet and exercises like ‘the belly’ or ‘tummy’. Like traditional liposuction, laser guided liposuction can be used to reduce the dimensions and to ameliorate the ‘orange peel’ aspect from the abdomen, arms, chin, hips, thighs, calves etc.

Can men call for aesthetic surgery? Are they good candidates?
In a society where pleasant and harmonious looks prime, the accent being put on the young and toned aspect no matter the sex, men of all ages need aesthetic treatments and plastic surgery. Amongst the procedures that interest men we can enlist: rhinoplasty for a nose that’s good proportioned with the rest of the face, facial rejuvenations, a more supple waist and a more sculpted body with the help of liposuction and fat transfer.
