You are a candidate for abdominoplasty if you have flaccidity in the skin, which frequently occurs after pregnancies which causes distension, loss of elasticity of the abdominal skin, appearance of stretch marks and diastasis of the rectus abdominals. In 99% of the cases the abdominoplasty is accompanied by liposculpture in order to reshape areas like the waist and back.
You are a candidate for augmentation mammoplasty if you want to increase your breast volume, providing greater projection and better appearance of the cleavage. Also when you do not have flaccidity in the mammary skin.
You are a candidate for breast pexy when your breasts have lost their initial position, or when you have abundant breast tissue that causes loss elasticity of the skin what is known as breast ptosis ( falling of the breasts). This usually occurs after considerable weight changes or after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
You are a candidate for reduction mammoplasty when your breast tissue is abundant and you present symptoms such as low back pain. Also if you have sagging breast skin and want to lift your breasts without implants.
You are a candidate for rhinoplasty if you want to correct deformities such as disproportionality between the external nasal structures like the dorsum, nasal tip and nasal wings. This surgery can also treat functional problems such as turbinate hypertrophy.
You are a candidate for a facelift if you are in the age range over 45 years and the skin of your face has lost tone and elasticity, the facelift seeks to rearrange the internal structures of support, such as muscles and ligaments also excess skin is removed in order to improve the external appearance of the skin. Normally the facelift is accompanied by blepharoplasty as it complements the overall facial rejuvenation.
The pre-surgical tests that are frequently requested are hemogram, glycemia, BUN, creatinine, pregnancy test, coagulation tests, breast ultrasound, HIV, COVID PCR test, uroanlysis and electrocardiogram in order to evaluate the patient’s previous condition and ensure that he/she is a candidate for surgery. Some of these are indicated for patients with special health conditions.
The anesthesia of choice for aesthetic surgeries is general anesthesia because it ensures total control of the patient’s airway and therefore gives us greater security for the patient.

The breast implants that we use the most are Mentor and Motiva because they have a long history in the market and studies that demonstrate their safety.
There are different planes in which breast implants can be placed, among those we have: – Retromuscular plane (behind the muscle). – Retroglandular plane (behind the mammary gland). – Dual plane (superior coverage of the implant with the pectoral muscle and inferior with the mammary gland). The choice between one or the other will be determined by the patient’s preference, the diameter of the patient’s areola and the amount of the patient’s own breast tissue.
Liposurg technology is performed through the use of a special cannula, which generates short and fast vibrations that destroy the fat cells so that they can be suctioned and eliminated from the body. With this technique we can eliminate more fat in a shorter period of time. This technology provides greater benefits than traditional liposuction cannulas because we achieve better results through a safer and faster recovery procedure.
VASER Lipo is a new liposuction technology, an advanced procedure that uses gentle ultrasonic energy to selectively break up some of the unwanted fat while preserving other important tissues. It is indicated for those patients who have a low degree of abdominal skin flaccidity or who have undergone previous abdominal surgeries and have some degree of fibrosis.
Retraction produces thermal energy which is controlled in real time thanks to the sensors located in its cannulas, eliminating fat deposits and ensuring optimal results in the treated areas. It is a technology that favors patients who have moderate flaccidity and do not wish to undergo abdominoplasty or mini abdominoplasty.
