What is facial rejuvenation and what techniques can be used?

The concept of facial rejuvenation in recent years has changed. Today what is sought is to restore the volumes, shapes and contours that have been lost as the years have gone by but always trying to get results with the patient is comfortable and be recognized as it was before. We will use a series of more or less aggressive, more or less depending on the outcome invasive surgical techniques look. In many cases what we will mix them. For example we have from simple filled with materials like hyaluronic acid, the patient's own fat or placing some tensioning threads to more invasive techniques such as blepharoplasty, rejuvenation midface, cervical, etc ...


What results offer?

The results we get with this type of surgery combined invasion are more or less natural results, with which the patient recognize itself, it does not look strange neither she nor the people around you. Hence when you see the comments are "I feel good", "you're beautiful", "you've changed your hairstyle" ... but not "what surgery you have done?". This got these patients do not reject new treatments perform plastic surgery after a few months or years after they have spent the effects thereof.


What age is recommended this treatment done?

Today the youth is not considered just a stage of life but a state of mind and mental. Therefore all these elements have no place in any stage of life, provided that the patient has the need or think you can do well to improve your mood or mental, a type of these treatments. Obviously, the younger the patient, less aggressive will be necessary. A more aggressive older thereof.


Is it permanent or to do recordatorias sessions?

Life is an evolutionary process, therefore all these treatments can never be definitive. Obviously, depending on the type of treatment, you have longer or shorter, depending also on the aggressiveness of the same. It is a question that the patient it should be put before any kind of treatment to be aware of the results obtained with them.
