Why facial aging?

There is no doubt that the perspectives of lengthening life causes a deep concern in all areas of society, research, orthopedics, pharmacies, also affects plastic surgery. We have always dedicated ourselves to aging, but now with more impetus, since we need techniques that are more effective and lasting.


What are the most effective techniques?

Today we can no longer rely solely on techniques based on synthetic materials. They are of dubious efficacy, since they have a great cost and a long lasting effect in quite short time. Today we have to take advantage of what we have trained ourselves, which is in the repair and aesthetic plastic surgery, which we have formed through the MIR. And that is the use of the patient's own tissues such as the tissue grafts of the patient, autologous, such as the dermis and fat. It is what we are currently using, in a way with local anesthesia and with really satisfactory results.


What are the associated techniques?

Today we take aging, the aesthetic treatment, from a multidisciplinary point of view, disciplines of what we have said before, tissue grafts from the patient or from the patient himself, such as fat and dermis, but then we go to support in other techniques, such as the well-known Botox that has a very interesting effect, such as the use of micropigmentation and any other technique that can occur to us, such as minimally invasive surgeries, such as minilifting, such as lifting lip, as is the lifting of the corner of the mouth, all around the mouth and the eyelids.


How economically is it translated?

An interesting point logically is the economy, how much is the cost of these techniques that seem more invasive. It is more economical, because initially it means a slightly higher outlay, it must be borne in mind that these grafts are the patient's own, so that they will last over time, and they will remain forever, so they will need less long-term interventions, which logically means that spending will be lower.
