Facelift or Rhytidectomy

Age and weight changes are factors that cause aging of the face and neck, causing sagging muscles, fat and skin; for this reason, facial surgery (which is done under local anesthesia and sedation), aims to obtain a harmonious and natural result, restoring tissues to its original state and youthful look without looking "operated or stretched."

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty

Genetics, hormonal changes and allergic disorders make blepharoplasty a surgery that is performed on patients of all ages. It is a simple surgery where resection of the skin and fat of the upper eyelid is performed through a small incision placed exactly in the crease of the eyelid to hide the scar. Stitches are removed after 4 or 5 days.

The lower eyelids are mostly done with the closed technique, removing excess fat without opening the skin, the wound done in the back of the eyelid, the intention being to leave no visible trace. By doing this, the expression of the face changes from a tired or sleepless look to a young and fresh one.

The no bruising surgery program of Dr. Sanmiguel allows the patient to recover quickly from the surgery, so you can start your daily activities as soon as possible.

 

Nose surgery or Rhinoplasty

Nasal cosmetic surgery is one of the most frequently performed interventions in our centers. The idea is to create a beautiful and proportionate nose in harmony with the rest of your face. You will have the opportunity to see the possible surgical change through a face scan modification.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, with an open or closed technique. No nasal packing or plaster is used, only a special patch for 15 days.

The surgery without bruising program allows for a rapid recovery with minimal discomfort and almost free of bruises.

 

Breast augmentation

For over 5,000 years the breast has been a symbol of sensuality, sexuality, fertility and motherhood in women. Breast augmentation is considered, after liposuction, the most common intervention in the world.

The surgery involves placing an implant to create a proportional and aesthetic figure, always taking into account the patient's own idea of size and shape. The implant can be placed in front, behind or within the muscle, the approach by the areola, armpit, navel or the fold.

The surgery is performed under epidural anesthesia and sedation; surgery time is less than three hours and requires, in most cases, a night of hospitalization in our clinic or hospital of choice. A special bra provided by us is used for three weeks.

 

Breast Reduction

The large volume in the breasts results in a series of problems that significantly affect the patient, this includes the appearance of being thick or overweight, but the more important ones are back or neck problems, numbness in arms and hands, excessive moisture under the bust, curvature of the spine, etc.

Breast reduction is performed under epidural anesthesia, requires overnight hospitalization and a week of rest. The decrease in volume depends on what you discuss with Dr. Sanmiguel, as the decrease can consist of one or more sizes (cups).

The change in your silhouette will be spectacular as it will cut a leaner figure and feel that you "took a huge load off" your back, feeling light and painless.

 

Tummy tuck or Lipectomy

Large changes in weight and pregnancies bring as a result a loss of body aesthetics in the areas of the abdomen, waist, hips and legs. Body rejuvenation is performed through the removal of excess skin, fat and stretch marks, through an incision in the pubic hair and adequate tightening of flabby muscles due to pregnancy.

The result will be a flat stomach and marked waistline as Dr. Sanmiguel will add to you corporal surgery a liposculpture of the waist, thighs and back with the intention of creating a more attractive figure.

Liposuction-Liposculpture

Liposculpture is a surgical technique used to permanently remove fat deposits that are often resistant to diet and exercise and produce an imbalance in your figure.

The operation can be done under regional anesthesia or epidural and sedation. The points done to remove fat are 2.5 mm and are placed at strategic locations going unnoticed even when naked. You can reuse the rendered fat to provide increased volume to the buttocks.

The final result is obtained within 4-6 months; however, by the eighth week significant change can already be noticed.  A special belt that is provided by us is used for three weeks.

 

Buttock augmentation with implants or corporal fat

Buttock augmentation surgery is having great demand in Mexico. The implants are placed through a 5 cm scar in the groove between the buttocks, so it is hidden within the gluteal cleft and thus being hidden when the patient is naked. It is done under epidural anesthesia and requires an overnight hospitalization.

This surgery requires patience because although Dr. Sanmiguel takes less than 2 hours to do it, you will require a strict resting period and to sleep face down during the first 15 days.

In the case of buttock augmentation with fat, it is achieved by liposuction, drawing the patients’ own fat and putting it through a special process during the liposculpture in order to inject it back into the buttocks, creating an increase in volume proportionate to the patient figure obtaining a harmonious form. Care is similar except for the overnight hospitalization.
