Last week, Dr. Evans spent a few days in São Paulo, Brazil, speaking at the Jornada Paulista Plastic Surgery Meeting. This is an annual regional meeting of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgeons (SBCP).
As we all age, lines in our facial skin become more prominent. There are several ways to address these age lines or what we also call Facial Rhytids. One way is surgical (facelift) and a second is a combination of surgery and/or facial fillers alone. Fillers are composed mostly of hyuronic acid with varying size of particles that are injected either as a way to augment our surgical technique if facial rhytids are very prominent, or separately in the office to fill in these lines if less prominent.
As we age, the effects of gravity, sun exposure and daily stresses can be seen in our faces and especially in the eyelids. An eyelid surgery in California can improve the most visible signs of aging by removing upper eyelid’s excess skin and sometimes fat (other times it is repositioned to avoid a hollow look), tightening of the laxity of underlying muscles and ligaments of lower eyelids with re-draping of any excess skin.
Mastopexy is a procedure where breasts are lifted. This procedure is done to reposition breast tissue and nipples to more appropriate location on the chest wall. Also, there will be improvement in breast shape along with more fullness over the superior part of the breasts.
