During your consultation , we will examine you and discuss recommendations for implant and incision placement to yield the best results. We perform breast augmentation using both saline and silicone implants. The procedure is usually done as an outpatient, under general anesthesia administered by a physician anesthesiologist to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Most patients have very little pain following the surgery as well because long-acting local anesthetic is administered as part of the procedure. Most patients return to work about a week after surgery. There may be some bruising for a week or so and some swelling for a few weeks following surgery.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that corrects the signs of facial aging, thus delivering a refreshed, defined, vibrant, and youthful face that now matches how you feel inside. As the years go by, aging of the face is inevitable. The skin begins to loosen in the face and the neck giving way to descend of the midface, jowling at the jawline, deep folds at the corner of the mouth (“marionette lines”), and “double chin” beneath the chin. Mini facelift, mid facelift, lower facelift and neck lift gives call Dr. Esparza, we can help you determine what you need.
High Definition liposculpture
Until recently, achieving a dramatically narrower waistline was a difficult task for most surgeons. This was because the fat around the flanks and lower back that must be removed to narrow the waist is very fibrous and difficult to remove using traditional liposuction techniques.Fortunately, with the advent of VASER technology, this fat can now be comprehensively removed. With high definition VASER liposuction, we can get over 90% reduction in fat volume around the waistline so that your skin retracts up to your muscles; this ability to remove the fat comprehensively makes knowledge of muscle anatomy of the lower back and flanks invaluable.
Although cheek augmentation can be performed using facial implants, Dr. Esparza prefers to utilize the fat transfer technique for patients seeking to achieve more subtle, natural-looking changes to their midface region. When performing a cheek augmentation with fat transfer, Dr. Esparza will use a small, sterile cannula to harvest fat from another region of the body (commonly the buttocks, abdomen, or thighs). He will purify and sterilize the fat in a centrifuge before meticulously injecting very small quantities into the cheeks utilizing a micro-syringe that allows him to work with the utmost precision and accuracy.
The first step in an abdominoplasty is to make an incision across the abdomen, below the navel. The length of the incision varies based on the amount of skin to be removed. In some cases, the incision will stretch from hip bone to hip bone, while in others it will be shorter. After separating the abdominal skin and cutting it away from the navel, the surgeon repositions and tightens the stomach muscles. Finally, he stretches the skin down, trimming away the excess, creating a new hole for the navel, and reattaching the skin to complete the tummy tuck.
Rhinoplasty Nose Job & Nose Revision
If you wish your nose was smaller, had a better shape, or was simply more aesthetically pleasing, then a nose job – technically called a rhinoplasty – can help you get the facial profile you have always wanted. Nose surgery and non surgical procedures can radically improve a person’s confidence and for patients a rhinoplasty often corrects the biggest issue they have with their appearance. Rhinoplasty specialists Dr. Esparza, can address all of these structural and aesthetic issues.
Eye Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Your eyes are one of your most expressive features, helping you communicate without words. But if your eyes appear tired, aged, or even angry, they may be giving others the wrong impression. Eyelid Lift surgery (blepharoplasty) helps our patients reduce under-eye puffiness, drooping lids, and soften wrinkles in a way that looks natural, not “worked on.” This results in a more attractive appearance that better reflects how you feel – happy, youthful, and confident.
Otoplasty ears surgery
While most cosmetic procedures are only for adults, ear surgery (otoplasty) is actually performed more often in children between the ages of 4 and 14. If your child’s ears seem asymmetrical, misshapen or disproportionate to the head and other facial features, cosmetic ear surgery can help him or her feel less self-conscious. And of course, adults who have concerns about the appearance of their ears can be helped through ear surgery as well.
If you have recently had a baby and you are done having children, you may benefit from a mommy makeover, especially if you are unhappy with the way your body looks. It is important for you to feel good about yourself even after experiencing the miracle of birth. Birth is a wonderful thing, but it does leave your body in shambles afterwards. Some women can bounce back from the surgery and have a flat stomach or perky breasts, but not all women can. When you need an extra push for your body, plastic surgery is the key.
Breast lift and reduction
Many plastic surgeons perform the breast reduction surgery with techniques that emphasize only final size. Unfortunately this “size only” method often leaves the breasts smaller, but still lacking the pleasing shape necessary to wear the fashions our patients desire. Our approach is unique, we believe the best breast reduction results come from working toward an appropriate size and shape for your body, we provide the best surgery techniques to give you a visual Harmony, and beauty sensation.
Chunky, dimpled thighs are the bane of many women’s — and even some men’s — existence. A thigh lift (thighplasty) can reduce excess skin and fat in the thigh and knee area, resulting in a redefined, slim and taut thigh that will look great in skinny jeans, mini-skirts and bathing suits. Today’s modern thigh lift surgery aims to create thighs that are proportionate to the buttocks, abs and legs. Ideally, the trunk and outer thighs should form an hour-glass silhouette and indent toward the waist, with a smooth outward curve to the outer thighs.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Our patients don’t need to look far to see that fuller, sculpted butts are in. Squats and lunges can only do so much, which is why Dr. Alejandro offers a Brazilian butt lift for patients who want to reshape their butts for a curvier appearance. A Brazilian butt lift combines liposuction from one part of the body with gluteal reshaping to enhance your buttocks using unwanted fat from other parts of your body. This dual procedure can dramatically reshape your body for a proportion that aligns with your ideal body type and goals.
A chin augmentation is a common procedure that is performed to correct a “weak” chin, strengthen the jawline and improve the balance of the facial profile. A small or weak chin can make the neck appear “fatty” and undefined as well as give the lower face a “grumpy” or “pouty” expression. A chin implant corrects the “pouty” look to the lower face and creates a more pleasant, balanced facial expression after the surgery. In the long term, the implant becomes attached to the jawbone and it cannot be moved, felt or dislodged by physical contact, sports or facial expressions.
Bichectomia or Bichat bags.
Buccal Fat Removal is a minimal invasive plastic surgery procedure that removes the fullness of the chubby cheeks, and therefore is ideal for people with round cheeks who wish to have a slightly more chiseled expression (thinner of V shape face). Dr. Esparza specializes in buccal fat removal under local anesthesia (without sedation or general anesthesia), to excise the buccal fat pads (bichat part pads) from the cheek and achieve a slimmer facial appearance.
Liposuction & body sculpture
Tumescent liposuction, also known as tumescent liposculpture, is internationally recognized as the safest liposuction technique with the fastest recovery time, the best aesthetic results and the least pain. This method of liposuction is done completely by local anesthesia and avoids the dangers of general anesthesia, narcotic analgesics and IV sedation. LipoSelection only by VASER® combines new patented ultrasonic technology to break up and remove fatty tissue. Unwanted fat can be efficiently removed from abs, arms, back, hips, knees, love handles, saddlebags, thighs – any place you’ve developed a little “extra cushioning faster and more effectively. The ultrasound energy breaks up and emulsify fat, leaving surrounding tissue – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue – relatively intact. Vaser liposuction will give your body a high definition sculpture.
Brachioplasty Arm Surgery ( Arm lift )
An arm lift — with or without liposuction — can help your arms go from “flabulous” to fabulous. This procedure can create a sculpted upper arm that complements your figure and your wardrobe. Today’s arm lift techniques are safer and the scars much less conspicuous than in the past. An arm lift typically takes one to three hours depending on the extent of the surgery. It may involve local anesthesia with intravenous sedation — leaving you awake, but not totally aware — or general anesthesia. Liposuction alone may be sufficient for people with smooth skin and just a small amount of flab. The arm lift procedure may benefit people with larger areas of fat underneath the arms, poor skin quality and sun-damaged skin.
There are a number of anatomic factors that can cause fullness in the neck and a resulting loss of a youthful neck contour including an accumulation of fat, excessive loose skin, muscle “banding” and/or a “short” neck. The proper procedure to reverse aging of the neck is therefore based upon which anatomic factors need to be corrected. If excessive skin is the only problem, either a radiofrequency skin tightening procedure or a facelift may be necessary depending on the actual amount of loose skin. If the problem is related to an excess accumulation of neck fat (i.e. “the double chin”), the fat can be removed via liposuction alone in order to achieve a more sculpted neckline.
Many men develop excess skin or breast tissue on their chests. This is a syndrome called gynecomastia and can lead to discomfort and embarrassment. The problem can be treated with direct excisional surgery, liposuction, or a combination of the two. Your anatomy will determine the best approach, and our plastic surgeons will explain how best to proceed.
Many men and women feel extremely self-conscious about their thin, shapeless calves. As a result, calf implant surgery is in demand. The majority of people opting for calf implants are men looking to increase bulk and add muscular definition and contour to their calves, but calf implants are not just plastic surgery for men. Women, too, may opt for calf augmentation so that their legs and thighs are symmetrical.
