Procedures

Facelift

As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun and stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck.

Blepharoplasty (eye surgery)

The eyes, commonly referred to as the windows of the soul, say a great deal about a person. We evaluate people's moods or attitudes by the light in their eyes or its absence. The loose skin over your eyes and the fat bags under them make you look more tired and older than you feel inside.

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)

The nose is one of the most dominant and distinctive features of the human body. Its central location only serves to confirm its importance. However, when it is the center of attention as well, you can be relatively certain that something is out of balance.

Hair Transplant Surgery

The process of losing hair is a natural occurrence. We normally lose about 40-200 hairs daily. Our hair starts to thin out when the lost hairs outnumber the regrowth of the follicles. There are multiple causes of hair loss, the most important being hereditary (genetic).

Fat Transfer

Autologous fat (adipose tissue) transfer is today's number one filling agent for wrinkles and creases on our faces.

Lip Embellishment

Autologous fat (adipose tissue) transfer is today's number one filling agent for wrinkles and creases on our faces.

Neck Lift

A neck lift treats laxity in the sub mental and neck areas. The muscle underneath called the platysma is treated when there are present deep cords or unsightly bands that may form in the neck.

Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

This procedure is indicated for those persons that want to achieve a more youthful and thin arm. The excess skin and adipose tissue are removed.

Breast Augmentation

Breast enhancement or augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries in the world.

Breast Reduction and Breast lift

Breast reduction may give women with large pendulous breasts relief from a variety of problems, from back and neck pain and irritated skin to skeletal deformities and breathing difficulties.

Privacy, low cost makes Costa Rica a hot destination for tummy tucks

“I needed a tummy tuck,” said Burns, 55, who began contacting plastic surgeons in the Atlanta area where she lives. On a Budget, she wanted a breakdown of the costs (surgery, anesthesia, hospital stay, etc.) and a total, but doctors would only give estimates. When one estimate hit $18,000, Burns took her research to the internet, and soon surfed her way to an obesity surgery site group on Yahoo
( httpgroups.yahoo.comgroupossgplasticsurgery ). “And that,” she said, is where I heard about Costa Rica.”
