The face and neck are the parts of the body where the effects of the passage of time are most visible. For many people, this can be a source of insecurity and low self-esteem. In such cases, antiaging aesthetic surgery is a good solution to reduce the effects of aging, improve one’s facial appearance and recover self-confidence. The most common procedures correct issues like falling cheekbones, forehead wrinkles or crows’ feet.
A rhinoplasty is a type of intervention designed to change the appearance of the nose. Many people decide to undergo a rhinoplasty to improve the harmony and balance of their face, as well as to improve respiratory issues that can result in discomfort. These interventions last approximately 1 to 2 hours, depending on the complexity of each case. Recovery takes about eight days. Generally, no hospitalization is required and the postoperative period generates very little inconvenience.
Otoplasties can resolve any sort of aesthetic problem related to the ears, such as malformations, deformations or, most commonly, protruding ears. This type of aesthetic surgery corrects the position and the shape of ears. Otoplasty is a simple procedure which does not require hospitalization and one of the few that adolescents can undergo.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is a procedure used to remove pockets of fat and excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids. The result of this type of intervention is a fresh, youthful appearance, as it eliminates effects of tiredness and aging. This type of surgery does not require hospitalization, and patients can recover everyday activity 10 days after surgery.
Aesthetic Body SurgeryDr Jose Luis Martínez Rivas performs all sorts of aesthetic body surgery, with the goal of improving patients’ physical appearance.

Breast Augmentation is one of the most common types of aesthetic body surgery. Improvements and innovation in the techniques used have reduced the discomfort and recovery time a great deal, to only a few days. This type of intervention increases the volume of the breasts, corrects asymmetry or improves the shape of the breasts after considerable weight loss or pregnancy. The augmentation is obtained with the placement of latest-generation silicone gel protheses.
Breast Reduction serves to reduce the size of the breasts, making them smaller, firmer, and more in proportion to the rest of the body. Normally, patients undergo breast reductions because the excess weight causes back and shoulder problems that affect everyday activity.
Pregnancy, breast-feeding and aging can result in the gradual descent of the breasts. This intervention, also known as mastopexia, serves to improve the shape and placement of the breasts, which acquire a more youthful appearance. In cases where they have also lost volume, breast elevation can be accompanied by augmentation with the placement of silicone gel protheses.
Gynecomastia is the result of the abnormal development of men’s mammary glands, which can acquire dimensions much larger than normal and an appearance similar to those of a woman. With surgery, the size of the breasts is reduced and their appearance is improved.
Abdominoplasty improves the appearance of the abdomen. Pregnancy, aging or significant changes in weight can cause the abdomen to lose shape. With this procedure, excess skin and abdominal fat are removed, the waistline is defined and the position of abdominal muscles is restored.
Liposuction serves to eliminate localized, persistent pockets of fat and improve one’s silhouette. This technique, which involves the removal of fat, can be applied in different parts of the body such as legs, back, arms, thighs, hips or buttocks.
