Frequently asked questions about facial esthetic surgery procedures:
Yes, the ear surgery gives permanent results.
Usually around 25 minutes.
After otoplasty the patient can get back to their normal life on the same day of the intervention. The surgery is carried out at the clinic, without requiring hospitalisation, ensuring a speedy and comfortable postoperative period for the patient.
Yes, with the Buccal fat pad technique. By using 3D imaging techniques, the Maxillofacial Institute’s team has demonstrated the stability of using the buccal fat pad as a pedicle graft for providing an adequate projection of the cheeks.
At any time, and especially for patients who have cheeks that do not project, that lack three dimensionality.
Under local anaesthetic and with outpatient sedation.
Yes. However, you must remember that some of the fat will be reabsorbed after a few months, so the final aesthetic evaluation must be made only after a period of time. The results of this new cheek augmentation technique using Buccal fat pads are very natural.
Canthoplasty can be undertaken at any age. There are no secondary effects if the intervention is carried out at an early age.
No, the intervention is only performed on the lower eyelid, without affecting the ocular structure in the slightest.
It is very short and comfortable for the patient. The patient will have totally recovered within a few hours after the intervention. Moreover, the aesthetic results are immediate.
Always under local anaesthetic.
You can have Botox treatment at any age. However, its use is recommended when the first wrinkles appear. Advice: wrinkles should be prevented, not treated.
Around 4 to 6 months. The length of time depends on factors such as the quality of the skin or the age of the patient.
Depending on the patient’s age and the quality of their skin, the maxillofacial surgeon will outline a personalised plan and treatment doses for them.
To date, there is no known case of an allergic reaction to Botox.
The first signs of facial ageing are generally resolved with lipofilling. Facelift surgery is usually reserved for obvious wrinkles that are not candidates for treatments that increase the volume of the soft tissue.
Facelift surgery can usually be carried out after the age of 35-40. There is no upper age limit for having this procedure.
Yes. Facelift surgery eliminates excess skin and repositions the facial musculature without changing the patient’s natural facial expression. Thus, the facial expression is usually even better. To obtain optimum results, it is very important to contact a good specialist.
After the facelift, the skin continues its normal ageing process but you will always appear much younger than your real age. So the results will last for the rest of your life.
During the first three days after the intervention there may be a slight inflammation of the skin, but this will disappear quickly.
The effect of cheiloplasty can last a lifetime. In cases where hyaluronic acid is used it is possible to have more than one session. The time between the different infiltrations will be indicated by the specialist.
Immediately after the intervention.
It depends on the patient’s skin, on the specific area of the lip to be treated and the results the patient wants to obtain.
Yes, you only have to be careful about touching the treated area as little as possible.
Moisturise the treated area, protect it from the sun and avoid heat during the first two or three days.
Mentoplasty is a good alternative to other more complex surgical procedures such as orthognathic surgery when the improvement desired is only aesthetic and the patient’s bite is correct.
No, mentoplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, which leaves no visible sign of scarring.
Normally, the patient can resume their daily routine within two or three days after this type of intervention. Inflammation, which is usually very slight, subsides within two or three days of the operation.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can last for up to 10 years approximately.
No, the surgery is minimally invasive, carried out by making with invisible incisions.
Yes, at least for the first 3 or 4 days, to protect them from external agents such as the sun or air pollution.
Depending on the type of surgery, small hematomas or oedemas might appear on the sides of the nose. These will disappear within a few days.
During the first few weeks the patient should not do any sports such as running or swimming.
The results can be seen on the same day as the intervention, and when the inflammation starts to subside the results look amazing.
The experts at the Maxillofacial Institute offer a virtual aesthetic prediction of the results of the rhinoplasty, using special facial aesthetics software.
The patient can usually resume their daily routine within two or three days after nose surgery.
