In a nose with a very high back, the surgery can lower it, make the nose more regular and more beautiful. On a nose that has the very coarse tip, that “fat tip”, the surgery can leave the most delicate, soft tip. On a nose that has a very sagging tip, it is possible to lift the tip and leave it in a more pleasant position. If the nose is too broad, with the base too wide, these nostrils may narrow. In the nose that has a very wide bone, the bone is sharpened.

Rhinoplasty can decrease or increase the size of the nose. It can change the shape of the tip and may change bulges on the back of the nose. If there are changes in breathing due to an internal problem (septum, sinuses, turbinates), the problem can be corrected at the same time.

Pregnancy, the accordion effect of some weight loss diets and the weight that can be gained naturally over the years are responsible for the accumulation of fat, sagging skin and muscle weakness in the abdomen. In cases where there is localized fat, but the skin has elasticity and muscle tone, liposuction works well for body remodeling. For the other circumstances, the best solution is the abdomen surgery, or abdominoplasty. Abdominoplasty improves the contour of the belly by removing excess skin and fat, correcting the sagging of the abdominal wall muscles and leaving the abdomen flat and the waist thinner.
There are cases where both procedures (liposuction and abdominoplasty) should be associated to a good result, and others in which traditional abdominal surgery can be replaced by miniabdominoplasty, if there is excess skin and fat below the navel.
Liposuction is indicated for patients with localized fat and who are at or near their ideal weight. The reduction of localized fat volume aims to improve body contouring and silhouette, as well as removing the fat that does not come out with diets and exercises. Liposuction can be done on the abdomen, flank, back, legs, arms and face.

In men, hormones favor fat gain mainly in the abdomen and waist.

It is therefore indicated for cases of localized fat accumulation in patients close to ideal weight, without excess skin. The abdominoplasty removes the excess skin and stretches the excess. It only removes the fat that comes out along with the skin. It is indicated for patients with excess skin or flaccidity, with or without excess fat.
Both remove the localized fat, but only liposculpture restores or grafts part of the fat aspirated into other areas that need filling, such as glutes, creases face, mouth, areas of depression in the body. Popularly, the term liposculpture is used to denominate liposuction in several areas in the same surgery.

The most indicated procedures for this type of correction in the eyebrows are: Butolinic Toxin and Castanãres Surgeries and Eyebrow Lifting.
– Butolinic toxin: A non-invasive procedure, done in the office itself and only with a few chopped, takes three to four days to notice the total effect and has four to six months of durability. The anesthesia is local and the patient is released at the same time to go home.
– Castañares surgery: baptized with the name of the doctor who invented the technique, this procedure is done with a cut in the line of the eyebrow to remove the skin and in this way raise the corner. It is a very effective technique that acts directly on the site and the effect is very visible. The scar is almost imperceptible around the eyebrow. The stitches are removed from seven to 10 days.
– Eyebrow Lifting: One way to raise the eyebrow is with cut through the hair, doing the eyebrow lift. Once the cut has been made, it loosens to the skin to the part of the eyebrow and rises. This surgery is a bit more aggressive with a much larger incision, but it also has excellent results.
