Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic or reconstructive surgery treats congenital, acquired or tumor malformations and/or diminishes signs of aging. It may include body contouring and function restoration.

At Meditar, we focus on providing professional and comprehensive solutions, including the latest non-invasive treatments, to those who need or elect to undergo facial or body surgery.

Major surgeries are performed at our renowned hospitals, while minor surgeries, non-invasive treatments and outpatient visits take place at our providers’ specialized facilities.

Our procedures include:

Body Contouring:

Treatment of small, localized adipose tissue, congenital or acquired, These are usually minor outpatient procedures with short post-surgery recovery times, enabling patients to resume their normal activities almost immediately.

We also offer major lipodystrophy treatments requiring longer post-surgery recovery times and the use of leggings or compression garments to achieve proper body shaping. Patients can usually resume their normal activities within three to four days.

Following childbirth or weight loss, the abdominal area may lose muscle tone, Outpatient surgical procedures can correct flaccidity.

This procedure removes the hanging or excess skin apron after considerable weight loss. Following a special diet or bariatric surgery, this procedure restores abdominal firmness and muscle tone and repositions excess skin, greatly improving appearance.

These are the most frequent procedures we perform.
Each procedure addresses specific patient needs.

Face:

  • Rhinoplasty (cosmetic nose surgery)
  • Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
  • Mentoplasty (chin surgery)
  • Rhytidoplasty (face and neck lift)

Breasts:

  • Augmentation mastoplasty
    (breast enlargement)
  • Reductive mastoplasty (breast reduction)
  • Mastopexy (breast lift)

Minimally Invasive and Non-Invasive Procedures

Meditar employs the most qualified professionals and the latest equipment
to ensure satisfactory and safe results in the shortest time possible.

Botulinum toxin is a protein of biological origin used in non-invasive medical and cosmetic treatments. It acts by relaxing the muscles and, consequently, softening the fine lines and wrinkles caused by the repeated contraction of the facial muscles.

It is most frequently and effectively used in the upper third of the face to minimize lines between the eyebrows, on the forehead and around the eyes (“crow’s feet”) as well as  horizontal wrinkles at the top and on the sides of the nose. It is applied by injection in a single 20-minute session; it is not painful and does not require previous preparation or anesthesia. There are no toxic hazards, since botulinum toxin doses are extremely low.

After the procedure, patients may immediately resume normal activities, but they are asked to avoid massaging or touching the area, exercising or lying down for the first three hours, in order to allow the toxin to settle in the injected site.

Effects start showing within 72 hours after treatment, with full results seen 15 days after the application. Effects last for approximately 4 to 6 months.

Botulin toxin is not recommended for use in people with certain neuromuscular disorders such as myasthenia gravis or in individuals taking certain medications.

Hyaluronic acid is frequently used in skin cosmetic treatments to hydrate skin as well as to fill furrows, treat acne scars, enhance lip volume and shape, and remove perioral wrinkles (smoker’s lines) around the mouth.

Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide present in human connective tissue, including the skin. It is the most important elastic component of the skin, enabling it to retain water.

The injection of hyaluronic acid does not require topical anesthesia. It may cause temporary and slight skin redness, inflammation, discoloration and pain which may disappear in 48 hours. Very rarely are additional injections needed. In contrast with other cosmetic applications, hyaluronic acid neither modifies natural looks nor facial features, nor requires allergy tests.It cannot be used in individuals allergic to chicken or eggs.

The duration of the effects depend on the amount of product injected and the technique employed. Reabsorption speed depends on the individual´s lifestyle, skin type and environmental conditions. In general, treatments are repeated every 12 months.

Face and body contouring

The Accent Ultra V is the most complete and high-tech procedure for body and face contouring, to improve skin texture and treat difficult skin conditions. Combining technologies that up to now were found in three separate systems, the Accent Ultra V offers three different treatments:

iTED: Transepidermal administration of active agents to treat difficult skin conditions including melasma, stretch marks and scars, as well as to lighten or resurface the skin.

Face (V-Shape) and body contouring: Combining selective ultrasound waves, radiofrequency and an automatic lymphatic drainage system to noninvasively remove and/or reduce localized fat deposits, reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten the skin.

Lipolysis: Invasive reduction of localized fat deposits with a 980-nm laser diode that removes fat while tightening the skin.

Permanent hair removal

The permanent hair removal system of choice in Europe and U.S. In one session, 50% of undesired hair is removed without harming the skin or causing pain. The innovative system combines CW high-power diode technology with an SHR mode to treat areas more quickly and completely than conventional hair removal methods can.

 

Soprano XLi treatments:

  • Are virtually painless
  • Require no pain relievers or pretreatments
  • Work fast
  • Require no recovery time; normal activities can be resumed immediately
  • Are effective for all skin types (including tanned skin) and all types of hair
  • Do not cause the side effects of conventional hair removal treatments, such as redness, inflammation or spots
  • Are perfect for any area of the body, including sensitive areas such as the face, neck and bikini line

Soprano XLI works by progressively raising the temperature of the dermis to permanently damage the hair follicle and prevent regrowth, without requiring extra cooling systems or pain relievers.

Single-session skin tightening and rejuvenation

Ultherapy is the only non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound power to lift and tighten sagging skin around the eyebrows, eyelids, chin and neckline. It is the only procedure approved by the FDA for non-surgical lifting of those areas. The procedure stimulates the lower layers of the skin –- the areas typically targeted for surgical lifting — to develop new collagen, without damaging the epidermis (skin surface). The technology allows the doctor to target the precise location where the procedure will provide the greatest benefit.

Skin resurfacing and tightening

Harmony XL Pro is a unique, intensive skin resurfacing treatment whose tightening effects can be felt from the first session.

Patients of all ages interested in improving the appearance of their face, neck, chin, arms, abdomen, legs, buttocks or thighs or in removing tattoos, spots, varicose veins, spider veins or scars can be treated with Harmony XL Pro.

 

The procedure requires no incisions nor the use of anesthesia or pain medications.
