  • This procedure takes about 30 min. There will be inflammation during five or seven days.

Evaluation for a facelift!

Before the procedure, Dr. Gutierrez have to considered an additional number of procedures that can be performed simultaneously, according to the patient’s needs:

  • Derma-abrasion: Consists of mechanical scraping to remove two surface layers of skin that develop a crust.  A new skin will surface after 5 or 6 days, and after month in the crow’s feet and frown line.
  • Corners or aging around the mouth: A filler is used to define the edge and red volume of the lip. This procedure uses general anesthesia or local and light sedation.
