This surgery gives the face a more relaxed, healthier and beautiful appearance. Unlike many other aesthetic surgeries, eyelid surgery is also done for medical reasons: the eye is more open and there is no “heaviness” in the eyes.
Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure that removes or tightens sagging skin around the eyes, resulting in a smoother, tighter appearance. It is also the most effective surgery performed under local anesthesia. The upper and lower lids are operated together or separately, depending on the desired look. This procedure can be performed without any incisions (trans- conjunctival technique) where the fat tissues are removed / rearranged. This approach is applied when there is excess fat around the eyes and no excess skin.
The position of the scars is on the upper eyelid fold and beneath the eyelashes on the lower lid. Stitches are removed 5 days later whilst make up can be applied 10 days after the surgery however; scars are less visible after 1 month. For the first month of recovery sun glasses should be worn on sunny days.
Dermabrasion for skin rejuvenation
Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure that makes way for a new, smoother layer of skin to replace the skin that’s been treated. This treatment is done under local anesthesia with special creams or with analgosedation.
A diamond dermabrader is used to remove the outer layers of your skin and improve any irregularities in your skin’s surface. This can be done by chemical peel (glycol acid 7.5%, 15%, 30%) or by laser treatment. Then, a collagen mask is applied every 3 days, for a total of 6-8 days. This mask stays in the face and it serves to protect from possible infections and harsh weather, as well as keeping the new skin hydrated.
During post-op, the skin is light pink for the first 3 months; after 6 months, the skin will have regained its ordinary colour. It is recommended to avoid exposure to the sun until the skin acquires its natural colour.
Dermabrasion is not recommended for smokers because it can leave unequal skin pigmentation.

Recovery consists of swelling, which reduces gradually and usually lasts 7-10 days.

The nose, as central figure in the face, has significant role i aesthehic and functional sense.
It is the only organ conatining all the human tissues: skin, sub cutis, fat, bone, cartilage and mucous skin. All these tissues heal and revive differently. Thus, it is prone to changing the appearance for a long period of time. Aesthetic nose surgery is often combined with correction of a septum deviation.

Recovery involves special care of nose cavities with cotton buds and ointments for mucous tissue. Patient should avoid blowing the nose while the glasses should not be worn for 6 months.

This is one of the oldest and traditional techniques of body contouring/shaping.
Surgery is performed in total anesthesia. Before the operation the patient receives anticoagulant thepary. The elimination of smaller surfaces of fat concetration is performed with a classical aspirator and special cannulas. The fat eliminated by cannula is distributed in other parts of the body in order to obtain a more attractive figure. The size of the entry holes is 3mm.

Buttocks augmentation with implants and fat transfer
Buttocks enlargment with implants is a very demanding operation for the patient. The surgery is carried out in total anesthesia. A small incision is made in the intergluteal fold and implant is inserted within the major buttocks muscle. The implats are chosen in accordance with the desired size and width of the pelvis. After the surgery, the patient must sleep on the stomach for six weeks, the patient will not be able to sit on the implants and is obliged to wear a compression garment. Regular hygiene is very iportant in order to revent infections.
Buttock enlargement with fat is a very interesting technique and less complicated for the patient, as it is carried out in peridural analgesia. Into each of the patient’s buttocks is injected 350-500ml of fat, which completely reshapes and lifts them. The percent of fat cell survival is 80-90%. The patient resumes his everyday activities immediately afte the operation, can sit and lie normally.
Enlargement of legs and lower legs with implants and fat
Enlargement of thighs and lower legs is a procedure that can seriously improve the appearance of uneven of deformed leg(s). This can be done in two ways: by implants or autologous fat. The inner part of the thighs and lower legs are enlarged by implants. The operation is carried out in general anesthesia.
Implants above the knees are inserted through incisions in the groins and lower legs implants through the folds behind the knees. After the operation the patient is recommmended to rest with their legs elevated; a compression garment or bandages for veins are obligatory. After that, the patient can walk around and is entering a proceess of adaptation. Contrary to breast and buttocks implants, patient can feel the implants and it takes few months to get used to them.
Enlargement of the lower legs and thighs is certainly easier technique for the patient. The only requirement is a great quantity of fat necessary to fill an entire leg, 1000-1500ml, depending on the size of the patient’s leg. Therefore, it is necessary fo the patient to have certain amount of fat.
After the operation, support compression bandages must be worn for one month and the patient can go back to their regular activities.
The opretional incisions are made below the breasts, at nipple level, in the armpit and through the belly button (endoscope assisted). Prosthesis can be round (low,medium or high profiled) with cohesin get I and II, or bio-dimensional (anatomical shape implants) with highly cohesion gel lll or polyurethane. Implants are chosen according to the taste of the patient: whether they want rount or natural breasts. For naturally beatiful breasts we recommend anatomic – bio-dimensional implants or polyurethane implants.
Breast lift and breast reduction
Breast lift and reduction is one of the more demanding surgeries by which you obtain the desired form, size and aspect of the breasts. There’s a great choice of techniques. One of the methods is by ultrasonic device, by which the breast can be lifted 4-6 cm and excess fat can be removed from the breasts withouts scars. This surgery does not give a maximum aesthetical effect. It is of utmost importance to stop taking aspirins, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs and estrogenic hormones one month before the surgery.
Enlargement or reduction of breasts can be carries out by an incision around the nipple, cutting of the skin and the gland (periareolar round block technique of „tobacco bag“). Periareolar and vertilac reduction eliminates the excess skin and glands leaving lineal scars, which fade away completely in time. There is no pain after the operation.
In case of sagging and empy breasts, the skin is reduces-mastopexy, the volume is made up by implants that give the breasts a long lasting firmness. Compressive garment is mandatory for one month.
Enlarged male breasts can be a serious aesthetical problem for men which can be solved easily.
In case of smaller fat breasts, the operaion can be carried out by mechanical liposuction. Larger breasts can be operated by ultrasound device that eliminates fat tissue, the gland and tightens the skin or by standard surgery. The excess of skin and glands is eliminated arount the nipples by surgery. Compressive garment is mandatory for a month.

It is of utmost importance to stop taking aspiring, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs and hormone estrogen therapy one month before the operation.
Recovery is seven days long, bandages are worn for a month and lymphatic massage is applied from the fifteenth day up to a month.
Total body lift
Patiens who have lost a lot of weight are often facing the problem of excess skin which can be eliminated by surgery.
The patient must be in excellent health condition, with good blood test results, a nonsmoker and not to suffer from diabetes. This operation is quite risky, due to large incisions and a big wound surface. In the pre-op phase, a certain amount of blood is taken from the patient which is afterwards returned to them during the surgery. This procedure allows eliminating excess skin from the upper arms, abdomen, back and upper legs.
Recovery period is 4-6 week and compressive therapy with bandages in one month. Depending on the skin quality and the revival form, the scars can be hypertrophic or keloid. Even though the scars never disappear, the they gradually fade away and are well hidden.
