Look as Young as You Feel
As you age, your face may begin to lose some of its volume and the skin may begin to sag. Because the effects of age and genetics can dramatically impact your face, facelifts are one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery treatments offered at our Tijuana practice. During this procedure, Dr. Castillo will tighten the underlying muscle structure of your face and remove any excess skin tissue. He may also perform a fat transfer in specific areas to create a more contoured, youthful face.
If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your nose, it can have an enormous impact on your sense of confidence. During a rhinoplasty, Dr. Castillo can reduce the length or width of your nose. He can even alter the shape of your nose with grafts or tissue removal. Dr. Castillo offers both open and closed rhinoplasty, and will provide a comprehensive consultation to help you choose the best procedure for your needs.
Drooping eyelids can cause puffiness, and a sad, angry, or tired appearance. In some cases, severely sagging eyelids can even obstruct your vision. Dr. Castillo offers both upper and lower blepharoplasty to remove excess tissue and fat, giving you a younger, more alert look. To perform the procedure, he creates extremely precise incisions in the fold of your eyelid or under the lash line, resulting in nearly undetectable scarring. Blepharoplasty involves minimal recovery time, and the results can be long-lasting.
If you or your child have protruding, unusually large, or oddly shaped ears, it can cause self-consciousness. During otoplasty or ear pinning, Dr. Castillo will remodel and relocate cartilage and secure the ear so that it lies flatter against the head. Otoplasty is typically performed on children, but the procedure can greatly benefit adults, as well.
Even if you are at an ideal weight, you may have a puffy look to your face that just won’t subside. During Bichat’s fat removal, Dr. Castillo will remove the pads of fat in your cheeks, giving you a dramatically slimmer, more defined look. This treatment is often combined with other procedures, such as rhinoplasty, chin reshaping, or cheekbone surgery for a comprehensive facial reshaping and makeover.
If you lack fullness in your face because of age or genetic factors, your sunken cheeks can make you appear gaunt, weak, or older than you are. While many aesthetic surgeons use implants to add fullness to their patients’ faces, Dr. Castillo employs fat grafting, using fat from the patient’s own body to restore healthy volume to the face. Unlike implants, fat grafting does not require facial incisions and results in a more natural look.
Chin implants are an excellent option if you have a weak, undefined chin, but have healthy jaw and tooth function. To place a chin implant, Dr. Castillo creates a small pocket and inserts the implant, typically made of silicone, just under the lower jaw bone. Implants are available in a range of shapes and sizes that can make the chin both longer and wider.
Full, plump lips are sexy and highly desirable; thin lips can cause a prematurely aged look. Dr. Castillo offers lip augmentation to boost volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. During this procedure, he injects a biocompatible filler into your lips. The procedure is extremely quick, and patients can return to their normal activities that same day.
