Our Surgeries

Body

Tummy Tuck - Abdominoplasty

What is an abdominoplasty?

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is the common term with which the surgical procedure to correct a flaccid and protruding abdomen is named. The areas to be treated include the center of the abdomen, and may extend to the whole area between the lower rib cage and the pubic bone or even the sides and the back part. This procedure may include different surgical techniques depending on the result wanted. When the reason for the intervention is localized fat, the liposuction would be the appropriate solution to shape the abdomen.

When we add a large weight loss, these would create an excess of tissue and skin, the tummy tuck removes skin and fat with an incision. The weakened or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis) may also be corrected with an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck.

The results achieved with this surgery do not replace those of a regular workout or of loosing weight with a balanced diet. Even though the results of this procedure are permanent, these may diminish greatly if your weight fluctuates or if your lifestyle changes suddenly.

Am I a good candidate?

The tummy tuck is an adequate procedure for people of any age which are healthy, close to their ideal weight and size and possess a good muscular tonicity. They must not have any diseases that compromise their health nor smoke and have clear and realistic goals to improve their physical appearance.

Recovery Time

Return to work in 2 to 6 weeks. Normal activities can be reestablish in 8 or 12 weeks.

What does the surgery consist of?

During the first consult, any doubts will be answered by the surgeon. Dr. Robles will inform you of all the specifics of the treatment, always taking into account realistic goals and expectations.

Once the patient is ready to go into de operating room, the surgeon will mark the areas that will be treated and then he will take some photos of them to compare the status previous to the surgery with the one after it. After this is done, the patient will be sedated and locally anesthetized. The surgeon will proceed with the incisions. A full abdominoplasty needs horizontal incisions in the area between the pubic hair growth line and the belly button. Both the shape and the size of the incision will depend on how much the body needs to be corrected. Through this incision, the weakened abdominal muscles are repaired, while the fat and skin excess are removed. In case it is necessary to remove any excess skin of the higher abdomen, a second necessary will be needed. When the correction needed is in the area below the belly button, a mini tummy tuck or mini abdominoplasty, which has a very tiny incision, is usually recommended. It could also be done with a liposuction. When excess fat is the only issue, then a simple liposuction may have better results.

Liposuction - Laser and Ultrasonic

What is a liposuction?

Liposuction is the surgical removal of localized or excessive adipose tissue. There are three different types of procedures, the traditional one in which the excess localized fat is suctioned; the second technique uses saline and in some cases local anesthesia previous to removing the excess fat; the third technique is the ultrasonic liposuction, ultrasonic waves are used to melt the excess fat before being suctioned.

These techniques may be used to remove excess fat in areas such as the jowl, neck, arms, chest or breast (gynecomastia), back, abdomen, thighs, gluteus, knees and ankles.

In some cases, the liposuction is the only surgery done, in some others it is possible that other procedures are added, such as face lifts, breast reduction or dermolipectomy. The liposuction is not a technique to deal with obesity or a substitute of a proper diet or workout. Neither is it a treatment aimed at treating cellulites. Nevertheless, this procedure may shape the body where localized fat disproportions the body.

Am I a good candidate?

Adult patients with a relatively stable weight who posses a firm an elastic skin with good muscular tone. It is mandatory that they are in good health, that is to say, they cannot have any disease that may compromise their health or that may harm the healing process. It is also recommendable that they don’t smoke and that they keep a positive attitude towards taking care of their body and appearance.

Recovery Time

Varies according to the technique and the number of areas, as well as the amount of fat to be removed. Back to work in 21 days. Normal activity in 3 or 8 weeks.

What does the surgery consist of?

After having the consult with Dr. Robles and his assessment on your overall health and obtaining his approval for the surgery, you will be able to go into the operation room. Dr. Robles will then mark the areas of your body that you agreed to modify and that he will operate. He will then take some pictures of those marks in order to compare the results together once the surgery is done.

The liposuction is performed by doing small incisions which are hidden by the natural folds of the skin. A small cannula enters into these incisions, and through it, the localized fat is suctioned and extracted from the body. Your body will show improvements once the swelling and the fluid retention wear off. With a proper diet and workout, the weight loss will be permanent; in any case, you need to keep in mind that the results will be altered if your weight changes notably.

Buttock Implants - Gluteoplasty - Brazilian Butt

What is a gluteoplasty?

The gluteoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at increasing the size and shape of the gluteus. There are several procedures to proceed in this area: some of them are surgical and others non-surgical ones. Within the first group we can find the gluteoplasty which augments the area of the gluteus by adding silicone implants or by injecting fat (buttocks injections).

This area is divided into three different sub-areas: upper, mid and lower gluteus. Even though there are several techniques to achieve the results you are looking for, the upper and mid gluteus will be the areas that most of the interventions focus on.

There are several conditions that require this surgery. Some of the most important are the bilateral gluteus hypoplasia (lack of volume), unilateral congenital atrophy (lack of growth since birth), unilateral acquired atrophy (lack of development before a trauma) and unilateral agenesis.

Taking into account your situation, Dr. Robles will decide the technique (implant of fat grafting) and type of implant he will use. The factors he will consider are the shape of your body, hips, gluteus and the condition to be improved.

The types of implants most commonly used are those of solid silicone or silicone gel. These come in different shapes, usually oval, round or almond-shaped.

Am I a good candidate for the surgery?

The best candidates for this intervention are those people who are in good health and are not affected by any serious disease that may affect your physical integrity or the healing process. Patients should not smoke to avoid any complications. They should have clear objectives and wish to improve their looks, and in order to do that, they must follow all the indications given by Dr. Robles to the letter.

Recovery Time

Back to work in 2 weeks. Resume vigorous activities in 6 weeks.

What does the surgery consist of?

After Dr. Robles checks your health and selects the technique and kind of implant he’ll use, you’ll be ready to go into the operating room. Once in there, the doctor will mark the areas where he will perform the incisions and he will also take pictures in order to compare the results. After doing this, you will enter the OR and then you will be anesthetized and sedated to begin the surgery.

The surgery lasts approximately 2 hours, and it begins with a 2,7 inch incision on the inter-gluteus fold, approximately an inch above the anus. The doctor will try not to surpass the bifurcation of the gluteus, since that would make the incision visible. On top of that the doctor will perform a few stitches to avoid the area to be operated from moving.

Once this is done, the doctor will set a pocket in the gluteus, where he will then place the implants. If the treatment desired is the buttocks injection, then the doctor will first conduct a liposuction from an area of your body, in order to inject it into the gluteus. After completing the surgery, he will start closing the incision carefully. He will also put a tissue adhesive over the incisions.

Butt Lift - Brazilian Butt Lift - Buttocks Lift

What is a Butt Lift - Brazilian Butt Lift - Buttocks Lift?

Buttocks lift is the surgery used to correct the excessive amounts of skin and the irregular form of the gluteus.

This surgery improves the shape and tonicity of the underlying tissues which act as support for the skin and fat. The excess of skin and fat is removed to improve the conditions that appear due to a poor elasticity of the tissues. This treatment may very well improve the condition of the skin with cellulites.

The butt lift surgery is not the best treatment if you want to correct an excessive amount of fat. The appropriate surgery in that case would be Liposuction as long as the skin has a good elasticity and may adapt to the new shape of the body. If this is not the case, then the liposuction and buttocks lift will be recommended.

Am I a good candidate?

In order to be a good candidate, the patient must have a stable and reasonable weight for their height and body structure. Patients must have realistic goals and wish to improve their body shape, with good health and who do not suffer any disease that may compromise their lives or their healing. Ideally, the patient should not smoke.

What does the surgery consist of?

Dr. Robles will mark the areas of your body where he will perform the incisions. He will photograph your body to be able to compare the results after the surgery. Once he’s done that, you will be sedated and anesthetized, in order to begin with the surgery.

The surgery will be specifically designed for you, according to the regions that need to be treated. The Butt Lift - Brazilian Butt Lift - Buttocks Lift reduces the excessive amount of skin and gives a new shape. The type of incision will vary according to the shape of the areas, the extent of the surgery, the patient’s body and any specifications that Dr. Robles decides. A couple incisions on top of the gluteus will be used to remove the excess of fat and skin, and to reposition and stretch the tissues. A mix of liposuction and surgical buttocks lift will be needed to achieve a better shape of your body. The stitches which are supported internally with the underlying tissues will aid in giving your body its new shape. The incisions will be closed with stitches, skin adhesive, or clips.

The new shape of your body will be seen almost immediately after the surgery. Even though you will have bruises and swelling on the area. The quality of the skin will be improved drastically. Although the incision lines will be permanent they are really small and can be easily hidden.

Arm Lift - Brachioplasty

What is an arm lift?

The arm lift surgery is a procedure that remodels the lower part of the arm from the armpit to the elbow. This surgery is focused on reducing the excess skin that hangs from the arms and tightening the underlying tissues that give the arm shape.

Furthermore, each localized fat deposit of the area will be reduced with this procedure and liposuction techniques.

The conditions treated with the arm lift surgery can appear both on men and women, in many cases due to a loss of elasticity of the skin and the close areas. This could happen after a significant weight drop when the stretched skin does not contract again. Some other important factors could be age or family heritage.

In spite of all the benefits of this surgery, this technique does not strengthen weakened muscles.

Am I a good candidate for the surgery?

The best candidates are those patients that have a steady weight and are healthy. They cannot have any diseases that may compromise their health or the healing process. It is also very important that they are non-smokers and that they keep clear and realistic goals to improve their looks.

Recovery Time

Return to work in 2 to 3 weeks. Normal activities can be reestablished in 3 or 6 weeks.

What does the surgery consist of?

Once you’ve had your consult with Dr. Robles, and he’s deemed the surgery necessary, you will be ready to go into the operating room. In there, the doctor will mark the incision lines, and take pictures of the areas to compare the results.

Then, you will be locally anesthetized and sedated, in order to begin with the surgery. Initially, the doctor will make an incision on the lower part of the arm and towards the armpit. Depending on your physical conditions, the amount and location of the excess skin to be removed, the incision may be larger or smaller. If there is an excess of fat, it will be removed by liposuction. The underlying tissue will then be stretched and remodeled with internal stitches. The incisions will be closed with stitches, that may be self-absorbing or not. In those cases that the stitches are not self-absorbing, they will be removed one or two weeks after the surgery.

Calf Implants - Calf Augmentation

What is a calf implant?

Lots of people find it difficult to improve this area of the body with workout. Even when they train, their legs seem thin and without a good shape. In some other cases, a disease may have deteriorated the calves. In these cases, the implant is an alternative to improve the shape and volume of the area.

Implants are made in various sizes and shape, Dr. Robles will help you decide which is the most convenient for your case.

What does the surgery consist of?

After Dr. Robles has approved the surgery and you are healthy you will be able to go into the operating room. Once in there, Dr. Robles will mark the areas where he will perform the incisions and take pictures to compare the results of the surgery.

After that, you will be anesthetized to begin the surgery. An incision will be made on the back part of the knee. Through this incision, the implant will be placed under the muscle or fascia. After this is done, Dr. Robles will stitch the incision. Even though the scar will be permanent, it will be easily hidden by the folds of the body and the will fade in time.

Recovery Time

Back to work in 2 weeks. Resume vigorous activities in 6 weeks.

Body Lift

What is a body lift?

A body lift is a surgical procedure aimed at correcting the excess of skin and the irregular shape of the abdominal area (including the sides and back), gluteus (which may look hanging or with an unwanted look), groin, thighs (inner or outer part, or even both) and arms.

This procedure improves the shape and tonicity of the underlying tissues that serves as support of the skin and fat. The excess of skin and fat is removed to improve the conditions that appear due to a poor elasticity of the tissues. Because of this, the treatment may improve the way a skin with cellulites looks.
The body lift is not the specific treatment used to remove excess skin. Liposuction can do that if the skin has a good elasticity and may get used to the new shape of the body. When the elasticity of the skin is poor, the lifting will be advised in addition to the liposuction.

Am I a good candidate?

This is an appropriate procedure for people with a steady and reasonable weight for their height and body build. The best candidates are those people who have realistic goals and wishes to improve their body shape, with good health and who do not have any kind of disease that may compromise their lives or the healing process. It is also very important that the patients do not smoke.

Recovery Time

Return to work in 3 to 6 weeks. Most normal activities can be resumed after 6 to 12 weeks.

What does the surgery consist of?

After the initial consult with Dr. Robles, and once you have authorized the surgery, you will be ready to go into the operating room. Dr. Robles will mark the areas of your body where he will perform the incisions. After that, he will take some pictures to be able to compare the results after the surgery.

After finishing this step, you will be sedated and anesthetized.

The surgery will be specifically designed for you, according to the regions that need to be treated. The body lift reduces the excessive amount of skin and gives a new shape to the areas treated. The type of incision will vary according the extent of the surgery, the patient’s body and any specifications that Dr. Robles decides.

One of the most common techniques for the body lift of the lower parts of the body uses incisions similar to those of the bikini pattern. In this way, the abdomen, waist, thighs and gluteus will be stretched. A circumferential incision around the body will remove the excess of fat and skin, and will reposition and stretch the tissues. A mix of liposuction and surgical body lifting will be needed to achieve a better shape of your body. The stitches which are supported internally with the underlying tissues will aid in giving your body its new shape. The incisions will be closed with stitches, skin adhesive, or clips.

If done in your arms, this procedure will improve the shape of them through incisions in the lower area of the arms.

The new shape of your body will be seen almost immediately after the surgery. Even though you will have bruises and swelling on the area. The quality of the skin will be improved drastically. Even though the incision lines will be permanent they can be easily hidden by the natural folds of the body.

Scar Removal - Scar Resection

What is a scar removal?

This is a surgical procedure through which the condition or appearance of a scar is improved.

There are several features of the scars that can be treated with surgical or non-surgical procedures (discoloration, irregular skin surface).

This type of surgery does not harm your health or bodily functions. These may be acne scars, or scars generated by minor injuries or previous surgeries.

Rolling scars are thin groups of scar tissue that develops on the area of the wound. They may grow with time; they may cause flushing of the skin and may become very uncomfortable. These may be hyper or hypo-pigmented.

Compressed scars are longer; these may inflict pain or give an itch in the area. They are located on the edges of the wound or incision. The may come up in any area of the body, but they usually appear where there are reduced adipose tissue such as the shoulders.
Contractures are scars that reduce the movement you are able to do due to the tension generated by the skin and other tissue during the healing. This may occur when there has been and extensive loss of tissue, such as after a burn.

The technique used by Dr. Robles will be determined by the kind of scar you have.

Recovery Time

Return to work within a week.

Am I a good candidate?

Scar removal may be performed on patients of any age. The best patients are those that are in good health, who don’t suffer from any medical condition that may endanger their lives or the healing process. They cannot have active acne or other pathologies on the area to be treated. Patients should not smoke. These patients should have a realistic and positive expectation to improve their looks.

Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty, Hymen Restoration

What is a surgery of the femenine genitals?

This is a surgical procedure that’s aimed at modifying certain features of the feminine genitals. Lots of women decide to get these surgeries to enhance or rejuvenate their external sexual organs, or even to improve their sexual experiences which may be harmed by physical imperfections.

What does the surgery consist of?

There are several techniques and procedures to improve different conditions by modifying the woman’s external sexual organs. After having an evaluation with Dr. Robles and setting the goals for the surgery, he will tell you which is the most appropriated for you.

One of these procedures is the vaginoplasty, which is aimed at improving the structure of the vulva, labia minora, labia majora, cleft of Venus, perineum, vaginal opening and hymen.

A laser reducing labiaplasty may sculpt the labia minora if they are too big or uneven. At the same time, some conditions that need a reconstruction due to aging, injuries or giving birth. Augmentation labiaplasty gives a youthful look and highlights the labia majora trough fat grafting to the area. The fat will be previously taken from a different part of the body with a liposuction. A laser perineoplasty will improve a perineum that’s been affected by aging. It will also improve how the labia minora and majora look, and the looks of the vulva.

Hymenoplasty is solely aimed at reconstructing the hymen.

Liposculpture may be used to reduce the cleft of Venus, or the labia majora, if they are prominent. Vulvar labiaplasty may remove fat from this area to provide a more beautiful shape.

At the same time, Dr. Robles may even consider doing more than one of the procedures at the same time.

Recovery Time

Back to work in 1 week.

Breast

Breast Reduction

What is a breast reduction?

The best candidates for the surgery are those women who have a relatively normal and stable weight, a good health, they cannot smoke and cannot have any diseases that may affect the healing process or risk their lives. It is also very important that they keep a positive mind and they should have specific objectives to improve their looks.

What does the surgery consist of?

Once you’ve decided you are going to do the surgery, and Dr. Robles has decided the way in which he is going to proceed, you will be ready to go into the operating room. Once in there, Dr. Robles will mark where he is going to do the incisions and take pictures in order to compare the results.

Breast reduction is usually performed through incision with a surgical removal of fat, glandular tissue and skin that’s making the breast have that pendulum shape. This technique, in addition to improve the size and shape of the breasts, will also reposition them and also reduce the size of the nipples and areolas which might have been enlarged because of the tensioned skin.

Breast reduction is sometimes done by removing excess fat using liposuction techniques; by removing the excess glandular tissue, skin and fat or by combining both techniques. One of the most common techniques needs an incision pattern that begins around the areola, then continues vertically below the breast and finally horizontally by the natural fold of the breast. After being removing the nipple, it is repositioned and the areola is reduced, as the lifting and remodeling are done. The stitches, skin adhesives and surgical bands for the skin will close the superficial incisions. Many of the incision lines will be easily hidden by the shape and folds of your body, however some of them will be visible. In spite of this, they will improve over time.

Male Breast Reduction - Gynecomastia

What is the male breast reduction - Gynecomastia?

The Gynecomastia is a condition in which a man’s breasts grow out of proportion with the rest of the male body. The surgery is a reducing mastoplasty, aimed at reducing the size, and shaping the man’s chest. In the most severe cases, it is possible that the weight of the excessive breast tissue stretches the areola. In these cases, the position, shape and size of the areola may be surgically improved, and the excess skin removed.

The male breast reduction may develop because of hormonal changes during adolescence or later, be hereditary or because of a disease such as obesity. Other possible causes are the excessive consumption of alcohol, cigarettes, steroids or drugs.

In the case of obese patients, the growth of the breast wouldn’t be Gynecomastia, since in most cases it is caused by the weight increase.

Gynecomastia is characterized by the excess of localized fat, a disproportionate growth of glandular tissue, or a combination of both.

The condition may develop in one or both of the breasts, and in some cases, it may be considered as reconstructive surgery.

Recovery Time

Back to work in 1 to 2 weeks. Strenous activity in 4 weeks.

Am I a good candidate?

When this is done, the patient will be sedated and locally anesthetized.

If the male breast reduction is caused by an excessive deposit of fat, the treatment will be done as a regular liposuction. A cannula is inserted through small incisions in the perimeter of the areola, the armpits or an area easy to hide, in order to remove the excess of fat.

Gynecomastia can also be treated by excision: the surgical removal of excess skin, tissue and fat. Incision patterns and location vary depending on the patient. The most common incision pattern is a concentric one around the areola or the natural shape of the chest. Excision techniques and concentric patterns are used when the areola has growth out of proportion and it must be reduced or repositioned.

In some cases, the male breast reduction can be treated with both techniques: liposuction and excision. Any surgical treatment to correct Gynecomastia will require incisions. While some of them may be hidden with the natural shape of the body, some will be visible.

Not every woman will need these incisions; in some cases a combination of them is needed. Both the combination and the extent of the incisions will depend on the amount and the quality of the skin to be removed.

Once the excess skin is removed, the breast tissue is modeled through lifting. The skin will be tightened as the incisions are closed. Some of the incision lines will be hidden by the natural shape of the breast though others will be visible on the skin. Although these scars are permanent, with time there will be a significant improvement, to the point of being almost invisible.

Incision patterns will depend on the kind of implant, the target size, the patient’s body and the doctor’s decision. Through the incision, the doctor will create a “pocket” whether behind the breast tissue, under the pectoral muscle, or the chest wall. The implant will be placed inside that pocket and the incision will be closed with non-removable or self absorbing stitches in the breast tissue, and adhesive stitches for the skin or taped shut.

Breast Reconstruction

What is the breast reconstruction?

Breast reconstruction is a surgery that is done through several procedures in order to restore the shape, look and size of a breast after a mastectomy.

Even though this procedure can actually rebuild the appearance of a normal breast, the results vary greatly. A reconstructed breast does not have the same sensitivity as the original one. Furthermore, the incision marks are visible, as well as those on the donor area in case the flaps technique had to be used.

Am I a good candidate?

The best candidates are those patients that are currently dealing with the diagnose and the treatment correctly, they must not have any other medical conditions that may endanger their health, they cannot smoke and they must have a positive and realistic prospect for the surgery.

Recovery Time

2 to 6 weeks.

What does the surgery consist of?

Once the technique has been decided by Dr. Robles, you will be ready to enter the operation room. Then Dr. Robles will mark the areas in which he’ll perform the surgery and take pictures to compare the results afterwards.

At this point, the doctor’s assisting team will sedate you and anesthetize you. After this the surgery will begin.

Since there are several techniques to perform a breast reconstruction, this is a highly personal choice; each procedure has its own advantages. The correct one for a patient depends on its anatomy, what Dr. Robles believes is best and the wishes of the patient.

The best sensitivity is achieved with the flap technique, and this procedure is necessary in those cases in which the tissue or muscle that remained after the mastectomy is too small. There will be incision lines both in the donor area as in the reconstructed one. Finally, there is a remote chance of a partial or total tissues loss due to poor healing.

In some cases the mastectomy has left enough tissue on the chest wall to cover and support a breast implant. Using a breast implant for the reconstruction needs almost always the use of the flap technique or tissue extension.

Reconstruction through tissue extension allows an easier recovery than the one with flap technique.
Breast reconstruction is harder through techniques that rebuild the nipple and the areola. The surgery can be done in a single time, or in several steps depending on which technique Dr. Robles thinks is the most appropriate and the treatment used to deal with the cancer. Complete reconstruction is usually done in a process which lasts several months.

The flap technique for transversal abdominal muscles uses as donor zone for muscle, fat and skin the patient’s abdomen for the breast reconstruction.

The Latissimus dorsi flap uses muscle, fat and skin making way under the back skin and tissue of the patient to the breast that must be reconstructed, which means that it remains linked to the donor area keeping the blood flow intact. In some cases, the flap may be used for a complete reconstruction, but the usual is that it provides muscle and tissue to support the breast implant.

The breast implant may be added or it may be an alternative technique to the flap. Reconstruction through breast implant only needs the extension of tissue.

The mix of medications used in mesotherapy dissolves the fat located below the tissue and reduces the amount of deep fat. Once the fat is dissolved, it is absorbed by the blood and transported to the kidneys for it to be evacuated.

The size of the area to infiltrate depends on the results that are being looked for and the evaluation done by Dr. Robles.

This is a quick and effective treatment which lasts 10 minutes. After Dr. Robles has performed the infiltration, the area will be put ice to avoid and excessive inflammation.

Tattoo Laser Removal

What is a tattoo removal?

Tattoo removal with laser is a highly effective, non-surgical procedure, which allows the removal of unwanted tattoos from your body. This treatment is done in several sessions, which obtains quick and satisfactory results without harming any adjacent tissue, only what you want.

What does this procedure consist of?

Technological advancements have allowed the construction of new laser equipment, such as the Q Switched Neodymium-YAG, which is mostly used to treat melanocitic, epidermal and dermal lesions as well as the removal o tattoos of any kind. The device transmits a beam of infrared light at 1.064 or 532 nm, towards the pigment without harming the skin.

The complete procedure is comprised of the previous disinfection of the skin, then local topical anesthesia which can be infiltrative or cryo-analgesic through a cold spray that temporarily reduces pain, and finally the laser treatment is done. The laser removes the ink thanks to the high energy light beam. The beam emits one or more light wavelengths, which are absorbed, reflected or the go through the surface they are pointed to.

The ink of the tattoos is removed by using a wavelength which is absorbed by it. This will cause the ink to be diluted and then flushed by the body naturally. The laser emits tiny flashes of light called pulses. The impact they cause is minimal, and most patients do not feel any pain at all during the treatment.

The amount of sessions needed to complete the treatment will depend on several factors. Some of them are the ink with which the tattoo was made and the depth of it. The sessions will be done every thirty days, unless told otherwise.

There are some colors that are more easily removed, and others which are more difficult. Colors on the ranges of blue, red and black are easy to remove; whereas those on the ranges of orange, green and yellow are more complicated.

Am I a good candidate?

A good candidate is a person who is in great health and is completely certain that he or she wants to proceed with the treatment, always having clear and realistic goals towards the improvement of their skin.
