The breast lift without implants, a challenge surgery

Breasts are a symbol of beauty, female identity and sexuality. Over the years and especially after pregnancy and lactation, these important attributes of women tend to sag, lose shape and firmness. Fortunately, there is a surgery that can raise, correct flaccidity and reshape the female breast:

The breast lift without implants

There are many reasons why breast may fall or get flabby. For example, the normal aging process, gain or loss of body weight, the processes associated with motherhood, genetic factors, or just the action of gravity force. They directly affect the appearance of breast, which loses tone and “down” from its initial position.

To relocate breasts in the middle of the chest and sculpt their physiognomy we suggest the breast lift without implants. This is a surgical procedure designed to reshape your breast and reform the changes made in the areola and nipple.

The breast lift without implants, the procedure

 In our clinic My Cosmetic Surgery this procedure is performed by specialists Dr.JeffreyLaGrasso M.D. Dr.Jose Zayas MD
and Dr. Aristides Martinez AACS. They all are well experienced in providing cosmetic and aesthetic medical services.

There are different techniques to perform this surgery, which are used depending on breast size, age of the patient and her state of health, among other features. Also, surgical incisions vary depending on the case. You can make cuts around the areola, below it and to the level of the crease underneath the breast. The greater the fall of breast, the greater will be the scars needed to shape the chest and take the remaining skin.

Through these incisions we make the breast lift without implants, which consists of relocate and anchor the breast tissue, the relocation of the areola and nipple to the appropriate height and the removal of surplus tissue at the bottom of the breast. Surgery may also reduce the size of the areola in case it is very large.

This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and it lasts from one hour and a half to three hours and a half. After surgery, it is recommended to use an elasticized brassiere every day, for a month. The patient could retake her routine in 8 or 10 days. She has to avoid efforts arms. During the first month, she should avoid sports activities.

The final result of a breast lift without implants will be noticeable few months after surgery. The scars are more or less extensive depending on the technique used but they become invisible over time. Although they are durable, breast lift effects are not permanent because there are many factors that can affect them, for instance, pregnancy and weight fluctuations.


Techniques for facial hair removal

Facial Hair Removal

Facial hair although it has become fashionable in men, especially hipsters and millennials, is a nightmare for women. Encountering a mirror somewhere and realize you have a mustache, or hairs on the chin, can be quite a traumatic experience, and the girls who have experienced this situation will know what I mean. Eyebrows, which of course fall within the definition of “facial hair” do not pose a big problem because all we have adapted to pluck generally with tweezers or depilatory wax. But what to do with the rest of facial hair, so persistent and unaesthetic? Well, girls, My Cosmetic Surgery brings a number of tips and procedures for removal of facial hair, because her beauty and wellness interests us. It should be said, first, that the excessive appearance of facial hair can be due to hormonal changes so if you consider the amount of hair on your face is not acceptable, you should see a doctor to rule out any hormonal alteration. If your facial hair is only an aesthetic problem, here you have a number of procedures that you may find useful.

This ancient technique has been popular for some time and can be effective with weak and occasional facial hair. Also commonly used for hair removal of the eyebrows. It is a good technique in the short term but does not prevent the appearance of new hair. It is not a painful technique and can be found in almost all cosmetic centers Miami.


It is one of the most famous depilatory, especially the female mustache or upper lip hair (mustache that we do not like much) techniques. The double standards of this technique is to be done in specialized centers and not on our own, to avoid bad choice of products and irritation in the skin of the face, which is one of the most delicate of our body. This technique, well done, you get excellent results with hair removal. The disadvantages that flow from it are possible irritations and also prevents recurrence of hair.

Facial hair Removal With Pulsed Light or Laser Technology

This technique falls within the so-called “permanent solutions” since not only remove facial hair at the time but slow comeback. Hair removal pulsed light or laser technology weakens the hair follicle directly from the root. It is a treatment that requires several sessions but after a couple of sessions the appearance of the hair is reduced by up to 80 percent. As the sessions progress, less hair will come back. It is ideal for light-skinned people with dark hair technique. Still, laser technology has developed numerous techniques and types so if consultations a professional, no doubt, find a laser that suits your skin. The drawback? It is a little more expensive than previous procedures but, after all, offers more effective long-term results and provides brightness and smoothness to the skin.


This procedure is quite similar to laser hair removal. Also attacks the reappearance of hair removing it from its root. This treatment, although novel, FDA is also certified for use in the United States. This procedure involves introducing a fine needle into the skin to destroy cells that cause hair growth. This technique, as lasers, have different types. We recommend galvanic electrolysis as it can be performed on all skin types. If you choose this procedure or laser hair removal, you should be aware that it is not recommended that you apply makeup or cosmetic product on the treated area within 24 hours. Do not expose the skin to sunlight; Always use a protector.

Varicose veins treatments

Sea salt against varicose veins in Miami

Sea salt against varicose veins is one of the methods that we could put into action after completing treatment with injections. Specialists from My Cosmetic Surgery recommend it to remove “spider veins” or varicose veins that bother mainly women. Injections contain a percentage of saline injection that allows removing them, but to make this treatment more effective we recommend this procedure using sea salt.

This treatment based on sea salt against varicose veins can be followed twice a week. What we do is to prepare a detoxifying bath where, in addition, we will benefit from other elements as essential oils and magnesium sulfate, ideal to open the pores of the skin, detoxify and provide adequate nutrients to support the balance of our tissues.

Sea sand and sea salt are two natural exfoliating products that are recommended for treating cellulitis. An excellent practice to alleviate this problem is simply to go regularly to the beach or the rocks, sit on the sand and do soft massages on the area with sand and salt water.

How to prepare sea salt against varicose veins?

You can prepare this bath once or twice a week. You will have to find a free time of at least half an hour, so you can relax and take advantage of these natural elements. You can include in this bath all natural oils you want. We recommend cypress oil. This is a very effective natural anti-inflammatory that will help to reduce these fat nodules that cause cellulite. This oil can be found in stores of special products or specialized perfumeries.

All ingredients should be mixed in a bow: salt, bicarbonate, magnesium sulfate and essential oils by stirring them well with a wooden spoon. You do not have to add water.

Sea salt against varicose veins in your bathroom:

The second step is simple, we must add this preparation in the tub or shower, which you have previously filled with hot water. Then, with the other half and a sponge you should do a massage on your thighs or on the area affected by cellulitis. This massage must be energetic to reactivate blood circulation and to ensure that all elements penetrate our skin. Once we finish this massage we can immerse ourselves in the tub for at least 35 minutes.

Then we can dry normally. If we perform this procedure every week after injections, sea salt against varicose veins will undoubtedly be well effective.


Do you really know what rhinoseptoplasty is?

Do you really know what rhinoseptoplasty is?

Rhinoplasty is the surgical procedure that allows you to modify and improve the shape and size of the nose. But do we know what rhinoseptoplasty is? Many people seek help on this surgery for the correction of the nose and not only for aesthetic but also functional issues. The rhinoseptoplasty corresponds to a specific term that tries to say that rhinoplasty will focus specifically on correcting deviations or modifications of the nasal septum.

The nasal septum is the vertical wall that separates the nostrils and sometimes can present deviations that besides causing aesthetic problems can cause respiratory problems hindering the air outlet by the nasal passage. This can force the patient to breathe through the mouth and present periods of snoring, dry throat, among other annoyances. What rhinoseptoplasty makes is to correct deviations of the nasal septum so that the patient can breathe easily and also improve their appearance by having a proportionate and symmetrical nose with the rest of the facial features. This surgery can be done together with other own rhinoplasty procedures such as reduction of the nostrils.

Who is the perfect patient for a rhinoseptoplasty?

The ideal patient must be a person in good overall health. The ideal candidate is someone who wants a correction surgery of the nasal septum to fix its position. It is important that the patient that will undergo a rhinoseptoplasty know all the risks that may arise from this surgery. Patients should always follow the recommendations of their surgeon to eliminate the possibility of these risks.

What recommendations should follow a patient before surgery?

The patient should not take aspirin, ibuprofen or any medication that changes the clotting ability of the blood in the body. You must inform the surgeon about any medications you are taking and any supplement or syrup, including those obtained without a prescription. The doctor-patient communication is essential so that the surgeon should know if the patient is allergic to any medications or had any major illness. If the patient is a smoker, you should quit, usually a month before the surgery.

What can you expect from rhinoseptoplasty?

This surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on the characteristics of each patient and surgeon preference. Incisions are made inside the nostrils so the patient won’t have visible scars. Once the surgeon has made the incision he will proceed to correct deviations of the septum to saturate later. After this surgery you can expect a nose with a straight nasal septum in the correct position. From that moment on you will improve not only your image but also your respiratory capabilities.

How is postoperative?

It is normal after a rhinoseptoplasty that the surgeon leaves a bandage on the patient´s nose which may include plugs in the nostrils. This bandage will be removed three days after the surgery. It is common to experience swelling and moderate pain that should be treated with painkillers.

It is advisable not lower the position of the head during the first seven days for avoiding nasal bleeding. After seven days, the patient will be able to resume their daily activities but it is important to avoid the use of force or sudden physical movements. The discomfort and swelling will subside gradually as the days pass. The result can be seen from start to reduce inflammation, but it will be seen in full at the end of a month when the wound is totally healed.
