Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery

It is a medical specialty that, as its name indicates, comprises two main areas, aesthetics and reconstructive:

The reconstructive branch focuses on restoring different parts of the body after accidents, surgeries, diseases or degenerative processes that have decreased its functionality and the patient's quality of life. For example: if after a car accident a person fractures his nose, making it difficult for him to breathe, and he undergoes surgery, it would be reconstructive surgery.


Cosmetic surgery on the other hand is in order to modify the physical appearance of the patient, reverse the changes of aging or congenital nature and in some cases help improve the patient's self-esteem. For example: if a person does not like the appearance of their nose despite the fact that it is functional and is modified with surgery, it would be aesthetic.

In some cases both branches can be combined.


Some of the procedures included in this field are:


  • Facelift

  • Blepharoplasty or lifting of droopy eyelids

  • Facial filler

  • Skin grafts for wounds and scars

  • Ear restoration

  • Nose restoration and reconstruction

  • Gluteal implant placement
