Plastic Surgery In Guatemala


Breast augmentation in Guatemala is the operation designed to ensure the increase or reduction in the size of the breast, giving it firmness, tone, and a more harmonious, symmetrical, and proportionate shape to the rest of your body.


In the case of breast augmentation, the operation involves the insertion of silicone implants in the sub-glandular or sub-muscular site. For their insertion and positioning, incisions in different strategic locations may be necessary.


Let's remember first of all the breast augmentation with inframammary access in Guatemala.


With this technique, a horizontal incision is made just below the inframammary sulcus. The technique facilitates the positioning of the prosthesis and at the same time allows to hide the incision that will be obscured by the natural crease of the breast.


The areolar technique instead involves an incision on the lower edge of the areola. Also in this case the scar will be barely visible.


Breast augmentation with axillary access is practiced in patients with rather small breasts because in the absence of an evident sub-mammary groove or a small nipple the incisions would be too evident. With this technique, however, the scars will be hidden inside the axillary cavity.


For breast reduction, the surgical technique is established in relation to the size and type of the patient's breast. Breast reduction in fact involves the removal of excess glandular tissue by making special incisions.


A distinction is made between periareolar incisions if made around the areoles and periareolar incisions with the vertical cut if the surgeon deems a further incision necessary up to the inframammary sulcus. Another technique is the upside-down L or T incision. 


It is defined as an L when the surgeon makes an incision starting from the areolae and continuing first vertically to the inframammary sulcus and then with a small horizontal incision on one side. The inverted T incision is similar to the L incision but in addition, an extension of the incision horizontally versus lateral to the L.




Recent developments in the medical field have led to the formulation of a new botulinum infiltration technique with countless advantages. 


The fantastic results of the Smart botulinum, also published in the Journal of Advanced Plastic Surgery Research, are closely linked to the new combination of the substance with lidocaine, an anesthetic capable of simulating the effects of botulinum toxin.


The latter, in fact, offers the possibility to see, after a few minutes from the injection, the effects of Botox, usually visible only after about 5 days, thus revolutionizing the classic anti-aging treatment of Botox. Lidocaine, in addition to making the treatment totally painless for the patient, simulates the final results of treatment with Botox, showing its advantages for a duration of up to 30 minutes".


Furthermore, by combining botulinum toxin with lidocaine, it is possible for the doctor to realize during the session itself, that the presence or absence of any asymmetries to be corrected, immediately resolving imperfections that would otherwise be corrected only after 5 or 6 days. In fact, in standard treatment, Botox is normally mixed with a simple physiological solution that does not have the same potential as the anesthetic substance.


However, it is always important that the treatment is always carried out by a specialized and competent doctor, as, the surgeons remember, doubling the dilution increases the likelihood that Botox spreads in an unwanted way, causing problems. It is fundamental to rely on an operator who knows best the musculature of the anatomical area where he makes the infiltrations.




A rather common cosmetic defect among both adults and children is the well-known "protruding ears", also referred to in the medical field as snare ears. This is a particular structural imperfection of the auricle which appears to be characterized by an excessive protrusion on the top. But not only. It is a hypertrophy of the auricle accompanied in some cases by the absence of the fold of the ear or the antihelix.


To correct this common defect, the aesthetic intervention that is used, both in childhood and in adulthood, is otoplasty.


Beyond the intended surgical technique, what has often been considered a nuisance for many patients are dressings.


In fact, as a rule, at the end of the operation, a particular rather conspicuous protective dressing is envisaged due to its particular “turban” shape that the patient must wear for about a week. In reality today it is possible to reduce the residence times of the bandage, thanks to an alternative dressing.


It is a peculiar type of dressing that at the end of the otoplasty is sutured directly to the ears, favoring a wider and safer post-operative recovery. The latter, in fact, allows reducing the time of use of the turban from 7 days to only 48 hours. But not only! By using this alternative dressing, the residence times of the subsequent protective bandage, similar to the tennis band, are also halved. 


In fact, for a standard otoplasty, the latter must be worn 24 hours a day while thanks to the new dressing, it is possible to limit its use only to night hours.


In this way, a quicker and easier post-operative procedure is ensured.
