Procedures: Breasts, Abdomen, Face



Beauty standards vary greatly from one person to another, and from one culture to another. However, breasts have consistently been associated with female beauty across the board. There is no perfect size for breasts, and every woman is different. Furthermore, when the breasts are too large there are health risks involved, including back and neck problems, and numbness in arms and hands, among others. Thankfully, nowadays every woman has the right and the opportunity to feel comfortable with her body, with medical and aesthetic procedures that allow for important changes.

The plastic surgery procedures performed by Dr. Rodriguez Balasquide correct conditions and situations such as:
  • Small breasts
  • Mastopexy
  • Large breasts
  • Asymmetrical Breasts (breasts of different sizes)
  • Tuberous Breasts (tubular form)
  • Inverted Nipple
  • Reconstruction after a mastectomy



The abdominal area is an important part of human aesthetics. It is the line that defines the upper body from the lower body, and its shape helps differentiate males from females. However, it is one of the most difficult areas to maintain in good shape. Even though eating habits and exercise play an important role in the abdomen's appearance, there are factors like pregnancy, rapid weight loss, and elasticity loss of the muscles and/or skin that can cause the abdomen to appear flaccid and low.

Dr. Rodriguez-Balasquide performs a thorough examination, and will help you decide what it is you want to change in your abdominal area and how it can be achieved.

The face is the first feature we see in others. We look at each other's eyes when we talk, but we always look at the whole face also, because facial expressions are an integral part of the human language. Therefore, our face and neck are our presentation cards.

Even if we are very careful about the care of our skin, there are factors like age, the environment, the sun, and the products we use throughout our lives that can negatively affect our appearance. There are also sensitive areas like eyelids, expression lines, and lips, that can deteriorate with time. Dr. Rodriguez-Balasquide has ample experience in facial cosmetic surgery, and can help you find the procedure or treatment that best suits your needs.
