    The Lockwood technique minimizes tissue trauma and preserves crucial blood supply. Dr. Rodriguez explains and illustrates why this tummy tuck method not only accelerates healing, but also reduces the risk of complications like wound separation and seromas as well as optimized liposuction outcomes.

    This African American lip lift patient requested the remaining distance between the bottom of the nose and the top of the upper lip to be 8mm, shorter than the average 12 to 15 mm, but it totally works for her. See her progression from surgery day pre-op markings through her 1-week and 2-week post-op visits.

    If you’re considering a lip lift, be sure to check out our procedure information, before and after photos, as well as reviews from patients and articles I’ve written on the subject.

  • Browlift & Liplift Patient Follow Up

    This patient came to me concerned about her heavy eyelids infringing on her eyelashes. While she was thinking an eyelid lift, she ended up choosing an endoscopic browlift, which sometimes is a better option to rejuvenate and refresh the eye area. Learn more about there here. She’s also had a lip lift to address her upper lip getting “thinner” with age. The results are a very marked change in her appearance and she’s happy with the results!

  • Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Follow Up
