Unraveling the Science of Aesthetic Medicine: Understanding Plastic Surgery Procedures


The world of aesthetic medicine is ever-evolving, with groundbreaking advances in technology and medical techniques that lead to better, safer, and more efficient plastic surgery procedures. A better understanding of the science behind these techniques can offer insight into how they create stunning results while reducing risks and ensuring patient safety. At Fibonacci, Dr. Rigoberto Castellanos and his skilled team utilize the latest advancements in the field to provide exceptional results and patient care.

In this blog post, we will explore the scientific principles and techniques behind various commonly performed plastic and aesthetic procedures at Fibonacci. By delving into key concepts such as skin resurfacing, minimally invasive treatments, and surgical rejuvenation techniques, you will obtain a deeper understanding of how these procedures work and how they can enhance your appearance. This knowledge will empower you to make informed decisions regarding your aesthetic journey at Fibonacci.

Skin Resurfacing: Uncovering a More Youthful Complexion

Skin resurfacing treatments work to improve the texture, tone, and overall appearance of the skin by removing the outermost damaged layers and revealing the healthier layers beneath. At Fibonacci, we offer multiple skin resurfacing techniques, each employing a different scientific approach:

  1. Chemical Peels: Chemical peels use varying strengths of acids, such as glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid, to dissolve and remove the outer layer of damaged skin in a controlled manner. During the healing process, new, healthier skin is generated, providing a refreshed, youthful appearance.
  2. Laser Resurfacing: This technique utilizes innovative laser technology to deliver short, concentrated beams of light that remove damaged skin cells, layer by layer. In addition, the laser energy can stimulate collagen production, further enhancing the skin’s overall quality and texture.

Understanding the science behind skin resurfacing treatments can help you determine the most appropriate option for your individual skin concerns.

Minimally Invasive Treatments: Boosting Your Appearance with Reduced Downtime

Minimally invasive treatments have been steadily growing in popularity due to their ability to provide significant aesthetic improvements with reduced risks, recovery times, and discomfort compared to traditional surgical procedures. A few minimally invasive techniques commonly performed at Fibonacci include:

  1. Botox: Botox is a neurotoxic protein that, when injected into facial muscles, temporarily paralyzes them, leading to a reduction of dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead creases, and frown lines. The science behind Botox lies in its ability to block the nerve signals responsible for muscle contractions, giving the skin a smoother, rejuvenated look.
  2. Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers are gel-like substances, often containing hyaluronic acid, that are injected into the skin to add volume and soften the appearance of static wrinkles, lines, or facial hollows. These fillers work by attracting and retaining moisture to provide immediate, natural-looking results with minimal downtime.
  3. Kybella: Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment that targets and eliminates submental fat, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” Its active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, breaks down fat cells upon injection, which are then naturally cleared by the body’s lymphatic system.

Each of these minimally invasive techniques employs cutting-edge science to enhance your appearance with reduced invasiveness and recovery times.

Surgical Rejuvenation Techniques: Long-Lasting Transformations

For patients seeking more significant aesthetic changes or long-lasting results, surgical rejuvenation techniques offer a comprehensive approach. The scientific principles behind some of the most popular surgical procedures at Fibonacci include:

  1. Facelift Surgery: A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address multiple signs of aging in the mid to lower face and neck. During the surgery, excess fat and skin are removed, and the underlying facial structures are repositioned to restore a more youthful appearance. The science behind a facelift lies in the careful manipulation of the skin, muscles, and connective tissues to achieve a natural-looking rejuvenation.
  2. Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, involves altering the bone, cartilage, and/or soft tissues of the nose to achieve a balanced and harmonious facial appearance. Utilizing advanced surgical techniques and an understanding of facial proportions, Dr. Castellanos can expertly reshape the nose to enhance your overall appearance.

Achieving Natural-Looking Results with Advanced Techniques

At Fibonacci, we emphasize the use of advanced techniques and technologies to provide natural-looking, long-lasting results. Some key concepts that contribute to achieving natural-looking outcomes include:

  1. Harmonizing Facial Proportions: A deep understanding of facial proportions and aesthetics is essential for creating results that enhance your unique features while maintaining harmony and balance.
  2. Protecting and Stimulating Collagen: The health of your skin’s collagen, the primary structural protein responsible for its elasticity and firmness, is crucial for achieving optimal rejuvenation results. Advanced treatments focus on minimizing damage to existing collagen while also stimulating new collagen growth.
  3. Comprehensive Patient Evaluations: Performing thorough patient evaluations allows our team to create tailored treatment plans that address the specific needs and goals of each individual, ensuring that your aesthetic journey at Fibonacci is customized to deliver the best possible results.

By embracing the science of aesthetic medicine and employing state-of-the-art techniques, Dr. Castellanos and the team at Fibonacci are devoted to enhancing your appearance while ensuring the utmost safety and satisfaction.
