Face and Neck
Dr. Cabrera Overview of Facial Rejuvenation
» Facelift (Rhytidectomy)
Removal of excess facial fat, tightening of facial muscles and stretching of facial skin to restore a smoother, firmer facial appearance. The skin is separated from the fat and muscle and the fat is trimmed or suctioned to improve the contour.
» Necklift (Plastysmaplasty)
Frequently performed in conjunction with a facelift, the neck skin is raised and tightened through the facelift incisions around the ears and excess fat is removed through a small incision under the chin.
» Forehead Lift (Browlift)
The muscles and tissues that cause furrowing, drooping and frown lines are removed or altered. Usually performed with the use of an endoscope, a viewing instrument that allows the procedure to be performed with 3-5 minimal incisions.
» Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Excess fat, muscle and loose skin are removed from the upper and lower eyelids. Fine sutures, strategically placed, close the incisions and minimize visible scars. Improves puffiness and bags under the eyes and can correct vision impairment caused by droopy eyelids.
» One-Incision Necklift
Men are especially good candidates for this procedure. Incision placement, recovery time, and disruption of hairline are all important factors for men considering a necklift operation. Dr. Cabrera’s One Incision Necklift makes all of these concerns obsolete. This procedure literally reverses the effects of time and gravity, using state-of-the-art surgical techniques. Through just one hidden incision, this procedure banishes a heavy neck or “turkey gobbler”. The One Incision Necklift is performed in one of our four fully accredited and licensed operating rooms and requires only local anesthesia. No overnight stay is required. Recovery can be complete within 7 to 10 days.
The SmarterLift™ is a revolutionary facial plastic surgery procedure that can help patients get results similar to facelift or neck lift surgery, without the extensive recovery period. The procedure takes about two hours to perform and doesn’t require an overnight hospital stay. This is ideal for patients who want to achieve that youthful boost, but don’t have the time for downtime.

A Minimally Invasive Contouring Procedure
The iGuide® is a minimally invasive procedure that gives you maximum results. It’s the simple way to have a younger-looking, beautifully contoured neckline. The iGuide® Surgical Suture System offers an unprecedented, minimally invasive technique that can be performed without general anesthesia and with minimal incisions, giving you all the benefits of a necklift, without the telltale scarring.
The iGuide® can be used to oversew the muscles of the neck, or elevate the brow using the patented instrument system, with minimal incisions. Featuring five remarkable tools, iGuide® allows for the placement of a suture support system through a series of needle punctures. Instead of cutting and repositioning the muscles and other structures, the surgeon weaves the suture underneath the jaw line with one continuous thread.In properly selected patients iGuide® provides a technique to improve the neck and jawline with minimal incisions as compared to traditional techniques – with minimal swelling, bruising, and scarring.
» Permanent Lip Augmentation
Dermal fat transplant is the safe, definitive solution for permanent lip augmentation. Fat is injected into the lip to produce a natural contour.
