Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

Mr Teixeira finds facial reconstruction quite rewarding and looking after children with cleft lip and palate always puts a smile on his face. He believes that aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery are inseparable and his experience in Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery are valuable assets when performing Aesthetic Facial Surgery and Rhinoplasty.

Other areas of interest include breast surgery and body contouring. He is also interested in new concepts and technologies in Plastic Surgery, such as: the use of fat grafting in composite facial and breast surgery as well as high definition body sculpting.

Mr Teixeira is committed to continuous education and skill development. He routinely participates in the main conferences and symposiums in Plastic Surgery.
