Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

Facial reconstruction is quite rewarding and looking after children with cleft lip and palate always puts a smile on his face.

His experience in Craniofacial and Cleft Surgery are assets when performing Facial Surgery (Facelift, Eyelids, Otoplasty) and Rhinoplasty (functional and cosmetic).

Dr Rodrigo is also active in other areas of plastic surgery, such as Fat Grafting, Breast Augmentation (Implants and Lipo-modelling), Breast Lift (mastopexy), Liposuction and Abdominoplasty.

The 24th Advanced Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Workshop comes to an end. Over the last 2 1/2 days we had great talks from national and international faculty. For me it was revealing to see a common trait shared by world experts in Plastic Surgery: no matter how good they are, they are always willing to improve and refine their skills. It is obvious to me that good surgeons remain critical and accept criticism of their work and they put a lot of thought in what they do. Another great workshop!
