Wrinkles, a natural part of aging, are most prominent on sun-exposed skin, such as the face, neck, hands and forearms.

Rosacea and Facial Vessels
Rosacea is a common skin disease. It often begins with a tendency to blush or flush more easily than other people. The redness can slowly spread beyond the nose and cheeks to the forehead and chin. Even the ears, chest, and back can be red all the time.

Aging and Sun Damaged Skin
Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises, wrinkles and tears more easily — taking longer to heal.

Dr. Mendieta takes the whole body into account before reshaping the buttocks, as he will fully evaluate where and how the buttocks can be enhanced in relation to the rest of the individual’s body.
