Clinical picture:
Depressed scars are due to loss of skin, subcutaneous tissue, and often muscle and bone.

These scars can be caused by accidents on public roads, acts of violence or as a result of surgery. It is common to see depressed scars after a cesarean section and / or surgical interventions for peritoneal pictures.

Fat has little defense against infectious processes and when an infection occurs there is a loss of this tissue. The depressed scar is produced by the replacement of the tissue in that area with connective scar tissue.

Although scars cannot be completely removed, our surgical experience and the laser technology we have will allow us to help you improve the aesthetic and functional appearance of your scar.

Hace 2 semanas tuve la oportunidad de ser intervenida por segunda vez me realice un lift-endoscopy de frente y la primera vez fue en el 2019 fue una blefaroplastia me removieron la grasa de mis párpados. Debido a la pandemia apenas este año me fue posible regresar. La forma de trabajar del Dr. Hoogstra es increíble ! Quedas como si nada . No me dolió nada , ni un solo analgésico tome para el dolor , no tuve nada de dolor y la recuperación muy rápida . Vale la pena viajar desde Estados Unidos por segunda vez . Ya Que la seguridad de no correr ningún riesgo y de quedar bien es garantizada . Trate de llevar conmigo a una amiga que se quería hacer un lifting de cara y cuello y mi amiga no quiso ir , se fue a Cancún México , que porque era más económico para ella . La dejaron con parálisis facial todo el lado izquierdo de su cara . el Dr. Hoogstra te cuida y te trata como si tú fueras de su familia. Y su equipo de trabajo es fantástico . Chicas muy atentas . Josefina , lucia , José Luis , gracias , hasta la señora que le andaba llevando café a mi esposo. No recuerdo su nombre . Ella se encarga de atender a los familiares de los pacientes. Y me ayudo a vestirme. Muy agradecida con todos ustedes . Un consejo a todas las personas que quieren hacerse un embellecimiento facial . Por favor atiéndanle con un doctor que esté altamente capacitado. No es fácil viajar hasta Argentina desde Texas Estados Unidos. Pero el esfuerzo vale la pena ya que me puse en manos de una eminencia en cirugía Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra.🤗🤗🤗🤗

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty

I had a blepharoplasty on my upper eyelids. I must say that logically, prior to the decision to undergo this procedure, my concerns were heard and I slowly moved towards surgery at the hands of Dr. Hoogstra. The technique is excellent, I had no discomfort, meeting the pre and post surgical guidelines.

Eyelid surgery and liposuction

I had a blepharoplasty and it was excellent. Without scar and also the treatment of the super professional doctor. Then I came back for liposuction of the legs and abdomen and the results are also wonderful. Everything is quality and super professional. The doctor always takes away your doubts and the post operative was very easy to carry. I will always come back!

A Great Experience !!

I am from Fort Worth, Texas and am 53 years old. For many years I wanted to remove the bags from my lower eyelids, a more youthful look and remove the dewlap, but I was scared by traditional surgeries that remove skin and can change the natural look of the face. After searching and searching for alternatives I was lucky

Laser eyelid surgery

The surgery was fantastic. The postoperative was more complicated for me because I did not rest any, I moved as if I had nothing, that made recovery take a little longer but it was perfect. All people tell me how well you have eyes! how good are you! and I see them much better.

Dr. Hoogstra only performed laser on my upper and lower eyelids. I don't have surgery. They gave me anesthetic cream an hour before. I only felt a little discomfort during the treatment, then a little burning. I returned to my activities after four days. Notice more softness, smoothness and a fresh skin feeling. I use less

CO2 laser on the eyelids

I want to leave my opinion because when something goes well you also have to say it. In my case, the dr performed a CO2 laser on my eyelids without blepharoplasty, because I have little fat on my eyelids but they already looked tired and droopy. The treatment lasted 3 minutes at most, and after which for 2
