Elastic rhinoplasty with the elastic thread

46. Elastic Rhinoplasty

A long nose can be shortened and the tip reshaped by implanting an elastic thread through a 2 mm incision.
Elastic lifting of the nose has not only an esthetic objective, but also a functional purpose. Indeed, by correcting the nasolabial angle, this procedure improves the patient's breathing. The indication for this simple procedure is established during the preoperative examination. The nose-tip is pinched between two fingers and is drawn backwards and upwards; if it is raised easily, the elastic thread can be implanted.
The result is optimal and stable over time.

Elastic Lifting of the Nose with thread news

47. Elastic Lifting of the Upper Lip with three threads

A long upper lip is an esthetic defect of familial origin. If the lip is not excessively long, it can be lifted by means of two or three elastic threads in order to reduce its length.
The preoperative design is drawn from the wing of the nose to the contralateral margin of the columella. From here, it descends obliquely to the extremity of cupid's bow, follows the edge of the vermilion border and then travels back up to the wing of the nose. This design is reproduced on the contralateral portion of the lip. The pathway of a third elastic thread, extending halfway down the lip, is then drawn. Regional anesthesia is carried out.

Elastic Masthopexy

48. Mastopexy of drooping breasts with silicone implants, by means of two tiny incisions and elastic threads

Today, the appearance of breasts that have silicone implants can be improved through a single 8 mm incision in the areolar margin. Simply by encircling the areola with an elastic thread, which is mounted on a two-tipped Jano needle, we can conize the breast, reposition the implant in contact with the chest wall, reduce the diameter of the areola or make it symmetrical, and lift the breast by a few centimeters. By means of a second, 2 mm long, incision in the axillary column, mastopexy of breasts with silicone implants can also be carried out.
This ambulatory Elastic Plastic Surgery procedure can be used both to give normal breasts a more natural look and to correct the so-called “ball-in-a-sock" appearance of larger breasts.

Elastic Plastic Surgery

Elastic Plastic Surgery revolutionizes Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery.
The numerous applications of Elastic Plastic Surgery range from large scar revision to Face-lifting, MACS lift, Neck lift, Gluteoplasty, Mastopexy, etc. Elastic Plastic Surgery, requires little or no dissection and is of lasting efficacy.

Phlebotherapy (TRAP)

Three-dimensional Regenerative Ambulatory Phlebotherapy is a new functional and aesthetic treatment for varicose disease that revolutionizes current phlebological therapies. TRAP is able to resolve any case of varicose veins and/or telangiectasias of the lower limbs.


Adipofilling is a new inexpensive method of preparing and transferring adipose tissue. The suspension of adipocytes and stromal cells can be injected by an ordinary syringe needle in order to correct both deep and extremely superficial volume deficits. The results are free from artifacts and stable over time. Another very important application is in Regenerative Medicine.
The lobular fragments and cellular suspension produced by the Adipopimer have the characteristic of not freezing at 21°C, and can be stored in 1ml or 2.5ml syringes to be injected in the following months.


Timedsurgery enables over 70 standardized innovative techniques to be performed,eg: slow pulsed cutting, Electroporo Cosmesis, pulsed timedsurgical de-epithelialisation, mixed timedsurgical peeling, removal of lip wrinkles, elimination of skin hyperpigmentations, re-pigmentation of stable vitiligo, Adipolysis, Blephaplasty without skin incisions, etc...
