“…..I’m deeply convinced that in our 45-55 yrs old patients, the center of the face is the more involved area in facial aging; the endoscopic procedure addresses to reposition the tissue in the center of the face, not pulling the skin laterally but repositioning the tissue following vertical vectors by a minimal incisions procedure.

The descent of tissue is only one of the factors involved in the facial aging; the other two most important factors are loss of volume and skin aging: since the 2004, I have been performing fat graft in all my facial rejuvenation procedures and it improved both the volume of the face and the quality of the skin. In the last 6 years I changed my technique of fat grafting aiming to increase the benefit of the ADSC in order to achieve not only a volume restoration but also a tissue regeneration….”
