Because there are different surgical and non-surgical techniques that will be used, each patient’s course of treatment will vastly differ.
This ranges from the non-invasive, such as fillers, to the more extensive procedures involving incisions and removal of skin, fat, and other tissue. Because multiple procedures usually occur during surgical facial rejuvenation, you will be placed under local and/or twilight sedation. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz does not use general anesthesia for facial surgery, which means bruising, swelling and recovery times are substantially minimized.
Learn more about the benefits of Twilight Sedation during your facial surgery with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz. Once Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz has finished, you will recover in his state-of-the-art accredited surgery center and be monitored to make sure there are no complications. This will also allow you time to come out of sedation. This is still considered outpatient surgery in most cases.
It’s important to understand that facelifts do not address the upper third of the face or surface skin concerns such as sun damage. For the most comprehensive facial rejuvenation, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz may suggest additional procedures such as blepharoplasty or a browlift (which can be performed at the same time as a facelift), as well as skin resurfacing, medical facials, and a personalized at-home skincare regimen. There are several different procedures that can be combined with your facial rejuvenation. After an in-depth consultation with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz, he may suggest a combination of the following procedures to achieve your desired results.
The eyes are often the first area of the face to show visible signs of aging, and eyelid surgery can improve a wide array of concerns ranging from excess eyelid skin to dark circles, under-eye hollows, and more.
The loss of facial fat is a natural part of the aging process, but fat grafting can restore volume to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, chin, and beneath the eyes. Most often performed to complement other surgical facial rejuvenation procedures, a patient’s own fat is harvested from the abdomen or inner thighs and mixed with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to maximize survival without increasing recovery time.
The upper portion of the face is prone to myriad age-related changes such as drooping eyebrows and deep forehead furrows. This targeted surgical procedure uses small incisions within the hairline to elevate the brows and restore them to a more youthful position.
To look its best at any age, the skin requires regular professional maintenance in the form of medical facials. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz’s on-staff aesthetician customizes each and every facial treatment to address the patient’s skin’s needs at that specific point in time. From hormonal fluctuations to seasonal skin changes, regular treatments ensure the skin always looks and feels its best.
The proper at-home skincare regimen is essential for maintaining the skin’s overall health and youthfulness, as well as post-surgical outcomes. Offering professional-grade skin care as well as prescription-based topical medications including SkinCeuticals and SOLESTICA, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz can create a comprehensive skincare regimen that addresses and improves each patient’s unique skin concerns.

Non-surgical Facial Contouring: These procedures involve using dermal fillers (such as uvéderm®, Restylane® or Sculptra®) to restore fullness to your temples, midface, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lips. Additionally, wrinkle relaxers such as Botox® can be used to provide a slight lift to the brow and lessen wrinkles around the eyes.
Although there are subtle differences between these wrinkle-smoothing injectables, they all help minimize the muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles due to facial expressions. Especially effective for smoothing lines on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes, neurotoxin injections can help delay the need for more invasive procedures and help maintain their results.
This innovative combination of cold helium plasma and radiofrequency is precisely delivered just beneath the skin’s surface to help tighten and rejuvenate the lower face and neck without visible incisions or significant recovery time. This technology can also be used at the time of facial rejuvenation surgery to further optimize final outcomes.
This procedure involves fat transfer from one part of the body to your face via injections. This restores volume to your face, which reduces wrinkles and hollowness under your eyes, cheekbones, and around the mouth.
Whether used on their own or in conjunction with surgery, injectable fillers play a vital role in facial rejuvenation. Ideal for restoring volume beneath the eyes and in the mid-face, or enhancing targeted areas such as the lips, jawline and beyond, options include hyaluronic acid-based fillers (such as the Juvéderm® and Restylane® families of products as well as Revanesse® Versa™), Radiesse® and Sculptra®. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz has extensive experience using all of the latest FDA-approved products as well as the most advanced injection techniques, so he can recommend the ideal treatment for each patient’s unique concerns and goals.
The appearance of the skin’s surface plays a major role in its perceived age, and there are several non-invasive treatments that can help restore smooth, soft, radiant skin. From Co2 laser treatments and chemical peels to microneedling with or without platelet-rich plasma (PRP), Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz can suggest the ideal skin resurfacing for visible facial rejuvenation either as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with surgical procedures for more comprehensive anti-aging results.

Facial rejuvenation is a variety of procedures meant to help you reverse signs of aging in your face and regain a more youthful appearance. Signs of aging can include a sagging jawline or face, loss of volume in your cheeks and under your eyes, wrinkles around your eyes and lips, frown lines, dynamic or static lines on your forehead, drooping eyelids, and bags under your eyes.
Because there will likely be more than one procedure, you will feel a certain level of soreness, tenderness, and sensitivity, but there shouldn’t be any severe pain. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers or ask for a pain prescription if you think it’s needed.
Because there are different procedures and combinations available, the price will vary based on your particular needs. Because this is generally an elective procedure, insurance providers do not usually cover the costs. However, there are financing and payment options available.
Recovery time will vary depending on what you would like done and the number of procedures you have, along with your age and general health. Plan to take at least a week off from work or other obligations. Swelling and bruising can also take longer to heal.
This depends on the type of procedures you elect to have done. Most incisions, however, are made in the natural folds of the face and along the hairline and brows, so scars are not usually visible. In addition, the scars will fade over time.
Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz requires that patients interested in undergoing Facial Rejuvenation in Miami need a consultation before scheduling surgery. This allows him to establish eligibility for the procedure(s). Please note that you should be in good health, have some wrinkles and loss of collagen/volume, and do not smoke.
