In addition to performing all cosmetic procedures, Dr. Cortez will personally answer questions during your consultation, spending as much time as necessary to discuss expectations about your procedure.

Tightens face, improves neck laxity, reduces fat, sharpens chin and neck angle, and makes the entire face more youthful. Improves receding chin and fills out areas adjacent to jowls that make you appear tired and angry.

This neurotoxin is injected into specific facial muscles, blocking the nerve impulses that trigger wrinkle-causing muscle contractions. Botox smoothes and improves the lines and wrinkles that cause an angry, tired or unhappy appearance. Also, Dr. Cortez uses Botox to elevate your eyebrows and frame your eyes to make them look brighter and younger.

Low eyebrows may also affect your vision and give you a feeling that your brows and eyelids are heavy. Our MIBL (minimally invasive brow lift) is performed in our accredited outpatient surgery center in Overland Park, KS under twilight anesthesia. It is an absolutely painless procedure. Three tiny incisions hidden in your hair gives us access to do this surgery, and Botox given two weeks before surgery weakens the muscles that push the brows downward.

Patients often complain of a heavy feeling in their upper eyelids and a tired look with hooding skin covering their eyes. Lower eyelid complaints are usually about bulging fat that make people look fatigued or like they've had a long night out. Dr. Cortez uses an incision-less technique for the lower lid fat removal. For excess upper lid skin he uses an incision in a crease of the upper lid, that becomes imperceivable with healing.

Common lower face complaints include a sagging or droopy face, jowling, double chin, turkey gobbler and neck cords. Dr. Cortez has developed procedures to treat the lower face that results in a natural look that enables the patient to look 10 to 15 years younger. None of his patients have the "windswept" or "over-pulled" look.

This loss of volume is often mistakenly treated with surgery and the patient ends up with a stretched and pulled appearance. When we lose volume in our face we are now fortunate to have hyaluronic acid fillers to replace the volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from scratch in the laboratory and mimic the hyaluronic acid that each one of us has in our body's cells.

A well-positioned chin makes the entire chin jaw line appear sharper, the neck look more defined, and the nose look smaller if it is too prominent. This implant fills out the pre-jowl sulcus so that the jowl is less apparent and makes the face look more youthful. It does not increase chin projection. This is for individuals with small or receding chins which often result in the sagging neck blending with the chin and creating the Alfred Hitchcock neck.

If we're not available, leave your name and phone number with our answering service, and we will return your call to get the details of your skincare order. As the natural aging process occurs, our skin cells gradually lose their ability to rapidly turn over and renew. Combine this with the effects of sun damage, smoking, and other environmental factors and we see the result of the breakdown of collagen and elastic fibers.

No. Dr. Cortez does not trust products mixed by anyone other than himself. Immediately prior to performing the Phenol-Croton Oil Peel, Dr. Cortez, with the assistance of his nursing staff, formulate the specific mixtures to be used on the patient that is being treated. A facelift will reposition sagging and loose skin and muscle in the face and neck. The facelift procedure does not in any way help medium-deep wrinkles, lines, brown spots, or pre-skin cancers.
