Dr. Walter Zamarian Jr. is proud to have continued a tradition handed down by his father, Dr. Walter Zamarian Sr., renowned plastic surgeon who worked in the Londrina region for many years. What makes him stand out as a plastic surgeon is his acute sense of aesthetics, improved with years of experience and training.
Dr. Zamarian Jr. has operated with the best plastic surgeons in Brazil and abroad. Fluent in Portuguese, English, Spanish, French and Italian, he sees patients from different nationalities. What’s his commitment? To provide his patients with the most attractive and long-lasting results, following the example of renowned Professor and plastic surgeon Ivo Pitanguy.
“I see plastic surgery as an opportunity to be creative, as an artist. My mission is not only to attain the best aesthetics results or to correct flaws but also to search for a balance between mind and spirit”, emphasizes Dr. Zamarian Jr., who spends his free time swimming and discovering the universe of photography and wines, his favorite activities.
Facial plastic surgery
Like the eyelids, the nose is an important facial feature and deserves special attention from plastic surgeons to reach the best results. So, Dr Zamarian performs closed rhinoplasty with no external incisions, with the exception of the closing of the nostrils, and he is constantly searching for the most natural result possible.
With a precise technique developed during years of specialization with Dr. Pitanguy in Rio de Janeiro, Dr. Zamarian performs aesthetic rhinoplasty in thirty to forty minutes, and the patient recovers fast, being able to go back to work in two weeks’ time and return to his physical activities one month later.
The face develops visible signs of aging with time such as wrinkles, saggy tissues, excess eyelid skin associated with prominent fat pads, drooping structures such as the eyebrows and many more. Facelift is the surgical treatment that can bring a natural and relaxing appearance back to the face. After a three-hour facelift procedure, recovery is fast and most patients go back to work between ten to fourteen days, with a new look.
In this procedure, Dr. Zamarian treats the following facial structures: forehead, eyebrows, eyelids, nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, the middle third of the face, and neck.
The forehead can be treated in two different ways: through coronal brow lift (larger incision) or video (five small incisions). Dr. Zamarian prefers to treat the forehead with a coronal incision, since results have proved to be more predictable and more lasting. Through an ear-to-ear incision, around two to three inches behind the hairline, the forehead is adequately exposed and the following muscle groups are approached: procerus, corrugators and frontalis. Additionally, the eyebrows, which many times are drooped due to aging, can be lifted, especially in their most lateral part, the eyebrow tail. This helps soften the wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes, changing the expression of sadness and conferring a more jovial and attractive look.
Eyelids can be treated along with facelift or another isolated procedure. As we normally talk to people looking straight into their eyes, a blepharoplasty can have great impact on a person’s look, being responsible for sixty percent of the result of a facelift combined with an eyelid surgery. During this procedure, we treat the excess skin and fat with small incisions. Recovery is fast, with stitches being removed in three days.
The nasolabial folds are deep wrinkles that come down from the nose wings to the corners of the mouth. During a facelift, the superior and lateral tractions of the skin may be sufficient to stretch the nasolabial folds. Nevertheless, an additional filling with hyaluronic acid may be needed either during the surgical procedure or later in the office.
The famous saggy cheeks or jowls correspond to drooping of skin and fat a bit laterally to the chin. This highly common condition is treated with liposuction and SMAS plication, which is a layer of tissue that covers the muscles of the face. After a facelift, the saggy appearance disappears along with the tired look.
Vertical lip lines are those wrinkles around the lips, especially on the upper one, and can be adequately treated with dermabrasion. They may also be treated as an isolated procedure, in the office, with local anesthesia and sedation.
The medium third of the face, located below the eyes and above the mandible/jowls, is treated with SMAS plication and skin excess removal. This brings out a more lasting and natural result, since skin traction is light, once the deep tissues have already been lifted.
An aging neck, also known as ”turkey neck”, has wrinkles, platysma bands and fat excess. Thus, Dr. Zamarian treats the neck region with liposuction, platysma plication and skin removal. It can also be treated separately, with a neck lift.
The eyelids play an important role in the aesthetics of the face. Therefore, Dr. Zamarian examines his patients carefully before recommending the best treatment for this noble area of the face. The surgery normally includes the removal of skin and fat bags, both from the upper and lower eyelids, but there may have some variations such as transconjunctival blepharoplasty or phenol peel for sagging lower eyelids.
Patients with small or retracted chin may benefit from chin augmentation with solid silicone chin implants. The surgery is performed with an incision made inside the mouth to place the implant close to the bone, thus projecting the tissues (skin, fat and muscles) of the chin forward, in a highly natural way. The size is carefully chosen by Dr. Zamarian and the patients have utterly attractive results five days after the procedure, already.
Plastic surgery of prominent ears can be performed at the age of six and older, preferably during the preschool period, to prevent bullying by schoolmates. However, many people stop worrying about them at this age, putting off the ear pinning procedure for later.
Otoplasty is a plastic surgery resource and details such as the antihelix fold and conchal angle can be improved with this procedure in less than an hour.
Individuals who have deep wrinkles or scars on their faces as a result of aging, acne, or other facial trauma can undergo dermabrasion treatment at Clínica Zamarian to improve their appearance. During the procedure, Dr. Zamarian uses a high-speed rotary wheel to eliminate the top layers of skin and reveal smooth and flawless skin underneath. Patients who undergo dermabrasion treatment may experience redness and skin sensitivity for approximately one week. After the healing process, skin appears younger and more radiant. In just one hour, you can obtain beautiful, glowing skin that will last for years to come.
