Conveniently located in Jacksonville, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, has paid much attention toward the specific effects of volume loss in the aging face. This focus in our practice has led us to explore many of the solutions available on the market today. These procedures may be provided as stand-alone treatments or performed in conjunction with surgical procedures or liposuction. Among the many options available, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery recommends and provides Contoura Plus to individuals residing in Ponte Vedra Beach, Orange Park, Lakeside and nearby areas in North Florida.

What Does Contoura Do?
The process of aging in the face is affected by many factors, such as sun exposure, stress, oxidative damage, medical conditions, smoking and/or genetics. Sagging and slackening of the superficial muscle(s) of the face and neck cause many of the most visible signs of aging in the face.
The weakening of internal muscular structures causes facial tissue to fall in a vertical direction. The effects of gravity on the face may be easily reversed with facelift surgery; however, there is another visible aspect of aging that facelift surgery does not address, and that is the loss of volume and contour that affects soft facial tissue as we grow older.
What is Contoura Plus?
Thanks to new scientific developments, there is now a procedure that treats the most common signs of aging in the face. Contoura Plus combines a dermal filler treatment with a surgical procedure, such as a facelift to correct both sagging skin and sunken cheeks in the same session.
The visible signs of aging in the face are complex. Many individuals are affected by the sagging caused by gravity, as well as wrinkles and hollows caused by loss of volume in the cheeks and under the eyes. Contoura Plus addresses both of these visible signs of aging, totally rejuvenating your facial appearance in just one session!
Contoura Plus is a strategic combination of procedures that reverses the effects of gravity and restores volume and natural contour to the face.
Dr. Garcia will discuss your surgical options, such as a facelift, blepharoplasty and mini facelift , depending on your specific concerns, your age and the overall condition of your skin. Your procedure will include the selected surgery and treatment with dermal fillers to increase the fullness and definition in your face, resulting in smoother, tighter skin.
What Makes Contoura Unique?
Traditional methods of autologous tissue transfer using tissue from the patient’s own body have yielded mixed results, typically due to tissue resorption after the transfer. Although physicians have tried a variety of formulas and methods to address this problem, none has been as effective as the addition of the patient’s own adult stem cells to the tissue.
Where is Contoura Used?
There are several areas of the face that are commonly affected by the loss of facial volume, such as the temples, eye region, cheeks, folds between the nose and mouth (melolabial folds), folds below the corners of the mouth (marionette lines) and chin crease areas. The injection of revolumizing cells with Contoura flattens indentations and fills concavities to impart a more youthful, smoother and rejuvenated appearance to the face.
Why Contoura Plus?
Contoura Plus improves multiple conditions at once, giving you a full rejuvenation and natural looking results.
The combination of procedures allows Dr. Garcia to produce remarkable results that look more natural than those produced by traditional surgical procedures alone. The results achieved with Contoura Plus are permanent.
