Integral Plastic Surgery and Maxillofacial Clinic was founded in 2005 by two brothers. Dr Erik Rivera, DDS, specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery; Dr. Christian Rivera is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. They operate a full-service clinic within the walls of Hospital La Catolica, one of Costa Rica’s leading private hospitals.
Cosmetic surgery procedures include breast augmentation and post-cancer breast reconstruction;
abdominoplasty (tummy tucks)
rhinoplasty (nose reconstruction)
Dental procedures include dental implants
orthognathics (corrective jaw surgery)
surgical management of temporomandibular (jaw joint) conditions
general cosmetic dental procedures (including veneers and metal-free crowns)
The clinic utilizes some of the latest instrumentation,including Cynosure Icon Fractional Laser (skin resurfacing and scar removal), Syneron Velashape II (body contouring, cellulite reduction), Viora Reaction, Biomet GPSIII (used in gravitational platelet separation), BIOPHYMED U225 Mesotherapy Injector Gun, and Ethicon harmonic scalpel.
The clinic performs over 360 procedures annually, around 20 percent with international patients, mostly from North America.
English and Spanish are both spoken.
Consultations and second opinions are offered by both surgeons via Skype for $50.
Please note that many of the procedures and much of the instrumentation deployed by Integral and other cosmetic surgery clinics are not FDA approved, and are sometimes subject to differing clinical opinion. Patients should check into the efficacy of such treatments.
