    high level of specialisation. He is a painter and sculptor who is also very passionate about the arts.
    He is most recognised for developing the procedure known as “Natural Lift,” which lifts the lower face and neck.

    in three layers.

    We developed a surgical centre that is genuinely state-of-the-art,
    completely furnished with cutting-edge equipment imported from Germany, a
