About Dr. Cuellar

Dr. Cuellar’s Facelift Expertise

Dr. Cuellar stands at the forefront of facial plastic surgery, renowned for his pioneering work in the DEEP PLANE FACELIFT technique. As one of the few surgeons in Mexico performing this procedure, he brings unparalleled expertise and innovation to the field.

After earning his medical degree, Dr. Cuellar dedicated three years to intensive fellowships in cosmetic surgery, microsurgery, and craniofacial surgery. These experiences, garnered at esteemed institutions such as the University of California Los Angeles, honed his skills and shaped his approach to facial rejuvenation.

The deep plane facelift technique used by Dr. Cuellar represents a paradigm shift in facial rejuvenation. Unlike traditional facelift methods, which may result in a tightened appearance, Dr. Cuellar’s approach focuses on achieving tension-free movement. This is accomplished through the meticulous release of ligaments tethering the deep plane layer, allowing for natural lifting throughout the face and neck.

By targeting four specific ligaments, Dr. Cuellar ensures comprehensive rejuvenation with subtle, yet impactful results. The deep plane facelift technique not only addresses signs of aging but also preserves the integrity of facial contours for a refreshed and youthful appearance.

For more information and to discuss how this technique can benefit you, schedule your consultation with Dr. Cuellar today.

To make the face and neck look younger and smoother, four main ligament groups need to be loosened:

Zygomatic ligaments in the cheeks are loosened to lift the cheeks up, making the face look heart-shaped and youthful. This also smooths out hollows under the eyes and folds around the nose and mouth, without needing extra fillers.

Mandibular ligament near the chin is loosened to improve lines around the chin and jawline.

Masseteric ligaments along the jaw are loosened to make the jawline smoother and tighter.

Cervical ligaments in the neck are loosened during a deep facelift to make the neck look younger and smooth, fixing any bunching of tissue at the back of the jaw.

This approach helps lift and tighten the face and neck naturally.
