Based on our experience attending to persons of the whole world, it has become natural to identify the needs of each one of our patients, offering in an integral way services created for their well-being. We offer exclusive packages for international patients, including the stay during their recovery.

Facial procedures

With age most people start considering any of the many facial procedures allowing the desired juvenile appearance recovering. Different techniques are used to correct the face imperfections originated by the natural passage of time. However facial procedures are also executed in many young people, such as rhinoplasty and mentoplasty, which are getting very popular and become one of the most frequent face procedures.

Breast procedures

Some of the treatments we offer consider breast augmentation, breast reduction, and mamillary reconstruction in case of cancer survivals. Bringing a better aesthetic aspect to women’s chest is of a great importance as a symbol of feminine identity. In addition, we practice gynecomastia or male breast reduction surgery too.

Body procedures

Corporal surgery procedures sometimes are the best way to obtain or recover a lost figure, either due to pregnancy or weight changes. People with morbid obesity and overweight, could eventually achieved massive weight loss with the help of specialized surgery or medical treatment, but you should consider that not every patient is an appropriate candidates for certain interventions. A medical consultation and specialized opinion are mandatory on first place.

Other surgeries and treatments

Some imperfections or age signs can be corrected with such minimally invasive therapies, which can be used alone or combined with surgery to maximize results.

Combined procedures

To get the expected result some patients need to undergo two or more surgeries. This procedures combination allows to achieve drastic and very remarkable changes in the figure to obtain impressive results. One of the advantages of combining procedures is that you will only go through the surgical process once and the recovery period will be limited to only one.
