Recommendations for patients coming from abroad.

In Colombia there are many general practitioners doing aesthetic surgery without a proper training. Many of those are physicians that started doing aesthetic surgery after having just done a short course in other countries such as Brazil or Argentina and then boast themselves as Aesthetic Surgeons.

Plastic surgery in Colombia is a medical speciality that requires general practitioners to train during four more years. You can easily fall in wrong hands if you don’t do a proper research. Make sure that your surgeon is really a plastic surgeon by visiting the website of the Colombian Society of Aesthetic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you want to have surgery done in Medellín, Colombia, first you must consult the website of the Colombian Society of Aesthetic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, there you can find the list of plastic surgeons that are members of the society. If your surgeon if members of this society then you can be sure that he or she is actually a plastic surgeon. 

Don’t believe everything you see on internet and social media. Many practitioners without a proper training swarm on social media and boast themselves as aesthetic surgeons.

Have a general medical check-up done before making your trip. You could be unaware of a health condition that contraindicate surgery, if you figure that out by the time you already are in Colombia that would be a very unpleasant surprise.

For the same reasons blood work should also be done before your trip, make sure asking your surgeon why kind of lab testing is required in your case.

Avoid anti-inflammatory medications for at least one week before your surgery. Medications as common as ibuprofen could increase the risk of bleeding during and after your surgery.

Avoid supplements such as glucosamine, vitamin E, garlic pearls, Omega 3 among others, if in doubt ask your surgeon.

Do not smoke during at least 4 weeks before your surgery.

Buy trip insurance in case you are forced to change your flight for any reason.
