In compliance with the code of practice of medical ethics in Bolivia, we are not at liberty to disclose the identity of our surgeons for publicity purposes. However, the name and the CV of the surgeon will be passed on to you after receipt of your medical history form.
Why can’t I find much information about the hospitals and surgeons on the web?
Plastic surgery profession in Ibero American countries is ruled by a common code of ethics which is of obligatory fulfilment by all the plastic surgery boards affiliated to the FILACP, a prestigious federation that gathers together the majority of plastic surgeons societies and boards in Spanish and Portuguese spoken nations.
The code of ethics explicitly prohibits to its members making publicity and advertising in media, websites, TV, etc. For this reason you will not find their credentials listed here since all of them are doctors with a professional career, important positions at hospitals and universities, many of them also involved in scientific research activities. However, patients will have all needed information regarding plastic surgeons assigned to their case according to type of surgery and experience needed for each particular procedure, in a confidential way through the Personal Information Panel.
Makeover Travel has done all the hard work and due diligence for you.
Over the years, we have interviewed and met just about every surgeon and private clinics in Bolivia. We selected the few clinics and surgeons to work with based on the most important factors: evidence of excellent past work, a flawless track record, experience, service and price.
As we found out, this combination is extremely difficult to find and hard to come by.
There is a great deal of research that goes into finding the best surgeons and clinics, and we strongly recommend travelling with us just for this reason.
It is extremely risky choosing a surgeon or hospital via the internet alone, and you will not get the attention, the Surgical Guarantee and service from the clinics and surgeons if you travel alone rather than with Makeover Travel.
