    What to expect

    The @drlopezrios Consult

    You and @drlopezrios will customize a plan to meet your needs and desired outcome.

    Consultations are always free. Here is my opportunity to get to know you and your vision. Then, share my expertise and recommendations based on 8+ years of experience and get your procedure’s cost.

    I see my patients personally from around the world; bilingual is offered in English or Spanish.

    Book your appointment, and I will see you online throw a Tele orientation session or in-person in my Clinic in Medellín, Colombia. I also offer in-person orientation in the Great Toronto area in Canada.

    The @drlopezrios Procedure

    I perform the surgeries and procedures in Medellín, Colombia, where I have a plastic surgery licence.  

    You’ll arrive on the day of surgery fully prepared and confident in your outcome because @drlopezrios is a plastic surgeon training in one of the most important universities in Colombia. He is working internationally in surgical safety and quality.


    Most surgeries are day surgeries, done under general or local anesthetic at private hospitals: IQ Interquirófanos and Quirófanos el Tesoro located in an exclusive neighbourhood of the city with all the facilities you require before and after your procedure. 


    After surgery, you wake up slightly groggy and a bit uncomfortable and head home soon after. 

    In some cases, you passed the night at the clinic to take care of you with doctors and nurses’ training staff.


    The @drlopezrios Follow Up

    We see you the very next day, ensuring optimal recovery and happiness with your result.

    We see every patient the day after surgery. Most find their discomfort extremely manageable, thanks to the prescription and the pain relief pump. Our post-op team will walk you through every step of your recovery and answer all your questions.
