4 out of 5 stars Vaser Liposuction
I had 4D Vaser Lipo surgery done with breast and butt augmentation. Love my results, he was able to operate on a slim patient and still produce excellent results. The recovery process was quite brutal so bring your high tolerance to pain! I stayed at the spa/inn that is affiliated with his clinic, and all of my needs were met - which was good, because I was fairly weak due to lots of blood...

A plastic surgeon I met in London had told me that Dr. Hoyos is the Master in the world for Hi Def Lipo. I was very impressed with his professionalism and totally amazed by the Hi Def cases he has done. After a few months of my surgery I am pleased to have the opportunity to recommend Dr. Hoyos. I am extremely happy with the results!! Although I live in NY with plenty of doctors, I respect and...

I can't say enough great things about Dr. Alfredo Hoyos practice. The stuff is very friendly, prompt and helpful. He's a high level plastic surgeon and you feel the difference between his and all the others I've tried in the past. Not even in the same league! Worth the higher cost! I got a beautiful flower arrangement from Dr. Hoyos after surgery; he really knows how to care about his...
Im from Los Angeles and really considering going to Dr. Hoyos. I have some concerns, the cost once you factor in travel and hotels etc I'm looking at like 15K for liposculpture with BBL, my other concern is safety in Colombia, it does make me slightly nervous, what was your experience if you've gone to him from out of the country?

I will write a mid review at one month and a final review at six months post op.
This Doctor is one of the best of the best no doubt. But his international assistant is a nightmare. She doesnt reply emails after months and the dr says one thing and she says another thing. Very unprofessional and unorganized. I had to find another dr. It was a shame.

I finally did it!!!! I'm still recovering and am reaching my one month post op but i wanted to finally post a review. My family lives in Colombia and I'm pretty fluent in Spanish so i didn't have much difficulty on where to stay nor did i have a language barrier. I stayed the first 5 nights at the spa resort they recommend that offers the post op lymphatic massages on site. I...

Not only did Dr. Hoyos write the book on liposuction, he is an extraordinary artist. During my trip to Colombia one of his very courteous staff members conveyed to me; “Dr. Hoyos wanted to be and artist, but his dad encouraged him to go to medical school to become a doctor.” Dr. Hoyos is the perfect combination of true artistry and medical skill; he is a craftsman! Dr. Hoyos is known as the Michelangelo of plastic surgery because he is an incredible sculptor. A quote, on the wall behind Dr. Hoyos' desk reads, "I saw the bird in the stone, so I set him free." Dr. Hoyos pays attention to detail; after all, it is the little things that make his results phenomenal and tailor-made. Not only is Dr. Hoyos an incomparable surgeon, he is very kind, friendly, professional, and compassionate with a great bedside manner and speaks fluent English. Before and after my surgery I stayed at Dr. Hoyos’ hotel where his staff provided excellent care and I felt very safe. Throughout my surgery the head nurse stayed with me at the hospital. My trip to Colombia was pleasant. My results by Dr. Hoyos are outstanding and world-class! I sing the praises of Dr. Hoyos and would highly recommend him to anyone thinking about plastic surgery.

He was absolutely fantastic. Has a great bed side manner and obviously very experienced. I couldn't recommend him enough. A true professional in every sense! I am not going to lie, the recovery for the first few days ( 6) was hard. But I had a nurse with me 24/7 who was brilliant. I am currently one week after my operation and feel much better. I would recommend getting the intravenous pain relief that you take to the spa and give a continuous measures dose of Analgesia. Columbia is a long way to come for surgery from UK a London, but worth it 100 per cent!! I heard he is going to be operating out of Barcelona soon for Europeans and UK, that would have been a better option for me, but never mind, I am so glad I have done it!! The only problem is the after care after you leave the country. I now have a problem 6/7 weeks post surgery and the staff don't get back to me, don't do what they say they are going to do and I feel really let down. I am concerned about the end results and have a problem but I just feel ignored. This is the problem I suppose with going for surgery abroad. If you have an issue afterwards then it's tough luck! They just don't seem to care once you are gone.
