Medellin Plastic Surgeons: Aristizobal Aramburo thru Gomez Botero


Medellensa (or women from Medellin) are considered some of the most beautiful women in the world.  However, they often have had some help.  Plastic surgery is wildly popular in Medellin, Colombia and much of Latin America, and standards of beauty are based on a voluptuous physique with large breasts, small waist and an (often) exaggerated caboose.  Actress Sofia Vergara, of Barranquilla is a classic example of Colombian beauty ideals, which have spread into popularity to the United States.  Many North Americans and Europeans seeking this look come to Medellin for the city’s famed plastic surgeons.

Of the 650 members of the Colombian Society of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, 98 members are located in the Medellin area. Using this directory, I attempted to contact surgeons for interviews.  When e-mail addresses were not available, I contacted surgeons thru the Colombian Society website, when that option was available*.  If the surgeons listed a website, contact was also attempted via website.

Alphabetical listing – compilation is ongoing as I continue efforts to contact and interview plastic surgeons in the city.
