Plastic surgery is constantly evolving so not only does it need to be continuously updated; it also needs to be permanently researched in the search for excellence. This excellence needs to reach the patient by always looking to improve their health and well-being. To achieve this, Dr. Javier Collado combines the utmost scientific exactitude with a personal and individual treatment, clearly explaining the different steps of every procedure and offering latest and the most effective solutions in each case.
The plastic surgeon’s ultimate goal is the patient’s satisfaction thanks to a result that not only seeks functionality but also, more importantly, naturalness. In this way, a good result shall be perceived as something harmonious or beautiful, it may even go unnoticed. On the other hand, an artificial result will draw attention given that it will be perceived as something that is unreal or not becoming. Each patient should be examined individually indicating the most appropriate technique in each case, thus avoiding the stigma of a poorly executed procedure and favouring a speedy recovery.
