DR. LUIZ TOLEDO
Dr Luiz Toledo is a well known and respected Plastic Surgeon, an innovator of surgical rejuvenation techniques a teacher and an author.
Dr. Toledo is a well-known Brazilian Plastic Surgeon, specialized in Plastic Surgery more than 30 years ago in São Paulo, giving him the qualifications to become a full active member of the Brazilian Plastic Surgery Society. He started his life as a surgeon practicing in both fields of the profession, aesthetic surgery as well as reconstructive surgery, working in a public hospital and specializing in the treatment of skin cancer.
The Dr.’s international profile with his many years of surgical experience combined with his artistic sensitivity has made him a sought-after Plastic Surgeon. He has helped thousands of his patients to look younger and feel better.
Dr. Toledo was an innovator of a new technique of Liposuction called Liposculpture, a gentle removal of fat cells using a syringe, meaning these cells could be re-injected giving volume where volume is lacking. Dr. Toledo started injecting small volumes of fat in the face and breasts more than 30 years ago, this led a few years later to the development of the procedure known today as the Brazilian Buttock Technique widely adopted around the world.
As well as his work as a surgeon and the care of his patients, Dr. Toledo is a sought-after lecturer and is invited to share his experiences and knowledge to young surgeons in the field. His goal is to improve surgical techniques, making Plastic Surgery safer in the operating room while aiming for natural results and a safe recovery period.
Dr. Toledo’s technical skill and aesthetic eye gives dramatic results to his body contouring work. He is one of the key developers of Superficial Liposculpture, a refined technique to improve the results of body contouring surgery.
Under the minimally invasive techniques we see his expertise in facial rejuvenation before the patient needs a face lift.
Fat grafting, pioneered by Dr. Toledo almost 30 years ago is indicated frequently during his consultations, a natural way of using the patient’s own fat to replace the lost volume in the face and body.
Dr. Toledo is one of the few Plastic Surgeons in Dubai who performs the total body lift often indicated after massive weight loss.
Dr. Toledo performs all aesthetic procedures for the face and body including some of the more traditional techniques, the majority of them undertaken in a high-tech hospital in Dubai.
He was one of the first doctors in 1992 to utilize computer imaging in his consultations.
This imaging method allows the patient to see an instant simulation of the proposed result of the surgery. This way we can confirm that the Dr. and the patient have the same end result in mind before undergoing the procedure.
Dr. Toledo has many scientific publications in the field of Plastic Surgery, both journals and text books. His book “Refinements in Facial and Body Contouring” was released worldwide by Lippincott-Raven and subsequently translated into several languages. His two books with Springer-Verlag were important milestones in explaining new techniques, the refinement of traditional Liposuction, “Superficial Liposculpture” was considered one of the more important textbooks of the ‘90’s. “Circumareolar Techniques for Breast Surgery” explains the limits of this important technique. Dr. Toledo has edited 16 Plastic Surgery textbooks.
