PLASTIC SURGERY IN COLOMBIA FAQ
Bogota is located in the equator zone and its daily temperature ranges around 50º F and 70º F. We recommend that you bring clothes for a moderately cold climate when coming for your plastic surgery.
Language is not a problem. From your first contact with us you will have available bilingual personnel that will help you permanently throughout the process. Once you arrive to Bogota’s airport for your plastic surgery one of our bilingual team members will be waiting for you and will help you in all the activities during your trip.
Each of our patients will receive a cell phone (costs covered by Natural Belle) for local calls. This cell phone will allow our users to contact our team at any time during the day or night until the end of the plastic surgery in Colombia. On the other hand, each patient will have access to international calls at the hotel where she/he stays at. (International calls costs are covered by the patient).
Natural Belle is a surgical center committed to excellence and supported by the Unidad Quirurgica de Los Alpes (UQLA).

Before traveling to Colombia you should pay 30% of the package total amount. This payment will cover all the arrangements previous to the plastic surgery in Colombia, to provide you with a safe and comfortable stay in the country. The remaining 70% should be paid in Bogota once the post-operative period has finished and you are ready to return to your home country.
Natural Belle has the most experienced team of Colombian plastic surgeons. Each of our surgeons belongs to the Colombian Society of Plastic Surgery. There are currently 8 surgeons; 6 plastic surgeons and 2 otolaryngologists surgeons specialized in plastic surgery; that have performed more than 300 surgical procedures per year during the last 7 years. We also have a vascular surgeon and a gynecologist. At the time of the surgery, we assign each of our patients the most appropriate plastic surgeon and if needed we work as a team.
If the patient has prepaid the initial 30% of the value of the plastic surgery, he/she can ask for the surgery to be programmed again on a later time. Natural Belle will keep the initial quote for a period of three months. After this period, Natural Belle reserves the right to perform a new price quote on the initial package offered.
In most cases plastic surgery procedures are performed without hospitalization. Some few cases may require the patient to stay at the surgical center for one night. At Natural Belle we offer facilities for a short stay up to 24 hours; for patients that may need it.
Each patient tolerates pain in a different way and each case is different. Some patients may experience more pain than others after their plastic surgery in Colombia. Our team of surgeons will provide resources to alleviate the post-operative pain as soon as possible, including painkillers and anti-inflammatory medicines. Surgeons may also use physical methods to diminish discomfort. We can also provide an additional pain management therapy to optimize the recovery process. This therapy is performed by Natural Belle’s anesthesiologists and consists on leaving a catheter in the spine after the surgery through which the anesthesiologist will inject medicine that diminishes pain. The patient leaves the clinic with this catheter and will remain with it an average of three days. During these three days the anesthesiologist will keep track of the patient’s evolution.

Infrastructure and clinical practices are also an important factor to consider. At Natural Belle you will find a plastic surgery at low cost without sacrificing quality and experience.
Bogotá is a cosmopolitan city that offers almost any kind of food and food should not be an obstacle to perform the plastic surgery in Colombia. Our patients must eat a balanced food which may not be as varied.
At Natural Belle our priority is the safety and healthy of our patients and we work with the highest quality and safety standards. Any plastic surgery however, implies some risks that we try to minimize as much as possible. We have partnered with a multinational insurance company, expert on these cases; (QBE).

It is widely known that costs of medical services in industrialized countries
are higher than those of non-industrialized countries. Cost of technology,
bad practice insurances and per capita income of a specific country are
factors that influence those costs. Colombia has reached a high development
level in the medicine field; however the costs of our medical practice
can not be compared with those in the Untied States and European countries.
The costs of a plastic surgery in Colombia are
with no doubt lower than those of the United States and Europe.
At Natural Belle we charge our patients reasonable prices. Our foreign patients pay the same price for their plastic surgery that our Colombian patients do.
At Natural Belle we seek the total satisfaction of our patients. We can not make miracles but we have an experienced human team committed to providing the best results to any plastic surgery. Prior to the surgery the plastic surgeon will talk with the patient regarding expectations. Once both the patient and the surgeon are clear on the real expectations of the surgery, there will be an evaluation parameter. If results are clearly unsatisfactory, Natural Belle will assume the costs of additional procedures required to get the expected result. Transportation and lodging costs will also be assumed by Natural Belle.
Although during the 1990’s Bogotá was considered one of the most dangerous cities in the continent, the city has gone through a dramatic change as a result of the current government’s security policy. The crime rate has dropped significantly in the past years and Bogotá is now considered safer than Washington D.C., Caracas, Chicago and Rio de Janeiro among others. Like any capital city in the world, there are certain precautions to be taken while in Bogotá. At Natural Belle we are very concerned with the safety of our patients and we will always look after our patients during the plastic surgery in Colombia. We will recommend you the best and safest places to visit. With the right precautions we can assure that you will have a great and safe time at Bogotá and you will like the hospitality of its people.
