When it comes to plastic surgery, Brazil ranks second in the world ranking, after the United States.

Each year, more people are undergoing surgical procedures in Brazil in search of well being with their own body. With the increase in demand, the number of professionals that are specializing in this area also grows. Therefore, it is fundamental that the patient choose a good professional, regardless of the type of intervention that is willing to make.


"One of the first facts patient should observed is whether the surgeon is accredited to the Regional Council of Medicine (CRM) of his state and if he/she is a member of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery (SBCP)".

Dr. Guilherme Mendes Monteiro is expert by SBCP and member of the Brazilian College of Surgeons. Doctor pays special attention to professional development, such as active participation in national and international congresses and courses


Dr. Guilherme Monteiro is one of the best plastic surgeons in Brazil and experts in treatments such as lipoenxertia. Lipoenxertia is the use of the patient's own fatty tissue as a method of filling the volume for aesthetic or reconstruction purposes. This fat is taken from a region of the body where there is too much fat. After a careful preparation of this fat, it can be injected in a suitable place to obtain aesthetic result. The great advantage of lipoenxertia over other methods of filling with synthetic materials is that fat is naturally available in almost all people, easily removed or aspirated if necessary.


Dr. Guilherme Monteiro is also a pioneer in the placement of breast implants through the armpit region, which he says is the least risky technique for the patient. "It's a more thorough surgery, but the aesthetic results are undoubtedly better. The axillary pathway presents as a great advantage the absence of scars in the breast, since the entire incision is hidden, in the armpit region. In this procedure the discomforts in the postoperative period and the risk of displacement, when compared with other techniques, such as submuscular, are also lower.


Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is also one of the most popular procedures.

Being in a central position on the face, the nose is responsible, in large part, for the harmony of the face, so Dr. consider this procedure as one of the most fascinating in plastic surgery.


Dr. Guilherme Monteiro works with the technique of structured rhinoplasty that has as basic principles to separate the skin of the nose from the bony and cartilaginous structures, to carve the cartilages and bones symmetrically, to improve the respiratory system and to strengthen the nasal skeleton by means of grafts and attachment points. The result is a nose with sculpted and strengthened structure. "This technique differs from traditional reductive rhinoplasty, which reduces the skeleton of the nose by removing cartilage and bone, weakening its support and leaving the nose vulnerable to the forces of distortion caused by respiration and scar tissue," explains Dr. Guilherme Monteiro.


Whatever the procedure the patient is looking for, liposuction, silicone implant, rhinoplasty or any other, there are some tips given by the doctor that should be taken into consideration before entering the operating room. "Plastic surgery does not solve the problem of who is traumatized with his own body. Surgical intervention applies in cases of improvement of well-being and self-esteem, but can not be considered as the solution to all problems, if these arise from an even greater problem, the psychological, "warns the doctor.
