Where do I operate?

All the procedures were performed in IQ InterQuirófanos, a surgical unit with hospitalization service, located in the city of Medellín, whose operating rooms have great technology and the highest standards of quality and service. Ten years of service to our patients have catapulted us as the best plastic surgery unit, aesthetics of the city and country of its kind. Around 50,000 surgical patients have undergone surgery and talk about the seriousness, support and security of an institution that invests every day in biotechnology, human resources and process innovation, thinking only of the patient.

I have a specialized and trained team to offer each of my patients a pleasant experience during all stages of their procedure.

Today more than 10,000 patients can vouch for my services and my delivery to them.

    "CAPTAIN OF AIRLINE B 737. Three years ago I traveled to Medellín to have a rhinoplasty with Dr. Vélez Lara.  It was an excellent experience.  I arrived at the clinic at 7:00 am and by 9:00 am I was in recovery to go to the apartment. I didn't feel any post-surgical pain and I'm happy with the results.


  • María Alejandra Martínez

    I am a pianist, I am 22 years old, in December 2015 I was operated by plastic surgeon Juan Carlos Vélez Lara in IQ Interquirofanos. The result exceeded my expectations in every respect. The doctor was supremely careful with infection prevention and pre- and post-surgical care which not everywhere is so careful. I would certainly recommend surgeon Juan Carlos Velez Lara to anyone who is about to undergo plastic surgery.

    A long time ago I wanted to improve my physical appearance but making the decision was crucial. The doctor made this easier by explaining the procedure in detail and giving me the confidence to make this surgery possible. I must emphasize the kindness of all the staff, the excellent service, and the warmth of the medical team. 
    I really liked the result of my surgery, because I chose the best plastic surgeon.
