The Bolivian Conferences on Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, the most important events in plastic surgery and the platform for the latest scientific advances are hosted by most of our centres.

We have partnered with the largest international hospital in Santa Cruz. With 8 private and specialist hospitals, it offers healthcare standards similar to what you would find at home.

Our Team
Many vacation destinations do not have formal medical accreditation boards that certify physicians and medical facilities. Bolivia has a long medical academic tradition having very strict laws that regulate training and qualifications of physicians who perform cosmetic surgery.

Furthermore, to ensure you wonderful results and a total safety during your surgery, Makeover Travel requires that each one of our medical team be made up of at the least:

  • 2 board certified plastic surgeons
  • 1 anesthetist
  • 2 Nurses
  • 3 instrumentists

As a general rule, each surgeon works with the same medical team since more than 15 years. 

Being a completely independent company, not tied to any one hospital, private clinic or surgeon; allows us to make our decisions freely, based on experience, qualifications, reputation and results achieved.

Personalized Experience: Our care will focus on our patients as individuals. We will provide every patient an experience customized to their medical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs,

For years we have scoured Bolivia to select the best surgeons and private clinics that provide the unique and wonderful formula of world-class quality and international certifications.

We have interviewed just about every surgeon and for years we have observed the cosmetic surgery results to every surgeons and specialists.
We have been to every private clinic in Bolivia. As we found, this formula is very difficult to find: often the best hospitals and surgeons are not advertised, or nor do they have websites, as they don't need it and they are enough busy just through word of mouth.

As we found out through our research, the marketing hype of advertising or websites doesn't mean that hospitals or surgeons are better, and it often the case that this is a smokescreen for disreputable clinics, who are trying to cash in on the plastic surgery boom.

Makeover Travel is currently in the process of setting up a charity in the aim of providing free reconstructive plastic surgery for underprivileged children.

Our final aim for this year is to conclude the construction of an hospital providing free reconstructive surgery and care for children who are badly burnt.
Travelling with Makeover Travel, what you get is peace of mind from knowing that we will be there for you, which is extremely important when undergoing any type of surgery abroad.

Our Clinics and Hospitals
"Committed to Quality Care"

As an indication of its commitment to offering patients access to the most technologically-advanced and specialized medical practices – in line with world-class 'best practice standards' – our Group has established a number of specialized Clinics and hospitals of Excellence in the fields of Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery.

We currently provide you 8 hospitals and private clinics with 32 specialized medical units, and 46 complementary health-related facilities.

All our hospitals, private clinics and medical centers are certified and highly recommended by foreign agencies, consulates, international insurance companies, embassies, etc.

All of them have been accredited to international standards of quality.

Our clinics and hospitals must go through rigorous testing of the International Health Department to achieve this standard.
Post-surgery cares, qualified medical staff and all needed equipment are available.

We take patient's safety and comfort seriously and we are never in a rush to discharge patients quickly as if having an in-line production machine.

The longer patients stay with us at the clinic, the lesser complications there are likely to arise. Once patients are taken too early to the hotel, they usually begin overdoing it, moving around too much and generally fail to follow medical instruction strictly. Also being alone causes sadness, loneliness and depression which is no good for recovery purposes.

All our work is carried out under the strictest safety procedures. Naturally we have formal certification of approval from the National Area Health Authority, as well as all necessary licenses, Environmental Health, Fire, Health and Safety approvals.

During years Makeover Travel representatives have travelled throughout Bolivia to track down the best medical centers and surgeons.

We have inspected every hospital, centre and accommodation venue, and known personally to all the key person and are regular in touch with them; so we can confidently say that you will get better quality and service that you would have at home.

The service is excellent - with low wages, the clinics are able to employ more staff which means you are guaranteed attention immediately and therefore you will enjoy a better standard of care than you would get at home.

The clinics and hospitals we have selected  have either Joint Commission Accreditation (JCI) or International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which signifies that they are internationally recognized in the field of healthcare.

Our medical centres are the largest, and the most specialized centres in Bolivia for plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.

The independent status of our hospitals means that revenues and profit are ploughed back into new equipment and technology.
  • An ideal  environment for effective healthcare.
  • All our hospitals are equipped with special areas for cosmetic and plastic surgeries. We never mix healthy patients and patients with infectious diseases. Control of cross-infection is essential in every medical or dental setting but the problems of cross-infection are even more serious in a standard hospital setting. Surgical wound infection is an important class of hospital acquired (cross) infections.
  • Therefore in a safe setting, healthy cosmetic surgery patients should not be treated in the same operation theatre, cared for by the same health care workers and recover on the same wards as patients with infectious diseases.
  • Our cosmetic surgery patients are always treated in specials operation theatres with different health care workers and recover on different wards as patients with infectious diseases.
  • Consulting rooms for doctors in private practice and a one-stop service for patients.
  • Clean, calm and quiet ambience.
  • Spacious corridors and bathrooms - wheel chair compatible.
  • Food - Hygienic, high quality - Bolivian and Continental.
  • Our hotels and clinics are concentrated within a compact area of the city.

At Makeover Travel we consider that the practice of Cosmetic Surgery should not be different to any other Surgical or Medical practice. Plastic Surgery operations should depend on the same safety measures, professionalism, equipment and guarantees offered in any other specialty. To this end we provide the best resources for each treatment we perform, always guided by the criterion of medical excellence.

Makeover Travel Testimonials

What a fantastic experience! I began this journey in the fall, quite nervous about the idea and began emailing Monica with question after question--which she patiently answered. When my husband and I arrived in Santa Cruz, Monica and Jeremy, were waiting at the airport for us. We went to a fantastic 5 star hotel  / the Camino Real Hotel 5*****. The night before surgery we were able to meet other patients who either had already had their surgery or were awaiting surgery in the next day or so. My husband was able to stay in the clinic with me for the 2 days I was there and everyone was brilliant. I am thrilled with the results of my surgery and would recommend Makeover Travel to anyone! The personal touch cannot be met anywhere else, I'm sure.  Thank you so much to everyone at Makeover Travel for a fantastic experience!!


Thank so much for the unforgettable experience. I have never been abroad before. I feel very lucky to have chosen Bolivia as a destination for my first trip. The people are so kind. Thanks again!
Maria – USA - NEW YORK



From the moment I arrived I can truly say this became a 5***** experience!! The whole team and the nurses at the hospital are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble for any of them, they really do care about your welfare every step of the way. I truly believe that if I had this done in the UK I would not have received the standard of treatment & aftercare I received with MAKEOVER TRAVEL, not to mention the money I saved!!! I underwent my operation on 29th May, it is now 30 days since I had my op, I am completely healed, I look fabulous, & feel fantastic!! Since I have been home everyone has commented how real my boobs look and cannot believe how well I am. If you have any fears about this company its professionalism or authenticity please don’t you will not be disappointed. I cannot thank you all at MAKEOVER TRAVEL enough for making this a truly unforgettable experience. I would only recommend MAKEOVER TRAVEL to anyone thinking of cosmetic surgery:-).



I went with my friend Rachel (who herself had liposuction, breast augmentation and a tummy tuck!) and had an amazing experience. From the minute we arrived we were treated like princesses!!! We decided that we would make a bit of a holiday out of our stay and booked an extra week at the hotel, this way we got to relax for a few days prior to our surgery and see a bit of Santa CRUZ! We had our surgery on 29/05/07, it was great as we got to share a room at the clinic and they even let me stay an extra night to be with Rachel (with a tummy tuck you need a 2 night stay at the clinic). The surgeons and their assistants were fabulous, as were the nurses. Being in the same sort of profession i had bit more of an idea as to what should be happening and i could not fault a thing!


I had a complete liposuction and breast implants. My new body is amazing, the surgeon is so skilled he was able to place my breast implants under the muscle by placing an incision around my nipple! I also asked about varicous vein removal which they dont do yet but they took me for a consultation with another surgeon about this - nothing was too much trouble!
I was apprehensive at first but i would recommend using this company to anyone!


I attended Makeover Travel early in September for facelift and breastlift surgery. I would strongly recommend their services for professionalism and quality. The surgeons work is of outstanding quality, and they are extremely experienced and talented. My results have far outreached my expectations and I am totally delighted with the results. I was pampered in 5 Star luxury and found Jeremy and the team at MAKEOVER TRAVEL extremely obliging and friendly, paying regular visits and on call 24/7 incase of an emergency. My sister has subsequently booked her surgery with Makeover after seeing my results. If you are in any doubt, you can be assured that this is a first class professional operation, and that all you need to worry about is basking in the sun in luxury surroundings during your convalescence.  Regards, Angela

Makeover Travel Awards & Recognitions

Plastic Surgery Tourism in Bolivia.

[...] Tourist numbers have increased year on year by around 20% since 2003, with Bolivia proving particularly popular with American visitors.

The number of US tourists is up by more than a quarter (29%) on last year, with an increasing number of North Americans coming for plastic surgery.

Bolivia has two major benefits, other than cost. First and foremost, its cosmetic surgeons are among some of the best in the world.

The majority of the Bolivian plastic surgeons are Double Board Certified by The "Bolivian Society of Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery" and "Brazilian Society of Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery". Some of them are also member of the The American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Bolivian plastic surgeons have good reason to be so skilled: domestic demand for breast implants, liposuction, laser surgery and nip-and-tuck treatments is sky high in this style-obsessed country.

From the middle class to upper class, one in 7 Bolivian women is estimated to have gone under the plastic surgeon's knife!

The second big draw is the country's reputation as an exotic tourist destination.

Makeover Travel is typical of the medical organisation specialized in health tourism that have opened in Santa Cruz de la Sierra -the economic capital of Bolivia- over recent years to cater for the medical tourism boom. Based in a smart three-storey office in the city's exclusive Equipetrol district, the company employs a dozen surgeons to work with its client base of foreign patients.

"We offer tailor-made services from beginning to end," explains the clinic's marketing coordinator, Monica Chavez. "We meet our patients at the airport, book their accommodation, arrange for them to meet the surgeon beforehand and then follow up with them once they return home."

Launched in 2002, MakeoverTravel has expanded on its initial Total Makeover packages with a wide range of different surgical procedures. Abdomen liposuction will set you back $1,000. Nose surgery or breast augmentation are priced at 1500 US$ and 2990 US$ with an All Inclusive package - Surgery and accommodation in a 5five stars hotel.

All the prices include hotel accommodation, airport transfers and travel advice. In addition, patients are assigned an English or French-speaking personal assistant for the length of their stay.The strategy is working. Makeover Travel attracts around 400 patients a year from all over the world. The majority come from the US, where the notion of medical tourism is more familiar than it is in Europe. The company also has a "significant number" of British patients, as well as clients from Spain, France and Canada.

Sonia Rivers, a Miami resident, admits to having been "very surprised" at the prices when she first inquired about nose procedure five months ago.

"If I went to a normal plastic surgeon in Miami it would cost me around $7,000, so I decided to do some research into other options," she says. [...]

Medical tourists should also be advised against planning physical activities after plastic surgery: doctors recommend being out of the sun for at least two months after invasive cosmetic surgery.

Most patients choose to fit in their travelling before their operation and then use the tail end of their holiday to rest and recuperate.

Discover a Paradise in the Heart of South America and Enjoy an Unforgettable Trip!

On desire We combine holidays.
Certain medical procedures and surgeries like cosmetic, plastic or elective surgery due to their nature and required post surgery care do not permit vacations.

But in case of certain treatments like Hair Transplant, Rhinoplasty, some face surgeries and Dental treatments where hospitalization is not required, Makeover Travel makes an arrangement to combine with beautiful and memorable holidays (discover Bolivia strictly as per medical advice).

Regardless of whether you choose to take a Rejuvenation Holiday before or after your surgical procedure(s) we can arrange the holiday of a lifetime for you – in stunningly beautiful settings where you can enjoy sensational accommodation, cuisine and fine wines.

We arrange for you tourist activities in the main cities of Bolivia and of course in Santa Cruz de la Sierra where our clinics, hospitals and medical centers are located.
