“Committed to Quality Care”

To provide you integrated health services and total security during the surgical and any procedure requiring anaesthesia, all the hospitals and private clinics we have selected are the best and at the forefront of medical services.
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 5 hospitals and private clinics with 16 specialized medical units, and 23 complementary health-related facilities.


 All our Hospitals, Private Clinics and Medical Centres 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 clinics and hospitals are the largest, and the most specialized centres in Bolivia for plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. 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.



If things look different with Makeover Travel, it’s because our Group is the premier integrated health company in Bolivia by providing access to the highest quality healthcare at a competitive price for foreign patients.
We are the largest healthcare provider in Bolivia, and one of the most renowned plastic surgery provider in the world.
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.


Our clinics and hospitals provide you:

  • Room in total comfort with air-conditioned, telephone, and cable TV.

  • Fully equipped operation rooms, pre-anesthesia and post-anesthesia 
    recovery units, with all the services.

  • Intensive therapy units.

  • All kinds of laboratories.

  • The latest technology in image diagnosis.

  • Theatre for septic surgery in casualty area.  

  • Modern Anaesthesia machines & monitoring devices.

  • Dedicated Anesthesiologist team.


  • All of the necessary equipment and apparatus to assure the ventilation, asepsis, antisepsis and sterilization of all of the areas, equipment and instruments used in the clinic. 


  • A complete medical team to assist the plastic surgeons with solid international medical training, supported by highly-qualified and well-trained nursing personnel, and permanent staff willing to offer warm, efficient attention to the patient.


  • All the requirements demanded by the law for
      their operation; and
    highest technological
      equipment such as diagnosis and bioresonance,
      echography, pantomography for full face x-rays
      and a full range of state of the art lasers
    .
     
    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.

Health Tourism, Medical Tourism, Health Tours

Health Tours, Health Tourism, Medical Tourism… are terms that had risen from the rapid growth of international healthcare where people from all around the world are traveling to other countries to obtain general medical surgery, cosmetic plastic surgery and dental surgery at a fraction of the cost of healthcare in the USA, Canada and Europe. At the same time as receiving surgery abroad, patients can experience the excitement and adventure of the cultural attractions their destination country offers.
Overseas surgery is quickly becoming a safe and viable option to healthcare in the United States, Canada and Europe.

There are many reasons for the increased popularity of medical tours:
• Exorbitant healthcare costs in industrialized nations
• Long waiting lists for surgery in countries offering socialized healthcare
• Ease and affordability of international travel
• Favorable currency exchange rates in foreign countries resulting in low cost surgery
• Rapidly improving technology and standards of care in many countries
• Proven safety of healthcare in select foreign nations
• International accreditation of foreign hospitals and private clinics
More and more people are traveling abroad as an affordable, enjoyable, and safe alternative to having medical, dental, and cosmetic surgical procedures done in their home countries.

It has been mentioned that medical tours, sometimes referred to as medical tourism, medical travel, or, health tourism, is expected to become a mulit-billion dollar industry by 2012. Whether you call it medical tours, medical tourism, medical travel, or, health tourism, the concept is the same. It appears as though this concept of traveling abroad to receive health care is going to become a viable option for many years to come.

Many options exist for the medical tourism patient - from purely elective procedures such as face lift, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and LASIK, to more serious procedures such as gastric bypass surgery. Medical tourists can now obtain essentially any type of medical or surgical procedure abroad in a safe and effective manner for a fraction of the cost that they would face in America or Europe. The cost savings are enormous!

Although "Health Tourism" has been the descriptor for this new emerging industry, it is important to know that Makeover Travel has a different philosophy on the concept of traveling abroad to receive your surgery. We understand the seriousness of receiving high quality medical care and then allowing your body to recuperate from the surgery. No gimmicks...no marketing hype. The tourism part of the process should be viewed as the least important factor.

Many companies are using the term "medical tourism" as a motivator to attract clients into this new emerging concept of overseas medical care, we do not. To effectively become the leader in providing healthcare abroad, our emphasis is placed on the efficacy of our hospital partners regardless of the physical location of their facility. In this respect, we will remain the leader of facilitating global healthcare in a safe and affordable manner.

A word of caution: Be very careful if attempting to plan your own medical travel program. There are many issues that are not apparent to the first time medical tourist. One small oversight can be the difference between a successful and unsuccessful surgery abroad. By working with a full service medical tourism service agency, you will greatly reduce the possibilities of something going wrong. Take this process of health tourism very seriously. After all, it's your health and welfare!

What is accreditation and what are the benefits?
Accreditation is a process in which an entity, separate and distinct from the health care organization, usually non-governmental, assess the health care organization to determine if it meets a set of standards requirements designed to improve quality of care. Accreditation is usually voluntary. Accreditation standards are usually regarded as optimal and achievable. Accreditation provides a visible commitment by an organization to improve the quality of patient care, to ensure a safe environment and to continually work to reduce risks to patients and staff. Accreditation has gained worldwide attention as an effective quality evaluation and management tool.

What is the
Joint Commission International (JCI)?
JCI Accreditation probably represents the "gold standard" for international credentialing. The Joint Commission has been incredibly influential in the U.S. in terms of quality control of medical organizations and their seal of accreditation is seen as a defining indicator of a well run hospital.
"In response to growing interest in accreditation and quality improvement worldwide, the Joint Commission launched its international accreditation program in 1999. Joint Commission International accreditation standards are based on international consensus standards and set uniform, achievable expectations for structures, processes and outcomes for hospitals. The accreditation process is designed to accommodate specific legal, religious and cultural factors within a country.
Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation can help international health care organizations, public health agencies, health ministries and others to evaluate, improve and demonstrate the quality of patient care in their nations."

How does ISO apply to healthcare?
The International Organization for Standardization is an international agency with close to one hundred member countries.
Quality in healthcare is more important today than ever before. Today's health care consumers are better informed and participate in the care they receive. This has increased the awareness that the quality of service delivered is dependent not only on the hands-on practitioners, but also on every individual within the organization whose activities contribute in some way. The current trend toward public accountability continues to be one of the major factors driving the momentous changes in the health care industry.
Added value of ISO in healthcare is gained by:
Understanding and awareness of quality organization-wide
Ensuring continued use of quality system
Improving documentation and records
Strengthening supplier and customer confidence
Yielding cost savings
Providing a foundation for improvement within Total Quality Management (TQM)
