Doctor Luiztoledo


Doctor Luiz Toledo is known and respected as an innovator in the surgical techniques of facial rejuvenation and body contouring. His skills as an international Plastic Surgeon combined with his artistic sensitivity and the latest technology, have helped thousands of his patients look younger and feel better.

A highly sought after lecturer, Dr. Toledo demonstrates to his colleagues both nationally and internationally, his techniques for re-contouring the face and body, with the removal and replacement of localized fat. A pioneer in fat grafting surgery the Dr. has now been practicing and lecturing about the techniques intricacies for the past 30 years. It was Dr. Toledo who introduced to the world his technique of buttock augmentation using the patient’s own fat reserves, later being termed the Brazilian Buttock technique now incorporated into many of his body contouring procedures. His other interest is in the development of minimally invasive techniques in aesthetic surgery. Using small incisions and with minimal trauma he can produce dramatic results in the face and body, with lasting effect and fast recovery.

Invited to practice in the Gulf region more than 11 years ago required the fine-tuning of specific surgical skills for techniques not often looked for in his native Brazil. Dr. Toledo is one of the few surgeons in Dubai who specializes in the full body lift surgery sought by patients wanting to further change the shape of their body after massive weight loss usually post gastric banding. Dr. Toledo’s patient base spans 120 different countries.

The latest technology is offered to his younger pre facelift patients looking for non surgical facial rejuvenation procedures. For his mature patients the traditional facelift with muscle repair and volume repositioning will be indicated with delicate scar positioning so as to be virtually imperceptible.

He is one of the key developers of Superficial Liposculpture, a refined technique to improve the results of body surgery. Dr. Toledo performs all types of aesthetic & plastic surgery, including the more traditional techniques, the majority undertaken in a high-tech hospital in Dubai. Dr. Toledo was one of the first doctors to utilize computer imaging in his consultations, allowing the patient to see an instant simulation of the proposed result of the procedure.

His two books by Springer-Verlag, were important milestones in showing new plastic surgery techniques. The manual “Superficial Liposculpture” was considered one of the most important textbooks of plastic surgery of the nineties. “Circumareolar Techniques for Breast Surgery”  explains the limits of this important  technique. Invited by Lippencott-Raven to write a personal “how I do it” text book, the publication, “Refinements in Facial and Body Contouring” can be found on the bookshelves of many Plastic Surgeons and medical libraries and has been translated into several languages.

Dr. Toledo has edited 12 plastic surgery textbooks, contributed 11 chapters to other surgeons’ books and published more than 70 scientific papers in Brazilian and International publications. He has given more than 110 teaching courses and organized 52 international congresses and symposiums, given 11 live surgery teaching courses and lectured in 37 different countries. Since being elected the Scientific Director of the Emirates Plastic Surgery Society Dr. Toledo has organized over  29 monthly meetings  meaning the Plastic Surgeons of the region now have a platform to present their work to their colleagues.

A popular television talk show guest, Dr. Toledo has appeared on talk shows in the United States, Brazil and Dubai and features in magazines published throughout the world, including American and British Vogue, Elle, Allure amongst others.
