Dr. Hoyos and his associates have performed more than 1500 procedures with reliable, consistent, and safe results. Dr. Hoyos continues to refine these techniques as well as to develop and create new applications of HDL to additional anatomical regions. Furthermore, he has extensive experience as a lecturer and trainer for both VASER and Smartlipo. Dr Hoyos is also a medical illustrator, painter, and sculptor.
