Doctor's Profile

Dr. Alfredo Longo is a perfect example of the brightest young Guatemalan doctors who graduated from one of  the best plastic surgery programs in this decade, mastering the latest high-tech medical procedures that may not have even been considered only a generation ago.

Plastic surgeons are experts at performing cosmetic procedures that enhance the beauty of the human form. For example, Dr. Longo excels at sculpting perfect noses, a procedure known as rhinoplasty. With the eye of an artist and the technology of medical science, he can form the contours – higher, narrower, lower – that are lovely and balanced within the facial frame of each individual person.

Breast enhancement could mean lifting, or enlarging with implants, or reducing the tissue. Again, perfectly molded with the eye of an artist. State-of-the-art surgical techniques demand the highest quality surgical materials, like implants from world-famous brands Polytech from Germany and Motiva from Costa Rica. Dr. Longo explains, “The latest silicone gel implants give excellent results in comfort, motion and sensation – better than the saline implants from years ago.”

Dr. Longo is also experienced in reconstructive procedures like recreating tissue that has been lost due to cancer excision or establishing natural-looking hand structure after a disfiguring accident. The patient receives the best possible long-term outcome when various surgeons collaborate, when needed, to assure success in mechanical function, physical integration, and the final natural-looking appearance.

For your consultation, exam and planning session, be prepared to spend some time to chat with Dr. Longo. He wants to take all the time you need, to discuss the the long-term success that you will achieve together, until you have the doctor’s confirmation that the final result will be as close as possible to your expectations, and exactly what you need.

Ultimately, your safety and satisfaction are most important to the doctor. He does not accept any unnecessary or risky procedures. If your medical condition is not at 100% then he might ask for additional testing, or require an internal specialist to join the procedure.

Dr. Longo says,“Su seguridad es mi seguridad.” “Your security is my security.” Every detail of the preparation and approval of your procedure is precisely analyzed so that your recovery will give you the beautiful, healthy results that you will both be proud of.

I am very happy with the breast augmentation I had done in Guatemala. Dr. Longo was patient and understanding of what I was looking for and he worked with me to find the right implants for my desires. He was very knowledgeable about the different types of implants and the sizing and how that would impact my breast size. The surgery went very well and I am beyond happy with the results. I would recommend him to anyone thinking of having a procedure done with him.

Charity, Public Service, Donations

Public service and caring for the less fortunate is a way of life in the Latin American culture

Dr. Alfredo Longo has been a plastic surgery member of the surgical staff of Roosevelt Hospital in Guatemala City since 2014. Roosevelt is a public hospital, where medical services are limited, not like what we are used to in more fortunate areas of the city. In this hospital, Dr. Longo performs reconstructive surgery to correct agricultural and industrial injuries: making flaps for covering wounds and replacing damaged muscle and skin. Dr. Longo is devoted to restoring quality of life for his patients to the best of his ability, at no cost to those who need it most.
