Brazilian Hospital Gives Plastic Surgery to the Poor

Brazil is one of the top destinations in the world for plastic surgery. No doubt, you’ve heard of the world famous “Brazilian Butt Lift.” Neither one of these facts would be possible without the help of the country’s most famous surgeon,?Dr. Ivo Pitanguy. While the butt lift procedure is certainly a welcome addition to the world, the true legacy left behind by Dr. Pitanguy was his belief that plastic surgery should not just be for the rich and famous. He dedicated his life to making sure that surgery was also available to the poor in Brazil. Dr. Pitanguy was so cherished in Brazil that he carried the Olympic torch in March of this year before passing away the very next day. Like the Olympic spirit in Rio, Dr. Pitanguy’s legacy will live on forever. Watch this short video to learn more about the famous surgeon’s philanthropic life
