Victoria “Vicki” Gonzalez Belo-Kho is known as one of the most trusted names when it comes to cosmetic surgery. She rose to fame for catering local celebrities to retain or improve their physical appearance.
Today, the 63-year-old celebrity doctor had established the Belo Medical Group in such a way that competitors will have a hard time catching up.
But unknown to many, Dra. Vicki Belo was once a victim of bulying and this childhood experience motivated her to find success in her chosen field.
According to her story, she had acne at the age of 16 until her late 30s which affected her self esteem.
But aside from that, she also experienced being bulied by her peers for being overweight.
All these insecurities pushed her to find a cure for herself, which led her to become a skin expert and eventually build her empire.
Now, Dra. Vicki Belo gets regular botox injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on her skin and takes care of her body through a healthy lifestyle and exercise.
Despite her age, the cosmetic surgeon stayed stylish with all her designer clothes that never fail to amaze her Instagram followers. Some of her favorite brands are Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Emilio Pucci, Moschino, and Hermes
She said that she considers clothes as a “mood enhancer… a fun thing.” “When I’m sad, I put on a happy color then I feel better.”
Dra. Vicki Belo studied Medicine and Surgery at the University of Sto. Tomas (UST) and received a diploma from the Institute of Dermatology in Bangkok, Thailand until she became the power figure behind the Belo Medical Group.
The cosmetic surgeon founded her first clinic at the Medical Towers in Makati in 1990 and was the first to introduce liposuction and lasers in the Philippines.
She is also an active lecturer/speaker in several organizations related to cosmetic surgery not only in the Philippines but also abroad.
