Dr. Blas García, who has been practicing in Tenerife since 2016, won the award for the best plastic and facial surgeon in Europe on December 4 at the European Awards in Medicine 2019 held in Paris and organized by the publication El Suplemento . On the 19th of this month, the Secretary of State of the Ministry of Health has also recognized him as the best plastic surgeon in rhinoplasty in Spain.
García graduated in Medicine from the University of Córdoba in 2010 and specialized in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the Reina Sofía University Hospital, obtaining the National End of Residence Award for the best career, awarded by the Spanish Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. In addition, he has complemented this training with two master’s degrees, one in Aesthetic Medicine (with honors) and the other in Research Methodology in Health Sciences. He is also founder and president of the Spanish Society of Facial Plastic Surgery.
For three years, he has been a specialist in facial surgery in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Tacoronte, specifically at the Vithas Hospital and the Tara Clinic. García is internationally recognized for the use of ultrasonic rhinoplasty, which has revolutionized this field in Spain, a technique that works through ultrasound (invisible to the patient).
García explained that with this technique it only acts on the nasal bones and does not damage “any other structure”, such as “the mucosa, muscles or blood vessels.” Furthermore, “the precision of the cuts is much greater” and it is possible to perform the operation “under local anesthesia, without the need for hospital admission.”
