HPA Magazine 14Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery
The HPA Health Group and the Up Clinic started a new health and aesthetic project that aims to be a reference in the various regions where HPA operates. With this in mind, a concept of plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine was created and a brand developed that aims to serve all those looking for rejuvenation, correction and facial or body remodelling treatment.
The new UP HPA brand, reflects the strong commitment of the HPA Group and the Up Clinic and has resulted in the consolidation of an already existing relationship. The Up Clinic was already working in the various Units of the HPA Group in the Algarve, with aesthetic medicine consultations and treatment and all aesthetic surgeries. The Up Clinic has been operating in recent years at the Gambelas Hospital, Alvor Hospital and at the São Gonçalo Hospital in Lagos as well as at the Clínica Particular in Vilamoura.
The purpose of the Up Clinic is to make everyone's dreams and wishes come true in relation to their body, resulting in physical, psychological and social well-being, with total respect for each one’s individua-
lity, improving self-esteem and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
Taking advantage of the synergy between the international specialization of Up Clinic as a partner of national reference in aesthetics and the quality and coverage of the HPA Group, this new project was born, offering a guarantee in excellence, as a health care and well-being provider.
The UP HPA medical team will be led by two specialists from the UP Clinic Team, both national references;
in Plastic Surgery Dr Tiago Baptista Fernandes and in Aesthetic Medicine Dr Vítor Figueiredo, both excellent professionals with extensive experience. Several professionals from both the Up Clinic and the HPA Group will be integrating the UP HPA medical team.
Focused on continuous specialization, UP HPA will also be promoting various training sessions for employees of the Group, as well several information meetings aimed at our patients.
