Dr. Tania Medina has leaned towards beauty, skincare and the improvement of the feminine figure since she began participating in several beauty contests and was elected in 2000 as Miss Dominican Republic, USA. She also won the Queen International Contest and received the Miss American Continent title, in 2001. In 2006 she was the first Dominican selected as a Miss World finalist and was also among the 10 finalists of the Miss Universe Dominican Republic. At the time of choosing a profession, she decided to enter the School of Medicine at the Technological Institute of Santo Domingo (INTEC), where she achieved the highest honors and graduated with the title “Doctor of Medicine” Summa Cum Laude.
She completed an internship and prepared for the National Medical Residency Competition at the Dr. Salvador Gautier Hospital, where she obtained the highest grade achieved from any of the participants in the competition that year, until that moment.
Dr. Tania Medina Collado graduated as an Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon from the prestigious National Residence of Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Aesthetics at the Dr. Salvador Gautier Hospital, where she was recognized by the authorities as one of the best students in her years as a Resident Specialist.
Dr. Medina has done many international rotations, one of the highlights was at the Clínica de Labios y Paladar Hendido (Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic) in Michoacán, Mexico, at the Morelia’s Children’s Hospital. There, she trained in pediatric facial anomalies treatments and learned how to give back their smiles to children with this condition. In the United States, she attended the rotation at the Peck Center, with Dr. George Peck, a renowned surgeon for nasal aesthetic surgery techniques (rhinoplasty), where she acquired this knowledge and put it to practice in our country. She has also done multiple courses of massive weight loss surgery (post-bariatric) since these cases require special handling.
Today, she is a member of the Dominican Medical Association and a candidate for becoming a member in the Dominican Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (SODOCIPRE), of the American Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery (ASAPS), American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), International Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery (ISAPS), Ibero Latin American Federation of Plastic Surgery (FILAP) and the Dominican Medical College (CMD).
