Botched Tummy Tuck in Peru

Victoria Castañeda-Vargas

Episode Two of the Plastic Surgeon Podcast delves into the story of Dr. Sajan’s patient, Victoria Castañeda Vargas. Victoria underwent a tummy tuck in Peru that left her botched and unhappy with her body. Not only did the surgery leave her unhappy, but she experienced intense complications that left her in pain even a year after surgery.

Prior to her botched tummy tuck, Victoria had liposuction from the same Peruvian surgeon. Years later,  after having children, she needed a tummy tuck to correct the trauma pregnancy and childbirth put the body through. She chose to go back to the same surgeon for her tummy tuck surgery. Victoria’s journey includes botched surgery, personal confidence, and the way a Latin American woman’s body is viewed in the United States.
