To become a plastic surgeon you must finish the medical career, undergo general surgery and after meeting these requirements go abroad to specialize in plastic and reconstructive surgery. In total there are 15 or more years of study to achieve this goal. The love of his career and service to others is one of the characteristics of Dr. Avila. During his residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery he has participated in the two largest breast reconstruction campaigns in patients suffering from cancer in Mexico, which were carried out in the hospital where he resided. Work carried out together with the team of doctors with a total of 319 reconstructive surgeries in a month, October 2016. The second with half of the previous number in 2018, has added experience and mastery in its technique.
