Dr. Vicki Belo
Dr. Victoria Belo is currently the President and Medical Director of Belo Medical Group. She obtained her Bachelor of Science from the University of the Philippines, Diliman campus, and completed her Degree of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Sto. Tomas. She later got her Diploma in Dermatology from the Institute of Dermatology in Bangkok, Thailand.
Dr. Belo furthers her studies in Dermatologic and Laser Surgery in California, Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, and at St. Francis Memorial Hospital in the University of California at San Francisco. She has 3 children, Quark Henares and Cristalle Henares from her former husband, Atom Henares; and Scarlet Snow Belo, with partner Hayden Kho.
In 1990, Dr. Belo opened her first clinic at the Medical Towers in Makati. Pioneering Liposuction and Lasers in the country, Dr. Belo managed to expand her business by putting up Belo Medical Group, now with 11 clinics in Metro Manila (including the newest clinic in S Maison Conrad Manila Hotel), 1 in Cebu and 1 in Davao. In 2014, Dr. Belo launched one of the fruits of her hard work, the Belo Building, in Greenhills, San Juan City.
She has the charisma which stems from her deep understanding of people’s aspiration to look and feel beautiful. She believes that beauty should not be limited to a chosen few who were gifted with good genes. From the onset of the business and up to today Dr. Belo has tirelessly conducted lectures to both small and large groups because she firmly believed that if people are educated about their skin and body, and the benefits of dermatological and cosmetic procedures, the more likely they will be interested to try them. She decided to use a more casual approach in these talks and use simple words and analogies to explain each procedure. She was able to bring “dermatology” out of the hospital and into casual conversations among friends. Her efforts successfully changed the perception of cosmetic surgery and dermatology, to not only be acceptable to a regular Filipino but aspirational.
