Dr Carmen Montano received her Medicine and Surgery Degree from the Universidad Libre in Colombia South America.
She then completed a 3 year residency program in Internal Medicine at New Hanover Memorial Hospital in Wilmington North Carolina and is Board Certified in Internal Medicine in the USA .
She Moved to NM in 1992 and practiced as Primary Care Physician from 1992 to 2013.
Due to the epidemic of Obesity and Diabetes, she developed interest in weight loss management and became a Diplomate in Bariatric Medicine.
“The advances in technology and medicines are helping us to live longer but we are not prepared to look older”
As a result of living longer, the aging population continues being active in the workforce for longer years.
Older folks need to compete and present themselves with a vibrant look for job interviews.
Trying to fulfill these needs, Dr Montano attended numerous Aesthetic Medicine courses throughout the United States, some of them with the world famous plastic surgeon Dr Joseph Niamtu.
She also attended the first International Congress on Longevity Medicine and Aesthetic Procedures in Geneva, Switzerland
Dr Montano opened her Aesthetic Medical Procedures practice in 2008 and continued the practice of Internal Medicine as a Primary Care Physician.
When she retired from Primary Care, she expanded her Aesthetic Medicine practice, but, not ready to give up her Extensive experience in Internal Medicine, she started consulting for Hospice patients and now she is also a Board Certified Hospice Medical Director.
By combining both practices, she accomplishes both goals: she relieves the pain of the terminally ill patients and relieves the emotional stress that some “aging” conscious people develop, by improving the looks and self esteem of those who finally understand …that taking care of their skin and their looks is not only vanity, but rather a legitimate desire to feel better with themselves in order to face the world.
