About Dr. Carole Azzam

My studies

I was born in the city of Liège in Belgium, where I grew up and studied medicine at the University of Liège. During my senior year, I was accepted at the prestigious Harvard Medical School in Boston, and undertook surgery internships.

My surgical training began with three years of general surgery (gastrointestinal, vascular and orthopedic surgeries), followed by three years of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, surgery for burns, hand surgery and microsurgery. I had the opportunity to spend a one-year internship with world-renowned Professors Jacques Baudet and Dominique Martin, in Bordeaux, France.

After my assistantship, I was fortunate to work for Professor Albert De Mey, in the Brugmann Hospital, Brussels, Belgium, renowned for breast surgery.

A passionate learner...

Passionate and always eager to diversify and improve my techniques, I frequently traveled to rub elbows with specialists from around the world: Paris, New York, Atlanta, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba, San Francisco...

As plastic surgery is always changing, it is essential to keep abreast of new techniques and studies.
