Evaldo D'Assumpcao

With 32 years devoted to plastic surgery, he is one of the pioneers in plastic surgery in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. After all that time, Dr. D'Assumpcao still has a young disposition and a scholar's heart when he talks about the subject of plastic surgery.

A cheerful man who finds happiness in life, Dr. D'Assumpcao speaks with the typical modesty of the great professionals who have enriched the history of medicine since the time of Hippocrates.

"I recommend Dermatique for facial surgeries because, let me remark, that the surgical procedure is not the solution; you have to complete it by recovering the texture of the skin with Dermatique."

Dr. D'Assumpcao is married, 57 years old, with three children and two grandchildren. He considers himself a fortunate man who can't thank God enough for what He's given him. Dr. D'Assumpcao truly adores his grandchildren.

Evaldo D'Assumpcao completed his medical studies at the Federal University of Minas Gerais in 1963. He was a member of the team of physicians of plasic surgeon Olendino Ferreira Prados, one of the forerunners in the field in the state of Minas Gerais. He performed his surgical techniques together with professor Joao Rezende Alves for two years and completed his training in the United States, in Houston, Texas, under Thomas Cronin, M.D., a world-renowned pioneer of breast prostheses.

He is, furthermore, a multifaceted individual, having published no fewer than 16 books, some in the medical field, others dealing with historic, psychological and religious topics.

Since 1964, Dr. D'Assumpcao has practiced in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Here is an interview with Dr. D'Assumpca

When and how did you have your first contact with Dermatique?

I have already taken part in approximately 200 scientific events throughout the country and abroad. During one of those meetings, at the beginning of the 90's, in Southern Brazil, I had my first contact with Dermatique. I confess that at the beginning I would sort of scratch my head when I heard the comments made by certain fellow doctors who said that the products would be highly effective. At the beginning I could not believe that the product could deliver on everything that was being advertised. One of my colleagues asserted, categorically, that he had used Dermatique and had great results.

I got hold of a sample and gave it to my wife Gislaine, who was also very skeptical in regard to the new product. Gislaine then recommended Dermatique to an old girlfriend, who had highly positive results. Subsequently, at the Plastic Surgery and Obesity Symposium that took place in Belo Horizonte in May 1993, I won four bottles of the product in a raffle, at the Gigabyte stand, and at that time my wife lost her skepticism, used Dermatique, and was very pleased with the results. I cautiously started to use Dermatique Cell Renewal Formula with some patients, and the results were very good, not only objectively but subjectively.

On what patients do you use Dermatique?

There are basically two groups: the first group involves aesthetic conditions, such as eyelid surgery, rhytidoplasties and mammaplasties, which are the most common in my clinic. I would like to emphasize that I only perform these types of surgery when they are in fact necessary, since there is a moral obligation on my part toward the patient. Repair surgeries make up the second group.

Have you already used Dermatique together with glycolic acid or other acids?

In cases involving aesthetic surgery I used the 10% glycolic acid and Dermatique, treating both the skin and the actual surgery at the same time. In facial surgeries, I also indicate the use of Dermatique, since a surgical procedure by itself is not the solution; you must complete it with the recovery of the skin's texture. Dermatique is highly effective in repair surgeries, especially for burns or those that require big incisions.

How would you presently grade Dermatique in regard to helping the process of healing and preventing hypertrophic scars and keloids?

As excellent! The results are also highly positive in improving the scars' aesthetics.

In short, how do you rate the Dermatique product?

You can assess the confidence I place on Dermatique by the high volume of the product used by my patients. It's very high, and it could be even higher if all patients to whom I recommend it would acquire the product.

What type of reception have your patients given to Dermatique?

The best possible. To this date I have not heard of any claim, of any side-effect, of any negative reaction that could be attributed to this product. All my patients are fully satisfied with the results.
