Dr. Cynthia M. Lopez graduated from the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center, School of Medicine in the Philippines, in 1982. Soon after, she began a family practice residency at the U.S Naval Hospital in Subic Bay, Philippines, where she focused on obstetrics and gynecology. After her training she returned to her hometown, a small rural community where many of her friends and relatives still lived. Determined to give back to the place where she grew up, Dr. Cynthia set up a small clinic in her hometown and began to provide medical care for many of its inhabitants who normally could not afford it.
After three years she traveled to the United States and obtained a medical license after training at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, IL. While at Cook County she met Frank Lopez, another physician there, and whom she married. The couple moved to California and settled down in Fresno in 1993, with plans of starting a family. Within a few years they had five children, four rowdy boys and a girl. At the same time, they built a family health clinic together and began seeing people from all walks of life.
Dr. Cynthia discovered Cosmetic Medicine in 2007 when she sought a local plastic surgeon to help her look better for her 25th medical school reunion. She was 51 at that time and the undeniable signs of aging could not be hidden anymore. The recommendation for a face lift did not appeal to her. Many of her classmates who had face lifts looked a little odd and unnatural. The mid-face are is stretched out but the wrinkles around the eyes and mouth remained. After researching and attending numerous seminars on Cosmetic Medicine, she realized that one does not have to go through plastic surgery to look better.
Dr. Cynthia has trained with only the best in the field of Cosmetic Medicine within the United States and outside the United States so as to better equip her with the latest techniques, tools and technologies that could bring out the best physical beauty attainable by her patients without surgery.
Dr. Cynthia's expertise in improving even the worst acne scars is second to none. She is the go-to cosmetic surgeon for somebody who has gone all over the place and found no solution. In most cases, these patients have undergone light therapy, laser treatments, Fraxels, chemical peels, Blue peels, Vi-peels, surgical interventions, steroid injections, creams and products. After spending lots of time and money for these treatments, the scars are still there and in some cases, even worse. Dr. Cynthia is an acne scar miracle worker and you will know why when you see the before and after results of her own patients.
Everyone and everything in the universe has a natural beauty potential. By adhering to the principles of the "Divine Proportion", this natural beauty can be released from anything, even from the most un-appealing object. Dr. Cynthia was a painter in her college years. She was taught a long time ago that all beautiful faces and bodies, regardless of race, age, sex, and other variables conform to the Divine Proportion. Had she not been a doctor, she would have been a painter. Applying the same principles of the "Divine Proportion" to her own patients, she can release the hidden beauty that is inherent in everyone…hidden by sagging skin, wrinkles, deflated face, excess fat, etc.
Lately, she added body sculpting to her list of passions. She trained under world renowned experts in this field. Dr. Cynthia is the Valley's only Vaser 4D HiDef Lipo cosmetic surgeon. She trained under Dr. Alfredo Hoyos of Bogota, Colombia — the world's most sought after trainer of this revolutionary body contouring procedure.
While Dr. Cynthia has trained with many top lipo-sculptors and tummy tuck experts, her training with Dr. Hoyos catapulted her skills to the highest level. Dr. Cynthia is now able to provide results beyond that of standard liposuction. Men and women who want to achieve the athletic definition they've always dreamed of in a way that is natural, safe and physically coveted is now available in our Rejuvimed facility.
