The lovely ladies of the Philippine Constabulary and Philippine National Police Retired Officers’ Ladies Organization Inc. (ROLAI) had a beautifully invigorating afternoon as they learned different beauty tips on how to look their best from none other than well-respected cosmetic surgeon and Belo Medical Group (BMG) founder and medical director Dr. Vicki Belo. The doctor to the stars also discussed the most popular Belo procedures among the clinic’s massive women clientele during the said talk held at the PNPOLC Clubhouse in Camp Crame.
Making the afternoon even more interesting was the question and answer segment of the seminar wherein Dr. Belo gamely shared her knowledge about the recent advancements in the field of medical aesthetics. Indeed, the hardworking doctor is determined to make the Philippines as the beauty capital of Asia.
