My Passion

I was born and raised in Venezuela in a family of surgeons of all kinds. Growing up in such an environment made me discover my passion for medicine and for helping others. During the long years of medical studies and practice, I was able to explore many of the different areas of this beautiful career. However, I very quickly fell in love with Aesthetic Medicine because of the big impact that small transformations had on my patients’ self-confidence.

My Credo

I believe that aesthetic medicine is not a tool to achieve a standard of perfect beauty but to achieve the confidence necessary to achieve everything that we propose in life.

I believe that aesthetic medicine does not attempt to counter the natural process of aging but aims to slow down this process and alleviate its visible signs.

I believe that aesthetic medicine must be sufficiently noticeable for the patient to see and feel the change, but subtle enough so that those around cannot decipher it.

I believe that aesthetic medicine is more of an art than an exact science since each patient is unique and, therefore, applying recipes never brings the same results.

My Goals

In 2008, I co-founded CELAN, Venezuela's pioneering medical practice seamlessly merging aesthetic medicine and photonic medicine. With our innovative and highly personalized approach, we earned the trust of over a thousand patients.

Due to the challenges in my home country, I relocated my family to the United States, where I now call home. In Miami, I established a practice that proudly bears my name, Mariela Cogorno, MD. Mirroring the success of CELAN, I am committed to growing this practice by providing the latest technologies, the most effective treatments, and cutting-edge cosmetic services within state-of-the-art facilities, all while earning the trust of my patients.
