Born in Chile in 1959, Dr. Valdés attended for his primary and secondary education Colegio San Luis in Antofagasta. He therefore considers himself "nortino de tomo y lomo" ("a full-bodied man from the North").
He then studied Medicine at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago specializing between 1983 and 1986 in the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Dr. Valdés has since then worked as a plastic surgeon for over 25 years. He currently shares his professional and personal activities between Chile and Spain, where he opened his own Clinic.
To date, Dr. Valdés has treated more than 20.000 patients of 40 nationalities from every continent.
