I've been at goal for a year now and am ready for a breast implant revision (had the same ones for 31 yrs now). I'm going for a consult in June with a local doc, but was wondering if anyone has had plastics done in Mexico. If so, by whom, what did you have done, what was the cost, and were you concerned at all about your safety? Any other information would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help!

Check out Dr. Sauceda ! ! ! He's the guy I've researched extensively. I have yet to find one dissatisfied patient, or major complications.

I agree with Sauceda in Monterrey. I've been seeing his name for yrs now on OH and have researched him myself. Seems good and very reasonably priced and highly recommended by his patients and other surgeons.

Are you set on a certain city in Mexico? Have you considered Tijuana?

I don't mean to be rude, but I was asking for replies from members of this board who have already had plastic surgery in Mexico. I am not interested in having a dialogue with a doctor or his group. Thanks!

I apologize, I was merely offering pointers and advice from somebody that knows many doctors in the area. Best of luck in your endeavors!! Have a great day.

So I guess my answer, for this board, is no. I assume most people are still in the losing stage and not ready for this yet. I guess I'll stick with my local docs. Living in the DFW area I'm fortunate to have access to some of the best in the country, so I may as well take advantage of it, even if it will cost a bit more. Thanks everyone -

TexasT please do relay back to us your results/experience. I will be looking for input in the future and this board is certainly lacking the the Plastics area.
