I had heard that Dr. Ortiz was fabulous from a good friend of mine.  She really did her research all over the States and saw that he had actually trained several of the surgeons here.  His prices were great and he was great so she and I both went there!  Unfortunately, there are no doctors in my area who will work on someone who's had their surgery done in Mexico, so I went to a PA in a town 40 miles away to get my fills.  She does it by sound and I've had fairly good success with her.  I've had many unfills trying to get it to that magic spot.  I recently was in Mexico and went for a check up under flouroscopy and learned that my pouch is very enlarged and got an unfill.  Dr. So is hoping that the swelling will go down in 7 weeks.  I'm concerned about gaining a sizeable amount of weight back in that time!  I'm happy to have come on here to see that there is a good physician in SLC to go to for my fills from here on out.  He offers flouroscopy and is with Fill Centers USA.
