I am 7 weeks out from having a lower body lift and could not be happier, Here is a review of my Plastic Surgeon that did my surgery.

My Plastic Surgeon

After spending nearly a year looking for just the right Board Certified, Plastic Surgeon to perform my lower body lift, I decided to take a chance and follow that inner voice inside that was leading me to Dr. Victor Gutierrez in Tijuana Mexico. Trained in Israel, where the standards are so very high, I was intrigued.... Previously I had gone to a much larger, fancier clinic for the first procedures that I had done, the year before, and although I really loved the clinic and the other doctor, I found my work not to be up to standard it should have been. How did I learn this, well every PS I consulted for the upcoming LBL surgery, all told me I needed to look into revisions. Then when I spoke to Dr. Gutierrez he offered to fix some of these problems so I didn't have to go back to the original PS. That was a really nice gesture, but not enough to sway me as now I had become very picky about the cut lines and the sewing, all learned the hard way. I started looking at his results, and personally calling his patients, they all told the same story about a Surgeon, who becomes more like family member, and cares for you in such a manor. One who rather than just send a driver personally picks you up at the Airport. Spending several hours doing a mark up, checking and rechecking. And one who will not take chances by "doing whatever" a patient requests but rather takes the time to explain why certain things should or should not be done. A Doctor that takes his time to make the best cuts possible and takes his time with the sewing so you look perfect. And one who simply will not operate on you if your blood levels are just not where they should be. You Know you are in very confident hands. And most incredibly a doctor that operates in such a manor that he says you will not be in pain. So could all this really be true? I knew the pictures did not lie, and I trusted what these patients told me so I took a leap of faith and went with a Doctor that does not operate out of a big fancy clinic, but rather a nice smaller clinic that has everything needed for a great outcome. I could not be happier, I took a chance on a doctor who may not have as many reviews as other Doctors but one who has the highest rating from all his patients. I found everything these previous patients had told to be true and even the part about the pain. I am three days out from surgery and feeling great. I could not be happier. My aftercare is wonderful too, the nurses take the best care of me, couldn't be better...Now I must spend some time to talk about his patient coordinator Elsa, she is the sweetest, nicest person that will go the extra mile, to make sure your every need is taken care of. This is not a 9 to 5 job for her, she literally takes her work home with her as she is available 24/7 for what ever you need before, during and after your surgery when you return home. I promise if you decide to make Dr Victor Gutierrez your Plastic Surgeon, you will not be disappointed!
