Tummy Tuck in Mexico...Any recommendations?



Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody,

Wondering if anyone could me some recommendations on plastic surgeons in Mexico. I would like to get a Tummy Tuck and possibly, a breast lift. I was a Sleeve Revision last September in Tijuana with Dr. Ortiz and would do it again in a heartbeat! So, I know that I get excellent care in Mexico... am looking for recommendations on doctors. Also, if you had your tummy tuck in Mexico... how long did you stay in country? Any doctors to avoid?

Thank you for your help!

Dottie

Dr Sauceda has a huge fan club - many people who have gone to him and are very happy with their results.

I have finally decided to stay local... I know that there are excellent surgeons outside the usa, but plastics scare me and i just want to be close to home.

Any other reviews about Dr. Sauceda? I like the idea of going to Monterrey... over Tijuana... crossing the border is such a hassle! For the people who have had plastic surgery... do you think taking 8 weeks off from work is enough?

Thanks,

Dottie

My husband's former girlfriend had all her work done in Mexico. The dr. was also licesnsed in California but it was cheaper in Mexico. His name is Dr. Quiroz and here is the web address. http://www.cosmedclinic.com/ She was his spokes person for several years and her before and after pics are still up. I do not any details about the recovery just that my husband said it was painful but worth it. Good luck!

Hello,

I think the best place to go for esthetic surguries it in Cuba Havana at Cira Garcia clinic. They have the best surgons and very good price. Go in internet and look for Cira Garcia and you will be very surprise. I know a lot of peoples went at Cuba.

I would love to hear about any dr. In Mexico as well for tt or lower body lift. Price is a huge issue for me as a single mom. Can anyone give approximate costs to their surgerys and their experience? I am looking at going in July but would love good references first. I was looking at dr. Yanez. Any feed back??

I'm looking at Dr Sauceda too. I have sent him my pics to get his his recommendations and price quote. It seems reasonable to me, especially since I'm single. His patients stay a couple days in the hospital and about a week in the Hampton Inn. I like the idea of being cared for for the first week or so while I recover. Here, it's outpatient and I'd have to have someone come in a couple times a day to help me out. There's a pretty good group on OH just for his patients and most of them seem happy with their results.

Thanks Amykins,

Yes... I am definitely swaying towards Dr. Sauceda. His aftercare sounds awesome. And he has emailing me personally answering all my questions. I would love to get all my work at the same time...but, I don't think I can afford the time off work or money. I think it will have to be in increments for me.

Question.... if I wanted to get augmentation with my breast lift...how do decide how large to go? What is the smallest available?

Thanks and good luck to all.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
