Dr Carmina Cardenas, Mexico



Recommended Posts

Dr Carmina Cardenas was my plastic surgeon. I am beyond happy with everything she did and the cost was half what I would have paid here in the USA. I also had wonderful

after care in Mexico. I feel

so blessed she was my doctor. Feel free to pm me about her. She is an artist!!

she did a neck lift, breast lift and Tummy Tuck for me. I'm going back in a few months for a bbl lift and fat transfer to my face as well.

I adore her. Trust me she is the one you want. She knows how to work with weight loss patients bodies!!!!

You look great! I've already considered Dra. Cardenas for plastics when I need them, but that might be a while yet. From the photos I've seen (including yours) she does some beautiful stitching - I've seen some pretty jagged scars from other surgeons!

How long was your recovery?

I had my surgeries 6 weeks ago. I'm still recovering but almost back to normal. I needed the full 6 weeks.

I had a neck lift with muscle tightening, I had a Tummy Tuck with muscle repair, and a breast lift without an implant.

In the end it was about 13,500... I also had filler put in my lips which I love.

I'm going back in sept for fat to my cheeks and buttocks.

That is awesome! I hope there will be enough fat to put in my buttocks when I'm done. Got about 10 more pounds to go. I will totally check her out and tell her I heard from you. :)

You look wonderful! Does she offer financing? Did you fly into San Diego and they picked you up there? Did she make you separate the surgeries or was that your choice. I will need neck, boobs, 360 tummy, butt and thigh lift.

Can you stray longer than a week if you had more done or by choice? Thank you!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
