Has anyone tried the plastic surgery from Mexico. I would try it tummy tighten after my weight balanced if need be. I know the saying crawl before walking.

If you have Instagram. A bariatric person that I follow name is: Jessica_vsg44. She just had surgery is Mexico like 2 weeks ago at the Bariatric Hospital in Mexico.

I am trying to stay close to where I live as not all my family can afford to come with me and they want to be there. They are also helping me pay for it. I would have cost me $11,000 (Extended Tummy Tuck and liposuction) but since I had my surgery with a partnered doctored, it will cost me $9,200. Inflation of the NYC expensive lifestyle.

I had plastic surgery on 12/2/2017 with Dr Galvez in TJ MX and one of the best decisions ever. Due to excess skin as a result of gastric bypass surgery in 8/2015 in California, I had excess skin and so Dr Galvez did a butt lift / BBL, Thigh lift and breast lift with implants. I'm very happy.

I had mini gastric bypass and lost over 100 lbs...needless to say I had extra skin to go. I researched a lot and found Dr. Galvez with BariatricPal MX. My surgery was on 1/29/18. I had a belt lipectomy with butterfly lift, breast lift with augmentation. I was suppose to have the BBL as well but there was no fat to transfer 😔.

As a nurse in the US I can assure you that the facility and medical staff are phenomenal. All the same protocols are followed and then some. The care I received was amazing and the doctors are so nice and down to earth. They help you with what is best for you figure and what they know is Doable. Not having the fat necessary for BBL I was sad and Dr. Galvez said he could get it from my thighs but it would make them look worse. I opted to leave them alone and not worry about BBL since I can’t see my butt anyway.

Dr. Galvez is an artist! I had VSG in January 2017, lost 95 lbs, and had surgery with Dr. Galvez in January 2018 (360 Tummy Tuck, breast lift, breast implants, brazillian butt lift). Every part of my experience with Dr. Galvez, his staff, the hospital, and the hotel was exceptional. His work is amazing and everyone who took care of me during that time was compassionate, friendly, and supportive. I would choose Dr. Galvez again and again. In fact, I'll be back there in 2 weeks with a friend of mine. She was so pleased with my results that she booked surgery with him as well.

Please feel free to contact me 619-600-0375, I run the plastics department for Dr. Galvez. I also have experience with having plastics done here in Tijuana. On December 21st Dr. Galvez did my modified torsoplasty with scar removal (keloids) and full body liposculpting. I can say for the first time since I had WLS I seen the smaller sexy body.

      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!

      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.
