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.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from: 
      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
