I’m anxious and have questions



Recommended Posts

So I’m considering going to the BariatricPal Hospital as an option for skin reduction.If you have been there which surgeon would you recommend and why?My biggest fear is reading about people saying they are having surgery in Mexico and getting tramadol for pain?I have a friend that had skin reduction in America and she the recovery was quite painful.I mean the savings are nice having it done in Mexico,but if going to be hurting like hell its not worth it to me.Also why is the surgery cheaper in Mexico.Also it looks like they do buttlifts but it’s Brazilian.No offense ladies believe me it looks great on you,but I’m afraid on me I would be sending the wrong signal 😂If anyone can shed some light on this I would be most appreciative.

I do not have knowledge of the plastics portion of your questions (I have years to go)

but tramadol works well for pain management (subjective of course) and I believe its probably being used to not portray or proliferat stronger opioid abuse. When you consult with a group ask these questions or get the pain management plan in writing.

Also, if you go to Mexico...make sure you have a support doctor at home who can help if anything comes up. Keep everyone in the loop.

Hello George,

I run the plastics department at BariatricPal Hospital and I can help with your questions.

Dr. Galvez & Dr. Sanchez is our plastic surgeons, both who are board certified plastic surgeons. I have had procedures done by both doctors. Dr. Galvez did my torsoplasy and full body Lipo in December of 2017 and I have had a few cosmetic procedures with Dr. Sanchez. Tramadol is a common pain medication used in Mexico & in the United States as it is a non-addictive pain medication. I have had 3 rounds of plastics and usually, it is the first day that is the worst and things get better each day after. My pain levels we about a 3 maybe 4 out of 10 but what was a 6 was discomfort trying to get comfortable is the worst part of it all and this was at a 3 or 4 by day 4. You will spend a lot of time resting as you get very tired really fast for the first couple weeks. The reason it is cheaper in Mexico is the pay scale is different in Mexico. We have a new hospital it was opened September of 2017 everything is state of the art, we are not a clinic we have in-house pharmacy, lab & X-ray. We have a full range of doctors and specialist to make sure that you are taken care of.

As for the butt lifts, :)it does not have to be the Brazillian as this is more of a female thing but we can do a fat transfer just enough to unflatten the pancake butt 😂we would want you sending the wrong message...LOL

please feel free to email me for more information.
