Surgery in Monterrey mexico



Recommended Posts

I had my plastic surgery in Monterrey but my wls in Tijuana. If you need a great plastic surgeon I can't highly enough recommend Dr. Sauceda in Monterrey, he is the best. They call him an artist for reason.

I’m having plastic surgery with Dr. Sauceda in mid-Feb 2020. What surgery did you have done with him and when, and how do your scars look today? Are they jagged, thick, good belly button, etc? And what kind of stuff do you think I should bring with me; what’s essential for recovery at the Hampton Inn?

And your profile says you’re having a revision from MGB to RNY in less than 2 weeks. Do you mind sharing why and who is going to do the surgery? I had an MGB in TJ in April 2017; acid reflux was improved but then I developed bile reflux, so in July 2018 I had a hernia repair and Nissen Fundoplication (in the U.S.) and I am doing great now; no more reflux of either kind.

I had a Tummy Tuck, breast lift and implants, face lift with eyelids, some Lipo and fat transfer to my face. My scars look great, belly button looks amazing. Essentials for the hotel, lap top for Netflix, a couple maxi dresses and a robe. you mostly live in the garment but it's nice to cover up with a robe and wear a maxi dress if you go to the HEB or a restaurant. Dr. Illan is doing my RNY. The doctor here in the states said he consulted surgeons across the country and internationally and they all said Nissen Fundoplication and the Lynx weren't really an option for me and Dr. Illan agreed I should get the full bypass. I had the sleeve and had horrible acid reflux that the mgb didn't fix so I'm praying this bypass fixes it. I won't have any other options after this.

You will love Dr. Sauceda. He and Patty are amazing.

Thanks for the great info! Good luck with your revision surgery! 😊

FYI - I had a LINX Reflux Management device implanted in March 2015, so a couple of years before MGB surgery (April 2017); it helped for 18 months and then acid reflux returned in Oct 2016. As part of my July 2018 abdominal surgery to resolve bile reflux, I also had the LINX device removed since it wasn’t useful and even more importantly, because the one I had was recalled by the FDA in April 2018. I have a family history of esophageal cancer so minimizing/eliminating GERD is paramount to my long term health. Thankfully, I’m doing very well now. 👏
