Are you a patient of Francisco Sauceda, MD?
My surgeon was very kind and knowledgeable. His nurse Patty was awesome, caring and attentive. I had an overall great experience in MX, except for my personal homesickness and loneliness. The clinic was clean and modern and my treatment was top notch. Complications once I went home made it difficult to be so far from my surgeon, so I had to seek out a local surgeon for follow up care. Overall, I feel my results could have been better, but I'm not sure if it is just the way I healed.
I have heard Dr. Sauceda, MX is good. Does anyone have pictures of his work?
I researched him on the internet after hearing about him on a WLS support group. He was so kind and gentle and his team was great! I have never had this kind of treatment in the US. He was there for me, answered all my questions, put me at ease and did a wonderful job! I am so pleased with my results. I couldnt have asked for better! He is the BEST!
Outstanding artist and surgeon specializing in weight loss patients. After care that is exceptional. Pricing that is affordable. When I started to look for a doctor I wanted the best. It's not like I'm wealthy, but I was going to only do this if the situation was perfect for me personally. I was very impressed by a few doctors work I had seen online and their patient reviews, but the cost was $25,000 to $30,000 just for a body lift alone. If you wanted breasts, that was done a week later at and add'l $7-9,000. I found a few local docs in the midwest that were $15-$19,000 for the LBL. That seemed more doable, and their pics and their work looked good too, and they had lots of experience. However, I was really bummed about the thought of surgery that extreme and then figuring out how to care for myself afterward. Many places offer an after care (at a premium) or as they consider a bonus, they have surgical facilities on site and you can go home that day. Woo Hoo...that means getting a ride home and then get back in the car and drive back the next day and every other day as needed for check ups. I'm single and live alone. The thoughts of the financial drain it would put on me made me literally weep when I realized that I just can't afford to do it. But I kept looking and reading. One woman had shared that lots of people go to Dr. Sauceda in Monterrey, Mexico. I was like...MEXICO? Hell no. NOPE. Next. But, I asked a few questions because it seemed odd. Why would you go so far away for this scary procedure? The answers she shared and the posts that I read from other patients once I started to check into it, sealed the deal. In addition to 12 days of after care, he reimburses you $600 for your flight. The more procedures you have, the less each one costs. His specialty really is weight loss patients. Some of my "surgery sisters" had many procedures done: thigh lifts, upper body lifts, arm lifts, etc. Dr. Sauceda is a gifted surgeon. He really is an artist. His pricing is affordable, the aftercare was the deal-sealer for me, but the results are beyond my expectations.
I found out about Dr Sauceda from a fellow Duodenal Switch (WLS). Discovered Obesity Help had a group dedicated to Dr Sauceda's patients and those exploring PS. I met with Dr Sauceda in Aug 2010 in San Francisco and had surgery Jan 2011. The care that was received was over and above what I would have received in the states. I also liked that the procedures were done with an epidural and twilight sedation. I came out of surgery rested, wide-awake, and I wasn't sick for days after. I was in the 24/7 clinic for 7 days and wasn't sent home the same day with a pain pump as would have been done locally. Dr Sauceda came by daily while I was in the clinic and for the 7 days that I was at the hotel. I also had his cell phone if there were any problems. Everything healed nicely and I think Dr Sauceda is fantastic. I love my Body by Sauceda.
He deserves a 10 rating in everything! Where do I start? This man is the best! He is caring and extremely skilled for weight loss patients. I have had 3 surgeries with him, Brachioplasty, Tummy Tuck, Lower body lift, extended thigh lift, facelift and eyelift. The price is good, but the care is what brought me back over and over again!
