I had Breast Augmentation in Thailand and LOVE my results, check out my profile to see my photos. Destination Beauty helped me plan everything and I had an awesome experience.

Hi I can strongly recommend Dr Bugra in Cyprus. I arranged my procedure through Cosmetic Surgery Cyprus and am very pleased with the results.

Hi Shar1985 I used Dr Bugra in 2013 as a friend of mine had used him the year before. He answered all of my pre operation concerns so that I was very relaxed going in for the surgery. The discomfort after the operation was not as bad as I had feared and I am so pleased with results. The whole team at Cosmetic Surgery were very helpful and I did quite a bit of price comparison across Europe and think I got a very good deal. Best wishes Hils

I went to Adam Kalecinski in Poland a year ago for tightening of the lower face/jawline and i looked exactly as i did before,with no improvement whatsoever ,and 2 of my friends also went to him and had no improvement at all. A total waste of money,and i should point out that his co-ordinators will slam you for complaining ,so expect no confidentiality at all.

Please whatever you do,do not use doctor Hassan in Dubai. Spent over $7,000 on vaser liposuction on my arms,stomach and back and didn't see a difference at all. It was a complete waste of money. Now I'm hoping to go do it all over again in Brazil. Can anyone recommend a superb surgeon in Brazil? Rio or Sao Paolo

To all looking at surgery abroad...One thing you must consider is after care. Make sure you have a support system set up back in your home country/town for follow up past the inital 10 days. I say this from experience...post op once I was home had an incision infection and a seroma. It is very stressful and hard to find a doctor to take care of it, as they are not familiar with your case. I had to work hard to find aftercare for my needs, and it added to my fear and frustration. I am not saying, don't go abroad,I am saying, make sure you have docs ready to care for you...wound care and checks, release to work, etc... while the foreign doc can provide you with self care follow up guidelines, with them not seeing you and talking to you, they won't be able to personalize your aftercare. They say go backto work week 2 after a tummy tuck, but truly your body was not ready to go back until 4 weeks out, and you injure yourself following cookie cutter post op directions. For example, I am now anemic and my wound healing stalled in a spot! I do not fall under the cookie cutter and I was given no direction on what to do for this case or the seroma (fluid filled gap) i developed. I am 6 weeks out and still very much in the healing phase and in need of significant after care getting manual drains on seroma and wound care at a clinic. Just be prepared in case you do need help after. the two complications I had are high probability of getting. Best wishes, and do your homework and set up home support for abroad surgeries.

Hi guys I am looking into makeover travels. I'm in a Australia totally bored by all the research I've had to do! Terrible I know but it's like going round in circles!!! My question is does anyone want to do the travel buddy thing? I'm 21 and getting breast augmentation, lipo and maybe nose job not sure about that one as totally paranoid about my face. I'm so ridiculously picky and if I like someone's rhinoplasty I won't like their breast augmentation so annoying that's why I might leave off nose job in favour of natural looking breasts....cost isn't an issue for me but obviously it would be nice to get a good package deal. Mostly I just want to get away and have a long vacation were no one knows me and will judge me for my surgery!!! Anyone out there who has a story to share or before and after photos of their surgery abroad be it through an agency or not pleeeeeeease email me xxxl@gmail.com and if anyone wants a travel buddy contact me too :) I'm ready to leave ASAP. Have thought about the procedures for a couples years, done a ton of reaserch and also had a couple consults here in Melbourne. Def don't want to stay in Australia though. And like I said no matter how much you research you will never find "the answer" sure you will avoid bad choices but basically people are getting great results all over the world. I don't care where I have to go I just want to be one of them!

I am scheduled for Sept, 2013 at LIMARP in Tijuana Mexico for an armlift and a tummy tuck. They have many excellent surgeons in TJ, and it is just over the border. I have already been for a gastric sleeve and it was a great experience. Facilities are great, and the doctors and staff are very attentive.

Hi ladies...I keep reading about cosmetic operations in Bolivia and seems like most of you are happy with the result. I done my in Serbia and can't be happier with the result ! Considering the fact that flight from England costs about 100Eur and takes 2,5 hrs to get there by plane ..Their assistant was waiting for me at the airport, I was given their sim card, so I could be in touch with her if I needed ( without using my roaming), I was taken to the apartment, following day started my pre op treatments and check ups.My translator went with me and explained me everything in English. Everything went well and few days after I was leaving with my new breast .
