I went to Cancun, Mexico Oct to have a Facelift, Necklift and Tummy Tuck with Lipo and Arm Lift. I was turning 60, I had a VSG a little over a year ago and wanted to fix some of the left over issues after weight loss.
The hospital was great, went to the Amerimed. Had agreed on with Dr. Velasco on procedures. When I came to my arms were not done nor my daughters in the manner we agreed and I paid for. They actually look worse than before because he did Lipo and now they are all wrinklely because there is no fat and only skin. Told me I could come back to fix them but why should I have to go back and pay for plane fares, etc. Besides the fact that my neck looks like someone stitched it and pulled a gather stitch and there is a roll between my chin and the gather. Looks awful.
Trying to be patient to see if it improves, after 2 months, still the same. I have spent every other day at hospital here for over a month because of wound care. My incision had gaping hole 2 inches by 3/4th inch by 1/2 inch deep and there was pockets under the skin, my daughter who went with me is going through the same thing. First she had small hole and now two months her incision just came open to tunnels under the skin. She is seeing wound care specialist also.
Just wanting to let you know that there is so many things that can go wrong. My face is okay, don't think he did half of what he said he would do, still swelling but the roll between the gather and chin looks awful. If they don't do what they say they are going to do you are not going to get a refund. You are out of that money. Plus we had to stay a couple extra days which is just something to think about.
Now Dr. Velasco will not answer me when I write him about the money or the before pics he promised. I had surgery there before for a VSG and Dr. was wonderful, everything went great, would do that part again, would never go for plastic surgery with Dr. Velasco again. In his office for aftercare, there is no privacy and not clean, mold on walls, didn't even pull a clean paper on the table for my daughter, no one in room with you except him and you will be totally naked with nothing over you.
Still battling tunnels and holes in my stomach...

Chose my Dr. throught Medical Tourism and the rating is because of the experience I had with this Doctor, not happy at all with any of my procedures at this point.
