I Will Be Getting Mine Next Month in Cali, Colombia

I am scheduled to have my procedure done next...

I am scheduled to have my procedure done next month. I am traveling to Cali. I have been referred by several people in my family to go to this surgeon. They have had work done by Dr. Triana. I am very scared and very excited....I do have some concerns. I am 5'7 and have a lot of belly fat and love handles, I am afraid I will have lots of extra loose skin...Can anyone help me out? The surgeons office advised me that this could be a problem and that maybe I should consider a tummy tuck, but I am undecided as to if I will ever have a baby again so I dont want to do it just yet.

Dr. Carlos Triana

Hello ms Mary86 My surgery went well. My doctor was Bellman Galvis. I am one month post op today and I went down from a size 14 to 9/10. I am still swollen with a great shape overall. I look natural if someone can tell me how to download the pictures I will. I was still feeling very sick but now am functioning with few discomfort. Cali was great. I stayed at Alba Diaz recovery house and it was very good everyone I encountered was great. I would highly recommend my doctor and the recovery house as well. Dr Florez has a great reputation as well and I have seen a lot of his work. I really like his breast scar. It is almost invisible. He is popular with the locals. When am feeling much better I will post my overall experience. cali has tons of plastic surgeons with great reputation its pretty much depends on what you want done and your personal preferences. Give yourself enough time to meet with a few surgeons before making a decision.

I am back home. I stayed in Cali twenty days and was back home 15 days following my surgery. I am doing well. I had a tummy tuck plus and full body lipo. The doctor used a special technique to tie my ribs and the stomach size was also reduced. I look and feel great and yes my waist is tiny. I can't remember when I felt this good check out my doctor website. It's DCorpus international the dr name is Bellman Galvis

Hi..I didn't go to Dr Triana. My stay was great as my husband is from Cali so I stayed with family. I did go out on my own a couple of times to get the massages done and din't have any issues.

how was your procedure?. I travelled to Cali in February 2012 and had lipo, brazillian butt lift and breast lift. Now at 4 months later I find that the volume of my butt has decreased although I can still see a difference from before. I had 5.5 liters of fat removed during liposuction which definitely sculpted my midsection. The only procedure I am not satisfied with is the breast lift. I was hoping to avoid a vertical scar by having a benelli lift done but now I have huge/wide scars and flat breast. I am starting to think that the only solution to fix my breast will be to have a full lift done :(
