So far awaiting surgery and looking forward to an awesome experience . I am expecting to go with Dra Duran in the DR..I am 5'4'' and 145 pounds..I am expecting to get a BBL, Liposuction. I have read many reviews on here and although I am a little scared of going out of the country I am confident that the procedure will go well.

Please change my doctor to Dra. Cardenas in Tijuana MX

Surgery with Dra. Cardenas

I had a TT, Lipo, and BBL procedure 10/10/2013 in Tijuana, MX. I had a wonderful experience with Dra. Cardenas as well as my stay at the Beauty Care Recovery House. I do not remember anything from the actual surgical procedure as I was completed sedated which I am thankful for. The Dra. and nurse staff were superb in keeping the pain to a minimum as I did not feel any pain after surgery just mild discomfort. I stayed at Beauty Care Recovery House from Thursday to Monday and then headed back home. Everything was great, and I love my new Tummy!

I had my pcp to refer me to Campbell surgical associates in Mooresville its about 20 min up from Northlake Mall. He is a general surgeon and so my insurance covered it. He saw me once a week and also treated me for a small seroma that had developed.

Thanks brklynbeauty! I look forward to talking to you in the forum and seeing the results of your beautiful new body soon! Did you consult with other surgeons before settling with Duran? I was thinking of checking out Yily and Pantoja. I emailed Pantoja but don't have Yily contact info and having trouble locating Duran info. Could you give this lost one some direction? Thx for the encouragement!
