I'm So Excited and I Just Can't Hide It - Dominican Republic

I'm 43, 5'1, and weigh 140 lbs. I'm getting the BBL and TT. I carry most of my weight in my mid section. I can't wear the shirts and dresses that I like. I decided since I needed a change. I want the hour glass shape and a nice butt. I'm a single parent of a 16, 18, and 23 year old. I figured since I've worked this hard raising them and giving them what they needed, it's time for me to get mine.

I will pay my deposit in late February and schedule at a later date. The deposit will hold my spot for a year. My price includes everything but airfare and a passport. Three nights in the hospital and 5 nights at the resort. I'm taking this also as a mini vacation. I have been reading the posts on here and I'm very excited for everyone. I want to wish everyone he best on whatever procedure they choose and Good Luck.

Sorry, I don't know what happened to my update above. Anyway, I'm still searching. I received another quote from Salama at the Miami office for $6800. I'm still waiting on two more quotes from Costa Rica and Columbia. I also received one from Dr. Rufino Ruiz M.D. for $5200. So I'm still debating.

New Me Coming Soon

Hello everyone, I'm still working on my TT. I've been postponing this for a very long time. I want a new flat tummy like yesterday. If all goes well, I want to plan my TT sometime in November or December. It may kinda difficult since I just started college again and the semester wont be I've until December. I'll just play it by ear until I really decide.

So what is pre op? Is that the lab work or no? Or registration? I will still need to buy garments, lab work, and hotel....if I pick him.
  • Reply
The pre-op is like the consultation, they can change for that, but most doctor's doing plastic surgery dont charge for it as in incentive to their patient. You can get your own garment, I choose to get another one at makemeheal.com for 59.00. I believe theirs is for 120.00. Some people tell me that they offer them pick up at the airport. I am renting my own car so I can get around, you know eating, visiting friends etc.

That's good at least you won't be stuck at the hotel.

Yup girl, as soon as I am up to it, I am gone. Heading for the beach

Yeah I guess not. I'll keep you posted.

Go ahead and call the Miami office and act like you are brand new and see if you get a different price.
  • Reply
Ok, I called the Miami office and was quoted $6800. This includes 12 areas of lipo, tummy tuck, fat to the butt, pre-op, post-ops, surgery, follow ups, and don't include garment.
  • Reply
Oh and the quote is good for a year but $100's per procedure needs to be put down for deposit. So I would have to put down $300.
  • Reply
Well it is is a little cheaper. Normally, post op is included in just about all surgeries at no charge with the exception of a very few surgeries, like heart surgeries etc. So overall it is a better price. My price does not include a tummy tuck.
  • Reply
Oh $100 per per procedure is not bad at all.
  • Reply
It's good for 6 months.
  • Reply
Ok Ruben just emailed me back and he said for just the BBL it would be $5899 not $3000, i guess that's what my ears was trying to hear.lol
