I am a 38 y/o with 3 children 20,8 & 1 years old. I am looking to do get my body back! I have taken care of everyone else and ITS TIME 4 ME... I have been reading and researched but still have not decided between Dr Robles or De Los Santos. So if you can please share with me your up and downs I would really appreciate it.

I called Dr. Yiliy De Los Santos office today and spoke with a young lady there. I explained that I had emailed the Dr. 1/30/2013 and resent photos on 2/5/2013 and still no response. I was leaning more towards De Los Santos, but this disorganiztion makes me hesitant. I already was given a quote, a needs list, quick email responses and even open surgery dates in March from Laura Dr. Robles Assistant. I am not sure if I should wait ( patience is a virtue) or just do what I have been waiting so long to do. Any suggestions??

Ok so Dr. Yily de Los Santos finally returned my...

Ok so Dr. Yily de Los Santos finally returned my email. So her quote for a TT,BBL with fat injection,lipo of abdomen,axila,back,and waist for $3900 not including. RH,Meds,Transportation. Where Dr. Robles quote is for all inclusive $5200. Dr Robles can schedule me for March where I am still waiting for Dr De Los Santos. My headache is who to have the surgery with. I have been reading and reading on both surgeons , they both come highly recommended in all aspects. I hear Dr Robles is less aggressive than Dr De Los Santos. I also question the RH and pondering there as well. Your experiences will really help , please comment and reply.

I am more confused now!! I received an email from Dr Robles stating that many patients were taking Vitamin E & A , she was recommending that to minimize blood loss to discontinue those vitamins and to verify thwy are not a part of the multivitamin. Ok so 1 - Laura las week sent me an email advising me to take Vitamin A 1x a day ( huh ). Then 2 Vitamedica Clinical Supports main vitamin is (drumrollll) Vitamin A. Any feedback well be great.Leaning towards Dr yily , but wait her communication isnt great either,my lord cant win here. I am still waiting on a reply ( twiddle,twiddle goes my thumbs...).

Hello RS Ladies and Gents. I was looking into exchanging my cash and just fund out if you are a AAA member there are NO fees attached as long as its more than $200 dollars and it will take a 2 business day turnaround. It can be done in there office or online. I hope this helps some of us even if its for a few extra lymphatic massages.

Well making plans to head out the 3rd of March and having surgery on the 4th. Going with Dr Robles.I am still not sure where to stay JM Spa or one of the 2 RH they recomend Virgina or Juana. If anyone can steer me or guide me on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Now I know it is real...I purchased my tickets...

Now I know it is real...I purchased my tickets heading out tomorrow to buy whatever is missing.. I am so excited and my husband is soooo supportive.

Okay I'm here , got in yesterday. I met Dr. Robles and Laura they are very pleasant and they do put you at ease. We went over the procedure,questions expectations the good the bad and the ugly. I was marked during our conversation so I can see what was going to be done. The DR answered allll of my questions, she was very professional and adamant on why additional procedures will not be done. I am pretty healthy my hgb was 13.4,but even with that she stuck with my safety first. I am 2 nd in line today it's 9:45 now I'm due to go about 12 , but for surgery there is no time. Well at the surgery center the staff is pleasant, the rooms are spacious, and its clean. Lol I did get my EKG done with the antique machine toooo funny it's an experience in its own. The X-ray machine is also pretty beat up and old but it works and I guess if its not broke don't try to fix or in this case buy a new one. So I am having an abdominoplasty , extended tummy tuck,lipo of abdomen ,flanks armpits and back and lipo transfer to the lil buttie. It's a no go on lipo of the legs and arms. I will keep you guys posted as much as I can. Much love toall my RS family and less fat..
Dr. Walkiris Robles

Have u decided which house. R u going to Virginia's RH. There is another girl there from NYC. Good Luck! Will be praying for you and looking for your updates later in the week. No, I haven't decided. It's real tuff I really want the waist definition cause I got back already. Virginia's RH has gotten pretty good reviews so far. So I'm gonna wait to hear from you about the good, the bad and the ugly. If its all good then great!!!!

Hey NJ, Thanks I appreciate it. Yes I am going to Virginias. That was one of the things that had me in limbo with the waist,but from what Ive read Dr. Robles is superb with Tummy Tucks and thats what I need right now.So If I need more waist def and bigger bum Yily will be the One! I will keep you posted. I could show you ugly but I dont want to show anyone my tummy and think its a Freddy Kruger prop. LOL.

I have the same issue. Dr. Robles has great lines for a TT. But De Los Santos gives u waist definition w her lipo. So I decided I'm gonna stalk these pages look at every picture. Ask every question and by the end of next month make my real decision. I got quotes from both and Robles is a little cheaper but not by my much and I believe her prices went up. Good Luck!!! I will follow your journey.

Any luck with Dr Robles or Dr De Los Santos? I was going to go with Dr Santos but she is booked until May, I was looking for something sooner.

Funny Im stoking these pages too. I just want to make the best decision possible. It's a one time deal for me. I'm not gonna go back to DR because I am gonna have a BA here in the US by an excellent surgeon Dr Michael Brown you can find videos on youtube and he specializes in a scar perfection minimal as possible for BA Good luck and wish you the best on your journey
