I am a 42 yr African American female who lost a total of 87lbs by eating HEALTHY and EXERCISING! I am a mother of two young men (19 & 22) and a wife of a Handsome truck driver...I am a Probation Officer (juveniles) and LOVE my CAREER...I have gotten my AA, BA, and MA while working FullTime...I have spent 22 yrs taking care of my family and working hard! I just recently (2010) starting TAKING CARE OF ME (that's how I lost the 87 lbs)...I LOVE LIFE and I wanna LIVE til I am 80 (or longer)...most people DO NOT BELIEVE I am 42 (which is VERY GOOD), but when I take OFF my CLOTHES is a WHOLE different STORY...I have so much LOOSE SKIN (tummy, boobs, thighs, butt, even my big toe j/k)...I DO NOT look like I have any BODY ISSUES with CLOTHES on...but, once the CLOTHES are OFF its like WTF!!!!

I have been researching Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift and Implants for a YEAR...when I found this site I FELL IN LOVE with the THOUGHT of a MOMMY MAKEOVER!!!

Okay...I LIVE in 1hr from Los Angeles...and, the PRICE for Cosmetic Surgery is OUT OF THIS WORLD in this part of the world...OMG...for it because of Hollywood/Beverly Hills/etc...I know every state has it WELL OFF SIDE...but, DANG!!!

Anyway, I didn't let the PRICES here in Cali DESPRESS me :)

I decided to go overseas to GET MY BODY BACK (with bigger boobs)!!!

If anyone HAVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK regarding overseas Cosmetic Surgery please LEAVE a COMMENT...

If anyone from CALI has had a Mommy Makeover (or tummy tuck with breast lift) that DIDNT cost the amount of a BRAND NEW CAR please leave me a comment with the INFO!!!

Dr. Pantoja reviewed your pictures and he...

Dr. Pantoja reviewed your pictures and he recommends the following plan of surgery:

Liposuction in your upper arms, upper/lower back, flanks and thighs. All the fluid obtained from liposuction will be filtered in order to get pure fat and do the injections into your buttocks. Then he will proceed with the breast lift by performing an incision around the areola, the middle and the breast crease in order to remove the extra skin and fill your breast with the implant. The next procedure will be the tummy tuck, this will be made through an incision as low and thin as possible from side to side in order to repair your abdomen muscles and remove all of the extra skin. The implants we use are from the FDA approved brand "Natrelle" of cohesive silicone gel, we handle all sizes.

The quote we can offer you as a package is $6,800dlls. Keep in mind that we will always put your life and safety in first place, in order for you to have all the procedures in one surgery, you must have optimal health by the time of surgery. We will recommend for you to prepare your body with a healthy diet, iron supplements and daily exercise, all that will lower the risk during your surgery.

Once you set up an appointment for surgery, you have 2 weeks to put down a $300dlls. deposit in order to secure your date. Recovery time is approx 4 weeks. All stitches and drains must be removed within 14-20 days after the procedure. If you can't stay that long in town, you can follow up with your local doctor, in that case we recommend for you to stay at least 5-7 days for you to recover. The quote is valid for all 2013.

What is included in this cost?

- 2 night-stay in the clinic with 24 hour nurse care/aid
- Your own recovery room equipped with Patient's bed, armchair/lazy-boy, Wi-Fi, T.V., phone, bathroom utilities (shower and lavatory).
**Please note the following: A friend or family member is more than welcome to accompany you and stay in the clinic all day long and even stay in your room while you're in surgery. However, space is limited with the intention of giving the patient the needed attention. Therefore, at night-time the one accompanying you may stay at a hotel, just to have somewhere to sleep at (we don't have beds for family members). And in the morning he/she is welcome to stay at the clinic until your check-out, which is almost always at 10:00am the day after your surgery once you've had your breakfast, Dr. Pantoja has revised you and prescribed your medications. There are several nice hotels near by. 3 are within walking distance from our clinic.

- Patient's meals are provided (Fruit, Chicken Soup/Broth, etc).
- Dr. Pantoja's, Anesthesiologist's, Hospital, Nurses and Operating Room fees included
- An evaluation and electrocardiogram (EKG) is done before the surgery by the cardiologist
- Lab work required prior to surgery and post op
- 1 Compression Girdle/Garment
- 1 Post-op Bra
- Unlimited post-operative visits

What is not included:

1)Medication you need to take home for your recovery. (i.e. antibiotic, pain, spray to use on tummy tuck scar). This can be bought at any pharmacy in Mexico or be delivered to the clinic. The cost is approx. $150 dollars since this is a two week treatment. NO REFILL NEEDED.
2) Nursing services outside of clinic.
3) Breast ultrasound ($32dlls) This will be performed as soon as you arrive to our clinic.

Additional information about what to expect after your surgery:
You will need it about 2-3 weeks time off from work/school. It is imperative that when you return to your activities you do this under what is known as 'Light-duty' or with caution and wearing the girdle for the first 5-6 months. Doing this will support your back, posture, with swelling, and will aid in achieving the goal desired.

The anesthesia used is an Spinal Block and sedation. You don't feel anything, you don't be awake.

Recommended hotels:

1) City Express Hotel (they include local shuttle service, continental breakfast and wi-fi) $65dlls.
2) Camino Real ( local shuttle service and wi-fi included)$74dlls.
3) Real del Rio (only Wi-Fi) $65dlls.
4)Hotel Pueblo Amigo 8 min from our clinic (includes continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, local shuttle and San Diego Airport shuttle for $65dlls) Daily rate $65dlls.
5) Best Western Americanna Inn they are located in San Diego and they offer transportation to the clinic and from the San Diego airport. Phone 619-428-5521

-Grace Baja Guest House- Owner Lana Humphries- Phone (619) 664-3948 website email:

-Club Med (beachfront 30 min away) Phone number 909-266-1364 website

NOTE:Your blood work and EKG results will determine if you are a candidate for surgery or not.

JusSlim, too bad!!! Was going to do bag, but truthfully, Aug is too much of a Hurricane season month.. Well Aug, Sep, and Oct.. I have my vaca interrupted too many times in Aug.. 2011 & last year. If you do Aug, make sure it's the first 2 wks. The last weeks are too risky..
Sorry for the typos! Meant to say Aug, not bag.. Lol

My doc ASKED me if I think I need BLOOD TESTS done :-) I was like "UMMMMM YEAH...cause I got a job promotion and they need the result a month before Aug!" so she put in a CBC test for me and told me to call the day before I need the test...and to expect 2 weeks for results by mail (or I can come down to the office)...YAY!!!! so I will go the 1st week of July...

I texted Laura and she told me to do the CBC test then book the flight :-)

THANK you @BXatHeart!!!
I'm going to Dr. Robles too, just haven't set the date yet. I've lost over 80 pounds too and feel great when I'm all dressed up....when the clothes come off, I'm so depressed! I'm having extended TT, muscle repair and lipo this time and hopefully come back later for new boobs :) I am so looking forward to doing something for myself. Part of me thinks I'm being selfish, but after raising my family and taking care of others, I deserve it. I think I'll be so much happier when I feel good in my own skin again.

I am still confused!!!! I don't know if I should go to Mexico (no flight needed and I only have to stay for at least 4 days and I can return to have drains removed and follow up) or to D.R (flight need and I have to stay for at least 14 days and I wont be able to return for anything)...

I LOVE Dra Robles TT and Breast work...and, there are sooooo many GOOD REVIEWS on her :)
go with whom will give you the results you want this will be a one time thing so do it right best of luck im intrested to know who you will pick
I think you should go where you believe you get the results that you want.

I need to send off this Passport application...SMH...I been busy with hubby Trucking business...we are lookn into getting another I have been doing research...but, I NEED TO SEND off this Passport app...even though my surgery wont be til July or Aug...LOL

I wanna send out PRAYERS to my Robles Divas:
Ladiebug (recent surgery)
Ms Thang

If you would like to READ their reviews just copy/paste their names in the "search" box on RealSelf...I HOPE I didn't LEAVE OFF anyone that I have actually chatted/messaged regarding Dra Robles...if so PLEASE FORGIVE ME!!!!

Love Yall!!!
@JusSlim I was wondering how everything went with you??? Hope all is well. I'm thinking of going to Dr. Robles for breast lift with silicone implants under the muscle with TT and lipo. So just wondering how you came out in the other side??? Do u like your results?? Do you have pics?? Sorry for so many questions, but you know how it is when your researching.
Hey girl. I'm a PO also, in Arizona. I'm getting my makeover at the end of May. I'm wondering how long it will be before I can carry my duty belt.... Are you armed? I'm not looking forward to the 12 pounds of gear around my hips following the TT!
It's going to hard to do that for awhile! Your duty belt will be hitting the incision most Likely and will be very uncomfortable if not painful until your healed well.. Make sure you mention this before your surgery so you know what to expect. Maybe with the right girdle it will be better...good luck ladies! Are you still going in July? Do you know which recovery house you will be in? Sounds like it will be full lol I see a few going around the same time. Maybe I will see you there
Dominican Republic Plastic Surgeon
