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 Cali...like 1hr from Los Angeles...and, the PRICE for Cosmetic Surgery is OUT OF THIS WORLD in this part of the world...OMG...for REAL...is 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...

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" www.natrelle.com 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.

@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!
  • Reply
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
  • Reply
I know you are on busy woman but you haven't posted in over a month and now that I've read your bio you have my interest so I want to hear the "The rest of your story". When are you scheduled, can you get the work off and everything else. Thanks,
  • Reply
WOW I see drama...lol...Juslim don't get your bood pressure up...Just know that Dr. Robles is the best...and from what I KNOW personally she is not willing to put her reputation on the line for this little change we pay...and considering the amount of surgeries she does it is pennies...I was asking for all kinds of surgeries and she was like "NO"...you only need..XXX...I even asked her about large implants and she was like "NO"..they will be too heavy for your body frame...I got tired of her telling me NO...and finally she told me not to worry....I told her my main concerns, which was getting rid of that ugly stomach and droopy boobs...I trusted Dr. Robles and she came through for me...Even after I got seromas...it had nothing to do with her..seromas are a possible complication to surgery... Dr. Robles is the best and MY PHOTO'S ARE NOT PHOTO SHOPPED!...Happy healing to everyone good and bad experiences!

The breast lift technique she uses, is it the vertical scar? Going to DR myself in August but with Dr. Agustina Duran and I am sooooo excited! Wish you the best!

Oh and I looooove that you got all the Robles divas together in a list because I like reviewing her work and dreaming about when it's my turn :D My husband says I'm obsessed lol. But he finally talks about "when" I go not "if" and he set the September month as a goal if not sooner. :)
  • Reply
my hubby is talking about it more than me...LOL..he wants me to go in May but I don't know if I want to request 3 weeks off and I just started my new position...so I told him July or Aug so I can look sexier for our 5 yr ANNIVERSARY! LOL
  • Reply
I hope you are well too! I am glad you posted the passport information. Have you figured out the difference yet? Also, have you set a surgery date? I haven't yet...still shooting for September :D to have all the funds available. Thanks for the prayers and right back at ya :)

chrissy, someone stated "a passport card is only for ground border crossing (Mexico,Canada) and the book is for everywhere." so I'm going to get the book...I haven'tchosen an exact date...but, Aug seems the best month for me...maybe be Sept at the latest and July being the earliest..

@VMTimeForMe, I am thinking the same...esp in regards to TT/BA...Robles is the only Dr that has me at AWE! my choice on Mexico is due to the distance but the docs don't have no AWE REVIEWS! my concern is the stitches and the drain...I won't be able to go way back to DR...yet, I can stay there 15 days...
  • Reply
Hey girl just read ur story (seen ur comment on my page lol) and I want to start by saying congrats! It takes a leap of courage to make.a definite plan to do this but its very much.worth it! Anyway, a passport card is only for ground border crossing (Mexico,Canada) and the book is for everywhere. Spirit airlines cheap and does the job,seats are comfortable....but make sure u DO NOT MISS A FLIGHT because u will have to but a whole new ticket at the last minute rate which is crazy.expensive-its happened to me before. One more.thing, if possible, ask for a lollipop lift on the breast.because scarring is less with that, well the incision is less invasive . I got an anchor lift because I didn't specify, also because I think it was needed due to extra sag..everyone is different but atleast discuss with ur doctor.the diff lift options. Any other questions u may have just hit me up,.I researched the absolute Shit out of every little detail lol.
