Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) and Tumescent Liposuction After Weight Loss - Guadalajara, Mexico

I had tumescent liposuction and abdominopasty with Dr. Lazaro Cardenas in Guadalajara after losing over 100 pounds. The purpose of this surgery was to deal with sagging skin that was causing recurring skin infections and give my body a better contour. This was my first experience with PS in Mexico. Dr. Cardenas repaired my stomach muscles that had been cut in a uterine reconstruction 22 years ago. The OB-GYN was a self described "master surgeon" and had given me a beautiful bikini scar that was hardly noticable. However, he had also cut vertically inside and destroyed my musculature. So, it was very significant to have this repaired after all those years. I am very happy with the results, but not so happy with the lower abdominal scar. It was not nearly as pretty as my previous bikini scar and has not faded after 4 years. On the upside, Dr. Lazaro Cardenas does a marvelous belly button. I do not care for his private hospital and feel the night nursing staff was not properly trained. Many months later I had surgery with Dr. Jose Guerrerosantos and was in Sanitorium Guadalajara. The nursing staff there was very professional.

These are before and after pictures that Dr. Cardenas made after the abdominoplasty and thigh work. This work was done in approximately 2008 - 4 years ago.

About a year later, Dr. David Kirsch K did the buttocks area and some additional lipo on the outer thighs.

I will probably have more liposuction done at a later time.

Dr. Cardenas surgical skills are excellent. His wife, who is an ENT physician also assist him in his surgeries. The transexual feminization has become his core business. (see Marion Love, YouTube) He also does many natural females like me. While I was pleased with his surgical work, I was not pleased at all with his private clinic. It was not up to standard with other hospitals in Guadalajara. The night nurse was very poorly trained with IV's and nursing practices safety. There was no excuse for her lack of knowledge in basic nursing care. Perhaps conditions have changed. This surgery was performed in 2008.
