Lipo (Belly, Arms, Inner Thighs, Love Handles) Not Painful - Mexico

The pain from lipo is not that bad, like some people say. Yes u feel pain of course, any surgery is painful, but I can say that the treated spots only feel like if I have a real bad bruise.Im 25 yrs old, Im 5'3 and about 130 lbs. for a short person like me I can't afford to gain 5 pounds cuz it is very noticeble. So about a year ago I was 106 pounds very slim, did not even have a belly. Now Im about 130 pounds n my belly, love handles, inner thighs, and arms show very fat, cuz Im such a short person.I went to Mexico had it done. Today is my 4th day, and my belly looks like a raisin, looks nasty, since I have few stretch marks on my lower abs. But the Dr. says it's normal, within 2 months, my belly will be flat. So we just have to wait and see, the pain during the surgery was normal,  but nothing much,the pain after the surgery is painful too, but nothing really bad.This picture is from my 3rd day after the surgery.

Scary!! Why? liposuction is a very popular plastic surgery in latin america..millions persons have this surgery done each year. I have it done in Bolivia I paid $2600 for a tummy tuck (in an All inclusive package: including stay in a hotel, hospital, medical team, transportation fees, pre operative medical test, personal assistant ect..) and after that, the cost of each liposuction area was of $400,, it's very cheap when you compare to the cost plastic surgery costs in the US.

I think the pain is not that bad since the results will be worth the pain I feel now....

A dermatologist recommended him to me. But this is another dr. L just had my new surgery 6 weeks ago. This surgery was painful but very worth it. I need to make a new review, new story, etc. this new surgery was a major difference. It costed 5000 dls. My waist was 31 inches, now it's 24 inches only with lipo.
would you please email me his contact info,tried googlling but nothing is coming up
