Going for BBL :) - Los Angeles, CA

So I have finally decided that I will definitely...

So I have finally decided that I will definitely be getting the procedure done :) I am a bit nervous but extremely excited. After research I have decided to get the procedure done in Tijuana. I would like some advice in my doctor.

I have contacted several and this is my feeling overall.

Dr. Campos $3800
Includes: lip of abdomen, waist and lower back, fat grafting, girdle, post op meds and 2 massages
Thoughts: His message was just a cut and paste of what he sends to everyone (I have seen the exact message in previous post) but his work seems to be the best by far!

Dr. Pantoja:$3500
Includes: lipo upper/lower back, waist, abdomen, inner thighs and upper arms, fat grafting, 1 night stay, girdle, lab work pre surgery
Thoughts: His email was the most thorough and felt like it was the most in depth. Weird but I felt more comfortable on a personal level. Erika was just very attentive and prompt but I haven't seen too many pictures of his post op work.

Dr. Cardenas: $4000
Included: This includes lipo (upper/lower back, flank, waist and inner thighs), fat grafting, and overnight stay
Thoughts: I was really taken back by her. She told me I needed a tummy tuck due to saggy skin and loose abdominal muscle. I have trouble with this because all the other doctors have told me the opposite! I went to one in los angeles and he told me that he would not recommend a tummy tuck, and Dr. pantoja said that I did not have loose skin. Her entire message seemed to be more geared towards convincing me about the tummy tuck which I am highly against (don't want the scar and don't care whether I could hide it or not..I don't want it!) She is also the most expensive and includes the least amount of items. I also haven't seen enough of her post op pictures.

I had also written to Dr. Sanchez with the other Doctors but still haven't received a response.

I am also considering doing the procedure in December but am wondering if that would be best. I am flying to Mexico on the 21st (1 week after I plan on surgery) and am nervous about the flight but it is also the best situation because I have a 3 week vacation from work...

Any thoughts would be great :)

Thank you! I decided to go with Campos. I really didn't want the tummy tuck and I really don't feel I need it.

I am waiting to find out the available dates. I am hoping to get it done in December,

Do you have an idea of who you might choose? ......it doesn't seem like you need a tt I don't really see Saggy skin like Dra.Cardenas sees but at the end is your decision. I'm sure you're gonna look really good with out it(in my opinion)
