Excellent Results, Good Aftercare, Great Price - Mexico

I am 58 and was motivated to have a face lift 4 years ago after losing significant weight from a lap band procedure. Dr. Guerrerosantos is a great surgeon and his son Fernando joined the practice. 5 years ago. I knew he had taught other surgeons not only in Mexico but also at international symposiums. So, I researched articles he has written on PubMed (National Library of Medicine) The outcome is excellent. I am most impressed with the work on my neck, chin and eyes. I wish that I had been more explicit that I wanted a tighter look. If I return to GDL for additional surgery, I will definitely go with their clinic. I need additional lipo in my upper abdomen (the band was removed), also where the band of my bra fits under the arm and lastly - my upper calves. Most high boots do not fit me. Next time, I will book my surgery during the coolest time of the year and add some time for shopping at the end of the trip. GDL is a great city and Chapalita area is a very safe and lovely area. There is a lovely outdoor walking mall and nice restaurants. They have what are called "Executivo" buses that are very reasonable. I did not use taxis except to and from the airport. His driver took me to and from appointments for a small fee.

How do I contrast the 2 surgeons that worked on me? Dr. Cardenas was excellent and his work introduced me to plastic surgery in Mexico. While I feel that he personally is an excellent surgeon, I did not like his private hospital and the quality of nursing care I received. The aftercare I received was adequate but quite average. Conversely, I feel that Dr. Guerrerosantos and his son, Fernando Guerrerosantos have much better bedside manner and explained the procedures to me in more detail. They made me feel more comfortable. I also liked the hospital he chose - Sanatorium Guadelajara. He recommended a Gastroenterologist and I had endoscopy for a band erosion the morning before my PS. While I was there, I also had dental work and dermatology work done. He made great recommendations and helped me find the right physicians. Having a good experience is based on choosing the right physicians - whether you are in the USA or doing the medical tourism stint abroad.

Mexico Plastic Surgeon

I had previously had a tummy tuck and lipo with another well known surgeon in Guadelajara. I was happy with the results but wanted to be in a better hospital. Since Dr. Jose Guerrerosantos is 1 of 2 (American) Board Certified plastic surgeons in Mexico, I decided to give him a try. I was very impressed with his clinic, the hospital he chose, the aftercare I received - and most of all - my results.
