Dr. S, Mrs. Dr. S and the team at the clinic were great. Flying to Mexico was not considered the "norm" for me by any state, but the friendliness of the doctor and the clinic staff made it all worth while! The aftercare received is first in class. Never would get this in the US w/o being RICH!!!
Welcome and thanks so much for sharing your experience with us.

You look amazing! Congrats on your results. How did you find the recovery period, was there much pain and downtime?

Actually there was no pain. I stayed after procedure about 8 days. 2 nights in the clinic and remainder at a hotel nearby. Great location. Clinic is a 5 minute walk from hotel and next door is grocery, starbucks, mcdonalds, food court and a few Chain options for dining. The first 48 hours were a struggle but that was because compression garment and drains. Each day was easier after. I was back to work....desk job...about 2.5 weeks post op. Total recovery time about 6-8 weeks

Dr. S is very polite, professional and personable! He truly cares about his patients. I felt completely at ease with him and the team at the clinic. I had a lower body lift, breast lift with aug and long thigh lift. Pain associated with the procedure was minimal. The doctor does use a different approach for the surgery that will alleviate stress associated with issues for anesthesia. I had a few minor surgeries, before WLS and always miserable after surgery because of the anesthesia.....I had NO SIDE EFFECTS and woke up from a 10 hour surgery feeling pretty darn good, outside anxiety of course! The clinic was spotless. Staff was very responsive to me and my family. I would recommend basic spanish if you go, but always keep your google translator app handy :) After the clinic, the stay at the hotel was nice. The doctor and his nurse Paty, visited DAILY. Paty assisted with showers and cleansing of wounds etc. She also was so kind, if you were alone, would even run errands. I could not have asked for a better experience for what I had done.
