From Canada..Amazing Breast Lift Combine with Eyelids Surgery(Upper and Lower) - Cancun, Mexico

Much more than expected!! Breast lift and eye lid...

Much more than expected!! Breast lift and eye lid (higher and lower surgery) 6500.00$
It took me months to finally decide to go with MY MEDICAL VACATIONS Cancun to do my breasts lift( including a capsuloscopy which is the scar tissue that cause excessive hardness to the breasts, removal of 18 year old saline implants and replacement with silicone gel implants and the lift) and eye lift higher and lower lids.
I am from Canada and to have those 2 surgeries done, it would have cost me 16,000$ (before taxes) and after reading testimonials from patients that had plastic surgery done abroad, with success, l decided to get it done on January 14th 2014.
My Journey with MY MEDICAL VACATIONS started in august 2013 over multiple emails and always got a quick answer to any questions that l had, Katie my patient coordinator is so bubbly, informative, sensitive, professional and very knowledgeable, understands how important it was to me to have all my questions answered. From the beginning to the end, Katie was the only one responding to my emails.
There is always a risk with any surgery even in CANADA and a surgeon is no less a competent surgeon because he is not in our “backyards”. Cancun is well-known for Plastic surgery and it happen That MY MEDICAL VACATIONS works with one of the most prominent Plastic surgeon in Mexico, DR. MARCO CARMONA (credentials verified). He one of the best and once you ve met him; you know right away you are in good hands.
So, on Monday January 13th the day before surgery, my husband and I arrived in Cancun and stayed at LA Quinta Inn hotel for 5 nights which offers amazing rates. Many other patients stay at that same hotel because the staffs is very caring and amazing, and you don’t feel like an Alien walking in the Hotel. They are use to Plastic Surgery patients.
We met in the hotel lobby and from there we were taken in charge immediately. Cecy (the assistant driving us around to our medicals appointments) is very sensitive, calm and reassuring, and drove us to get my blood work done, then dropped us off at the hotel to have a quick lunch. By 5pm, Cecy came back again to drive us my husband and l to meet Dr. Carmona and discuss the surgery and gives us all paper work to read carefully and sign once you are back at the hotel..... they never RUSH YOU ,gives you all meds ( FREE) then she drove us to the cardiologist to have test done...this is mandatory they make sure you are healthy to get surgery if not they cancelled and it did happen to another woman.
Tuesday morning the day of surgery, Cecy pick me up and drove me to this brand new modern state of the art plastic surgery center and a nurse set me up in this comfy like home room and the anesthetist came and introduce herself to me and Dr Carmona also came in to draw on my body what he was going to do, as l was rolled in into the operating room , Cecy kiss my forehead just like my mom would do and last thing l know, l was already back in the wake up room with my husband waiting for me. Surgery took 6 hours. Later that night Cecy drove us back to the hotel in a wheelchair. Everything went well and of course tired from the anesthesia but all went well and very little pain from my surgery, the most pain came from sleeping half sitting up and my back was hurting so much that l decided to take the pain killer for my back hahah ( If you have to bring 1 thing please bring a plane pillow it help you sleep and hold you head) The next day meet with the Dr and beside being swollen it look pretty good and barely no bruising( l took Arnica Montana 5 natural medicine highly recommended for plastic surgery for bruising )
Every night Lolita the nurse came she is the sweetest girl that you just want to take home with you....she gave me a shower, wash my hair, wash my special bra that by the way its FREE not like in Canada that you have to pay for everything specially house call from a nurse.
Without MY MEDICAL VACATIONS support it would have been harder for us to get around and knowing where to go for everything. We felt secure and for that we can never thank enough KATIE AND CECY for their compassion and humanist. We never expected the service being so good we taught after payment we will see them less but never happen and they also don’t over book patients so they concentrate on giving the best humanly possible services.
Today its post-up day 6th and look pretty good no pain just breasts swelling. Although it is still too early to see the outcome of both surgery but will post pictures soon.
Thank you My Medical Vacations, thank you Dr. Carmona
I will not hesitate a minute do use MY MEDICAL VACATIONS again (Next time Dental work)
Xoxoox to Katie and Cecy

Eye lids before and after

Did have that surgery before at age 39 ..under eyes bags and top lid sagging runs in the family so i knew what to expect eyes take time to heal am still swollen at the bottom and feel a bit of numbness on top eye lids i had very littel bruisings since i took Arnica Montana. Still have scabs and very important not to remove and no make up before 1 month .....will post more pix in 1 month post op eyes are the same third week is so important for scars healing ....

4 weeks post-op

upper and lower Bleph, scars still red on the sides but getting there slowly, not rushing to put any conceller or make-up only sunscreen. Eyes do not feel as tight anymore but still have numbness on upper and lower lids. Will remain with extra skin on lower lid because had to much to remove and facelift was not something l wanted. Anyone had Laser done for extra skin removal?

still swollen and feel numb on both side. The good news is Still have sensation on both my nipples. Right breast still have scabs but normal and now sleep on my side and have no pain at all. Have no regrets to have this surgery done. Saw Dr. Carmona this week and he said l was is most challenging patient ( Breast surgery) but he is so happy with the result. So far am healing pretty good and hopefully scars will be minimal. I have follow all P-O recommendations and he was very strict 1. d'ont do exercise or lifting 2. Eat healthy diet very important. week 3 to 6 are the most important for healing.

Mexico Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Marco Carmona is one of the most prominent Plastic surgeon in Mexico and many medical journalists has written nothing but high praises about him (credentials verified) and believe me l have done my home work for a few months before choosing a surgeon. Once you ve met him; you know right away you are in good hands. I went over is impressive Resume and he continues to update himself on top of medical plastic surgery new technologies. He is honest and kind and reassuring which is for me very important. Am 52 and wanted a refresh eye look without changing the shape of my eye so much and also wanted a breast lift ( with saline implant removal, capsuloscopy wich is the removal of the scars tissus that form a hard shell around the implant that was causing me pain on and off...mine were 20 years old and replace with smaller sillicon gel implant then the lift) that was a huge surgery and only a highly skilled surgeon could perform such a challenging surgery......after 20 years of wearing saline implants once your surgeon opens you up he does not know what he is going to find and my surgery bump form a 5 hour to a 6 hour surgery and it would have cost me over 11,000.00$( breasts alone) to be performed in Canada. Both surgery was a success and will be posting pictures before and after in 1 month. Thank you Dr.Carmona for your magical hands and see you in a few months for some Lippo!!!!

I am looking for a doctor in the Cancun area and have some questions for ladies that have been there recently! Do you have any photos of what you look like now? How long until you could fly back home? (I am hoping to stay there for a vacation after and would like to know how long I need to stay after the surgery) Did you experience contracture with the new implants? Do you notice any scarring? Did you get the implants over or under the muscle? Thanks in advance if you are able to answer some of these for me :)

Hi, Very happy with my choice about Dr. Carmona. I think a 10 day stay is plenty of time for the surgery that l had. I do not experience Contracture with my new implants and they look natural no too high just perfect for me and of course l have scar but they heal pretty good....considering the extent of my surgery, also that kind of breast surgery will be impossible without scars!!!!l am still a but ref dur to the fact l am still in mexico and the Heat is number 1 ennemy of scars any scars. l just update a photo taken this week of my new eyes and will update one for the breast tomorrow !!

HI you look fabulous, how the scars looking out know? where your implants under muscle or over? did you have drains put on? how long did you use the bra for your breast to stay the way you like? any other information that you have I really appreciated. Whats your diet? thank you again, take care. K

Hello K, Thanks for the compliment it was the best decision ever. My implants are over muscle and had no drains put on. I wore the special bra they gave me all day and all night for 3 weeks and after i did alternate with a sport bra day time but use Doctor bra at night and still do until l reach my 7 to 8 weeks. l have been to the beach wearing different kind of bikini but no wire and felt great as long as you do not lift or bend or danse etc etc its ok for the first 6 to 8 weeks. My Doctor told me to eat very healthy like lots of protein, veggies and fruits it help a lot with the healing process and scarring.....am in my 5th week and feel really good, still some scabs on on breast but its normal since all the tissue removal my blood flow was reduce and slow down the scabs from falling off....important to not remove by yourself that might cause scarring. I was frighten about bad scars and i did saw alot of bad pictures on the net but still went ahead with the procedure and now lam so happy with the way my scars are healing and cant believe they will be minimal scars after that big operation. Hope that help and will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for you answer, I just need more info about your flight back, the hotel you stay any other information that you may have is really appreciated, where about in Canada are you from? thank you again Kay.

Hi again your other implants where they under the muscle? how did you chose over it ? thank you Kay
  • Reply
My other implants were iver muscle as well because of the size to big to be under muscle and i decided to still do the same with the new ones due to the fact that l had no issue with the capsule becoming hard up to 4 yr ago and also have a few friends w implants under muscle that become hard after a year or 2 and it did nit matter if they were saline or sillicone...and l also follow Dr.Carmona advice ..... the morning of the surgery he probably spent 20 minutes drawing on my breats he is so perfectionnist and it made me fell that l was in good hands :)

My pleasure! great ! great vacations! my breast look awsome even my 23 y old is jalous lol did not count or ask how many stitches and every case is different. Nipples and front scars barely visible but under breast scars is still red because of the heat it is hard to keep dry. No pain just feeling swollen on side of breast and now going in the ocean no problem and only wear special. bra at night. Look so natural. l had bad scars from my previous breast implant so this time is so perfect!! hard to put a pic because have no internet where we are now and have to go to the village but will put another pic soon. :)
