Going to DR to get my donK :-*

Has anyone used a doctor from The Medical Group Of...

Has anyone used a doctor from The Medical Group Of Costa Rica? Ive been receiving mail from them since I signed up for RealSelf. IM 31 I have a deficiency in the buttocks area. Im 5'5 and I weigh 200 currently. I want to have the fat transfer butt augmentation done. I want to have fat transferred from my stomach, waist line, & back to my butt and hips. I carry most of my weight in my legs and stomach. Do I need to lose weight before the surgery? What type of testing do I have to have done before the surgery? How long do I have to stay in the area where the surgery was done? Will I need to purchase medication? If anyone has worked with a doctor from here let me know. Ill also be looking for traveling buddies Ive been seeing great work on the Dominican Republic specifically Yily De Los Santos, MD. Any info is greatly appreciated!

· IF YOU NEED ANY DISCHARGE PAPER AFTER SURGERY, PLEASE AKS FOR IT AT LEAST 4 DAYS BEFORE LEAVING SANTO DOMINGO, OTHERWISE WE WON’T PROVIDE IT.



Scheduling Your Surgery Date:

Select the date you would like to have surgery. We recommend you plan your date accordingly, allowing yourself to remain in the country for two weeks. If you cannot stay two weeks, you must stay for minimum of 15 days so we can guarantee that you leave out of risk. Please take into account the procedures you want to have. The more procedures you have, the longer you should stay. In order to confirm and guarantee your surgery date, you must secure your date with a MINIMUM deposit of $500 (NON-REFUNDABLE). A deposit is required as a show of good faith that you are serious about having surgery. In the past we have scheduled patients for surgery who did not show up. We apologize we cannot guarantee a surgery date without a deposit. Verbal confirmation a date is available for surgery does not guarantee you that date. Surgeries are scheduled on first come basis when the deposit is made. Once your deposit is made please send me an email with a photo attached of the deposit slip receipt. The deposit date and amount must be visible. I will respond to your email confirming your date is guaranteed. You must retain the deposit receipt and present it the day of surgery to receive credit for the deposit, if you don’t bring it I won’t be able to deduct it from your quote)





Confirming Your Date:

I’m not receiving deposits currently. I’m having some inconvenients with my bank account. I’m working on it. Meanwhile, I can confirm your date with your flight information.



Once your deposit is made, snap a picture of the deposit slip. Send an email to DraYilyPlastica@gmail.com with the picture of the deposit slip receipt attached and the following info:

· Subject: DEPOSIT MADE – CONFIRM DATE FOR (YOUR NAME)

· Full name

· Phone or cell phone number

· Day of the surgery

· Place where you will be staying at

· Flight information (airline, flight number, date and time)

· Quote and procedures

· Confirmation number of the deposit & account number (photo)



Payment Forms:

The balance of your surgery must be paid prior to your surgery. You can pay the morning of your surgery at the clinic. I only accept cash. You may pay in US dollars or Dominican pesos. I don’t accept financing, credit card, care credit, money orders, bank check or personal checks.



About the procedures:

The day of surgery

You have to fast the day of surgery so don't eat or drink anything but water. You have to be in the clinic at 7 am, you’ll have the test done, the consultation with me and then the surgery. One of my assistant will be with me to translate and for a better communication.



After surgery

I will give you instructions and recommendations for your recovery. You will stay 1 night in the clinic. You have to wear the garment for 3 months and can’t spend more than 45 minutes a day without it during these months.



Anesthesia

We usually use continuous epidural block. Although some patients prefer general anesthesia, it is at the discretion of the anesthesiologist. He is a trusted professional and knows what anesthesia is the best for each patient.



Breast Augmentation

The implants are placed under the muscle. The stitches are absorbable; they do not need to be removed. I do not transfer fat to breast because of the issue of breast cancer.



Tummy tuck

The tummy tuck scar/incision is 4cm from the pubic line. I use stitches that dissolve, so they do not have to be removed. I cannot tell you how many inches your waist will be reduced as that is dependent on your diastasis and the separation of your muscles. This will be determined during surgery. You will have a drain after surgery that will collect excess fluid. This drain will be removed in 7-14 days, depending on your recovery. Please note it is recommended you wait at least 1 year to get pregnant after having this procedure.



BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift)

This procedure entails grafting fat from other areas of your body and injecting it into your buttocks. I cannot determine how much fat I can graft before surgery. The amount of fat injected in the buttocks will depend on how much fat your buttocks can accept and your hip size. The fat will be injected in all directions as long as it does not compress the sciatic nerve. Too much fat injected in the buttocks can cause necrosis or form abscesses. This mainly occurs when the patient does not have proper post-op care. After having a BBL you CAN sit on your butt and sleep on your back.



Important notice about BBLs: Most of the butts in the “wish pics” that some of my patients send me are made of PMMA. I do not use PMMA. I solely do fat grafting and inject the fat in the buttock. I will always try to give my patients their desired results, but we have to be aware that there are limits when injecting fat.

I need to know where are the best recovery homes????? Please send info. Ive found a few but the best referral would be from someone who has experienced it first hand. Ive done my EKG and all the blood work I guess its okay I sent it to Dra. Yily. I still have to get my chest X-ray done this Friday. But Im pretty healhy so no worries.

Fantasy Recovery

Has anyone been to Fantasy Recovery??? Looking for reviews and info on this recovery home please.

Got my date...got my ticket.. the countdown begins...

I received quotes from a few but I'm going with Dr. Yily De Los Santos. I'm still debating on BBL+Lipo or TT+BBL+Lipo. I was told I may have loose skin without TT, but that TT is just soo invasive. I don't wanna waste my money but I don't wanna be in too much pain either. Choices Choices. Anywho I purchased my ticket, got most of my meds, I'm almost sure on my th, and I'm going this weekend Rio get all the extras I need. Does anyone know if Yily gives out a garment with the butt out? One Dr told me they don't carry them in DR. February 24th cannot come soon enough. :-D

I went with Dra Walkiris Robles.

Here's I'll quote from Robles
"Tummy tuck + liposuction on waist, armpits, back + Brazilian Butt Lift"

 

Also she said ¨I can do a very good job in her body to improve it¨, Anyways, Please see bellow the price quote for the procedure(s):

First ill say I like Dra. Robles. I like my results so far but the swelling is crazy!!!! Ok so in reference to the quote everything was accurate except Personal Assistant Full Bilingual? I don't know who this person was but I never met he/she. And depending on how you deal with pain (Bring Your Own)!!!!! The pain meds I was supplied did nothing for me. The Doctor is nice and pretty friendly, she does speak English ok. The communication was NOT on point it was ok but not like I would've preferred. The Recovery Home I was at is Virginia RH. The ladies there were very nice, especially Julissa she is a very caring young lady, she's definitely in the right field of work. They feed you real good here, more food than you'll probably be able to eat. I was a little annoyed by one of the worker's towards the end of my stay because I felt she was treating me like a child and I'm a full grown adult. That's all I can think of for now, any questions send me a message. :-)

before and after

Welcome aboard Hun! I know most doctors will advise you to maybe come down to around 180lbs- that seems to be Duran & Yily's requirement. You will need to get blood work/ basic physical bc your hemoglobin levels need to be at 12 for SX in the DR. You can read my review I posted Duran's contact info etc. & other info that would be helpful ( supply list, medications, etc.) also use the search box up top for any/ everything somebody has posted the info or their experience. Start researching, reading, taking notes, and getting on the ball to get familiar w/ the site & terminology ( u can search terminology as well to make sure you understand the abbreviations. Good luck Hun & we are here to help. Oh her twitter & IG name: Drhilarioduran she has plenty of pictures. And she does speak English.

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us!

Im sure the other BBL girls will jump in soon and give you some advice. However, in the meantime, you can check out the great BBL guides we have and the BBL forum. There's lots of information in both places about travel buddies, how to prepare, etc.

Please do keep us updated with your progress!
