Hi Everyone,

I really need your help! I’m confused as to who to select (Dr. Manuel Espalliat or Yily De los Santos) to have Liposculpture (Stomach/back/arms) and fat transfer to my buttocks and hips.

I’ve heard that both doctors are reputable. Has anyone heard and/or seen of these doctors body contouring work. I know Yily has pictures up and they are great (hopefully they are not Photoshop, LOL) but non for Dr. Espalliat. He mentioned to me that he does not post patients pictures up because he believes in patient privacy.

PLEASE ADVISE ASAP as I will be going in March 2013. (Ticket booked)

Thanks a Mil.

Not confused anymore! :-) After reading all these great reviews. I have decided on Dr. Yily. TEAM Yily!

Also, I'm 5'3" , 160 lbs. Not sure if I should loose weight (10-15 lbs) or stay as is because I'm planning to t transfer fat to by buttocks and hips. I'm waiting for Dr. Yily (or assistant) to reply.

What do you guys think and have you heard it is better to be 20lbs overweight before the surgery or not?


Thank you for your replies. After spending hours reading all these reviews. I have decided on Yily. I would like to schedule my surgery date for March 12 or 13th as I will only be in DR for 10 days and would like to recover as much as possible. Just waiting to confirm the dates with DR. Yily. @ Ensure Addict- When are you planning on going? And are you staying in a recover house?

Readybutconfused - my surgery is scheduled for March 2nd although my deposit has not been sent. Yily and I have been corresponding the past few weeks and she is aware I have selected this date do hope it's still mine!!! I'm staying quite a while (14 days) but Ill only bee in the recovery house for about a week.. Maybe a few more days after that.. If you can get in earlier we could be buddies :)
Ensure Addict- I already booked my ticket for March 10-March 23 bec I had plan to have surgery (surgery date was set and all) with Dr. Espalliat but later changed my mine. Glad I didn't send my deposit. I'm waiting for Dr. Yily's office to confirm my date for March 12 or 13th. I heard she is booked for March from other girls. Hopefully she can squeeze me in. But if anything changes I will definitely let you know. I don't mind changing my ticket to an earlier date and maybe we can be buddies. I would like to share this experience with someone that is also going through the same pain. :-)

Date confirmed! March 12th is my Surgery Date! Is anyone going around that date? If so, let me know. I need a buddy!


Hey I haven't booked yet but i wanna go around that date too and it's funny that I'm 5 3 and 163 pounds and i want the same thing you want I'm excited and nervous because you hear so much about the danger of going out the country to do surgery but I also hear a lot of positive things too.. May I ask what was your quote and does that come with?

Hey Ksumlin, there is danger in having surgery in and out of the country. There's a lot of factors that come into play. How a person reacts to the medicine, heals,etc.. and the doctor you choose of course...My quote is $3,000 and it includes liposuction of abdomen, arm, and back fat transfer to the buttocks and hips. One girdle, preoperative tests, cardiologist, anesthesiologist, and clinical expenses (one day at the clinic). Hope this helps.
Yes it helps Alot thanks

Wow that is a good price! I guess in Canada it is so much more expensive. 3x that amount. I just had a lot of lipo done in Cancun and I agree you have to do your research. Also you need to schedule enough time if there is complications. I had my 1 week checkup in Cancun and besides swelling and bruising I had a seroma he had to drain. Very common as he also uses stitches so there was less scarring. Now home 3 weeks the results are amazing. Good luck and it sounds great! I was 5'5" and 158lbs now I am 150lbs...neato

Not Happy with the results!

Hi Ladies, sorry for taking so long to update the profile. I've been going through a few person problems. Hope you all are well. Anyway.... What can I say but disappointed is an understatement. I am not happy with the results. Dr. Yily left me boxy and square. And didn't lipo my lower stomach. I thought it was just me but I met a few girls that went to her and they were not happy with the results as well. If you want a big booty she is not the one to give it to you. And if you want hips. Be ready to get HIGH hips.... I also met a few girls that went to Dr. Cabral's and hands down he is the man to go to. His work is amazing. The ladies look great just 5 days after surgery. I'm going back for round two with Dr. Cabral next year. Wish you all the best of luck!


pics would be helpful ,, did you have lipo in stomach or tt ?
