Team Carmina Cardenas! CTT w/Muscle Repair, Lipo, & BBL (price includes BeautyCare, Meds, 2 garments, massage &airline ticket)

I'm currently researching Dr.'s and leaning...

I'm currently researching Dr.'s and leaning towards Dr. Pantoja in Tijuana. Mexico. Dr. P's office contacted me super fast with alot of info I will attach email . If I use Dr. P I will definitely stay at Club Med. I already contacted Suzanne who was very helpful about about my stay at Club Med. She even said she would make sure I had a luxury room to myself yep no rookie. I'm currently still waiting on quotes from Dr. Cadenas, Dr. Campos, and Dr. Yily. I did contact Dr Jimerson in Atlanta, GA but I was quoted $16K which is way out of my budget! Here's Dr. P's office email:

Hello, thank you for sending your pictures. You are a great candidate for liposculpture. The areas we can include on the procedure of liposuction are the arms, upper/lower back, waist, abdomen and inner thighs, all the fat obtained will be used to inject your buttocks and create a brazilian butt lift, the goal will be a rounder and fuller buttocks. Keep in mind you might end up with some extra skin on your abdomen since you already have some.

I attached a few pictures for your own personal review.

The quote for this package is $3,800dlls. Once you make a surgery appointment we will require a $500dlls. deposit in order to hold and secure your date. The deposit is non-refundable but you can always re-schedule in case of an emergency. Drains and stitches will be removed within 4 days after surgery. Recovery time is 2 weeks.

Additional information about what to expect after your surgery:

You will need it about 2 weeks time off from work/school. It is imperative that when you return to your activities you do this under what is known as 'Light-duty' or with caution and wearing the girdle for the first 3-4 months. Doing this will support your back, posture, with swelling, and will aid in achieving the goal desired.

The anesthesia used is an Spinal Block and sedation. Will be provided by the Anesthesiologist, which is a certified doctor not a technician with over 20 years of experience on the field.

TEAM CARDENAS!!! Surgery 30 October 2014!!!

Ater researching Dr.s I decided on Dr Carmina Cardenas who actually called me personally to do the consultation after viewing the photos I sent to her. She is so nice and showed she really cares. I love her work and I feel that she will take good care of me. Let me list the reasons why Team Cardena

1. Personally called me.
2. Fatimah her patient care specialist also super nice and spoke to her on the phone also several times
3. I DONT have to purchase a plane ticket to Tijuana, Mexico!!! I only have to purchase to San Diego and with the extra money I booked first class so post surgery I would be comfortable!! Dr. Cardena send the BeautyCare personnel to pick me up in San Diego and bring me to the Beauty Care Recovery House where i will be staying for 10 days. THEN they will take me back to San Diego to fly back to OKC.
4. I'm getting a tummy tuck, lipo on abdomen, arms, thighs, and back and FG to Buttocks yes honey for $5K.
5. BeautyCare! Beauty Care !Beauty Care !..Dr. Cardenas personally visits with me after surgery here and I have 24/7 nursing care.
6. My deposit is $1237.50 which I will pay in a few days to lock appointment.

CTT on Deck

I was informed by Fatimeh that Dra Cardenas wants to do a CTT on me. Of course I'm a little nervous because I know thats major surgery and the recovery is probably gonna be a BEAST! Has any RS ladies had a CTT done and can provide some info?

About Me & Measurements

Hi I'm a single mom to an awesome 11 yr old son. I had an hysterectomy May/2013 so no more babies for me. I decided to do this surgery for myself because I always want a fat stomach and bigger bottom. I believe the last time I had a flat stomach was when I was 7 yrs old so that's about 30 yrs ago! I had blood work done this past Friday and my Hemoglobin is 12.1 so Fatimeh told me to take more iron 130 mg daily and start eating healthy because my surgery isn't until 30 Oct..

My measurements are currently
Bust: 38in
Waist : 36in
Hips : 42.5in
