Tummy Tuck, Breast Implant, and Brazilian Butt Lift - Tijuana, Mexico

Hello , im writing in case my information can help...

Hello , im writing in case my information can help anyone on this site.
Im 30 years old with 4 kids age 15, 12, 3 and 2
i am 5'4 190 lbs
After 4 pregnancies and many, many diets and 15 years of struggling with my body and my weight i felt like surgery was the best option for me. its fair to say that i have never been too active but i have the motivation it takes to change my life and habits now that im still young.
so i was looking for the best doctor at an affordable price , came to find out that it was hard to get , at least in the US , i went to a couple of consultations here in the US but realized that i couldn't afford it so i either had to wait and save more money since i was paying cash OR go to MEXICO and i really didn't want to wait so i started doing my research and chose a doctor :) in TIJUANA , MEXICO
they did what they call a cyber consultation , i sent my pictures and the next day they gave me a quote of $5,900 DLLS for the 3 procedures , i personally think its a GREAT PRICE , and to be honest i didn't feel scared to have my surgery done in TJ , i don't know if its because im mexican , or because i lived in TJ in the past but at no point did i feel insecure that this is what i wanted to do and felt like i did my homework and chose a good DR, during the process from the beginning to now post op the staff at CER CLINIC including DR LUIS SUAREZ have been professional & ethical they have answered all my questions time after time without making me feel like im a bother to them also the clinic is clean and by what i seen he has a lot of clientele.

This is what i remember from the day or the surgery , i went in 7/4/2012 at 9:00AM
the operation started like at 11:00AM didn't finish until like 4 or 5 PM
When i woke up my and started talking i felt like i was going to vomit so i tried not to do anymore talking , i slept over at the clinic and the day after the operation the clinic transferred me to the hotel that was located less then 10 minutes away, at that point the only pain i felt was if i cough or sneeze , it felt like my stomach was gonna come out :( other then that i haven't had any significant pain , im still walking a little bent but its normal since it hasn't been 2 weeks , my stomach still feels numb , by what i see the scar is heeling good and its too early to see the final result but so far im happy with what i see
oh i forgot to mention i spent 2 nights at the hotel and then spent about 6 hours on a car ride : /but it was ok cause i had no pain :)

i dont know what else to share, if you have any questions feel free to ask :)

Ok. So was it considered something like medical leave, also how much time did they give you off? Thanks
  • Reply
Yes, medical leave that is unpaid. My husband is taking 2 weeks off to help me, I am taking 4 weeks off. But I am having a 360 body lift in October.

I think you need a little more then 2 weeks for a T/T Dr S is great and your gonna be happy
When I was 2 weeks post op I called work to request a little more time of because I didn't feel ready Si just make sure you have extra time, as far as the TT goes I don't find it painful but the Lipo is so just make sure you do your homework Si that everything goes as expected, good luck and keep me posted.

I am going to see Dr. S , for a TT and lipo in the inner and outer thigh, I am super excited, I scheduled the surgery for 8/31, but I think I am going to need more time off, they advised me I would need at least 7 days of recovery.

Yea you probably would know, I have no fluid at the top but if I press on my lower abdomen you can feel it moving to the top, so gross, I can't wait to have a flat tummy, I get so down but I guess patience is a virtue, I still don't know how to post pics...lol
  • Reply
Good, at least he took care of you in time,I was asking you because I feel my stomach a little swollen but I don't feel liquids moving around.
Good luck and keep posting

@NEWGIRL2012 my tummy didn't just look swollen it was like fluid was moving around also. I talked to my friend across the street from me( who happens to be a nurse, she was also there when I had the tt) and she told me to have it checked out, sure enough the dr has had to drain me twice, he said its not infected and it wouldn't alter my results...Yay

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am trying to find a book a surgeon now in Mexico. I have had my quote with Dr. Suarez and I love the price. Trying to make sure it is safe and affordable. I need a 360 body lift, inner thigh lift, and boob job and lift. I have lost 135lbs and my skin is in horrible condition now. These pics give me hope. Trying to see HOW long I would be done for though. Please keep sharing! thank you so much!

I am waiting on my quote now for a dog ears removal, and liposculpting for my BBL. Do you like the results from your BBL, how many CC's did you get injected and drafted into your buttocks?
  • Reply
I can't really tell the difference on my BBL but that's something that I'm going to discuss with my doctor when I go this Saturday, one of the doctor assistant said that I got 200 cc's on each side which I think it's too little so I'm gonna wait and talk to him to see what he says.

What do you mean by dog ears?
  • Reply
some women get dog ears after a TT. I don't know how to explain it other then to say it is a bulge from hip to waist that sticks out and not a straight contour.

Hi Karen,
Congratulation on your tummy tuck.
Can you please post some pics of your scar?
  • Reply
hello Gina , I try to post more pictures tomorrow :) i believe theres at least one there with my scar :)
  • Reply
Thank you. I actually went to Dr. Suarez to remove dog ears after my original surgeon only wanted to do lipo for the dog ears, which would only make it worst. After searching and consultations with 5 different doctors, Dr. Suarez seems to be the one on top of my list. Dr. Suarez was amazin, in the consultation he noticed my incision had been stiched through the inside and outside which didn't give me that nice looking scar. He suggested a nice thin incision, which would result in a nice thin scar . I had my scar revison and dog ears removed on July 19, 2012. So far, I love my new belly button, but I still can't see the incision.
Your incision on the pics looks nice and thin.
