The concept of “plastic surgery trip” was for me and my family a real MAGIIIC solution because we all did tremendous savings by going to south america;; of course we all know that the price should never be the most important in selecting your surgeon (or the place where to go) but when significant cost savings can be realized without sacrificing quality or safety it’s THE magic solution!
I had a tummy tuck and liposuction done in Bolivia for $2,700 and my mother went four months later to Bolivia for a complete facelift, and she paid $2,900 for her procedure. Both prices included the procedure + Stay at clinic + Stay at hotel for 10 days + bilingual assistant + transportation, more…more more and more... it’s when you compare with the cost in the united states.
Originally, my mother planned to go there for a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast lift. The company we went through quoted my mother’ plastic surgery package $7,500! She really wanted to have these surgeries done because my surgeon had done a great job on me,,but when she met the surgeon he said ‘What you really need is a facelift.’ Then she saw a photo of herself taken a few months earlier and realized he was right. She looked tired and older than 60 years. Today she loves the results of her facelift and browlift. She looks fresher, younger and feels much, much better and she can't believe how much better she feels about herself when she looks in the mirror. The healing process took longer than we thought, but the results are worth it,,, she still wants the other procedures but she is glad she started with the face.
I know that seeking cosmetic surgery in a foreign country is extremely intimidating and many people are afraid to go abroad because they think that if something is cheaper then it must be of lower quality!!, but this is simply not the case. Latin America is famous for its high quality in plastic surgery, and many physicians there have US, European or Brazilian training or board certification.
Our experience in latin america was nothing but an amazingly positive experience and we are completely satisfied with our results. I hope my testimonial will help anyone who choose to go abroad for a plastic surgery.
Hi Clk, my surgery was performed by two plastic surgeons Dr.S and Dr. S but I didn't go directly with them, I went through a medical operator, if you go with this company I don't know if you will have your surgery done with the same surgeons because I know they work with several dr.,, for example I went with my best friend and she had her surgery done with another medical team. She is also very happy with her results,, and she also had a liposuction done. But i think you can ask them to have your surgery with Dr. Salvatiera, I think they will accept. It’s a brilliant surgeon.
To respond your questions "how do you see the difference?":-) it's very easy, I don't have the big irregularities and ripple of the skin I had after my first surgery.
Look Clk,, this is my advice. No matter the place where you will have your liposuction, but you must have your liposuction with the technique of Tumescent liposuction.
This is the BEST and SAFER technique.
It’s very safe because neither general anesthesia nor significant IV sedation is required so it’s safer (No risk of serious complications, serious infection, hospitalizations, blood transfusions, and no deaths!!). tumescent liposuction has an outstanding safety record.
And aesthetically, tumescent liposuction (done with microcannulas) is the least likely form of liposuction to cause any significant or noticeable post-surgical irregularities of the skin;; because the tumescent technique permits more accurate removal of fat, with greater assurance that the liposuction cannula will not inadvertently approach too near the undesurface of the skin and thereby cause skin irregularities or rippling of the skin.
