5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Implant Free And Super Happy Thus Far :)

I just wanted to write a little but detailed review about my experience travelling out of country for a proper enbloc explantation of my implants with mastopexy and fat transfer. I first decided to get implants about 3 and a half years ago on a whim. I was actually looking to get a breast lift but the ps at the time told me it would be useless and i needed a small implant to balance out my...

10yr old implants removed by the MOST AMAZING surgeon!

Dr. Victor is the most talented & incredible surgeon ever! When I finally put two & two together about Breast Implant Illness, I began researching surgeons to perform my explant surgery. I was referred to Dr. Urzola by two friends who had recently used him for their surgery. The idea of going to Costa Rica excited me and also raised a few concerns. But after having a FaceTime...

40 Years Old, 13.5 Year Old Implants, and a Much Needed Explant and Lift - Costa Rica

I knew it was time for the toxic bags to be removed. I had been experiencing chronic neck/shoulder/back pain, as well as some other autoimmune issues and thought explanting my breast implants might help alleviate some of these things. Also, after having and nursing two children, I was also really needing a breast lift.

Very skilled and compassionate doctor

Dr. Urzola is by far the most compassionate doctor that I have ever met. He took his time answering all of my questions and made me feel at ease. It's worth a trip to Costa Rica to get the expertise and skill at a fraction of the cost. I was a little nervous about having surgery in another country but Dr Urzola and his team have made me 100% confident in my choice. I know without a doubt that...

Very Satisfied Patient - Costa Rica

Dr Urzola did my en bloc explant, lift and fat transfer. He is a true artist! Not only does he care about each patient getting their perfect results, he also cares about each person individually. He is an honest, compassionate and talented surgeon who is an expert at what he does. Going out of the country was of no concern because I wanted to go to the best surgeon for the procedures I needed...

Fat Transfer to Breast and Butt

Looking to get lipo in my abs, love handles and transfer it to my breast and butt. Reading everyone's story has helped me find my PS and pursuing these procedures even more. Have been researching the pros and cons of fat transfer to the breast and butt and definitely prefer it better then implants. Don't have a set date yet, but once I do, will be posting pictures.

Breast Explant, Lift, Scar Revision and Fat Transfer with PRP - Costa Rica, CR

After getting breasts implants 8 years ago I started having many illnesses that were unexplainable. After connecting dots I figured my illnesses started after getting implants. It was a very difficult decision to make to have them removed because there is little scientific evidence to support breast implant illness. I love my after pictures. No more sagging. my breasts are looking...

37 Yrs Old and Ready for Augmentation. Costa Rica, CR

I have spent the last 6 months researching surgeons, procedure types, various implants styles, manufacturers, patient experiences and reviews. I will be vacationing in Costa Rica this December and have decided to schedule with Dr. Victor Urzola to perform my surgery. I am very anxious but I'm also exited. The posts from fellow Real Self Members have helped a lot but there is still so little...

Never Been Better, If You Are Thinking on Having a Procedure, Dr. Urzola is the BEST Option!!! - Costa Rica, CR

I can’t imagine my body any other way; at the beginning I was very scared and had a lot of doubts. But I was very exited when I came to Dr. Urzola; I had seen several doctors before I made my decision. I chose him, and only Dr. Urzola was very specific in explaining his work, he informed me very well on past surgeries he had done, he showed me several patients testimonies and pictures of his...
