5 out of 5 stars Facelift

SMAS FaceLiftMexico San Miguel de Allende Mexico

Dr Guillermo Koellicker - What are the most important attributes of a great surgeon? Skill, professionalism, respect from and to staff, thorough, empathetic, and one who will place your health above all else. Before Dr K schedules a surgery date, a full blood panel, medical history, and EKG is required. Your hemoglobin must be 13 if having multiple procedures. Mine was low & he was clear that if it was not at 13, only 1 procedure. In my case breast implant & capsule removal. FaceLiftMexico arranged for a driver to pick me up at the airport and take directly to the hospital. The driver stayed with me to complete the admissions process and walked me to my room. His degree is in hotel management - Impeccable English & the demeanor of a Ritz Carleton concierge. Within 15 minutes, Dr Koellicker came to my room to discuss the procedures and outline the necessary pre-op tests. Blood was drawn; EKG run, then I was offered lunch. The Internist, Dr Gomez reviewed my test results with me and Dr Koellicker came by to give me the schedule. No food/water after 10:00pm, nurses would wake me up at 6:30am to wash my entire body with Betadyne, especially my hair; 7:00am IV insertion; 7:30am Markings on face & breast; surgery at 8:00am. The nurses and I used Google Translate which was comical, yet effective! What makes Dr Koellicker stand out - when he realized after 2 hours of removing and cleaning silicone out, he would not perform the lift and insert implant. He brought me out to tell me I needed to wait 6 months. He was firm that it was not the best for my health nor for a good result. On Friday, an equally accomplished driver transferred me to Casa Marino (B&B Spa) where Fabiola met me at the front door. She handled getting my prescriptions; settling in my room (really a suite) and going over the "rules"...NO SMOKING EVER and no Alcohol or caffeine until Dr Koellicker gave the okay. 4 days later, Dr Koellicker came to me for follow up and removed stitches. I'm a "bruiser"--pushing up against a hard object will leave a bruise so I took every preventative and still bruised WHEN I SLEPT on my ride side the day after surgery. Did not try that again! At the post op visit he prescribed an additional anti-bruising Med which has helped tremendously. He came back the next day to check on me and Nancy, who had surgery the day before mine. Of note, Dr Koellicker operates on one patient per day. Not all his patients are coordinated through FaceLiftMexico. There are 2 suites at Casa Marino which limits the max number of patients to 4, if you come with a friend. The financial integrity I've experienced with Pat Marino is exemplary. She caught my error of overpaying by $1,000 and because I did not have the secondary portion of my breast surgery, the fees were refunded and I never broached the subject. A refund check was left in my room by the 3rd day. The package stays at Casa Marino are designed to ensure a safe, quick recovery. If anything goes awry it will be within the first 5 days and Dr Koellicker wants to be able to address immediately. Frankly, I could have flown back to Houston but opted to stay not just 13 days, but 16. Pat immediately indicated she would adjust the rate if I chose to leave early. I still have 5 more days of this cool, mountain air to enjoy before going back to Houston. I could add more to the list of helpful benefits but then I would be entering into that scope of "flowery" language. In a nutshell..using FaceLiftMexico was the perfect option for me. Working in a very contentious environment, with children who would freak out if they saw their Mom laid out, a husband who owns his own business who would wonder why did I not line up care. (Well, dear it does not exist in Houston for less than $400/day.) Emotionally and physically a bargain. And, I have my face from 15 years ago!!

Facelift and Tummy Tuck by Dr.Koelliker in Magical San Miguel Allende, Spa Retreat Casa Marino - Mexico, MX

Dr. Koelliker was wonderfully patient and kind. I always felt like I was in good hands. I never once felt stressed or unsure about what was going on. The nurse at the hospital were very, very attentive.

I'm 65 (almost 66) Facelift, Eyes, Neck and Tummy Tuck surgery done 4/8/15 by Dr Koelliker in San Miguel de Allende, MX

I love my results and Dr Koelliker. Had a great experience, (well, except for occasional discomfort and insomnia, but that was taken care of by Dr K, ASAP), the hospital is small but well equipped, very well staffed, you have 2 board certified PS's and an MD anesthesiologist in the OR. The nurses are great, although some don't speak much English, we managed to communicate fine. I absolutely loved San Miguel de Allende, it is so beautiful. Couldn't complain about one thing at the Casa Marino Recovery Spa, Fabi and Pat go out of their way to care for, comfort, feed and entertain you. The Casa rooms are pure comfort. I had a beautiful room with a private patio, an electric recliner, a large screen TV with Netflix, there are also several hundred DVD's to choose from, Greg, Pat's husband is a movie buff. Dr K visited me at the Casa 3 times in my 10 day stay. Included the incident where I foolishly, accidentally ripped the sutures out of both earlobes and had to have them redone just when they were due to be removed. That's the only time I saw him frown! The lobes were numb and I use a headband to hold my hair back when washing my face and just kind of forgot to be careful, boy did I feel dumb! It's all good now. At this point, almost six weeks I'd give him 10 stars. I kinda wish I'd had a bit of a brow lift, but when he asked I adamantly said no! Oh well, now I have an excuse to go back at some point! I would have loved having more time to explore San Miguel as I had to take it easy with the TT. I am one happy camper! I highly recommend Dr Koelliker, if you want a natural looking refreshed look. If you want something more dramatic go elsewhere! This is exactly what I wanted....

64 Years Old, Facelift, Neck Lift, and Eyes - Mexico

Absolutely the most attentive doctor I've ever experienced. Don't be afraid to make this trip – it may be a bit outside of your comfort zone but you will receive attentive medical care that you would never receive in the US.

55 Years Old, Face and Neck Lift - Dr. Koelliker, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

I wanted to find a Dr. who was highly skilled, affordable and conservative in his approach. I found all this in Dr. Koelliker. He is very experienced, thorough and professional. I was met by a driver at the airport who took me directly to the hospital in Celaya where I met Dr. Koellliker. We went over the procedure, discussed all my questions, and what would happen. I had additional testing done - EKG and blood work - which reassured me that I would be receiving thorough care. The facelift was done the next morning, and I really appreciated having IV sedation with local anesthetic, versus full general anesthesia. The latter is rough to recover from. Having IV sedation meant that I awoke easily without any nausea, etc. The care in the hospital was very good. I had my temps and BP checked by nurses regularly, and Dr. Koelliker visited me 4 times a day to check on me. I spent two additional nights in the hospital after the surgery, and left on Day 3. A driver arranged by Pat picked me up and drove me to Casa Marino. Dr. Koelliker visited me at Casa Marino on my 5th day there to remove the stitches and answer any final questions. Overall I highly recommend Dr. Koelliker for the facelift procedure. I am very happy with the results I see so far.
