Hello everyone, i want to share important information about
Choosing a  Plastic Surgeon that you can trust In The Dominican Republic
Plastic surgery involves many choices. The first and most important is selecting a member of the Dominican Society of Plastic Surgeons (SODOCIPRE) surgeon you can trust.
SODOCIPRE member surgeons meet rigorous standards:

Pass comprehensive oral and written exams
Graduate from an accredited medical school
Complete continuing medical education, including patient safety, each year
Perform surgery in accredited, state-licensed, or hospitals-certified surgical facilities
Do not be confused by other official sounding boards and certifications.

Sincerely Yours.

Brazilian Butt Lift

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
Brazilian butt lift is so popular because it enables your plastic surgeon to transform your entire shape. Liposuction is performed over several areas depending on the individual patient needs, but typically of the flanks, abdomen and back.

It is important to have several consultations with board certified plastic surgeons. Also make sure that your surgery is being performed in an accredited surgery center or hospital.

It is important to ask the right questions during your consultation:

  • 1.Is your surgeon a board certified plastic surgeon?
    • a.Be sure he or she is a plastic surgeon, there are a lot surgeons that are cosmetic surgeons or board certified in other fields other than plastic surgery. They do not do the same training as a plastic surgeon.
    • b.You can check the American Board of Plastic Surgery website for a list of plastic surgeons in your area.
  • 2.Does your surgeon commonly perform this procedure?
    • a.Ask to see before and after pictures or look online for reviews on the procedure.
  • 3.Where is the surgery performed
    • a.Is the procedure performed in an accredited surgery center or hospital?
  • 4.Who performs the anesthesia for the procedure?
    • a.Is an anesthesiologist performing the anesthesia?

Thank you for your question! It is never wise to go out of your country for any plastic surgery.  You always want to be close to your doctor if any complications may occur.  Remember cheaper is not always better and you get what you pay for.  Best of luck!

Have your plastic surgery close to home. Medical tourism is a bad idea.

Do your live in Ohio or D.R.?  Your email suggests Ohio.  You need to have your plastic surgeon available after surgery.  So if you live in the D.R., have surgery there.  But if you are in the U.S., stay here.  The cost savings are not worth it.  Complications do happen and follow-up care, including revisions, are frequently necessary. You can check the ASPS website to see if a plastic surgeon is a member.  There are many international members of this society.

You can verify if there is a state registry. Seek a plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of these procedures, has great reviews and photos, and is an expert in this field.

         About 25% of my patients have had previous liposuction and Brazilian buttlifts.  I perform about 500 Brazilian buttlifts each year, and this procedure is the most surgeon dependent plastic surgery procedure.  Much of the grafting result depends upon the techniques utilized and the postoperative care.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
