I am 38 years old, 5'4" and 120 pds. Live in San Antonio. I'm going to Colombia soon for breat augmentation w small lift, butt implants and lipo in waist, lower back and abs. I'm planning to stay for 17 days (2 days before surgery) and 15 more. I'm nervous because I don't want stitches after 15 days, here in US I don't believe a doctor will take them off. Is that possible? May I be completly heal by then? May I sleep on my back w/ pillows assistance in back and under buttock?

Thank you for your question! It is never a good idea to go out of the country for cosmetic surgery. Remember cheaper is not always better. Best of luck!
