Hi everyone! After having 2 children my body has certainly changed in the areas that I want fixed (breasts and tummy). I went for a consultation where I live , San Antonio, but the cost was ridiculous for a mommy makeover. So I have family that lives close to the border by Reynosa, Mexico. They have shared with me how friends and other family members they know have gone there and have had success stories- not to mention way more inexpensive. My husband is extremely skeptical of me going to Mexico. But I've been researching medical tourism and have read about both great and not so great experiences. Anyways, I've picked Accualaser clinic with Dr. Carlos vergara - breast lift/augmentation, tummy tuck, lipo on inner thighs/hips /stomach = $9100. I am scheduling for September. If anyone has anything they can share about their experience traveling outside of the US, I would appreciate any insight.
Ok so I've made my reasonably priced down payment and scheduled my surgery date with Dr. Vergara and I'm super excited. Some of the draw backs so far... Is the lack of communication/professionalism from the office staff. I usually have to wait for for someone to call me back that speaks English ... And sometimes they don't even call back... I have to follow up.
My thinking is this... If you mostly likely to have a large clientele coming from the US, it might make sense to staff bilingual individuals in the office. I guess given the price of what I'm paying .... I shouldn't complain.
I'm also thinking of adding a little chin lipo to my procedures while I'm there. I'll have to consult with the doctor and see what he thinks.
Today is the day!!!
Since my last post, I have decided to change doctors. I originally had a consultation with constance barone here in San Antonio. Some of my relatives that live close to the border convinced me that Id be much safer if I choose a doctor from home (San Antonio). And while the price is considerably more expensive -$17900- i am very confident I will get the results I am hoping for. Dr. Barone is very experienced and seems to do a lot of mommy makeovers- which is what I'm getting. I will post pics in the weeks to come!
