This is my second round I went to Dr Yily almost 4...

This is my second round I went to Dr Yily almost 4 years ago. I wanted to have a revision rhinoplasty but was not comfortable having facial work done in the DR ( doctors like Yily and Duran are way too busy for me to trust my face to them). I began researching and came up with Colombia. I started in Bogota and eventually made my way to Cali. One day I said you're going to be under for your nose why not get a little lipo as well. Over the course of the last 3 1/2 years I gained almost 20 pounds. I work in the evening and coming home late at night your choices on what to eat are pretty slim. So poor diet and lack of real exercise did me in.
I arrived in Cali on Thursday the 14th did blood work, and met the doctor on Friday the 15th and had surgery on Saturday the 16th. I was originally scheduled for surgery with Dr Villalobos but the vibe was off with them especially his wife. Just something about her rubbed me the wrong way and I will leave it at that. Dr Henao is not a fluent English speaker, I don't speak Spanish but he took the time to explained every minute detail of my surgery to me and still asked if I had anymore questions.
The day of surgery I got there at 6 am. The building was clean. His assistant had trouble finding a vein for the IV but that's normal for me. I met with the doctor again so he could mark me . He asked me again what what were my surgery goals. We talked about places I had fat deposits and where I would like far injected. I asked him not to make my butt huge because I don't like that. They sprayed me down with anti microbial solution I laid on the table and I was out. I woke up freezing but they had a blower and multiple blankets on me. My throat was killing me from the breathing tube used with general anesthesia. I went back to the recovery house. I woke up had surgery and I was back at the recovery house by 4 pm. I slept for hours. I asked him about the stuffing my nose with gauze prior to surgery because it's honestly just the worst feeling ever. I had it with my first rhino and shad a full emotional meltdown because I couldn't breathe. He didn't say anything but he didn't use the packing in my nose so I would be comfortable. He did say he would break the nasal bones to get a narrow more projected look. So far I am pleased and there is tons of swelling. Back to the bbl.
So I had Sunday to recover and the massages which were included in the package started on Monday. In his package you get 10 massages, medical insurance, 2 fajas, post op medicine and vitamins Etc. this time around my body is retaining far more fluid that the first time. I could literally see it under my ski and you could actually push it around. The massages have been great for it. I took over the counter pain medication for the first two days. I haven't taken any pain medication in about 3 days. didn't feel the need for the ones he gave. So a week post op my waist is measuring 24.5 inches and I was about 27 inches when I got here. I am still super swollen and needing more massages. I purchased a few on groupon.
My massages were done by his assistant Andrea who is such a lovely girl despite her not speaking much English. I've attached some pics here. Not sure what else to include but this isn't a fake review, sponsored review of any of that. As you guys can see from my profile I've been here on real self for quite some time.
Dr Alder James Henao Bonilla

I'm not one to get carried away but he is genuinely a nice guy. Takes the time to explain and make you feel comfortable. I'm very please. My one complaint would be they are always running late. Which happens with lots of doctors. Anytime I had a question I contacted him on what's app he'd get back to me with 30 minutes or so. He wild send texts to see how I am going.
