I say Mexican Facelift, but it's only a few miles south of the boarder and they even have a Medical Lane at the boarder for fast crossings should you need to get back to the states in a hurry...but not to worry there is no need to rush back as this Facility is state of the Art, cleaner and newer than most Hospitals I've seen. Dr. Quiroz an his staff are just wonderful and all speak English with 80% of his patients being from the US and Canada. I did not go there to save money, which I did and that was a blessing. I went there because of his recommendations for his work with patients who had lost a great deal of weight. My face lift was done to remove the jowls and turkey neck left hanging after losing 100 lbs. Not only did I have the face/neck lift at the same time I had a arm lift and a anchor breast lift with a saline implant. My husband and I were picked up at the San Diego airport and driven to the beautiful Center, (I felt like I was in Beverly Hills when I went inside) had some routine tests done and later meet with Dr. Quiroz. The staff arraigned a Hotel Stay for the night and the next morning we were picked up an taken to the Clinic.
Surgery was a breeze (I slept though it...lol) and woke up early evening in the recovery room where I spent the night. My husband stayed in the onsite Recovery Bouquet where I joined him the following day. I can not say enough about the recovery center, it is small and well staffed, the nurses there were very caring and made me very comfortable. I really had no idea the pain that would come with all the work that I had done. I can take a lot, and this was a lot to deal with at one time. My husbands' thought on the subject was if you are going to be in pain anyway you might as well get it all done at once. Well that was easier said than done, because the pain is three times as bad. I am so glad it is over and I made it, but the first two weeks were bad....I think my arms hurt the most as the tissue is very tender under the arms....And my neck was right up there too...felt like I had cardboard placed under my skin....but enough of all that. It is all good now, in fact it is great. My face looks wonderful, and I now have skinny girl arms and perky boobs....what could be better. After staying 5 nights at the recovery center we spent another week at the near by Marriot. (His staff arraigned our stay which turned out to be less than a Motel 6 here in the States) I had my follow up appointment and was released to travel home. A quick trip back to the airport and we were done. I traveled back 6 weeks later for a follow up visit, this time we drove in parked our car at the boarder, took a 5 min cab ride to the center, had my visit and after a quick trip back across the boarder we were back at our car at 1:00pm thus having a full day left to enjoy San Diego...I will take some pictures of my current face, my profile picture was taken last year way before my surgeries....you can see the folds in my face and the turkey neck which are all gone now!
