Tummy Tuck Buttlift and Liposuction - Dominican Republic

Im 32 years old from the south Bronx. I had a son...

Im 32 years old from the south Bronx. I had a son 11 years ago who left me with strecth mark's and loose skin. Unfortunately exercising and eating healthy does not fix my problem. :( I've always wanted this procedure done. But never had the money. Im ready to get my life back and feel confident once again.

the day is getting closer and im so nervous.

The day is getting closer and im extremely nervous... im kinda not feeling the fact that Dr. Hernandez doesn't speak to his patient until the day of the surgery I have so many question about my high blood pressure. Hopefully he gets back to me:(

bacteria going around in plastic center in santo domingo

Im so afraid now. I saw in the news today in univision a young lady who almost died by a bacteria from a tummy tuck that was performed today by a female doctor. From what I heard it was a bacteria that's been around the clinic and RH. I need to find out which female doctor works in plastic center. And when I do I will definitely post it.

so finally found the courage to post my body pics.

Dr.Alejandro Hernandez finally e-mailed

A greeting e-mail reminding me what vitamins to take. Very professional and polite and no need to rush to make the deposit. As soon as March 1st 2014 arrives his secretary will remind me. He also has a bank account here in the which is which is also great and convenient

I can't wait im so excited, im not nervous as for now maybe when i get there. my aunt will be by my side the day of the surgery :) im getting on the lemon diet because for some reason I can't stop eating :( i wanna lose 10lbs so that i can a better result.

15 days left

So im almost ready...

10 days left before I leave to DR.

10 left before I leave and I must say im not nervous at all. :) before i leave i need to get my physical done. let me start off by saying plz dont share your journey with negative ppl who won't understand you. keep a positive circle trust me it will help with the transition.

my current weight.

I did the cleanse for 5 day. Now im on the Atkins diet which I always have been. But fell off for a while. Now im refocused and determined. Reasons why I wanna lose 5lbs more simply because my tummy tuck will look better and the doctor will have more skin cut... for those that wanna lose weight I would definitely recommend the Atkins since im a meat lover and I love my fried wings I can definitely enjoy and not gain a anything.

I need help.

Im trying to buy a lymphatic machine for when I come back from DR my boyfriend can do the massages for me. If u ladies find anything let me know. However I came across this and im wondering should I get it... I need help ladies :(

Dominican Republic Plastic Surgeon

I love my results I know I made the right decision coming to DR and having my surgery done by Dr.Alejandro Hernandez Pizzioglio. He's one of the best. His bed side mannaer was excellent. He's very attentive and most importantly he truly cares for his patient..his assistant Laura is a doll she will assist you and what ever you need. And they both speak English and Spanish. I would definitely recommend to any of my girls.
