I received a quote from Dr Yily & Duran. Yily's quote was cheaper including the stay at one of the RH. Duran was $2000 more and didn't include much. Also, another thing I didn't like about Duran's quote was that she gave me (2) quote $4200 for Lipo & BBL, then another quote for $5100 for a tummy tuck, Lipo, and BBL. She wasn't able to tell me which one I would need without a consultation.
First of all I didn't ask for a quote including a tummy tuck, so how she going to tell me what's best for me lol... Do I look like I need a tummy tuck? Please be honest.
Which Dr is better?
Yily it is!!!
