I just sent my deposit to book a surgery date and I'm wondering if anyone has had breast augmentation done with her and if they are pleased with their results. I'm also having a another procedure done by a different Dr. so my total cost quote reflects both procedures.
The patient services coordinator Raquel has been awesome. She even sent me an E-card for my birthday. She has followed up promptly and even with questions she didn't know the answers to,she went and found out from the Dr. for me.
I had planned on going with a different Dr. but I found him to hard to get a hold of. That may not be a bad thing don't get me wrong it could just mean he's that great at what he does that he is always busy doing surgery or teaching seminars or w/e but it seemed like after a week of trying to communicate with him he just stopped all efforts and IMO, that is not a good sign. I mean how hard will he be to get ahold of if I have an issue or a question after I have forked over my hard earned dollars!?
So I am not exactly sure If I doing this right or not. Injust tried posting and it said not enough content so I added the part about deciding to not go wqith the other Dr. Hope this is enough and not confusing to anyone reading.
I spent a lot of time researching all the horror stories and having really mixed feelings about it but I made up my mind and sent the deposit. I currently am not even an A cup. Just to give you some history on me, I am 36 years old married to a really great man who supports my choice and we have four children together. I breastfed all of them. I went from a small A cup, to a very large C cup. As you see I'm super tiny and after breastfeeding my ta-tas just kinda deflated and now they are empty for lack of a better word. I would like to be restored to about a large B cup or very small C cup. I put up the closest wish pic I could find to show what I'd like my after result to look like.
I'm not much of a blogger so I can't promise that my posting here will be of much help but I am so nervous I just thought getting it all out and sharing it, asking for info and feedback from all of you here would give me some comfort.
Anyone had breast work done with Dr. Almonte? I did see many positive posts on women having lipo/BBL done by her but nothing really other than her two photos showing implant surgery results.
I have just posted the payment today so I am waiting to get info back on a surgery date but It needs to be in April because that is when my PTO from work begins.
I have been doing a lot of planning and preparation for this and I will be keeping track of it all here so that anyone else who is considering surgery outside of the US can refer to it for help.
As far as planning to leave the country so far I have gotten my passport and I took the number for the US embassy in DR so that I can register ahead of time. I also bought carry on luggage and luggage locks as well as read up on the country. There is a lot of economic issues so there are a lot of people that live in poverty so therefore a lot of theft. Mainly crimes of opportunity on unsuspecting tourists so I plan on not taking my wedding ring or any expensive jewelry.
I also bought some recovery supplies and pre-op supplies. I will list them all next time I get on here because right now I am just to tired and have to be up early.
I'm so excited and nervous all at the same time so any ladies here that have had or know of others who have had BA done by Dr. Almonte please give me ALL details!! Anyone who can help me know what to expect having plastic surgery in DR, I am really in need of ay advice or feedback from others personal experiences.
This will be my first time traveling to DR and strangely I don't feel nervous at all about that part of it. Just the surgery and outcome of it. I am worried that I will not get a chance to talk about my goals at the consult or how different they may do things leading up to and during the procedure.Of course the whole thing with the deaths at CIPLA even though I am going with doctors who practice at CECIP. What if there were an issue and I can't go back to DR right away? All these things I have turned over and over in my head and so much so that my hubby and my momma are starting to have second thoughts about my decision. Anyone who can tell me from there experience not to worry? LOL The more I plan the more real it becomes and the more my nerves start to take over.
Well that's all for the moment until I can get a surgery date set then I will be posting again!!
