32 Years Old Mother of 4 Deflated Breasts - Dominican Republic, DO
I have been following this site for 2 years now...
?After I planned my 2 weeks vacation....
After I planned my 2 weeks vacation in Punta Cana I decided to start looking for options in DR, that is how I found Dr. Luis Redondo. I e-mailed him 2 weeks prior to my arrival, and he answered me the same day at 11:00 PM to book an appointment. As he doesn't work full time in Punta Cana, Apparently his main office in in another city 5 hours from PC called Puerto Plata, he could only see me in the last days of my vacation, but it was OK, I wasn't expecting much because of all the things you read from the Santo Domingo Doctors and their tide schedules and small Clinics. What a Surprise!!! to start I investigated in the Hotel about the Hospital and they all told me it was an amazing place with a really good care to the patients, again I was thinking maybe to their standars, they will not meet ours. When I arrived to the Hospital, a small Hospital but with everything you need, everyone speaks English and they even have a "concierge" service with 24 hrs assistants that speaks I dont know, a lot of languages, and then is where I found out that the hospital is considered a boutique hospital, as they call it, with a really good personal care, Spotless Clean, every one well dressed, a really good impression from the main door to the Drs, Office, even to our American Standars.
At His office the story repeated, really nice place will a Fantastic team of secretaries that actually speaks English, then I had to fill like 3 pages Medical form, so He knows all of my medical information before Hand. I did not needed to wait at all because he works with appointments and they where in time, so after I ended my forms I went straight to the consultation. Our consultation went way better than expected, he actually understood all my concerns and even convinced me that I didn't need a tummy tuck when all the American doctors were trying to force me to it, he explained that I didn't have enough skin to do a tummy tuck, and if I did one I will end with a really high scar or a vertical one that will not look good, we end up doing only Silicone breast implants and liposuction. Oh one thing, you really dont know the size of the implant you want before you try sizers. All the American Doctors told me that I needed a huge Implant 500ccs or more when I asked for a natural look nothing big, and after I try the sizers in Dr. Luis office I see how wrong they were, 500 ccs IS HUGE at least for what I wanted, so we decided for 325 ccs, Round implant, placed one part behind the muscle and another behind the breast, he explained that with that technique he will give me a natural look without needing a natural shape implant. My consultation was almost 1.5 hours and he actually hears all that I wanted to say and answer all my question, that is how I knew he was my Doctor, even that the Total Price at the end was cheaper but not that much as I was expecting, because when you add the flight and Hotel fees, There are no Recovery Houses in Punta Cana, the total price was not that low. He did told me that If I wanted to stay in a recovery House, he also performs his surgeries in another city that have a bigger same standard hospital and also recovery houses available, but I like it there so I still choose Punta Cana. He didnt have availability for the next 2 months so I had to re arrange everything and book my other flight and Hotel.
My surgery Journey was as good as the consultation. I arrived monday at 3:00PM and he said that he would only perform the surgery at least 36 hours after my arrival because of risks of having an embolism, also I spend the whole Tuesday doing Pre ops, GOOOOOD he doesnt like to take risks, they search for everything, and all included in the price, I went to a cardiologist and also my Anesthesiologist so we can decide the type of anesthesia before the surgery. and in the afternoon I sow Dr. Luis again after all the pre ops where ready and again he explained how everything was going to be. he also, do the markings that day took some pictures, that he gave after I came back, and try the binder and socks, So I was ready for the surgery. The next day, everything went smoothly, 7 Am in the admissions, filling like hundred forms, and at 8:00AM I was already dressed an ready for the surgery, we started 8:10AM and I was already out at 10:30AM. We decided for an Epidural block, and Dr. de Leon was amazing doing it, She found the place in one try and I didnt feel a thing, 10/10 to her. After the surgery I went straight to my room where my husband was waiting for me and everything was good.
I stayed 10 more days in Punta Cana, and received massages there, a really good experice, I visited 3 times to Dr. Redondo on that 10 days on his request, I dint feel like I needed to see him that much, but he insisted that he had to be sure that everything was evolving correctly before I came back to my country, and all was.
We still talk via phone and e-mail, and I have to send him pictures of me every month, as he says, he doesn't, abandon his patient and he certainly dont.
He is an Amazing Doctor and I fully recommend him, if you are worried for your safety, he is your doctor, a little bit in the high price compare to the other doctors in DR, if you choose Punta Cana, but it worth every penny, he sure gives the personal treatment that you deserves.
