34, Tummy Tuck and Breast Reduction - Dominican Republic, DO

On June 16th I had my long awaited mommy makeover...

On June 16th I had my long awaited mommy makeover with Dr. Jesus Abreu and am now finally starting to feel like myself again. I live in FL so I was asked to stay for 21 days so that I could go to all my Post Op. appointments before being released to travel again. So far I am extremely happy with the results, they really exceeded my espectations. To be honest, it's an un comfortable procedure combination and since I am such an active person it's been challenging to just sit, lay down and allow my body time to heal. I still need help getting in and out of bed, removing the pillows from under my knees and having someone pull me from the back forward so that I can achieve an upright position, all of this trying to not strain both ab muscles or breast muscles. So keep in mind you will need a support system for at least 2 weeks. The most discomfort for me has been the back pain from walking hunched over. Also the swelling around the belly is annoying. Also I feel like my left breast is a lot harder than my right side but the doctor says it is normal and that it takes time to soften up. Besides that I can say I have not felt true pain on either tummy or breasts. Very excited for my second bath today at Cecilip! I am sure I will feel much better after as I approach my two week benchmark! Happy to answer any questions...
Dominican Republic Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Abreu is by far the best surgeon in Dom. Rep. He was recommended to me by a friend. I had already met a few other top doctors in Santo Domingo but as soon as I interacted with Dr. Abreu, I knew I was in the most professional and experienced hands. He takes his job seriously! We started emailing in January when I sent him photos and my wishlist. Immediately he explained that rightfully so I needed a Tummy Tuck, Breast Reduction and Back Lipo. However he would only be able to do breast and tummy at once and I would need to come back later for more. That right there gave me the confidence that Dr. Abreu would never compromise my safety for anything. That right there sealed the deal! We set the date for June 16th. I met him for a consultation 1 day prior, he examined me and we determined he would give me a C Plus breast. I explained that I have seasonal allergies and asthma and he said I would need to see a pulmonologist in order to get the approval. Mind you, my surgery was supposed to be the following morning at 7 am; the doctor I was seeing was at a different clinic and could only see me at 9:30 am. A little set back but again, another thing to show that safety is the #1 priority for Dr. Abreu. After I left his office, I went for labwork and a chest x-ray. Cardiologist saw me the next morning prior to surgery. While at the clinic during recovery, the doctor visited me twice a day, in the morning and early evening, he was always very polite and caring. He answered every question I had to my satisfaction. His staff is also very professional and helpful. The nurses were very caring and attentive. The clinic is gorgeous, what you see on the website is what you see in person. The rooms are tastefully decorated and clean, wooden floors, a/c working perfectly, beds are comfy, food is great and great cable. 3 days after I had gone home I was a bit concerned because my left breast was feeling larger and harder so I called the Dr.'s cel phone. He answered right away and asked me to come the next morning to have a look. I went in at 8:00 am, he examined me and saw that everything was fine, luckily and explained that he had worked a bit more on that side which caused the extra swelling. All was was ok! I can't be happier with my results! When I looked at my breasts I cried of joy because it is exactly what I wanted. He completely exceeded my expectations. He was able to shape them to look round, firm and the perfect size for my frame (not too large, not too small, just right!!) my tummy was flat and my incision is very thin and staight-lined. It's healing so nicely that I am positive the scaring will be un-noticeable with time. He has artistic hands and fine attention to detail! His clinic is beautiful and everyone is friendly. After the first week I was allowed a bath and scheduled my appointment at the clinic's spa (nosso). The staff was very welcoming, the spa is clean, very pretty and relaxing. The lady that bathed me had a soothing voice and after my bath (in a special tub that makes it very easy to get in and out of) she applied a body scrub that brought the life back to me! After that Dr. Rivera came in to clean my wounds and cover them up and got me back into the compression garment that I love and hate at the same time... My experience so far has been excellent! I can recommend Dr. Abreu to anyone who is looking for a true professional who pours his heart out for what he does, has the best skills, experience and a wonderful team to support him!
