Will be having a full facelift to include jowels/neck lower lid repair/browlift, fat transfer to lips and 1 week later a tummytuck with lipo, 1 night hospital stay all included in dollar amount. In Guadalajara Jalisco Mexico with Dr Fernando Guerrero Santos, came highly recommended. I'm scared but excited and wish it was tomorrow...

I have to say i felt very comfortable with dr and his staff, more personal and kind caring treatment, ask as many questions as u like, So far to date, have emailed, sent pictures discussed prices and what looks like needs to be done over 7times. Dr Guerrero Santos always good about responding either on same day or within 24 hrs. Has offered information regarding transportation to and from airport and place to stay during post op, B&B highly recommended with Emma, includes 3 meals a day your own room for 60 dollars a day. I have already made reservations with Emma she has sent me pictures of room facilities where I would be staying and sounds like a very pleasant and wonderful person. I also take care of my mother and told her I had to figure out what to do with my mother before I came and she offered to give me the room with small living room and sofa bed to accommodate my mother for same price but 10 dollars more for her 3 meals per day. I prefer to seek aid here only because I will probably be in pain and not want my mother to be there, I will feel obligated to help her and won't be able to. She needs meds daily, oxygen machine 24/7. But I thought the offer was wonderful. Instead I am going to bring my husband to accompany me. My understanding is I will spend one night at the hospital and my husband can join me for the night. I hear it's the nicest one new and above U.S. standards, I have already seen pictures and it looks very nice. Will keep you posted. I am very pleased to date with the care I have received and this has been a very bad time for me with tons of problems while I was here during this time.
