32 Year Old Needing a Mommy Makeover. Miami, FL
Picking a surgeon is so much harder than I...
Possibly changing my mind
So my quoteb from Mel Ortega was 6800 and very little lipo
My mexico quotes were 8500 to 9500 and that included lots of lipo and bbl!
I just want to make this appointment!
The issue im having right now is that he takes so long to respond to my questions, like hes very busy. It's annoying!
Going back to one of my first choices Dr Luis Suarez
I don't know
I'm back to Dr. Ortega, or maybe someone at Coral Gables?
I really like Dr. Lara in Tijuana but he's pretty bad at communicating , I keep trying to get my questions answered and he takes days to get back to me. Its really annoying because I'd really like to just make an appointment since I pretty much only have the last part of September to go!
most likely making my appointment with Spectrum Monday
The whole reason i looked into other doctors was because i don't feel like he does a super small waist, especially compared to DR, I'm assuming its due to the liposuction laws in FL. For $6800 he will be doing my breast reduction/lift and also my tummy tuck, and lipo on the flanks.
I told my husband that I'm scared i wont look that small after im done, due to the lack of lipo, but he said i could go back in 6-12 months and get more lipo if I'm unhappy with it.
Doctors in Tijuana are willing to do more lipo and BBL for about 8k-9k, but i feel unsafe about having all of those procedures at once.
Vanity was out because of the scamming that goes on there
Coral Gables was out because i didn't feel like there were enough reviews.
so that's how I ended up with Mel Ortega :)
I decided that if im not happy with the results, then I can get full body lipo in the DR and we can also make a vacation out of it.
It feels so close!
Part of the problem is I don't feel like I'm giving myself enough time in Miami, I get there the 25th and my surgery is the 26th, then I leave on the 2nd. Should I stay longer? The Dr said this amount of time was OK.
Change of plans!
I'm more excited right now and every day I feel better about going with Luis Suarez, praying he won't let me down and it all goes smoothly.
I haven't gotten on the scale recently because I haven't been eating that well and I've been so lazy due to the cool weather we've been getting, make me just want to be cozy on the couch :(
The communication between me and cer hospital has been outstanding, Cassandra emails me back within 20 minutes every time I have a simple question.
If I didn't have this stupid blood disorder, then I doubt I'd be hardly nervous, but I have been turned down by a bunch of surgeons and all the sudden he's willing to do it, so that kinda freaks me out. I don't wanna die, that's all lol.
I'm in Tijuana!
Got my blood draw as soon as I arrived. The guy fished around for my veins until I almost threw up, then they called a lady in to do it and she got it in one shot :)
Paid off the rest of the surgery and I go in at 7am!!! I'm so nervous, I have a light headache, but I'm also very excited. Wish me luck.
Woo Hoo! Its finally over!
It's day 2 and I'm pretty sore, I had to get to our hotel and it was a lot of moving around, I felt like I used my stomach muscles too much.
I'm staying at the tijuana grand hotel on the 11th floor where it's all medical rooms. Very reasonable and so nice!!
I seriously can't say enough about CER Hospital, they took such great care of me and I'm so happy I didn't end up in Miami in an out patient situation, I felt like that hospital stay was so necessary!
Met with Luis Suarez today
He said everything looks good and that my breast should even out once the swelling goes down. He said I shouldn't be walking much and to keep low for the next week and a half. Just going to my appointment wore me out.
I'd highly recommend Dr. Suarez and the Grand Hotel Tijuana, staying on the 10th floor was such a good choice, I don't know what I would have done without a hospital bed and a wheel chair!
Almost 3 months post op!
Luis Suarez did an amazing work, my scars are minimal and my TT scar is very low and he promised. Dr. Suarez is very professional and confident, which I appreciated, no one wants to go into surgery thinking something bad is going happen. He made me feel very calm and I trusted him so much. I'd go to him again for surgery. I'm so happy that someone was willing to work on me even though I have Thalassemia. He changed my life in such an incredible way, I'm finally comfortable with myself, I haven't been able to say that in many years.
