I'm a soon to be 25 year old who is looking into getting a tummy tuck done. I live in Europe and the price for a tummy tuck where I live is about 12 000 USD. If I'm gonna do it here, I want the best doctor there is, but when the price is so steep, I might as well consider going to the DR where I've seen lots of amazing before and after photos and it's a lot cheaper also, plus I get a vacation!
I've previously had lipo of my tummy, sides, inner tights and upper arms (click here to read my review). However, I've lost a lot of weight since then I want a flat tummy, period! I haven't had any kids yet and not planning on having any in the near future either. I just want to be confident in a bikini for once in my life! I had the lipo abroad here in Europe, but I if I'm having a tt I want it properly done, and I don't think I will get that where I had my lipo done (Lithuania). I'm having a second consultation with the doc here in my native country who previously gave me a quote of 12 000 USD to try to renegotiate to price, but I don't have high hopes as he is considered the best in my country and probably has enough patients to pay his bills as it is, lol.
Anyway, I've contacted Dr. Cardenas in Tijuana twice as she's considered the "queen of tummy tucks" without getting any response. I've also sent her a message on Facebook, still no reply. On Friday I sent an e-mail including pics to Dr. Yily, Dr. Duran, Dr. Robles and Dr. Baez. On Saturday I got a response from Robles' assistant saying that she would get back me once the dr had reviewed my pics. Later on I got an e-mail from Baez, which seemed to be a very standard reply. I specifically wrote in my initial e-mail that I had previously had lipo and didn't want a BBL (simply because I know I don't have enough fat for this). The price she gave me was 3500 USD for tummy tuck including lipo and BBL! I contacted her again saying I only wanted a tt, and she then gave me a quote of 2800 USD. However, after having read several reviews and seen more photos of her work, I don't think she's the one I'm looking for. As Yily and Duran are both hard to get a hold of, I'm leaning towards Dr. Robles who has some amazing before and after photos, in addition to good reviews. Hoping to hear from her soon as I want to get this done ASAP! I'm wondering if anyone knows how her "waiting times" are before I can get my surgery done?
Btw, I'm 125 lbs (just lost 17, yey!) and 5'5.
