Facelift in San Miguel De Allende, by Dr. Koelliker $6,900, Loved His Private Retreat Spa Club Casa Marino - Mexico

Thank you Dr. Koelliker, the support given by you...

Thank you Dr. Koelliker, the support given by you and your wonderful staff cannot express my joy. Actually I met Dr. Koelliker on a prevous trip to San Miguel when I had him do some botox. After that I realized I really needed a full facelift and I liked him so much. I came by myself. ,Faceliftmexico made all the arrangements. Your bi-lingual patient liaison, Fabiola was such huge help. She took a taxi to town with me to help with the pharmacy to order my meds and to even Help exchange monies. Was so helpful with everything. Casa Marino retreat where I stayed for 10 days ( first 3 nights in the hosptial and 6 more there) is awesome, my surgery buddy who I met in the hospital was a joy to share my experience with. Casa Marino is 5 star. It is lovely and so clean, I loved the beds, flowers everywhere The weather in San Miguel in AUG was middle 70's in the mountains. 6,000ft elevation. Magical.

Dr. Koelliker performed a full facelift, surgeon fee was $6,900 U.S. dollars. I had quotes in U.S. from $20,000 up for same procedure, which included: Except for the lip fat. He did NOT use general anesthesia. His M.D. anesthesiologist attending in the O.R. used Iv sedation and twilight sleep. I had no after effects nausea ,etc. Much safer than a general. I dont remember anything .

1. temporal forehead lift
2. upper/lower eye lids
3. mid -face with SMAS technique (this is the real secret, he minutely raises your cheek muscles back up to where they were, I think when I was in my 20's)
4. neck lift
5. Optional and I am glad I did it for extra $600 I had the lip fat transfer to upper/lower lips (after 60 your lips start to flatten out)

I arrived at the Leon airport the day before surgery and was met by their bi-lingual driver and taken to San Miguel to spend the night as I had a dental appointment the next day. Then I was driven to the the Guadalupano Hospital (where DR K has his office) in Celaya City a 45 minute drive. The driver helped me register and took me to my private room where Dr K was knocking on my door shortly after . They put me through a full pre- op work up to be sure I was OK for surgery VERY thorough. (They also ask for a blood panel and EKG to be sent prior to arrival for a prequalification) .Surgery the next morning, one more night in hospital and 4th morning, my driver drove me to the lovely retreat in SAn Miguel de Allende another 45 minute drive. I spent the next 6 nights there being monitored, pampered and all my needs were met. The food was delicious. Again I have to say I went alone but did not feel the need for anything . Dr K pays much attention to you during YOUR first consult and listens to what you expect for a result and the first time I met him in my hospital room was about 3 hours all total and I could not be happier with my results. He gives this attention to all his patients ; He has a bedside manner not to be matched and all his patients feel this way. Thanks to Dr K, the wonderful staff at Casa Marino ( I felt so pampered by Fabiola she even took me to town to show me around for a shopping trip and we had lunch) and to Pat Marino, her husband Greg. $l,900 was the cost for one person for the 10 day hospital/recovery package including meals. I could not have asked for a more secure feeling and environment to recover. I am leaving today and feeling a little sad. i went out to explore the town about the 5th day and shopped until I droped LOL. It was a wonderful way to have surgery and a vacation. Oh, one more thing on my previous trip I had a tooth implant in San Miguel and had to wait 3 months to see the dentist for the final cap so I had this done too with Pat's help and coordincation with my dentist. SO I am going home looking so much younger and with my new implant in place.

One more thing; dont be afraid to send your money to Faceliftmexico . My bank in error sent her $10,000.00 instead of the l900 for the hospital package. SO, we had to have Faceliftmexico refund me the 8,100 by PAY Pal; what a mess but she handled it ASAP.
Love this surgeon, ( he comes to the retreat to see you to remove sutures adn for your final visit to clear you for travel home. you dont have to return to the hospital) San Miguel and Faceliftmexico.
