I wanted to share my experience with you because I am very happy with my results and I think that my experience can help you in some way, maybe you are thinking to have a surgery but you are afraid to die or to the results or maybe you afraid to travel overseas; In my case I was afraid of everything so I understand it perfectly!
I spent years unhappy with my nose and my breast.
I have been a model since I was young and everybody told me I didn’t need to have any surgery because I was already beautiful, the only one who supported me was my mother and my older sister Loraine,both helped me to do all my research, they went with me to some consultations with famous Surgeons in Florida, but it was too expensive for us to afford it so we started looking abroad.
I heard about Argentina, I met some friends from there in my work and they told me that Buenos Aires wasn’t really expensive and they recommended me 2 surgeons, I contacted them but both told me I had to pay around 8000$US for my surgeries which was more or less the same that having them done here in Miami, I contacted Cosmetic Harmony and some other 2 companies in different countries,but none of them made me feel very secure, finally a friend of mine told me that she has a friend who went to Bolivia with Makeover Travel.
I read good reviews about them and a few not nice too but to be sure about my decision I went to meet my girlfriend´s friend in New York, I saw her results and her before pictures and I was really amazed of her change so I started planning everything with my mother who kindly went with me to Santa Cruz.
The process of the trip was in a few words the next:
I contacted them , sent them pictures; 2 days after I received the Medical Opinion with some information about the trip, my package and once I talked with my mother and we decided to go, we ask for the availability , we chose a date and in a moth I was traveling to Bolivia. I sent my flight ticket so they could schedule everything for my trip and in 3 days I got my hotel reservation.
Day of my arrival: (Pre surgical tests)
After getting the results I went to see the Hospital where the surgery was going to take place and I had my first Medical Consultation.
After talking with my Surgeon(Dr.Ezaguire)who is a lovely person,very sweet and professional!
I paid for my package to the assistant of the company after confirmed all my surgeries with Dr.Ezaguire.
I had the surgery done the next day ,as planned, at 8:00am.
I stayed at the Hospital for 1 night and the next day the assistant that was uncharged to look after us went to pick my mother and I up.
While I was recovering my assistant(Beatriz) went to verify how was I feeling and then she took me to my Medical Consultations, that were about 5 or 6 in total in that 2 weeks.
Once I went back I saw only the results of my breast but not the ones from my nose because I was to swollen to see them, it took me like 5 months to see my final results!To be honest at the beginning I was too afraid of what I saw because it was completely swollen and looked horrible!!! but thanks God the shape changed and now I am completely happy with it! I love it!!!
It’s been a while since I had my nose and boobs done and I can tell you something I have no regrets and the most important it was a wonderful investment for me because now I am having a lot of work.
Concerning to Safety I must say there is nothing to worry about, once you get to Santa Cruz you will see that is a safe city, you won’t see even police in the street because it is not really necessary, people like walking a lot in the city centre, most of all in the main plaza , the Plaza 24 de Septembre.
I advise you to stay at the Royal Lodge Hotel, the Hotel is quiet but nice and worm.They also offer the Buganvillas Hotel which is a 5 stars hotel, I went to see it and is beautiful but I chose the Royal Lodge because I wasn’t going to use the swimming pool and most of all I wanted a quiet place to rest.
Shooping is good but not excellent,I found cloths a little expensive so I didn’t buy a lot of things just a pair of shoes and that’s it! But that was a while ago so maybe now is different, I don’t know.
Good restaurants: Jardines de Asia, Los Tagivos ,La Suisse and Tapekua, not too expensive and nice.
If you need any other advise let me know ;)
