Very important CONCERN I had before I went to Mexico, besides Professionalism, Knowledge and Experience of the Doctor, was The Safety Concern! So I want to assure everyone who reads my review it's ABSOLUTELY SAFE! You can go to Tijuana at any time without any problem!
As I said I'm from NJ, so after we set up a date of a surgery I flew to San Diego the day before the surgery, checked in to the hotel next to the SD Airport, called the doctor and the driver (who affiliates with the clinic), and voila, next day he was right at my hotel door, very good looking young man, with the perfect English, absolutely trustworthy, I had a Cash with me, and felt a little awkward with the stranger, but this is his job, and he wouldn't jeopardize it for my stupid money :D So we drove probably 10 mins in SD and 5 in Tijuana, clinic is very close! He dropped me off, I paid $70 (one way), (the next day he took me back to my hotel, also $70 plus tip - optional) and there I was again by myself, but hoping to see the Doctor, the only familiar face in the new town, we had a lot of phone and e-mail conversations prior, I saw her pictures online, she saw my pictures sent by me, but it took some time, before I met her, so I went through all that registering and preparation process, and just before I was going to be rolled to the operating room My Only Saver, My Doctor Came, I felt so relieved, so we discussed very briefly what was going to be done, which we knew, just never spoke face to face, I gave some suggestion regarding my eye, which I shouldn't do, and she did as I asked, now I regret it, but as I said I'm still in a recovery process, and final results are not there yet! Today is exactly 2 weeks after the surgery!
I love my new lips, as you can see on "before" and "after" pictures, results are dramatic! "After" Picture is taken right after I took the sutures off MYSELF (that's the different story) :D on a 12th day! Scars are still visible, I treat them with anything I heard of ( Medihoney Gel, Silver Wound Gel, Neosporin, Rosehip Seed Oil, Castor Oil, Mederma, ScarAway Silicon Sheets) took DermAvance Arnika Forte, Glucosamine MSM & Turmeric, Vitamin C still taking, and all the other vitamins, but best thing is probably to leave them (Scars) alone, and let them heal naturally!
Yes! Pain! There was NONE! ZERO! I remember when I was waking up after the surgery I heard my name repeatedly, felt so good, didn't know what was going but Wow, everyone knows me :D! Then conscious kicked in and first thing I said "My Eyes Hurt!" I was getting Pain Meds through IV, and that took care of the pain. But BAD swelling under the eyes and the whole face, and discomfort with eyes are plenty still now, Not with Lips!
So my conclusion is go for Lip Surgery to Tijuana! You won't regret it! Especially if you are on a budget! It's the same treatment like in America, just with less money, besides you'll meet sweetest, kindest and very caring people there! I'm glad I did!
