After giving my deposit with another surgeon I found a facebook group where members posted pics of different surgeons and there is where I found about Dr. Irving Rodriguez. I was amazed by the pics, I decided on sending him pics for a quote just in case. He responded right away and still I was doubtful because I had given money to the previous surgeon and it was non-refundable. I spoke to my husband and showed him the pics, he was as impressed as I was. I thought about it for a couple days and then saw another patient of Dr. Rodriguez post pics and that made me take the decision to change. I was looking for an hourglass figure, I had no curves at all, needed a circular tummy tuck and also a nice butt which is hard to achieve in only 1 procedure. I also liked how he did the ctt with a "V" in the back, instead of a straight line across. I had only been contacted by Dr. Irving Rodriguez by email, but he did respond every single question I had. He did advise that I needed to loose more weight for better results but I decided to do it anyway because otherwise I would've had to wait until next December. Fortunately he had the same date of the surgery I had booked before available since I had already also booked my hotel. I came to Tijuana and met the surgeon one day before surgery. I instantly loved him! Consultation was over an hour and he explained everything, I mean everything. He also had me try on different size of implants under a sports bra so we could decide on the size for the BA (did not have that before with 4 different surgeons).
Surgery day was 12/1/2015, I am 5'11", I weighed 222 lbs and was wearing a size 12 jeans. I am 3 days po and have not weighed myself yet but he did say he took about 16 lbs of skin and fat. I started wearing my binder today and I can't believe how good I look, I go stand in front of the mirror every 30 min and just stay there for a while. I never believed I could look so good without even loosing all the weight. I have curves!! My husband loves it. I got 480 ccs implants and they're perfect. Dr said he tried on like 3 different sizes in the OR to make sure I got what I was looking for. I will post after pics as soon as I can. I spent 1 night at the hospital (CER Clinic), and the very next morning Dr was asking me how I felt. Even his anesthesiologist when to see me and helped me get up and walk (btw she is amazing too). Every single day I am getting texts from Dr. Rodriguez asking me how I feel and also have seen him in person the last 3 days post-op. Boobie drains got removed today, still have 2 on my ctt. That is all I have for now, I will update as soon as I can.
