I am so nervous and excited at the same time. I scheduled my surgery date with Dr. Campos in Tijuana, Mexico for February 28, 2013. I will be getting lipo on my stomach, upper and lower back, then have the fat transferred to my buttocks and hips.
I was charged $4,445 by Angie (Dr. Campos' assistant). I will be flying from New York to San Diego and will be picked up at the airport and driven to Tijuana by a representative of Club Med. I chose Club Med because of the great reviews I found here on RealSelf and also because it is located on the beach and I want to feel like I'm on some sort of a vacation. I will be staying at Club Med for 8 days and was charged $1,050.
I would love to hear from you guys. Any advice on what I should pack will be greatly appreciated. Also, if you guys have any question, feel free to ask. I will post pics soon. xo

Hey ladies, I just got here to Dr. Campos'...
I just got here to Dr. Campos' office and he just finished giving me a consultation. I must say, Dr. Campos' demeanor and professionalism is suburb. His staff is wonderful and highly skilled. His office and surgery rooms are extremely pristine and modern. It makes you feel comfortable and at ease.
During the consultation I was a little upset bc Dr. Campos might not be able to lipo my upper back completely due to me having more skin than fat. Blame it on genetics. :-( Also he might not be able to transfer as much fat to my buttocks bc my skin is so tight. But he told me to trust him, that he will give me the body I want. He wants to give me a flat tummy, a small waist and some hips and booty.
Hopefully, I love the results. :)
Right now, I just received 2 pills - 1 to help calm my nerves and the other to put me to sleep. I won't get my surgery done for another 2 hrs because someone else was ahead of me.
I'm getting sleepy now, but will try to answer as many questions as I can.
P.S. Dr. Campos is finnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeee lol

Word of advice to all you ladies coming to Campos, beware of Angie and her BS ass promotional massage deals. She knew I would be leaving on Friday but still offered me this "great deal" of buying 5 massages and getting one free. What she didn't tell me was that you can't even get your first massage until you're 2 days post op and 3 days post op if you had a tummy tuck. So how the hell am I going to get all 5 plus my free massage if there are not enough days and they are not opened on Sundays? Also, you have to come to the office for each massage which is like a 20 minute ride from Club med. It hurts like hell to travel on those rocky roads for all that time. Don't believe her also when she says Maripaz can give you the massages where you're staying. Maripaz goes to the recovery homes to do massages as a side job. The massages you pay for at the office, she does not do those massages at your recovery house.
If 2 massages are included in your quote then get the first massage done at the office and the last, all other massages in between you should pay Maripaz under the table when she reaches your recovery house. And if no massages are included in your quote then only pay for one massage at the office bc you have to get your first massage done there. All other massages deal directly with the masseuse Maripaz.
Angie is a crook and tries to get more money from you. She had the nerve to try and charge me an extra $600 for upper back fat removal at the office when by email she said if I decided on the upper back fat removal she would charge me am extra $200.
All in all Dr. Campos is great but the way he runs his business money wise is a mess and Angie is a crook.
I chose this provider because of the hourglass shape he gives his clients.
