My Experience.. Dr Carmina is Simply the Best - Tijuana, Mexico

I would like to start by saying that this is one...

I would like to start by saying that this is one of the best decisions i haver ever made for myself even though it wasnt an easy process if had to do it again i would and i would choose the same doctor because she is simply the best..i had my procedure done on 7/11 everything came out perfect the clinic was really clean and everything in there is great the service , the facility , the staff no complaints i was really happy.. before my procedure i have already agreed with dr carmina that i wanted to go home the next day after my procedure , she insisted again and again for me to stay on her recovery house and i sad No , i really wanted to go back home because i have a 2 and a 4 year old and besides i really thought that it was unecessary to stay on the recovery and all of that ,i belived that it was only a way to get more money out of my pocket ( sorry but thats wath i really thought), dr agreed to let me go and advised me that it was going to be really hard and that i needed special cares she recommended to have a nurse at home so she sent me one from her recovery and let me tell you she is one of the sweetest persons i have ever knew she was only with me 8 hrs a day and the rest it was me by myself ..But the problem started the first night because it seems like i didnt hold the position i had to and stretch more than i should . I was treated correctly by my nurse the next day but i kept doing things wrong(when she wasnt there) , i was walking , going up and down the stairs, i even went to the store , so i ended up going back to the clinic because i started having fevers and my somach was looking weird nothing crazy but the doctor advised me to go back to tj as a preventive action for further complications i didnt had an infection but something was not right.. I was on a point that I was regreting so much having this procedure done i was crying all day worried for me for my girls and feeling selfish for putting my family through this , i went back home after 2 days in the clinic with absolute rest for 10 days i was only able to go to the restroom and back to my recliner . After those 10 days i was really getting better and following drs instructions..But i have to mention in this journey i have had one angel ( besides dr Carmina)an her name is Rocio , she has been there with me all the time sundays at midnights , weekdays at 4 or 5 am every single time i was worried about something she was there with me , calling the doctor , showing pictures , answering my questions even sharing her own experiences with me , after all a small part of my incision opened and was draining some kind o fluid but dr said it was ok , now i am 7 weeks PO and my little hole has completely closed without a problem , my body looks amazing my scar is like a scratch of course I'm swollen but every day i see the difference, i trusted dr. Carmina and she was checking on me every single day she is one of the best doctors shes sweet but honest, a really strong woman that has such an AMAZING talent on her hands, and sometimes people think that going to Mexico to have a surgery is the worst thing , that only bad things happen in Mexico and is not true bad things happen here in the US too why people don't talk about that too?? Because you spend more money or you go to a fancy place doesn't mean that you're in good hands, Is the research you do on that doctor what matters, don't choose for the price or the country choose for the best because is you're body your health and most important is your life here lady's , so if you're thinking about doing something to your body go with her .I forgot to mentioned she has previously did a breast augmentation with lift 6 months before the tummy tuck and my breast is perfect I'm in loved with myself.. Thank you dr Carmina for changing my life , thank you for caring for me when i need you the most and thank you Rocio for being with me all the time...
