Re: out of the country surgery

It is my opinion that you get what you pay for. And the one thing you do not want to be cheap on is surgery of any kind.

Re: out of the country surgery

Melissa, hey I am from South Texas too(Mission). I have not had anything done, but have been researching & contemplating for about two years. I really need tummy tuck(c-section,stretch marks, yuk!) & would like breast lift w/implants. Did you use Dr. Castillo in Reynosa? I have heard A LOT of good things about him!! What did you have done, what was your recovery time & stay? How much did he charge? I would love to hear from you!! Jessica

Re: out of the country surgery

They are now doing surgery in Tailand. The services there are excellent, you are attended by Registered Nurses and reside in a suite. Recovery is done at the beach - a resort they send you to once released from the hospital. They had a program on 60 minutes this past weekend. Talked to some of the patients all from America. They were very pleased. One lady paid $1500 for a upper and lower bleph. Mine cost $5057. Hospital is beautiful and extremely clean, they have state of the art equipment and a lot of the doctors have trained here. They are also doing that in India - they want to make it into the Medical Center bigger and better than the one in Houston.
