Who has actually had plastic surgery in Mexico!?

I'm getting the sleeve soon and I only need to lose 100-125 lbs. my recti abdominal muscles are severed making me look 24 months pregnant and my pannus already sits in my lap now and I have not even lost any weight. My boobs are fat noodles and my arms are giant bat wings. I'm even worried about my face especially the chicken neck. I'm 52.

Can multiple procedures be done concurrently!? Like stomach and arms? Boobs and neck. Is 10k enough?

I don't know what to expect with my legs. They look pretty ok now except cellulite. It's my apple I need fixed.

Who have you gone too? What did you have done? How was the recovery!? I can spend a month in ruidoso New Mexico and drive 4 hr round trip during that time (hubby will spend some time there every week and drive back to dallas to work 6 days and be off 6 while I'm recovering in our cabin.

I can't afford a surgeon here. I have insurance that will lop off my pannus but not do a true tummy tuck belly button and all tightened up . They don't want to fix the abdominal recti muscle essentially a hernia. It really is aweful. My boobs are ruined but afraid a lift would look even worse.

Recommendations? I have 10,000$. That is it. Unless insurance pays something. Anything.

Help. Desperately seeking hope.

I haven't had plastics yet but was sleeved in Mexico. I only had positive experiences. You can join forums for Mexico surgeries and ask there. Just be sure to do your own research and talk to patients.

I do know one girl who had vsg around the same time as me went for plastics and had a total body make-over (boobs, butt, and belly) for under $10k.

Dr. Sauceda in Monterrey Mexico can do everything you want for less than 10k ..i have not been to him but i did have liposculpture on waist saddlebags and inner thighs from a mexican doctor long ago..it was fine and less expensive ..Google Dr. Sauceda he has a cult following of satisfied customers online..Usually non nictotine users in good health can have everything done at once..personally i would not want to be in a 13 hour long surgery(not sure what the longest surgeries are) or some marathon surgery ..its whatever you feel comfortable with..most plastic surgeons wont do any long operations on nicotine users thats about the only thing dangerous

I had a fabulous experience using Dr. Sauceda. I had a lower body lift, long thigh lift (from knee to groin), arm lift, breast lift with augmentation and a lower face/neck lift.
