I have known of several women who have gone to have liposuction and plastic surgery in Monterrey, Mexico and come back in very sad conditions. One of them is now in a vegetible stage due to too much anesthisia. Others have gone for plastic surgery and come back with unbelievable cuts and infections where US doctors have to re-do the surgery and they are left with bad scars from the first surgery performed in Monterrey. With all the drug cartel activity in Mexico I would not go either as a tourist nor for any kind of surgery. If anything goes wrong over there you cannot sue the doctors/hospitals because it is not your country of orgin.
You can sue them anyways.

I agree with Nancy, Monterrey is a huge city with Universities, great Hospitals, etc. People here in the US just listen to the news and the news only reports bad news.
When someone has some successful surgery, it goes unreported, if something real bad happens, it'll be on the front page.
A friend of mine went to Monterrey to have that laser surgery, now she doesnt where her glasses anymore, and she feels a lot better about herself. All for half the price.
Oh, my uncle Beto went to Mexico the other day to have some false teeth made, in Camargo, right here on the border, across from Rio Grande City, for about 1/3 of what he was asked to pay here.
I'm sure bad things do happen in Mexico, but double that happens here in the good ol US of A. The general population has this misconception that only American people can do anything, they just dont get it, all people in all places can do stuff, not just us. Why pay 2 or 3 times as much?????
I love my Mexico doctors

I had two surgerys done in Piedras Negras Coahuila, Mexico for kidney stones removal, here in Dallas, TX they wanted $15,000 dls. In Piedras Negras $1600 with great results.
It's a great advantage.
