I have read alot of the
posts here and I agree and disagree with many things read. I happen to be someone who has had many cosmetic surgeries. I have done 5 procedures here in the USA and 2 In South America Colombia. My experience has been in the USA I have definitely had good treatment but I was not always satisfied with my results. Not that the US Surgeons did a poor job but when you get up the nerve to get surgery you want to see results and what I noticed was when I had lipo here in the states 2 times I went back to work and of course my co workers that knew I had surgery new but the other co coworkers said you look a little different or something is different about you. Then I went for a butt implant surgery in the USA and over all I was completely dissatisfied with the results. It did not live up to my expectations. Then I had a face lift here in the US with Dr Man in Boca and the results were very good but at a price of 22,000 dollars. I then had a friend who had had surgery in South America and I was so impressed with her results. I took her recommendation of a company to use there Cosmetic Harmony I went first for a liposuction there. When I returned back here to the states I had experienced something completely different. All of my coworkers that did not know where I went were like wow you look amazing you look so young you look so skinny. I was very shocked as I did not realize it was that much more noticeable. I asked a friend of mine who worked in a cosmetic surgery office in the US and she said that was because South American Doctors are used to working on people that want to see results. What a South American perceives as beauty is not what the US people perceive and she said what she meant was they want perfection and will settle for nothing less and in the US they simply just want to look better. I have to say if I am going for surgery I want perfection and not just to look better. After that I decided to go back to Cosmetic Harmony and get my butt implants taken out and get a Brazilian butt lift. I have to say by far the best surgery decision I ever made. I got those ridiculous implants out of my butt and had the fat transferred from my sides, flanks and back to my but. The results were amazing I have the best butt even now. So here is my analysis of what everyone is talking about. Being a person who has had surgery in both the US and outside. In South America due to the lower cost of surgery the surgeons have far more experience to there us counterparts simply because they perform more surgeries. In the US the cost of course is much more and I do see people here saying it is equal in the US. They are completely wrong and here is why. In the US yes the surgery price may be similar in some cases but you are comparing a no name doctor here to a top notch surgeon in South America. So apples to apples it is not the same. Then you have the cost here in the us which they never tell you there are all these extra fees. girdles, anesthesiologist, medicine, bandages blah blah blah basically in the end you will 1000000% pay at least 40-70% more here in the US and you certainly will not have a top notch surgeon work on you here in the US. However if you truly compare apples to apples you will pay double if not triple here in the US for the equivalent down in South America. Those are my thoughts and I hope it helps someone you make your decisions

Plastic surgery is NOT affordable to everyone. What an absurd topic. Many people in the United States can't afford life-saving medical care. I know a young man who died of juvenile diabetes in his mid-thirties because he could not afford to manage it properly.

I can say that I am very particular about my health, always take good care of myself and exercised regularly. But, there were certain areas of fat that just wouldn't go and this was starting to affect my self-esteem. I started hating my body for all that fat deposits. I also wanted to undergo a breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.

After I read about the cosmetic surgery abroad on the internet, I started exploring options in South America. Mainly in Brazil, Bolivia and Argentine.
I came through MakeoverTravel in Bolivia and just thought of putting a query. I was sure I was not going to Bolivia for the procedure. But the way, Monica handled my queries, I must say was too good. She had answers to all my questions and answered all my queries very promptly and to my complete satisfaction. I was shown the CV of the doctor, the details about the hospital and all that I asked for.

But deep down, I had apprehensions, but only till landed in Bolivia . I was received at the airport, was taken to the hospital. The doctor and the hospital staff were very nice and I had a wonderful experience going through MakeoverTravel. I recuperated in Santa Cruz after the surgery, which I must say everyone should visit while in Bolivia.

A real great experience for me. My results are amazing. I paid 7000US$ for a full liposuction + rhinoplasty + my breast augmentation + 14 days in a five stars hotel.
Compared with the costs of plastic surgeries in United States itís very cheap.
I highly recommend MakeoverTravel in Bolivia for your plastic surgery.
Brazil and Argentina are also very good options for plastic surgery outside your country

We all are having different mind sets about cosmetic surgery. Some consider it as an enhancement to beauty while some donít think so. Everyone has his or her own views. Basically Cosmetic surgery in Miami is all about getting rid of damages like scars or any birthmarks.

My name is Karina and I work with Cellport International. We provide breast enhancement using CAL (Cell-Assisted Lipotransfer) Soft Tissue Augmentation. This procedure, developed in Japan by Dr. Kataro Yoshimura, uses the patient's own stem cells and aspirated fat to augment the breasts. The augmented breasts appear and feel very natural without many of the risks associated with conventional implants. We are very proud of the success of this procedure and simply want to inform as many people as possible about safer alternatives to conventional breast enhancement.

If you have any questions about this procedure or wish to receive more information, please feel free to contact me. My email address is [email protected] om
