Hi everyone! I live in San Diego and I'm seriously considering having some lipo done in Tijuana. There are two doctors that I'm leaning towards; Dr. Milla and Dr. Soberanes. Now here are my questions.
Has anyone or someone you know had any work done by either of these doctors, if so what was your (or their experiences), before during and after? Or has anyone had surgery in Tijuana with any doctor and what was your experience/results and cost. Any help would be MUCH appreciated.
Hi Karmi, I have had smartlipo done at the Versalles Clinic in Tijuana. It has been 7 weeks now and I am delighted. Dr.Lopez was my surgeon and she is fabulous. There are many posts on Versalles Clinic on this site. You should go to them and read all about the clinic and those of us who have been there. Good luck. rcraig
Woo Hoo! I am now 2 months post procedure and couldn't be more delighted. I just swa my before pictures yesterday and thought I would die! I just can't believe this new body belongs to me! I highly recommend this procedure for anyone who needs to tighten up their loose skin in the abdomen/thighs,back area. This was the best decision I ever made. I tell you Dr. Lopez is a total miracle worker. rcraig
Hi Ann Marie, glad you had a good experience in Columbia. You are one of the first to post a good experience from there. Unless you have gone to Mexico, Versalles especially, I really don't think you should tell people NOT to go there. You should stick to recommending the place that you did go to. Since I live in California, Mexico was a great place for me to go and I was treated like a queen with excellent doctors and more important excellent results. rcraig
Hi there..First of all is COLOMBIA and not COLUMBIA.. If I am not reccommending Mexico for plastic surgery is because I had friends with bad experience there.Also if you are in the world of Plastic Surgery you will find that many of mexicans are going for Plastic Surgery in Colombia or Venezuela. It's a lot better the surgeons there, also the prices are better in Colombia than in Mexico, but anyway I am not defending any country, we are just patients and not the Clinic, unless you are getting comission from any Clinic in Tijuana? I AM NOT, I am just a patient very happy with my results in Colombia. And if you are happy with your results in Mexico good for you.Hopefully this conversation between us finish here.
I beg your pardon, Colombia whatever. I have had many people, including many from this board that I have recommended the Versalles clinic to. Not one of them has had a bad experience. All have been extremely happy with the clinic and the doctors. No I don't get a commission, I wish I did. And yes you bet this conversation is finished.

I haven't been to Tijuana yet but i will be going in the next couple of months. I don't know about the two ps's you mentioned, I am going with Dr Fuentes, Cosmed Clinic.
I have been doing lots of research as to where to go for my surgery and having heard from lots of other people that have gone to Tijuana and have come back with results they are very happy with, this is where i've decided on.
You can get good and bad surgeons in any and every country, and like every country you have to choose the right ps.
All the best.

Reason: Repeated myself!
Hi Digger. I went to the Versailles center in Tijuana. I am verry happy. I am almost 4 weeks out and reallllly happy. The best thing I did was measure my self before I went. I have already lost 3 inches in my waist 2 in my hip area and 1 1/2 in my legs. As Ronnie said there are many of us happy with our results. We did our homework and now it's your turn. Best of luck and contact us with any questiions
Hi Digger, have you talked to anyone who had the procedure done by this doctor? I haven't heard of Dr. Fuentes or Cosmed Clinic. Before you positively make up your mind you should give Robin a call at the Versalles Clinic. As you can see by reading the many posts on this board, many people have gone to Dr. Lopez and not one is unhappy or dissapointed with their outcome. Whatever you decide, keep us posted and good luck with your procedure. rcraig
Thanks for your info-always handy to know of other good ps's.
I've been researching butt augmentation for quite along time now, mostly on the makemeheal forum and Fuentes appears to have consistently good results. I've read lots of feedback from his previous patients and seen lots of photos of his work from his patients so i'm satisfied he's the man. I would go with him even if he charged more, but the fact that Mexico prices are much much cheaper than the UK or US has clinched it for me!
I really wish i'd heard about him sooner! Ooh! before i forget, are either of you based in the UK? The reason i'm asking is because i'm not sure of whether to fly straight to Mexico from London or to fly to San Diego and cross the border. I'm planning on going in next couple of months if anyone's interested!
Hi there, Digger & Guys I too like many of you have been researching a great deal about SmartLipo, esp what is available in the UK, as that is where I am from. Now that I have discovered that is available inmost parts of the world that excites me as the cost in the UK is HIGH! Anyway Digger what plans have you or are you making for your pending trip, and how long have you been looking into this? Can you reccommend any sites for the Versalles Clinic?
I can't tell you anything about the Versalles Clinic as i've never been there, I'm going with Fuentes in Tijuana.
I'm in UK as well so i know what you mean about the prices-soooo expensive. And yes most other places abroad are much much cheaper!
I plan to go to Tijuana to take butt implants out then i have to wait 6 months to heal then i'll return for fat grafting to butt. Can't wait!
Been researching for a good year or so now.
Thanks for your response. As i said earlier I have been looking into this SmartLipo, esp in the UK & have found prices varying from £2200 for the 1st area then £1500 for the 2nd. The most affordable place I have found is in Manchester, where they charge £1800 for the 1st and £1200 there after, Which isn't too bad, when you consider that by the time you have added your flight costs & accomodation & food whilst staying in Tijuana, may come to the same amount. I have yet to get quotes for what I would like from the Clinic & as of yet I have not been able to find any thing on them on the internet. Do you know of any websites for them and have you spoken to any one from the clinic & been given any cost indications please?
