Many of you ask me about a good plastic surgeon in Tijuana. I have an excellent surgeon. I have had two surgeries, a breast lift in July 2004 and an extended tummy tuck and liposuction in February 2005, the latter, a 5 hour surgery. Both went great. He has a fully equipped medical facility to handle any emergency situation. The Doctor does 2 to 3 surgeries per day and is booked out 6 weeks or more and has many repeat patients. I met one when I had surgery who was on her 3rd one and had sent family members and friends, as well. If you are from out of town and are in the San Diego / Tijuana area for a short time, they will try to accomodate
you. If you have any questions, you can call me at (503) or send me an email:

A FEW WORDS FROM THE DOCTOR...
"I have a lot of friends in Beverly Hills, and we all came from the
same mother practice, training facilities. Never the less, I always tell them I'm Mexican, so I feel here at home. I think it's a great privilege to be
in the situation I am."
"I don't think these patients come here to get a bargain. I don't think you can put faces in somebody else's hands that you're not sure it's going to come all right."
"Bad doctors exist everywhere. Patients need to check credentials and get a bonafide recommendation from another patient."
