I’m writing to share my experience with My Medical Vacations in Cancun Mexico. From the time I arrived with my husband, Katie Ana and Betty took excellent care of us. We were picked up from the airport taken to all of my medical appointments. I had some concerns about surgery and Betty spoke with me in detail and addressed all my concerns and fears. I felt conformable – safe in their care and in Cancun. I had Blepharoplasty with Dr. Torres and Rhinoplasty with Dr. Montalvo, both surgeons were excellent and truly skilled at their craft. I had daily post-surgical visit from Ana our sweet nurse, who came to our hotel to make sure I was healing properly. My overall experience was wonderful and I absolutely love my results. I´m planning on coming back in the future. I highly recommend My Medical Vacations to anyone considering cosmetic surgery in Cancun. You´ll be in excellent hands. Than you all for your care and support. All the best, Karma Shanti Virginia-USA

IMPILO PLASTIC SURGERY AND MEDICAL SPA Verified

The leading plastic surgery clinic in Panama, IMPILO PLASTIC SURGERY AND MEDICAL SPA, aims to provide sophisticated technology and solutions to patients and are committed to providing all the options and medical information available. We pride ourselves in delivering the very best quality of surgical and medical care in modern plastic surgery Panama facilities with the highest standard of service.

My experience at IMPILO Plastic Surgery and Spa (in Panama City, Panama) far exceed my expectations. I first met Dr Luis A. Picard Ami in 2009 when he did a superb job on my breast reduction. Dr Picard-Ami is licensed to practice in USA and Panama, is fluent in English and Spanish, very accessible, down-to-earth, patient and so easy to communicate with. He promptly answered all my questions by e-mail and I mean ALL of my questions, including medical, logistical, covid and general. I was so impressed with his hospitality, professionalism, as well as my new beautiful breasts, I decided to return again in 2022 for a couple more procedures. I decided not to fear international travel as Covid is becoming more endemic and I am fully vaccinated. Another incentive was that the total cost of surgery, airfare and hotel, combined, was far less than I would have spent in the USA plus I was getting primo customer service. Additionally you can pay for everything in US dollars or with credit card. IMPILO Plastic surgery took care of coordinating all of my logistics from answering my pre-departure questions, meeting me upon arrival in Panama to checking into the hotel, getting my lab tests, to surgery and back again to my hotel room. I was traveling alone and was so happy when Dr Picard-Ami sent a nurse to see me in my hotel room to help with showering and dressing changes. I also had constant communications with everyone in IMPILO clinic, including the doctor, via WhatsApp, email and on my phone via Wi-Fi calling. The doctors, clinic, hospital and spa staff were all very approachable, kind, courteous, competent and professional while also very personable and welcoming. Most of the staff, I encountered, were bilingual too. The view from the doctor’s office was incredible as was the panorama from the hotel pool area. The whole complex was pretty chilly so don’t forget your cozy sweat suit and fuzzy socks! Fortunately, the hotel can reset your room temperature controls as you need. The free breakfasts were awesome with enough variety to tide you over for the entire day if you don’t feel like going out. The rooms were well equipped for cooking and comfort. The hotel, clinic, hospital and doctors’ office were very modern, clean and connected with the shopping mall, grocery store, pharmacy and everything you could need without even stepping outside. I had several different procedures during a 3 week period of time and am very pleased with Dr. L. Picard-Ami’s surgical skill, felt well cared for, safe comfortable and secure. I almost hated to return home! Mary, Florida USA

My breast implantation surgery was performed by Dr. Luis Picard-Ami Jr at the Panama Clinic. Process was fully explained in pre- surgery telephone consultations and in face to face consultation at the clinic. Dr. Luis Picard-Ami's expertise and experience as well as his approachable interpersonal skills, not only assisted me in choosing best option for me but also made me at ease throughout the whole process. His clinic is staffed with friendly and helpful personnel always ready to assist with anything you may need starting from beverage to booking hotel room and getting post op bra. Truly VIP experience

I have had several surgeries with Dr Silvio Sterman and I consider him a brilliant surgeon. It has been 3 years since my facelift when I tell people I have had a face lift I get compliments on how natural looking it is. Both trips to São Paulo went smoothly without any complications . On my first trip Dr Silvio did a repair tummy tuck for me which I am delighted with . I had previously had an unsatisfactory result with my first surgeon in England . What can I say the trip to São Paulo was worth every mile travelled . I was met with warmth , efficient service and great surgical skill in the hands of Dr Silvio Sterman . Without any hesitation I would return to him for any future surgery I might want.

What is Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture)?

Abdominal etching (liposculpture) is a cosmetic surgery procedure where an individual’s abdominal muscles are defined using liposuction. Unlike a traditional tummy tuck that involves the removal of significant amounts of fat and skin. Abdominal Etching is best suited for those who are already close to their ideal weight since no skin and only small amounts of fat will be removed as the surgeon is sculpting the appearance of the abdomen.

 

Abdominal etching was developed in the early 1990’s and its popularity has been steadily increasing for the last 20 years. Both men and women want to undergo this surgery so they can achieve the chiseled abs and flat stomach that are eye-catching today.

 

Abdominal etching is not a weight loss surgery. If you are having weight issues then it is best to look into alternative treatments that will give you your desired results.

 

If you have already had a tummy tuck or liposuction, then you can travel abroad for abdominal etching. This procedure cannot be carried out at the same time but rather at a later date.

 

A Good Candidate for Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture)

During a tummy tuck procedure, loose muscles are tightened using stitches. Abdominal etching is only carried out for patients who already have reasonably tight muscles and are seeking to extensively define them. If you require more than what this type of plastic surgery offers, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck.

 

Abdominal Etching (Liposculpture) Procedure

Abdominal etching surgery is done under general or local anesthetic. If you choose local anesthetic, the plastic surgeon may give you sedatives as well. It is normally an outpatient procedure so you will not be required to stay overnight in a hospital. You will, however, be monitored for a few hours after the surgery to assure stability.

 

Before the surgery, the plastic surgeon will mark on your abdomen indicating where your muscles are when you flex. The markings will allow the surgeon to introduce the grooves with a special cannula during the procedure. Liposuction is carried out through tiny incisions made on your body to implicate these grooves. The incisions will take a couple of weeks to heal.

 

Average Duration of Abdominal Etching Surgery: 2-3 hours
