Plastic Surgery Center - Dra. Tania Medina Verified

The top plastic surgeon in Santo Domingo, Dr. Tania Medina, has been inclined toward the pursuit of beauty, skin care and the improvement and enhancement of the female form since she began participating in various beauty pageants.

I must say that overall, it was a great experience. Loving the results, and I am not even fully recovered yet. Can not WAIT for a full recovery. To ease some future concerns. I traveled by myself. As the Dr. says be comfortable knowing that you are in good hands. She has her team ready to care for you from the moment you step a foot into the country. I would without a doubt recommend her.

Elaen's public relations personnel, Lori Payne, answered all my questions and concerns, arrange all my appointments as well as follow up very quickly to accommodate my schedule. Dr. Alejandro was very professional, extremely knowledgable and very personable. My results for the arm lift perfectly matched my vision. I received stellar service throughout the entire process, including hospital staff, and the entire process took minimal amount of time. I strongly recommend Elaen, Dr. Alejandro and the location of my hospital stay to anyone considering surgery

Superb! Dr. Alejandro, Lori the coordinator, nurses and the entire staff were outstanding. They answered all questions professionally, clearly, patiently and promptly about the surgery and post-op expectations. They offered the latest approved surgical techniques. The follow-up care was excellent. Dr. Alejandro's credentials are sterling. The hospital is state-of-the art in Zapópan near Guadalajara. It can hold its own with the finest in any country. It is also aesthetically pleasing. Patient care is superb. I researched carefully, as you should, where to have my plastic surgery performed. Elaen was an excellent choice all round. Do not fear coming to Elaen in Guadalajara in any way. The city and the colonial gem, Tlaquepaque, nearby are safe, beautiful, filled with cultural activities and fine cuisine. The Mexican people are universally kind and cordial. I recommend that you stay fairly near to the hospital in any number of delightful places in Mexico should there be any minor glitches. Combining your healing process with a pleasant vacation will take your mind off things. Lori is a goldmine of information on what you might enjoy. Am I glad I chose Elaen to get rid of my "turkey wattle?" Absolutely. The results look terrific.

I had a great experience.. the hospital was clean and the staff very helpful ..I find that the hospital staff didn't know much English but once I woke up Dr. Alejandro Enriquez and his staff were there to greet me. I had a friend help me and a nurse that also was coming to help once a day for an extra cost of 60$cn. I got my tubes cut the day before my departure and I'm not home and healed but I am happy with the results.. I will be back to this clinic again !! Ty I should have done this years ago!

This experience far exceeded my expectations. I had my initial consult on February 23, more out of curiosity than anything, thinking if all went well I could have my surgery the following year when I returned to Mexico. From the moment I walked into the San Javier Hospital I was impressed by the clean, state of the art building design and staff. I saw Dr Alejandro in his clinic on the third floor and he answered all my questions and left it with me to contact his office if I wished to proceed with the surgery. To my surprise the office advised they could do the surgery as early as March 9, when I arrived I was greeted by a team of highly qualified staff, all of whom were friendly and spoke English and made me feel completely comfortable and at ease. I was monitored closely postoperatively and released within five hours of entering the hospital. The recovery has gone well and I saw Dr Alejandro at one week and again at two weeks prior to my return home to Canada. He will continue to follow me via video conference and photos after my return for a period of six months or longer as necessary. I would not hesitate to recommend Elaen Clinic and Dr Alejandro and would not hesitate to return for other procedures.

My Medical Vacations Plastic Surgery Verified

My Medical Vacations Plastic Surgery is a leading plastic surgery provider in Mexico that aims to offer the highest standards of aesthetic treatments and medical tourism service in North America.

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

The whole experience from you (yes you were great as well Betty..!!) and My Medical Vacations was very good! Everything was taken care of from being picked-up in a nice van, to getting me around to all my appointments. The hotel Ambiance was very good with the room being very modern and the hotel restaurant having good food at great prices. As I stated earlier Dr. Valdez was wonderful and we got along very well. He explained procedures perfectly and gave me the personal touch of coming to my hotel room to check on me – awesome!! You won’t see that in the United States medical system!! Thank you Dr. Valdez for that!! Ana was great as well and checked on me either in person or during the day with a text to see if I needed any thing – can not ask more of her. The entire experience was great! I would recommend MY Medical Vacations to anyone looking for plastic surgery. Thanks to all!! Rick Adrian

Plastic Surgery Institute of Panama Verified

The Plastic Surgery Institute of Panama aims to provide the sophisticated technology and solutions to their patients, and are committed to providing all the options and medical information available.

Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

"As a couple, my husband and I decided to have facial enhancement surgery. Several years ago, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Picard-Ami, trusting him with this made sense. Our challenges leaving the USA for this major event made us anxious because we speak limited Spanish and have hearing impairment issues. Dr. Picard-Ami and his associates clearly understood these issues and took great care to walk us through each part of the process. We followed all recommended after care treatments and instructions and are currently moving though the healing process nicely and are thrilled with the results. Dr. Picard-Ami is truly an accomplished surgeon and outstanding man. We, absolutely, selected the right surgeon for this life chaining event"

What is Cheek Implants (Malar Augmentation)?

Cheek implants (malar augmentation) are used to soften the angles of the face for a more youthful appearance. The methods employed with cheek implant procedures improve the harsh or gaunt appearance some individuals acquire due to age, malar deficiencies, asymmetries, or a natural bony structure.

 

Since we cannot avoid the force of gravity or the descent of soft tissue in our face, which is especially exacerbated with age, malar augmentation has become a sensible and rewarding solution. Cheek implants, or malar implants create well-proportioned, prominent cheek bones that make the skin on the face look supple and enhances facial symmetry.

 

A Good Candidate for Cheek Implants (Malar Augmentation)

Anyone with malar deficiencies or asymmetries caused by trauma, congenital defects, inherited bony structure or age is a good candidate for cheek implant surgery. The minimum age requirement is 18 years of age for this procedure. Typically, individuals do not get rid of their baby fat until they are in their early twenties so the age requirement does not pose an issue.

 

The age factor should be taken into consideration, as it is sometimes better to go through with a cheek augmentation operation after the face has fully matured. Anyone having a face lift may also consider cheek implants for the most flattering results.

 

Cheek Implants (Malar Augmentation) Procedure

The first step in the cheek implant procedure, as with any plastic surgery procedure, is a detailed consultation with your surgeon, who will guide you in your pre-operative planning. There are several sizes and shapes of cheek implants to choose from.

 

X-Rays are sometimes required to determine which cheek implant will be the most suitable for your bone structure, appearance, and desired goal. Measurements will also be taken to determine the degree of augmentation and the size and shape of the implant. These factors may differ for each individual.

 

Gender is also taken into consideration, as women usually desire softer, rounder cheeks enhancing their feminine appearance, while men typically desire more chiseled or angular cheek bones creating a more masculine appearance. During the cheek augmentation procedure, the patient will be under general anesthesia.

 

A small incision is made near the area where the implants will be placed, usually in the crease under the lower eyelashes or inside the upper lip. The surgeon creates a pocket to locate the implant, which is stitched to an area of more solid tissue to ensure immobility.

 

This procedure is outpatient, which means that the patient can return home the same day.

 

Average Duration of Cheek Implant Surgery: Less than 1 hour
