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

After completing her Fellowship with one of Mexico's world renowned surgeons, Dr. Isabel Balza Mirabal, opened her private practice BM Plastic Surgery, where she continues to provide deeply rewarding work of improving others’ lives.

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

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) Overview

The nose is a central component of the face. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, you may want to change the size, shape or symmetry by means of nose surgery or rhinoplasty.


Some individuals need to have nose surgery for medical reasons or a defect. Nose surgery can also be used for reconstructive purposes to reshape the nose resulting from facial disfigurement.


Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures available to men and women today. People who feel embarrassed about the way their nose looks can get the profile they have always wanted just by undergoing this relatively direct procedure. The most common type of rhinoplasty is when patients desire the raised bump on the bridge of their nose to be removed.


It can greatly increase their confidence if they have been embarrassed by their nose for years. Of course, there are a number of nose surgery risks and side effects that patients need to be aware but many of these can be avoided by added care before, during and after surgery.


Some nose surgery procedures are quite dramatic while others are very minor. Some individuals reduce the size of their nose while others concentrate on a particular area. Each nose surgery is very individual and ultimately carried out to give the patient their desired outcome.


The smallest changes can give the face a significantly different look. If a person is not happy with their results, they can undergo nose surgery revision.


The cost of nose surgery can be very expensive in the United States and United Kingdom which is why many people travel abroad for treatment. They can combine rhinoplasty with an amazing holiday and save a significant portion of money.


The cost of nose surgery in most medical tourism hubs is remarkably less than plastic surgery treatments in the US and Western Europe. Notably, countries like Dominican Republic, Mexico and Cyprus are the most renowned destinations for low-cost nose surgery and other cosmetic treatments abroad.


The UAE is where a bag of sand was transformed into a city of skyscrapers and glitzy designer boutiques. Besides the oil reserves the UAE depends on for the country's gross revenue, plastic surgery in Dubai also contributes to their larger-than-life economy.


Nose surgery in Dubai draws interest from the growing expatriate community, especially Lebanese women in the UAE and bordering Gulf countries.


A Good Candidate for Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Do you feel self-conscious about your nose? Do you think it is too big or has an awkward shape?
Perhaps, your nose is not as symmetrical as you would like it to be.


If you have answered yes to any of these questions then you may be a good candidate for nose surgery. Rhinoplasty is a relatively undeviating cosmetic procedure where the surgeon modifies a patient’s nose to achieve the desired look.


Open nose surgery is a more complicated and takes longer to recover from. Nose surgery is a great solution for someone who wants to change the size, shape or symmetry of their nose.


To be a good candidate for nose surgery, you need to be healthy and a well-balanced individual. You also need to understand and accept the nose surgery risks and side effects. Although this procedure is fairly safe, various complications can arise and you should be aware of them.


It is important that you know what is involved and can openly communicate with the surgeon about any questions or concerns you may have.


To determine if you are a good candidate the surgeon will discourse with you the reasons you are interested in treatment. He will also analyze your bone structure and surrounding cartilage. Most individuals are suitable for treatment and have reasonable expectations of their rhinoplasty outcome.


Those who end up requiring nose surgery revision are typically individuals who did not have very realistic expectations.


Both young and older individuals can be good candidates for rhinoplasty. Of course, a patient needs to be at least 18 years of age to have any type of surgery. This age requirement ensures their nasal structure is fully developed. A large proportion of younger patients undergo nose surgery more than any other type of plastic surgery.


If you are taking certain medications that can adversely affect your nose surgery recovery, you may need to look into alternative medications or stop taking them. Smokers do not make good candidates for nose surgery because smoking slows down the healing process and sometimes leads to skin death around the incisions.


Patients with very thin upper nasal cartilage may be more difficult to operate on. Your plastic surgeon can further discourse with you if you are a good candidate or not.



Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty) Procedure

Nose surgery can be open or closed. During your nose surgery preparation, the plastic surgeon will examine your nose and discuss the desired outcome in order to decide what type of procedure is best for you. Both open and closed nose surgery procedures are common, but it is important to choose a plastic surgeon who is experienced. This will avoid nose surgery revision later.


The surgeon makes an incision below or inside the nostrils then separates the skin from the cartilage and bone. He then cuts down or reshapes the targeted area. If a patient requires extra cartilage, the surgeon can take this from other parts of the body.


Open Nose Surgery

Open rhinoplasty is a more extensive form of surgery and consequently takes longer. It also allows the surgeon to have greater access to the inside of your nose. First, the surgeon makes a small incision on the skin that separates the nostrils and inside the nose. These incisions provide a direct view of the lower one-third of the nose. With the desired outcome in mind, the bone or cartilage is reshaped before stitching up the incisions. If you require grafts; soft tissues, cartilage or other material may be placed inside the nose for additional support.


Closed Nose Surgery

Closed nose surgery or “endonasal rhinoplasty” is generally recommended to patients requiring less modification to the nose. It is similar to open nose surgery but does not involve the same exterior incision. During closed nose surgery the surgeon modifies the interior bone and cartilage through small incisions within the nostrils. This can be difficult due to less visibility than open nose surgery. Endonasal rhinoplasty is the least extensive nose surgery.


Average Duration of Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty): 1-4 hours
