Good for you!!! HOw did you find this doc? If I may ask approx. what does he charge? Just tell me if it's none of my business. I hope to get some "work" done when I get to goal so I am starting now to do my homework.
Thanks and I'm sure someone here will fill you in about him.

Hi Julie
cosmed is across the road from The OCC and the Dr pals with Dr Ortiz.
I'm having a consult for work, when I go down in August for my Hubbies banding.

Did you have a consult there first or did they just have you send pictures? They told me just

to send in some pictures and they could quote me that way. I already had a tummytuck in canada,

and never even got a follow up call! so I like the idea of staying 4 days and being pampered. I would

like to get smaller implants. (I have More than I bargained for :blink: ) Thanks

Hey Gang!

I too, will be having some work done by Dr Quiroz on the 20th of August. He was recommended by the OCC and they have very good reputation with most people I talked to (all Dr Ortiz patients) I'm not at my goal weight yet, but I'm one of those people whose body is very uneven. It looks like all the weight I've lost so far is from my upper body! Even my breast are smaller and I wear a size M top, in contrast to a 16W pants. After seeing my pictures, he recommended a liposuction on both thighs ans hips and a small breast implant (a full B will do) to even my body. I'll be staying at la Casa De Lilas, and, If all goes well, will be home by Saturday, for a total of 3 nights.

PS: you could check Carolynn's (patient care coordinator for Dr Ortiz') pics on the COSMED website. She had a total weight loss of 103lbs and he transformed her into a... hot cake at the tender age of 62 (go to www.cosmedtj.com, and click on plastic surgery after weight loss to see her)
I'll keep you posted!

Is there anything they dont do in Mexico, I feel like a little kid. I had no idea all this stuff happens over there. This is all new to me. It is exciting and interesting cause people freak out when you tell them you are going to Mexico to get something done. I find it very exciting that there is an option. I always thought if you couldnt afford it here, you were out of luck. This site has really opened my eyes to a whole new world.

You can't go wrong with your choice of Plastic Surgeons by going with Dr. Quiroz and the Cosmed clinic. He has one of the best reputations in TJ and Southern California. When you call the Cosmed clinic you'll most likely talk first with his public relations manager named Joyce Palau. She's a sweet heart and will be very reassuring during your plastic surgery journey. Here's a picture of Dr. Quiroz's office manager Jezel and his pubic relations manager Joyce

Hey Dave
Is the clinic really close to the OCC or do I need to cab it?
I have a consultation on Friday after my hubbie has his lapband.
