If any of you are hesitant to go out of the country for medical procedures, you owe it to yourself to see Michael Moore's movie, SICKO, which is an enlightening look at healthcare in so-called "third-world" countries. It puts our broken US healthcare system to shame.
Seeking a large-volume permanent filler (PMMA) out of the country was not a casual undertaking for me. As a healthcare professional and researcher, I had a cautious and careful approach to seeking a procedure that has a limited track record other than in the HIV community. Happily, after months of research, reading medical journals, and talking with other physicians and patients, I settled on Dra. Morales at Clinic'estetica in Tijuana, MX.
I have now had three rounds of PMMA for buttock augmentation, a "face refresh" (filler placed anywhere needed in the face including lips), hand augmentation, and even to add some tissue to my bony elbows. The results are soft, beautiful and natural and my face looks ten years younger. I am absolutely delighted!
Dra. Morales is skilled, caring, and has a terrific artistic eye for this work. It is something akin to being a talented sculptor....shaping and molding, little-by-little.
She is skilled at placing the filler to stimulate the body's production of its own soft, natural tissue.....whether the deficit is due to aging, illness, trauma, surgery, or birth defects.
Although a permanent filler may not be the answer for everyone, for me it was a God-send. Please do your research carefully and consider all the facts before making a decision. I'm happy to report that I am a delighted patient and an enthusiastic proponent of Clinic'estetica and Dra. Morales!
