After having three kids it was apparent that the pregnancies had taken a toll on my body. In spite of watching my diet and exercising on a regular basis, I just could not get back into my pre-children shape. After constant internal struggles, I finally admitted that I needed additional help. I was initially referred to Dr. Eduardo Gongora, by a friend who was ecstatic with the results she obtained from the work he performed on her (Tummy tuck & full body lipo). However, I was hesitant about having any procedures (tummy tuck & lipo) in Mexico, especially since I did not know what if any recourse was available to me. I lingered on the “what if” thoughts for far too long.
I finally decided that I would not take the chance. I scheduled my tummy tuck here in the United States with a very reputable plastic surgeon of a well known plastic surgery group (The Beverly Hills Surgical Institute). Unfortunately, although I was patient and waited for all the swelling to go away, I was just never satisfied with the results. Honestly, I did not notice any difference from before my tummy tuck and after. Furthermore, I felt that I had literally wasted my time and my money on my tummy tuck here in the U.S.
Out of desperation, I called and made an appt. with Dr. Gongora for a consultation. On the date of the consultation, Dr. Gongora answered all my questions and made me feel completely at ease. He informed me that the first surgeon had not pulled the skin tight enough during my tummy tuck, and that was probably the reason I was never happy with the results of my initial tummy tuck. Dr. Gongora recommended for me to have a minor correction to my tummy tuck. Additionally, he was going to do total body lipo-sculpture.
On the date of my surgery we again discussed my procedure. When I awoke from my surgery, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Dr. Gongora had completely redone my original tummy tuck. As was expected, I was extremely swollen. However, even with all the swelling I was already able to see improvements. Of course as time went by the swelling continued to diminish and I was more satisfied with the results. However, Dr. Gongora recommended that at six months I return for a touch up which he said would correct my tummy tuck scar. He would also perform lipo on my abdomen area.
Six months after my initial surgery with Dr. Gongora, I went back for the recommended re-touch. I can sum up the results of Dr. Gongora’s work in one word “WOW”. My recuperation went extremely smooth and the final product was that my abdomen area was completely flat. My greatest excitement was when I looked in the mirror and saw my new “small” waist. Words are not enough to express the gratitude I have towards Dr. Gongora and his staff. His staff is compiled of compassionate and caring professionals who demonstrate true dedication to their patients, and who give honor to the nursing professor.
I would strongly recommend Dr. Gongora and his staff without any hesitation to anyone who is considering a surgical procedure.
