Dr. Cavalcanti and his staff are very professional and offer a high level of care. Although there is a language barrier with some of the staff I was always able to communicate my needs to them. The doctor and his manager son are very fluent in English and several other languages. They are kind and caring and at times humorous! The doctor is an artist and sculpted my lower body with a butt lift, tummy tuck and lipo. That was all done as one procedure and took 7 hours. I was kept at the clinic for over 24 hours with one on one nursing the whole time. I was never left alone. My care was excellent and when I went back to my hotel I knew the clinic was 1/2 block away and the doctor available 24/7 by phone. The accomodations are excellent and there are 6-10 American's there most of the time either for PS or weight loss surgery. I have had no complications or problems and am healing right on schedule. The doctor maintains contact by email. Seven days after my first surgery, Dr. C. did my lower face lift and upper and lower eyelids. I had very little bruising and only a couple of days of bad swelling. At 5 weeks PO I still have some swelling and numbness but know that is a common side effect for some months. My sister had 2 surgeries also - TT, Lipo, and butt lift and a week later a breast lift with implants. We would not have been able to afford these surgeries in the U.S. The only downside to the experience is the fact that you are far from home and although in a foreign country not able to enjoy it. When you are not feeling well having familiar food and your bed around is comforting. We are both thrilled with the results of our surgery and would do it again in a minute. My sister plans a return trip in a year for a face lift!
