If anyone is considering having plastic surgery in Costa Rica, you can scratch this surgeon out of your list and with good reasons. I had a consultation with this doctor and immediately I realized I wanted to leave the office. He is so busy he has no time to consult with you about your surgery, you tell him what you are interested and he will tell you what he will do and send you home, yes! no more questions and your opinions or questions he has no time for....you will have to just let him do what he wants and he promises to make it right. WRONG!!!!
I stayed with 4 other ladies which 3 of them had surgery with him and I felt so bad for them. They all looked horrible and a week after surgery they were still in pain, could not sleep and kept complaining. They were so dissapointed and sad they did not know much about him until after surgery. We stayed 3 weeks in the same place and one of them got so sick she had to be transfered to another hospital to recover. If you are picking a surgeon, make sure he is not so well known or too busy for you and if you notice him constantly looking at his watch and acting like he needs to go then you just leave and do NOT do anything with them because there is a good chance the surgery may not be good. These ladies regreted what they did. They have to come back for more procedures but they are not going back to Dr. Da Cruz Dos Santos, they are going to a clinic called; Clinica Unibe where Dr. Christian Rivera Paniagua an EXCELLENT surgeon will fix them up! you can read about Dr. Christian Rivera Paniagua from the arrivacostarica.com website, he uses the LATEST MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY and he will take the necessary time with you upon consultation and answer any of your questions gracefully, you will come out feeling not only good about your decision but knowledgeable about the science of any of the procedures you are interested in. Dr. Rivera actually did my surgery in which I will explain in a positive message board here so you'll get an idea of how wonderful he is.If you have any questions that I can answer, feel free to email me at mrodz1@msn.com
