This is an “unsolicited” letter of recommendation for Dr. Eduardo Gongora Alejandre. As a patient of Dr. Gongora, I have the greatest admiration for his surgical skills, his after surgery care as well as his choice of staff that he has established at Clinica Genesis. On June 29, 2010 Dr Gongora performed adominoplasty (belly tuck) on me. After the birth of my third child I was unable to lose the weight I had gained over the years despite vigorous exercise or dieting.
Not having been in Mexico ever before in my life, I had some apprehension of seeing a plastic surgeon in Mexico, but to my pleasant surprise Dr Gongora treated me with respect and compassion during our initial interview and set my mind at ease about “Mexican medical care and the requirements and restrictions” that are in place. After he examined me, he fully explained to me what he was capable of doing and what my expectations should be and how much the “BODY SCULPTURE” would cost, which was a fraction of the cost in the USA. His staff arranged for a medical exam prior to surgery to make sure that my body was capable of withstanding major surgery as well as a physological exam to ascertain that my mind was in the right place.
The surgery lasted almost 5 ½ hours and after my overnight stay at Clinica Genesis I recuperated at a rented condominium for a few days in Rosarito (highly recommended)
After 4 days I returned to my home in Southern California. The results of the surgery are dramatic. I was told that the total body weight removed both surgically and liposuction was 27 pounds. Although I am anxious to resume my life as before my recuperation has taken longer than I wanted, but Dr. Gongora had explained this to me from the very beginning. I am delighted with the results; I am indebted to his staff especially Erik who was there any time I had a silly question as well as Sarah, who guided me through my recovery in a kind and gentle way, and I am unequivocally recommending Dr. Gongora to any men or woman who is contemplating a life altering procedure.
As this letter is totally unsolicited Dr. Gongora is free to use it in any way he sees fit, or keep it in his files under the header SATISFIED PATIENTS.
