you see that you were overweight woman. and even operated one sees that the doctor could not remove all fat is impossible .. that you had seen better results in a surgery you have to dropped more weight, or you expect that even having much fat, your body would translate in a barbie? let's be honest !.. the doctor dont make miracles or a wizard to transform a fat on a barbie, please!!!

I went to Mexico to have plastic surgery and had amazing results. I actually plan on going back and some of my clients are going to see him after seeing my tummy and face for themselves. The dr I had take my stitches out up here in Wa State said he did a great job. She told me that doctors in Mexico train 3 more years than our drs here and are highly qualified.
I think some people just do not heal as easily as others. I had a client here in the states go through this same thing after breast cancer and it started with an infection.
Best wishes to everyone. :)

Hi everyone, I just want to say that I'm deeply sorry for the outcome of your surgery. Also, a year ago one of my cousins had a surgery with Dr. gongora. She almost die. Thank god, after 6 months battling an infection that led to neumonia (as a consequence of being in a hospital bed for 4 months) and after being left open (because the doctors couldn't close her up until the infection was controlled) and after multiple surgeries and scars (because they had to remove skin from her legs and transplant it to her tummy... she is safe.. and still wondering why the heck that doctor was not held responsable for all the damages...

I do not agree with his comments, there exist persons who devote themselves to defame and it not this one well, I am a patient of the DR. Gongora of being size 9 it happens to be a size 5 with magnificent results, with a minimal scar,and if I needed another surgery I would gladly let him operate me over again , serious suitable to reflect and to think since you were before your operation, and this way to be able to compare your before and your after,

For the way I see you are expressing yourself it seems to me that you are a very ignorant person because your arguments are not based on scientific facts and with that said you are difaming the honor of a true professional, and as a professional that I also am, I can assure you that here in Mexico we have perfectly prepared proffesionists and we surely aren't the ignorants that you make think we are, and because of that ignorance that you have, you are blinded to see that the one person that can be spending quality time behind bars it's you, because here in Mexico there are laws to protect citizens and professionals from abusive people like yourself. Because this kind of display not only stains the honor of a very prestigious and highly qualified Doctor, it also discredicts the Mexican Medycal System that I am proudly part of, and that I cannot allow. So to all of you that are commenting about the "decadent services" provided here in Mexico I invite you to come so we can prove you all wrong.

four years ago i was doctor GONGORA patient, and results were very satisfactory for me, and some friends that were also patients there are very comfortable with the results.

Like applebottombrat says, do you have pictures prior to your surgery??because from what I see (with no disrespect that is)you are a person with overweigh issues so what common sense says to me is that patients like that need more than one operation to get to optimal results. Also recovery depends on the age and type of cicatrization of the patient as far as I know.

I feel very bad for you, but i must agree with Mayrsol, i also had a rhynoplasty performed by Dr. Eduardo Gongora and I am thrilled with the results. He is an incredible Dr. and mostly he is very professional at what he does, and if I needed another surgery I would gladly let him operate me over again :)
mayrsolFrom: mayrsol | 2010-10-22 09:37:25

I really feel so bad for you, but each body, each skin has a different reaction and response to a surgery, I had a plastic surgery
made by dr. eduardo gongora it was a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast uplift job and the results were spectacular, my scars are not visible, my postoperative recovery was excellent.I have many friends who had plastic surgery with Dr. Edward gongora and the results of all been like mine. EXCELLENT AND SPECTACULAR

I am asking the same question as rrlklein. Why in the heck did you go to Mexico to have your surgery ? If it was to get a "good deal", the money you saved was not worth it. The doctors down there are not held to the same standards as doctors in the US. Our doctors are more expensive because they pay a great deal of money for extensive training, board certification and malpractice insurance. Procedures here are more expensive, but you have the piece of mind knowing that you will have the best care available. Ladies, these are our bodies, the only ones we will ever have and we have to be so very careful about what we expose ourselves to. If you want a discount, save it for your clothes and shoes, don't gamble with your body. I wish you luck and will keep you in my prayers.

I'm so sorry this must be devestating for you, honestly from the looks of things you are lucky to be alive because it doesn't look like your surgean new what he was doing. I would go see a different one in your area RIGHT AWAY because who knows what damage this person did to you. Everytime I see someone on makemeheal that is going to Mexico I worry about how it will turn out for them because they are not regulated like surgery is in the United States. You can still have bad docs here but I don't think anyone should ever go to another country for surgery especially it its to save money. I do hope you will be able to get your procedures corrected. God bless!

Wow, i am so very sorry. I also live in Washington State and just had a breast reduction and lift. If you want a great Dr. Email me and I will give you the info. She will help you get ouf this mess. I am sorry for your misfortune. But it happens specially when you head to mexico.
LorriekayFrom: Lorriekay | 2009-09-18 11:11:37

I'm sorry this happened to you.
Although it can happen it U.S. as well. My mom had TT and breast reduction at same time from a respected doc. She had these huge wide stitches and scars. everything was all puckered (the skin) left much larger than she asked.. uggh
she tried to sue but no doctor would go testify against him.
i mean there has to be an *expert* to go against the doctor.
It does look like it can all be fixed but I know that is on no comfort right now :(
Thank your lucky stars he didn't do the arms like he was supposed to . what a moron.
rrlkleinFrom: rrlklein | 2009-09-12 19:46:21

i noticed you had your surgery done in MEXICO...although you live in the Washington state. Why did you go to Mexico to have it done? just curious.
AnjailFrom: Anjail | 2009-09-09 05:44:56

I really feel so bad for you. Did you see any of his work before you decided to use him. He needs to be butchered the same way he did you. I'm not sure where you live but here in Michigan my surgeon is a reconstructive surgeon and she will be able to fix his mess up. Her name is Dr. Laurn Bryan located in Huntington Woods, MI.
