MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I decided in February of 2012 that enough was enough. I had weight lose surgery and that was the beginning to the rest of my life. Over the last two years I have lost 130 lbs. Which you can imagine left me with a lot of unwanted loose skin. I started working out. I was walking, lifting weights, cardio but the more I worked out the more skin it seemed I had. I begin thinking maybe reconstructive surgery was my answer. So the search began….
I looked in state first, then expanded and started looking online and in other states. One of the first things I noticed was how hard it was to actually talk to a Doctor First you had to call and make an appointment to talk with someone then when they would call you back you were talking to an assistant, and then they would make you an appointment to talk with the actual Doctor. Then whenever they called you would ask your questions and they would only have some of the answers. It was always I’ll find out and my assistant will get back to you which have the time I never heard from anyone again. It was very frustrating.
Then I was lucky enough to hear about Dr. Victor E. Gutierrez in Tijuana, Mexico.
Well right from the beginning he was different.
I emailed him to ask a few questions and HE answered me back…not an auto reply or an assistant but him himself. Needless to say I was shocked. He was polite and answered all my questions. Over the next few months as I kept searching I would find myself comparing everyone to him. One day while I was worrying about the surgery and if I was doing the right thing I decided to call Dr. Gutierrez and see if I would be able to talk to someone and ask a few question that I had. When I called I could not believe that he answered the phone and proceeded to talk with me for almost an hour answering all my questions and reassuring me that I would not be disappointed. I knew I had made the right choice and from that point on I put my trust in him.
He had me send him my pictures we discussed what I wanted and what he recommended. I of course wanted everything but his first and foremost priority is your health. He requested that I have lab work done to make sure I was healthy enough for surgery. Once that was completed he recommended the Mommy Make Over which included the Lower body lift, butt lift and breast lift. Once I chose him as my surgeon he kept in constant contact with me reassuring me and answering any questions I had, as crazy as they may seem.
My entire experience with Dr. Gutierrez was absolutely amazing!! From the minute I met him in person till I left him at the airport to head home. He was thoughtful and constantly checking on me. I could not have asked for better care. This goes for his entire staff also, I did not want for anything; they were constantly there checking to make sure I was o.k. and attending my every need. I spent a week under 24 hour care within the clinic but my care did not stop there. I have been home for two weeks now and Dr. Gutierrez calls me every couple of days to see how I’m doing. If I have any questions I know I can call or email him at any time and he will be there.
I could not have asked for a better Doctor to take of me. Dr. Gutierrez did everything that he said he was going to do. I am so happy with my results and if I ever have any other procedures done I will look no further then him to take care of me.
