Tummy tuck and arm lift in Mexico

Treatment: Tummy tuck
Provider: My Medical Vacations
Date: Jan 2014

My experience with my medical vacations(MMV) and Dr. Carmona was outstanding on every level! I called MMV on a Saturday and was lucky enough to reach Mitchell. He was wonderful! He was courteous, polite and best of all honest! He answered all of my questions and was upfront about everything regarding expenses and expectations of the procedures I was looking in to. His in depth knowledge about each procedure really impressed me. We discussed the surgery, the recovery, when I could fly again, etc… and he was able to answer all of my questions. I also contacted other medical destinations but I did not receive the same attention to detail or knowledge from the representative.

Customer Service:
The attention to customer service from MMV is phenomenal! Mitchell and Andres took care of everything!! They not only picked me up from the airport, but they also made and drove me to all of my appointments including the lab, the cardiologist, and the consult with Dr. Carmona. These two wonderful men met me at my hotel the morning of my surgery and brought me to the hospital. They brought me back to my hotel room after the surgery and their wonderful nurse Lupe took care of me. Over the next few days Andres and Mitchell stopped by and called to see how I was doing. Knowing they were looking out for me was very reassuring and I am convinced it was helpful in my healing.

Dr. Carmona
Phenomenal!! Dr. Carmona was wonderful to work with! He is a master at what he does! During my consult Dr. Carmona advised me about the procedure and gave me his recommendations. He is very professional and far exceeded my expectations! Dr. Carmona’s confidence in his abilities made the entire procedure stress free. He asked me if I was nervous and I replied “no” simply because he was so sure of his work. I am six weeks post op and I have to say I am so happy with my results! For the first time in ages I now have a waist!! For years I had a straight up and down figure but now I actually have a flat stomach and a curvy waist! The day before the surgery I was wearing a size 10 in woman’s pants. As I type this today, I am wearing a size 4 jeans! I am also really pleased with my arms! Before the surgery they were thick and regardless of what size shirt I wore my sleeves were always tight. Dr. Carmona was able to sculpt my arms, not interfering with my muscle, and shape them to look long and smooth. I no longer wear a size large shirt or hide in a baggy sweater! I wear a size small top now!

I cannot say enough good things about the staff at MMV, or Dr. Carmona! I give them my highest rating and recommendation.
