Here is the link for the clinic in Tijuana: http://www.clinicestetica.com/default.asp  They were great to work with and can provide info on transportation and get you all set up.  I went in May and am still happy with the results.  If you have questions for me, I would be happy to assist.

I had PMMA injections in my face.  Tijuana is directly across the border from San Diego.  You can get the treatment done in about 2 - 3 hours...maybe less depending on what you want done and how much.  The clinic can arrange for transportation from the San Diego Airport directly to the clinic or a nearby hotel they recommend in Tijuana.  I went in the night before and stayed at the hotel they recommended and walked to the Clinic the next morning...not far and easy to find. The clinic arranged for transportation from the clinic back to the San Diego Airport and I returned to Dallas the same day as my procedure.  The roundtrip transportation is $50 and it well worth it to me.  You can do it all in one day.  The day I was there, a guy flew in from Idaho that morning went straight to the clinic, had his procedure done and then flew back home all in the same day.

So I have contacted this clinic and what can I say , looks like I'll go for it... They say they can restore most of it. I can not even allow myself imagine it so I will not get disappointed...is that mean I will get my life back? I feel like I "left" myself 15 years ago when the lipo started and didn't retunr to "myself" for 15 years... I missed me, I really did... I want my life back !! Can u please say what were you suffereing from with the lipo and what they have restored for you?

I had filler done for my face.  It was very sunken in...very hollow look.  You could see the outline of my skull.  I had injections in my temples, my cheeks and along my jawline.  Looks much better now.

Well ; I already did my face ' few month ago in Israel where I leave... but my leggs and buttocks are in horrible situation and according to Anna its fixable so.. I wanted to know if anyone did it , specialy for leggs cause its a wide area and I wonder how it will be looked like , by the way, I asked few dr. what if after filling my butt I will need some day injection in that area, they said there will be no problem so for me its a green light to proceed,
I sent here photos and she returned with a list of costs, what I didn;t understand , for example , she wrote buttocks usd2000 per treatment" so I dont understand what does it mean per treatment... I mean usd2000 is high enough as it is, so what is the meanning of per treatment? do u have any idea?

Panda,

I think that most people require more than one treatment if you want your buttocks to look something like it did before the lipo.  One treatment will certainly help, though, and it will likely make sitting on hard surfaces much more comfortable.  It might be less satisfactory from a cosmetic or aesthetic perspective, however.

I understand that these treatments are considerably less expensive at Dr. Serra's clinic in Rio de Janeiro, but obviously the travel cost is still substantial from a place like Israel.

I wish you the best of luck.

Panda, there is a limit to how much they will inject in your butt per session. They will inject enough to make a difference during the first session but it takes a couple of months for the full benefit of precise to show. Therefore a 2nd treatment would be in order if your wasting is severe. They will inject only a certain amount of cc's in each cheek per session for your comfort and safety. Then you can't sit on your butt for 24 hrs. They need to do a check-up visual the following morning which is why they require you to stay overnight in a local hotel.

usd 2000 is a good bargin. It was much more expensive than that only 3 years ago.

xxx,
Mike

Hi there ,

I returned fom Mexico Tijuana few days ago , I was too tired to write but here I am ,
Well first of all , if you remember I was so scared about the medication if they'll catch me, well it went just all right ! and I just crossed the border to usa with no questions at all....
Now - I don't knw where even to begin ,
Anna , She is one of the most amazing pepole I have ever met , she has a huge heart and good willing to help , the team is THE MOST professional you can ever expect , they knowladge regardng hiv and lipo is huge , they know everything , the knew imm. what i have injected to my face.
The procedure , well for me at list was a bit painfull since I had so many places i was suppose to fix .. I had it in the butt, hips , leggs and a bit on the face as well. I was all swallen but it was worth it ,
the results are amazing and beyond my expectations... still , u need to remember this is only 1 treatment , normaly it requires 2 so maybe in a year or 2 i will go back to complete it but I am so happy with the results , I still don't have the photos , once I'll have I will put here ,
When I went back to the office everybody told me how great I look like and that looks like I have finaly gained some weight , ofcourse they could not imagine what i went through !!
I recomand it with all my heart !! ITS DEFINITELY WORTH THE EFFORT!!!
