Dr. Belman Galvin (having 2nd thoughts on Pantoja)

Dr. Belman Galvin (having 2nd thoughts on Pantoja)

Postby UpgradeMe » Mon Jun 06, 2011 8:40 pm

Has anyone here used him? I have been reading the Univision forum like crazy the last 3-4 days. Quite a few of the women there have GREAT results with this Dr. This one and Dr. Dario Juris. After reading about these two Drs I'm having second thoughts on Pantoja. Mainly because they do mega lipo so he said I do not have to lose weight. I can come right now. Secondly he does a special TT procedure where your stomach shrinks 20-50% which has a sort of gastric bypass weight loss effect. This was started for obese patients to help with Diabetes and high cholesterol and get a jump start with weight loss. He will also do my surgery in epidural stages so he would numb then work on my breasts after he would then numb tummy area to perform TT. I created an album with some before/after pics of Dr. G's patients. Tell me what you think and if you've heard of this Dr good or bad. I have emailed about 12 of his patients so far I've only heard back from 2 because many of them don't speak English. And they LOVE him. Their results are awesome! I'm waiting to hear back from them on whether I can add their pics here.

My quote is $2,000 more than Pantoja but everything is included except $40/day lodging (his patients get a discount from hotel) plus you get a cell phone and computer to use 24/7 while there, 10 post sx massages, 2 garments (stage 1 & 2), transportation, and laundering. None of those extra fees Pantoja has.

He's not in Brazil. He's in Cali, Columbia. By plane there' a direct flight and it's only 3.5 hours from Miami.

Wow he's definitely a really good sculptor! He gave them amazing shapes! I love the first set of pictures. Her waist/hip ratio is off the chain.

I looked into Columbian surgeons beause they claim they are the best in cosmetic surgery
suppopsedly that is where most of the Miss Universe and come from and there techniques in
platic surgery is way ahead of those here in the states. There is a Dr Rito Marino his website is
americanestetica.com and he actually has videos of the procedures before and after. Really like his
results and am considering him take a look and see what you think.

Nnniiiiccceeee, his work is beautiful. Thanks UpGrade.

Columbia just seems so far for the plane ride. I like the package minus that it doesn't include your hotel & food.

Explain the special tt procedure if you can, do you know what he does different?
Uuuggh! Back on hold.......Maybe next year??

I asked if there was a limit and was told no. When was your last communication with his office? I just spoke with someone yesterday. I realized a few days later my initial emails were with someone who doesn't even work in their office. Its someone trying to get referral $ :x :x

I have no clue why I feel safer going to Mexico versus Columbia bc I probably shouldnt lol but its comforting to know I have friends in San Diego only an hour away. Those prices are great though bc the massages along run about $40 which always seemed expensive in Mexico to me.

A coworker of mine got a TT & lipo last year. It was a secret. She is overweight and I couldnt tell a thing when she came back. Not that there should be a huge difference but I just think your overall shape will be more where you want it if youre near your weight goal. If you lose a lot more weight you risk more skin sagging.

Good luck to whatever you decide! :)

This was his email t me, its in Spanish. Jan 2011


El tipo de lipoescultura que se utilizaría en tu caso es la lipoescultura tumescente tradicional para la obtención del material apropiado para injerto (células vivas de tejido adiposo). La otra técnica que usamos es la Vaser pero estaría indicada en tu caso porque el ultrasonido rompe las células y las hace inviables. Te anexo fotografías de gluteoplastia con injerto de grasa.
El volumen máximo sería de 500 cc, por encima de ese valor el porcentaje de reabsorción es muy grande y se torna riesgoso. Con 500 cc

This email was sent to me jan 2011. I went to google and translate to english

The type of liposuction to be used in your case is the traditional tumescent liposuction to obtain suitable material for grafting (live cells of adipose tissue). The other technique we use is the Vaser but would be indicated in your case because the ultrasound breaks down the cells and makes them impractical. Annex I gluteoplasty photos with fat grafting.
The maximum volume of 500 cc would be above this value the rate of absorption is very large and becomes risky

There are several ps in Bogota Colombia that seem to be popular as well. One is named Dr Amaya...I wish I could remember the other Dr's name...he comes to Miami several times a year and has a great reputation....


Colombia is my second choice, behind Mexico. I have never heard that it is the best place for PS though...I have always heard Brazil and maybe Argentina. fHowever, I don't like the idea of flying over the ocean....that is why I feel safer going to Mexico. I can tell you, I no longer consider Costa Rica an option...they have gotten so expensive and so many folks coming back dissipointed. I hope more will post about Colombia.
