Butt implants..US or abroad?

Butt implants..US or abroad?

Postby MsMaddHatta » Fri Mar 03, 2006 8:37 am

Hello all. I am brand spankin new to this. I came across this site completely by accident. I am totally amazed at what I've read on here. I did not even know that butt implants existed until I saw a procedure done on Dr. 90210. I knew about the Brazilian Butt, but not the implants.

I am African-American have a tiny butt. It's not flat, just small and would like it to be bigger and rounder. I am quite curious as to why some ladies chose to leave the country? Are the doctors abroad more advanced when it comes to this procedure? Is it cheaper? What? Someone please help, cause I'd love to do this ASAP.

Thanks,
MsMaddHatta

Hi! I am looking into getting a butt augmentation too and I've came across a site that I think looks pretty good. It's www.internationalsurgery.com. I'm not sure where Venezuela is at cause I'm in USA. I've heard that the cohesives are much better than the hard silicones used in the US.

Hey deesunshine.

I, along with 3 other ladies are scheduled to have the butt implant procedure done by Dr Rosas is a couple weeks also. If you plan to see Dr Rosas and do not have a travel buddy, one of us will be happy to check in and see how things are going with you while you're there. I know it can be pretty scary having the surgery to begin with. But having the surgery outside the country can be even scarier if you have no one from your country to communicate with. So if you like, we can exchange info and support each other throughout this journey.

Thanks,

Does anyone know who is the manufacturer of the silicone implants that the doctor(Dr. Rosas) you all are mentioning is using. The scary thought that got me is that dr's abroad can implant you with anything. How do you all know for sure Dr. Rosas implants are the good cohesive ones? It seems that Dr. Rosas is a great Dr. but I'd like to know more. Thanks

Hey QueenBeex209.
The scary thought is that any doctor abroad or within the US is capable of implanting you with anything. I doubt if one would have little or any control during the surgery to stop them if that were the case. However, in doing my research I come to find that Dr Manuel Rosas, who has established himself to be an expert in butt augmentation with nearly 10 yrs of experience performing the procedure and who has many satisfied clients within the US, Italy, Mexico and abroad. Dr Manuel Rosas is who I have done my research on and therefore, I can not speak for the others. Inamed is the brand of implant I am leaning more towards, but my final decision will be made during my consult with Dr Rosas upon having a chance to actually see and feel the texture of the different brands. The implants will also come with a code that is imprinted on them which is proof of authenticity by the manufacturer in case the implants are needed to be replaced for any reason. I hope this information helps. If you would like more information, please feel free to contact Dr Rosas' nurse Julie. She is great and will answer all questions. Her e-mail address is mariposasurgery@aol.com.

Again, I hope this helps.

Hello again deesunshine.
I have a few questions if you don't mind. Do Dr Fuentes and Dr Rosas work together as a team or are they with two separate practices? If not, is there a big difference in their prices for the butt implants and do you or anyone have photos of recent patients before and after? I put in some vacation time for June, but if the price is right, I may have to take it a lot sooner than June. Please get back.
Thanks,
MsMaddHatta

Hello Msmaddhatta,
Dr. Rosas and Dr. Fuentes are two different surgeons and to my knowledge have no affiliation.

Though they both do BOTH procedures, fat grafting to buttocks and implants, Dr. Fuentes is better known for his fat grafting to buttocks and Dr. Rosas is known for his butt implants.

Price will depend on the size of the implants. Anything from 500 cc's up to 550 cc's will run approximately $4,300.000 to $4,600.00. Dr. Rosas considers anything over a 600 cc butt implant size to be custome made. It has to be ordered in advance and a deposit of $500.00 is required. I believe Dr. Rosas adds this on to the original fee.

I am not sure what Dr. Fuentes charges but I'm sure someone on this board could advise you. Ultimately, I think it will probably run you at least $3,500.00 because it will require at least two sessions for the fat grafting to buttocks procedure.
Some patients seem to lose a substantial amount while wothers (like jade23) seem to really hold on to theirs.

Hope this helps you to get started.

Thanks Sulu.
I guess I really need to do some research, because I'm not sure if implants or fat grafting would work best for me. If I may ask, which did you have done? And do you happen to know someone who have before and after pics form these two doctors? Do the doctors have websites? I wish I had known about this a long time ago.
Thanks a lot Sulu,

Re: Websites....

Heh MsMaddHatta,

You wrote:

"I guess I really need to do some research, because I'm not sure if implants or fat grafting would work best for me. If I may ask, which did you have done?"

I had fat grafting to buttocks with Dr. Cardenas in Guadalajara, Mexico on Jan.19th, 2006. Though I have a little more than I started with, I am not entirely pleased because I feel that he was w-a-a-a-y too conservative. I really could have used a lot more fat back there since I had more than enough body fat to "fill her up"!

You also wrote:
"And do you happen to know someone who have before and after pics form these two doctors?"

I hope I'm not overstepping here but if you log onto the plastic surgery journey website, then click over to the "Gallery" section, you can see a few photo examples of both Doctors' work on a few members there. Both TaraD ( Rosas for butt implants) and jade23 (Fuentes for fat grafting) had procedures done by them.
I think they are both exceptionally talented surgeons.


Also:

"Do the doctors have websites?"
They are both located in Tijuana, Mexico.

Dr. Fuentes has two websites:

www.fuentesmd.com and www.cosmedclinic.com

Dr. Rosas shares a website with a Dr. Salas at http://www.drjsalas.com/eng/index.html.

The website for the clinic he does his surgery is: www.clinicadecirugiacosmetica.com



Lastly you wrote:

"I wish I had known about this a long time ago."

It's not too late. It's still spring so if you want to book soon, I wouldn't think that would be a problem.



Good luck to you.

Little Mixup!

Postby Nezz » Thu Mar 09, 2006 7:54 am

Sulu - You did not overstep any bounds by referring MsHadd to my pictures but I just wanted to clarify that I am Tara and not TaraD. TaraD was a past member who bashed anyone who went outside the US to get buttocks implants. I, on the other hand, wanted to go outside the US for a number of reasons and am very happy with my decision. I just didn't want any confusion if someone did a search for TaraD. Thanks! :)

Nezz,
S-o-o-o sorry, Darlin'.
My "bad" as the kids say.
I do indeed remember the other TaraD.....very well.

How's the "Booty Beautiful" holding up? I read that you are planning a second trip for more.
I wished DR. "C" had been able to give me one like it.
I am s-o-o-o disappoinbted that he didn't make mine BIGGER... ROUNDER though I must admit, it does look better now.... especially in clothes.

I wasn't expecting one of those "videos butts" (too old) just something that would make my "body conscious" clothes hang a little better.

Know what I mean?

Sulu - Honestly, no problem about the mixup. No, I don't plan to go back to Dr. Rosas because I had implants and I am good for atleast a while. I think Jade is planning to go back to TJ to get more fat injections. I completely understand what you mean about clothes fitting better. I didn't even have to buy a new wardrobe, I just fill my clothes out now. Good luck to you!
