dr. cerpa butt implants

dr. cerpa butt implants

Postby misscruella » Mon Nov 03, 2014 2:39 pm

i am going to see dr cerpa next week and im going to get lipo and a lip lift possibly and then possibly butt implants as well. i am 130 lbs 5'3, and ive had two rounds of fg to my butt but the fat doesnt create a round appearance. i just look like i have a big saggy butt in my opinion. i want the implants, that is if they look natural. at first he reccomended 500 cc round implants then he said i might have to go with a smaller implant if i want a natural look. who doesnt want a natural look? i asked him if the implants would look real and if i would be able to see the outline of the implant and he kind of beat around the bush with the question i feel. he asked "well do you want to look how you are now with a square shaped butt?" and he told me that women who can see the outline of their implant are still happy because they have projection now. and then he said that HE thinks i will look great in his opinion. im having second thoughts of going through with this procedure and i just looked on the internet for some posts about him. he gets a lot of positive reviews but there is one review where he is responding to a girl who recently underwent butt implant surgery with him. she emailed him saying that her butt implants settled down and there was no swelling anymore and she can see the outline of the implant and didnt know what to do and he asked her questions like " well do you want to look how you did before? " and told her that with time her implants should "settle" and appear more "natural looking". and then the post ended. i really dont like when a plastic surgeon who is going to be working on my body seems to have a manipulative air about him. me and this woman wanted to know if there would be an outline and maybe im wrong, but i think most women would care if they had an outline and wouldnt get the surgery if there was an obvious outline after.

just wanted to add that he did just tell me that he would be putting the round cohesive gel implants under the muscle. he said that this would give the most natural look. when i asked if in the situation that i might decide i dont like them and want them removed if my butt will look very different than before the surgery, he responded by saying that i need to stop worrying and that if i think i will look bad after surgery i will and we create our life by our thoughts. i didnt really ask for a philosphical perspective on life from a surgeon, i just wanted to know if i decide to have these implants removed that alot of people end up not liking will i be totally screwed after and look like crap? lol

hahaha, i died reading that. you are completely right by the way, and your skepticisms are rational and something that i would be concerned about as well but just the way he responded with his philosophy and your reaction was hilarious! it is good that you are asking this stuff because yeah, its important! i actually have a consult with him tomorrow and will ask him a couple of questions about this stuff. i am thinking about having surgery with cerpa as well. i will get back to you in this thread when i talk to him. lets keep each other updated.

alright so i finally had a consult with him. for the technical details, his office was incredily small and humble but that does not bother me at all. anesthesia would be sedation with an epidural block. the size he suggested as 250-300 but he said that, during the operation its possible that this size might vary depending on the tightness of your muscle. its possible he will only be able to fit a 225 or its possible he may be able to fit a 350.

he said that the placement of the implants could produce a widening effect, like a heart. visibilitiy could be an issue if you bend over, but he did mention that when everyone bends over you can practically see the BONE so avoiding the visibility of the implant when bending over is unlikely unless you go smaller. im not sure if this is completely correct but it does make sense. he also talked about subcutaneous fat levels and how they will affect the visibility of the implant, the more fat the better it will hide it.

i asked him about the longevity of the implant and he says that there is no need to replace the implant the same way you would need to do for breast implants.

he went into good details about the placement of the implant and the vital aftercare and how you must absolutely follow his directions. overall he was a nice guy though and spent a lot of time with me, without feeling rushed. he went on a few tangents but ultimately, i felt that he knew what he was talking about.

did you go to your consult yet? lets keep each other updated

i have not seen dr. cerpa yet, but i will be asking him to give me some sort of guarantee about this surgery because i have some doubt that it will turn out looking natural. i am going to ask him to guarantee me that if i see an outline of the implant after the surgery then i ask that he remove them and refund me for the surgery. i will tell him that its not that i doubt him in his abilities but that alot of women do not like their implants after because the surgeon was not clear about how natural they would look and perhaps some miscommunication and lastly the surgery has a high complication rate depending on who is performing it. he told me that if he uses a smaller implant then what he originally suggested that it will look natural. he originally suggested 500 cc's. which i think is quite large but i already have a butt its a big butt but i feel like its a big flabby butt. ill try to upload some pics here. so what have you decided. getting the surgery or not? if so when? i am having my consult with him tomorrow tuesday the 11th and am supposed to have surgery the next day the 12th. i am nervous. we should keep each other updated and if you are having your surgery around the same time as me maybe ill see you there. i am staying at the real del rio.

hi yes i am recovering in a hotel now. its pretty painful, worse than having my under the muscle breast implants. you do so much more with your lower body. bending over, sitting, even sitting on the toilet hurts, and walking. i have a pre existing disease called lyme disease that makes my muscles hurt. sort of like fibromyalgia, so that might be why its so painful for me. i try to sleep through the pain as much as i can. and im taking around 60 mg of tramadol a day. the results look great, though dont know what final result will be it looks great now. i will someday post before and afters. as far as dr cerpa, his office is not that clean or nice looking compared to say dr fuentes, but i think he does good work which is important. not the best bedside manner though unfortunately, when i have an issue he is often dismissive. saying that he knows best because hes the doctor etc and i asked him to sign something that asked if my butt came out looking deformed or for any reason there needed to be a revision that he would fix it. and he told me that i need to trust, and thats not standard medical practice blah blah blah and we were arguing about signing a stupid form for about two hours. when i went to see dr fuentes he already has a form he has YOU sign saying that the only thing you will be responsible for if there needs to be a revision is hospital, anesthesiology fees etc. anyways i am happy with my results and will post more soon.

go YOU. 2 hours for a stupid form? jeez, did he end up signing it in the end?

dr fuentes is a great person. i have seen him before. if i wasnt going to dr cerpa because i was confident in his work, i would most definitely go to fuentes as a second choice.

so did you end up going to fuentes or cerpa?

i chose dr cerpa because of how many implants hes done compared to fuentes. also i feel like dr fuentes is a good person but i think he rushes things so patients dont always get the best results. like with my lipo i had some dimpling and parts where he lipoed too much. either he wasnt paying attention or he did it too fast.i had to go back a seond time because the first time he didnt lipo enough. and the second time he lipoed too much in some areas, not enough in others making it looking uneven. but dr fuentes is a sweetheart and has a great bedside manner like a doctor should have. dr cerpa does perform longer surgeries and one girl even complained here that she was under sedation for ten hours but he says that he takes longer because he is very careful to do the work right and he takes his time. and i think that shows in his work. just look at his pictures for butt implants.the proof is there i think. he told me that i was the best butt hes ever made. quite a compliment but i believe it because my butt looks fricken beautiful. big, round, it looks like a jennifer lopez butt and pretty much the butt of my dreams. i have a little bit of cellulite but theres nothing i can really do about that. i think he may need to lipo a little bit more( im being picky maybe half an inch) around this one spot in my waist for me to have that perfect hourglass figure but otherwise my body looks beautiful to me, im very pleased. its damn painful though. just as i thought i was getting over the hump of the pain because its been over a week since my surgery my right buttcheek is hurting so bad i can hardly walk. the dr says its because the position of the drain on a nerve or somehing and i will have to wait until the drains arent collecting fluid any more to take it out which could be days. meanwhile im drugging msyelf up with oxycodone and tramadol but its not doing shit for the pain in this buttcheek, so i cant wait for this fricken drain to come out.

hello,

i'm currently a week or 2 away confirming which doctor to go with for butt implants and fat transfer to my hips. i've got it drown to 2 surgeons: Dr cerpa and Dr Gongora. I was certain on Cerpa until i stumbled across some photos on RS of a Gongora patient with amazing results and now i'm unsure. Dr C has quoted me $1000 cheaper and will also lipo my abdomen were as Dr G will not.

i'm so confused who to choose. are you happy with your results so far? i know you're not long postop but the impatience to set a date is killing me. i've been researching years but now i've finally got the money together i feel as lost as i was at the beginning of collecting info lol

p.s hope you a quick and successful recovery x

Re: dr. cerpa butt implants

Postby misscruella » Tue Feb 03, 2015 12:36 pm

I am so sorry for the late reply. I went to see Dr. Cerpa and it was a nightmare. This will be a long story but I will start from the beginning. first off, I gave him a deposit for the surgery. When i got to his office, it was small and it looked very poor. there were even holes in the walls. you saw this, so you should know. however, i tried not to judge his surgical skill by his office. however, i thought that if a doctor is making enough money from his patients he should be able to make his office look nice. dr fuentes office, for example is very nice and he is in mexico. We started going over everything and he asked me if i was on any medications. I said yes, that i was on antibiotics for chronic lyme disease. Then he just mentioned that i forgot to mention this, he did not say that he couldnt do the surgery or that he would have to look into my disease or anything he just wrote down my medications. After the surgery when things started to go wrong is when he tried to allude to my lyme disease being the cause of things going wrong instead of taking responsibility for his surgical skills. Let me tell you that i have had other surgeries. I have had breast implants, I have had lipo, I have had fat grafting. I have never had any issues with these surgeries except for this one. I had also been told by my doctors that my lyme disease would not affect any surgery i chose to have and all that lyme disease causes is pain, like muscle pain and arthritis. So then because of the bad things that i had read about Dr. Cerpa, i asked him to sign something that said that if there was to be a correction for surgery that he would do it. It took me three hours of arguing with this doctor before he would sign this paper. I didnt even know if this paper would be helpful, because with how this doctor likes to argue he could totally have messed up my body and argued that it looked fine after.The way that this doctor argued and his attitude was unprofessional. I saw that from the beginning but I had already given him my deposit which was half of the surgery and I was afraid he wasnt going to give it back. I tried to focus on all of the good reviews that this doctor received. However, more and more people are seeing that these good reviews are dwindling down. I was even warned by a woman on here named noveleo about this doctor, but i didnt listen. I really should have listened. I asked this doctor about noveleo and one other woman i believe her name is shamika. and dr cerpa said that these women are liars and are angry. He told me that noveleo was a woman from mexico and she wanted a ridiculous sized implant for her body that he couldnt give her without putting her safety in danger. the implant would have stretched her skin so much and he wouldnt have been able to stitch her up after. So he gave her a smaller implant and told her that when her skin was stretched she could come back and get a bigger implant in a couple years. she decided to go to dr fuentes after this and get a bigger implant and is now happy. so he said was she wanted was unrealistic, and i dont really know what to believe. maybe if she responds to this post she can say anything more that she wants to say, but i agree with her that this doctor is bad news still. And he told me about shamika, he said she was told she needed a blood transfusion after her surgery and it was against her religion supposedly to do this and because of this she developed an infection and had to have the implants removed. anyways, i had the surgery and after i was really sore. I had drains in my body, and i was draining for a long time. the whole time i kept in touch with dr fuentes who was right down the street and i would ask him questions because my gut instinct told me to be weary of this doctor. dr fuentes would come to check on me from time to time. Dr fuentes did lipo and fat grafting on me, and the fat grafting to my butt didnt give me the results i wanted. my butt looked saggy and droopy and i wanted it to be more round. i am not sure why some people can have great results with fat grafting and others cant. the lipo from him was also a bit lumpy, he told me to massage it and i did but the lumps did not go away. dr fuentes as a person was very nice to me though, and he does not have the same attitude as dr cerpa. Even though my lipo was lumpy, i am thinking of going back to dr fuentes for my butt implants because he treats his patients well and i saw pictures of his butt implants and they look fine. I trust that if dr fuentes made a mistake that he would correct it and i dont think he would put me in danger. So anyways, i was draining for over two weeks.

When it became three weeks i asked dr cerpa why and he said it must be my lyme disease. I didnt believe this, and started to worry for my safety. I asked dr fuentes about it and he said that wasnt true. that made me angry that this doctor was trying to blame this on me. that is unprofessional. then he bought tools to try to stop the draining and suggested i pay for these tools, even though it was most likely his surgical skills that caused this problem in the first place. he wanted me to pay $400 for these tools that he bought that he would probably be using on other patients in the future when he came against the same problem. finally it had become a month and i was still draining and dr fuentes suggested i might have an infection. he cultured the drainage from my butt to see if there was bacteria present and it came back that i didnt have an infection. he told me that i could however, have a subclinical infection that would not show up on the test. So after the two weeks I had already bought a return flight that i had to change because Dr. Cerpa said i had to stay longer. I had to pay another $300 to buy another flight. I thought Dr. Cerpa should be paying for these things but he insisited that it was my body that was causing these problems. So then I was still bleeding and Dr Cerpa told me that he wanted me to come into his office to do a surgery to stop the bleeding. So i went into his office and he said he was looking for a blood vessel that might be bleeding so he could cauterize it. he put me under anesthesia, and when i woke up he said he thinks he found the blood vessel and cauterized it. I had to buy an additional plane ticket, so another $300 because Dr. Cerpa said he needed me to stay longer. By now it was a little over a month and I had an open wound about 2 inches long on my butt crack and drains still in my body. I kept asking why this was happening, and every time Dr Cerpa would say different things as if he forgot what he said before. But each time he would reply with some way to blame me. He told me i must be moving around too much. That it was my lyme disease. He was angry that Dr fuentes would check on me, and he asked if he said anything bad about him when he came to visit. he asked me this because he probably knows all of the bad things people say about him. He was defensive and angry whenever anyone criticizes him. Thats not professional.

SO now it is over a month and i am still not healed and i have had to pay for two more plane tickets and hotels, food etc. I had to pay an additional $2000 for these things. So I told Dr Cerpa I think he should be paying for at least some of the hotel because this is not my fault that this complication is happening. He agreed to pay for three days of my hotel. after the three days, i was still bleeding. he asked me again to stay for more time and i told him i could not afford it. I told him i really had to go home now. he told me that i would be fine if i went home. He said the wound would heal on its own and he had sent many patients home with an open wound and they healed. Dr fuentes said that i would heal eventually if there was no infection. So i got on a plane and went home and the plane ride was so uncomfortable i even asked the flight attendants if i could stand for part of the flight. I was bleeding alot on the plane from the pressure of sitting for so long. When i got back home the bleeding was worse and continued. I kept in contact with Dr. Cerpa and he just told me to update him. I was staying at my mothers house at the time. My mother who had surgery recently on her hip had nurses coming to check on her. They checked on me and told me that i was having too much bleeding and advised I go to the E.R. It made me angry that Dr. Cerpa did not advise me to go to the E.R. when i was losing all this blood, he did not have my health and safety in mind and did not want to be blamed for his mistakes i suppose.

When i got to the E.R. they told me that i had a huge wound in my crack which i already knew but they acted like they were alarmed by it. then they did a cat scan on the implants and that showed air around the implants. they told me that the implants were being exposed to air by the wound being open in my crack and that this can cause bacterial contamination around the implants and whenever this occurs they suggest the implants to be removed. I was upset, i felt i wasted all this time and money and now was being told to remove the implants. Dr. Cerpa had warned me before i went home about seeing doctors for my butt implants in the u.s. He said that they often dont know much about butt implants and if i am having an issue with them they often advise to remove them when i dont necessarily have to. I thought about this and I contacted Dr Cerpa. He told me that i dont have to remove the implants and that i should go on antibiotics and get a WOUND VAC machine to close the wound, what he had asked me to pay for in mexico he was asking me to get another one now for myself. I contacted Dr Fuentes and he said that if I have an infection the antibiotics would only keep the infection at bay but when i stop taking them the infection could come back. This was not a risk i wanted to take and i shouldnt have had to take and i also did not want to risk having to have additional surgeries because I had to get back to work. It should be my choice at that point if i wanted to remove the implants, and i did . After I removed them the doctors stitched me up and told me that because i had an infection for so long I was probably going to drain for awhile and they told me that they found two bacterias present in the implant. One was a resistant strain of e coli and another was a common bacteria. They also told me that they found that one of the implants was ruptured, it was the side that was draining more. the surgeon told me that it was most likely from the time of insertion that this implant was ruptured. they gave me two antibiotics and i was draining again for over two weeks.

When i asked for a refund for the butt implants, Dr Cerpa did not respond right away. It took him two weeks to respond and he told me that I could have salvaged the implant and gone on antibiotics. He told me that the surgeon who removed the implant ruptured my implant even though the ruptured side was the side that was swollen and draining more for so long. He doesnt want to refund me now. So I am going to tell everyone here my story in hopes i can save someone from dealing with this doctor because i went through hell and this doctor still doesnt want to take responibility or give me a refund even for all of the trouble i went through. Some doctors will issue a refund out of good faith if a patient really went through alot even if it wasnt their fault. he will not even do that, he is refusing.

So i got on a plane and went home and the plane ride was so uncomfortable i even asked the flight attendants if i could stand for part of the flight. I was bleeding alot on the plane from the pressure of sitting for so long. When i got back home the bleeding was worse and continued. I kept in contact with Dr. Cerpa and he just told me to update him. I was staying at my mothers house at the time. My mother who had surgery recently on her hip had nurses coming to check on her. They checked on me and told me that i was having too much bleeding and advised I go to the E.R. It made me angry that Dr. Cerpa did not advise me to go to the E.R. when i was losing all this blood, he did not have my health and safety in mind and did not want to be blamed for his mistakes i suppose.

When i got to the E.R. they told me that i had a huge wound in my crack which i already knew but they acted like they were alarmed by it. then they did a cat scan on the implants and that showed air around the implants. they told me that the implants were being exposed to air by the wound being open in my crack and that this can cause bacterial contamination around the implants and whenever this occurs they suggest the implants to be removed. I was upset, i felt i wasted all this time and money and now was being told to remove the implants. Dr. Cerpa had warned me before i went home about seeing doctors for my butt implants in the u.s. He said that they often dont know much about butt implants and if i am having an issue with them they often advise to remove them when i dont necessarily have to. I thought about this and I contacted Dr Cerpa. He told me that i dont have to remove the implants and that i should go on antibiotics and get a WOUND VAC machine to close the wound, what he had asked me to pay for in mexico he was asking me to get another one now for myself. I contacted Dr Fuentes and he said that if I have an infection the antibiotics would only keep the infection at bay but when i stop taking them the infection could come back. This was not a risk i wanted to take and i shouldnt have had to take and i also did not want to risk having to have additional surgeries because I had to get back to work. It should be my choice at that point if i wanted to remove the implants, and i did . After I removed them the doctors stitched me up and told me that because i had an infection for so long I was probably going to drain for awhile and they told me that they found two bacterias present in the implant. One was a resistant strain of e coli and another was a common bacteria. They also told me that they found that one of the implants was ruptured, it was the side that was draining more. the surgeon told me that it was most likely from the time of insertion that this implant was ruptured. they gave me two antibiotics and i was draining again for over two weeks.

When i asked for a refund for the butt implants, Dr Cerpa did not respond right away. It took him two weeks to respond and he told me that I could have salvaged the implant and gone on antibiotics. He told me that the surgeon who removed the implant ruptured my implant even though the ruptured side was the side that was swollen and draining more for so long. He doesnt want to refund me now. So I am going to tell everyone here my story in hopes i can save someone from dealing with this doctor because i went through hell and this doctor still doesnt want to take responibility or give me a refund even for all of the trouble i went through. Some doctors will issue a refund out of good faith if a patient really went through alot even if it wasnt their fault. he will not even do that, he is refusing.

I am so sorry you had a bad experience and this has happened to you. I was thinking of going to him and received my quote but now hearing your story it sounds like a nightmare so much trauma to your body, money wasted and time.
