I don't have the answer. I also heard Brazil was the place so I scheduled with makeover travel. Not Brazil, but Brazilian trained doctors. Waiting for a reply. How soon are you planning?

If you look at this site and the reviews on realself you can find some information, there are some excellent surgeons in Brazil and also in Mexico. I had a full facelift and eyelift in Mexico and am very happy with the natural results. For me my doctor is the absolutely best :) but if money is no object you probably would be able to find someone in the U.S., some celebrities even say who their surgeon is...

Two things that I think are a must: make sure the doctor is board certified, experienced, and although it sounds like a minor thing I think it is important that the doctor have before and after photos on his or her website. Sending them to you is a decent alternative but I would be wary of a surgeon with no photos at all online for the world to see. Plus you want to know what you can expect: it's your face after all!

Hey girlygirl: I had my work done with Dr. Meza in Mexico City and stayed overnight with a nurse and a second doctor, didn't need anything more than that but for something like a TT probably he would do the operation in Cuernavaca, he has a recovery house there.

I like Tim Marten in San Francisco. He can definitely be consider in the highest echelon. What is important is that you like the doctor's style, communicate well and agree on a desired outcome. Take you time in deciding who is best for you.

There are excellent surgeons in the US and in other countries, but in my opinion, it is better to stay close to where you live, in case something goes wrong. If you are an American and you get surgery outside of the US and something goes wrong, you may have little or no legal recourse. Also, if you need follow-up for a revision or other issue, it will require more travel and expense. So, in my opinion, saving money isn't the best reason to choose a surgeon.

I have considered going to another state within the US for my surgery, but even doing that is a problem if something goes wrong.

I agree that price should not be the priority, but not everyone goes abroad for that reason, it is just an added bonus for quality care. If one can get the very top surgeons abroad for a half or less of what the celebrity surgeons in the U.S. charge, plus get specialized attention, it is an option worth considering. I was not "shopping around" for the best deal. I was looking for the right doctor and fortunately for me I found him.

For body work, especially thigh lifts, butt lifts or what I call the "Rio-Operation" (combo but and thigh lift), some of the BEST PSs in the WORLD are in Brazil. Does not mean every doc in Brazil is 'the doc for you'. Nor does it mean you will find the best ones in those 'tour packages'. What I'm saying is some of the pre-eminent PSs who are really good at the body lifts are in Brazil.
Please Note: NO PMs please.

You might want to look at Plasticsurgeryourneys.com. The favored face lift doctor is Dr. Pino in Costa Rica. When you look Tic's...gallery you will be impressed. Her name is Terri and you will find her helpful, wise and intelligent. Dr. Pino was trained and had a practice in Miami some years ago.

Some other highly regarded doctors oversees are as expensive as US doctors. Fortunately, there are a few who are affordable.

People have different opinions when it comes to "who does the best" whatever. But I have had several friends that have gone to Dr. Frank Ryan for face lifts and they have had excellent results and experiences with him and his staff. I have contemplated doing the FL for several years now. And if I do in fact decide to go through with it, I wouldn't go anywhere else but to Dr. Frank Ryan.

I think one of the best celebrity FLs I've seen is Diane Sawyer. I read that her PS is Derrick Antell in NYC. All the best
