    THAT should tell you SOMETHING about the quality of plastic surgery and all medical procedures here!!!!!!!!!!

    CCCCCCCCCCC,
    it should tell you that it is urgently time to get a new wife.
    and that would also be cheaper than any surgery, lol.
    almost all expat friends around me use local Dentists and never did i hear not even a single one complaining about a thing.
    they are happy with the quality of work done, with the 1st rate materials, the up to date equipments used etc etc.
    the friendlyness and personal treatment stands worlds above 1st world Monster Clinics.
    the prices, well, a fraction of what the same work in the same quality would cost in Germany, and no flight to europe nor any other travel necessary.
    for example my own ARS Humano local insurance plan includes 2 Implants per Year for Free(paid by the insurance).
    I did not use that, yet, but my biz partner did, finished mayor dental work 2 days ago. he is originally Austrian, extremely picky about a dentist visit. he firstly had to go here out of a emergency(mayor dental pain of unknown origen). he was 100% pleasantly surprised about the great personal treatment and about the quick and painless procedures to get his problem solved. so he decided to stop to fly back home for his dental visits and finally now he even took advantage of the 2 free implants per year. he was completely happy about procedures and quality of work, already checking when the "Insurance Year/deadline" is over as he want's/needs a 3rd implant.
    and an other big advantage in general, when visiting private clinics/doctors here in DR, is that you get an appointment relatively quick(not months of advance bookings for specific procedures) and when you show up on time for your apointment it will be your turn on time, not the so often long hrs extra waits as we been used to in Germany.

    My wife had work done by one of the surgeon's in dv8's family and he is is an awesome guy and equally awesome Surgeon.

    My wife is very happy with his work and I am even happier!!!

    We have referred a few of our friends to him and they love him too!! His name is Dr Carlos Mojica de Leon and he works at Clinica Union Medica in Santiago

    I would not come to the DR specifically for surgeries though!

    A friend of a friend came to SD a month ago for Dental work and was happy with the work but she had to change recovery places a few times bc i guess they were not up to standard. She thought she knew 3rd world bc she has been to Mexico so was a little horrified...LMAO
    She is coming back again in the summer to finish all the work.
