What’s all the hype about medical tourism anyway? Well, when you consider how
many men and women want to look and feel younger, it’s no wonder people are
looking outside Europe, Canada
and the States where savings from 40 to 70 per cent are common for such
procedures as facelifts and cosmetic dentistry.
Cost is not the only issue to consider. Finding doctors and hospitals that are
at the level of professionalism equal to or greater than what is available in
their own countries is even more important. That’s why Anne Dyer, medical
director of Plaza Montaña Health and Beauty Center,
in Ajijic, Mexico, has spent the last five
years bringing together just the right English-speaking, board-certified
physicians, medical facilities, cosmetic dentists, and
highly trained nurses and medical staff.
Anne provides a complete package for her local and medical tourism clients. Her
services include scheduling appointments with the specialists, transportation
to and from a private surgical clinic—and most importantly, before, during and
after care at her bed and breakfast.
It all starts with scheduling a medical consultation right on the premises of
Plaza La Montaña. The doctors are very honest about who is a good candidate and
who isn’t and which procedure is right for them. Their goal is to make each
person look the very best they can.
Who takes advantage of this complete package? A prime example is the group of
four women who recently traveled to Plaza Montaña Health and Beauty Center
from New York City.
One of the women completed her adventure last year and decided to come back
with her three friends—not only as a support system, but also to relax and
enjoy the beauty of the quaint Mexican village of Ajijic, located on the shores
of Lake Chapala.
The ladies stayed for 16 days in Casita Montaña bed and breakfast. Everything
was arranged in advance so no time was wasted. A couple of days after their
arrival, the surgeries began. Anne’s private nurse was on premises when they
returned from the clinic to care for them. The doctor himself visited several
times to remove the stitches and make sure everything was progressing as it
Within a few days after surgery the ladies were out exploring this beautiful
area. They enjoyed some shopping, attended dinner parties and local cultural
events. In fact, they had a real vacation. The best part was the fact they
returned home looking younger, healthier and much happier.
How long have you threatened to lose weight or stop smoking? This would be an
excellent time to carry out those promises you made to yourself.
By the way, if you lose weight after your facelift, the overall success of your
procedure could be diminished. The objective of any surgeries of this type is
to eliminate pockets of fat and remove as much loose skin as possible—making up
for what you and gravity have done to your body over the years. If you wait
until after your procedure, you may not get the full benefits of what the
doctor can accomplish for you.
Are you still smoking? Now would be a great time to quit—in fact, it’s
imperative that you don’t smoke at least two weeks before surgery to eliminate
the possibility of excessive bleeding. Also, if you are on blood thinners, talk
to your regular doctor about how to discontinue the medication for about 14
days prior to surgery.
Advanced methods of less invasive surgeries are being developed every day. A
new liposuction procedure for that “bat wing” look under your upper arms is now
available and those unsightly veins in your legs can be eliminated in an out-patient
procedure. What this means to you is less trauma to your body, less healing
time, and less money spent.
During your initial consultation, the doctors will discuss the best types of
procedures for you. They are always up to date on state-of-the-art methods and
how to implement them to achieve your new look.
Why not consider finding your own fountain of youth. La Montaña Health and Beauty Center
