Baez Quote


So I heard back from Dr. Australia Baez.
Her price was reasonable but did not address my desire for a breast list.  So that was frustrating, but after a 1/2 dozen quotes I have gotten it is never as simple or direct as I would like it to be. Her prices does not include a recovery house which is fine... I like the idea of finding my own based on my research. 

Hello---
Thank you for thinking of me for an evaluation of plastic surgery, for realization
of all
 the surgeries you requested the most important thing is that you must be healthy and the cardiologist must approve that we can perform all procedures. Price  for the surgeries that you are requesting, tummy tuck, liposculture to abdomen  waist, sides, back, inner thighs and Brazilian butt lift is US$ 3700 dollars, which includes:

-evaluation by plastic surgeon
-Cardiovascular evaluation (any other evaluation needed by pulmonologist or any specialist is not included)
- Laboratory exams
-Anesthesia
-Surgeries
-Overnight stay in the clinic (only for the day of your surgery )
-First compressive garment
-Free of charge follow ups (transportation not included)
-Medication post-surgery (antibiotics and analgesics) 
- Lymphatic drain massages and ultrasound massages are not included, cost is 300 dollars extra
- Recovery house is not included in the quote

THIS  QUOTE IS GOOD FOR 6 MONTHS.


You  need to weigh less than 200 pounds in order to get surgery


You can  include a medical insure for complications after a plastic surgery, it covers
all services you need in and out of country, it costs from 150-200 USD
depending on the amount of surgery you will get. If you have any clinical
condition you must obtain clearance from your doctor, if you smoke you
must quit two months before surgery and have clearance of your pulmonologist
.
The amount of fat transfer to your buttocks depends on how many cc can be
extracted with liposuction. Your  results also depend on your hemoglobin level if you want to get excellent  results you really have to be healthy and no anemia and please ask your primary
can doctor to take some blood test like glycaemia, full blood cell count and
creatinine at least to know if you can have all surgeries done. You can begin
to take vitamins once your surgery appointment is near (Iron, Vitamin C and B12
plus Folic acid are very helpful).


Important info: Your  date for surgery is important because I work from Monday to Friday (days for
surgery are from Tuesday to Friday). I usually have one patient per day, you  also have to arrive one day before surgery to be evaluated and have lab work done, and if you are arriving early it is better for you because lab tests can  be done from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm.


Medication  included in you package are antibiotics, analgesics and gastric protection
medication, all drugs provided are given to take by mouth, but you will have to  buy Enoxaparin, water pill and creams for bruises (arnica gel) and any other
medication not previously included, medicines aren’t expensive here so you will  spend around 200 dollars. Massages are not included. You should bring compression socks to wear them after surgery. 

You can also bring your own medication; here is a list of basic meds

  • Augmentin 1gr every twelve hours for ten days (antibiotic)
  • Omeprazole or any other antacid for 5 days one every day
  • Arnica gel
  • Medication for nausea
  • Water pill
  • Lovenox 40 mg every day for 7 days
  • Medication for itching (not every patient but some feel itching)
  • Any strong medication for pain like percoset every 6 to 8 hours for 5 days



Your  compressive garment included is a Mariae’s brand item if you want one more  garment cost 120-150 dollars. You will need to buy a stage two faja 5-7 days  after your surgery so if you want you can bring one or buy it here in a faja store. 


I work  with a team, my cardiologist will evaluate you and my anesthesiologist will examine you and discuss what type of anesthesia suits you right, you might have epidural block or general anesthesia. Anesthesiologist and cardiologist have the last word about how many procedures can be done safely on you.


If you have a tummy tuck, we include with a tummy tuck muscle repair. If you are aiming to have a breast augmentation, there are several brands of breast  implants but all are silicone gel cohesive, texturized implants (Silimed, Eurosilicone, and Donasis) depending on the brand you choose then your quote  might be lower or higher, (Silimed is the most expensive brand as they have the
approval of FDA ). In the quote you receive we generally  include Eurosilicone implants for your surgery. 

PLASTIC SURGERY IS NOT THE SAME AS WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY; YOU HAVE TO BE INSIDE NORMAL RANGE OF BMI  (BODY MASS INDEX) OR JUST OVERWEIGHT TO HAVE SURGERY. ANESTHESIOLOGIST REQUEST  THAT PATIENTS MUST WEIGHT 200 POUNDS OR LESS. IF YOU SMOKE OR USE ADDICTIVE  DRUGS YOU MUST QUIT THEM ONE OR TWO MONTHS BEFORE  SURGERY AND TWO MONTHS AFTER TOO IN ORDER TO GET GOOD RESULTS AND NO COMPLICATIONS. PLASTIC SURGERIES ARE FOR HEALTHY PEOPLE OR THOSE WHO HAVE ANY  CLINICAL CONDITION BUT ARE UNDER CONTROL, IF YOU HAVE ANY DISEASE YOU HAVE TO CONSULT AND GET APPROVAL OF YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE SURGERY.

We are  located in Santo Domingo (capital of the country), Dominican Republic; the
nearest airport is Las Americas International Airport (SDQ). I work at
Instituto de Cirugia Especializada, the clinic is placed in Gazcue neighborhood
(Address is Bolivar Avenue 208, suite 405, 4th floor), and it is near to hotels
and colonial zone; my cellphone number is 18098908143 and office number
18096899342 if you can’t reach me at this numbers you can call my husband Dr.
Rodriguez so he can answer your questions, he is available in the morning from
9am to 1 pm
. If you need  transportation or a recovery house, there are several in Santo Domingo areas; I  don’t work with an exclusive recovery house and i don’t have a preferred one,
these recovery houses are near clinic: Yasmin, Real recovery Armonia, Maria and
Daisy. If you stay in a recovery house you will have most of services you need
in just one place, most of recovery house include airport pick up if you need a
taxi driver to pick you up at the airport I can included but you need to
requested at least 3 days before your appointment, transportation included is
from Las Americas international airport to my office only. You can stay in a
hotel but you will need to come with someone else so that person can take care
of you. You will need to come to my office for follow up 2-3 times during your
stay in the country. 

This is a link in Google maps with the location of my clinic.

You will have to stay in Santo Domingo from 10 -14 days depending on the surgeries you will
get done. You will be able to get back to your work in two weeks (average). I
know some English but I can’t speak fluently, my assistant will help me in your
evaluation to have a better communication.

Quotes are good for 6 months after that cost might change or some items could not be
included. 
I just  accept payment in cash (US dollars) for your surgery. It is necessary to deposit to my bank account to lock a surgery date unless you are requesting a
date in a week or less, you can do a deposit of 200 USD to lock your date and
this deposit is not refundable. Once you do a deposit that amount is
deducted from your quote.
 Once you deposit the money you can send me an email and i will confirm that everything is ok. Questions or doubts
about the price or the elements included in your surgery package just email and
I will reply as fast as I can but please try to send all of them in just an email in order to make things easier for me as I receive several emails in just
one day.



Sincerely,
     Australia Fragoso Baez, MD.
     Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.
