This is a serious problem locally in Guadalajara. I've come into contact with women who've had everything from synthetic oils to pig fat injected into their bodies by people such as these. BUYER, BEWARE ! Ask for credentials or a referral from your Primary Care Doctor.

Credentials alone are not enough. In addition to a referral from your primary care physician, get references from actual patients.

A Canadian friend will visit here in September and wants either Botox or Juvederm.
Any good referrals?

I read that a plastic surgeon in Mexico is a doctor who says he is.

The Importance of Research to Avoid Medical Malpractice
When you consider the possibility of going abroad, your primary thought is the low cost of treatment there compared to that in your own country. That is an enticing factor, especially if you need to be operated on immediately. Before you make plans to go, you need to narrow down your choices of medical facilities situated aboard.

You need to look through their website to ensure that they are as reliable as they say. Once you have narrowed down your selection of medical facilities, contact them to acquire further information. During your research, some of the factors that you should take into consideration include:

- Medical facilities located in Guadalajara, Mexico City, and Monterrey are considered among the very best.

- Language barriers between patient and doctor increase miscommunication. Therefore, a doctor with native English speaking abilities is recommended.

- The qualifications of the doctor should be clearly present on the site.

Apart from looking at the site of the medical facility, you should contact them to obtain more information about it, its doctors, and the staff. Since you can run into several problems such as delay in the time of recovery, you have to make sure that the medical facility is equipped to take you in if something like that occurs.

Most importantly, remember that the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada for instance, are not void of such incidents occurring at their medical facility. In every country, you will find doctors that do not have the qualifications of performing a medical surgery. Hence, rejecting countries such as Mexico for malpractice is unfair to the doctors who are highly qualified to perform surgeries.
