Dr. Munoz Meza is amazing in every way. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and confident with my decision to have plastic surgery. He listened to what I wanted and delivered. I was up and walking around Rosarito on postop day 4 of my mommy makeover. He has the best bed side manner and is truly an artist. THANK YOU FOR MY DREAM BODY!!!

Muy buen servicio y mucha amabilidad, cuartos grandes, tv con muchos canales, baños amplios y muy limpio. La única sugerencias es que deberían poner la TV mas centrada para que sea visible desde la sala.

En la clinica me trataron bien, es una clinica sencilla, vieja, pero te tratan bien. El doctor que me opero no lo recomiendo (Huesca), no le da NADA de seguimiento a sus pacientes, solo le interesa cobrar y se olvida de paciente

We came to to Hospital Angeles from Canada for the Functional Oncology Clinic. The clinic definitely saved my husband’s life...however, you need to be prepared for less timely and reliable customer service once they get your money, and especially if you need to go back for follow-up treatments. When you try to talk to them about this, the response is, “I’m so sorry you feel this way.” No accountability and no reparation. Although they initially come across as being 100% about caring for people, please remember that it is still a business to them. It is still about the money. Just a heads up so you’re not disillusioned like we were.

I came here to visit a special friend of ours. She was an employee of the hospital (which we did not know) Our friend was hit by a car while walking across the street. She was hospitalized here and had surgery also. When we arrived the staff showed us to their little breakfast/lunch bistro area. We ordered some food and coffees and some tea. We were awaiting our turn to visit our friend. When we tried to pay for our meals and drinks we were told that it was on the hospital and that any friends of their employee (our friend) were friends of theirs also. We had a wonderful visit. We noticed how the great care our friend was receiving. The nurses were also amazing. What a great hospital. We are so happy to know our special friend worked there and received such professional and courteous service. Thank you...Jay

Best doctors, staff and eye surgery ever. My husband and nephew did the surgery yesterday and today we come back for the check up. Now, both have 20/20 vision and they are very happy. It was an awesome experience and excellent care. We are coming back in three months for last check-up and with another family member to get his surgery. I cannot express how happy we are with the results and with the whole experience. Thank you to all the staff and doctors from CODET Institute and we will see you soon.

World class. I have been coming to CODET for over ten years and have nothing but consistent and top notch care. I recently had my laser eye surgery with Dr. Chayet and things went extremely well. I couldn’t believe how quick and effective the surgery was.

I know considering eye surgery is an important decision, and with so many options is hard to choose the one that best suits you. Thankfully, CODET made the decision extremely easy for me, from the moment I stepped into the building, I felt the genuine care from all of the personnel. They answered all of my questions and kept reminding me of all the care I needed to take before and after my corrective eye surgery. And who better than Dr Chayet, the main guy, to perform my surgery. Extremely satisfied with the results, do not hesitate to visit and choose them...satisfaction guaranteed.

I wish I could give zero stars. I booked my surgery 2 month ahead of time and got multiple confirmations from them that I was good to go, they even confirmed all my appointment the day of my flight. Then few minutes before getting on my airplane, they sent me a message saying that they forgot that all doctors will be gone and nobody will be able to do my surgery. This was beyond unprofessional. They knew ahead of time their doctors would be gone at a conference as they said, not 5 minutes before. I lost money for flights and hotel reservation I paid for ahead of time. I am writing an update to my story on October 18 2019: I changed my review from one star to three stars. Even though I never got my surgery, Codet CEO, Daniel, reimbursed my airfare and hotel losses by sending me a check. They at least made it right. I appreciate them caring.

When Dr. Aceves Website says "• Board certification • Experience • Aesthetics • An emotional connection" all are correct. I am thrilled with my mini lift. I came from Rosarito because I trust him with my face and life. He is tactful and honest. I drove back two days after my surgery. Beautiful and fast healing and my friends agree he is an artist. You can find an excellent surgeon and emotional connection in one Dr. I will only let my friends go to him because I trust and appreciate his skill and character and I know they are in good hands. No worries.

Questions and answers

What is plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty that allows reconstructing, restores, or changes the human body. Plastic surgery unites two subspecialties:

  • Reconstructive plastic surgery. It is done when a patient needs to reconstruct some body parts caused by trauma, diseases, tumors, congenital deformities. Reconstructive surgery allows to restore/improve the functioning of some parts of the body and appearance.
  • Cosmetic plastic surgery. It is carried out when a patient needs only to improve the appearance not body parts structure or their functioning.

What indications are for plastic surgery?

Indications for plastic surgery depends on the case. However, there are general signs when a procedure is indicated:

  • correct cosmetic defects caused by age changes
  • improve body contour
  • get rid of excess fat
  • enlarge or reduce some parts of the body
  • improve the functioning or esthetic look of some parts of the body caused by diseases or trauma.

If you have any medical issues, get a consultation with a doctor to decide whether plastic surgery is a proper option for you. 

When plastic surgery is contraindicated?

Performing of plastic surgery can be limited or canceled if a patient has some contraindications. The most common are:

  • Oncological diseases. When plastic surgery is processed, malignant cells can be replaced by accident and cause cancer spread. Also, the risk of clotting is increased.
  • Diabetes. In the case of diabetes, the blood supply is reduced, which can lead to necrosis in the operated area.
  • Smoking. A patient needs to give up smoking at least for several weeks before and after surgery. Nicotine narrows down the vessels and capillaries reducing the blood supply of tissues. As a result, the healing process goes slow and with complications.
  • Infections. If you have any infection, you need to warn your doctor and decide whether it can be a contraindication for surgery.
  • Pregnancy. Anesthesia or some medications applied during or after surgery can negatively affect the fetus.

A patient has to discuss with a plastic surgeon all existing health problems and, if necessary, undergo the medical tests. It will help to avoid possible side effects of plastic surgery and worsening health conditions.

What is preoperative preparation for plastic surgery?

The preoperative preparation for plastic surgery includes the following steps:

  1. Arrival at a chosen plastic surgery clinic.
  2. Seeing a doctor who will perform a procedure.
  3. Medical testing (blood and urine analysis + some specific tests depending on the plastic surgery type)

If you have no contraindications for plastic surgery, a doctor appoints an operation the next day after a visit. 

How long does the recovery period take?

The length of the recovery period depends on the plastic surgery type that has been performed. On average, it takes about 2-3 weeks before a patient returns to work and daily routine life. For some surgeries, it can take a year to see a final result, get rid of swelling and scars.

Is plastic surgery safe in Mexico?

Plastic surgery is considered a safe procedure only in case you choose a qualified doctor to manage an operation. Also, you need to be realistic about the changes of your appearance and not to demand some extreme corrections of the body. To minimize complications, warn a plastic surgeon about your health conditions, some chronic diseases, infections, and bad habits.

What are the side effects of plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery does not bring many side effects in case an experienced doctor carries out a procedure. However, you have to be aware of the following side effects and risks:

  • Hematomas. This is a frequent complication that occurs after all types of surgeries, not only plastic ones. Hematomas take place in about 1% of patients after breast augmentation or facelift. 
  • Swelling. After almost all intervention a patient can observe swelling. Usually, it disappears in several weeks after surgery. In some cases, it may take place for a couple of months.
  • Blood loss. Blood loss is a rare complication that can happen on the operating table or after surgery. If you feel weakness after an operation, inform your doctor.
  • Infection. This side effect takes place in about 1-2.5% of cases. To manage this condition, antibiotics can be prescribed.
  • Nerve damage. Patients often feel the numbness of the area where the operation has been performed. In most of the cases, it is temporary, and sensitivity recovers after a while.
  • Scarring. Scarring remains visible rare. In most of the cases, it disappears over time or becomes almost invisible.
  • Thrombosis. It can happen in 0.09% of all plastic surgeries. However, this is a severe complication and some cases can be even fatal. 

Does insurance cover plastic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is rarely covered by health insurance. Things are different with reconstructive surgery: if a patient needs to correct defects of appearance caused by disease or trauma, recover the functioning of some parts of the body, the insurance will cover the cost of the procedure.

Why is Mexico trendy for medical tourism?

Mexico is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from the USA and Canada prefer treatment in Mexico to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Mexico annually. So Mexico is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Mexico is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 60% on services compared to Canada or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services is provided here?

In Mexico, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

What documents are required to apply for a visa to Mexico for treatment?

Visas for travel to Mexico require a number of documents. Lists of documents includes:

  • ID card
  • confirmation of online registration and filling out the questionnaire
  • certificate of income and availability of funds
  • insurance policy for a stay in Mexico (original and copy)
  • 2 photos (5x6)
  • visa receipt
  • booking of flight and hotel
  • medical opinion about the need for treatment.
