Plastic Surgery News Special Report Response

March 31, 2014

This letter was received in response to the Plastic Surgery News Special Report:

Good Morning,

Regarding your chronicle: CDC urges plastic surgeons to be alert for rapidly growing Mycobacterium infections from cases performed in the Dominican Republic, I would like you to know that Medicine in the Dominican Republic is of a very good quality. Many nationals that have gone abroad to pursue professional opportunities take advantage of the summer vacations to improve their body image and also their self esteem but also to treat health issues since here, with well capacitated health professionals, they get the well deserve human treatment, warmth and hospitality that is well known. Even Medicaid aproves treatments in local centers in our country.

We are not trying to excuse the infections cases of what happened, but with further research you’d see that the incidents and complications in the last decade referring to Dominican Plastic surgery are from the same people, that can be counted with the fingers of one hand. We have never be in favor of Lipoturism, nor we recommend to people who are not Dominican nationals or that don't live here to go through any mayor procedure here, since they will not be having an adequate follow-up to recovery. Your server here works in a General Hospital, heart surgery pioneer center in the Dominican Republic, the prestigious Corazones Unidos Clinic in the capital city of Santo Domingo, in which we have only have a single case of infection in our professional labor, and not a single human life has been lost. We have a super equipped Intensive Care Unit right in front of the Operating Rooms, where several other successful plastic surgeons also operate on. Not all the plastic surgeries performed by almost a hundred capacitated surgeons get infected nor complicated as it was stated by the north American colleague at the end of this chronicle. What we want to conclude with this, as Chair of the International Committee for 2011/2016 of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery- ASAPS is that whoever Dominican living abroad wants to take advantage of their vacations to come to their birth country for a cosmetic procedure, should make a detailed investigation of the physician performing the procedure, their track record etc., since not everything cheap is always good, and not all patients qualify for a aesthetic procedure, especially if they are overweight anemic or don’t have enough recovery time.

Cristine Meredith Miele Foundation

Please help ImplantInfo support breast cancer research through the Cristine Meredith Miele Foundation, set up in loving memory of Cristine “Crissy” Miele. Crissy was a loving wife and mother and dedicated member of the ImplantInfo family who lost her battle with breast cancer in July 2010.

Your donations support Dr. Kenneth Offit and his research team. They are focusing genetic testing on families, like Crissy’s, where breast cancer is hereditary and develops from a yet unidentified gene mutation. Advances can improve early detection and help future generations, including Crissy’s daughters.

No donation is too small, and your support means the world. Please help us continue Crissy’s courageous fight.
