I met Dr. Paolo Mendez on a previous visit to Florianopolis. He came very highly recommended. After doing some research at home I went ahead and scheduled my surgical procedure. I flew in about 5 days prior to the surgery. I will be staying 5 weeks for recovery as suggested by Dr. Mendez. His office staff is wonderful and professional. Very attentive to your every need and concern. Dr. Mendez speaks English as well as Portuguese, but his staff does not. If you do not speak Portuguese I recommend bringing someone along that does. Doctor Mendez is wonderful, I can’t say enough about him, his practice or staff. They are all very caring. They made me feel like part of the family.

I had the option of doing my pre-op test done at home in the United States or here. I did both. I had some done at home and labs done here. The Lab was very close.

Surgery was a few days later. The morning of the surgery since I was traveling alone, I decided to check in at the clinic/hospital a bit early. I wanted to make sure, I had time to ask questions and relax a bit. Again everyone was so kind and helpful. They took me upstairs to a private room with bathroom and shower, and a balcony that overlooked the city. This was a nice surprise. The nurse gave me instructions to take a shower and shampoo my hair with a special shampoo. When I was done I relaxed in bed.

When she returned we walked down to the operating room. In the operating room I spoke to Dr. Mendez, who went over a few things. He introduced me to the anesthesiologist Dr. Pablo, another plastic surgeon Dr. Diego, that will assist him and two nurses. They immediately made me feel at ease. We talk for a few minutes about the procedure, review any allergies and medical history again, and then it’s nite, nite time. I woke up back in my room. Feeling no pain. The surgery took about 3 1/2 hours. Since he recommended staying one night in the hospital, I had the option of having a private nurse that would stay with me all night. Definitely worth it. Very reasonably priced. She helps you get up and go to the restroom, gets ice as needed, helps you eat. I was also checked on by another doctor and nurse working at the hospital that evening.

The next morning I was able to go home after one more visit from my doctor, and his assistant. Time to go relax. Over the next few weeks, I see Dr. Mendez once a week for post-op visits. I have a total of 4-5 visits. He explains how procedures went. Exactly what he did. Let’s me know what to expect over next the few weeks and any restrictions I may have.

My last visit was yesterday. I’m healing nicely. Any stitches on the outside have been removed, and interior stitches dissolved. I’m released to return home. I’m staying a few extra days to enjoy the weather and the beach. Although I was able to go to the beach while healing, with hat and sunscreen, I wasn’t able to go into the ocean. The ocean here is beautiful.

I will miss Floripa and the doctors and staff. Obrigado to Everyone!

As far as cost. Amazing! Depending on where you live, at least half the cost if not more of doing this in the United States. But cost should not be the only reason you pick a clinic or doctor. Check them out carefully and get recommendations from past patients.

I chose this clinic because of recommendations of 2 two friends that happened to be doctors in this city. I was very impressed with this clinic, Doctor Paolo Mendez and the staff. They are all very professional. The clinic is beautiful. They exceeded my expectations and made me feel very comfortable and safe with their expertise and high quality of service. I would definitely return for any future needs and would definitely recommend them to anyone seeking plastic surgery.

Multi Obrigado to everyone. I will miss them. They made me feel like part of their family. Ciao Ciao!

Haven't had a treatment yet. I did have a consultation with Dr. Mendez regarding a face lift and tummy tuck.. I liked him right away. Friendly, honest and very informative. He seems to be up to date on last eat treatments. He will tell you if he doesn't think he can do something. And he will provide a referral if you need one. He is very thorough in his explanation of your surgery and what to expect. I was pleased with our consultation, and will be making appointment soon.
