Dr. Oscar Suarez Costa Rica - Recommendation? No. - Bad work and PIP - the no responsibility story

Dr. Oscar Suarez Costa Rica - Recommendation? No.


My not-so-good experiences with Dr. Oscar A. Suarez, Costa Rica, CIMA hospital 7th floor.

I attach some pictures to this post so everyone can imagine about what I write.

PIP silicone gel-filled implants were never approved for use in the United States and patients would need to have been implanted outside the United States to have received the implants of concern.
AFSSAPS, the French Regulatory Authority, recommended that women with PIP implants have them removed by their surgeons as a “preventative measure not of an urgent measure”.

Dr. Oscar Suarez Costa Rica - My History
  • 2007-2008 Lots of problems with PIP implants in Europe.
  • 2009 - October FDA warning about PIP implants.
  • 2010 - January 21 I had my 1st (and I thought last) breast augmentation. Plastic surgeon: Dr. Oscar A. Suarez, Costa Rica, OAS, CIMA hospital. He placed PIP implants. In 2010. Please see this link: Rate your plastic surgeon costa rica
  • 2010 - March The French company PIP was ordered by AFSSAPS, to withdraw and suspend marketing, distribution, and exportation of their implants. Slight pain in my right breast and feeling sickish after 1st breast surgery.
  • 2011 - August 29 Check because the pain. Dr. Suarez said everything was normal a gave me a creme to apply.
  • 2012 - January 30 Meeting with Dr. Oscar Suarez, Costa Rica, he told me that I have PIP implants. But they haven't to be removed. I should check them regular and wait until a problem appears. After 45 minutes discussion - without any apology - but with a lot of excuses, he offered to replace them. Cost for new Mentor implants, hospital, medication, post-op etc. approx. $2,8000.
  • 2012 - February Consultation of different plastic surgeons. They stated that the surgery from Dr. Suarez was not properly done. I decided to undergo a reconstructive breast surgery to replace the PIP implants with Mentor ones and to reconstruct the "work" from Dr. Suarez. (Was a idea of a genius to use another (extremely skilled) plastic surgeon instead of Dr. Suarez and not saving a little bit of money).
  • 2012 - February 15 - 2nd (reconstructive) breast surgery. PIP's replaced, Dr. Suarez' "work" reconstructed.

Until today, everything is fine, result is exceptional.
No pain, no sickish feeling anymore.

All in all for 1st and 2nd surgeries: $8,500.

Btw., this is a VERY SHORT VERSION of the story with Dr. Oscar Suarez, Costa Rica.
If I find the time - and I will find the time - I publish the complete story.

So, choose your plastic surgeon extremely carefully. In Costa Rica are very good ones - and unfortunately not-so-good ones.

Pura Vida,


Picture 1 - This is the result of the surgery from Dr. Oscar Suarez, Costa Rica. Note the symmetry left and right. I don't want to explain details of his work and what he did wrong. I guess, everyone can imagine what I mean. You can see clearly that the right pectoralis major muscle was not properly cut.

Picture 2 - My second plastic surgeon explains in a movie that the implants were displaced laterally (hanging to the sides) due to a too wide implantation pocket, thanks to Dr. Suarez, Costa Rica.

Picture 3 - Hanging to the sides…

Picture 4 - RESULT AFTER reconstructive surgery (which was NOT done by Dr. Oscar Suarez, Costa Rica): Nice symmetry and breast shape. I am still happy with them.
