Jake's Report on Medical Tourism: The American Perspective

I had my first surgery in August 2008 — penis girth and length enhancement.

I had a lot of fear back then — fear of being judged inadequate, fear of life, death, and everything in between.

This surgery gave me one less thing to worry about, and that’s the best gift the Sava Perovic team could have given me.

The Serbians I spoke to back then seemed very sensitive to how I might perceive them because of the whole Bosnia situation back in the 90s.

Honestly, I felt like I should apologize to them for something, I just didn’t know what for.

The reality was that I would have been nervous that this was a well-orchestrated scam in any country. Obviously I was relieved that it wasn’t.

I went back twice after the initial visit.

The only advice I have for anybody considering surgery is this: DO NOT PLAY WITH YOUR PENIS AFTER SURGERY.

This is very important.

The surgery is safe and effective, but after the first surgery I gave myself a seroma.

After my second surgery, I had sex too early and broke a scaffold apart.

I never needed to see a doctor in the USA, even though I had complications because everything resolved by itself.

It’s not easy to refrain from touching yourself, but you absolutely should.

Patient care in either of the primary hospitals they use is world-class.

I defy any man not to fall in love with at least one nurse while you’re there.

They’re all amazing.

It is hard to be objective when you spend your life savings on something.

I felt a bit prickly, and I was critical of every little thing, and Richard RothHaas always heard from me when I thought of something they could have handled better.

Looking back, I realize that they really did a first-class job.

I feel good about everyone who was involved, even if they think I was a huge pain in the ass.

Anybody who is on the fence about having this surgery because they think it will be painful, they think it’s a scam, or they think badly of Serbians for one reason or another, I recommend you do it.

I had my own fears, but they all turned out to be false.

It may still be hard for you to believe that doctors in a foreign country can do something doctors here in the USA can’t do, but that’s just because of our ethnocentric upbringing.

Seriously, according to a 2005 survey, only 40% of US citizens believed in the theory of evolution. Are we Americans really in a position to say we’re smarter than everyone else?

Go to Serbia and find out for yourself.

Dr Djinovic and his entire team are brilliant.

I wouldn’t have let them perform surgery on my penis three times if they weren’t.
