I referred I had something done vs I got something done.
But While watching this video, At 1:07 found it is used "I got my plastic surgery done in Mexico", which according to answer in above link means "I had done plastic surgery on my own in Mexico".
Confused?

    I don't see why do you think it means "I had done plastic surgery on my own in Mexico".. – CowperKettle Nov 12 '15 at 14:32
  • @TRomano, CopperKettle Answer in question I referred, says that ""Got it done" usually means that the speaker carried the action himself." Made me me think that way. – AskQ Nov 12 '15 at 14:42
  • But FumbleFingers said there in comments: "to get it done implies nothing about whether it'll be done by you or someone else" – CowperKettle Nov 12 '15 at 14:43
