Fed-up of your tummy spilling over your waistband? Tired of trying (but failing) to lose those love handles? Then you might want to take a look at the range of tummy tuck hospitals Tijuana boasts. Promising value-for-money, as well as quality surgeons, this Mexican Border city could hold the answer to finally achieving that slimmer waistline.
As one of the most crossed borders in the world, Tijuana is still a huge draw for Americans . The city has an emerging hipster scene with contemporary bars, restaurants and galleries springing up off the main La Revolucion thoroughfare, and there are plenty of hotels at varying price points in which to stay.
For medical tourists, the city really does tick all the boxes in terms of accessibility. Two international airports, one in Tijuana plus another over the Border in neighboring San Diego, make this an easy destination to reach, even if you are not based in or near California. Drivers can also take advantage of the Fast Pass medical lanes to make light work of the lines waiting at the Border.

Is it Feasible to Have a Tummy Tuck in Tijuana as a Medical Tourist?
It is feasible to have almost any surgical procedure abroad, but it is up to you to decide whether it’s for you. Don’t make the mistake that it is a ‘vacation’ in the traditional sense of the word. Tummy tuck surgery is a big undertaking and you should give yourself plenty of time to recover, and not be in a hurry to travel back home too soon after your surgery.
The anesthetic will inevitably leave you feeling groggy for a few days after your surgery and it’s normal to feel slight discomfort and pain while your body recovers. Getting up and about relatively soon after surgery does help reduce swelling which speeds up recovery time. However, any light movement may well be restricted to the comfort of your hotel room rather than going outside.
The key is to be prepared. Find out all you can from your surgeon, other patients and forums— and be fully aware that recovery may feel like a long slog in the first couple of weeks.
If you know what to expect, the tummy tuck hospitals in Tijuana could be the perfect choice for you, providing you have done your research fully and understand all the implications.
