Why Tijuana?

For Americans living along the border—in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas—Tijuana and other border towns like Mexicali, Los Algodones and Tecate, are quick and easy to reach. Sharing the border with San Diego in California, you (or somebody accompanying you) can drive to Tijuana with a Fast Pass that allows access to the Medical Lane, which means no waiting in line. Those flying in from further afield have a choice of two international airports – Tijuana on the Mexico side and San Diego on the US side.

Tijuana has long been popular with tourists, especially day-trippers looking for a quick break. With this influx of visitors and a two-decade focus on building out its healthcare infrastructure, Tijuana has now established itself as one of the top medical tourism destinations in the country. You will find top-quality, modern facilities catering to international patients and equipped with the latest technologies, staffed with highly-skilled clinicians. English is spoken widely, so no need to worry about having to speak Spanish.


How Do I Find a Reliable Clinic for my Tummy Tuck?

For any kind of surgery, research beforehand is key. The standard of private medical care for tourists is generally good throughout Mexico, but it always pays to do your own due diligence.

Is a Tummy Tuck Suitable for Medical Tourists?

Yes – but the days following the procedure should be earmarked for time spent recovering. So, if you are going for a vacation, you should get all your fun activities out of the way before the surgery.

You should expect some bruising and soreness after the surgery , but that doesn’t mean you’ll be completely bedridden for the remainder of your trip. In fact, getting up and doing some light movement actually reduces swelling and speeds your recovery . Plan to be in the country for at least five days after your surgery, depending upon your surgeon’s advice.
