Turn back the clock with a breast lift in Tijuana. Medical tourists, especially those based in the Southern US States, are flocking to this Mexican border city to undergo more affordable cosmetic surgery for thousands less than back home.
Find out how you can do it - without compromising your health - with Medical Departures.
Breast surgeries, which encompass augmentations (implants), lifts and reductions, are among the most common cosmetic procedures. Aging, pregnancy and weight loss all have an effect on breast tissue, causing once-pert breasts to sag, so a simple lift can reposition them higher up so you regain that youthful profile.
It’s worth noting that breast lifts do not alter the size of your breasts, and will need to be performed in conjunction with either a breast enlargement or breast reduction if you want to go up or down in size.
The medical tourism sector has grown considerably in Mexico over the past few years, with metropolitan areas, such as Tijuana, leading the way.
Not only has there been considerable investment in private healthcare facilities for medical tourists, but also in the infrastructure, such as dedicated medical tourist lanes at the border crossings, saving valuable hours queuing to get across.
Tijuana sees thousands of medical travelers from North America enter every day, with our clients booking through our site reporting their treatment is comparable to what they have received at home – and sometimes even better.
The primary reason for traveling abroad for medical care may still be the cost – savings can amount to thousands of dollars – but savvy patients know that if they do their research there is nothing to lose by traveling overseas and everything to gain.
This is the key point when having cosmetic surgery anywhere, let alone overseas. Cosmetic surgery is part science, part art and anyone considering it should always find recommendations about surgeons and hospitals from patients who have had the surgery. Admittedly, this is easier to do if you are having it at home and somewhat less if you are traveling. You can do a little research yourself, even if it's finding out about professional organizations your surgeon belongs to.
Medical Departures makes the process a whole lot easier by garnering information from various sources that can, taken together, provide an excellent assessment as to quality. Our background checks include:
All of this information is freely available under each listing on our website, along with high-definition clinic photos and virtual video tours to give patients as complete a picture as possible to allow them to make their own informed choices.
If you’re thinking of a breast lift in Tijuana, do your homework to give yourself the best chance of having a successful and happy trip.
Typically, breast lift surgery lasts for one to three hours, and most cases are done as an out-patient basis so they don’t require an overnight hospital stay.
After surgery, you will be stiff and uncomfortable, but you will be encouraged to move gently and to refrain from over-stretching, and lifting. Normal everyday activities should be fine after two weeks, but heavy lifting and strenuous exercise should be avoided for six weeks.
In Tijuana, breast lifts cost around $3,000, whereas in the United States they are around $5,200.
