Eye bag removal in Mexico will give your face a new lease of life. Eye bags make you look tired, old and in some cases grumpy – not a look most of us want to cultivate. The cost may be just too expensive at home, but at 70% less in Mexico it might be something you might want to consider.
Also known as blepharoplasty, eye bags may be caused by a number of factors, including age, genetics, too much exposure to the sun and smoking. They occur when the muscle tone and skin around the eyes lose their elasticity, causing loose skin on the upper lids and creases on the lower. In some cases it may result in problems with your vision.
Americans and Canadians have been traveling to Mexico for cheaper health and dental care for a long time, but more recently, as medical tourism has taken off, people are traveling here from much further afield.
It’s not hard to understand why. They make incredible savings on the costs in Mexico, but this doesn’t mean the quality is any less. Quite the contrary – the standard of care here is comparable to any of the first-world countries that people travel from – and many patients have stated that it actually exceeds the care they get at home. Mexico offers excellence as well as value for money.
It is still imperative that anyone considering any form of surgery embarks on some thorough research. Find out about your problem, what procedures can be used to fix it, and then use the internet to discover what you can about prospective doctors and clinics.
Medical Departures take this aspect very seriously, doing legal and criminal background checks, as well as confirming qualifications, experience and professional memberships of our doctors. Alongside real patient reviews, high definition photos and virtual tours of clinics we present an overview of each clinic on our site, so our patients can get an honest appraisal of the facilities on offer.
The eye bag removal procedure usually takes between 1 and 3 hours to complete, depending on whether you are having just the upper, just the lower or both lids attended to.
Immediately after surgery your eyes and the surrounding areas may be bruised and swollen and you may have steri strips applied over the stitches. You will need to be careful and not do too much for at least 5 days after surgery, and you should be able to return to light work after a week, although you may still have swelling and bruising. Strenuous activities, including sports, should be avoided for 3 weeks, as well as anything which raised blood pressure, including lifting and bending.
Depending on whether you are having upper, lower or both eyelids done, Eye Bag Removal in Mexico costs on average $2,000 - $4,000 compared to $5,000 - $8,000 in the United States.
