Facelift in Tijuana

The Ultimate Guide to Facelift in Tijuana

Last fact-checked: 5 October 2020

Discover how much you can save on your facelift in Tijuana when booking with Medical Departures. Our quality checked surgeons provide a range of full and partial facelift procedures to rejuvenate your face and give you that youthful look again.

Also known as rhytidectomy, this kind of cosmetic surgery has moved on considerably with medical advances and innovations. In fact, you may not want or even need a complete facelift to achieve your desired result; sometimes, there may be a particular area you would like to improve, such as your lower face, in which case you may want to consider a lower facelift rather than a full facelift.

Why Should I Get a Facelift in Tijuana?

The fact that Tijuana is close to the US border makes it a popular destination anyway for Americans and Canadians. More recently, it has established itself as a top location for cosmetic surgery; not only are the surgeons English-speaking and possess the relevant expertise but not having too far to travel is a bonus for many North Americans.

Many surgeons in Tijuana have studied in America, and also have US Board memberships as well as Mexican.

Medical tourism services in Tijuana are on the increase, in part fuelled by their popularity. For patients from north of the Border, Tijuana makes a convenient, reasonably accessible location for surgery. The prices, of course, make the trip well worthwhile, even for patients traveling from much further afield, like Europe.

Finding a Rhytidectomy Specialist in Tijuana

Booking an appointment in Tijuana for facelift surgery requires a good deal of research, as it would for any plastic surgery.

Medical Departures helps with this process as we give you all the information you need about surgeons’ qualifications, their professional memberships and affiliate memberships all on one easy-to-use site.

You can compare prices, read real patient reviews and view clinic photos to help you make a decision – before booking an appointment online. We give you access to quality-checked surgeons and clinics who we have background-checked already, so you can book with confidence.

How Long Does a Facelift Take?

The time can vary enormously, depending on the extent of the work needed. A mini-lift may be completed in less than two hours, whereas a full facelift and another procedure, such as a neck lift, may take six or more.

What Is the Recovery Time for a Facelift?

Following surgery, it should be noted that:

  • Your face will feel tight and sore for the first few days following surgery.
  • You can take painkillers as prescribed to help with the discomfort.
  • Bruising and swelling is to be expected and it may take some weeks before this subsides enough for you to return to work, although a mini-lift may only take around a week.
  • Do consult with your surgeon as to how long you will need to stay in Tijuana; this will be dependent on a number of factors, including whether you are flying or driving back home.

How Much Can I Save on My Facelifts in Tijuana Compared to the United States and Canada?
