Facelift in Cancun

The Ultimate Guide to Facelift in Cancun

Last fact-checked: 9 October 2020

Halt the effects of aging with a facelift in Cancun. Book your surgery through Medical Departures to ensure you're seen to by an experienced specialist without paying more than you should. 

Is A Facelift for Me?

Our faces tell a story: stresses and lifestyle factors can all be etched into our skin, contributing to deepening lines, drooping mouths and sagging jawlines. Genetics also plays a part—some people just seem to age more gracefully than others and it can be disheartening to see a reflection in the mirror that doesn’t resemble how you feel inside.

A facelift is not necessarily for everyone, and certainly the younger you are you will want to consider options more suitable for your age. The best candidates tend to be between 40 and 60, whose faces and necks have begun to sag, but who still have some elasticity in their skin. Facelifts can be done successfully on people in their 70’s and beyond.

Why Should I Undergo a Facelift in Cancun?

One of the major reasons you may want to consider Cancun for a facelift is the price. It isn’t unusual to save as much as two-thirds on the fees normally charged in the US.

Medical tourism throughout Mexico is increasing as more people not just from the United States and Canada, but from across the world, are looking for quality healthcare that they can afford. Investment is key to successful medical tourism and many of the popular facilities have invested heavily to offer patients exceptional quality as well as expertise they can rely on. If they didn’t, patients would soon stop coming.

Internationally-accredited hospitals and surgeons who have trained overseas are some of the positives in traveling to Cancun for surgery. You're also likely to find surgeons are members of international professional organizations, such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons

Cancun is also a big draw thanks to its status as a world-renowned holiday destination; people are familiar with its location, amenities and services. For the ultimate in relaxation in an affordable tropical setting, Cancun is hard to beat.

Preparing for Your Trip—How Should I Book?

When considering surgery abroad, you should spend some time conducting your own research especially if you are considering a facelift. Check out other patient testimonials and find out as much as you can about your surgeon: How many facelifts have they performed? What are their qualifications and experience? What professional organizations are they a member of?

Although no medical procedure can ever be guaranteed completely, making sure all the boxes are ticked in terms of this basic information goes a long way in giving you peace of mind, which is why Medical Departures confirms these in our background checks, and why it is available for free on our listings.

Check out clinic photos (including before and after comparisons), maps, surgeon profiles, prices and more at these top clinics in Cancun that offer facelifts:

What Does the Procedure for a Facelift Entail?

The surgery can last anywhere between one and six hours, depending on how extensive the work; a mini-lift can be completed in under two hours.

Facelifts are as individual as people and there is no one way of achieving success. Cosmetic surgeons tailor procedures depending on what their patients need. Common facelift procedures may include: 

What Is the Recovery Time Following a Facelift?

After surgery, your face will feel swollen and bruised and this tends to move downwards to the neck as it starts to subside. Your face may feel tight and there may be some numbness. You should probably keep your head elevated for the first few days after surgery, sleeping in an upright position bolstered by pillows. If you have drainage tubes these will be removed after a couple of days.

You will need to take things slowly, avoiding bending and lifting as well as saunas for at least two weeks. Many people return to work after a couple of weeks. Scarring should be easily disguised and any residual bruising should be able to be camouflaged with make-up.

It will be at least six weeks before you can resume vigorous activities and six months or so before you feel completely healed and your face has settled.

How Much Can I Save on a Facelift in Cancun Compared to the United States?

This obviously depends on the extent of your surgery. A full facelift in Cancun is around $4,000 (GBP £2,800; AUD $5,700; €3,600) compared to $12,000 in the United States (UK £8,300; AUS $17,000, EUR €11,000). 

[Please note: these prices are approximate estimates based on international data, calculated at the time of writing.]
