Facial Liposuction in Mexico City

The Ultimate Guide to Facial Liposuction in Mexico City

Last fact-checked: 5 November 2020

For men and women wanting to enhance their appearance with a more sculpted chin, jawline or cheeks, facial liposuction in Mexico City could give you the look you desire for less than half the price you would expect to pay back home.

Learn more about this increasingly popular procedure and find a reputable surgeon in the Mexican capital with Medical Departures. 

What is Facial Liposuction?

Facial liposuction can help to effectively tone fatty deposits located along the chin, jawline, neck, or cheeks. Often, diet and exercise are not enough to tone these areas—even when you have seen good results on the rest of your body. 

Liposuction works by removing localized fat cells through a thin cannula. In the past, this minimally invasive technique was generally used to contour other areas of the body, such as the thighs. Today, liposuction is now commonly used to tone specific areas of the face.

To be considered a good candidate for facial liposuction, you should be in good health, have realistic expectations, and have good skin elasticity. It is important to understand that liposuction of any type is not a weight loss surgery. 

Who Can Receive Facial Liposuction?

Facial liposuction is an appropriate treatment for both men and women. While this procedure is often effective for younger patients, it is important to be aware that older patients may also require additional procedures, such as a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or rhinoplasty to achieve their individual goals.

In some cases, facial liposuction may also be performed with chin or cheek implants to create a more defined look.

Why Receive Facial Liposuction in Mexico City?

Mexico City offers a number of benefits for men and women who are considering having facial liposuction performed. Along with being able to enjoy a relaxing Mexican getaway, you will also be able to save a substantial amount of money on the cost of your procedure. Patients are often surprised to discover they can save at between 50% and 70% on the cost of liposuction by traveling to Mexico City.

The capital city of Mexico also offers a number of attractions, including historical sites and museums. Post-surgery, you can relax for a few days in an affordable, comfortable hotel before heading back home.

Prior to traveling to Mexico City, you should research available clinics. Mexico has many excellent healthcare facilities. At Medical Departures, we can assist you with researching clinics by providing a list of thoroughly researched surgeons and facilities. We perform civil and criminal background checks as well as confirm qualifications and professional memberships, such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. We also interview patients and collect patient testimonials to gain an idea of how things are handled at that facility.

How Long Does Facial Liposuction Take and What Is the Recovery Like?

Before your procedure, you will meet with your surgeon to discuss your medical history, reasons for having facial liposuction and desired goals.

The procedure is usually carried out using local anesthetic to numb the area, although general anesthetic is also an option. 

After injecting a saline solution, a numbing anesthetic, and medicine to decrease bleeding, the surgeon will use special equipment known as a cannula to vacuum out the fat cells. A small incision will be made in the targeted areas and the tube inserted into this area. A suction syringe or pump will then be attached to the tube to remove excess fat cells.

This procedure could take between one and three hours to complete. The length of time required to perform the procedure will be determined by the number of fatty deposits to be removed. Most patients are able to have this procedure performed on an outpatient basis.

Following the operation:

  • You may be advised to wear a dressing over the incisions for the first few days after your treatment.
  • While the recovery time for facial liposuction is usually quite fast, you may find it necessary to rest for the first day.
  • Oral painkillers can be used to alleviate any discomfort you may experience.
  • Cold compresses may help with any swelling you experience.
  • Patients are usually able to return to their normal activities within a few days.
  • Bruising is common following this procedure, but should disappear within the next two weeks.

Can the Fat Cells Return?

The results of facial liposuction are usually permanent, as adults do not create many new fat cells after they go through puberty. When you gain weight, the fat cells you already have been expanded.

If you do gain weight after having this procedure, the new weight will be spread out through the remaining fat cells; this often results in fat accumulating in new areas that have not been treated with liposuction. 

What Is the Cost of Facial Liposuction in Mexico City Compared to the U.S. and Canada?

The average cost for liposuction in Mexico City is about $2,500 (AUD $3,389, EUR €2,221, GBP £1,753) compared to $3,500 in the United States (AUD $4,849, EUR €3,119, GBP £2,412).
