The Ultimate Guide to Facial Rejuvenation in Tijuana

Discover affordable surgical and non-surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation in Tijuana. Tailor-make cosmetic procedures to suit you, and change or enhance those bothersome areas to make you look younger or better.

Tijuana is one of Mexico’s leading destinations for all things cosmetic. Near the US border and with two international airports within easy reach it is convenient for North Americans and visitors from further afield. Facial rejuvenation offers patients the chance to combine a number of treatments to rejuvenate their look. This can include surgery, from a full facelift to one of the specific area treatments, such as eyelid surgery, and skin treatments to enhance texture, such as dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing.

Why get facial rejuvenation in Tijuana?

Tijuana receives many patients from north of the US border. It can’t be beaten for accessibility – and the prices are often at least 50% lower than they are at home. Obviously, should not be your sole consideration for traveling anywhere for surgery – you need to weigh up the pros and cons and to do some research to find a surgeon and facilities that you can trust. Surgery is certainly far less expensive in Tijuana but there’s no need to cut corners on the quality, and no matter where you go you can get good and bad medical care anywhere, not just in Tijuana.

Medical training in Mexico differs slightly from in the United States, as indeed medical training does from country to country. This doesn’t make it any worse anywhere else, and in all likelihood in these days of globalization there is little difference. What you should look out for is Board certified surgeons. Mexico has its own board, and it isn’t unusual to find American Board Certified Surgeons in Tijuana too. You can also look for doctors recognized by international professional organizations, such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).

There are always risks involved in any type of surgery, even at home. What you need to do when traveling abroad is to ameliorate your risk. Choose reputable surgeons whose qualifications and memberships to professional organizations can be verified. Don’t be afraid to ask questions – no matter how trivial they seem – any good facility or doctor will be more than happy to put your mind at ease.

At Medical Departures we run background-checks on our providers, listing their qualifications and memberships on our site for all to see. We do onsite visits to clinics and hospitals, providing high definition photos and virtual video tours. We also gather real patient testimonials, which we also publish.

The important thing to remember is you can have a very successful outcome for your facial rejuvenation in Tijuana, as long as you spend a little time doing the research beforehand.

How long does facial rejuvenation take and what’s involved?

Facial rejuvenation is as individual as you are, and no two treatments are necessarily the same. In consultation with your surgeon, the appropriate surgical and non-surgical enhancements to help you achieve your desires will be specifically tailored to your needs. It may well be that if you have had facial surgery and are planning on one or more non-surgical treatments too, that you will have to wait for around 6 months for your surgery to heal before the other treatments can be carried out. This means you may need to make several trips.

What is the recovery time for facial rejuvenation?

Any surgery will take several weeks to heal from swelling and bruising, with some, such as a full facelift, taking longer. Obviously, for the first few days after surgery you will be in discomfort and will need to take pain medication. Vigorous activities will have to be avoided for 6 weeks and although after a couple of months you may look healed, it may take up to 6 months to be completely healed – inside and out.

Other non-surgical treatments take far less time to recover from, from a day or two to a few weeks.

What is the cost of facial rejuvenation in Tijuana compared to the US and Canada?

Facial rejuvenation in Tijuana costs, on average, around $10,000, making big savings on the $20,000 it costs in the United States.
