Why Undergo Facial Rejuvenation Treatment in Tijuana?

Tijuana is one of Mexico’s leading destinations for all things cosmetic. A 20-minute drive from the US border and with two international airports within easy reach, it is particularly convenient for North Americans who can either drive across from Southern California or fly in from further afield. 

As well as great accessibility, surgery and other non-invasive beauty treatments are far less expensive in Tijuana. Many patients are able to save up to 70% on the price of their treatment compared to having it done back in the US. 

The good news is you need not make compromises when it comes to the quality of care in Tijuana. Medical training in Mexico is rigorous, with many surgeons having undertaken some of their training overseas. 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) or the American Academy of Facial, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS).

Advice on Finding a Reputable Clinic

There are always risks involved in any type of surgery, even at home. When traveling abroad it's doubly important 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 all of the providers you see on our site, listing their qualifications and memberships on our site for all to see. We conduct onsite visits to clinics and hospitals in Tijuana, providing high definition photos and virtual video tours. We also gather and authenticate patient reviews that we post to our site.

How Long Does Facial Rejuvenation Treatment Take and What’s Involved?

Facial rejuvenation offers patients the chance to combine a number of treatments to rejuvenate their look. This can include different surgical procedures, from a full facelift to one of the specific area treatments, such as eyelid surgery, as well as skin treatments to enhance texture, such as dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing.

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 six months for your surgery to heal before the other treatments can be carried out. This means you may need to make more than one trip to Tijuana. 

What Is the Recovery Time for Facial Rejuvenation?

Any surgery will take several weeks to heal as swelling and bruising gradually subside; with some, such as a full facelift, this period may take much longer. 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 six weeks and although after a couple of months you may look healed, it may take up to six 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, allowing you to make big savings on the $20,000 price tag for the same treatment in the United States.
