Popular vaginal rejuvenation procedures include Labiaplasty. In Tijuana the procedure costs at least 50% less for most overseas patients - making it a go-to destination, especially for North Americans.
Its position on the US-Mexico border is particularly enticing for Americans and Canadians. International airports in nearby San Diego, as well as Tijuana, mean that it is easy to get to – and also if you live in the southern States driving to the Border is certainly an option.
Labiaplasty procedures have increased considerably in the last few years, and while it is becoming more commonplace, it may well be that women who have the procedure done want to be discrete about it. Traveling to Tijuana will offer more privacy that their local hospital, where bumping into someone they know is more likely.
The procedure can be performed as an out-patient, so no overnight hospital stay is required – which could be another bonus for patients who would prefer to be back at home as soon as they can.
Tijuana is proving to be a success story in terms of attracting medical tourists. It offers modern clinics equipped with advanced technologies, English-speaking surgeons, many who are trained in the United States and who have verifiable credentials with memberships of US or international professional organizations.
The labiaplasty procedure typically takes between 1 and 2 hours, and can be carried out under a local anesthetic or a general. Excess skin and unwanted tissue is removed from the inner, outer or both vaginal lips with either a scalpel or a laser. The remaining tissue is stitched nearly with dissolvable stitches.
After surgery you are likely to experience a little discomfort and stinging, and you may notice some discoloration to the area, which will subside in the following weeks.
You should get up and about as soon as you can after the procedure, and although it may feel uncomfortable, walking around does help the healing process by reducing swelling.
Stitches will dissolve in around a week and you won’t be able to have a bath until then, although showering is usually permitted after 48 hours.
Recovery time is fairly quick, with most people returning to work after a week, when normal, everyday activities should be fine. Swimming, sex and vigorous exercise should be avoided for 6 weeks.
The cost of labiaplasty in Tijuana is around 50% less compared to in the United States.
