Why should I get liposuction in Tijuana?

Americans and Canadians are drawn to Tijuana for cosmetic procedures because it is convenient and accessible – plus the costs are substantially cheaper than they’d pay at home.

Tijuana’s close proximity to the US-Mexico Border means that it has always attracted North Americans. The cost of living is considerably less expensive here and so a day shopping or a night out can save a pretty penny or two.

Medical tourism is a growth area throughout Mexico, and Tijuana has been quick to take advantage of this. Offering safe, clean and hygienic facilities, as well as skilled surgeons, a mere stone’s throw away from the Border. Given that prices are at least 50% lower for liposuction in Tijuana then it’s little wonder that so many North Americans are taking advantage.

As with any medical procedure, we always maintain you should do a little homework yourself. Although there are great clinics and well-qualified doctors, not all things are equal. You want to ensure you get the best by going to a facility that has decent credentials, and this is where Medical Departures helps.

We run background checks on all the clinics and doctors we partner with. This includes legal/criminal records, qualifications and professional memberships. We list these on our website with real patient reviews, high definition clinic photos, virtual video tours and other useful information. This helps you to get an overall picture and make an informed decision on what will work for you.

What’s involved in a liposuction procedure and how long does it take?

Liposuction typically takes around 45 minutes per site, but if you are being treated across multiple sites it may take several hours.

There are some different techniques for dissolving the fat in your body. In tumescent liposuction a saline solution is injected through small incisions and used to liquefy the fat. Ultrasound liposuction also liquefies fat but with ultrasound waves. In both instances, the fat is then removed with a suction device which is inserted into the body through a small incision. Once the procedure is complete the incision(s) are stitched closed.

What is the recovery time for liposuction?

After surgery you may be wearing a compression garment. You may feel bruised and tender and fluid may leak from your wounds for a few days. Swelling and bruising is normal, and will be at its worst between 7 – 10 days, after which it will start to decrease. You will gradually be able to resume your normal activities, but will need to avoid anything too strenuous or vigorous for 6 weeks.
