Liposuction in Tijuana

The Ultimate Guide to Liposuction in Tijuana

Last fact-checked: 12 February 2020

Get rid of stubborn pockets of fat at an affordable price with liposuction in Tijuana. Medical Departures partners with quality-checked clinics and you can use our site to book an appointment in a matter of minutes—after you’ve made sure liposuction is right for you.  

Why Liposuction?

Sometimes, diet and exercise alone can only get you so far. Liposuction helps you achieve a slimmer look by removing fat from almost anywhere, including hips, buttocks, thighs, tummy, back, arms and even the face. 

It should be noted, however, that liposuction is not weight loss a solution for obese patients who have the potential to lose weight by restricting calories. 

Why Should I Consider Undergoing Liposuction in Tijuana?

Americans and Canadians are drawn to Tijuana for cosmetic procedures because it is convenient, has great medical facilities and the costs are substantially lower than back 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 Mexicoand Tijuana has been quick to take advantage of this. The city offers safe, clean and hygienic facilities, as well as skilled surgeons who ply their trade a mere stone’s throw away from the border. 

Given that prices are at least 50% lower for liposuction in Tijuana, it’s little wonder that so more and more North Americans are visiting for health and cosmetic purposes every year.

Booking Liposuction in Tijuana with Medical Departures

As with any medical procedure, we always maintain you should do a little homework yourself. Although there are great clinics and well-qualified doctors, this isn’t a universal rule. You want to ensure you get the best by going to a facility that has decent credentials, and this is where Medical Departures can help.

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.

Get started with these top clinics that perform liposuction on international patients visiting Tijuana:

What Does Liposuction Normally Entail 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.

Different techniques can be used to dissolve the fat in your body. Most commonly:

  • Tumescent liposuction involves a saline solution being injected through small incisions and used to liquefy the fat. 

  • Ultrasound liposuction also liquefies fat but with ultrasound waves emitted from a specialist device. 

In both instances, the fat is then removed with a suction device that 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 the surgery, you may be given a compression garment to wear to expedite recovery and improve results. You may feel bruised and tender and fluid may leak from your wounds for a few days. Swelling and bruising are normal and will be at its worst between seven to ten 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 around six weeks.

How Much Can I Save on Liposuction in Tijuana Compared to the United States?

The average cost of liposuction in Tijuana is around $2,000 (CAD $2,500; £1,300 GBP, €1,800, AUD $2,500) per area. 

In comparison, you can expect to pay at least three times that in the United States with many clinics charging $6,000 (CAD $7,300; £3,800 GBP, €3,000, AUD $7,500). [Please note: these prices are approximate estimates based on international data, calculated at the time of writing.]
