Liposuction in Mexico City

The Ultimate Guide to Liposuction in Mexico City

Last fact-checked: 16 January 2020

Considering undergoing liposuction in Mexico City? Book with Medical Departures to ensure you receive treatment at a verified, quality-checked clinic and take advantage of our best price guarantee. 

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that removes unwanted body fat. It generally targets areas of the body where fat usually tends to collect, such as the thighs, buttocks, hips and tummy. While liposuction does permanently remove fat cells, it does not prevent you from putting on more weight afterward (meaning that the effects of liposuction are effectively reversed if you put on more weight). 

Why Should I Undergo Liposuction in Mexico City?

The main reasons to have liposuction in Mexico City are:

Cost: The potential to save thousands of dollars compared to prices back home is always going to be the main draw as to why patients visit Mexico City for healthcare. With liposuction, you’ll find prices that are at least 60% lower than at home at our partner clinics. 

Convenience: For those based in the US and Canada, most parts of Mexico are relatively easy to reach, and the capital obviously is no exception. Without the hassle and expense of a long haul flight, patients from all over North America can get here often in just a few hours. 

Quality: Mexico is home to a number of Joint Commission International (JCI) accredited hospitals and every clinic we work with follow strict ISO protocols. The healthcare system in Mexico has been described as excellent, being rates as one of the top six in the world by the 2019 Global Retirement Index published by InternationalLiving.com.

Why Book with Medical Departures?

We choose our partner clinics carefully by conducting onsite visits, verifying qualifications and professional memberships and publishing real patient reviews on our site. If these don’t stack up, then we simply don’t list.

What Are the Different Types of Liposuction and How Long Does the Procedure Take?

There are generally two different liposuction techniques which may be used, namely:

  • Tumescent liposuction: anesthetic and drugs are mixed with a saline solution before being injected into fat cells via small incisions. 

  • Ultrasound liposuction: this technique liquefies fat cells with ultrasound before removal. A suction device removes the fat from the body.

The procedure can take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the area that is to be treated. An overnight stay is not usually needed, but if you have been given general anesthesia, then you are required to stay the night for observation.

The administration of anesthesia also may differ. According to what works best for you, your surgeon (or anesthetist) will recommend local anesthesia, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.

Before the procedure, your doctor will ask you to refrain from consuming certain substances, which can include aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs, contraceptive pills, and smoking. The consumption of these substances has to be stopped two to three weeks before surgery. If you are anemic, your doctor will also ask you to take iron supplements.

What Is the Recovery Time and Side Effects?

After the surgery, you will have some bruising around the area(s) that was/were treated and you also experience some numbness. The bruising can last up to six months, but will start to subside after a week or two. Stitches should be removed a week after the surgery. You will be given a support garment to wear after your stitches are removed and have to wear this for at least three to four weeks.

You’ll be able to get back to most normal activities within a week if you have a relatively small area treated and a little longer if you’ve had a larger operation. The results of the procedure will take time to become apparent, sometimes even taking six months for the area to settle down. You can experience swelling, swollen ankles, scars and inflammation of the treated area as some of the side effects of the procedure.

Who Can Have Liposuction?

If you are an adult with excess fat that you cannot lose with regular diet and exercise, then liposuction is a very viable option for you. Liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment for obese patients. 

There are certain prerequisites for having liposuction, which include:

  • Adults who are within 30% of their ideal weight

  • Those who have firm, elastic skin

  • Individuals who do not have severe health impairments or life-threatening diseases

How Much Can I Save on Liposuction Mexico City Compared to the US and Canada?

Liposuction in Mexico City costs around $2,500 (CAN $3,400, UK £1,700, EUR €2,200, AUS $3,400).

In comparison, the same procedure is around the $6,000 mark in the United States (CAN $8,300, UK 4,100, EUR €5,700, AUS $8,400).
