Why Have a Mommy Makeover in Cancun?

Cancun is a great location for a holiday–you can take advantage of some much-needed pre-surgery relaxation or post-op recovery. It proves more popular with North Americans every year and is becoming one of Mexico's most important destinations for patients seeking affordable cosmetic surgery options.

Cancun offers all the tourist facilities and services you require in terms of accommodation and infrastructure, also boasting excellent medical facilities committed to clinical excellence and great customer service. Thousands of medical tourists now visit Cancun every year, realizing they can receive just as high-quality care here as they can at home, but at a fraction of the price.

Cancun is an upmarket destination, including medical facilities aimed at medical tourists. The best hospitals and clinics are state-of-the-art, equipped with the latest technologies, and surgeons are certified and highly-skilled. Many opt for additional training north of the Border and are often members of American medical boards, as well as international surgical organizations, which help offer peace-of-mind for overseas patients.

We take our own background checks on every clinic and doctor listed on our site very seriously; if they're not up to our standards, you won't see their name on Medical Departures. This includes:

  • Verifying qualifications and professional memberships
  • Researching legal/criminal records.
  • Collating and authenticating patient reviews to publish on our website
  • Visiting clinics personally and taking photos (also published on our site).

Along with prices and other useful information, you can search our listings and make up your own mind regarding which clinic might be best for you. Get started now by taking a look at these top clinics in Cancun for your Mommy Makeover:

What’s Involved in a Mommy Makeover? How Long Is the Downtime?

Mommy Makeover is tailor-made for each patient, so what’s involved will vary. Treatment can include but is not limited to:

  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Breast lift, breast enlargement, (implants) or breast reduction
  • Butt lift (implants or fat transfer)

Because you are having a number of procedures, you will feel sore and uncomfortable for a week or so after surgery, until the bruising and swelling has subsided.

Some people wonder why anyone would put themselves through this, but for others, having all the procedures performed at once (or in some cases, over a couple of days) means only one visit to the hospital and only one period of downtime. This, for a busy Mom, can be a huge advantage.

It’s likely to be a number of weeks before you are feeling back to your old self; by then you should be able to return to your routine tasks without discomfort. You will be advised to refrain from vigorous exercise or strenuous activities for up to six weeks, and it could be up to a year before your body heals completely–on the inside as well as the outside.

What Is the Cost of a Mommy Makeover in Cancun Compared to the United States?

A Mommy Makeover in Cancun costs on average $8,000 compared to $15-20,000 in the United States. Patients heading to Mexico generally tend to save at least 50% on individual procedures, too.
