Why Have a Mommy Makeover in Cancun?

Cancun is a great location for a holiday – you can take advantage of some much-needed pre or post-surgery relaxation. It proves popular with North Americans year on year and is becoming increasingly more so for those who are looking for lower-priced cosmetic surgery.

It has all the tourist facilities and services you require in terms of accommodation and infrastructure, but it also has medical facilities that are certainly up-to-the-mark, and medical tourists are realizing they can get just as good quality care here as they can at home, but at a fraction of the price.

Cancun is an upmarket location, and medical facilities aimed at medical tourists can often be termed as such. Hospitals and clinics are often state-of-the-art, equipped with the latest technologies and surgeons are highly-skilled and qualified. Many choose to do some training north of the border and are often members of American medical boards, as well as international surgical boards, which should offer peace-of-mind for many overseas patients, knowing that the same rigorous standards are applied to Mexican surgeons as American surgeons.

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

  • Verifying qualifications and professional memberships
  • Looking into legal/criminal records.
  • Collating patient reviews to publish on our website
  • Visiting clinics personally and taking photos which are also published on our site.

Along with prices and other useful information, you can search our listings and make your own mind up on what clinic is 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 and How Long Is the Downtime?

A mommy makeover is tailor-made for every patient, so what’s involved will vary. Treatment can include but is not limited to:

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

The thing to remember is that 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, and so you must be prepared for this beforehand. Some people wonder why anyone would put themselves through this, but for others, having all the procedures done at once (or over a couple of dates) means only one visit to the hospital, and only one downtime – which for busy Mom’s, could be a huge consideration.

It’s likely to be a number of weeks before you are feeling back to your old self, but after that, you should be able to do your routine everyday tasks without discomfort. You will be advised to refrain from vigorous exercise or strenuous activities for 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.
