Vaginoplasty in Tijuana

The Ultimate Guide to Vaginoplasty in Tijuana

Do you need to repair or tighten up your vagina? You can find affordable surgeons for a vaginoplasty in Tijuana, and save yourself around 50% compared to what you’d pay at home.

Childbirth, as well as the ageing process, may make the vaginal muscles looser. Childbirth may also lead to tears or other damage in the vaginal walls. The vaginoplasty procedure can help to repair damage, as well as tightening muscles which will help with sexual pleasure, and with self-confidence.

Vaginoplasty can be done as a stand-alone procedure, but is sometimes also done as part of a vaginal rejuvenation procedure, in combination with other surgery, including labiaplasty.

Why have vaginoplasty in Tijuana?

Tijuana is becoming a leading destination for medical tourists, and particularly for North Americans who find it a convenient and accessible place to come to. Not everyone wants, or has the option, of taking a lot of time off work to go on a surgical holiday, and Border locations, such as Tijuana, still give patients the option of traveling to another country for cost-effective treatments, but without having to travel long distances. For residents in the Southern States, traveling to Mexico is just as easy as going to the next state.

North Americans have been coming to Tijuana for a long time, and it stands to reason that medical, dental, health and cosmetic care are just more services that Mexico can offer at better prices. The prices are less not because the quality is inferior to the services north of the Border, but because the cost-of-living is that much lower. Rents, wages, cost of supplies – all of these are significantly lower in Mexico than in the US – and so the savings are passed on to you.

While up until relatively recently, people may look at you with trepidation if you said you were going to Mexico for surgery, nowadays people are much more open to it. In part, this is because Mexico has cleaned up its act. It isn’t the Wild West of old where dusty backstreet operators dispensed treatments without a proper licence. The world is a much smaller place and globalization means that good hygiene standards and practices are adopted and accepted globally.

There are clinics and doctors in Mexico, providing you choose wisely, who have the same professional memberships and qualifications as doctors in the US, and who place just as much importance on patient satisfaction as any of their counterparts over the Border. The key is to choose a reliable clinic and surgeon, whose credentials stack up. You should do a little background research, but by booking through Medical Departures you are assured that we have already done background research – the results of which are included in our listings.

What does the vaginoplasty procedure involve?

The procedure takes between 1 and 2 hours, and is usually done with a general anesthetic. Excess vaginal lining is removed and the muscles and soft tissues tightened with stitches. The stitches are dissolvable so the patient doesn’t have to come back to have them removed.

What is the recovery time after a vaginoplasty?

The genital area is remarkably resilient to pain and heals fairly quickly. You will experience a little discomfort, but it shouldn’t be particularly painful. You won’t be allowed to have a bath until the stitches have dissolved, but showering will be alright after 48 hours. You will need to take things gently, with no vigorous exercise or strenuous activity (including sex) for 6 weeks.

What is the cost of vaginoplasty in Tijuana compared to the United States and Canada?

Vaginoplasty costs around 50% less in Tijuana than it does in the United States.
