Did you know you could save at least 50% on Eye Bag Removal in Tijuana? This simple procedure is effective for getting rid of the droopy, baggy skin around the eyes, which make you look old, grumpy and worn-out.
You can probably have both the upper and lower lids done in Tijuana – for the same price as just the upper or the lower in the USA.
Some things that cause eye bags we are powerless to do anything about – age and genetics, but some lifestyle choices – sun exposure or smoking, may also cause or exacerbate them. Collagen that gives our skin its elasticity reduces as we age, and with certain lifestyle choices. This causes the skin to form fine lines, leading to wrinkles, then sagging skin – and voila – eye bags. In extreme cases the bags may cause vision problems.
This is the number one reason why medical tourism is so popular. Why pay double at home when you can have just as good a job done elsewhere?
Tijuana’s close proximity to the US-Mexico border makes it a convenient location for medical and surgical procedures. Savvy medical professionals have taken advantage of this by offering their services to the international communities. The services don’t cost any less because the expertise is not as good – on the contrary, medical education here is on a par with the US. It costs less because the cost of living here is substantially lower, so that means overheads such as premises rent, staffing costs, equipment and everything else that must be included in your surgeon’s fees at home is also lower.
Facilities that treat international patients are contemporary, modern and equipped with the latest technologies, just as they are at home. Patients simply wouldn’t come if they were inferior.
International standards and procedures are followed for the safety of patients and to prevent transmission of diseases and infection.
Medical Departures can vouch for the quality of its providers. We do onsite visits as well as performing background checks into doctor qualifications, professional registrations and international memberships, which we list on our website with real patient review, virtual video tours and clinic photos. Patients can choose with confidence, because if we’re not happy with a provider, we don’t list them on our website.
It depends on whether you have the procedure to the upper, lower or both lids, but on average, the surgery takes 1 – 3 hours.
A local anesthetic, or light sedation is usually administered before the procedure begins. For lower lid surgery, an incision is made inside the lid, which leaves no visible scar, and for upper lid surgery, an incision is made in one of the natural creases of the lid. Excess fat is removed through the incision, the loose skin trimmed away and the remainder pulled tight and stitched in place.
Your eyes and the surrounding areas are likely to be swollen, bruised and sore for several days after the surgery, and you will need to take it easy. If you feel well enough you can go back to work after a week, but you may still have swelling and bruising. Avoid anything that raises blood pressure and vigorous activity, including sports, lifting and bending for at least 3 weeks.
