Find out about facial liposuction in Tijuana with Medical Departures. You can create a younger-looking, more defined face without undergoing a full facelift with top-quality surgeons in this popular destination for cosmetic surgery.
Facial liposuction is an uncomplicated procedure, is relatively quick to perform and with far less downtime than a facelift. Very often, people only have one or two problem areas on their face that they are unhappy with, such as double chins, jowls or turkey/wattle neck – and facial liposuction may solve these problems without the need for further surgery. Although it is very often performed on its own, it can also be done in combination with other treatments as part of a facial rejuvenation procedure.
Tijuana is one of Mexico’s most popular destinations for cosmetic surgery. This is partly due to its proximity to the US-Mexico border, making it a convenient location for Canadians and Americans to travel to. However, people do visit from across the world to Tijuana too, lured by low prices and its excellent reputation in plastic, cosmetic and esthetic surgery.
We always recommend doing your own due diligence – and finding out as much as you can about your procedure, and checking out prospective surgeons and clinics to make sure you are comfortable with what they are providing.
Medical Departures partners only with providers we are happy with. Our background checks include legal/criminal proceedings, site visits, verification of qualifications & professional memberships and online testimonials. We publish this information online, along with clinic photos and virtual video tours so you can make your own mind up about whether a particular clinic and/or surgeon is the right choice for you. We also publish prices, so you’ll know exactly how much it costs before you book.
Affordability is one of the primary reasons patients look to Tijuana for their facial liposuction procedures, but also because modern techniques mean good results with minimal downtime – equally great for patients who want to get back home to their everyday lives, as well as those who would like to spend some time on holiday sightseeing. There is plenty to see and do in Tijuana, along with all the beautiful scenery and other towns along the Baja California peninsula so we don’t blame anyone for wanting to make the most of it.
A local anesthetic will be administered into the areas to be treated and small incisions made. A narrow tube (cannula) is inserted through the incision and a solution injected which liquefies the fat. This is then sucked out via the same tube. There are other techniques which may be used to break up the fat, such as ultrasound, but it will still need to be removed by the tube.
After the procedure is finished the small wounds will be stitched closed. The procedure usually takes around an hour.
Most people typically feel good 1-2 days later – although with the bruising and swelling they probably don’t actually look it! Painkillers will be prescribed for the first few days, and you may experience a little tightness and discomfort, but with a little help from scarves or high necks you should be able to disguise a lot of the bruising and swelling, which takes up to 2 weeks to disappear.
In the United States it costs around $2,000, whereas in Tijuana you can expect to pay about 50% less for facial liposuction.
