In recent years Tijuana has been characterized as one of the most important cities in terms of cosmetic surgeries. The affordable costs and the various services offered in the clinics are just some of the things that cause this popularity to increase.

Tijuana, Mexico, the best city for surgeries?

The decision to have plastic surgery is not so simple, before performing one, it is necessary to know as much as possible about where it will be performed. Therefore, in case you want to have cosmetic surgery, we will explain why you should choose Tijuana.

It is important to remember that medical tourism industry has grown in Mexican cities, including Tijuana, Baja California Mexico, due to its nearness with the border, this is the main reason why many people come to perform procedures like, bariatric surgery, breast surgery, mommy makeover, post-bariatric body contouring, facial rejuvenation and more to improve their image with the best quality of care.

Patients in the border choose Tijuana as a medical tourism destination because of its affordable prices.

Medical quality

In order for a doctor to perform plastic surgery, it is necessary that he has all the permits and certificates requested by the government of Mexico. As Tijuana is one of the most important locations in terms of medical tourism, clinics usually have board-certified plastic surgeons.

Being endorsed by the Council of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, plastic surgeons provide the patient with quality treatments. However, unfortunately like all over the world, ill-intentioned people can pose as a plastic surgeon, they may offer a low-cost aesthetic surgery and put the patient at any risk of complications because they do not have the proper education which makes them unqualified doctors.

For this reason, it is important that the surgeon be investigated before deciding to go with him. That he has his professional license, and also recognized inside and outside the country, that is a good sign to choose him. Dr. Flores Valdivia is a recognized plastic surgeon certified to perform different types of plastic surgery procedures.

Comfort is important

Tijuana is a city that in addition to seeking safety for tourists,  also tries to provide them with as much comfort as possible. It is for this reason that tourists can always find a good hotel near clinics, where they can rest after a long trip.

Surgeons with ethics

Although plastic surgeries are becoming increasingly popular, the truth is that not all people are candidates for one. This can have serious consequences, so the advantage of going with a professional is that the patient is always given a safe environment, in which they are explained whether or not they are a candidate for surgery.


Also, if it is not, it is about giving the best options to be treated or in case the problem is that the patient is not prepared, then the support he needs will be provided.


It is common for plastic surgeries to not be covered by health insurance, but this does not necessarily have to be a problem. In Tijuana, the cost of surgeries is usually much lower than in countries like the United States and Canada, thanks to the currency exchange among other things.

Do an interview

Although most of the time clinics in Tijuana perform plastic surgery safely, as a patient you have the right to know the qualifications of your doctor. Interview him about the number of procedures similar to yours that he has performed, ask him about the team that will assist you, as well as the permits that he has to operate.


Professional doctors will always answer in a more friendly way to these and other questions that the patient may present about the surgery.

Times are changing and new specialized clinics and hospitals are being built each time, or depending on the case, they choose to remodel, making their infrastructure have all the necessary services.

These changes also bring with them the implementation of new technology to health services, as well as new teams of specialist doctors and nurses, trained to meet the needs of the patient.

Hygiene and health protocols

Currently due to the Covid-19, measures have been implemented with the aim of ensuring the health of patients, before, during and after plastic surgery. To ensure its safety, a pre-assessment is made, at the same time, the team of professionals will have the necessary materials to avoid any type of contagion.
