"Plastic surgery is an investment worth making Looking and feeling your best can powerfully impact your overall quality of life. But if the idea of finding the right plastic surgeon, the right hospital, coordinating local transfers from and to airport – Hotel – hospital, organizing follow up care and the visit of a doctor after surgery, booking hotel, and all post-operative consultations… seem daunting, then you should consider having an all-inclusive plastic surgery experience with TopPlasticSurgeonsMexico!"



How popular is plastic surgery in Mexico?

In 2020, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), 1,3 million plastic surgeries were carried out in Mexico!

With less than 2% of the world’s population, Mexico accounted for 11.3% of the cosmetic operations performed all over the world last year!

The reason why plastic surgery is so common is because the number of plastic surgeons per capita in Mexico is very high.

The second reason is that in the past 10 years, the country has grown economically, and women's salaries and disposable income have gone up increasing their financial power.

While in the USA and Europe it's something “shameful” to have an aesthetic procedure, in Mexico they flaunt it, because society pushes people to do it. Having a plastic surgery done in Mexico shows you care about yourself and it’s a higher social symbol.



Why do people prefer Mexico City get plastic surgery?

Mexico City has the best hospital structures in the country for plastic surgery, bringing safety and comfort to the patient. Many people from Tijuana, Cancun, travel to Mexico City to have a procedure done. "Most of our out of town patients make it clear that Mexico City surgeons are more concerned about the small details and are always looking for results beyond expectations." said Fabiana Rosen - Managing Director at TopPlasticSurgeonsMexico.





Where to get the safest and cheapest plastic surgery in Mexico?

According to The International Medical Travel Journal, the top 3 cities for medical tourism in Mexico are: #1 Mexico City #2 Guadalajara #3 Monterrey

These 3 cities offer international patients the best value for money for cosmetic treatments; getting high-quality plastic surgery at a lower price.

This is actually the number one reason why 62% of international patients choose the Capital - Mexico City- to get a plastic surgery procedure in Mexico.

Private hospitals in Mexico City have established global standards of medical care, combined with advancements in technology; accredited by international organizations to prove their excellence.

In Mexico City you will find talented Board certified plastic surgeons who constantly come up with innovative new techniques to minimize scarring and maximize results. These techniques aim to make fewer incisions in order to maximize the safety of the patient while striving to still give incredible results.


However, achieving the best results from a plastic surgery depends on two important factors:

1. The skill level, experience, and artistry of the plastic surgeon performing the procedure.

2. How well each patient takes care of themselves after the procedure is done.



Is it safe to go to Mexico for plastic surgery?

Although any surgery has some degree of risk, even in the most capable hands; going to Mexico for plastic surgery is fairly common and very safe…if you do your homework!

According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS), the United States, Brazil, and Mexico are the top 3 countries when it comes to the highest number of plastic surgery procedures performed overall. But you can’t take for granted that you will receive the same level of safety and expertise everywhere you go in Mexico. So you have to be very careful. Don’t gamble on your safety or appearance to save money or “get a vacation out of the deal”. You could end up with serious problems with a negative impact for the rest of your life.

If you’re considering going to Mexico for a procedure, educate yourself about safe medical tourism place.


"TopPlasticSurgeonsMexico, in Mexico City has been for the last 10 years the #1 Choice Plastic Surgery Destination for patients travelling from the US and Canada.

Our Board certified plastic surgeons use new technologies helping to make plastic surgery procedures safer than ever, reducing the possibility of human error... Although in many places, plastic surgeon’s office has the nurses or doctors on staff deliver anesthesia to patients. (These nurses and doctors were trained in delivering anesthesia, but they were not specialists). At our facility, we always opt to only offer our patients anesthesia delivered by an anesthesiologist. Our anesthesiologists are expert at administering anesthesia, doing everything necessary to make sure the patient is as calm, comfortable, and safe as possible. And because this is their specialty, patients can trust that they’re in good hands.

We are doing everything possible to make sure that patients are never forced to ask us, “Is plastic surgery safe?” Said Fabiana Rosen - Managing Director at TopPlasticSurgeonsMexico.
