Posted by Dr. Santiago Hernandez, M.D., September 21, 2016
Over the last few decades, cosmetic surgery has gone up in popularity, and with the emergence of new and highly sophisticated technologies, surgeons are able to deliver outstanding results every time. Whether it is a tummy tuck or a nose reshaping surgery, long lasting and aesthetically pleasing results attract many, tempting them to go for cosmetic surgical treatments.
While plastic surgery in itself is quite expensive and complex, cosmetic surgery is significantly more so. Only highly trained and qualified surgeons can be trusted for the job; the treatment requirements too are many, all of which need to be met for the surgery to minimize potential risks.
Surgery of any kind is a delicate procedure, with a certain amount of risk always associated with it. Different patients respond in a different way to the treatment, and that is why it is crucial to consult the best in the field, with a highly trained staff, and get the procedure done in a properly equipped facility.
With cosmetic surgery prices skyrocketing in most countries around the world, many patients are opting for medical travel to get their surgery in Mexico.
Cosmetic Surgery in Mexico- An Affordable Option
Mexico has become the center for all those who want to get a tummy tuck or face lift and are looking for high quality care but can’t afford the astronomical costs charged within their country of residence. Most people prefer treatment across the border as the quality of surgical treatment is on par with that available in other developed countries, all while keeping the costs affordable.
Most specialists and physicians in Mexico have earned a reputation for offering quality consultation, treatment and post surgery care, with outstanding results. Many people are advised only to seek surgical treatment from recognized and certified cosmetic surgeons in Mexico.
Cosmetic surgery is tricky, and any professional errors during the procedure can result in serious scarring for the patient and affect their overall health in certain cases. If you are going for cosmetic surgery services in Mexico, it is thus critical that you select the best surgeon and physician for the job.
According to the American Society of Plastics Surgeons ASPS, the total number of cosmetic surgery procedures increased by an estimated 3% in 2014. The trend shows that there will be an upward shift in the demand for cosmetic surgeries getting done by people.
The president of ASPS, Scot Glasberg MD, shared that, with the emergence of new technologies and medical advancements in the field of plastic surgery, the demand is bound to increase in the future, as patients will have a wider range of surgery options to choose from.
Variety Of Cosmetic Surgery Options Available
The popularity of cosmetic surgery procedures has also resulted in increased diversity in terms of the options being available, for both the male and the female population. While breast augmentation treatment cases after lumpectomy or mastectomy have increased significantly over the last decade, they have also improved the quality of life for many patients.
Liposuction surgeries have increased by 5% over the last years, while nose reshaping has decreased by 2% in the last year. In the year 2014, there were around 15.6 million cosmetic surgery procedures performed for patients in the United States alone.

In Mexico, all of these cosmetic procedures are performed by highly qualified and recognized surgeon professionals, offering quality consultation and services at an affordable price compared to that being charged by surgeons across the border.
With the astounding rise in demand for cosmetic surgeries, Mexico is the choice destination for medical travel for many owing to the availability of a number of certified surgeons, highly qualified staff, and well-equipped surgery facilities which are ideal for treatment. With Mexico emerging as the hub for plastic surgery treatment, large groups of people are expected to travel across the border for affordable high quality cosmetic surgery treatments.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons predicts that the total number of cosmetic procedures in 2015 is expected to exceed 55 million by the end of the current year! This prediction was shared in the official medical journal of the ASPS, and the forecasted number of surgeries is more than quadruple the number of cases recorded in 2005.
With the number of cases increasing at such a volatile rate, many people will find physicians in Mexico the ideal choice for a cosmetic procedure. Minimum hassle, affordable cost, and professional quality treatment available within easy reach, with no need to wait for appointments for months, all are factors that contribute to the emergence of Mexico in this regard.
