Being a city that borders the United States, Tijuana has had to adapt, improve and demonstrate its value nationally and internationally. Today its medical services are one of the main reasons that place it on the map for foreigners.

This municipality of Baja California is not only known as "the capital of medical tourism", but it is also a reference point since it has mostly Mexican-American, American and Canadian patients.

"A great percentage of the surgery in general that is done in our city is plastic surgery, bariatric surgery and dental care; these are the three specialties that are provided in the medical field," said the president of the College of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgeons of Baja California (CCPERBC), Juan Pablo Cervantes Díaz.

And although official statistics place Mexico City as the place where most plastic surgeries are performed in the country, followed by Guadalajara and then Tijuana, the latter has gained the preference of many, thanks to its proximity to the American country, the certification of specialists, for its infrastructure, but especially for the low costs of consultations, procedures, drugs and surgeries compared to the U.S. (between 30% and 70% less).

In addition, today more than ever, Tijuana's plastic surgery specialists have demonstrated their commitment to patient safety in the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Find out how:
