Tijuana, known for its industrial growth, culture and convenient medical care has been for decades one of the world’s most desirable medical tourism destinations. It is the busiest land border in the world, as well as the second most popular destination for medical tourism and it’s no coincidence! Every year, more than 2 million people choose Tijuana for different surgical procedures, from bariatric surgery to rhinoplasty and of course, Facelifts. VIDA and its plastic surgery facility, COSMED Clinic, are proud to be leaders in this area providing the best care possible in all of Tijuana, welcoming patients from around the world. As you’ll soon discover, this Baja destination is where some of the best surgeons and hospitals are available. After reading through some of the reasons that make Tijuana the best destination for a Facelift, you’ll be wondering, why would I go anywhere else?

Here are some of the reasons why we are sure that Tijuana will be your top choice:

  1. Qualified Surgeons with years of experience are the norm here. And you can let us help you find the absolute best! Being one of the preferred destinations for numerous procedures in the world is not a coincidence. Tijuana is the place where patients come to be treated by talented, experienced physicians, who are certified and have undergone extensive training not only in Mexico, but also in the United States. If you decide to get a Facelift at COSMED Clinic, the state of the art surgical facility at the VIDA Wellness and Beauty Center, you can rest assured that every single procedure is done to the highest standards possible. All the surgeons that work out of COSMED Clinic are board certified and up to date on the latest technology and techniques, performing hundreds of successful surgeries every year! What about internationally recognized doctors? The answer again, is us! Our plastic and reconstructive surgeons are members of organizations such as the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the San Diego Plastic Surgery Society and the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, just to name a few. This ensures that the physician working on your face is a world class surgeon, which will, in turn, get you the results you are dreaming of.


    1. The Facelift that’s worth it! A refreshed and rejuvenated look is definitely a long-term investment! After all, a Facelift has been described as “turning back the clock”, the most effective way to get rid of your aging face and bring back the vibrant, youthful appearance you once had. According to Realself, the average cost of this operation in the US can set you back more than $12,000 dollars, with the procedure costing up to twice that amount in some of the largest cities in the country. In Tijuana, you can get the same or even better results at a fraction of the cost. Although every case is different, and the surgeons will tailor the procedure to your needs, the average Facelift performed by the talented staff at COSMED is around $4,800 USD.  The level of care and expertise you’ll be paying for, on the other hand, is not a fraction of what you’d get in the US. Our plastic surgeons have over 30 years of combined experience and our surgical facility was the first in Mexico to be accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), so trust us… making this investment in yourself is overall the smartest way to go.


  1. A Facelift in Tijuana is an Overall Luxury Experience. Going to the doctor is never fun, right? Most of the time, it can be boring and stressful, and instead of feeling better, you are left with more doubts and questions. Well, coming to Tijuana is never coming for “just a surgery” and you will never be “just another patient”. VIDA operates in a way that will make you feel calm, relaxed and pampered. From the initial consultation,  with our attentive staff and our English-speaking doctors, to the 24/7 nurses taking care of you in our stylish recovery boutique, you can have it all! Come to Tijuana and see why we are honoring the “tourism” portion of medical tourism. A Facelift at COSMED is a true luxury experience since we offer everything you might need to make the procedure as smooth as possible, including a relaxing atmosphere for you to recover, where your needs come before anything else.


  1. Luxurious and…all inclusive. Talking about experiences, we should mention that if you decide to get a facial rejuvenation surgery with us, you’ll get an all inclusive package. We take care of everything for you. If you are flying into San Diego, one of our courteous drivers will pick you up and take you south of the border to our clinic. From the moment you get to the airport to the time you start your journey back home, your overall care is covered. At VIDA, our expert team will design a program unique for you! Once your Facelift is done, you can relax and focus on healing in our on-site recovery boutique. While you are here, you’ll get a personal concierge to help and assist you, along the round the clock nursing care  and everything in between. Truly an all-inclusive holistic approach!


  1. Location, location, location. Being just south of San Diego, California, makes Tijuana the best location for many patients. If you are a West Coast resident, you’re only a quick drive away from the Facelift you’ve been dreaming of. Your surgeon can tell you when you’ll be able to fly after your surgery, but if you are coming from California, you won’t have to worry about that. If you need or choose to fly, the San Diego International Airport is so close to VIDA, that getting the new you on a plane back home will be a breeze. Take the stress and the hassle out of the equation, focus on yourself!
