Mexico, in fact, has become one of the world’s prime destinations for those clients looking for low-cost, high-quality cosmetic procedures. At Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery in Mexico, under the leadership of our medical director, Dr. Manuel Gutierrez Romero, we have been providing our patients safe and affordable cosmetic surgery - face lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, and a host of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures - for over 10 years.
We are conveniently located in the prestigious Lloyds SIMSA building in Tijuana B.C. Mexico - just a 25-minute drive from San Diego and 150 yards from the United States border. Since our inception, it has been our commitment to continually provide our clients access to the most advanced plastic and cosmetic surgery techniques in a comfortable, clean, and discreet environment; providing you with superlative attention and service and the most reasonable price.
Guiding our center’s philosophy is our medical director, Dr. Manuel Gutierrez Romero, a board-certified plastic aesthetic and reconstructive surgeon for nearly 13 years and licensed by the Mexican board of plastic surgery.

He is considered one of the most renowned and dedicated plastic and cosmetic surgeons in Tijuana Mexico.
Dr. Manuel Gutierrez Romero, and the center as a whole, is committed to providing patients with the safest, most comfortable experience possible with the beautiful outcome that they expect from plastic surgery. Mexico has become one of the premier destinations for affordable cosmetic procedures; but as with any elective surgery you need to take the time to ensure that you choose the right doctor, as well as the right facility.
While considering plastic cosmetic surgery in Mexico you must consider some very important factors:
Selecting a surgeon who is able to speak English is crucial so that you can effectively communicate about the procedure and after-care - and so that you can have all of your questions answered appropriately.
You must be able to verify your surgeon’s license and credentials. You should always deal with a board certified plastic surgeon; every country in the world has a board which makes it easy for the consumer to research and verify any plastic surgeon. The following is a link to the Mexican board of plastic surgery -
You must have a comprehensive pre-evaluation analysis of your case with your surgeon. The best thing to do is send photos of the area(s) where you are considering having surgery and have the surgeon offer his professional opinion. The most important thing is determining whether he will be able to provide the result that you are looking for; the surgeon must give you a clear and logical explanation of the process, preparation, procedure, and after-care.
Why does Mexico offer less expensive cosmetic surgery?
All of the factors above reflect an overall savings to the patient.
While it may be tempting to pursue the cheapest price you find for plastic surgery procedures online, be mindful of the sacrifice you may have to make for such a low price.
Don’t just go for the cheapest price for plastic surgery procedures on the Internet; remember to consider the quality of surgery that may be associated with such a cost. There is only a certain margin in which you can successfully achieve high quality along with a good deal. We all want a great price, but none of us want that great price to come at the expense of cheap medications, cheap implants, and an inexperienced anesthesiologist (it’s typically more expensive to hire an experienced board certified anesthesiologist).
You are already saving money by considering plastic surgery in Mexico but there is no need to push that savings further by risking your health. Remember that - like in the United States - in Mexico there are a great number of doctors performing plastic surgery procedures without being board certified. In fact, most of the time the lowest prices on surgery are being offered by those doctors who are not board certified.
Our country is home to a good number of accredited facilities for plastic surgery. Mexico, in fact, offers you saving just by coming here for your cosmetic surgery - face lift, tummy tuck, and more at incredible cost savings. Often, however, costs savings can come at the sacrifice of quality of medications, implants, and more. Look for those doctors and facilities that have made a commitment to cost savings for their patients without sacrificing excellent standards.
Referrals from family or friends - as well as any previous patients - are gold. Your surgeon must provide numerous testimonials from patients and include full names and contact information so that you can speak directly to them to ask about facility, staff, satisfaction with their procedure(s) and their overall experience and result.
Know what you want
It is very helpful to have multiple consultations with plastic surgeons in your area. This will give you a clear idea of the possible treatments and techniques available in your case. The more information you gather, the more confidence you will have to make the decision that is right for you; and at the time you have your consultation for cosmetic surgery in Mexico you will have peace of mind.
Some suggestions from plastic surgeons can absolutely vary but the proposal has to make sense, must sound logical, and, in the end, it must fulfill your needs and expectations.
Chat Over the Phone
First speak - in English - with facility staff and the plastic surgeon in Mexico. This communication will gradually give you peace of mind and confidence - answering many of the questions you are likely to have about your procedure including the overall process, method of payment, verification of credentials, and traveling arrangements. You should be able to send photos directly to your surgeon, along with your personal medical information. You may also consider having a virtual consultation with the surgeon, He will be able to understand your needs and provide recommendations as far as preparation before you travel.
Your surgeon must provide you with emergency contact numbers and somebody from the surgical facility must be available at all times.
