Dr. Munoz Meza is amazing in every way. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and confident with my decision to have plastic surgery. He listened to what I wanted and delivered. I was up and walking around Rosarito on postop day 4 of my mommy makeover. He has the best bed side manner and is truly an artist. THANK YOU FOR MY DREAM BODY!!!

We came to to Hospital Angeles from Canada for the Functional Oncology Clinic. The clinic definitely saved my husband’s life...however, you need to be prepared for less timely and reliable customer service once they get your money, and especially if you need to go back for follow-up treatments. When you try to talk to them about this, the response is, “I’m so sorry you feel this way.” No accountability and no reparation. Although they initially come across as being 100% about caring for people, please remember that it is still a business to them. It is still about the money. Just a heads up so you’re not disillusioned like we were.

I came here to visit a special friend of ours. She was an employee of the hospital (which we did not know) Our friend was hit by a car while walking across the street. She was hospitalized here and had surgery also. When we arrived the staff showed us to their little breakfast/lunch bistro area. We ordered some food and coffees and some tea. We were awaiting our turn to visit our friend. When we tried to pay for our meals and drinks we were told that it was on the hospital and that any friends of their employee (our friend) were friends of theirs also. We had a wonderful visit. We noticed how the great care our friend was receiving. The nurses were also amazing. What a great hospital. We are so happy to know our special friend worked there and received such professional and courteous service. Thank you...Jay

I recently visited Dr. Castaneda and Cosmed Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico for gynecomastia surgery and lid surgery. This doctor and clinic are top of the line. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, the clinic clean and modern and the doctor top notch. The work performed beats all expectations that I had and the scarring is near invisible only 5 weeks out. Don't be afraid to go here down in Mexico; I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Adriana his assistant was so professional and walked me through the whole procedure and everything that was said was exactly how it went. I am so happy I did my research and found an amazing Plastic Surgeon. Sometimes going to Mexico may seem sketchy but I can assure you these Doctors know what they are doing. There office is so nice. The operating room was also very nice. Thank you Dr. Castaneda love my new body!!!

I had a wonderful experience in May 2019 at Cosmed in Tijuana. The doctors, nurses and facilities are wonderful, comparable to any in the U.S. - and I could not have received better care anywhere! The work that they did was magnificent (surgeon that I followed up with at Kaiser Permanente agreed and said the work was excellent). I felt very safe and very well taken care of during the entire process in Tijuana.

After months of researching for the best doctor to do my surgery I finally came across Dr. Huesca thanks to a friend of mine. He has been by far the best experience I’ve had while out of the state. From beginning to end my experience has been phenomenal the nurses were great, he even sent a nurse Brenda to the comfort of my own home to bathe me and guide me through the draining stage after my lipo. I highly recommend this doctor and I will definitely send all my close friends and family to get a consultation with him he’s loving and caring and he will give you phone calls to follow up on your care . One more thing my stay in the hospital was great and the food was outstanding

Yo vine desde Estados Unidos y Innovare es el mejor lugar para cirugía estética. El Dr César Octavio López Romero me hico un Tummy tuck y Liposuction y desde que llegue el servicio a todos momentos fue de lo mejor. El doctor y todo su staff Selene, Shujey, y Gaby son muy amables y te hacen sentir cómoda y que todas tus necesidades son importantes. Cualquier cosa que ocupaba o preguntas que tubería siempre respondían rápido y me hacían sitas para checarme. Llevo una semana desde mi cirugía y me siento muy bien y los resultados son increíbles. 100% Recomendado I’ve gone to other plastic surgeons and Dr César Octavio Lopez Romero and his staff are by far the best. I had excellent service upon arrival I felt safe and comfortable and all my needs were important to the doctor. I got a tummy tuck and liposuction and if i had any questions or concerns they were fast to reply and set an appointment to check on my concerns. It’s been 7 days and I feel great and look great. Thank you to Dr César Octavio Lopez Romero and his staff. Recommended!!

Muy bonitas las instalaciones, lástima la atención del personal, primero mi llegada fue a las 9:00 y con la novedad que no había habitaciones que hasta las dos, por lo que mi familiar se quedó en un sillón esperando. Después de la cirugía te pasan a recuperación que me explicaron era de una hora, pues estuve dos horas y media y nada de habitación, para esto ya eran las 4:00 Pm y el espacio en donde estaba también era de ingreso de pacientes así que era un mercado, generando un gran malestar con tanto ruido y movimiento, una tal Maricela enfermera riéndose de mi que así era el protocolo de tres horas en recuperación, deja mucho que desear el personal. En cuartos las enfermeras muy lindas No volvería por ningún motivo a ese lugar donde el paciente es lo menos importante

Very very disappointed with this clinic. First I asked for one Dr. and was assured I'd get him, even after I arrived, but I didn't. I asked for lipo and a thigh lift. The Dr. explained he couldn't do the thigh lift as I'd get bad results so I agreed. When I woke up he'd done it, and hadn't done one of the places he was supposed to for the liposuction. Worst of all he tried a new kind of suture with me and they dissolved too early so I left with gaping wounds that were infected. I had to get emergency care when I got back to Canada. The clinic admitted fault due to the new type of stitches and agreed to correct the scars which are huge and brown because the gaps in the wounds were up to 2 inches wide! Now they refuse and won't even answer email. Go somewhere else for your surgery as this place does poor work, won't stand behind it and are very unethical. You do not want to end up like me!

Horrible experience. What would help are doctors who listen to what patients want and need rather than doctors who insist on pushing treatments patients don't want or need in order to make an easy buck. If I tell the Dr that I want 15 units of Botox because that's what I always get, then I would like to receive 15 units of Botox and not 30. First time in my life I leave in mid-consultation. And "consultation" is a misnomer since this doctor took a sideways look at me from across his desk and told the nurse to prepare 30 units - after I told him that I only wanted my glabella to be injected and that for my muscles 15 units is more than enough. Thankyouverymuch but I don't want you to stick a needle anywhere else in my face so that you can sell your 30 units. Very glad I left because with that attitude - he started rolling his eyes and grunting when I told him I didn't want my horizontal lines to be injected - who knows what he could have done. Avoid avoid avoid.

Questions and answers

What is plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty that allows reconstructing, restores, or changes the human body. Plastic surgery unites two subspecialties:

  • Reconstructive plastic surgery. It is done when a patient needs to reconstruct some body parts caused by trauma, diseases, tumors, congenital deformities. Reconstructive surgery allows to restore/improve the functioning of some parts of the body and appearance.
  • Cosmetic plastic surgery. It is carried out when a patient needs only to improve the appearance not body parts structure or their functioning.

What indications are for plastic surgery?

Indications for plastic surgery depends on the case. However, there are general signs when a procedure is indicated:

  • correct cosmetic defects caused by age changes
  • improve body contour
  • get rid of excess fat
  • enlarge or reduce some parts of the body
  • improve the functioning or esthetic look of some parts of the body caused by diseases or trauma.

If you have any medical issues, get a consultation with a doctor to decide whether plastic surgery is a proper option for you. 

When plastic surgery is contraindicated?

Performing of plastic surgery can be limited or canceled if a patient has some contraindications. The most common are:

  • Oncological diseases. When plastic surgery is processed, malignant cells can be replaced by accident and cause cancer spread. Also, the risk of clotting is increased.
  • Diabetes. In the case of diabetes, the blood supply is reduced, which can lead to necrosis in the operated area.
  • Smoking. A patient needs to give up smoking at least for several weeks before and after surgery. Nicotine narrows down the vessels and capillaries reducing the blood supply of tissues. As a result, the healing process goes slow and with complications.
  • Infections. If you have any infection, you need to warn your doctor and decide whether it can be a contraindication for surgery.
  • Pregnancy. Anesthesia or some medications applied during or after surgery can negatively affect the fetus.

A patient has to discuss with a plastic surgeon all existing health problems and, if necessary, undergo the medical tests. It will help to avoid possible side effects of plastic surgery and worsening health conditions.

What is preoperative preparation for plastic surgery?

The preoperative preparation for plastic surgery includes the following steps:

  1. Arrival at a chosen plastic surgery clinic.
  2. Seeing a doctor who will perform a procedure.
  3. Medical testing (blood and urine analysis + some specific tests depending on the plastic surgery type)

If you have no contraindications for plastic surgery, a doctor appoints an operation the next day after a visit. 

How long does the recovery period take?

The length of the recovery period depends on the plastic surgery type that has been performed. On average, it takes about 2-3 weeks before a patient returns to work and daily routine life. For some surgeries, it can take a year to see a final result, get rid of swelling and scars.

Is plastic surgery safe in Mexico?

Plastic surgery is considered a safe procedure only in case you choose a qualified doctor to manage an operation. Also, you need to be realistic about the changes of your appearance and not to demand some extreme corrections of the body. To minimize complications, warn a plastic surgeon about your health conditions, some chronic diseases, infections, and bad habits.

What are the side effects of plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery does not bring many side effects in case an experienced doctor carries out a procedure. However, you have to be aware of the following side effects and risks:

  • Hematomas. This is a frequent complication that occurs after all types of surgeries, not only plastic ones. Hematomas take place in about 1% of patients after breast augmentation or facelift. 
  • Swelling. After almost all intervention a patient can observe swelling. Usually, it disappears in several weeks after surgery. In some cases, it may take place for a couple of months.
  • Blood loss. Blood loss is a rare complication that can happen on the operating table or after surgery. If you feel weakness after an operation, inform your doctor.
  • Infection. This side effect takes place in about 1-2.5% of cases. To manage this condition, antibiotics can be prescribed.
  • Nerve damage. Patients often feel the numbness of the area where the operation has been performed. In most of the cases, it is temporary, and sensitivity recovers after a while.
  • Scarring. Scarring remains visible rare. In most of the cases, it disappears over time or becomes almost invisible.
  • Thrombosis. It can happen in 0.09% of all plastic surgeries. However, this is a severe complication and some cases can be even fatal. 

Does insurance cover plastic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is rarely covered by health insurance. Things are different with reconstructive surgery: if a patient needs to correct defects of appearance caused by disease or trauma, recover the functioning of some parts of the body, the insurance will cover the cost of the procedure.

Why is Mexico trendy for medical tourism?

Mexico is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from the USA and Canada prefer treatment in Mexico to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Mexico annually. So Mexico is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Mexico is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 60% on services compared to Canada or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services is provided here?

In Mexico, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

What documents are required to apply for a visa to Mexico for treatment?

Visas for travel to Mexico require a number of documents. Lists of documents includes:

  • ID card
  • confirmation of online registration and filling out the questionnaire
  • certificate of income and availability of funds
  • insurance policy for a stay in Mexico (original and copy)
  • 2 photos (5x6)
  • visa receipt
  • booking of flight and hotel
  • medical opinion about the need for treatment.

Costs of plastic surgery procedures in Mexico

Procedures Prices
Liposuction $1400 - $4700
Brazilian Butt lift $4500 - $5650
Tummy Tuck $3100 - $8000
Rhinoplasty (nose job) $2400 - $6500
