“Most people know they can save a little money by traveling overseas for surgeries, but many are shocked to know they can save almost 50% on some of the exact same surgeries they can get in the U.S,“ explained Dr. Alejandro Quiroz, M.D.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2010
Board certified plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgeons in Tijuana released a new chart this month showcasing the significant cost savings patients can receive when they travel across the border for cosmetic surgery.
Surgical fees on popular procedures like breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and liposuction are 40-50% less on average than those surgical fees charged by U.S. doctors.
For patients who have recently had lap band or gastric bypass surgery, the savings for the much needed after-weight loss procedures are significant. Most patients who have undergone a major weight loss surgery need multiple surgeries afterward. According to National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease these procedures can average upwards of $20,000 and $25,000 in the U.S. and are not covered by insurance.
The lack of health coverage available for many of these cosmetic procedures sends more 150,000 Americans per year to clinics outside the US in search of lower costs and more flexible financing options. For many Americans still recovering from the recession, Mexico is becoming the most realistic travel option for these surgeries.
CosMed Clinic in Tijuana is only 20 miles from the San Diego US/Mexico Border and is known for its board certified plastic surgeons licensed to practice in both the United States and Mexico. The Tijuana based clinic provides the most advanced plastic surgery techniques and services available rivaling most U.S. clinics.
“Most people know they can save a little money by traveling overseas for surgeries, but many are shocked to know they can save almost 50% on some of the exact same surgeries they can get in the U.S,“ explained Dr. Alejandro Quiroz, M.D. CosMed’s Chief Surgeon who is licensed in both the United States and Mexico “That’s why we posted this updated chart on our web site, to give potential patients a realistic look at the cost differences and how affordable these surgeries can be.”
