Tijuana Bariatrics, one of the world’s top destinations both for medical tourism and weight loss surgery, has announced that it is now offering plastic surgery and nutritional counseling. The practice has added two plastic surgeons and one nutritionist, all three of whom bring extensive training, skill, and experience to the Tijuana Bariatrics team.

Plastic surgery through Tijuana Bariatrics is available in both Tijuana and Monterrey, Mexico, at hospitals held to the same high standards as U.S. hospitals. Both cities are popular tourist destinations, with Tijuana conveniently located within mere miles of San Diego, California, and Monterrey being one of Mexico’s most affluent and picturesque locales. Patients will have access to a comprehensive range of both surgical and non-surgical procedures at both locations, including breast augmentation, breast lift, face lift, post-bariatric body contouring, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. Further, hair transplantation and laser procedures will be available at the Monterrey location.

Patients from the United States can arrange to have their surgeries performed at one of the two locations by reaching out to Tijuana Bariatric’s care coordinator. The coordinator provides patients with instructions on how to take and provide the practice with photos of areas of their bodies with which they are concerned, answers any questions they might have about surgery, and assists them with scheduling issues.

One of the greatest advantages of having plastic surgery performed through Tijuana Bariatrics is that patients can expect treatment of the highest standard in state-of-the-art surgical facilities, but at a more affordable price than in the United States.

In terms of its core practice area, bariatric surgery, Tijuana Bariatrics has also broadened its scope of services by adding nutritional counseling. The nutritionist establishes a rapport with bariatric patients even before their surgery, chatting with them and gathering their contact information. She visits them in the hospital immediately after their surgery, and always meets with them after their discharge from the hospital when they are back at the hotel, whether individually or in groups.

Nutritional counseling can play a vital role in ensuring the long-term success of bariatric surgery, which requires that patients commit to healthy eating and lifestyle habits for the rest of their lives after their operations. The Tijuana Bariatrics nutritionist specializes in bariatric surgery patients and is able to provide them with individually tailored post-operative plans based on their unique needs and goals. She will monitor them closely during their healing phase, devoting an hour or so a week to communicating with them via live online chat. After their recovery, patients are encouraged to contact her through Facebook, chat, or email whenever they have questions or require guidance as they adapt to their new eating behaviors.
