Plastic surgery in Mexico: High Quality and Less Cost

Posted on December 3, 2008. Filed under: Net Spy | Tags: , , |

The great potential of plastic surgery in Mexico caught the attention of health care companies and investors as a new market. With the increasing number of Americans traveling for affordable plastic surgery, the expansion of Mexican tourism facilities and medical centers is accelerating. In fact, Tecnologico de Monterrey, the private university that owns San Jose Hospital, plans a $100 million medical center in Monterrey. Grupo Star Medica, the builder of seven Mexican centers in five years, is speeding up an expansion aimed at Americans, funded partly by billionaire Carlos Slim. Not only locals but also U.S. based companies are fascinated on plastic surgery in Mexico. Christus Health, a nonprofit based in Irving, Texas, owns six hospitals in Mexico after opening one in Reynosa near McAllen, Texas. Dallas-based International Hospital Corp., the operator of three hospitals in Mexico, is building a fourth in the central city of Puebla.

The development of affordable plastic surgery brought a great impact to the United States, Canada and Europe where top notch medical care can be obtained but at a price which a middle class citizen could never afford. Plastic surgery cost is the greatest asset of medical tourism in Mexico and in other countries like Argentina, Costa Rica, Brazil and India. Many other third world countries are also joining the ranks of medical travel agencies with proven high quality, affordable plastic surgery. And of course of all these countries are investing in broadening their health care quality.

Plastic surgery cost in Mexico could change your life without spending too much. Bridget Flanagan, a 21-year-old college student from Olympia, Washington, was left helpless after finding out the plastic surgery cost for an obesity procedure back at home. The only way she can afford such price is to travel 2000 miles to Hospital San Jose in Monterrey, Mexico. The procedure was a success! Bridget drops 45 pounds off her peak weight of 275 and saved her $6,600.

Though medical travel can save you from overwhelming plastic surgery cost in the United States, risk is without a doubt a fear factor for patients. Before taking part of medical vacation, patients must also do their part and investigate the country and hospital that will handle their medical. The best thing to consider is the Joint Commission accreditation (The Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit group based in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, evaluates and certifies health-care organizations around the world that meet a set of quantifiable standards). So far, Mexico has only two accredited hospitals, San Jose and Christus Muguerza Alta Especialidad, both in Monterrey. It would be safer if you choose to undergo surgery in these two hospitals.

Affordable plastic surgery in Mexico can now be acquired by the help of medical tourism agencies that organize and fix schedules for patients. GoSculptura Mexico – a medical tourism leader in the organization of packages for plastic surgery in Mexico, offers a complete medical vacation package starting from a free consultation, travel and hotel accommodations, surgery, recovery and a follow up back home.
