Mexico – Plastic Surgery! Tijuana or Guadalajara?

Large modern complex of the Cima Hospital in San Jose, Costa Rica.

When it comes to where to go in Mexico, among the main considerations for the best experience in plastic surgery are 1). Safety  2). Hospital accreditations  3). Finding the best doctor, and 4). Cost.

And that brings us to the question of which locations are best? Tijuana or Guadalajara?

Of course, it is a personal choice depending on where you live, which is the closest?  What have you heard?  Which is the best doctor someone told you about?

But there are two main differences.  Here are two stories for your consideration:  1).  Tijuana  2). Guadalajara

So for me, the choice is clear, Guadalajara is the best destination for plastic surgery.  It is home to some of the best plastic surgeons in the world.  Why?  Because the main medical school in Mexico is right there!
