Face Lift in Tijuana Mexico, anyone had experience?

Face Lift in Tijuana Mexico, anyone had experience?

Postby lajolla » Thu Mar 17, 2011 12:03 am

Hi all! I am new to the board, and have read a ton of posts! Thanks for all the information. At the tender age of 61, I have decided to have a face lift. I had some plastic surgery when I was in my mid 30's with great results, and now my face is definitely showing signs of age! I have wanted to do this for years, but wasn't able to take the financial plunge, but now I can.

I had some consultations with PS's in California and got quotes between $18,000 and $20,000. Guess they haven't heard a recession is on. I then got a quote from a PS in Tijuana for $7700. This was for a facelift, forehead lift, upper and lower eyes being revised, and fat transfer in the nasal labia areas. This shows me how much medical malpractice and other insurance jacks up the stateside doctors. In the end though, it is your face. You don't want to end up like Sylvester Stallone or Kenny Rogers. Has anyone on this board actually had work done by any of the P.S. in the Tijuana area? There are a lot of them that are Board Certified, and have good credentials. Dr. Quiroz is the one who gave me the quote. I just want to make sure this is a good choice, it certainly is a lot more affordable!

Hi! I'm going to see Dr. Quiroz too, but not for a FaceLift -- I need a little body work done :D When I was trying to make my decision, I spoke with these women who also wrote a testimonial for him. Why don't you reach out to them and see what they have to say. Here is the link http://cosmedclinicmexico.wordpress.com/2011/02/18/cosmetic-surgery-patient-testimonial/ Hope this helps! Take care and keep us posted

I got another estimate from a plastic surgeon here in the San Diego area, $21,475!! It breaks down like this:
Facelift including brow lift, fat transfer (nasal labia area) and upper and lower lids: $16,800, Surgery center $3500, Anesthesia services $1175. The surgery center is so expensive because it is part of Scripps Memorial hospital. I have now spoken to three very qualified surgeons, and would probably be happy with any one of them, but if all things are equal then I would rather spend $7700 than $21,000!

It is amazing how much more expensive medical expenses are in the U.S.

I have an appointment at Cosmed center next week. I'll let you know what my experience is.

I do know that Dr. Quiroz and his office mate, Dr. Fuentes trained with Bruce Connell in Irvine Californai. Dr. Connell is regarded as the father of the modern facelift.

I am considering Dr. Fuentes. I simply have not seen the facial work of Dr. Quiroz. I believe the facial work on the Cosmed websie is that of Dr. Fuentes. You may want to look at Plasticsurgeryjourneys.com. Along with the doctor sought are the two at Cosmed, Dr. Caloca and Dr, Cardenaras.
