Clinic Review

cosmed clinic plastic aesthetic reconstructive surgery in mexico

CosMed Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico is a plastic surgery centre founded in 1987. During more than 30 years of its existence, the doctors working there have helped thousands of people, having performed over 15,000 aesthetic procedures. CosMed Clinic is a part of the VIDA network, one of the most popular and well-regarded healthcare providers in Mexico.

CosMed Clinic was styled after the Mayo Clinic - #1 hospital in the USA, according to the U.S. News & World Report. For the specialists working at the CosMed Clinic, this means exceptionally high standards for the professionalism of the doctors and the quality of service.

The doctors working at the CosMed are both nationally and internationally certified to practice in Mexico and the USA. Many have studied and practised abroad, including in the most prestigious medical schools and programs. One of the hospital’s top plastic surgeons, Dr Juan Carlos Fuentes, is a student of Dr Bruce F. Connell, known as “father of modern facelift”.

    CosMed clinic is the first in Mexico to receive certification from the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) - the golden standard of healthcare in the western hemisphere. This recognition is given only to hospitals that comply with the highest standard of medical care. This means clean hospital rooms, modern treatment protocols, state-of-the-art equipment, certified professional doctors, the confidentiality of records, and the patient’s safety as the top priority.

    While CosMed is Mexico-situated, a large percentage of the patients come from abroad. CosMed aesthetic medicine centre is especially popular among people from the USA, Western Europe and Australia. To accommodate such clients better, the clinic provides various services, including taking over the arrangements for transportation and accommodation.

One of the biggest benefits of CosMed clinic for foreign patients is the price. Due to the country’s economy, undergoing a procedure in Mexico can be 30-50% cheaper than in the USA. At the same time, the patients don’t have to compromise the quality or comfort for getting the same excellent results.
