Mexico reported an astounding 57,690 breast implant procedures last year, but they weren’t just Mexican women. Another country that is growing an international reputation as a prime location for “medical tourism”, cheap surgeries and super-close proximity to the US has resulted in an upswing in elective cosmetic procedures annually. For those who are serious about saving a buck on a body-altering surgery, they risk encountering questionable tap water, sticky-fingered street merchants, mobs of beggars, and the obvious language barrier to have a boob job in Tijuana, or in any other mecca of “reputable” plastic surgeons in Mexico. What this means is you should proceed with caution and make sure you weigh the pros and cons of destination surgeries. Is it really worth it?
