Plastic Surgery in Tijuana trends for 2019

Happy 2019 everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful time this past holiday season. The new year is always an opportunity to renew ourselves and its also a great time to reflect and plan ahead. With this in mind,  I have been speaking with several plastic surgeons in Tijuana, and to all of them I have been asking the same question: what plastic surgery procedures are they expecting to trend for 2019? Most of them have mentioned that the rise on male patients can have an impact on the trends for 2019 and the preference for minimally invasive cosmetic procedures among their patients is something that they expect to have an impact.

It is estimated that 15% of plastic surgery patients are men,  and this number is expected to rise this year. According to the American Sociey of Plastic Surgeons, the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has grown nearly 200 percent since 2000, with no indication of slowing down. So the natural conclusion, is that minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery in men will be trendy for 2019. Here, the list of the Plastic Surgery Trends for 2019, according to the experts: the plastic surgeons in Tijuana.


"It's really the era of minimally invasive medical aesthetic procedures," says Dr. Ricardo Vega, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Tijuana. Injectables, lasers, and skin resurfacing can be quick, outpatient procedures, often with immediately visible effects. Making it one of the biggest trends in plastic surgery expected for 2019.

Gynecomastia (chest reduction)

Most plastic surgeons in Tijuana report a big increase in the number of men undergoing breast reduction surgery, also known as gynecomastia. According to the surgeons we have spoken with, an increase of 15 percent (in average) was reported last year.

Niche Treatments & Refined Tweaks

Small specific plastic surgery procedures to resolve minor cosmetic issues are increasing in popularity. The demand for this minioptimizations is rising. These procedures can be correcting an ear lobe from previous piercing. Patients are increasingly wanting to maintain their natural look, but with a few refined tweaks.

Tijuana is the world capital for Bariatric Surgery, thousands of patients visit the city for succesful weight loss surgeries on a daily basis. Dramatic weight loss often leads to loose skin that most people who have undergone bariatric surgery wish to remove.
