Medical tourism is clearly on the rise in Mexico, and government officials are paying close attention. According to an announcement made by the Mexican Health Ministry in 2015, the government is ready to start actively supporting the medical tourism industry due to its substantial contribution to the national economy. This means that American, Canadian and European patients who arrive in Mexico in search of breast augmentation procedures can rest assured that local health officials are interested in guaranteeing their safety and the quality of the care they receive. Proper accreditation and affordable prices are not enough; the government believes that medical tourists should also feel that officials are watching over their well-being.
American women have been flocking to Mexico for breast augmentation since the 1980s, which is when Hispanic television networks such as Univision and Telemundo began broadcasting Latin American novelas. Once North American women realized that feminine beauty is a very important part of Latin American culture, they started going south of the border for cosmetic procedures.
Medical tourism clinics in Mexico cater to North American sensibilities in the sense that they are staffed by bilingual health professionals who attended medical schools in Canada and the U.S. Moreover, many clinics obtain international certification so that they meet the highest standards of care for their patients who visit from abroad. Cosmetic surgery clinics in Mexico are known to coordinate medical tourism details such as lodging, meals, transportation, and even vacation activities for their patients.
