The number travelling to Mexico every year to undergo a hair transplant has been steadily increasing. This shouldn’t come as a surprise though, as Mexico boasts experienced surgeons and state-of-the-art facilities, both of which are offered at an affordable price. As a consequence, hair transplants in Mexico have become one of the most popular options for the treatment, especially amongst patients travelling from the US and Canada. Unlike many American clinics, Mexican facilities have virtually no waiting lists, and hair transplant costs in Mexico for treatment, prescriptions, and aftercare medicines are far lower than their Northern American counterparts.
Hair Transplants in Tijuana
When it comes to hair transplants in Mexico, the vibrant city of Tijuana is one of the most sought after destinations for those looking to regain a lustrous head of hair. The city is renowned for having the most frequently crossed border in the world.
Tijuana is home to more than 1.6 million inhabitants and has grown from a small border town into a large, modern city. Tijuana’s eccentric nightlife, tasty food, and close vicinity to the US border make it a very desirable destination, however, it’s the high-quality — yet affordable — treatment that serves as the main draw for potential patients. The city has benefited from a revamp of many urban areas like Zona Rìo, where a vibrant art scene is on the rise, and new fancy cafès and restaurants pop up around every corner. Below, we’ve laid out four great reasons as to why this city is the perfect companion on your hair transplant journey.
1. Conveniently Located
Tijuana lies immediately south of the US. Being just a 20-minute drive away from San Diego and two hours from Los Angeles, the city represents a popular tourist destination, especially for day-trippers. If you decide to fly there, Tijuana International Airport is just six miles away from the city center.
2. An Easy City Break
Tijuana’s proximity to the border and the ability to enter the country without a visa makes it easy for US citizens to undergo their hair transplant in Mexico. Many patients living just across the border arrange their doctor appointments to coincide with a few days break in Baja, and spend some extra time relaxing on Rosarito beach, or enjoy mouthwatering seawood in Ensenada.
3. Foodie Paradise
The favorable weather conditions and the many cultural influences of people migrating here during the past decades — Spanish, Italian, and Argentinian, just to name a few — has culminated into amazing flavor combinations. From tacos to mariscos and handmade tortillas, food lovers are spoilt for choice.
4. Extravagant Nightlife
Along the main tourist street, Avenida Revoluciòn, you can find several restaurants and cafès as well as many shops and nightclubs. If you want to go off the beaten path, you can find hip bars and newly-opened breweries around Plaza Fiesta or La Revo.
