If you decide to have a surgery out of your country , do your medical research very well , in Mexico there is an association that control us . Please questions them about the certificates of the doctors you choose.

Safe to Have Plastic Surgery in Tijuana Mexico Vs USA?
I think that you are asking a question that is far too general to answer with any accuracy. In other words, I'm sure there are “safe” places to have surgery in Tijuana and unsafe places to have surgery in the United States ( and vice versa).The fact that you are asking the question leads me to think that you have reasons to be concerned...
In regards to selecting a plastic surgeon, I would suggest that you with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons. Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.
You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
I would also suggest that you do not base your selection of plastic surgeon primarily on costs of surgery; keep in mind that revisionary surgery may be more costly in many ways.

Surgery in Mexico
I don't know why you would go to Mexico to have surgery when there are plenty if excellent surgeons in San Diego. You may save a little money, but think of the hassles. Traveling, hotel rooms, and most of all having to return if you need revisions of any kind. Not to mention peace of mind.
Safe to have surgery in Tijuana, Mexico? #breastimplant
You seem conflicted by your question. The most important thing is that you choose a board certified surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. You can find a list of surgeons on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery websites. What you need to know is that you have good and bad surgeons all over the world. Being that said, when patients are looking to go abroad for surgery it is usually because they are seeking cheaper surgery. You never want to cut corners with cost. Revision surgery can cost you even more at the end of the day. So, weigh your options, and your reasons for why you ask this question. If this was your family or child would you want them to seek cheap surgery or go to the best surgeon possible no matter what the cost?
Is it safe to have surgery in Mexico vs USA
NO! Can it be safe, potentially. You asked relative to the USA. The training, regulatory, sterility, and accreditation requirements are different. If you did not have to pay for your surgery out of your own pocket would you ever consider going to Mexico for your surgery? Please understand that there are excellent world renowned plastic surgeons in Mexico, but even the best surgeons have complications. What will you do then?
