Celebrating Our 22nd Anniversary!

Safe Cosmetic Surgery at 1/3 of U.S. Prices

Face Lift Mexico provides a Cosmetic Surgery Vacation from Consultation, Surgery performed in a full facility hospital to Recovery at our 4-star, private Spa Club Casa Marino in the magical mountain city of San Miguel de Allende.
We have a 100% safety record since 1994 – with over 3,200 happy patients!

I founded Face Lift Mexico in 1994, which quickly gained global respect and accolades. We are celebrating our 22st anniversary this year.

“In 1994 I had my first face lift in San Miguel de Allende. Hence, the beginning of my career as a cosmetic surgery consultant and medical facilitator… scrutinizing credentials and vetting reputations of our surgeons. My education stems from study and personal experience.”

“Ten years later I had my SMAS 10-year tune up. No surgery was performed in between 1994 and 2004. All our surgeries are performed in a full facility hospital by Dr. Guillermo Koelliker our board certified cosmetic surgery specialist with a 22 year practice history.”

flm_videosbutFace Lift Mexico has created a luxurious, private 4 STAR retreat: Spa Club Casa Marino for your post-op recovery, after your surgery is performed in the Guadalupano Hospital with a 3 night private hospital room stay depending on surgery performed. You will enjoy being treated like a “Movie Star” and being pampered by our experienced staff. Your cosmetic surgery medical vacation is planned for you… from Consultation to Recovery.

San Miguel de Allende is a 500 year old magical mountain city. A safe and trendy destination. A mere 90 minute non-stop flight from Houston, Texas, or non-stop from Los Angeles to Leon airport (BJX) where you are met by our private bilingual driver/escort who has been in our service for over 15 years.

Now celebrating our second decade, we became aware of how unaffordable spinal surgery is in the U.S. and Canada for the under-insured or for a patient with no insurance.

We are very pleased to announce that we have added a famous neurosurgeon to our team of board certified surgeons – Dr. Mario Salmon, M.D. F.A.C.S. (He specializes in the new artificial disc made in Germany by Signus called “Rotaio”).
