Mexico Closes 10 Cosmetic Surgery Clinics in Border City

(Medical Xpress) – Mexican authorities have ordered the closure of 10 cosmetic surgery clinics and offices in the northwest border city of Tijuana for failing to comply with health regulations. The action, announced on Wednesday, follows the death last month of a young Australian woman after undergoing a liposuction procedure in Mexicali, another city on the US border. Three operating rooms and an intensive care center in Mexicali were closed March 30 after her death.
