Breast Reduction in Cabo San Lucas

The Ultimate Guide to Breast Reduction in Cabo San Lucas

Looking for a surgery holiday for a breast reduction? In Cabo San Lucas you’ll find the ideal location - sun, sea, sand and particularly convenient if you’re flying (or even driving) from the southern United States.

While many women dislike their small breasts, a large number are fed up of their big boobs. For them breast reduction can solve their problem. The fact is that big breasts can be annoying, cause discomfort and backache, cause you to wear over sized clothes and make it difficult to find bras to fit. The bra straps will cut into you and you will have shoulder and backache thanks to the heavy weight of the big breasts. Having big boobs can also cause psychological and emotional problems as other people may joke about them constantly.

After breast reduction surgery, you can have more normal sized breasts, conforming to your body type. Your breasts will look shapelier and you will be able to wear clothes that you otherwise had to shun. And you will have less physical and mental discomfort and also feel better about yourself. With removal of excess tissue, you will also lose weight.

Why should you consider breast reduction in Cabo San Lucas?

Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure and usually medical insurance does not cover the cost, unless you can show that you have a medically valid reason to need the surgery. Even then, you may have to pay part of the costs. When you have this surgery in Cabo San Lucas, the rates are tempting enough so that you don’t have to bother about insurance at all.

Besides, Cabo San Lucas is a beautiful, must-see holiday destination. It has good year-round climate, beaches, marinas, water sports, golf and other leisure activities. For a relaxing holiday, too, it is great place with numerous dining and entertainment options, villas, hotels, resorts and even vacation timeshares to stay in.

Why can’t you book on your own for your breast reduction surgery?

With the internet, everything seems easy enough to do with the click of a button (or several). But it is surgery you are thinking of and it is good to be wary. There are some dubious clinics as well as good ones and these may have doctors who are more concerned with making money than taking care of the health of patients. You really don’t want to fall into that trap – after all, it is your body and your health. There are a good many clinics and surgeons available - those who adhere to internationally-recognized protocols - but you do need to do some research.

How much time does breast reduction surgery take and what is the downtime associated with it?

The time taken for reduction mammoplasty surgery, as it is medically called, may vary between three and five hours. There are varying techniques the surgeon uses, depending on what kind of scars you want and how much reduction is possible with those scars. The surgeon then makes the incisions, removes the extra tissue, fat and skin and reshapes the breasts before suturing them. You may be out of the clinic after some hours if you have the surgery under local anesthesia, or you may want to stay overnight in hospital for better monitoring.

You will have bandages and drains and have pain for at least a week. You will have to sleep on your back for some time. After two weeks you should feel much better. You should plan to be off work for at least a week or 10 days. You will be more normal after six weeks, but you will still have some activity restrictions. After about two months you should be more comfortable with the shape and size of your reduced breasts.
