Why should I choose Cancun for breast augmentation?

Cancun offers high-quality health services at very competitive prices, and it is estimated that in 2014 around 8,000 tourists came specifically to Cancun for treatment.

For patients coming from the US and Canada in particular, it is accessible and only a short flight away. For visitors from other parts of the world, its renowned reputation as a top-class holiday destination undoubtedly holds some sway for medical tourists.

Many of the medical tourism facilities in the area are modern with state-of-the-art equipment and medical staff whose expertise and qualifications are excellent. In fact, many surgeons in Mexico opt for further training and memberships of US Boards, as well as international professional organisations.

Obviously choosing to have any cosmetic surgery is a big decision, especially if you opt to travel abroad, and should be something you take seriously – weighing up all the pros and cons. While the cost is likely to be a major factor it shouldn’t be the only one and you should check out credentials and ensure you’re happy with your choice.

We know this isn’t always easy to do when you’re in another country, which is why we’ve done the hard work already. All our listings are pre-checked. We do onsite visits, collect patient reviews, verify qualifications, confirm professional memberships and look for criminal records or legal proceedings. You will only find listings on our site where we have been satisfied that all our criteria has been met.

What happens during the breast augmentation procedure and how long is the recovery time?

Breast size can be increased by either implants, or something called autologous fat transfer, when fat is taken from one part of the body and put somewhere else (after processing and cleansing).

The fat transfer method is only really suitable if you have small breasts and only really want to go up a size – otherwise you will probably need implants. Your surgeon will discuss the options with you, and talk you through the various implants, for example, saline, silicone or something else, such as soybean oil, as well as talking through the size and shape you’d prefer.

There are various techniques your surgeon can use for the procedure with regard to where the incisions are made, which can be around the areola (the colored part of the nipple), under the armpit or underneath the breast. The implants will be inserted through the incision and the wounds stitched closed.

How long does the recovery time take for breast augmentation?

Many people who have breast augmentation are back in work within a week – the recovery time is remarkably quick. Stiffness and tenderness are normal and you will have to make sure you don’t do any heavy lifting or over-stretching for the next few weeks. Vigorous exercise should be avoided for 6 weeks.

How much does a breast augmentation cost in Cancun, compared to the United States and Canada?

The average cost of breast augmentation in Cancun is around $2,800 (GBP £2,000; AUD $4,000; €2,500) compared to $7,800 in the United States (UK £5,500; AUS $11,000, EUR €7,000)
