Why Should I Book My Breast Augmentation with Medical Departures?

Breast augmentation surgery may be straightforward, but it is surgery all the same and does carry a degree of risk. Where breasts are concerned, you don’t want to land up with breasts that you will need revision surgery for later. When you run a search you may come across many sites, but you will not really know how good or bad they are and you will be, in a way, booking blind. It's always good to do a little background research yourself by researching potential clinics and surgeons, as well as professional organizations like the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery

This is where Medical Departures comes into the picture. We have your best interests at heart so we ensure that we list only good and reliable clinics on our website. We investigate the qualifications and credentials of the doctors attached to the hospitals and clinics, the staff training and the ambiance of the place. We have a system of checks and balances in place so that is a safety factor in place for you.

What Does Breast Augmentation Surgery Entail and What Is the Downtime Required?

You will have an initial consultation with your chosen surgeon regarding the shape and size of breasts that you want. The implants come in different volume sizes and you will have to check with the doctor which kind will work for you. This will also depend on what the doctor has to work with.

Again, in consultation with the doctor, you have to decide where you want the incisions to be put as they can be in the armpits, under the breasts or around the nipples – depending on where you will be comfortable with the scars.

You will be under anesthesia (general or local) and the doctor will cut and then place the implants before suturing everything back in place once satisfied with the position of the implants.

Things to note following surgery:

  • You may stay in hospital for a night for monitoring although other patients are able to leave and head back to their hotel on the same day.
  • You may have drains and bandages in place and have to wear surgical bras for some time afterward.
  • You will need to take at least a week off from work.
  • Painkillers and antibiotics are given.
  • Expect some discomfort for several weeks; recovery takes around six weeks.
