Am I suitable for breast augmentation?

There may be one, or a myriad of reasons for wanting to increase the size of your breasts. You may think they are too small, or it could be that post-pregnancy – or after massive weight loss – that your breasts have lost their fullness, or you may consider breast enlargement as part of a reconstruction after something like mastectomy.

If you are generally in good health, and have a reasonable outlook as to what you want to achieve, then breast augmentation is an option.

Why should I choose Tijuana for breast augmentation?

Mexico has long been a popular destination for North Americans to travel to for affordable and safe healthcare alternatives. From dentistry to hip replacements and weight loss surgery to fertility treatments, Mexico offers medial tourists highly-specialist physicians and specialists across the country.

Tijuana’s location on the US-Mexico border is easily accessible, particularly for residents from the southern US states, and has seen a great influx of medical tourists to its ever-expanding facilities. Rising costs and waiting times over the border has facilitated the growth in medical tourists to Tijuana, where prices are significantly lower and waiting times non-existent.

However, this isn’t the whole story. Medical tourists are also looking for quality, both in terms of the expertise of the medical staff as well as the facilities. Tijuana offers excellent medical personnel, many who have trained in North America and private healthcare facilities that are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and as good as any over the Border.

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

The surgery typically takes between 1 and 2 hours, and the increase in breast size can either be reached with implants or by taking fat from another part of the body by liposuction and after cleansing and processing it, implanting it into the breasts.

There are various techniques for breast implants, and the method employed will be discussed with you prior to the operation. After your anesthetic, incisions will be made either around the areola (the pigmented area around the nipple), under the armpit or underneath the breast so that the implants can be inserted, either under or over the pectoral muscle. The incisions are stitched closed and the area bandaged while healing takes place.

How long does the recovery time take for breast augmentation?

Compared to other cosmetic surgeries, breast augmentation is reasonably quick – with many people going back to work after a week. You will, of course, be stiff, sore and bruised for a few days after the surgery and you will have to take it easy – no lifting or stretching too much. Over the following weeks you will feel better, but will need to avoid vigorous exercise and heavy lifting for 6 weeks.
