Breast enlargement, technically referred to as mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure which increases the size of the breasts. There are two ways to increase the size: by placing implants, either under the breast tissue or chest muscles, or by transferring fat via liposuction from other parts of the body.

There are a number of reasons why you may want to get breast enlargement surgery. It can be cosmetic; to help increase self-esteem and boost confidence; and it can be for medical necessity such as breast reconstruction after a mastectomy.

Why get a breast enlargement surgery from Mexico City?

While Mexico City has an historic centre, it has up-to-date facilities and every modern convenience tourists and medical tourists alike would require - all on the doorstep. Recovery time from a breast enlargement is not usually too bad, providing you move gingerly!. There’s always the option of staying under a parasol by the hotel pool if you’d prefer to stay put, and you’ll find a lot of decent hotels at great prices to suit.

Mexico is experiencing a boom in terms of medical tourists, with internationally accredited hospitals as well as Mexico’s Federal Ministry of Health certificated hospitals - the majority of which are equivalent to international standards.

Being the country’s capital, you’d expect Mexico City has a good share of world-class medical facilities - and it does - alongside doctors who are fully qualified and experts in their fields. Many doctors who treat international patients tend to have US qualification as well as Mexican, as well as international affiliations with professional organizations such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

When you book surgery abroad it’s always wise to do some research. With Medical Departures, we perform thorough background checks on qualifications, professional memberships, safety standards, and criminal records. While also taking into account real patient reviews and personally visiting the facilities, we only recommend doctors and facilities that have passed all our tests.

What does this procedure involve?

Because breast enlargement surgery is a big change, no matter the reason for getting it, it is very important to discuss with your doctor what your expectations are regarding size and shape of the breasts you want.

There a few precautions that you are required to take before you can sit down for surgery. If you’re a smoker your doctor will ask you to quit smoking at least a couple of weeks before the surgery. Aspirin and other blood thinning medicines should also not be consumed before surgery to reduce risk of blood loss.

The surgery is mostly done under general anaesthesia, but in some cases local anaesthesia might be administered. An overnight stay is usually not required at the hospital and you can expect to go home the same day.

To insert the implant, your doctor will make an incision in one of these three ways:

  • Under the breast, from the breast crease,
  • Under the arm
  • Around the areola/nipple

When the incision is made, a pocket is made between the breast tissue and muscle. This is where the breast implant is placed. There are basically two types of implants that are used in breast enlargement surgery:
Saline Implants, which are inserted empty and then filled with salt water
Silicone implants, which come pre-filled with silicone gel

For women who use the option for enlargement by fat transfer, they should keep in mind that this option is used when only a slight increase in breast size is desired.

What is the recovery time?

For the first few weeks, your breasts will be swollen and sore, and your doctor will provide care guidelines which are very important to follow. Right after the surgery, you will be given a compression bandage to wear around your breasts to retain their new shape. Tubes are usually places in the incision marks to drain any excess blood and fluid. You can expect the tubes to be removed within a couple of days. If you experience pain, then your doctor can prescribe you pain medication for relief. The scars from this surgery will not completely disappear but they will soften over time.

Before you can resume regular activities such as bathing and showering, it is important to discuss with your doctor when it will be safe to do so. Usually, you can resume your job within a week after surgery if your job is not physically demanding. It is also advised to avoid any strenuous activities which will raise your blood pressure and pulse for a minimum of fourteen days. You also have to be very careful about getting an infection; if you notice redness around your incision marks and you are also running a high fever then contact your doctor immediately.

What are the risks of breast enlargement surgery?

Before any surgery, it is very important to discuss the risks attached to it with your doctor so you can decide whether you are up to taking care of those risks. As with any other surgery, you will be asked to sign a consent form, which states that you fully understand all the risks and complications of the surgery.

The risks of breast enlargement surgery are:

  • Anaesthesia risks
  • Scar tissue distorting the shape of the implant
  • Wrong or faulty position of implant
  • Breast pain
  • Infection
  • Changes in nipple and breast sensation
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Implant leakage or rupture
  • Additional surgery to correct defects from first surgery
