Why should I choose Cancun for breast enlargement?

Cancun is Mexico’s most popular tourist destination. In a beautiful part of the world, it is on the Riviera Maya, offering visitors spectacular coastlines to enjoy, everything you need in terms of entertainment and things to do, and, of course, the opportunity to explore the ancient Mayan culture in the ancient ruins and artefacts that are prolific in the region.

Americans and Canadians are frequent visitors to Cancun, but so too are Europeans and Aussies and Kiwis. It has a well-deserved reputation as a fantastic holiday destination and is now also held in the same high esteem in terms of medical tourism. There are a great many skilled surgeons in the area, as well as accredited Joint Commission International Facilities.

Breast enlargements are one of the most requested cosmetic surgery procedures, but we always advise that anyone looking at any form of medical treatment abroad does their own research before they book. It’s well worth giving yourself that peace of mind, and knowing all the facts will help you to do this.

Always research the actual procedure. Find out the different techniques, and weight up the pros and cons. Be prepared. If you still think it’s right for you then you can begin to look for surgeons and locations. You should check out credentials and look online for clinic photos and real patient testimonials. This is what we at Medical Departures do – and we list everything on our site so you can see for yourself. We also do onsite visits, and if we’re not happy with any aspect at all, then we don’t list.

What’s involved in the breast enlargement procedure?

Breasts can be made larger by a number of techniques. Most people use implants, but there is also a technique called autologous fat transfer. This takes unwanted fat from another part of your body by liposuction, processes and cleanses it, and reinjects it into the breasts to add volume. It is only really suitable if your breasts are small, and you only want to go up a size.

Implants are what the majority of breast enlargement patients have. Even then, there are several different types – saline, silicone and even soybean oil – so you will need to discuss the options with your surgeon beforehand, as well as the size and shape that you want to achieve.

The surgery will be done under a general anesthetic with small incisions made to create a pocket for the implant to sit. Incisions may be made under the breast where it joins the chest wall, in the armpit or around the nipple.

Once the implants are in place the incisions are stitched closed. Sometimes drains are also inserted to remove unwanted fluid from the wound, which are usually removed before you go home.

What is the recovery time from a breast enlargement?

You will feel tender and sore after surgery, and will need to wear a supportive bra for several weeks. You will need to restrict your activities to allow the breasts to heal, but can usually return to your everyday activities within a week. In fact, many patients are back in work after a week. Vigorous exercise, heavy lifting and strenuous activities should all be avoided for at least 6 weeks.

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