Over time, a woman's breasts often change, losing their youthful firmness and shape. Such changes can occur as a result of gravity, aging, weight fluctuations, breastfeeding, and pregnancy.
A breast lift in Mexicali could be a great solution to help you feel more confident about your appearance, at an affordable price.
Also known as mastopexy, breast lift surgically raises and firms the breasts (rather than adding volume). This is achieved by tightening the surrounding tissue and removing excess skin to support and reshape the breasts, giving the patient a more youthful appearance.
A breast lift can also help to reduce an enlarged areola (the colored area surrounding the nipple).
In considering whether you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery, it is important to recognize that this procedure will not change the size of the breasts.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it is important to select a breast lift surgeon based on his or her certification, training, and education. Additionally, the surgeon's experience with breast lift surgery should also be considered. As such, it is certainly important to spend some time researching your options when planning a breast lift procedure.
An increasing number of North Americans are now traveling to medical destinations in Mexico to take advantage of quality healthcare, low prices, and the opportunity to relax in a sunny environment while recovering from their procedure. Mexico is a particularly popular option for travelers from the United States and Canada, as it can be reached conveniently by either driving or flying.
At Medical Departures, we are committed to recommending only those healthcare facilities and physicians we have thoroughly vetted. As part of our comprehensive quality check process, we conduct in-depth background checks that include:
Prior to undergoing a breast lift, it is important to speak to your specialist regarding your final goals. Before you go into surgery, your physician will mark the desired position on your breast where your nipple will be raised.
After being taken to the operating room, the procedure starts after general anesthesia is administered and takes effect.
During the procedure, your surgeon will remove any additional skin and lift up the breast tissue to the desired location. If the procedure is to also involve breast enlargement, implants will then be inserted. Finally, the surgeon will close the incisions with sutures and bandage your breasts. Drain tubes may be inserted in the breasts for between 24 and 48 hours.
Post-surgery, the following should be noted:
The average cost of a breast lift in Mexico is $4,000 (GBP £2,758, AUD $5,659, EUR €3,584). This is compared to $11,000 in the United States (GBP £7,585, AUD $15,563, EUR €9,857.)
