What Is a Breast Lift?

Breast lifts are designed to help patients regain their youthful shape after pregnancy, breastfeeding or just when gravity takes its toll as we age. All these factors play their part in causing breast tissue to sag and your breasts to droop.

While a breast lift can be performed as a standalone procedure, is often performed in conjunction with a breast reduction or breast enlargement and can even be part of more extensive body lift surgery

Why Consider Breast Lift Surgery in Cancun?

Cancun provides the perfect location for a holiday. It is geared up for tourism, giving visitors a wide choice of accommodation options, bustling nightlife and, of course, those beaches.

Long a popular destination for holidaymakers from near and far, Cancun has now made a name for itself as a medical tourist destination, thanks to high-quality facilities and clinical expertise that ensure patients here always get the best quality.

Medical facilities throughout Mexico are generally of high-quality, especially those aimed at international patients, which is why many Mexican doctors opt to do further training in the United States and are members of US medical and surgical boards as well as Mexican ones.

It’s always worth doing your own research before you book an appointment for any medical procedure. Make sure the procedure you think you want is actually the one you want. It is important to remember that a breast lift will not reduce or increase the size of your breasts (although they may appear slightly bigger). 

Why Book with Medical Departures?

Assessing the quality of doctors or clinics is also something you shouldn’t overlook. Medical Departures carries out a number of important background checks on all our verified listings, including:

  • Searching criminal/legal records
  • Collating and publishing real patient reviews
  • Verifying doctor and surgeon qualifications
  • Confirming professional memberships

You can find a wealth of information on each of our listings to help you choose the right facility for your needs. Check out clinic photos, prices and location maps at these top-rated clinics in Cancun for breast lifts:

What Does the Procedure for a Breast Lift Entail?

The breast lift surgery removes loose skin and excess tissue, tightening the remaining and sometimes moving the nipple to a higher position. The skin may be removed underneath the breast, in the crease where it joins the chest wall, or around the nipples.

Surgery typically takes between one and three hours, and you will spend additional time at your facility after the procedure,  for monitoring.

What Is the Recovery Time for a Breast Lift?

Most people are able to return to work after a week, but you will feel tender and stiff for the first few days following surgery. You should be careful not to overdo things and to be gentle when bending and stretching. It will be at least six weeks before you can embark on vigorous exercise or strenuous activities.

Regarding how long you'll need to stay in Cancun before traveling home, do talk with your chosen surgeon before booking your flights. You will be advised to rest in a comfortable environment (such as a well-equipped, air-conditioned hotel room or under the shade by the pool) in Cancun for several days following your breast lift. 

How Can I Save on a Breast Lift in Cancun Compared to the United States?

One of the main reasons people travel to Cancun for breast lifts is because of the prices. Savings of more than 60% are not unusual–which is more than enough to pay for a pre-treatment holiday.
