Breast reduction in Mexico offers women (and men) a cost-effective solution to a problem that may be for aesthetic reasons, but also because your size might be uncomfortable, painful or just embarrassing.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons there are more than 90,000 breast reduction procedures in the USA alone in a year – that’s an awful lot of people unhappy with their large breasts. However, you no longer have to endure breasts that are too large or of different sizes, and if you thought breast reduction surgery was too expensive, traveling to Mexico may be the answer you can afford.
Breast reduction is often done in conjunction with a breast lift, so that your smaller breasts are lifted into a higher, and more youthful position.
Mexico’s variety of destinations should offer something for everyone – whether you fancy some time on the beach, in the mountains or taking it easy in one of the country’s many old-Colonial towns and cities. Visitors from the US and Canada, in particular, find it accessible without the hassle of a long-haul flight that they would have to endure by going to another continent.
The most important decision to make when you are thinking of traveling abroad for medical care is the quality of the facilities. Mexico may well be considered as an emerging economy but it is one of the world’s most popular destinations for medical tourism.
In part, this is because it has always attracted visitors from over the border in search of a bargain – with medical, dental and pharmaceutical services being no exception. However, with international travel now affordable and commonplace for the masses, visitors from much further afield are coming here because not only are the costs significantly lower than at home, but the quality of Mexico’s healthcare is very good to excellent.
While this is generally good news, we cannot stress how important it is to do some research into your breast reduction procedure, as well as any prospective surgeons or clinics you have identified in Mexico. There are bogus operators everywhere in the world, not just Mexico, and there are steps you should take to ensure you don’t fall victim to one of them.
This is not always easy to do, which is why we perform background checks on our clinics and doctors, verifying qualifications, professional memberships and experience, as well as publishing clinic photos, virtual tours and real patient reviews on our website. No medical procedure can be guaranteed 100% anywhere in the world, but you can minimize the risk of anything untoward happening by making sure you go to a reliably qualified surgeon in the first place.
Breast reduction surgery typically takes between 1.5 and 3 hours to complete, although it depends on how much tissue needs to be removed. Sometimes the process is quicker if there are two surgeons working – one on each breast.
Your stitches will be removed after about 10 days but it usually takes at least 2-3 weeks before the swelling has subsided substantially. You will be quite sore but most people return to work in an average of 10 days. You will have to be mindful not to do anything too strenuous for at least 6 weeks, and especially no heavy lifting. It could take up to 6 months before you are fully healed inside and out.
Costs vary widely. However, the average price of a breast reduction in Mexico costs around $2,500 compared to $6,000 in the United States.
