When should I consider a breast reduction?

Breast reduction may be a consideration if the size of your breasts cause pain in your back, neck or shoulders, or if the weight makes wearing a bra uncomfortable as the straps dig in. You may also be embarrassed by their size and find it difficult to buy clothes that fit.

Breast reduction surgery is also available for men who suffer with a condition called gynaecomastia, where breast tissue enlarges abnormally.

Why should I get a breast reduction in Tijuana?

When looking at cosmetic surgery options, we can’t stress enough the importance of finding reliable surgeons and facilities. Medical Departures only partners with providers that meet our strict criteria, and we have a 4 stage process that determines whether they will be listed on our website. These include:

• Onsite visits
• Verification of doctor qualifications, professional registrations and affiliated memberships, such as international organizations
• Legal/criminal proceedings checks
• Online reputation

When you have surgery, it can never be guaranteed completely, but ensuring you have done all the checks you can to establish reliability is a good enough start.

We have generally found that clinics in Mexico offering services to international patients meet high standards. Facilities are often new and modern, equipped with the latest technological advances and staffed with medical and ancillary teams who are professional, conscientious and above-all well-qualified. This is particularly true of metropolitan areas like Tijuana, as these locations are popular with international patients in terms of accessibility and the additional services and amenities that foreign visitors would expect.

What will happen during the breast reduction procedure?

The surgery may be done as an out-patient, or you may need to stay in the hospital overnight. In both cases, you will be given general anesthesia to put you to sleep during the operation.

Incisions will be made around the nipple and down the breast which forms an opening to remove the breast tissue and fat. The loose skin will then be removed, your nipple repositioned and the incisions stitched closed. You will be wrapped in surgical bandages and you may need to wear a surgical bra to help the healing process.

The surgery takes, on average, around 3 hours, but it may take longer.

How long is the recovery time after breast reduction surgery?

For a few days after surgery you will feel sore and stiff, and you may feel tired. You will be given painkillers to help with the discomfort. You will experience some swelling and bruising. After a few days you should begin to feel a little better each day, but you should take it slowly and not do anything to strenuous. You should be engaging in your everyday activities within 2 weeks, but it will take 6 weeks before you can embark on vigorous exercise or heavy lifting.

The scars will fade to pink and then to white after about a year.
