Looking at affordable options for Breast reduction? In Mexico City Medical Departures can help you find good quality surgeons and clinics to help you achieve your goals, whether it’s for cosmetic or health reasons.

Am I suitable for breast reduction in Mexico City?

A woman may be considering a breast reduction if she has excessive physical discomfort as a result of her large breasts, which includes, but is not limited to having severe backache, skin irritation, pain in the neck, poor posture, grooves developing on the shoulders as a result of bra straps sinking into the skin, being unable to take part in various sports activities or exercise properly.

In addition to this, some women also complain of undergoing a lot of psychological distress as a result of having large breasts, since they are not able to take part in daily life exercises, such as jogging or running, and are unable to take part in all the latest fashion trends. In addition to this, this distress may also be worsened as a result of harassment that women with large breasts may have had to face due to unwanted attention from members of the opposite sex and even the same sex, as well as depression.

When determining whether or not a woman is eligible to undergo this procedure, the doctor may look at various factors, such as the size of the woman’s breasts, her weight and whether or not she is a smoker.

Why should I get a breast reduction in Mexico City?

Traveling to Mexico City for a breast reduction offers great cost savings - even including flights and accommodation charges for the duration of your stay, you are still more than likely going to keep more money in your pocket.

For Americans and Canadians especially, short flight times at reasonable prices is also a huge advantage, plus you get to have a holiday or break in Mexico’s capital city.

As for the quality and standards then you need not worry if you book with Medical Departures. The standards in Mexico are generally good with clinics meeting internationally recognized standards and surgeons who are certificated, many with memberships of international professional organizations, like ISAPS.

At Medical Departures, we ensure that all medical providers we list on our website undergo a thorough background check before they are considered eligible, which means that everything that would be relevant to a patient is screened in advance, such as their legal and professional backgrounds, as well as the authenticity of their academic degrees and certificates.

What happens during the procedure?

As in most cases, if the breast reduction surgery is carried out on both breasts, then the entire process is carried out under general anaesthesia and it can take from two to four hours. The patient is advised to stay at the hospital for a day or two following the procedure.

The procedure itself can span out in different ways depending upon which technique the surgeon wishes to use. However, the method that is chosen for the procedure usually depends on the size of the woman’s breasts and the ultimate results that she is after.

What is the recovery time period?

In general, women are advised to rest for an additional two to six weeks after the surgical procedure, but the variation in this recovery time period is due to the difference from patient to patient. The age of the patient and how fit she is generally go a long way in determining how quickly she is going to recover from this surgery. Women who are younger in age and who are otherwise medically and physically fit are likely to recover much faster from the procedure compared to those who are older or have other medical complications at the same time.

In addition to this, women undergoing this surgery can also expect to feel a soreness in their breasts for a couple of weeks after the procedure.

Women undergoing a breast reduction surgery are also advised to remember that it can take several week or even a couple of months for the final results of the surgical procedure to become obvious.
