Last fact-checked: 12 October 2020

Unhappy with your breast implants? Take action with a breast revision in Mexico to get you back on track. You may have decided to remove your implants for a number of reasons - perhaps you'd like to go smaller, or have a more natural look, or something may be wrong with the implant itself. Whatever the reason for your breast revision, in Mexico you can find a quality-checked surgeon at a price that’s around 50% less than at home.

When Is a Breast Revision Needed?

Breast revision surgery is carried out to address issues following a breast augmentation with implants. Sometimes, the choice of implant may be causing aesthetic or medical problems. In other cases, a patient may want to alter the size or shape of the existing implants. 

Common uses for breast revision surgery are:

  • To change the implants from silicone to saline or vice versa
  • To alter the size of the implants
  • To address leakage of one or both implants
  • To correct asymmetry in the breasts or symmastia, where the implants have merged together
  • To address capsular contracture, where the tissue has hardened around the implants causing pain
  • To fix any shift in the position of the implants

Why Go to Mexico for a Breast Revision?

Americans and Canadians discovered decades ago that Mexico was the place to come to for affordable medical and dental procedures. While the quality could not necessarily be relied upon back then, this has changed immeasurably in recent years.

Mexico is now a leading medical tourist destination, rivaling Thailand as the preferred choice for low-cost surgery.

Just as in the United States, Mexico has fully-qualified, specialist surgeons; first-rate facilities and an infrastructure to give you outstanding medical care; a personalized, professional service that is high on customer satisfaction and costs that are at least 50% lower than in the US.

Mexico is a vast country; from locations near the border, like Tijuana, to world-renowned vacation resorts such as Cancun, as well as the capital, Mexico City, you're bound to be able to find a location that suits you and your budget.

What Is the Procedure for Breast Revision in Mexico?

Breast revision surgery generally takes between one and three hours; the length of time and the actual procedure is determined by the extent of the breast revision you require.

Moving implants, manipulating scar tissue, or increasing the size of the implant will obviously take longer than a like-for-like swap of the same sized implant in the same position.

You will be given a general anesthetic for your surgery, and your surgeon will make incisions in the existing scars. After the old implant has been removed or replaced, your wound will be stitched, so that there will be no new scarring.

What Does the Recovery From Breast Revision Surgery Involve?

  • For 48 hours after surgery, you will feel very sore, but you will be given pain relief medication to help this.
  • Bruising, stiffness and swelling will also be evident, but they will begin to subside after a week or so.
  • You should be able to engage in most of your everyday activities after two weeks, and return to work – many people do so after a week.
  • Be careful stretching and bending, which causes strain to the area, and refrain from heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for several months.

What is the cost of breast revision in Mexico, compared to the United States and Canada?

Breast revision in Mexico costs, on average, $3,000. This is compared to $6,000 in the United States.
