Are you dissatisfied with your implants? Schedule a breast revision in Tijuana where our expert partner surgeons can remove your implants and devise a tailor-made plan to reshape and/or resize your breasts.
Over time, the results of your breast implant surgery may change for a number of reasons. This can be due to unforeseen circumstances; the choice of implant may be causing problems, or the pocket where the implant sits may have become too large.
It may also be that you have decided you just don’t want them anymore, but this is not just as simple as taking them out (unless you are swapping them for other implants of the same size).
To summarize, a breast revision can address:
It can also be used to change:
Many thousands of women have their breasts enlarged with implants every year, and for whatever reason, many choose to have them removed; this can be one month, one year or 10 years down the line. Often, the cost is a prohibitive factor – Americans and Canadians pay twice as much for their breast revision surgery at home than they would in Mexico.
Tijuana is a particularly attractive option for North Americans because it is relatively close – just over the US-Mexico border with San Diego, and is accessible easily by air or car. Not having to travel long-haul is a definite advantage for some people who would rather save on the expense, or do not want to spend too much time away from home.
As a medical tourist destination, Tijuana is one of Mexico’s most popular locations. The cost is a particular draw – and with savings of around 50% on breast revision surgery it isn’t surprising – but this isn't the only factor. The private hospitals and clinics that treat international patients are well-equipped, modern and typically of a very high standard. So too, are many of the medical and ancillary staff, who speak English, with a great number of them trained in the United States.
When traveling abroad for surgery, it is important to spend time finding the right clinic and a surgeon who meets the necessary requirements. This means checking qualifications, expertise and also finding out information about where the surgery is to be performed. All these factors will have a bearing on the type of services provided and will enable you to make a reasonable judgement if that’s what you are looking for.
Booking with Medical Departures takes the guesswork out of finding a reliable surgeon. Our background checks confirm qualifications, professional registrations and other memberships. We also perform onsite visits, taking high-definition photos and virtual video tours which you can find on our website, as well as corroborating patient testimonials and publishing these alongside all the other information.
By taking a little time to find out about your procedure and researching the medical personnel you can go for your surgery safe in the knowledge that you have chosen well.
The surgery time will depend upon the nature of your breast revision, but most surgery takes between one and three hours.
A straight swap of the same sized implant, if there are no other implant-associated problems to address, will take a lot less time than manipulating old scar tissue or changing the size of the pocket where the implants were placed.
After a consultation, the surgery gets underway after a general anesthetic has been administered rendering you unconscious. The surgeon will make incisions, usually over your existing scars, through which the old implants are removed (and new ones put in place if you are changing them).
Any adjustments, such as stitching to the pockets will be made before the wounds are stitched close.
The cost of a breast revision in Tijuana is around 50% less than it is in the United States.
