Breast Augmentation in Puerto Vallarta

The Ultimate Guide to Breast Augmentation in Puerto Vallarta

Get a Breast augmentation in Puerto Vallarta and enjoy a pre and post surgery holiday in this fabulous Mexican location.

If you are naturally very thin or you have a genetic predisposition, your breasts may be boyish, giving you an androgynous look. Or your breasts may have lost volume after childbirth and breastfeeding. This aesthetic procedure can also make the breasts more symmetrical. Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty as it is medically called, can give you volume and increase the size of the breasts so that they are proportionate to your body.

This cosmetic surgery is done using implants that may be made of silicon or saline, giving a more natural feel. You can select the size and shape of the breasts in consultation with the plastic surgeon that will do the procedure. Normally, implants come in different sizes depending on volume in ccs. You must talk to the doctor if you plan on breast feeding later so that he or she can allow for it to happen.

Why consider breast augmentation in Puerto Vallarta?

Puerto Vallarta is a prime holiday destination, home to a huge floating population of tourists that come from all over the world but more so from the U.S. and Canada. It is also home to expats and retirees who favor the low cost of living and great climate, apart from the cheaper medicines and medical care. You can get breast augmentation done at clinics and hospitals with an excellent standard of medical facilities.

As a holiday destination you will find lots to do and see in PV apart from beaches, blue waters, water based activities and innumerable food, dining and entertainment options. You can go a few days before your surgery and take in the sights and then stay on for some time without the stress of taking care of the home and work and away from the daily grind.

Why can’t you simply book on your own?

Breast augmentation surgery is considered a major operation. You really don’t want to take a risk with any kind of major surgery or go to doctors who may not be well qualified or have the appropriate credentials. 

When you book through Medical Departures you can be certain that we have your safety and well being in mind. We always carry out a thorough investigation of the training, qualifications and credentials of the doctors, the skill and expertise of the other staff and make sure that the equipment technology used in the hospital if of a high standard. If any of these criteria are not met, we don’t list the clinic on our website. You can check out doctor qualifications, professional memberships and other credentials on our clinic listings pages.

How much time does breast augmentation take and what is the recovery period?

Normally the time taken for augmentation mammoplasty will be two to three hours. The surgeon will make incisions as pre-decided. These can be

Inframmamary – this is done with the cut under the breast, in the fold. It is ideal for women who have had children.
Trans-axillary – the cuts are in the armpit and the implants can be placed subglandular or submuscular. The scars are hidden in the armpit.
Trans-umbilical – this implant is done through the belly button with the help of an endoscope. Using this method only subglandular implant is possible. This method has no visible scarring.
Peri-areolar – this surgery is done by cutting around the nipple. While this leads to some scarring, it is also not recommended for women who still want to breast feed at a later time.

Sometimes breast augmentation may be done by using fat which has been removed via liposuction from another part of the body. However, this method is limited in scope since it can increase the breast by only about one size. Fat transfer is also not possible in cases of reconstructive surgery post cancer or other disease.

You will need a minimum of a week to recover, two weeks if you had a more extensive procedure. After two weeks you should be back to normal though certain activity restrictions will be in place for six weeks.

What is the cost of breast augmentation in Puerto Vallarta?

In the U.S. and Canada you can expect to pay between US$ 6,000 and US$ 10,000 for breast augmentation. In PV you can get the surgery done at really low prices ranging from US$ 3,600 upwards.
