Breast Implants have become the most common cosmetic surgical procedure in the world. Medical Tourism in Mexico grew significantly with thousands of North Americans flocking across the border into Mexico where the lower prices do not jeopardize the quality nor the after care of such surgery. Breast Augmentation surgery can be performed for a number of reasons, the most common being that we simply want an augmentation. Breast Augmentation is usually performed with a round cohesive implant or anatomical cohesive. The difference is the shape of the implant. Round is round and the anatomical one is more like the shape of a teardrop but was initially created for breast reconstruction but is used now for breast augmentation. While those 2 are the more common implants the round cohesive shape still outsell the anatomical implant by 90%.
Implants also come in a variety of sizes and textures and of course saline or more common silicone filled implants. Saline is not as common in Mexico but it is available everywhere. Most Mexican Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons prefer the silicone because of the weight of the implant. Others do not have a preference. Textures can be smooth or textured. The smooth round cohesive silicone is the most commonly used in Mexico by preference of the patient.
The procedure itself is a 2-3 hour procedure, recovery is about 7 days post surgery to fly out if you flew in from anywhere else out of Mexico and then 4-6 weeks post surgery for the full or close to full recovery. At this point you should be able to see the final results of the surgery. Proper and modern accommodations are available throughout Mexico, most surgeons that cater to the International Medical Tourism patients are usually in bigger cities with major touristic areas.
This ensures the patient will be able to get what he or she needs without the full time use of a translator, and can enjoy some the cities attractions as a perk to the medical travel. Mexico just like in the United States offer the popular brands in implants such as Mentor Corp and Allergan the only 2 companies that have received FDA approval in the United States. The Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeons in Mexico also guarantee the Implant and you are given a Breast Implant Device card just like anywhere else. The same Pre-operatory labs are needed prior to being cleared for any surgical procedure. No reputable legal working surgeon will perform a surgical procedure on a patient without these labs. It is also the patients responsibility to provide all of the necessary medical history and proper documentation is asked for.
The surgeons should all go over all of the risk involved in any surgical procedure and must have you sign a medical waiver. It is also always advised and not necessarily only to patients traveling to Mexico for a surgical procedure that you always travel with a companion for moral support. It will help the patient recover faster and not get post surgical depression which is very common especially in women.
