Breast Augmentation

Enhancement with breast augmentation can achieve excellent natural-looking results if you want to enlarge breast size or restore lost volume after weight loss or breastfeeding. This procedure involves inserting silicone or saline breast implants into the tissues of the chest.

Breast Lift

If you are experiencing a sagging and deflated breasts, then a breast lift would likely be recommended. This procedure makes the breasts firmer and perkier by removing excess sagging skin. It can also resolve shape asymmetries.

Breast Reduction

Women with excessive breast tissue often suffer chronic back, shoulder, and neck pain and find participating in certain activities uncomfortable. Excess breast tissue can lead to muscle damage and chronic joint aches and can negatively affect your quality of life.

A breast reduction reduces the weight of oversized breasts, helping them better fit your frame. The procedure involves removal of excess fatty tissue, glandular breast tissue, and skin.

How Much Do Breast Procedures Cost?

The cost of breast procedures varies depending on the specific details of your surgical plan. Anesthesia fees, total surgical time, and the exact techniques utilized can all affect the overall price. Our knowledgeable office staff is always available to answer questions regarding procedure cost and accepted forms of payment.

Breast Procedures FAQ

  1. What is the difference between breast augmentation and breast lift?

    When comparing breast augmentation vs lift, the former increases breast size using implants, enhancing volume and shape, while the latter addresses sagging by reshaping existing breast tissue for a more lifted appearance.

    Aside from the surgical differences, breast augmentation focuses on size, while a breast lift targets position and contour, resulting in different aesthetic outcomes.

  2. How long is the recovery period after breast surgery?

    The recovery time varies depending on the type of breast surgery. Generally, patients can expect a few days of downtime, with full recovery taking several weeks. Following post-surgery care guidelines and giving the body enough time to recover are crucial in the healing process.

  3. Are there any risks or potential complications associated with breast surgery?

    Like any surgery, breast procedures carry inherent risks. These may include infection, bleeding, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Understanding potential complications and adhering to safety measures outlined by Dr. Echeagaray as your surgeon can help mitigate these surgical risks.

  4. How should I prepare for breast surgery?

    Preoperative preparation is vital for a successful outcome. Patients should follow specific surgery readiness guidelines provided by the surgeon, including avoiding certain medications, arranging for post-surgery assistance, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A comprehensive pre-surgery consultation will include discussing these patient guidelines.

  5. Is it possible to get combined procedures for my breasts?

    Yes, various breast procedures can be combined to achieve a more comprehensive result. This holistic approach may include combining breast augmentation with a lift or other complementary techniques. Dr. Echeagaray will assess your goals and anatomy to determine the most suitable surgical combinations for you.

  6. What are the options for implant types in breast augmentation?

    Breast augmentation offers different implant types, so patients have to decide between silicone vs saline. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages. Silicone implants tend to feel more natural, while saline implants may be adjustable post-surgery. Your surgeon will discuss these augmentation options to help you make an informed decision.

  7. How do I go about procedure selection on which breast surgery is right for me?

    Choosing the right breast procedure requires a tailored approach. Schedule a personal consultation with a qualified surgeon who can assess your individual needs, discuss your aesthetic goals, and provide personalized recommendations. The decision-making process involves a collaborative effort between you and your surgeon.

  8. How Do I Choose the Right Size and Type of Breast Implants?

    Selecting the perfect size and type of breast implant is a crucial decision. Our expert surgeons can guide you through the process, considering your unique body type and aesthetic goals. Whether you prefer silicone or saline implants, and whether a round or teardrop shape suits you best, we tailor recommendations for an optimal outcome in breast augmentation in Mexico.

  9. Can Breast Surgery Affect My Ability to Breastfeed?

    We understand concerns about breastfeeding post-surgery. The impact of breast surgery on breastfeeding varies depending on the specific procedure. Breast augmentation surgery, in particular, may involve incisions around or through the nipple, potentially affecting milk ducts and nerves.

    On the other hand, breast reduction surgery might involve removing glandular tissue, which can impact milk production. It’s crucial to discuss your plans for breastfeeding with your surgeon during the consultation to understand potential implications and make informed decisions. Our team will discuss the potential effects of the procedure on breastfeeding, providing detailed information based on the specific procedure and techniques employed.

  10. How Long Does It Take to See Results from Breast Surgery?

    The timeline for visible results after breast surgery varies based on the type of procedure. For breast augmentation, initial changes may be noticeable shortly after surgery, but the final results become more apparent as swelling subsides over a few weeks to months. In the case of breast reduction or lift surgery, it might take several weeks for swelling and bruising to diminish, revealing the final outcome. Patience is key, and following post-operative care instructions is essential for optimal results.

  11. Will Breast Surgery Leave Scars?

    Scarring is an inherent part of any surgical procedure, but efforts are made to minimize its visibility. The extent and nature of scarring depend on factors like the type of surgery, incision technique, and individual healing characteristics. Surgeons at Echeagaray Plastic Surgery employ advanced techniques to create discreet incisions and provide post-operative care instructions to promote optimal healing and scar minimization. While some scarring is unavoidable, it typically fades over time and becomes less noticeable.

  12. How Can I Maintain My Results After Breast Surgery?

    Maintaining the results of breast surgery involves a combination of proper post-operative care and lifestyle choices. Follow your surgeon’s recommendations for recovery, including restrictions on physical activities during the initial healing period. Wearing supportive bras as advised, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and avoiding significant weight fluctuations can contribute to long-term satisfaction with the results. Regular follow-up appointments with your surgeon allow for ongoing assessment and guidance to ensure the longevity of your enhanced appearance.
