Patients who want larger breasts with improved projection and symmetry can benefit from a breast augmentation procedure. Learn more about what a breast augmentation in Mexico can do for you when you contact Echeagaray Plastic Surgery.
Breast Augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, improves the size and appearance of the breasts by implanting saline or silicone implants if applicable (the use of gel-filled implants may be government regulated) either under or over the chest muscle, thus producing a cosmetic enhancement.
Ideal Breast Augmentation Candidates:
Patients who want to enlarge their breasts with the help of implants are ideal candidates for a breast augmentation. The best candidates have realistic expectations and are in good overall health.
If you are still recovering from a recent injury or surgical procedure, you must wait until recovery is complete before undergoing augmentation mammoplasty. Smokers must quit for several weeks before surgery and must continue to avoid smoking while they heal.
Before patients can get a breast augmentation, they will first need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jorge Echeagaray. This will help patients better understand what the procedure will involve and what they can expect from it.
Dr. Echeagaray will discuss the patient’s health and medical records with them, and a physical examination will be performed. Photographs may be taken for reference.
The patient will tell the doctor about their aesthetic goals for the procedure. Patients can have all of their questions regarding the procedure addressed at this time. The doctor will discuss preparation and aftercare steps.
The breast augmentation procedure takes approximately two hours to complete.
General anesthesia is administered and the patient is completely asleep, or intravenous sedation is used, combined with local anesthesia.
Either – depending on the patient’s doctor’s decisions.
Possible Side Effects:
Mild, temporary discomfort, mild to moderate swelling, a change in nipple sensation (either more or less), and temporary bruising. Breasts may be sensitive to stimulation for a few weeks.
The implants may need to be removed and/or replaced to treat problems including deflation, implant rupture, and the formation of scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture), which may cause the breast to feel tight or hard, bleeding, and/or infection. Other risks are an increase or decrease in sensitivity of the nipples or breast skin, which occasionally may be permanent.
The patient can return to work within a few days. She should avoid any physical contact with her breasts (excluding her bra) for approximately three to four weeks. Scars should fade and flatten anywhere from three months to two years after surgery, depending upon how an individual heals.
The outcome varies from patient to patient. However, the overall effect is the enhancement of breast size for improved appearance.
How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?
The cost of a Breast Augmentation varies, because it is a highly individualized surgery tailored for each patient. The overall price may include anesthesia, operating room facilities, new breast implants, and other related expenses. Additional tests and imaging may also add to your total.
