Breast Augmentation Surgery
More American women choose to travel for breast augmentation surgery than any other cosmetic surgery. It ranks as the number one procedure in medical tourism, above nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, and liposuction.
Because of the sheer number of breast implant surgeries performed every year, breast implant surgery has become a routine procedure. While like any surgical procedure it has some risk, it is considered a safe surgery as long as it is performed by a competent surgeon.
Before deciding to get breast augmentation surgery in Puerto Rico, there are some factors that a woman should consider:
Why Are you Having the Surgery?
We live in a culture that emphasizes breasts, particularly larger breasts. You see them glorified in all forms of media. It’s not for us to say whether that’s right or wrong, but we strongly encourage women to think thoroughly about why they want to have breast augmentation. Is it something that you truly want, or are you simply feeling pressured by the images that surround you?
We firmly believe that a woman should get breast augmentation only if she really wants it and believes it will make her look better and feel better about herself. She shouldn’t get it because a partner is pressuring her to get it or because she’s trying to meet a standard that the media has created.
Medical Reasons Not to Get Breast Augmentation
There are some cases where breast augmentation is not possible or highly risky for medical reasons. A doctor can evaluate you and tell you if you’re a candidate for breast augmentation. Some common reasons that prevent women from getting breast augmentation are:
- Additional children and future breastfeeding
- Cancer treatment
- Low functioning immune system

Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast Reduction Surgery also known as reduction mammoplasty is a procedure that reduces the size of the breasts and often includes repositioning it on the chest, in order to place it in a higher and more aesthetically pleasing position. The procedure uses small incisions which leave only small scars and creates breasts with a more attractive and youthful appearance.
Overly large breasts can cause some women to have both health and emotional problems. In addition to negative self-image issues, some women experience physical pain and discomfort due to large breasts.
The weight of excess breast tissue may impair your ability to lead an active life. However, the emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large pendulous breasts is often as important to many women as the physical discomfort and pain.
Breast reduction is a good option for you if:
- You are healthy
- You have reasonable expectations
- You are a non-smoker
- You feel that your breasts are too large
- Your breasts limit your ability to be physically active
- You experience back, neck or shoulder pain from the weight of your breasts
- You have marks from bra straps that support heavy breasts
- You have skin irritation beneath the breasts
- Your breasts hang low and show stretched skin
- Your nipples rest below the breast crease
- You have enlarged areolas caused by stretched skin
