Breast Augmentation

Underdeveloped or asymmetrical breasts can affect your overall figure and make you feel self-conscious.

Breast augmentation is a customizable procedure that can help you create a new silhouette that helps you feel confident.

See how Tijuana Bariatrics in Tijuana, Mexico, can coordinate your care to improve your figure with breast augmentation.

Exploring Candidacy for Breast Augmentation

The best candidates for breast augmentation surgery meet several requirements, including:

  • Have realistic expectations
  • Are at a stable weight
  • Are in good overall health
  • Are finished having children
  • Don't use nicotine products

Your plastic surgeon can determine if you're a good candidate for breast augmentation during a consultation. During your consultation, you can discuss your concerns, goals, and medical history.

If you're approved for plastic surgery, you can schedule an appointment at Tijuana Bariatrics here in Mexico.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure WHAT TO EXPECT IN TIJUANA, MEXICO

You will first receive general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout your procedure.


Your plastic surgeon will make incisions to place the breast implants. Incisions can be made in the armpit, in the crease underneath the breast, or around the areola, so any scarring can easily be concealed.

​Breast Implant Placement

Your plastic surgeon will place your implants either under or over the pectoral muscle.


With the breast implants in position, your plastic surgeon will close your incisions with sutures.


After your procedure, your breasts will be wrapped in a special bandage. You may also be provided with a compression garment that must be worn for several days to allow your breasts to heal properly.

The Difference Between Silicone and Saline Breast Implants

All breast implants consist of a safe silicone shell, but there are two kinds of material that can be used to fill the shells.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. Many women report that their silicone implants look and feel similar to natural breast tissue. Silicone implants are more expensive than saline and can be painful if they leak or break, so you will have to regularly monitor your implants to ensure they're intact.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. These implants are more affordable and can be safely absorbed by the body if they leak or break. The main drawback to saline implants is that they tend to look and feel less natural than silicone implants.

Understanding Capsular Contracture

While the surgeons who work with our Tijuana, Mexico, bariatric surgery office offer the same quality of care as you would receive in the United States or Canada, it is important to remember that no surgery is completely risk-free. One of the risks of receiving breast implants is capsular contracture, a condition in which scar tissue contracts around the implants, leading to feelings of tightness. In severe cases, capsular contracture can cause pain and result in a distorted appearance. If you develop capsular contracture, a plastic surgeon can help identify the cause of the condition and decide on treatment options.
