What is Breast Augmentation?

A breast augmentation is the use of silicon or saline cosmetic implants to add volume, shape, and symmetry to the breasts.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The following characteristics are those of an ideal candidate, but a plastic surgeon will be able to let you know if breast augmentation is appropriate for your unique situation.

Good Overall Health
Chronic conditions including restricted blood flow, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and a compromised immune system can limit healing and be contraindications for a breast augmentation procedure.

Realistic Expectations
Plastic surgery is as much an art as a science and patients must realize that while they can expect an improvement in targeted areas, results will not be perfect.

Not Smoking
Tobacco use reduces the body’s ability to heal after surgery.

What is the Plan?

Choose a Physician

Choosing your doctor is an important decision, but it does not have to be a difficult one. Physicians associated with Apollo Medical Travel are highly respected in the field and you can see all of their qualifications and experience in their profile.

Book an Appointment

Before your arrival, your doctor will provide you with a virtual consultation and ensure that you are all set for your procedure.

Book Your Travel and Lodging

A rep from Apollo Medical Travel will contact you shortly after you have confirmed your appointment. We can help you find beautiful accommodations at a great price close to where you will be getting your procedure and arrange for your airport pick up.


Breast Augmentation is performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Inconspicuous incisions will be made to allow for the insertion and placement of the implants. The incisions will then be closed with sutures.

Immediately Following Procedure

You will be given a breast band and compression bra to reduce swelling and bruising. Your physician will provide recovery instructions and you will be prescribed pain medications.

4-7 Days

You will typically be able to return to work and light activities and you will notice your swelling and bruising begin to heal.

After Returning Home

We recommend that you see your healthcare provider as soon as possible after you get home. Though complications are rare, every surgery carries risk and it is important to ensure that your body is recovering properly!

2-3 Weeks

At this point you will be able to resume light physical activity, but you should avoid all chest and upper body exercises.

4-6 Weeks

You will be able to resume your daily routine and exercise normally.

Every surgery carries a risk of complications. Your physician will explain the risks of your specific procedure in your consultation and ensure that you are an appropriate candidate for surgery.

Medical tourism also carries specific risks including the elevated risk of blood clots forming during air travel. This risk is mitigated but not eliminated by following the appropriate recovery protocols prescribed by your physician in your destination country.

Furthermore, medical travel carries the risk of exposure to antimicrobial resistant organisms that may be less common in the United States. This risk is mitigated but not eliminated by your physicians infection prevention and control measures and medication prescribed following your procedure as appropriate.

Lastly, medical travel carries the risk that continuity of care will be disrupted. Apollo Medical Travel will help you mitigate this risk by ensuring the appropriate medical paperwork reaches your overseas provider and that your hometown physician receives the appropriate medical documentation to properly give you follow up care.
