Breast Augmentation at the Tijuana Practice of Dr. Francisco Bucio

Breast augmentation surgery, or breast enhancement, has been performed for over 30 years on millions of women. This popular procedure allows women the chance to re-define, re-shape, and re-size their breasts. Breast augmentation, as performed by Tijuana plastic surgeon Francisco Bucio, M.D., is often ideal for women who wish to satisfy their desire for a larger bust line and improved body proportion.

As a prospective patient of Bucio Surgicenter, you can expect to be well-informed of the breast augmentation procedure prior to your surgery. Dr. Bucio understands your wish for larger, fuller breasts and he will work with you to make certain your goals are met.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

Prior to breast augmentation, Dr. Bucio will perform a breast exam, measuring your breasts and the placement of the nipples as well as taking photographs so that a thorough medical record can be completed.

Breast augmentation surgery at Dr. Bucio’s Tijuana practice will take between two and three hours to complete. During this time, you will be under local anesthesia combined with intravenous sedation to make you drowsy. Although you’ll be awake during the surgery, you will be relaxed and insensitive to pain.

During the surgery, a small incision is made under the breast, around the lower edge of the nipple or underneath the arm – depending on your wishes. Dr. Bucio then places a cohesive silicon gel implant behind the breast tissue or underneath the pectoral muscle Or in selected patients we can place it subfacial, underneath  the muscular fascial. The incision is closed, and the breast augmentation surgery is complete.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

Recovery time following breast augmentation is between four and six weeks. After a day or two, you will be able to move around, and after several days the bandages will be removed and a support bra can be used.

Common side effects of this surgery include swelling, soreness, bruising, and breast and nipple sensitivity. However, these side effects usually subside as the breasts heal.

Dr. Bucio uses the utmost care when performing breast augmentation surgery, and his Tijuana clinic employs several security measures to ensure each patient’s comfort and safety.
