Some patients visiting the Tijuana clinic may wish to address the shape and firmness of your breasts resulting from loss of skin elasticity, gravity, weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding. Patients who are satisfied with the volume or size of their breasts may benefit from a breast lift which will restore a more youthful breast contour. Some patients may desire an increase in breast size and fullness in addition to a lift, in these cases a breast implant in addition to a lift may be beneficial.
Patients who desire a breast reduction are usually attempting to diminish the symptoms that are caused by excessively large and heavy breasts such as neck, back, and shoulder pain. The goal of breast reduction surgery is not only to improve or eliminate these symptoms but also to improve the size and shape of the breasts.
The doctors at the Tijuana, Mexico clinic are pleased to offer the new cohesive silicone gel implants. Unlike traditional silicone or saline fillers which may leak into the body if the implant is ruptured, cohesive gel implants resist integration into the system. While cohesive silicone gel implants are not yet available in the United States, doctors in other parts of the world, including Mexico have been using them with great success.
With improvements to fat collection and processing technology available to experienced surgeons, a more natural alternative to breast augmentation is now an alternative available to appropriate candidates. A patient's own fat and accompanying stem cells can be utilized to enhance the breasts as well as perform post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. Dr. Hebert Schramm's extensive experience with stem cell transplantation has been applied to breast enhancement procedures as well.
Refined techniques are utilized to 'harvest' a patient's fat and stem cells from areas of the body with unwanted fat deposits. This harvest involves specialized liposuction techniques to collect the fat and stem cells in a gentle way to allow preservation of the viability of the cells. In other words, by performing the collection in this manner, a higher percentage of the fat cells and stem cells will remain in the areas that are transplanted. The added benefit of this procedure is the body contouring that can also be accomplished through liposuction. Studies in recent years have demonstrated the safety of this procedure as well as showing that patients can still undergo normal, standard breast screening with mammograms without interference from the fat grafts.
