Everything You Need To Know About Breast Augmentation In The Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is not just a beautiful holiday destination in the Caribbean, in the last few years; it has gained a reputation as a plastic surgery mecca. One of the most sought-after procedures is Breast Augmentation, which is very affordable when compared to other countries.

Learn all about breast augmentation

If you are considering having a breast augmentation, you will need to spend some time preparing. It is very important to learn as much as you can about breast augmentation and to get a thorough understanding. Do not stop with a Google search, you should talk to friends, talk to your local doctor, and look for a referral from a satisfied patient. This information may include the preparation, the procedure, the anesthetic, and the differences between implants, aftercare, recovery, risks, and complications. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a successful procedure and your expectations are met.

  • Before surgery, you will need to stop smoking, stop taking alcohol or drugs, and maintain a healthy diet.
  • Knowing about the complications, recovery, and side effects will help you identify if something is wrong, so you can seek help immediately.
  • You can find out if you are a good candidate for a breast augmentation. If you have any condition that may complicate the procedure, then it is best not to go through with the procedure and to consider other alternatives.
  • Any type of surgery always has a potential risk even under the safest conditions. By learning about Breast Augmentation, you can evaluate all the possible risks and consider the worst-case scenario. For instance, you can plan to stay in the Dominican Republic for more than two weeks because flying right after your surgery can increase your risk of developing a blood clot.

Ask questions

Do not be afraid (or embarrassed) to ask questions as it can help ensure your safety and help you to get better results. Once you have selected a medical center in the Dominican Republic, ask your surgeon questions. You should also meet with your anesthesiologist before the day of your surgery so you can provide information that will help determine the right anesthesia care plan for you. Additionally, you will need to ensure that your surgeon is fully aware of your health history. If you want to combine your breast augmentation with a holiday, check with your surgeon what you should do to avoid complications.

Find out if your surgeon and the medical center are accredited or certified

It is much harder to research a surgeon’s background, qualifications, records, and the safety of a clinic in another country, but it is vital for you to check that your surgeon and clinic has the expertise and experience. Look for surgeons with who are accredited by an organization such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) and The American Society of Plastic Surgeon. These organizations have high standards when it comes to training, certification, continuing medical education, and hospital privileges. They also allow international members to join. Alternatively, you can ask your surgeon directly about their experience and credentials. If they cannot show you any official document or you have any doubt about their validity, it is best to look elsewhere. Besides the surgeon, you should also find out if the medical center is regulated. Just like the surgeons, your hospitals need to be accredited by well-known organizations such as IPRAS, ISAPS, or JCI.
