This surgery consists of three procedures, a belt lipectomy, a breast lift, and breast implants. Belt lipectomy is indicated to patients who have had a significant loss of weight due to gastric-banding or stomach bypass surgery or (less often) as a result of successful dieting and exercise. When the amount of loose skin is very large, especially when the excess is circumferential (circular) in nature involving the belly, hips, back, buttocks, and outer thighs, plastic surgeons choose this extensive plastic surgery to remove this circumferential truncal excess. Breast lift is officially called a mastopexy, this procedure removes excess skin in order to lift up sagging or drooping breasts. Breast augmentation is a procedure typically performed to enlarge small breasts, underdeveloped breasts or breasts that have decreased in size after a woman has had children. It is accomplished by surgically inserting an implant behind each breast. An incision is made either under the breast, around the areola (the pink skin surrounding the nipple) or in the armpit. A pocket is created for the implant either behind the breast tissue or behind the muscle between the breast and the chest wall.
Costs include transportation (airport pick up / drop), 2 days of hospitalization in a private room, 8-9 hours of surgery at the Specialized Surgical Unit, general anesthesia, surgical team fees, consumables, nursing care. Accurate estimates for care shall be provided when the patient has been thoroughly examined by the physician after admission.
