Affordable Plastic Surgeries at World Class Hospitals in Cuba without the wait

very competitive costs of plastic surgery in CubaIn Cuba vanity medicine is on the rise as more women, and even some men, try to ward off the effects of aging. After Cuba's 1959 revolution, when hundreds of doctors fled, cosmetic surgery was seen by some as a bourgeois holdover. Then the specialty focused on reconstructive surgery for scarred burn victims or patients with disfiguring birth defects.

Times have changed and several plastic surgeons said cosmetic procedures have become increasingly popular in the past decade, even in provincial cities outside Havana. Plastic surgery clinic in Cuba gives its patients the possibility to be treated by a team of surgeons and anesthesiologists, supported by modern technology. In addition to conventional surgery, they provide advanced minimal access surgery.

The case with plastic surgery is that everybody wants to pay less for an excellent service. Cuba is a unique place where inexpensive surgery never means an unsafe and sub-standard operation however.

The cost of plastic surgery is dependent on a few factors, cost for the actual procedure, amount of work involved, medications, anesthesia, medical tests, surgical garments or other miscellaneous fees related to the surgery which have much lower costs in Cuba due to its specific economic model. Cuban surgeons are of course just as competent and skilled as the ones in the U.S., but do charge less. Many cosmetic surgeries in Cuba give better quality results than in some glamourous clinics. Many procedures cost about half of what they do in the United States. Despite a ban on American travelers to Cuba, U.S. patients rank third after Bahamians and Canadians seeking cosmetic surgery in Havana.

There is one notable cultural difference between American and Cuban patients: while more than twice as many American women seek breast augmentation over reduction, in Cuba less is more when it comes to cup size, making reductions more popular. However, the interest in breast reduction, breast lift or breast enlargement operations has significantly increased in recent years.

outstanding medical adsFat grafting, also called autologous fat transfer, has become one of the most sought after procedures in Havana hospitals serving dollar-paying foreigners. In fat grafting, fat tissue is removed from other parts of your body -- usually your thighs, belly, and buttocks -- by liposuction. The tissue is then processed into liquid and injected into the breast area to recreate the breast. In the surgical procedure, since it is a permanent one, patients prefer fat transfer injections that are becoming increasingly popular instead of silicone implants despite the last are golden standard, or a combination of the implants and fat transfer. The size of the breasts are calculated taking into account the patient's height, weight, shoulder and hip width, hip structure and in fact their profession. Patient's wishes are important but sometimes there can be a certain amount of dissolving in the breast volume with fat transfer and a second application may be needed and in some cases doctors are unable to find fat tissue to inject to patient with fit body. Cuban doctors explain that to the patient during the first meeting. Silicone implants have been used for 50 years and are now extremely safe. The operation lasts 1-1.5 hours. The patient spends one night in the hospital and goes home the next day in good enough condition to meet his own needs. Office workers can return to work in three days. A couple weeks later it is okay to start exercising and swimming.

It is a cosmetic procedure performed on both the genders who are suffering from the abrupt and continue hair loss. So it is done to nullify bald areas where hair no longer grows.
