Brazil Gets Credit For Helping Start Medical Tourism

Brazil originally opened up medical options for patients outside of the US! In 1999, Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein was the first outside of the US to be accredited by JCI.

Breast Implant

Breast implants are medical prosthesis containing silicone or saline, used to reconstruct or augment breasts. They can either be performed after a mastectomy or for cosmetic reasons.

In saline filled breast implants, silicone shells are filled with saline solution. In silicone implants silicone shells are filled with a plastic gel like silicone.

Women may get breast implants for a number of reasons. Some reasons are unevenness, smallness, sagging breasts, pregnancy changes, loss of volume due to weight loss and breastfeeding, etc. It is basically a cosmetic procedure, for self confidence and has little benefit outside of looking good.

The procedure will usually take two hours at the most and patients can often leave the same day.
