Costa Rica's Beaches

Costa Rica is a country with an extraordinary wealth of things to do, but regardless of your travel interests, you're going to want to spend time at one of the country's great beaches. The lion's share of beach tourism is concentrated on the Pacific side, in the Central Pacific region near San José, the Nicoya Peninsula, and in the dry tropical forests of Guanacaste. Less touristed, but no less beautiful are the beaches in the tropical rainforest of the southern Pacific coast near Corcovado National Park, or on the exotic, rastafarian, eco-tourism paradise of the Caribbean side.


CR Breast Augmentation - The Plastic Surgery Procedure

The plastic surgery operation is usually done when the breast reaches its final size after puberty (ages 17-18). Except for cases when there is congenital breast hypoplasia or breast asymmetry in which it can be done earlier (local regulations in CR may be applicable).

CR breast augmentation - the implants
There are three possible areas for the insertion of an implant for augmentation. The lower fold of the breast is the most common site. It allows full excess and lives a hidden scar. The second site is through the areola. This incision gives the best esthetic results but it is also the only one that goes through the breast tissue therefore the risk of infection and sensation loss is higher. The third one is through the armpits. Some plasit surgeons prefer it because the scar is almost invisible (except for those women who like to wear open close with no sleeves(. The disadvantage of this incision is a slight asymmetry of the breast. The decision usually made individually with each woman and the plastic surgeon (consult local CR surgeons).

The augmentation implant can be inserted above or below the chest muscles. The below position considered to be more preferable by most CR surgeons. There is less chance of feeling the implant, less chance of developing irregular folds or bumps on the surface of the breast and the implant is less likely to drop. This kind of plastic surgery technique is suitable for women with relatively little extra skin and less fallen breasts.

Most of the implants are made of silicon, and since the FDA determined that they safe for use they are being widely used by most plastic surgeons in CR.

CR breast augmentation - Tip of the day:
Just wondering if anyone would like to discuss their experiences with textured implants; it's not all that popular, it seems in Canada.

CR breast augmentation - shape and size
The augmentation implants come in two shapes: round and pear shape also called "anatomic implants" because their shape resembles the natural contour of the breast. They are more expensive and require larger excision during the breast augmentation plastic surgery procedure.

The size of an implant usually depends on the woman size and proportions, the average size is 300cc. It is believed that smaller implants have lower complications.

CR breast augmentation - News update:
Following a poll of its BMJ readers about what information was most needed to improve the quality of care of patients in clinical practice, six topics were identified for inclusion in a series of BMJ articles on ‘making a difference.’ One of these topics is palliative care beyond cancer and is dealt with in two articles; the first by Scott Murray, St Columba’s professor of primary palliative care and Aziz Sheikh, professor of primary care research and development, notes that “the lessons learnt from palliative care for cancer need to be applied to other fatal conditions.” In the second article, Joanne Lynn, medical officer at the Centres for Medicare and Medicaid Services, in Baltimore states that “healthcare delivery that is tailored to the varying needs of patients with these diseases will be crucial in making a difference.” In the first article, the authors note that in 2005, long term conditions caused 47% of deaths worldwide compared with 13% due to cancer and by 2030, the annual number of deaths around the world is expected to increase from 58 million to 74 million, with conditions related to organ failure and physical and cognitive frailty responsible for most of this increase. They question why palliative care services typically still cater only for people with cancer despite these rapid demographic changes. They conclude “facilitating a good death should be recognised as a core clinical proficiency, as basic as diagnosis and treatment. Death should be managed properly, integrating technical expertise with a humanistic and ethical orientation. We also need research into how best to identify, assess, and plan the care of all patients who are sick enough to die, and we need education that keeps alive our humanity and sense of vocation. This is an enormous challenge in politicised, market driven healthcare models but one that will make an important difference to those most in need.” According to Joanne Lynn, “to live well in the time left to them, patients with fatal chronic conditions need confidence that their healthcare system ensures excellent medical diagnosis and treatment, prevention of overwhelming symptoms, continuity and comprehensiveness of care, advance care planning, patient centred decisions, and support for carers.” She believes that applying what has been learned from hospices and palliative care to other fatal chronic conditions could greatly improve the last part of life, although this entails substantial challenges. She discusses how reliable services can be ensured for everyone in the last phase of life, bearing in mind that there will be an increase in the number of sick and dying older people as the population ages, less support with shrinking family size and reduced retirement security.

CR breast augmentation - after the plastic surgery
After the augmentation plastic surgery you`ll be wearing a sports bra or a bandage. You`ll continue wearing them at all times day and night for about a month. You`ll be able to take a shower 24 hours after the plastic surgery. The most optimal results usually seen 3 month after the surgery. Several things can complicate this plastic surgery procedure; those are rare complications, which you should be aware off. Bleeding around the area of the implant, infection, disturbances of sensation and touch around the nipples, silicon leak, rejection off an implant and some degree of irregularity on the surface of an implant.
