Breast Implant News:  Durham, NC

We’ve all heard of shortages of water and food, but in Venezuela an unpopular shortage is causing women to pay a premium for changing their body shape. According to a recent CNN article, the latest breast implant shortage in the tropical South American country is causing women to pay nearly quadruple the price of implants in the USA (the costs are associated for the implants alone and do not include fees for the plastic surgery procedure and anesthesia).  For Venezuelan women considering breast augmentation surgery or breast enhancement and rejuvenation after cancer, the choices are narrowing due to governmental financial controls. The article mentions that governmental currency controls have become more and more constricted, making it a challenge to purchase the much favored, yet more expensive implants from the United States.

At CARE Plastic Surgery:

The breast implants offered by Dr. Brian Coan at CARE Plastic Surgery in the Triangle area of North Carolina offer a lifetime replacement warranty and are manufactured in the United States (which is the preferred manufacturing location for Venezuelan Plastic Surgeons). CARE’s innovative “rapid recovery” breast augmentation procedure allows most patients to be back to work within several days. Patients should expect some swelling and soreness after the procedure, but generally subsides within days. “Everyone wants to get back to their lives quickly. Our patients are busy moms, business women, doctors, lawyers, teachers and artists.” Many patients of CARE comment how they enjoy going to dinner the same night of the procedure and are often surprised at the quickness of their recovery.
