As you may already be aware, Bangkok is the global hub for all forms of cosmetic plastic surgery, and it is the perfect place to find a state-of-the-art plastic surgery clinic with the very best surgeons. A vast majority of patients wish to have their breasts enlarged, as Asian women do have proportionately small breasts, and with implant technology, they can achieve the perfect size and shape.
Types of implant
There are several options with breast implants, one is a saline solution that is inside a double-sealed bag, which gives a uniform feel, and the most popular is a silicone gel, as this closely resembles the natural movement of tissue. Even with silicone implants, there are variations and the surgeon would make these available during your initial consultation.
The incisions can be made in the armpit, which is the most common procedure, while another is to make the incision under the breast, at the fold or crease, which is never visible.
There are several variables the surgeon would take into account regarding incisions, which are:
- Patient’s age.
- Degree of enlargement.
- Patient’s health.
- Patient’s preference.
If, for example, you preferred breast augmentation under the breast (known as เสริมหน้าอกใต้ราวนม in Thai), the surgeon would make note of that and if he was agreeable, that would be the incision location.
Breast enlargement surgery is a very straightforward procedure and the recovery time is minimal, which is why so many women are taking advantage of this treatment, which can really boost your self-esteem, and the cost is very reasonable.
The Final Consultation
After the initial consultation, if the patient is still in agreement, the final details will be agreed, then a date for the surgery can be scheduled, and the surgeon would give you a list of pre-op instructions that would include the stopping of smoking and cessation of taking birth control pills, which cause clotting.
The surgery itself takes between 45-90 minutes, depending on the level of difficulty, and once each implant is in place, the incisions are closed. The patient would typically spend one hour in post-op recovery and then they can return home, and most patients do not experience pain, rather a tightness in the chest which subsides within a few days.
This is a very popular treatment in Thailand, with many foreigners combining breast augmentation with their annual holiday, and if you are thinking of having the treatment, Bangkok clinics are world rated.
