Breast Augmentation Surgery in Bangkok, Thailand
Breast augmentation surgery, or augmentation mammoplasty, is a popular surgical procedure that involves the placement of breast implants beneath a woman’s breasts. If you feel dissatisfied with the shape, size or contour of your breasts, you can opt for a safe and effective breast augmentation surgery at Nirunda International Aesthetic Clinic in Bangkok, Thailand.
The implants used help restore volume and shape to your breasts, while also correcting any asymmetry or unevenness caused by developmental issues or breast cancer surgery. You can also opt for this procedure if you are unhappy with the size or drooping of your breasts post-pregnancy or weight loss.
Besides fundamentally improving confidence, self-esteem and body image, common reasons for breast augmentation include:
- Small breasts
- Asymmetrical breasts
- Drooping or sagging breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Changes in breast size or shape due to weight loss
- Reconstruction after surgery to treat breast cancer
- Cosmetic improvements after breast reconstruction
At our clinic in Bangkok, Thailand, when you opt for this surgery, breast implants are inserted under the natural breast tissue or behind the chest muscles through carefully placed incisions. Several choices exist regarding the location of these incisions.
The incision placement decision is determined in consultation with your surgeon and is based on your anatomy, your desired outcome and the size and shape of the breast implants.
Four main types of incision patterns are used during breast augmentation:
- Inframammary Incision (crease or fold incision)
- Periareolar Incision (nipple incision)
- Transaxillary Incision (armpit incision)
- TUBA Incision (belly button or transumbilical incision)
How to Choose an Implant
We understand that you want to look and feel your best. At our leading aesthetic clinic in Bangkok, Thailand, you are in safe hands. Our surgeons will evaluate your body, health, and preferences before recommending the best breast implants for you.
The two most common types of implants are saline and silicone. Saline implants consist of a silicone outer shell filled with sterile saline solution and are usually more affordable. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel and provide a more natural feel and look.
Choosing the right implant is a crucial factor in how your profile will look. For example, sagging in the breast might be better solved with a breast lift instead of a fat transfer. There’s no set path in terms of treatment and it is important to consider your personal preferences after a consultation with our surgeons.
You can choose from round or teardrop implants. As a rough guideline, round implants are best for those looking to give fullness to the top of the breast, while anatomical (or teardrop) are better suited to those lacking in breast tissue or seeking a more natural look.
1. Round (Memory Gel): Round implants are the most popular choice for women and are generally suitable for most patients. The final appearance tends to be soft, full, and proportioned. The best candidates for round implants tend to have little or no droop in the breast and some tissue in the breast already.
2.Teardrop (Memory shape): Commonly referred to as teardrop due to their shape, anatomical implants produce a more ‘natural’ shaped breast as they have more volume at the bottom and appear like an oval shape from the front. They are often used for breast reconstruction or for those who have very little volume in the chest and are normally textured to ensure no flipping or rotating can take place, preventing the breasts from looking uneven.
Results and Follow-up
Transform your body and boost your confidence with breast augmentation surgery performed by our board-certified plastic surgeons.
You can expect amazing results that mimic a natural look, feel, and movement with your body. However, post-surgery, you will face discomfort and pain but with proper care and rest, the pain should subside within one to five days. You must diligently follow our doctor’s directions for an effective and quick recovery and have regular follow-up appointments.
During recovery, it is important to get plenty of rest, avoid strenuous activity, and wear an appropriate-fitting bra. Swelling and soreness are normal and may last for a few weeks. Pain medication may be prescribed for discomfort.
Your doctor should be contacted if any excessive swelling, bleeding, or pain does not go away. You may also be recommended certain exercises to improve blood flow and reduce stiffness in the area. During follow-up appointments, your doctor will evaluate the healing process, check for complications and also discuss the best ways to maintain the results post-surgery.
Are you self-conscious about your drooping or saggy breasts? A breast lift could be the perfect solution to achieve a subtle yet natural and full look. Our clinic in Bangkok offers mastopexy, a type of breast lift surgery, to help improve the appearance of your breasts.
Breast ptosis (sagging breasts) can be caused by aging, significant weight loss/gain, pregnancy/breastfeeding, hormones, genetics, posture, and even wearing an ill-fitting bra. Breast lifting surgery can help improve the appearance of your breasts and restore confidence. It can sometimes be combined with other procedures, such as breast augmentation or reduction, to lift and reshape your breasts simultaneously.
What Is a Breast Lift?
Breast lifting surgery, commonly referred to as mastopexy, is a delicate and personalized plastic surgery procedure designed to help improve the shape and position of sagging breasts. During the procedure, excess skin and tissue is removed and the remaining tissue is carefully re-shaped and the nipples and areolas repositioned to create a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing breast shape with a firmer, more uplifted position.
Depending on the desired results and the patient's anatomy, the procedure can be done with or without the use of implants. Although recovery time varies, it typically takes 1-2 weeks, depending on the complexity of the surgery. While the results of the surgery are long-lasting, it is still important to follow up with your doctor from time to time to ensure your breasts are healthy post-surgery.
You may be a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery if:
- You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts sag or have lost shape and volume
- Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous
- When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
- Your nipples and areolas point downward
- You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
- One breast is lower than the other
If you're considering breast lift surgery, it's important to remember that it's an individualized procedure and should be done for yourself, and not to satisfy or to try to fit a certain idealized version of beauty. You should do what's best for you and your body.
Types of Incisions
There are several types of incisions that are possible. All incisions are made according to the contour of the breast so that scarring is hidden and minimal. Here are the different types of incisions:
- Anchor Incision (Invert –T) – this includes an incision around the areola, another along the breast crease horizontally and one that connects both of these. Unfortunately it is quite invasive but has to be used if there is an extreme degree of sagging. It’s the preferred method if there is also a breast reduction done simultaneously.
- Lollipop Lift – this is preferred for those with moderate sagging. The incision is done around the areola and vertically down to the crease in the breast, somewhat simulating a keyhole. It is commonly used when women are not getting breast implants with a lift.
- Peri-Areolar Lift – this incision is for those who have moderate or mild sagging. It’s used if breast implants are also used.
Incisions will fade over time and improve. Your goal during the recovery period is to keep the incisions free from infections. Infections can make scarring worse.
Results and Follow-up
The surgery time varies according to the procedure performed, but most surgeries takes approximately 2 to 4 hours. The patient will need to undergo general anesthesia during the operation. A lab check-up is required for the patient before the surgery. After a few days, you will have the surgical drains removed at the doctor’s office. Your incisions will look red or bright pink and, after time, they will fade. Your stitches will be removed after a few weeks.
During this time, a support bra should be worn to decrease the swelling of your breasts. Your breasts will need a few months of healing before you’re ready to show off their new improved shape. Your nipple and areola sensations will take several months to return. You may return to work after about a week, with your doctor’s permission.
