Breast augmentation in Thailand is also commonly known as a ‘boob job’ or breast implant. It’s a procedure that is one of the most popular surgeries around the world for women. But this popular procedure also is considered to be a purely elective procedure, when in fact it can help women come to terms with themselves after mastectomies and other trauma to their breasts.
Restorative breast augmentation in Thailand helps to bolster a woman’s self-confidence and self-esteem. It makes them feel like themselves again. And it can ease depression after the heartbreak of breast cancer and tumor removal procedures.
A breast augmentation candidate may seek a breast implant because of naturally small or uneven breasts. They may also want a breast implant to look better after their breasts have sagged or lost their shape after childbirth. They may also seek a breast augmentation after a period of significant weight loss that results in a loss of volume to their breasts.
There are many hospitals and clinics in Thailand performing breast augmentation, but all of them follow the same general procedure.
Process of Breast Augmentation in Thailand
The process of breast augmentation begins with a doctor’s consultation and medical examination. This part of the process is important in determining a patient’s suitability of undergoing the procedure.
The doctor will examine the breast and chest wall to decide on the suitability of the patient for a breast implant, and how best to go about the surgery. The doctor will take note of the shape of the breast and skin elasticity, and they will include the patient’s reasons and for seeking a breast implant in their evaluation.
Depending on the patient’s weight and body type, the doctor has two options. For women with breasts that include the natural skin fold below the breast, the doctor may choose to make the incision within this skin fold.
For women who are thinner and lack this natural skin fold, the doctor may choose to make the incision under the arm and perform the procedure using an endoscope. In both of these techniques, the goal is to hide the incision as much as possible.
The breast implant itself is made of a sterile type of plastic that is filled with either silicone or saline. Some women feel that silicone breast implants feel more like a real breast, but these implants pose a greater risk to the patient’s health if they develop a leak. Saline breast implants contain a sterile saline solution that poses no health risk to the patient if they develop a leak.
The chances of the implant developing a leak are very low, but every woman should consider all the safety aspects of breast augmentation in Thailand before submitting to the procedure.
The healing process after the procedure takes about two weeks, during which the patient must sleep with on their back with their head elevated. After the sutures are healed, the patient applies scar prevention cream to the scars for about two months to minimize their visibility.
