Breast Implants in Thailand

If are unhappy with your breasts and feel you could look better with an increased bust-line, then breast implants could help give you firmer breasts and improved contours.

However, as most of the people find the cost of breast augmentation surgery in their home country quite intimidating, the option of traveling for breast implants in Thailand, and particularly its capital Bangkok, can be less intimidating.

An Overview of Breast Implant Procedure

  • Breast implants are prostheses which help increase the bust size and give the appearance of firmer and more attractive breasts.
  • These can also correct saggy drooping breasts if a breast implant surgery is performed with a breast lift procedure.
  • Breast implant procedure is alternatively known as breast augmentation and augmentation mammoplasty.
  • Implants are also used in post mastectomy reconstruction and for correcting chest deformities present from birth.
  • Surgery involves making incisions in the inframmamary fold and the areola or the armpit.
  • The incisions are placed strategically so that the scars are minimally visible.
  • Underlying breast tissue is lifted to create a compartment for the implant.
  • After placing the implant in the compartment, the surgeon sutures back the incisions.
  • Bruising and swelling after surgery are common and may take a few months to subside.
  • It will take you about six months to appreciate the final results of your surgery.

Types of Breast Implants

Silicone-filled Implants

  • These are filled with silicone gel.
  • Silicone gel is a thick liquid substance that is quite similar in texture to human fat.
  • Silicone implants score over saline implants, as the former feel and look more like natural breasts.
  • A leaky silicone implant might cause breast pain or result in changes to the contours of the bust area. This can warrant surgical removal of the implant.

Saline-filled Implants

  • Saline filled implants are inserted unfilled into the breast.
  • These are filled with sterile saline water after placing them in the breast area.
  • The saline implant’s outer covering or shell is, however, made of silicone.
  • If a saline implant ruptures, the leaked salt water will be absorbed by the body; the remnant silicone shell will have to be removed surgically.

How to Prepare for Your Surgery?

  • Stop smoking at least two weeks before your surgery.
  • You will have to continue abstaining from smoking for at least two weeks after your surgery as the chemicals present in smoke can interfere with the healing process.
  • Say no to alcoholic beverages at least a week before your breast implant surgery.
  • Make sure you do not consume alcohol at least a day before your surgery.
  • See to it that you do not eat or drink anything for at least 6 hours before your surgery.
  • Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal medicines should be avoided as these can increase chances of bleeding.
Did you know? The world’s first silicone breast implants were developed by a team led by Dr Thomas Cronin in 1962. Breast implants have a history of more than half a century!
