The cost factor – does cheap translate into low quality?
You may feel that because the rates for medical and cosmetic surgeries in Bangkok are very low, the quality of the clinics and the doctors may not be up to the mark. However, that is simply not true. There are hundreds of thousands of medical tourists who go to Thailand for top quality medical care and treatment at affordable rates.
The doctors and surgeons in Thailand have to go through a rigorous and competitive medical education. Many of them do advanced training in foreign universities and some may have affiliations to international professional bodies as well, adding to their credentials. Plus they get a lot more hands-on experience. The medical centers have top quality amenities, use the latest and most advanced medical equipment and you can expect high quality care from the support staff as well.
Surgical or non-surgical breast augmentation?
You can have breast augmentation using implants. That is the traditional way and relatively permanent. You can choose from size, type and brand of implants; the placing of the implants can also vary. You can choose from round or tear drop implants, as you prefer. The implants are manufactured by medical companies and you can get the brand that you want and these are of standard quality.
If you don’t want surgery, you can go slightly bigger using autologous fat transfer wherein fat is harvested from your body using liposuction, processed and then injected into the breasts to increase the size. You may need maintenance treatments at intervals as the fat s absorbed by the body over time.
