We can help you find quality-checked surgeons for your breast lifts in Bangkok. It is inevitable that as we age the force of gravity exerts its forces on muscles and tissues that lose their youthful elasticity – and breasts are no exception, even if they aren’t overtly large.
After childbirth, it can be quite depressing that your body may have completely changed shape. A breast lift is often something women have done when they have finished having children and don’t intend to get pregnant again.
It works best on smaller breast sizes that during pregnancy and breast-feeding have increased in size, but have lost elasticity and drooped when the breasts have returned to their normal size. If you are happy with the size and volume of your breasts but want to remove sagging skin, this procedure will help.
Bangkok has many top-class facilities that have been treating international patients for decades. It is far from being third-world with qualified surgeons who have experience, expertise and know-how, as well as ancillary staff who provide seamless support services.
Going to Bangkok for breast lift surgery may seem daunting, but it is a routine procedure for surgeons here, who perform thousands yearly.
That isn’t to say that you shouldn’t do some research when choosing your surgeon – because you should. Just like any other services, it pays to find out as much as you can about any surgical procedure – the pros and cons; whether you are suitable and if it will work for you, as well as the expertise of the surgeon. A good place to start would be to check qualifications and professional memberships - for example, are they Board Certified? Do they have membership of any international organizations, such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
At Medical Departures we make it easier by providing you with information about surgeons and facilities in Bangkok, so you can choose in the full knowledge that they are quality-checked. So what does quality-checked actually mean?
Well – our checks involve a number of criteria that give an overall impression so that quality can be assessed. This includes legal and criminal records, qualifications and professional memberships. On top of that, we also pay personal visits to clinics and hospitals, so we can see for ourselves what facilities they have and what their hygiene and safety procedures are. Coupled with real patient testimonials, this gives us an overall impression of the standards which give us a measure of the quality provided.
No surgical or medical procedure can ever be guaranteed completely, but you will give yourself the best start if you are comfortable with the quality on offer at the outset.
The breast lift surgery usually takes between one and three hours, depending on how much tissue is to be removed and the exact procedure your surgeon uses:
The ‘anchor’ is the oldest technique, and incisions are made around the areola, down toward the breast crease and horizontally along the crease. This produces the most scarring and is usually used with a breast reduction.
The ‘crescent’ is less common and is made along the upper half of the areola. It is usually performed with a breast augmentation and is used for minor sagging.
The ‘donut’ is suitable for mild to moderate sagging and incisions made around the areola.
The ‘lollipop’ is suitable for moderate sagging, and is known as a keyhole incision made around the areola and down toward the breast crease.
The ‘scarless’ lift is a procedure for women who are more concerned about volume loss rather than sagging, so with no excess skin requiring removal, the procedure can be made with incisions around the areola, which are hardly noticeable.
The recovery time for a breast lift is fairly quick. You may be tender and sore but will be encouraged to walk around as soon as you can after surgery as this promotes healing. You will probably need to avoid bending and lifting for a few days but most people return to work after a week, with normal everyday activities manageable within two weeks. It may be six weeks before you can embark on strenuous activity, and a full six months before your body completely heals – inside and out – from the surgery.
Breast lifts in Bangkok average around AUD $3,800 compared to AUD $6,800 in Australia.
