As one of the most-requested cosmetic surgery procedures for women, a breast enlargement (informally known as a "boob job," breast implants or augmentation) will increase the size of your cup size, as well as your self-confidence.

Many women find that after pregnancies and childbirth their breasts lose volume–and gravity also takes its toll the older we get. This procedure, which normally uses implants, increases size while a breast lift may be performed as well to improve the overall appearance. 

Why Should I Consider a Breast Enlargement in Bangkok?

Bangkok is world-renowned for its top-quality clinics and expertise for all manner of cosmetic surgery. International patients are welcomed here with the top-quality facilities numbering among the best in the world. Medical tourists have been flocking to Bangkok since the 1990s and it remains one of the most popular destinations for surgery, medical and cosmetic procedures.

Cosmetic surgeons in Thailand typically offer wide-ranging expertise, from breast enlargements (probably the most requested cosmetic surgery procedure) through to sex-change operations (possibly one of the most complex procedures), as well as nose jobs, butt lifts, liposuction and other non-invasive treatments.

People were initially drawn to the Thai capital because of the prices–up to 70% less than what they’d pay at home–and it remains this competitive today. The lower prices are down to the cost of living, rent, labor, equipment and materials all costing less—and not because the standards or quality are in any way inferior. That said, you want to do some research to ensure you are booking with the best clinics and most experienced doctors.

What Is the Procedure for Breast Enlargements?

Before your surgery, your desires will be discussed fully between you and your surgeon. Breasts can be enlarged with implants, or a process called autologous fat transfer–where unwanted fat from one part of your body is removed, processed and reinjected into the breasts to increase volume. Fat transfer is only really recommended if you want a small size increase, but most people opt for implants, which can be made from saline, silicone or other biocompatible products such as soybean oil.

The surgery can be performed as an out-patient–so you won’t necessarily need an overnight stay in the hospital. After the anesthetic has been administered, small incisions are made in the breast through which the implants are placed. The incisions may be made around the colored part of the nipple, under the breast crease or under the armpit, and this is, again, something your surgeon will discuss with you beforehand.

The procedure takes between one and two hours, after which the incisions are stitched and the area dressed with bandages and/or compression garments. Sometimes wound drains may also be inserted to help drain excess fluid away.

What Is the Recovery Time After Breast Enlargement Surgery?

Expect to feel still and sore for the few days following surgery, as well as swelling and bruising. Most people feel well enough to return to work after a week, providing their job isn't too physical. Generally, you will need to take it easy, avoiding any vigorous activity for six weeks.

How Much Can I Save on My Breast Enlargements in Bangkok Compared to Home?

Breast enlargements in Bangkok are around AUD $5,000, compared to around AUD $11,000 in Australia, for example. This saving of over 50% can be put toward travel expenses, with many patients able to fly, enjoy a holiday in Thailand, and still return home having saved (compared to just the price of the procedure at home).
