Breast enlargement in Pattaya may be considered if you want to surgically increase the size of your breasts while taking advantage of the far lower prices in Thailand.
We have partnered with some of the most trusted clinics in the region to bring you affordable options for your cosmetic surgery abroad. Read on to find out more.
Breast enlargement, often referred to as breast augmentation, increases the size of your breasts normally using implants (although fat transfer is a less common method that can be used to achieve a small increase in size).
Modern breast enlargement does not reduce sensation and it is possible to breastfeed if required. Patients often seek to change both the shape and size of their breasts in order to boost confidence and self-esteem.
It should be noted that the procedure is normally carried out under general anaesthesia in a hospital or outpatient medical facility.
When you have this surgery done in Pattaya, you'll save a great deal of money—at least 50% and often more.
Something that may seem unaffordable in Australia is more within your reach here in Pattaya, one of Thailand's most popular coastal cities.
Having plastic surgery in Thailand does not mean you will in any way be compromising when it comes to quality. This is a premier destination for medical tourism with excellent facilities and medical expertise. When you book through Medical Departures, you can be certain that we have carried out due diligence on the clinics and facilities. We also check the medical qualifications of the staff and the doctors and also carry outpatient interviews.
Pattaya also attracts millions of regular holidaymakers every year, and you too can enjoy a fab holiday in Thailand, combining it with your surgery (so long as you get your more energetic activities out of the way beforehand). The region is packed full of beaches, shopping options and delicious cuisine, both local and international. It's also easily accessible from major cities across Australia, Europe and the rest of Asia, with Bangkok being only a 90-minute ride away.
The surgery for breast enlargement takes about an hour or two, depending on the kind of implants, the sites of incisions and your general health.
While it can be performed on an outpatient basis, your doctor may want to keep you overnight in the hospital so that you can be monitored. Usually, the procedure is done under general anaesthesia.
The incisions, which will create minimal scarring that will fade over time, can be made:
The implants can be placed either over the muscle and tissue or behind it. You can decide on the cup size along with the consultation with the doctor, but you can safely increase your normal cup size by two sizes.
Full recovery will take around six weeks, but you will be able to return to work in about a week or two, depending on the surgery. Ideally, you should avoid any strenuous activities until complete recovery and the go-ahead from the doctor.
The average cost of a breast enlargement in Pattaya is around AUD $7,000 (GBP £3,300; US $5,000; €4,300) compared to $16,500 in Australia (UK £8,000; US $11,600, EUR €10,400)
