If you are thinking about cosmetic surgery abroad, a breast lift in Chiang Mai could be a good place to start. To help you avoid pitfalls, we have gathered enough information and listed on our site the highest quality facilities in Chiang Mai. Also, booking with us guarantees up to seventy percent savings which you can use for other treatments.

What Is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, corrects sagging and uneven breasts by improving their shape and position. Excess skin is often removed, and the surrounding tissues tightened and reshaped to bring back the perkier, more vibrant breasts you have always desired. The surgery also addresses drooping nipples, decreased breast volume and stretched areola (the darker area surrounding the nipples).

Before considering a breast lift in Chiang Mai, you have to be in good standing health.

The only way to confirm if a breast lift is right for you is to consult with a qualified surgeon. However, women with the following reasons and conditions can benefit from a breast lift:

  • If you want to restore your breasts' shape following pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • If your breasts are asymmetrical or unusually shaped
  • If you want to improve your breasts contours after significant weight loss
  • If your nipples seem to be pointing downwards
  • If your areola sits below the crease underneath your breasts

Why Consider a Breast Lift in Chiang Mai?

If you want to go up or down a cup size or two, a breast lift alone is not the answer. It can give you perky, youthful breasts, but if you want larger or smaller breasts, a breast lift together with a breast augmentation or reduction may be the right option for you. It is, therefore, important to do some research or consult with your physician to find out what you are comfortable with and what end results you want to achieve.

For patients who find the costs expensive, Chiang Mai makes a great alternative, especially if you book with Medical Departures. You can save up to 70% on your breast lift - a sum you can use on other surgeries like breast augmentation or reduction. This means surgeries here are low-priced and you get high-quality results.

Thailand is the world’s favorite medical tourism destination in Asia and has more JCI accredited facilities than any other country in Asia. That tells you that the professionalism, technology, and techniques used are up to the standards as required by international organizations.

Booking with Medical Departures

Finding a doctor or a clinic with a good reputation might be a struggle. Medical Departures makes it easy and it saves you time. We have listed on our site high performing and safe hospitals.

How Long Does a Breast Lift in Chiang Mai Take and What Is the Recovery Time?

A breast lift is an outpatient procedure that takes between one and two hours. The operation is carried out using general anesthesia or local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. A breast lift is often performed together with other procedures like breast implants (restores fullness and shape of the breasts) or breast augmentation or reduction (for larger or smaller breasts).

During the procedure, incisions are made around the areola and breast tissues lifted and reshaped to improve contours and firmness. Fat, glandular tissue and excess skin are also removed to compensate for a loss of elasticity and the remaining skin tightened. The incision pattern and techniques will depend on your breast size and shape, the degree of sagging, size and position of the areola and amount of skin to be removed. However, the surgeon will recommend an incision technique that best suits your particular body.

Recovery: Things to Note About Breast Lifts

  • After the surgery, you will have to choose either to wear a surgical bra or a gauze dressing wrapped around your breasts and chest to help the healing process.
  • Drainage tubes may also be attached to your breasts but these will be removed within a few days.
  • Recovery time differs from patient to patient, but you can be able to resume to work within a few weeks.
  • Scars might be permanent but they will fade away and become unnoticeable with time.
