How Can a Breast Reduction Help?

While enlarged breasts may be developmental in nature, the condition may also occur as a result of pregnancy or weight gain.

Patients may want to consider a breast reduction if they:

  • Feel self-conscious about the appearance
  • Experience neck, back or shoulder pain due to their breasts being too big for the body frame size 
  • One of the breasts is bigger than the other.
  • Have enlarged and heavy breasts with nipples and areolas (pigmented skin surrounding the nipples) that point downward.

If you have any medical conditions or history that you think might affect your breasts, feel free and discuss with your doctor who should be able to advise you appropriately.

It should also be noted that breast reduction in Chiang Mai is not only suitable for women. Men can also undergo the procedure, especially those with conditions such as gynecomastia.

Why Should I Consider Breast Reduction in Chiang Mai?

Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand has much to offer medical visitors, with several highly-rated facilities offering this specialist surgery. Expert medical practices and innovative technology have made Thailand a world leader when it comes to medical tourism. Foreign patients and tourists who have undergone surgery in Thailand almost always express their satisfaction and complement the high-quality medical services, which adhere to international hygiene and safety standards.

The most significant incentive to choose breast reduction in Chiang Mai is its lower cost, with the 50 to 70 percent you'll be saving often equating to thousands of dollars.

While breast reduction is an outpatient procedure, some patients might also consider staying in the country for a little while, perhaps coming early to enjoy a holiday before surgery. Apart from the reasonable fee you pay for your breast reduction surgery, room rates, food, day trips, shopping and spa treatments are notably inexpensive in Chiang Mai.

  • Collating and publishing unedited past patient reviews

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

A breast reduction in Chiang Mai is usually carried out as an outpatient procedure. However, depending on your personal condition, you may have to stay at least a night in the hospital. In either case, general anaesthesia is always used.

Breast reduction takes about two to four hours, sometimes longer depending on the complexity of the procedure.

For the procedure:

  • First, the surgeon will make one or more cuts around your nipple then downward on the breast.
  • The surgical removal of excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue is then carried out.
  • During this time, the nipple and areola (which may be reduced in size) are also shifted to a higher position.
  • The skin occupying the place above the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the breast.
  • The surgeon will close the skin using sutures, skin adhesives and/or surgical tape and wrap your breasts in a special gauze.
  • The doctor may also place drainage tubes or ask you to wear a surgical bra to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal.
  • In some cases, excess fat may be removed through liposuction.

The exact technique used to reduce the size of your breasts will be determined by your individual condition, breast composition, amount of reduction desired, your personal preferences and the surgeon’s advice.

Recovery from breast reduction surgery varies. Some people will take less time while others might take longer. While you recover, it’s important that you stop any physical activity for at least one month after the surgery.

You may also feel tired or experience emotional reactions, such as depression during your recovery period which is normal. You should use the oral painkillers as prescribed that will ease the fatigue. 

What Is the Cost of Breast Reduction Surgery in Chiang Mai Compared to Australia?

Breast reduction costs vary and the procedure is not always covered by insurance (and even then, premiums may be high).

In Chiang Mai, prices start from as low as $3,400 (AUD $4771, Euro €3150, UK £2450) going up to $5,900 (AUD $8280, UK £4300, Euro €5400). The same procedure may cost up to $18,000 (AUD $25300, Euro €16500, UK £13000) in Australia.
