If you are experiencing problems following a breast augmentation or implant surgery, having breast revision in Phuket can help to correct those issues. Breast augmentation or implant surgery is a popular procedure to help women feel more confident about their appearance. If the procedure was not performed correctly, breast revision surgery may be necessary to correct those issues. Over time, many women who have had breast implants will also need breast revision surgery to replace their original implants. Breast implants are typically only good for about 10 years and will need to be replaced at some point.
Other common reasons for seeking breast revision are rupture or deflation of implants. This procedure might also be performed when a woman is unhappy with some aspect of your implants. For instance, it is not uncommon for some women to wish they had opted for a larger size with their original implants. Whatever the issue may be, breast revision in Phuket presents the opportunity to feel more confident about your figure while traveling to an exciting locale and even saving money on your procedure.
To be a good candidate for breast revision surgery, you should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations regarding the outcome from your procedure.
The reasons for traveling to Phuket for breast revision surgery are numerous. Among the most common reasons for traveling here, include the ability to vacation in a beautiful beach environment. Home to pristine beaches, Phuket offers swimming, surfing, diving, snorkeling, and more. Many people also opt to travel to Phuket for their medical procedures in order to save on the cost of their care. Medical procedures in Thailand are typically significantly less expensive than in the United States.
While there are certainly many reasons to travel to Phuket for medical care, it is still a good idea to research your options.

The approach taken to breast revision surgery depends on the reasons for the procedure. In most cases, this procedure involves removing old implants and replacing them with new implants. A size change is often involved. Depending on the needs and desires of the patient, a breast revision may also include release of scar tissue, a breast lift, and changes to the size, shape, and even location of the pocket in which the implants are placed.
This procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. The surgery itself usually takes between one and four hours based on exactly what needs to be done. When you awaken from the procedure, you should expect to have a gauze dressing. Drainage tubes may also be in place to prevent buildup of fluid. If you experience any pain or discomfort following your procedure, you may be prescribed pain medication. In most cases, you should be able to be released following a short observation period. During the first few days following your breast revision, you will be advised to take it easy. Be aware that it could take several weeks or even months to see the final results of your procedure, as the new implants will need time to settle. You may experience some tingling or numbness, particularly around the site of the incision. This should dissipate within the next few weeks or months.
