Visit the world’s number 1 cosmetic surgery destination and get your breast enlargements in Thailand. Breast enlargements are one of the most popular surgeries, and also have high satisfaction rates. Thailand has years of experience, highly-specialized surgeons and world-class facilities – so why not take advantage of the expertise, the lower prices and have a holiday to remember in the Land of Smiles?
Breast enlargement, or breast implants, are a relatively straightforward procedure when compared to other cosmetic surgery. Sure – you’ll be tender after surgery, but the downtime is relatively minimal, and by the time you are traveling back home after your recuperation period you should be feeling pretty good.
Thailand has been attracting medical tourists from across the world since the 1990s. Competitive prices, high-standards and bilingual staff have seen it remain a popular destination, and why not when Thailand has so many other delights to enjoy on a pre or post-surgery vacation? Even if you don’t feel up to much after surgery for a day or two, wouldn’t you rather be relaxing on holiday than at home? Treat yourself to a little pampering – the Thai’s are renowned for their legendary customer service.
Of course, Thailand is a beautiful country with fantastic scenery, an incredible history, great food and a culture that is just waiting to be explored – the perfect holiday destination. Relax in exotic beach locations or dine out in Bangkok’s first-class restaurants – there’s always something to suit all tastes.
With regard to medical expertise and facilities, Thailand is right on the button in terms of expertise and in the superior quality of its facilities - it has more JCI-accredited facilities than any other country in Southeast Asia. It remains ahead of the game as the income from medical tourism is reinvested back into services to make them ever more appealing in terms of customer care, price and quality.
Thailand can provide patients with the ultimate experience, but the key is to ensure you choose wisely – do a little research, find out about what your procedure entails and find a reputable surgeon you can trust. At Medical Departures we can’t stress how important this is, which is why we give you the tools to enable you to make a decision. We pre-check doctors and clinics – we go on site visits, we verify qualifications and professional memberships and look for any legal or criminal records. Along with patient testimonials, if anything we find doesn’t stack up, we simply do not list them.
The same materials used in breast implants at home are used in Thailand. These are saline, silicone and other ‘alternative implants’ with biocompatible material, such as soybean. If you only want to increase your size slightly, then the autologous fat transfer method may also be an option. This is where fat is transferred from one part of your body into the breast tissue. This involves liposuction to the donor site where the fat is removed and processed before it is injected into the breast.
Before your surgery, in consultation with your surgeon, you will already have chosen the material and size of implant you would like. In theatre, you will be given an anesthetic and the surgeon will make small incisions in your breasts where the implants are to be inserted. Methods vary, depending on what is suitable for your circumstances, and the surgeon’s own preferences. The incisions may be made under the armpit, under the breast in the crease where it joins the chest wall, or around the colored part of the nipple. Once your surgeon is happy with its placement, the incisions made will be stitched closed, and bandages or compression garments applied to help the healing process. Sometimes drains may be inserted into the wounds to help fluid drain away.
The surgery only takes 1-2 hours, can be done as an out-patient and may not require any overnight stay in hospital.
Recovery time is usually around a week. You will suffer discomfort and tenderness for a few days, as well as bruising and swelling. It will take around 6 weeks before you can embark on physical exercise again, or do anything strenuous, like heavy lifting.
The cost of breast enlargements in Thailand is around AUD$5,000, compared to around AUD$11,000 in Australia.
