Breast Augmentation

Hesitate no longer! Breast augmentation is the best way to achieve a long-lasting, safe, and natural-looking enhancement to your breasts. Our comprehensive guide will walk you through everything you need to know about the procedure, from initial consultation to post-operative care.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty or breast enlargement, is a surgical procedure that involves using implants to enhance the volume, tone, and firmness of the breasts, ultimately enhancing their overall attractiveness and appeal.

  • Are you looking to regain a youthful appearance and feel more confident?
  • Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have a stunning cleavage?
  • Do you have sagging or drooping breasts?
  • Are you interested in having larger, firmer, and more attractive breasts?

Yanhee’s cosmetic surgeons combine surgical expertise with artistic flair, sculpting the breast area into beautifully feminine curves. This approach enhances the overall appearance of the breasts, creating a contoured proportionality that contributes to a woman’s alluring and confident look.

What Breast Enlargement Surgery Won’t Do?

If your breasts are severely drooping and sagging, you may require an additional breast lift procedure.

Breast lift surgery can sometimes be performed simultaneously with your augmentation, or it may necessitate a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making the best decision for your situation.

Is Breast Augmentation Right For Me?

Before deciding on surgery, women should carefully consider their expectations and the potential risks, discussing these with their surgeon. The ideal candidates for breast enlargement are those seeking improvement, not perfection, in their appearance.

Breast augmentation may be suitable for you if you experience any of the following:

  • You feel your breasts are small or underdeveloped.
  • You believe your figure is disproportionate, with small breasts making your hips appear wider.
  • You feel limited in clothing or swimwear choices due to small breasts.
  • You are dissatisfied with the shape and volume loss of your breasts after pregnancy, weight loss, or aging.
  • You are unhappy with the upper part of your breasts appearing “empty.”
  • Your breasts are asymmetrical or differ in size or shape.
  • You have existing breast implants and are experiencing issues with them.
  • One or both breasts did not develop normally or have an unnatural, elongated shape.

Preparing for Breast Augmentation

Your surgeon will provide you with instructions during our virtual consultation to prepare for your surgery. These instructions will cover areas such as smoking cessation, medication guidelines, what to bring to the hospital, and when to have your last meal before surgery.

It’s crucial to follow these instructions and any post-operative instructions provided to ensure a speedy recovery and prioritize your health.

Before your breast enlargement surgery, you will need to adhere to the following instructions strictly:

  • For smokers: STOP smoking two weeks before surgery. You will need another two weeks after surgery to start smoking. Smoking increases the risks of complications. Chemicals present in smoke act as free radicals, which interfere with the healing process. Prolonged healing may result in the formation of large, unsightly scars. If your surgeon finds out that you are still smoking, he will not perform the surgery.
  • Stop drinking alcoholic beverages one week before your surgery.
  • The day before your surgery, do not drink alcohol, and ensure you do not eat or drink anything at least six hours before your operation.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding.
  • Know in advance that this procedure requires the absence of breast milk. Breast milk may contain bacteria that can contaminate the implant and trigger infection or capsular contracture. It is advisable to wait for three months. Your breasts can also produce milk if you are taking birth control pills or hormones. Stop taking these pills at least two weeks before surgery.

Special instructions you receive will cover:

  • What to do on the day of surgery
  • Post-operative care and follow-up

Breast Enlargement Procedure

What Happens During Breast Augmentation Surgery?
  1. During breast augmentation surgery, an incision is made either in the inframammary fold (inframammary incision), around the areola (periareolar incision), or in the armpit (transaxillary incision). These incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome.Breast Augmentation Thailand Incisions
  2. The surgeon will lift the breast tissue and skin to create a pocket (subglandular or submuscular).
  3. The implant is then placed into the pocket.
  4. Incisions are closed with sutures.
  5. Bandages are applied and fixed with surgical tape.

After Breast Augmentation Surgery

There will be swelling and bruising after surgery, most of which will subside within the first few months. The remainder will subside over time, and final results will be visible around 6 months or more after surgery.

You will receive specific instructions, which may include how to care for your breasts following breast augmentation surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to schedule a follow-up with your plastic surgeon.

Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon specific questions about what you can expect during your recovery period.

  • Where will I be taken after my surgery is complete?
  • What medication will I be given or prescribed after surgery?
  • Will I have dressings/bandages after surgery? When will they be removed?
  • Are stitches removed? When?
  • When can I resume normal activity and exercise?
  • When do I return for follow-up care?

Risks of Breast Enlargement Surgery

Risks associated with this procedure include:
  • Bleeding and hematoma formation
  • Fluid accumulation
  • Infection
  • Poor healing of incisions
  • Keloid and hypertrophic scar formation
  • Changes in nipple or breast sensation which may be temporary or permanent
  • Breast asymmetry
  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant leakage or rupture
  • Rippling (wrinkling of the skin over the implant)
  • Pain, which may persist
  • Risks associated with anesthesia and the possibility of revisional surgery

Post-Operative Care for Breast Enlargement Surgery

  • Get enough rest. Avoid alcohol and smoking for at least 1 month.
  • Start walking as soon as possible.
  • Avoid strenuous activities for 4 weeks.
  • Refrain from physical contact with your breasts for 3-4 weeks.
  • You may shower 48 hours after the removal of drain tubes.
  • Use only support bras without wires after sutures are removed.
  • According to your doctor’s instructions, bras may be worn about 1-2 weeks after surgery when most of the swelling has subsided. Support bras are recommended to maintain breast shape.
  • You may wear a bra with wires 4-6 months after surgery.

*** The surgery typically lasts for about 1-2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.

Breast Massage

Proper breast massage is crucial after breast augmentation in Thailand to achieve a good breast shape and reduce the risk of capsular contractures. During follow-up appointments, the surgeon will provide instructions on the correct technique. However, the occurrence of capsular contractures also depends on the body’s healing process after surgery, and this condition can still occur even with proper massage.

Breast Massage Procedure

  1. Use both hands to gently push both breasts together, towards the center of your chest.
  2. Push the breasts away from each other, towards the sides of your chest.
  3. Push both breasts downwards, towards your abdomen.
  4. Push both breasts upwards, towards your shoulders.

Note: Massage gently in all four positions and repeat as directed.

How many days after the operation for breast augmentation can I leave Bangkok?

Your surgeon will provide instructions on caring for your breasts after surgery. This may include a special breast massage technique and wearing a supportive bra for several months to aid in the healing process.

What are the potential risks?

Some risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, asymmetry, nerve injury, numbness in the areolae and nipples, scarring or keloids at the incision site, capsular contracture (scar tissue around the implant), rippling of the skin over the implant, implant leakage, and the potential need for revision surgery.

How do I prepare for surgery?

To reduce the risk of complications, it’s important to follow these guidelines:

  1. Stop smoking and drinking alcohol at least two weeks before surgery.
  2. Discontinue the use of hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medications not approved by your doctor.
  3. Obtain surgical clearance from your medical specialist if you have any underlying health conditions.
