BREAST REDUCTION

Hesitate no longer! Breast implants are the best way to have a long-lasting, safe and natural-looking augmentation to your breasts.

What is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction Thailand or a reduction mammoplasty is a reconstructive or cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to create smaller, lighter breasts by removing excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin from overly large heavy, sagging, pendulous breasts.

Breast reduction Thailand will be reconstructive if the goal is to bring breast size into proportion with the rest of the body and to relieve whatever discomfort may be caused by overly large breasts, such as back, neck and shoulder pain, stretched skin, and painful and deep indentation from bra straps.

Is Breast Reduction Thailand Right For Me?

Before a woman decides to have breast reduction surgery, she should think carefully about her expectations as well as possible risks, and discuss them with her surgeon. The best candidates for breast reduction Thailand are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look or are looking to alleviate physical discomfort and pain.

  • You suffer from neck, back, and shoulder pain caused by the weight of large breasts.
  • Tight bra straps have caused visible, uncomfortable grooves in your shoulders.
  • Your breasts feel un-proportioned to the rest of your body.
  • You have large, sagging breasts with low nipples and large areolas.
  • You are self-conscious of your breast size.
  • You have one breast significantly larger than the other.
  • Poor body image and confidence
  • Isolation and depression
  • Difficulty finding clothing that fits properly
  • Difficulty jogging or performing aerobic exercise
  • Embarrassment in social or professional settings
  • Embarrassment wearing certain types of shirts
  • You don’t smoke

    Preparing For Your Breast Reduction

    Read More

    Your surgeon, through our virtual consultation, will provide you with a list of instructions on what to do before your surgery.

    This will cover such areas as smoking, medications, what to bring with you to the hospital and when to have your last meal before surgery.

    It is of utmost importance that you follow these instructions, and the ones you will be given after your surgery. Your speedy recovery and health should be your number one priority.

    You will have to strictly follow these instructions before your breast reduction Thailand surgery.

    These are as follows:

    • 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 that interferes with the healing process. Prolonged healing may result in the formation of large, noticeable scars. If your surgeon finds out that you are still smoking, he will not perform the surgery.
    • Stop drinking alcoholic beverages a week before your surgery.
    • The day before your surgery. Make sure 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

    Special instructions you receive will cover:

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

      BREAST REDUCTION Procedure

      Read More

      Breast reduction Thailand is performed under a general anesthetic, which means you will sleep through the operation. You will be provided with anesthesia by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Typically, the operation takes about three hours, but may be longer in women with extremely large breasts.

      Prior to the operation, your surgeon will outline the planned incisions on your breasts with a marking pen with you sitting upright.

      These skin markings provide a guide for the surgery, which is done with you in the supine position, so that in the upright position the breasts are shaped appropriately and are as symmetrical as possible.

      The outline of the incisions results in scars with a “lollipop” shape, going around the areola (which is made smaller), and vertically down the center of the breast. It is not typically necessary to use an incision horizontally in the fold beneath the breast. Your surgeon uses the “short scar” technique for almost all his breast reductions. In extremely large reductions, the scar beneath the breast may be necessary

      During the procedure, the breast tissue to remain with the nipple and areola attached, is preserved, while the skin and breast that is excessive is removed.

      This is done in such a way as to preserve the best possible circulation to the nipple and areola and the smaller mound of breast beneath it. Flaps of breast are developed and sewn together to secure not just the skin, but also the breast gland itself in a smaller configuration.

      Some skin is removed to wrap the breast tissue in a tighter envelope, and the entire breast including the nipple are moved to a higher level on the chest, thereby giving the breast its new contour.

      All incisions are closed with dissolving type stitches and surgical wound tapes. Thick gauze and cotton dressings are placed for comfort and support. After the operation, you will need to spend at least an hour in our recovery room in order to recover from the anesthetic.

        RECOVERY

        Returning to Work

        You should be able to return to work after 2 weeks, depending on the level of physical activity. You are advised not to do any heavy lifting bending, straining, or pushing for the next 3 to 4 weeks. Your energy level may not return to normal for the next couple weeks.

        Swelling

        You will be swollen and bruised for about three to five weeks following surgery. You should be able to see the results of the reduction after this time, but it may take up to a year to see complete results.

        Showering

        You will be able to shower the day following your surgery. Make sure all incisions are completely dry then put your support bra back on as soon as possible.

        Recovery

        You should get up and walk around for a bit the day following your surgery to avoid any blood clotting, Your surgeon will remove your bandages a few days after surgery and you will wear a surgical bra for the next couple weeks and your stitches will be removed about 1 to 2 weeks after the procedure.

        Discomfort

        You may lose some feeling in your nipples or the surrounding skin caused by the swelling, but once the swelling subsides the feeling in your breast should return to normal.

        Results

        After a Breast Reduction your body will look more in proportion, clothes will fit you better and you will gain more self-confidence. The swelling should mostly subside after a few weeks but the new shape of your breasts may not be at its full potential for up to a year following surgery. Scarring will be permanent but should fade over time.
