Breast Reduction / Breast Lift in Bangkok, Thailand
Breast Reduction and Breast Lift:
While a lot of women dream of having bigger, fuller breasts, some have uncomfortably enlarged breasts that need to be reduced. Breasts that are too large can case upper and mid back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, shoulder bra strap grooves, postural problems and chronic sweating and rashes beneath the breasts. Finding clothes and underwear that properly fit is also one problem. Breast reduction surgery is one of the procedures to decrease the size of the breast. There are three methods to surgically reduce and lift the breasts.
1. Breast Reduction and Lift by Liposuction
The surgeon uses Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (VASER) with patients with not too large breasts.
- Invisible scar
- Incision scar around areola can be hidden
- Less duration of the surgery comparing to another procedure
- Less recovery time
- Difficult to control the shape and contour of the breasts, or size relative to the patient's request
- Scar around areola (O-scar)
- Folded skins may occur around incision scar, however, they normally disappear within three to five months
This procedure is suitable for large breasts with mild and moderate ptosis. The incision scar is around areola (Figure 1). During this procedure, fat, glandular tissue and the excess skin are removed and cut from the breasts. The nipples will be repositioned, and the breasts will be reshaped to get good body proportion.

2. Breast Reduction and Lift by Inverted T-scar
For patients with significantly large breasts, the surgeon will make an incision in the skin that take the form of an inverted T-scar (Picture 2), remove the excess fat and adjust the shape. The size is reduced to the patient’s preference.

The procedure takes approximately three to five hours, depending on the size of the breast. Patient and surgeon have to come to conclusion of what desired results would be before theprocedure.
