Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation / Breast Implant Surgery in Bangkok, Thailand 

           Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance a small breast. For some women, a sexy breast look is essential for self-esteem. Breast augmentation surgery will improve your body and make you feel more confident. There are many techniques for breast augmentation, including breast implant and fat transfer.

Incision for Breast Augmentation

There are three standard incisions to insert the breast implants as follows;

          1. The periareolar incision is at the junction of the pigmented areolar skin and the natural breast skin. The incision is for aesthetic surgery but passes through the milk duct.  The surgeon requires the incision of 1/3 of the areolar. The advantage of this incision is the scar placed on the border of pigmented skin, which can camouflage.

          2. Trans-axillary incision is made in the under armpits, 4-5 cm. The incision in a natural skin crease in the underarm area is used to create a submuscular pocket for breast implant placement. This technique can cause the implant to be a little high because it is hard to put the implant in the expected area. The scar will be visible when raising the arms. 

          3. Inframammary incision. This area is the most common procedure: 5-6 cm incisions for a breast implant, the inframammary crease incision at the base of the breast. This incision allows direct access to the submuscular or sub-glandular plane and avoids dissection through the milk ducts around the nipple. It is often an incision required for breast implant revision surgery. The scar will be visible.

Breast Implant material

          There are two basic types of breast implants: Saline and silicone gel, which need Food and Drug Administration approval (FDA approved).

  • Saline –Filled implants are silicone shells filled with saline. The saline implant is filled with saline during breast implant surgery.
  • Silicone gel-filled implants are silicone shells filled with silicone. The gel implant feels more like natural breasts than saline, but it poses more risk if it leaks.

Both saline and silicone come in different sizes and have either smooth or textured shells. So please consult the broad certified plastic surgeon.

Preparation for Breast Augmentation

  • Consult with the surgeon about your expectations, then choose the breast implant type, size, and incision area. The manufacturer of the implant you will be getting and keep the copies for your records. Physical examination, blood test, chest x-ray
  • Stop smoking at least two weeks before and after surgery
  • Stop taking anti-inflammatory medications such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen for at least two weeks. Also, avoid herbal supplements and vitamins, which may increase bleeding during and after surgery

Procedure for Breast Augmentation (Breast Implant)

  1. The operation is done during general anesthesia.
  2.  After opening the incision, the surgeon will separate the breast tissue of your chest to create the pocket upper or lower the outermost muscle of the chest wall ( pectoral muscle) and then insert the implant into the pocket. The surgeon will create and adjust the shape by keeping the implants behind the center of the nipple and balancing the breast. If saline implants, they will insert the empty implant and fill sterile saline with the amount required.
  3. The surgeon will close the incision and bandage it with adhesive and surgical tape
  4. The operation time is 1-2 hours.

Post-operative Care for Breast Augmentation

  • Keep clean and dry the incision wound 2-3 days after surgery
  • Take stitches off seven days after surgery
  • You will need a follow-up appointment for 7 days, 14 days, and one month
  • You will need a massage to prevent the capsular contracture and adjust the positioning implant, making a balanced shape for at least one month to move around the breast, one hour every day
  • While you are healing, you should wear a compression bandage or sports bra for extra support and positioning of the breast implant
  • Sleeping with torso slightly elevated to control bruising and swelling
  • Please don't lift things over 2-3 kilograms within two months. The lifting will make the breast implants move up
  • Avoid strenuous activities for at least two weeks
  • During the healing process, remember that your breast will be sensitive to physical contact or jarring movement for at least two weeks

Recover from Breast Augmentation

          You can return to regular activities within a few weeks and avoid strenuous activities for at least two weeks.

The breast implant might improve your body image and self-esteem, but keep your expectations realistic. Your breasts will continue to age after the implant, and weight loss or gain will also change the appearance of your breasts. If you feel unsatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you might need more correction surgery.

  • Keloid from the incision scar
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Soreness
  • Poor healing
  • Asymmetry

Why are quality implants and highly experienced surgeons crucial for breast augmentation success?

               Quality breast implants and a skilled and experienced surgeon are crucial for achieving the best surgical results. They help ensure that the implants are placed correctly and look natural and that the procedure is performed safely with minimal complications. High-quality breast implants are made of durable materials designed to look and feel like natural breast tissue.

               A skilled and experienced surgeon will have the knowledge and expertise to properly place the implants, create a natural-looking shape, and minimize the risk of complications. A good surgeon will also have a well-equipped facility, patient safety protocols, and a good track record of happy patients with good results. Making breast implants look natural can be difficult for several reasons. One reason is that breast tissue is complex and varies significantly from person to person, so it can be challenging to create a natural-looking shape and size that complements each individual's body.

               Another reason is that the implants' position and placement can significantly impact the final result. If the implants are placed too high or too low or are not positioned symmetrically, they may look unnatural. It also requires a high degree of skill and experience on the part of the surgeon to place the implant in such a way that it seems natural, preserving the patient's natural skin and breast tissue. Another reason is that the implant's size, shape, and texture also affect how natural the final result will look. The implant should be chosen based on the patient's body size, shape, and skin type, and it should be in proportion to the patient's body and should not look too large or too small. Additionally, the tissue of the breast can change over time due to aging, weight changes, and pregnancy, which can affect the appearance of the implants.

               Finally, it's important to note that natural-looking breast implants are not just a matter of technical skill but also of artistic judgment. A good surgeon should have a good sense of aesthetics and be able to create a natural-looking result that is in harmony with the patient's overall body proportions and shape. The importance of the best quality implants and the most experienced, highly respected board-certified surgeon cannot be understated. When it comes to your body, there can be no shortcuts.
