If you would like to have your breasts enlarged and are contemplating beautiful breast augmentation surgery (called เสริมหน้าอกสวย in Thai), there is much to consider, not least the plastic surgeon who will carry out the procedure. We have all heard of the horror stories when an unfortunate patient is treated by an unqualified practitioner, so what can you do to ensure the surgeon is both qualified and experienced in breast augmentation?

Medical Council of Thailand

You probably know that Bangkok is the global hub for cosmetic plastic surgery, and any plastic surgeon must be registered with the Medical Council of Thailand in order to practice legally. The clinic’s website would have this information, along with client reviews, which you should read, and when you do find a clinic that feels right, you can make an appointment to consult with the resident plastic surgeon.

Silicone Implants

Breast implants can either be medical-grade silicone or a saline solution in a bag, and the majority of women choose silicone, as it mimics perfectly the look and feel of flesh. When you see the surgeon, he will show you many before and after images, which helps you to identify the exact changes you are looking to make. The surgeon will also make you aware of the risks that come with all forms of surgery, and if satisfied, the surgeon would explain the process, and you would decide whether the incisions are under the crease of the breast, or in the armpits.

Initial Consultation

Once you make contact with the clinic, the surgeon would make an appointment with you at the clinic, during which he can assess your needs and if all is well, the surgeon would recommend a treatment. You would be shown many before and after images, which helps you to identify specific changes you would like to make, and when everything is agreed, the clinic would schedule the surgery.

Pre-Op Instructions

You will be given a list of pre-op instructions to prepare for the surgery, and if you are on medication, you may have to cease taking it for the duration of the treatment. If you smoke, you should quit a few weeks prior to the surgery, and alcohol consumption is not advised during the weeks leading to the date of the surgery. All you need to know will be on the list, and should you have any questions, simply call the clinic.
