Breast Augmentation in Koh Samui

Breast Augmentation is commonly known as a ‘Boob Job’ or Breast Implants. It is a surgical procedure to increase breast size that involves placing breast implants under the chest muscles or breast tissue. Many women undergo the procedure to make their breasts bigger and fuller, which will result in a boost of confidence. However, it can also be done for reconstructive purposes, such as after mastectomy for breast cancer.

There are two types of breast implants: saline and silicone gel. Both of the implants come in different sizes, which can be chosen according to the patient’s preference. The most popular choice is the silicone gel implant since they are considered to look more natural. However, it has a higher potential risk and requires a slightly larger incision than the saline implants. The procedure takes around one to two hours, and the patient will be given general anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon will make a cut under the breast (inframammary), under the arms (axillary), or around the nipples (periareolar). After making an incision, the breast implant will be put into a pocket above or below the chest muscle and center it behind the nipple.

Patients do not require to stay in the hospital after the procedure. It is important to stay in the Koh Samui for ten to fourteen days since you will have to attend regular check-ups with the surgeon during the recovery period. Patients may need to wear a surgical bra and take prescribed pain medications. It is vital to follow the surgeon’s aftercare instructions to avoid any complications. The stitches are normally removed during the patient’s one-week follow-up check-up. Breast augmentation has a success rate of 99%. Remember that the breast will continue to age after the augmentation and patients should also understand risk and complications. An alternative for Breast Augmentation is fat transfer.
