What to expect when having Breast Augmentation in Phuket


Lotus Medical organizes for you to have a free online consultation before you make any decisions about having Breast Augmentation or any cosmetic procedure in Phuket.  We provide you with free advice and feedback from our top surgeons. Have a surgeon in mind? No problem, we can put you in touch with him or we can recommend the surgeon we feel will best suit your needs. Once you have received your surgeon’s feedback then we secure your surgery date.

Once your date for your Breast Augmentation surgery has been secured you can go ahead and book your flights and accommodation, we tell you how long you will be required to stay in Phuket for, this will depend on your surgeon and procedure type. We can refer you to our travel specialist if you would like help with booking your flights and accommodation. All you need to do is forward us your flight and hotel details and we will organize all of your transfers.

Usually our clients will arrive the day before their consultation; we will collect you from the airport and drop you to your hotel. Our drivers will then collect you the next morning and take you to the hospital where you will be greeted by your English medical host*.  Once you have been registered at the hospital the nursing staff will take you through the standard pre-surgery health checks; this includes a blood pressure reading, blood tests, an ECG and a chest x-ray. You will then have your consultation with your surgeon. You can ask as many questions as you need, decide on a final surgical plan and gather all the information. Once you are happy with the surgical plan you will be asked to pay for the surgery. Most clients pay by credit or debit card.

Now you are all ready to go, you will be shown upstairs to your room, your medical host will leave you in the capable hands of the nursing staff as they prep you for surgery. After surgery you will be taken to the recovery room for a while before returning to your room. The nurses will check on you throughout the night. This process is for general anesthetic, if your procedure is under local then you do not need a room or an over-night stay. Breast Augmentation is performed under general anesthetic.

The next day your surgeon and your medical host will come to see you. Depending on which procedure you had you may be able to check out of the hospital the next day. For Breast Augmentation surgery you are only required to stay in the hopsital for one night. Once your surgeon has said that you are ok to return to your hotel, the nursing staff will organize your prescribed medication to take home with you and our drivers will take you back to your hotel. Your next follow up appointment will be organized and you will be told what time our drivers will collect you for your follow up appointment.

You will be given a mobile phone to take with you so that you can call your medical host at any time if you have any questions or concerns. Your medical host will meet you at the hospital for your follow up appointments and make sure your airport transfer for when you leave Phuket has been organized for you.

After your last follow up appointment you will return the mobile phone, collect any more prescribed medications you might need, return to your hotel and get ready to return home. Once you are home if you ever have any questions or concerns about your cosmetic surgery in Phuket you may email your medical host or other staff members at Lotus. We can get in touch with your surgeon; forward him images and provide you with any post-surgery advice or feedback that you might need. It is extremely rare for any of our clients to have any problems after returning home and you won’t need to see any surgeons or doctors at home regarding your surgery. We often have a few common questions about recovery which are normal so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions that you might have.

Your surgery will usually take place either the same day as your consultation or the following day.

It is important to remember not to eat anything after 12 AM on the day of your surgery unless told otherwise by the surgeon or hospital staff. After the surgery, you will stay as a patient at the hospital for the designated number of nights.

Opting to have cosmetic surgery is always a big decision. As you have chosen to book your surgery through Lotus Medical International you can be rest assured that your surgery will be performed by top class surgeons in a superb hospital. You can also be confident that you will receive the highest level of care.

There are some things that you can do to enhance your experience. We have put together a small list of do’s and don’ts to facilitate you during your surgery and recovery.

 Do’s – recommended by Lotus and our Top Class Surgeons:

  • Drink plenty of water to keep yourself well hydrated in the days before and after your surgery.
  • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in the days before and the weeks after your surgery. If at all possible eat raw foods; the nutrients that these provide can help the body to heal quicker.
  • Relax as much as possible for the days before your surgery and get plenty of sleep. We know that it is only natural to get a bit nervous but do your best to relax, you are in good hands.
  • Why not try a Thai massage the day before to help to rid your body of toxins and to help you get in to a really relaxed state before your surgery.
  • Make sure that you have a lot of loose fitting clothes with you. Your movement may be slightly restricted after surgery, depending on the type of surgery that you have, it is best to have clothes that are easy to get on and off.
  • If you are in any pain or feel sick at any time after your surgery ask for medication. Although rare this can sometimes be a side effect of the pain relief medication. If you are no longer in the hospital and you feel like you need more medication, call your Lotus Medical Representative and they will organise it for you.
  • Follow the advice that our top class surgeons have given you before surgery
  • Give yourself ample time to rest and recover after your surgery. Try to do as little as possible for as long as possible. You will be able to resume most activities within a few days but please give yourself time to rest every day.
  • Inform your flight company that you have had surgery. Flight companies like to know this information and quite often they will try to accommodate you by giving you more room on the plane and by making sure you are well looked after during your flight.
  • Ask our top class surgeons if they recommend that you take aspirin or wear flight stockings during your flight home.
  • Call your Lotus Medical Assistant if you need anything.
  • Enjoy the results and the new you!

 

Don’ts- recommended by Lotus and our Top Class Surgeons:

  • Smoke or drink alcohol for the days before and after your surgery if at all possible. Capsular contraction after Breast Augmentation Surgery is twice as common in women who smoke so if you can, try to stop in the weeks immediately before and after your surgery.
  • Many people choose to stay in a spa to help them on their road to recovery after their surgery and this is a great idea. Just be aware that any type of massage is contraindicated for a couple of weeks after surgery as it can increase the chances of blood clot formation.
  • Don’t try to do too much in the days after your surgery. It takes time for the body to heal after surgery, please listen to what your body is telling you and take time to relax; it will pay dividends in the long run.
  • Don’t fly too soon after your surgery. The major airlines recommend that you do not fly for 10 days after major surgery. We endorse this however you can fly home as soon as your stitches have been removed.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask us or our top class surgeons questions no matter how small. We have an experienced team on hand to support you before, during and after your surgery. If you have any questions, even if they may seem silly, ask either one of your medical team or your Lotus Medical assistant.
