Here are some important points to think about when deciding if Breast Augmentation surgery is for you.

 

It is likely you will need a second breast augmentation surgery

There are many reasons why women might require a second breast augmentation surgery in Thailand, such as pregnancy or weight-loss. The time in which your breast implants will last will vary from women to women. The shape of the breast implant could distort over many years. You may even find that later down the line you would rather have larger or smaller breast and elect for a breast augmentation revision surgery.

 

Time off work/exercise

Usually you will only need one full week off work when having breast augmentation. However if you’re having breast augmentation in Thailand you will need to factor in days spent travelling. The recommended length of stay in Thailand after having breast augmentation is 5 -7 days. This gives you enough time to recover and schedule your follow up appointments. Once you return home you should be able to begin work straight away. If your work involves any physical activity then you would need to take longer off work. Put your exercise regime on hold; it is advised not to do any strenuous exercise for up to 6 weeks after breast augmentation surgery

 

Realistic expectations

It’s important to do your research and be able to explain to your surgeon exactly what you would like the outcome of your breast augmentation to be.

You may already know which sized implant, placement and incision you want. Be prepared for this all to change after your initial consultation with your surgeon in Thailand. The same sized implant will look completely different on each body type and frame.

Don’t expect to go big, fast. Your skin needs time to stretch and adjust. Your surgeon will only advise an implant size that your body can handle. If you feel at a later date you still want to go bigger, this is possible after your body has adapted to your current implants.

 

Under or over the muscle

Many women choose to have the implant placed under the muscle to give a more natural result. Under the muscle placement can mean you are slightly sorer for longer after the surgery.

 

Breast Augmentation Blues 

The days/week following you surgery you may not be feeling yourself. Anaesthetic and other medications can alter your mood. You will feel very tired and possibly more emotional. This is completely normal so try to remember this if you’re not feeling 100% in the days after your Breast Augmentation surgery.

You may also gain a few Kg’s in weight immediately after your surgery. Not only from the weight of your implants but also from swelling, fluid and bloating. This is normal so don’t stress if you have gained weight over-night. The swelling and fluid levels will reduce drastically in the weeks after your surgery.

Bruising can occur in strange places on your body where you might not expect it too. This is normal and nothing to worry about

 

Know your breasts before having breast augmentation

Make sure you’re aware of the current variations in your breast such as, nipple and cup-size. These differences could become more noticeable after breast augmentation. No two breasts are exactly alike.

 

Breast Augmentation and Breast feeding

If the incision is made in the breast fold or under your arm your ability to breast feed should not be affected. If however, an incision is made around your nipple your ability to be able to breast feed would likely be affected.

 

Breast Cancer screening after having breast augmentation

Routinely checking your breasts is very important. It’s a good idea to have a breast exam with your doctor before surgery and if you are due a mammogram, request this before surgery. Discuss with your surgeon possible effects of future mammograms regarding the implant placement

 

Change in posture

A natural and an augmented breast weigh near enough the same amount. If however, you choose a very large implant that is perhaps not in proportion with your frame you could experience changes to your posture. Your surgeon will advise you on which sized implants are suitable for your frame so not to alter your posture.

 

Here are some useful questions to answer to help you decide if breast augmentation is for you

  • Why do I want breast augmentation surgery?
  • How unhappy am I with my breasts at the moment?
  • Am I able to take the time off work for the surgery?
  • Am I fully informed of the risks and possible implications of breast augmentation surgery?

 



A mini face lift is much different to a lower face and neck lift or full facelift.  A mini face lift will only target the jaw area or lower third of the face; giving you a more defined jaw line by eliminating sagging and wrinkles in this area.

Aside from the obvious benefit of reversing the signs of aging with a mini face lift, a mini face lift has many other benefits when comparing it to a lower face and neck lift or full face lift. A mini face lift is much less invasive. Therefore the recovery is much shorter and the scaring is minimal. Incisions are made around the curves of your ears or in your hairline and after time are barely visible.

A mini facelift will give you instant results with a much simpler recovery, it does not require you to stay overnight in the hospital as is can be done under local anaesthetic. The results are noticeable straight away and there is less bruising, swelling and scaring as the surgery is less invasive. You will also not be required to wear the bandages and compression garments for as long as you would for a lower face or full face lift. Many clients think that a mini face lift is more appealing for these reasons. However, our surgeons very rarely recommend this procedure because although the results from a mini face lift are good they are not long lasting. You could expect the results to last for up to 5 to 10 years. Whereas the results from a lower or full face lift are likely to last a lifetime this is due to the fact that when having a lower face or full face lift muscular layer beneath the skin is manipulated as well as the removal and tightening of excess skin.

This is the main difference between a mini face lift and a lower face or full face lift; a mini face lift is a tightening of the skin only. It is a tailor made surgery and should only be performed by surgeons who are experience in this surgery and continually deliver good results. Lotus medical has spent vast amounts of time researching our surgeons and we have worked with them for 8 years now. If you are a suitable client for a mini face lift we will refer you to the most appropriate and experienced surgeon in this field.

A lower face or full face lift not only involves the tightening of the skin like a mini face lift but it also involves the manipulation of the muscular layer beneath the skin. As a mini facelift does not involve any adjustment to the muscular layer it means that the results of a mini face lift do not last as long as the muscular layer is what is mostly responsible for the sagging of the face.

The lower face and neck areas are areas in which the signs of ageing begin to become most noticeable. Most are not too affected when those fine lines and wrinkles begin to set in but it’s when your skin begins to lose its youthful tightness and sagging occurs that we really feel it’s time for action. This is exactly what a lower face lift does; it eliminates that sagging and loose skin around the jaw that is the give-away aging signs. To target the loose skin around the neck a neck lift would also be required. It is very rare that a lower face lift would be performed without a neck lift also. A lower face lift will also raise the corners of the mouth. A suitable candidate for a lower face lift would be someone who is concerned with the loose skin around their jaw line and neck and the turned down corners of the mouth. Usually a suitable candidate will still have some elasticity in their skin and they are not too concerned with other areas such as their eyelids and forehead. If you are concerned with the upper part of your face also, then a full face lift may be the option for you.

The lower face lift procedure

The lower face lift procedure not only tightens the skin but the lower layers beneath the skin such as the facial muscles. This gives a more natural and longer lasting result. A Lower face lift is carried out under local anesthetic and you will be required to stay in the hospital for 2 nights. Small incisions are made in front and behind the ears, when the skin is pulled tight excess skin will be trimmed away and the incisions will be sealed with sutures.

After care

Whilst you are in the hospital you will be continually monitored by our outstanding nursing staff. Your surgeon will visit you to make sure he is happy with the results and most importantly you are too. He will check your incisions and improvements and advise you on when and how long to wear your compression garment for. A compression garment is required after having lower face lift surgery to reduce swelling. It is important not to get the incisions wet as this will slow down the healing process. You may feel groggy immediately after surgery this is due to the anesthetic. You may also have visible swelling and bruising to your lower face. Effective pain relief medication is administered as you need it so you will not feel pain, you will feel more of a discomfort and certainly tiredness. It can also be common for patients to feel unusually emotional after having facial surgeries this again is due to the anesthetic and nature of the surgery. This would only last a day or two and it is not evident in all cases.

You would be required to stay in Phuket for a total of 14 days when having a lower face lift, this is so you have enough time to recover and visit your surgeon for follow up appointments. When you return home you may still have some swelling or bruising but this will have reduced considerably from the first week after your surgery. You may also still be required to wear your compression garment. Your surgeon will advise you on how long and how often you should wear this.

A Facelift can be a lower facelift, a neck lift, a brow lift, eye lid surgery or any combination of.

Most often a lower face and neck lifts are performed together in combination. Very rarely will our surgeons advise a neck of facelift alone.

These procedures are categorized the following way;

  • Facelift – a lower face and neck lift (with or without the eyelid surgery)
  • Full Facelift- a lower face, neck and brow lift (with or without eyelid surgery)

The recommended length of stay in Phuket for these procedures is 16 days. Clients are provided with a full treatment plan and accurate quote after the surgeon has reviewed images of their face and has understood their main concerns.

 Incisions

When having a facelift incisions are made around the ears to tighten the skin of the lower face. The incisions will be behind and in front of the ears and are barely visible after time.

When having a brow lift there are two types of incisions; endoscopic which is less invasive or a full incision which is more invasive. Upper eye lid surgery can also sometimes be referred to as a brow lift.

When having eyelid surgery incisions are made in the folds of the eyes and the excess skin is removed to give a more taught appearance. This procedure can be done under local or general anesthetic. The recommended length of stay in Phuket for this procedure is 9 days.

Recovery

Recovery from facelift surgery can be expected to be uncomfortable as there is quite a bit of bruising and/or swelling after receiving these procedures. However, pain relief medication is much more affective in Thailand than it is compared to that used in countries such as England, Australia and New Zealand.  A full head garment is to be worn after having facelift surgery to prevent and help with residual swelling. Each client will be advised by their surgeon as to how long they should wear this garment for, depending on which combination of procedures they have had.

Do you find that even with diet and exercise you cannot achieve the flat stomach you have always wanted? Tummy tuck surgery removes excess skin and fat from the tummy area to create a flatter, younger looking and more taut appearance.

Many people choose to combine tummy tuck surgery with liposuction to help them to achieve that new slimmer waist. You can decide if this is an option for you during your consultation with your surgeon. There are two different ways of doing a tummy tuck and again the best method for you will be decided during your consultation.

Who is tummy tuck surgery for?

Tummy tuck surgery is for anyone who has loose skin around the stomach area that they cannot shift through diet or exercise. Quite often people who have lost a lot of weight will have loose folds of skin around the stomach area and this operation is ideal for them. It is also for used for women who have stretched skin and muscles after being pregnant and who have no more plans to have children. Tummy tuck surgery can restore confidence to people who feel self-conscious due to a flabby overhanging stomach.

What can I expect?

You can expect a slimmer waist with a flatter and tauter appearance. You can expect excellent slimming and shaping results enabling greater self-confidence. The results are usually long lasting as long as you follow a balanced diet and exercise. If you do put on weight following the surgery fatty bulges can appear.

What does the surgery involve?

Tummy tuck surgery is done under general anaesthetic and requires an overnight stay in hospital and usually lasts for 1-2 hours.

In most cases an incision is made from hip to hip just around your bikini line. An incision is also made to free your tummy button. Loose skin and fatty tissue are removed, any damaged abdominal muscles are repaired and a new hole is cut for your tummy button. The incisions are then sutured closed.

Many people choose to have liposuction at the same time as their tummy tuck to create an even smaller waist.

Take a little walk

Immediately after tummy tuck surgery you will be very tired however, your surgeon will ask you to take a walk before leaving the hospital. This will get your body moving after being horizontal for so long. It will prevent deep vein thrombosis and help to get your bowels moving. Which, can be a problem after surgery and whilst taking pain relief medication.

Follow your surgeons post tummy tuck surgery instructions

Due to the effectiveness of pain relief medication you should be feeling fine after tummy tuck surgery, this may make you feel like you can go out and do things that perhaps your body isn’t ready for. Rest up it’s not worth hindering your recovery, risking infection, causing bleeding or delaying your healing.

Advice for a quicker and successful recovery after Tummy Tuck surgery

It’s always wise to follow a healthy lifestyle; if you eat right you will feel right. Before undergoing any type of surgery you should be in good physical health. Start to make healthier lifestyle changes before surgery. It is advised to not smoke or drink alcohol for at least two weeks prior to your tummy tuck surgery. To insure you are covered by our surgical guarantee you must refrain from smoking for 4 weeks prior to and 4 weeks after your surgery. You must stop drinking alcohol for 1 week prior to your surgery and for the complete post-operative period until you have finished your course of antibiotics.

Post tummy tuck surgery compression/support garments

You must wear your compression or support garments when instructed to do so by your surgeon. For tummy tuck surgery you may be advised to wear it for a couple of months so making sure you buy the correct size and a comfortable fit are important.

breast implants in Thailand

There has always been a long-standing controversy about people deciding to have Breast Implants in Thailand.  A lot of the media from overseas have chosen to paint a bad picture in regards to having Breast Implants in Thailand. Why do they do this? Well the simple answer is that the cosmetic surgeons at home do not want to loose business to their rival cosmetic surgeons in Thailand.

For many years women have ignored what has been shown on their local media and after doing their own research or speaking to friends they have decided that having breast implants in Thailand is actually a good option. The highly experienced surgeons here, coupled with the state of the art hospitals and cost effective surgery mean that Thailand has hundreds and thousands of women that have decided to come to Thailand for breast surgery.

Breast Implants in Thailand vs Australia

Recently in Australia one of the companies that offers breast implant surgery decided to lower it’s costs to be more in line with those in Thailand. In order to cost cut they used surgeons with little experience and often women were asked to leave on the same day as their breast surgery after having a general aneasthetic. This is something that just never happens in Thailand and which the surgeons here do not deem to be safe or acceptable. This Institute also made headline news in Australia after three of its patients were hospitalize due to serious illness after surgery, two of them because of errors with aneasthetic.

So something that therefore must be considered by anyone thinking about having breast implant surgery is…………… If deciding to have breast implant surgery and looking for a cost effective option, will you have a better experience if having breast implants in Thailand or is having surgery at home a better option?

Why would anyone consider having a tummy tuck Thailand!?!

Most patients who are interested in having a tummy tuck look for cosmetic surgeons in heir own country or region.

Liposuction-surgery-in-Thailand.jpg

As cosmetic surgery continues to gain a wide range of prominence and popularity among people in several countries, its operational cost is not spared in anyway. In recent years, there has been a great migration from several countries in Europe and America to the East for a cheaper liposuction surgery.

Surgery as a life-changing process has now been taken very seriously by a lot of people from different countries. The growth of quality cosmetic surgeons in Thailand is one major reason why the country has rapidly become a remarkable medical tourism nation. This has led to the establishment of several reputable companies and formidable clinics that specialize in carrying out liposuction surgery.

The evolution of liposuction over the last 15 years has been drastically improved by tending to be a very safe and effective surgical process which majorly deals with the removal of excess fat deposits from designated body areas so as to improve body physique, contour and overall body appearance.

Liposuction surgery in Thailand

In Thailand, clients are allowed to make their own choices on the type of liposuction procedure they want. The cannula which is a small stainless steel suctioning instrument is often used to get the job done.

Performing liposuction surgery in Thailand is extremely safe and healthy.

Before the operation a sterile liquid is infused in to the body, this reduces the likelihood of trauma and bruising.

Then the process of excess fat removal is then started by inserting the cannula through tiny inconspicuous incisions into areas that contain excess fat. Fat is extracted either through the use of a canula or a suction pump thereby resulting into an improved and smoother body contour as an aftereffect.

Liposuction is always carried out under a general aneasthetic and patients therefore remain in hospital for one or two nights after their surgery. During recovery a compression garment must be worn to reduce the buildup of fluid at the site of surgery. There is often a small amount of bruising and swelling. The surgeons encourage patients to engage in a short walk of about 1 – 2 miles in the days after surgery. They also ask that patients are here for a full seven days after surgery for proper follow up.

Due to the experience of the surgeons traveling to Thailand to undergo a liposuction surgery can produce better results with less bruising.
