Which Type of Breast Implants We Offer

Our surgeons use silicone, gel implants provided by Mentor from time to time other brands may be used but this is only in ver rare cases and if the surgeon would like to use another brand of implant he will discuss this fully with you during your consultation. The implants come with a life time guarantee. Implants come in either a round or a tear drop shape. The tear drop shape implants can give a more natural look although our surgeons are able to achieve equally as natural results with round implants. The choice of shape can depend on the type of outcome you would like for your boob job and also whether there is more upper or lower pole fullness. If you already have fullness in the upper pole of the breasts then tear drop implants may be better suited to you. If you would like to create more upper pole fullness then the round implants can achieve this. Your surgeon will advise which shape he thinks would work best in accordance to your desired outcome and frame. Tear drop implants can also be used to lift the nipple line.

Breast implants come in a huge variety of sizes, ranging from as small as 150cc up to and including 1000cc. Again, your surgeon can help you to decide which size would be best for you. As all of our bodies are different shapes and sizes one implant size may work well on one body but not on another but our surgeons are experts and they will help you to decide on the right size of breast implant to achieve your desired outcome and cup size.

The implants also vary in profiles, moderate profiles, moderate plus profiles and high profiles are available, an image of each can be seen below. The implants also vary in width. Our surgeons are breast surgery specialists who are highly skilled at selecting the perfect implant for each individual body so don’t worry if you don’t know which implant you would like or need. All of these decisions will be guided by your surgeon after he fully understands what your desired outcome.

What can I expect from breast surgery in Thailand?

Women who have breast surgery find that enhancement of their figure really can help to improve their self-esteem and self-confidence. Breast size can be increased by up to 2 sizes, so for example, from a B to a D. The final size of the implant is decided upon during consultation with your surgeon. When you meet your surgeon on the morning of your surgery he will discuss which outcomes you would like and which cup size and he will then take some very specific measurements in order to be able to assess which implant size is best for you. Quite often women have breast enlargement surgery in combination with a breast uplift to enhance not only the size of the breasts but also the shape and height of the bust line. A dream boob job can often exceed expectations with all our patients being extremely happy with the results. You can read all our testimonials here.

What does breast surgery involve?

During the procedure small incisions are made in the natural crease underneath the breast or underneath the armpit and either silicone or saline implants are inserted. During your consultation your surgeon will help you choose which type of surgery and which type of implant suits you. Prior to you surgery you will have a full face to face consultation with your surgeon during which the surgeon will, in collaboration with you, make a full and detailed surgery plan. Your surgeon will also be happy to discuss any questions which you may have. Usually, due to people wanting to save on travel time, we plan that you have your face to face consultation in the morning with your surgery later the same day. The surgery will last between 1-2 hrs and will require a general anaesthetic and therefore an overnight stay in hospital. If you are feeling well you will leave hospital the day after your surgery, from time to time it is known for clients to maybe stay an extra night and there are no additional costs for this.

Where are the implants placed?

Implants can be placed over the muscle, under the muscle or a dual plane placement can be used. The most common types of placements are under the muscle and dual plane. Under the muscle creates a natural look and the muscle helps to keep the implant in place. Dual plane means that half of the implant is under the muscle and half is over the muscle. Some surgeons prefer this placement as they feel they can get a better result with this. Over the muscle placement is often only used in special cases such as body builders or if there is a reason that over the muscle would look better due the client’s amount of breast tissue or muscle tissue.

Where are the incisions?

The most commonly used incision for breast surgery in Thailand is an inframammary fold incision (IMF.) The incision is made in the breast fold. This type if incision is well hidden and surgeons are able to easily place the implant this way, giving you the best results.

Sometimes the surgeons will recommend moving the areolar (nipples) to better positions when having breast augmentation. In this case an incision called a circumareolar incision is made the surgeon will then perform a circumareolar lift and also place the implants through this incision. The incision is great as it completely blends in with the nipple. Clients should be aware that when having a circumareolar incision there is a 50% chance that you won’t be able to breast feed after the surgery. Nipple sensitivity can also be affected, this can sometimes return with time.

If a breast lift and enlargement is needed then the surgeon will use the circumareolar incision plus there will be another incision from the bottom of the nipple vertically down to the breast crease, this is known as a lollipop incision. For more severe grades of breast ptosis then the surgeon will use the lollipop incision with the IMF incision, this is known as an anchor incision.

It is possible to have an incision in the armpit when having breast implants although this is rarely recommended as it isn’t the preferred method for the surgeons; it makes placing the implant difficult which can affect the results.

Our surgeons are extremely experienced and use the most advanced incision techniques; the scares a neat and small and fade considerably over time. Eventually the incisions are barely noticeable as they lighten in color with time.

Breast Implant Recovery & Risks

What will recovery be like?

Many women say that the sensation after surgery is more uncomfortable than painful. If however you do experience pain then you will be prescribed painkillers. Your breasts may be bruised and swollen after surgery. You will be advised not to fly for 6 days. It is best to return to work after 1-2 weeks unless you have a very strenuous or active job in which case you may be advised to take a longer time of work. You will wear a light dressing which needs to be kept dry until you have your follow up consultation with your surgeon. This will be between 5 – 6 days after your surgery. After this it is often advisable to wear a sports bra for a few weeks to really help to keep the breasts in shape. There will be slight scarring which will still be pink for 1-2 months but which may take many months to completely reduce.

Are there any risks involved?

Breast Augmentation (frequently called a boob job) is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures and generally is done without complications.. All surgery however does carry an element of risk. Complications can include capsular contracture where scar tissue hardens around the implant or rupture of the implant when a hole develops. With the introduction of newer implants both of these risks are now reduced. From time to time women can experience changes in sensation. The nipple can become more or less sensitive. This is almost always temporary and lasts for a few months but rarely this can be permanent. All of these risks are minimised by experienced surgical technique, specialist care and by using highly qualified surgeons and nursing staff. The risks are also minimised by making sure that you are in good general health before your operation. Your consultation with your surgeon will give you advice on how best to achieve this as well as letting you know of any risks which may apply to you.

For breast implants, Phuket is one of the worlds top choices!

Lotus Medical International has been at the forefront of offering breast implants, “Phuket’s specialty” when it comes to breast enhancement in Thailand. Breast enlargement is the most common of all the cosmetic procedures when looking at  the work the medical tourism  company does for its clients who come to Phuket; a tropical resort paradise on Thailand’s Andaman Coast.

Most prospective clients are keen to know what is likely to happen when they turn up for breast implants, Phuket’s optimal procedure in the realm of plastic surgery. Lotus Medical asks patients to supply photos and a complete medical history before arrival. Medical staff can judge from the information whether the surgery is advisable and have an opportunity to prepare beforehand.

On arrival for breast implants in Phuket ; surgeons arrange a thorough hospital interview. This clarifies the needs and wants of the patient. True many ladies fancy bigger breasts, but other factors need consideration. The enlarged breasts have to look good, be in proportion and be balanced in size.

Lotus Medical International explains that breast implants require the insertion of a sterile bag containing viscous gel. The bags are imported from America; these determine the size of the restructured breast. The size ranges from a small 100cc to an enormous 1200cc, but the most popular is 350cc.

Once our resident Phuket breast implant surgeons have an agreed plan in mind, they can start the reconstruction process from a medical point of view. Each operation is carefully planned and will last for a couple of hours on average. As the surgery is performed using a general anaesthetic, the patient can expect to overnight in hospital.

In Phuket, breast implants operations are pain free, thanks to the anaesthetic. However, the patient is warned to expect some swelling and bruising afterwards. The company tells women that they will have to wear a surgical bra, as this helps the healing process.

As breast enlargement is so widely performed, complications are minimal. However, before arriving for breast implants in Phuket, clients are advised to make preparations so they are in tip-top shape to ensure the surgery goes very smoothly. It’s a good idea to clean up the diet, stop smoking, cut back on alcohol and embark on an exercise program a couple of months before coming for breast implants, Phuket is a vacation paradise so expect the operation and the immediate recovery program to be healing process in itself.

But Grainne from Lotus Medical was really clear about everything and it sounded so good! And it was… I finally made the step. It makes it more easy when you have a good company who knows the selling product and the personal contact that I had during the whole treatment (before and after) was so good, I’m totally happy with the choice that I’ve made. The communication was more than clear, and the staff at the hospital were very friendly, the service was great.
