What is Reduction Mammaplasty in Thailand

During breast reduction surgery in Thailand, excess breast skin, fat, and glandular tissue is removed to reshape, reduce and contour your breasts so they are in proportion to your body size and in turn alleviating the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

Popular reasons for having breast reduction surgery

  • Disproportionately large breasts for your body size.
    which results in chronic neck, back or shoulder pain because of the added burden on your muscles and bones and in turn this causes you to slouch and hunch your back due to the excessive weight on your front. Painful and annoying bra strap indentations.
  • Painful and annoying bra strap indentations.
    Having to wear a support bra all the time means that your bra tends to cut against your skin.
  • Skin irritation beneath the breasts.
    Not only are large breasts uncomfortable they can all cause skin irritation underneath the breasts when the folds of skin keep rubbing.
  • Noticeable size difference between breasts.
    Some women have one breast that’s significantly larger than the other. Breast reduction surgery can help balance out the proportions.

How is a Breast Reduction inThailand performed?

There are a number of different methods to perform breast reduction surgery. Naturally the method for you depends on the current status of your breasts and your best outcome.

In assessing your procedure your surgeon will carefully check the size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin, and the placement of the nipples and areolas.

If you are overweight, your plastic surgeon may suggest that you lose weight before having surgery.

During a Thailand breast reduction, incisions can be made:

  • Around the areola only
  • Around the areola with a vertical incision to the breast crease
  • Around the areola with a vertical incision to the breast crease followed by a horizontal incision across the breast crease.

After the incision is made, the nipple may be moved to a new postion. If so required your surgeon will reduce your areola by excising skin at the outside area. The excess skin, fat, and tissue is removed and the breast is reshaped to a natural contour.

Occasionally, for very large breasts, the nipple and areola may need to be removed and transplanted to a higher position on the breast (nipple graft).

Following the incision it may in some case be neceeary to remove excess fat. This fat will be removed by use of liposuction. If your surgery requirment is primarily due to fatty tissue then it may not be necessary excise skin and liposuction only will be performed. Your surgeon will decide the best approach for your particular case.

The incisons made by your surgeon are permanent however usually you will expereine a very significant fading of the cut line over the next year.

Breast Reduction - Aftercare

Wearing of a suitable sports bra is recommended in the period of 6 – 12 weeks after surgery. This bra should place an even – but not too strong – amount of pressure on your breasts thereby counteracting excessive scarring. Sports activities should be avoided for at least 8 weeks after surgery. Any swelling and bruises should recede in the first weeks after surgery. A normal shower and bodily hygiene regime can typically be resumed after a few days.

If self-dissolving stitches are not used, the stitching material can be removed manually after about five weeks. After surgery you will be bruised and swollen and sore (for the first few days) but medication will keep the pain manageable. It takes different lengths of times for bruising to go away however after a week it is gone or quite faint. You should not take up smoking again (most ladys take this as opportunity to stop completely) however if you do you should definitely avoid smoking for the first 3 weeks after the operation as this can negatively impact the healing of the wound.

Please talk to your doctor about full details on your aftercare.
