Breast Enlargement

What is Breast Enlargement?

Also known as augmentation mammoplasty or breast augmentation, breast enlargement in Thailand involves using implants to volumize, tone, firm and enhance the attractiveness or appeal of the entire breast area. The surgery is for any women who wish to have bigger, firmer and more attractive breasts as the breast implants are the best way to have a long-lasting, safe and natural-looking augmentation to your breasts. However, if the breasts are severely drooping and sagging, an additional breast lift may be required. Breast lift surgery can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation.


Beauty surgeons blend surgical skills with artistic talent transforming the breast area into very feminine curves. The enticing look of the overall area and the contoured proportionality of this area to the rest of the body is what projects women’s alluring and sexy look.

 Preparation for a Breast Enlargement

The surgeon will provide a list of instructions on what to do before the surgery. These will cover such areas as smoking, medications, what to bring with you to the hospital and when to have your last meal before surgery. It is of utmost importance that you follow these instructions, and the ones you will be given after your surgery, which include the Post-operative care and follow-up.


  • For smokers: STOP smoking two weeks before surgery. You will need another two weeks after surgery to start smoking. Smoking increases the risks of complications. Chemicals present in smoke act as free radicals which interferes with the healing process. Prolonged healing may result in the formation of large, hideous scars. If your surgeon finds out that you are still smoking, he will not perform the surgery.
  • Stop drinking alcoholic beverages a week before your surgery.
  • The day before your surgery, do not drink alcohol and make sure you do not eat or drink anything at least six hours before your operation.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding



1. Incision is made either in the inframammary fold (Inframammary incision), around the areola (Periareolar incision) or in the armpit (Transaxillary incision). See Figure 1. Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome.

2. The surgeon will lift breast tissue and skin to create a pocket (subglandular, submuscular).

3. The implant is placed on the pocket made.

4. Incisions are closed with sutures.

5. Bandages are applied and fixed with surgical tape.


 Breast Enlargement Surgery Risks


  • Bleeding and hematoma formation.
  • Fluid accumulation.
  • Poor healing of incisions.
  • Keloid and hypertrophic scar formation.
  • Changes in nipple or breast sensation which may be temporary or permanent.
  • Breast asymmetry.
  • Capsular contracture.
  • Implant leakage or rupture.
  • Rippling (wrinkling of the skin over the implant).
  • Pain, which may persist.
  • Risks associated with anesthesia and possibility of revisional surgery.


 After Breast Augmentation Surgery

There will be swelling and some bruising after surgery most of which will subside within the first few months. The rest will subside over time and final results will be seen around 6 months or more after surgery. It is recommended to follow specific instructions given by the surgeon, for example, how to care for your breasts following breast augmentation surgery, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, and when to get a follow-up with your plastic surgeon. Patients are advised to ask specific questions regarding recovery period as follow:


  •           Where will I be taken after my surgery is complete?
  •           What medication will I be given or prescribed after surgery?
  •           Will I have dressings/bandages after surgery? When will they be removed?
  •           Are stitches removed? When?
  •           When can I resume normal activity and exercise?
  •           When do I return for follow-up care?


Post-Operative Care for Breast Enlargement Surgery


  •           Get enough rest; avoid alcohol and smoking for at least 1 month.
  •           Start ambulating as soon as possible.
  •           Avoid strenuous activities for 4 weeks.
  •           Refrain from physical contact with breasts for 3-4 weeks.
  •           May shower 48 hours after removal of drain tubes.
  •           Bras may be worn about 1-2 weeks after surgery when most of the swelling has gone down.
  •           Only support bras without wire should be used after sutures are removed.
  •           May wear bra with wire, 4-6 months after surgery.
  •           Proper breast massage is very important after surgery for a good breast shape and lower risk of capsular contractures

Position 2: Push breasts away from each other.

Position 3: Push both breasts downwards.

Position 4: Push both breasts upwards.

Q1: What are the advantages and disadvantages of silicone and saline implants?

A1: Silicone has a more natural feel and look. In the occurrence of leakage, saline is much less injurious to the surrounding tissues.


Q2: What are some points to consider about placing implants over or under the muscle?

A2: Implant movement when pectorals are flexed is more obvious with implants below the muscle. Women with scant natural breast tissue will have less obvious “augmented look” if implants are placed below the muscle. Mammograms are reportedly slightly less accurate if implants are above the muscle.


Q3: Will I be asleep during surgery?

A3: You will be asleep under general anesthesia.


Q4: How long will I stay in the hospital?

A4: You will be admitted for 1-2 nights, after which you may go back to your hotel. You may do some shopping and sightseeing while waiting for your follow up schedule, but take care not to do any lifting, swimming and other strenuous activities.


Q5: How many days after operation can I leave Bangkok?

A5: You need to return for check-up 7-10 days after surgery, after which you can travel or return to work.


Q6: How long is the recovery period?

A6: Most patients can walk around slowly the day after surgery, and steadily improve over the next few days. There will be swelling and bruising, most of which will resolve in about 2 weeks. Limitation of physical activity and contact with breasts must be observed for about 4 weeks. . Full wound maturation and final results will gradually occur over 6-12 months.


Q7: How do I care for myself after the operation?

A7: Your surgeon will teach you a special breast massage technique and prescribe a support bra for a few months.


Q8: What could go wrong?

A8: Some risks of surgery include bleeding, adverse response to anesthesia, infection, delayed healing, asymmetry, nerve injury, numb areolae and nipples, contractures or keloid at incision site, contracture around the implant, rippling of skin over some parts of the implant, leakage, and need for revision surgery.


Q9: How do I prepare for surgery?

A9: To avoid complications and reduce risk factors you need to stop smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, taking hormonal pills, herbal supplements, and medicines (other than those that your doctor allows you continue), at least two weeks before your schedule. People with diseases need surgical clearance from their medical specialist.
