Types of Breast Surgery Offered in Thailand

Thailand is a leading destination for medical tourism. One of the most popular procedures on offer in the country is breast surgery.
There are three main categories of breast surgery – augmentation, reconstruction and reduction.

Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation surgeries aim to improve the appearance, contour and size of a woman’s breasts. There are several reasons for undergoing this procedure. Some women do it because they consider their breasts to be small when compared to their body shape. Others go for it after the breasts lose shape due to pregnancy and breastfeeding. In some cases, augmentation is useful in making breasts symmetrical to each other.
After the surgical incision, the doctor inserts a silicone implant to correct the augmentation of the breasts. Similar to other surgeries, it has its risks and uncertainty of success. The implants can also make it difficult to detect breast cancer.

Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction aims to recreate breasts according to the specifications of the client. It is also useful in restoring the nipples, whose sensitivity can reduce when the surrounding nerves or milk glands have been removed or severely injured.
Reconstruction is often done using external implants or transplants from other parts of the patient’s body. In the case of an implant, it is sized to ensure that it matches the other breast. Transplants are usually sourced from the back muscle, lower abdominal wall, or a segment of the buttock.

Breast Reduction
Large breasts are a burden to any women. Besides, they can cause back and neck pain, skin irritation, numbness, and overall weakness. Breast reduction aims to correct such defects by removing excess fat and skin as well as epithelial tissues.
As compared to other breast surgeries, reduction makes the highest number of incision and leaves several scars on the patient’s body. That said, it does not affect breast sensation, nipple sensitivity and milk production. The side effects of this procedure include the inability to breastfeed, scarring and pain.
The reduction surgery improves the appearance, volume and shape of breasts without affecting its function and sensitivity. After the surgery, most women often feel less of a burden from their breasts.
