Breast Augmentation

Most commonly referred to as a ‘boob job’, a breast augmentation uses fat transfer or implants to create a bigger bust and is one of the world’s most common cosmetic surgery procedures. It is common in individuals who are unhappy with the size of their breasts after weight reduction or pregnancy. It is also common in women who are unhappy with the balance between their hip and breast size.

It is important to note that a breast augmentation does not correct breasts that are severely drooping. In this case a breast lift may be necessary as well to create lifted and fuller breasts.

Breast Augmentation:

There are two basic types of breast implants that are used in augmentation, and while this is a decision to discuss with your surgeon in order to achieve the best results, it is important to do your research. 

Saline: These implants are filled with saltwater solution and are slightly cheaper than silicone implants. 

Silicone: These implants are filled with silicone gel, either cohesive gel or highly cohesive form-stable gel. While these are a little more expensive, people believe they feel more natural than saline implants. 


Best Candidates:

The best candidate for a breast augmentation is someone who is:

  • Physically healthy, emotionally stable, and well-informed about the procedure
  • At a stable weight, and has been for at least one year
  • Unhappy with the size of their breasts
  • Noticing asymmetry in their breasts
  • Looking for a more rounded breast shape

As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important to remember that your surgery will not turn you into someone else and you should not rely on your procedure to change your life. If you are considering undergoing a procedure it is imperative you speak to someone you trust, are happy in your life and are simply seeking to enhance your appearance and confidence, rather than looking to completely change who you are. It is equally important you are psychologically ready.


Preparing for your Procedure:

It is important to discuss with your doctors and with us any:

  • Medical conditions you have
  • The medication you are taking - prescription, herbal and non-prescription

Once you arrive at your destination you will have a physical evaluation with your surgeon, where you will discuss your goals and concerns where you will finalise the plan for surgery. At this examination, your surgeon will determine the best procedure for you and explain it to you in detail, including any limitations - after all, it is important that you head into surgery with realistic goals. It is during this examination that your surgeon will also make recommendations for other procedures. 

In the lead-up to your surgery, it is important you do the following:

Stop smoking. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and increase the possibility of complications


What to Expect:

Length of surgery: 

Depending on the extent of the procedure, it takes between one and one and a half hours. Depending on anaesthesia used, it can be an outpatient procedure or you may be required to stay one night in the hospital.

Recovery and post-op care:

After your surgery, you will be in a surgical bra or bandaged. It is important you discuss with your surgeon what to do and not to do during your recovery time as this varies person to person. But you should expect an average recovery of seven to ten days. During the first six weeks, it will likely be recommended you avoid exercise or lifting anything heavy, after this time you should be able to resume normal activity. Bandages are often removed after several days, and after that, it is often recommended you wear an athletic or support bra until swelling subsides. 

It is imperative to understand that it may take several months for your breasts to settle into their new place and the full results of your augmentation may not be visible for many weeks. Also, feeling in your nipples can be temporarily reduced, but it usually returns as your breasts heal. 

Pain and discomfort can be managed with oral medications and you will also be prescribed antibiotics to prevent any infection.

Length of stay:

Most surgeons recommend spending 7-10 days, as you will have regular check-ups throughout your holiday.  To get the most out of your recovery time we suggest you partake in gentle exercise, yoga classes and treat yourself to some pampering. If you are feeling up to it, there is plenty to see and do in Phuket and Bangkok.


Preconditions and risks:

Risks and complications are minimised by using our highly-skilled, trusted doctors and nurses. However, with every precaution taken complications can still occur. These are rare and few patients experience any issues. If you have any concerns about your procedure and the possible preconditions and risks, discuss them with your doctor and nurses.

Potential risks include:

  • Scaring
  • Infection
  • Fluid collection (seroma formations)
  • Bleeding
  • Incorrect placement of implant
  • Implants rupturing or leaking
  • Skin wrinkling over the implant
  • Asymmetry
  • Changes in nipple and/or breast sensation
  • Skin discolouration

It is important to read the general preconditions and risks page before any surgery.


Other procedures to consider:

Many people who travel to Malaysia have more than one procedure because of the cost advantages and also for a more balanced look. A breast lift can be done with a breast augmentation should the desired look require more of a lift. Non-surgical treatments are also commonly undertaken, such as dermabrasion and chemical peels or dental procedures.
