Breast augmentation – commonly referred to as a ‘boob job’ – is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed. It was one of the very first types of plastic surgery that people had done overseas, and now the practice of combining an overseas holiday with surgery has become very popular and readily accepted.
Breast augmentation uses fat transfer or implants to create a bigger bust. It is common in women who are unhappy with the size of their breasts after weight loss or pregnancy, or who are unhappy with the balance between their hips and breast size.
To correct breasts that are severely drooping, a breast lift with augmentation may be necessary to create lifted and fuller breasts.

There are two basic types of breast implants used in augmentation – saline and silicone. We recommend you do some initial research before discussing your options with your surgeon in order to achieve the best results for you.
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, many clients believe they feel more natural than saline implants.
The best candidate for a breast augmentation is someone who is:
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.
It is important to discuss with your doctors and with us any:
Once you arrive at your destination you will have a physical evaluation with your surgeon, where you will discuss your goals and concerns and 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. It is important that you head into surgery with realistic goals. It is during this examination that your surgeon may 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.
Length of surgery:
Depending on the extent of the procedure, breast augmentation 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 bandaged or in a surgical bra. It is important you discuss with your surgeon what to do and not to do during your recovery time as this is unique for each client. You should expect an average recovery of seven to ten days. During the first six weeks, you will probably be advised to 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. The full results of your augmentation may not be visible for many weeks. Feeling in your nipples may be temporarily reduced, but it usually returns to normal as your breasts heal.
Pain and discomfort can be managed with oral medications and you will be prescribed antibiotics to prevent any infection.
Length of stay:
Most surgeons recommend spending 7-10 days on holiday, during which time you will have regular follow-up appointments with your surgeon. 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, Malaysia & Bangkok.
Risks and complications are minimised by using the care and services of 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, please discuss them with your doctor and nurses.
Potential risks include:
Many people who travel to Malaysia or Thailand have more than one procedure to obtain a more balanced look and to take advantage of the cost savings. A breast lift can be done with a breast augmentation should your desired look require more of a lift. Non-surgical treatments are also commonly undertaken, such as dermabrasion, chemical peels or dental procedures.
"Everything went really well and I was very impressed with how efficient the whole process was, taking a lot of the stress out of it for me. I thought that the hospital was amazing, the staff were so kind and friendly and the whole place ran like a well oiled machine."
