|Our Clinical Practice|
As a general rule, “ No key fits every lock ”. To achieve a well-augmented natural looking breast, good patient - doctor communication is the key.
Choosing the right size implant is the most important decision a patient and the plastic surgeon will make.
When the breast implants are too large for your breast tissue, the implants’ edges may be visible through your skin after your plastic surgery or the implant may be easily detected. It may also increase the effects of gravity on your body that may cause your breasts to prematurely droop or sag.
In our practice, we require a routine pre-operative health check-up to exclude serious underlying medical illness that may cause some complications during or after the operation. Breast augmentation is a major plastic surgery operation done under general anesthetics in our affiliated hospitals in Phuket, not at the clinic. You will be admitted in the hospital’s private room and operated on the same day. The surgery usually takes 2 hours at the operating theatre and in most cases patients can be discharged the next day after the surgery.
We prefer to use the highly recommended Cohesive Round Silicone Gel Breast Implant either textured or smooth manufactured by Mentor or Inamed. These breast implants are produced under strict quality control with a thicker casing containing cohesive silicone gel that reduces the chance of implant rupture and hard capsule formation. The gel also feels more like natural breast tissue. Due to the high rate of deflation and visible ripples, we rarely use saline breast implants
Get Educated in Breast Augmentation
The Surgery: Breast Enlargement also called as Augmentation Mammaplasty is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic surgery at our clinic, performed by using breast implants designed to increase the size of small or underdeveloped breasts or to restore and enhance breast volume in post-breastfeeding mothers.
The Incision Site: There are 3 different ways of inserting and positioning your breast implant where the incision will be made. Each site of implant insertion has advantages and disadvantages that will be discussed during consultation.
The main advantage of under the muscle placement is the slightly lesser chance of breast implant hardening (capsular contracture), no impediment of breastfeeding and it also prevents the edges of the breast implant being visible through the skin; whereas, the above the muscle placement has advantages in improving the upper half of the breast to be fuller and can narrow the breast cleavage as desired in some patients with less post-operative pain.
Know Your Breast Implant Choice
The Implant: Breast implants are medical devices with a solid silicone, rubber shell. The implant shell may be filled with either saline solution (sterile salt water) or elastic silicone gel. Both saline and silicone gel breasts implants are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The size of a breast implant is measured in cubic centimeters (cc) based on the volume of the saline or silicone filler. Breast implants maybe smooth or textured, round or teardrop in shape and has low, medium or high profile. Generally, we prefer to use round, textured or smooth surface cohesive gel breast implants. However, teardrop breast implants are sometimes recommended.
The Implant Life: Life expectancy of breast implants is influenced by the reaction of your body to the implant, the lifestyle you lead and your occupation. You would probably get about 10 years or more in the life expectancy of cohesive gel breast implants. When there is no change in the shape of your breast, no evidence of rupture or capsular formation, there is no need to change the implant. This is despite however long the implant has been in the breast.

The Breast Augmentation Package
Full payment of the operating expenses must be paid in full before the operation. This package is applicable for elective, uncomplicated patients only.
The Long Term Result of Breast Augmentation
In good candidates, we can guarantee the best outcome in breast augmentation will be visible after 1 year. Like any surgical procedure, breast augmentation is also associated with certain number of risks and complications despite maximum care. Possible complications include bleeding, infection, delayed healing and may occur in well below one percent of the cases. Our Team takes every precaution possible to prevent and minimize the risks of surgery. However, much of the responsibility for risk avoidance rests with you as well.
