How does Breast Reduction perform in Bangkok, Thailand?
There are a number of techniques (describe below) your surgeon may use, depending on the size of your breasts and your desired outcome. Breast reduction surgery is carried out under general anesthetic. It takes about 3.5 to 5 hours long depending on individual circumstances and how extensive the procedure is.
• Anchor type or inverted T reduction – is the most common type of breast reduction, resulting in an anchor-shaped scar starting around the areola, going down vertically and then horizontally across your natural breast crease.
• Vertical pattern breast reduction – results in a circular scar around the areola, and a vertical scar directed downwards. This technique has the advantage of leaving no scarring under the breast and a lower chance of wound complications. However, this technique may leave a small fold of skin, initially, at the lower end of the vertical scar.
• Circumareolar reduction – only results in a circular scar around the areola. This technique is only suitable when removing a small amount of tissue.
Your surgeon will make the incisions at the agreed sites on your breasts. Once the skin is removed, the nipples are re-positioned. The size of the areola may be reduced to suit the new shape of your breasts.
Once Breast Reduction in Thailand is complete, the incisions are closed with stitches and your breasts are wrapped in a special supportive bandage. Fine plastic tubes may be left in each breast for up to 48 hours – these allow blood and fluids to drain into a bag. You will need to stay in hospital for a night or two for monitoring,
