Breast reduction reduces pain and increases confidence

While thousands of women seek cosmetic procedures for a fuller cleavage, many want to reduce their size with breast reduction surgery. Breast hypertrophy (over sized breasts) can cause severe muscle pain and long-term health issues that can be significantly improved with surgery. Medical tourism agency Gorgeous Getaways has helped hundreds of women to plan breast reduction surgery, with award winning medical facilities in Phuket, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.
Difficulties caused by breast hypertrophy
Under the strain of heavy over sized breasts routine activities can become painful and uncomfortable. Women can also find their professional and social lives impacted, as they become targets for unwanted attention and even harassment because of the size of their breasts. Common problems include:
  • Neck, shoulder and back pain
  • Discomfort from straining bra straps
  • Rashes under the breast
  • Difficulty finding large bra sizes and clothes
  • Headaches
  • Numbness or tingling in the fingers
  • Unwanted attention
  • Self-consciousness
  • Depression
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Loss of confidence
  • Difficulty exercising
Breast reduction surgery
Breast reduction surgery aims to remove breast fat, tissue and skin to create smaller, firmer and lighter feeling breasts. Once the breasts have had time to settle (approximately two months) they will be rounder in shape and easier to manage. As well as alleviating health problems, a breast reduction will create a more proportional body shape and symmetrical breasts. Surgeons can change the firmness and shape of the breast, and even reduce areola size. Often patients will receive liposuction to the hips or stomach for a more balanced overall result.
Preparation for surgery
Your consultation with a cosmetic surgeon will include questions about medical history and current medications. It is important to be completely honest about every aspect of your health so the surgeon can decide on the best and safest surgical plan. Before booking your surgical consult remember to:
  • Provide accurate and honest medical information
  • Research benefits and risks of procedure
  • Prepare a list of questions and concerns
  • Clarify your expectations- tell the surgeon exactly what you expect from the results.
Overview of breast reduction procedure
Directly before surgery your doctor will make markings on the breast indicating where the incisions will be made. Markings will be around and above the areola, below the nipple and underneath the breast crease. During the procedure the surgeon removes excess tissue and overstretched suspensory ligaments before transposing the areola to higher position. The surgery will be carried out under general anesthetic and you will be required to stay overnight at the hospital. After the surgery stitches remain around the areola and nipple, underneath the nipple and under the breast.
Recovering from breast reduction surgery
Every individual will experience recovery differently, with varying levels of bruising and swelling. A surgical bra and prescribed pain relief will help to ease discomfort, but Asprin must be avoided as it can increase the risk of bleeding. Heavy lifting may cause swelling and pressure in the breasts, so is to be avoided for at least one month, although patients are able to return to other day to day activities within three weeks.

Would your Breasts pass the Ptosis Test?

Victoria Pakohomova is a Beauty Vacation Adviser for Taqtik. She shares with us some information about a common problem with clients who travel for cosmetic surgery- ptosis. This condition is more commonly referred to as breast sagging, and here she walks us through a test to see if your breasts pass the ptosis test…

Hi beautiful Ladies, Victoria here with the ptosis test! Clients often want to know why their surgeon has recommended a breast lift, along with the breast augmentation they had originally booked. They send in pictures of their breasts and are surprised when doctors recommend a lift due to ptosis (breast sagging). Today I will help you to decide whether you too suffer from ptosis, and what can be done!

Common causes of ptosis
  • Childbirth and breastfeeding.
  • Bodyweight fluctuations- especially after losing a lot of weight in the short period.
  • Genetics.
  • Hormonal fluctuations.
  • Implant removal.
  • Aging.
  • Gravity- yes! The power of gravity influences breast tissue and inevitably pulls it down based on the laws of nature.
The breast ptosis test

Let us have a personal test on our breast condition.

Ideally the nipple should a few centimetres above the inframammary crease (the crease just under your breast where they meet your chest).

  1. Take off your bra and stand in front of the mirror.
  2. Place a ruler in the crease, where the breast and ribcage meet.
  3. Let your breasts hang over the ruler
  4. If your nipples are less than three centimetres above the ruler you may have ptosis.
  5. If you don’t have ptosis but aren’t happy with size – can just proceed with breast augmentation.
  6. If you don’t have ptosis but aren’t happy with size- a breast lift may be required.

Breast ptosis stages.

First degree ptosis- the nipple is at or slightly below the infra mammary fold, then you may be able to have a breast augmentation without internal lifting.

Second degree ptosis- the nipple is one-three centimeters below the fold. You are a candidate for lifting with or without implants.

Third degree ptosis– the nipple is lower than three centimeters. These cases are candidates for breast lift or even a super breast lift with or without implants.

Ladies, if you do find that you have breast ptosis it’s not a problem! There are multiple destinations available on the Taqtik marketplace that can help with breast augmentations and breast lifts.

And the result from MY test? First degree breast ptosis, which is not surprising after four years of breastfeeding, body weight fluctuations and aging!

Transgender and Breast Procedures in Phuket

 
Victoria Pakohomova is a Beauty Vacation Adviser at Taqtik in Phuket, Thailand. Plastic surgeons in Phuket are increasingly in demand, so Victoria is sharing her knowledge of the surgeons at Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute (PPSI) beginning with the director of Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute (PPSI) Dr. Sanguan.
 
Gender reassignment surgery

Thailand is well known in the world for its transgender tolerance. Gender reassignment surgeries (GRA) are accepted in Buddhism as a normal human right. GRA surgeries have a long and successful history in Thailand, and transgender patients from all over the world travel here for this life-changing procedure. One of the most respected and world-recognized surgeons that specialize in this area is Dr. Sanguan Kunaporn- the Director of PPSI.

Dr Sanguan graduated from Bangkok Medical University in 1984 with a Surgeons Diploma, then worked and studied in plastic surgery from 1988 to 1991. His practical experience in Aesthetic surgery has continued for over 28 years and Dr Sanguan is renowned as an innovative specialist in GRA and mammoplasty procedures.

Breast procedures

Thousands of women have enjoyed amazing results after their breast reconstruction, revision, reduction, lift and augmentation surgeries. Dr. Sanguan regularly takes on challenging and complex cases previously rejected by other clinics or surgeons. He also ensures that scars are thin and small, becoming almost invisible with time.

I especially love working with Dr. Sanguan because of his thoughtful and warm approach with clients and his attention to detail. His main motivation is to meet his client’s expectations and will always discuss his surgical methods and possible outcomes in detail.

Dr Sanguan believes that the beauty in breasts is not in their size, but in their harmonious shape. The curves of the breast should be relevant to a woman’s height, weight and body shape. During the consultation, he uses computer simulation programs for visualization of the surgery results, giving the patient various options. Dr Sanguan’s patients are consistently happy with their results and and recommend him as the best surgeon for mammoplasties. I would highly recommend booking a surgery vacation with Dr. Sanguan at least six months in advance due to his busy schedule.

Because Dr. Sanguan is such an easy-going person, and always eager to help, you’ll feel comfortable asking him as many questions as you need. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to write down and I can refer them to Dr Sanguan, one of the world’s best breast surgeons.

New Breasts: New Confidence for Laura!

Laura has been wanting to change her breast size ever since she was a teenager, and so after working hard and saving she decided to book a trip to Thailand to have a breast augmentation. This is her story, pictures and videos that show amazing results!

“I wanted to do this for myself, I knew this would be my breast size if I didn’t have the procedure, so I wanted to save up the money and do it for me!”

After the procedure Laura was delighted with the results from her Breast Augmentation, feeling that it was better than she could have expected.
Her biggest concern pre-surgery had been the fear of being put under aesthetic, but with the support of the hospital staff and her mum who came along as support, she felt safe and secure.
Laura’s Client Service Manager in Thailand visited Laura and her mum regularly at their accommodation and took them to lunch with other clients who were having their own surgical procedures.
The doctors and nurses took great care of her, and she would feel confident in using a medical facilitator like Taqtik again if she wanted another procedure.

“The hospital care was better than I could have imagined, I was looked after extremely well. All the doctors, and nurses were really supportive”

Four weeks post procedure Laura was no longer in any pain. And when we caught up with her seven weeks after, Laura was feeling great. She has had great reactions from friends and family, who all agree that her new breasts look very natural. This is exactly the look that Laura was hoping to achieve. Six months after her procedure in Thailand, Laura is seeing the world from the deck of a super yacht in Spain!

“Everything is fantastic! I have healed so well and I’m really happy! They look and feel so much more natural and have dropped lots which I’m happy with!”
