After Weight loss Surgery options

post weightless surgery

Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and after working hard to lose so much weight either by diet, exercise or weight loss surgery, you may be discouraged to find that your skin drapes down in unattractive folds or looks damaged with stretch marks. This doesn’t happen to everyone, but if it happens to you, what do you do about it? Do you live with it or do you have it taken care of through plastic surgery?

Excess skin isn’t just a cosmetic issue. If your skin starts to sag, hygiene can become a major issue. Any skin fold can be prone to rashes, which are usually a type of yeast infection. Common areas are under the breasts, in the belly button, and above the pubic area and groin. Yeast infections occur as these areas get very hot and moist.

Chafing is another major problem, and this can occur between the thighs, under the arms, and in areas that rub against the bra. Wearing longer fitted garments on the arms and legs can decrease irritation and breakdown of the skin in these areas, but again, you may decide that surgery is your best option.

Plastic surgery following weight loss surgery will require individualised body contouring. In body contouring, excess skin and pockets of fat are removed from the abdominal area, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, and breasts. Body contouring may be done in one or multiple surgeries depending on your requirements. It can require several days’ hospitalisation, weeks off work, and a year until scars heal. A complete body contouring cost thousands of dollars. The total number of surgeries is usually spread over several months.

To determine Post Weight Loss Surgery cost will require a through assessment by your surgeon who will determine which surgeries will be of benefit and which order is best to have them to get the results that you after.

Where do you begin for body contouring after weight loss?
A Free photographic consultation with one of our Thailand plastic surgeon is the first step to learn how body contouring following major weight loss can help you achieve better health and an improved appearance.

What is Weight loss Surgery?

weight loss surgery

Obesity affects two of very three people. For those morbidly obese patients, dieting and exercise just doesn’t work. Their excessive weight adversely affects their quality of life and that of their families. They are in constant discomfort with aching joints and backs. They are high risk candidates to develop heart disease, diabetes or cancer. For them bariatric surgery which is a weight loss surgery is their only hope, and their last resort.

Bariatric surgery, a broad term that covers several types of gastric and intestinal surgeries. It works by either reducing the size of the stomach to limit calorie intake or by decreasing the amount of calories the body can absorb by surgically altering the small intestine. Examples of bariatric surgery include gastric bypass, gastric banding (lap-band, realize band), duodenal switch, gastric sleeve or roux-en-y procedures.

These Bariatric procedures can be life saving for may with long term studies showing that 23% up to 40% increase their mortality rate. Many other health issue either disappear or significantly improve with weightless.

Adjustable gastric band
The restriction of the stomach also can be created using a silicone band, which can be adjusted by addition or removal of saline through a port placed just under the skin. This operation can be performed laparoscopically, and is commonly referred to as a “lap band”. Weight loss is predominantly due to the restriction of nutrient intake that is created by the small gastric pouch and the narrow outlet.  It is considered one of the safest procedures performed today with a mortality rate of 0.05%.

Vertical banded gastroplasty

Vertical_banded

Diagram of a Vertical banded gastroplasty

Is also known as stomach stapling, is a restrictive operation for weight control. Both a band and staples are used to create a small stomach pouch. In the bottom of the pouch is an approximate one-centimeter hole through which the pouch contents can flow into the remainder of the stomach and thence onto the remainder of the gastrointestinal tract.

Many severely overweight people are able to lose a significant amount of weight and maintain their results with changes in diet and exercise. Others who have tried, but have had little success with various weight loss programs, find a solution with bariatric surgery.

Dramatic weight loss, however, can cause other types of aesthetic problems. Patients are often left with loose, sagging skin that no longer has the elasticity to conform to a slimmer shape. While the body shrinks, the skin does not usually shrink to fit the new slimmer shape.

Bariatric surgery, causes sudden and massive weight loss by changing the body’s physiology. It takes about a year for the body to adjust to its hampered ability to absorb calories and nutrition. It is recommended to wait one year after a bariatric procedure before undergoing plastic surgery. This give the body time to learn how to absorb vital nutrients necessary to heal, and time for the weight-loss to stabilize.

Unfortunately, neither exercise nor diet will help tighten loose skin. Only plastic surgery can do that.your surgeon will be able to assess your needs and specialises in all areas of reconstructive bariatric plastic surgery following extreme weight loss, endeavouring to help patients look and feel better in their skin. These procedures include tummy tuckbrachioplasty (arm lift)thigh liftface liftneck liftbreast lift, and breast augmentation.

Breast Implant Surface, Shapes and Profiles

breast implant surface, shape and profile

Until recently, most patients never discussed breast implant shapes or profiles with their plastic surgeons. If you chose a certain size breast implant, you would receive a predetermined amount of forward projection from that size implant. Now, you can choose a breast implant size and, if you like, have that size implant stick out more or less than the base diameter would usually dictate. Choosing breast implant shape may seem complicated since manufacturers have so many styles in their lineups. However, it’s really only a matter of making two choices. The first choice is the breast implant shape; the second choice is the implant profile. Shape refers to the actual shape of the implant, round or anatomical. Profile refers to the distance the implant projects off the chest wall. The third Choice is the the surface of the implant

Shapes


round and smooth implantsBecause women’s breasts take many sizes and shapes, and because goals for breast enhancement vary from patient to patient, there are different breast implant shapes available. For some women, the round breast implant provides the best results; for others, a better choice is an implant shaped like a teardrop. The appearance of breasts is highly affected by breast implant shapes.

 

Considerations include:

  • The patient’s body type
  • The amount of breast tissue the patient has.
  • Breast implant placement
  • Surgical incision choice

Round Breast Implants

Of the two breast implant shapes, the round breast implant is the most common type used for breast augmentation. A round breast implant is shaped like a flattened sphere. Certain types of round implants can enhance the forward projection of the breasts, which would otherwise require larger breast implants with wider bases. For women who desire fullness in the upper poles of their breasts, the round breast implant is a good choice.

Many women choose round implants because they tend to provide the greatest amount of lift, fullness, and cleavage. Some women, however, feel that the results produced with round implants appear artificial, so they seek out more natural-looking alternatives. A round breast implant can have a smooth or textured surface. Due to a round implant’s symmetrical shape, it does not pose the risk of implant rotation. The cost of a round breast implant is generally less than a teardrop(contoured) breast implant.

Tear Drop Breast Implants

As the name indicates, a teardrop breast implant, also known as a contoured breast implant, is shaped like a teardrop. Breasts attain a more gently sloping contour with teardrop breast implants. Although the upper poles of breasts that have teardrop implants are not as full as those of breasts that have round implants, teardrop-shaped implants often provide greater projection by volume. Of the two breast implant shapes, a teardrop breast implant is more expensive than a round breast implant, a consideration for those concerned with breast augmentation cost. A teardrop implant requires a textured surface to prevent rotation because, with teardrop implants, breasts can become distorted if the implant rotates. This is not a concern with round breast implants.

Surfaces


smooth and textured breast implantsAfter you have made the choice to have breast implant surgery, you must decide between two breast implant texture options: smooth and textured. On this page, we describe the differences between the two types to provide you with a better understanding so you can make an informed decision.

There is great debate amongst surgeons which is better. Some studies have shown fewer complications – specifically capsular contraction – with textured implants, but others have shown the opposite. The shells of both saline and silicone gel breast implants are made of silicone elastomer (rubber), and the surface area is either smooth or textured. The main purpose of textured implants is to promote tissue adherence to the irregular surface and hold them into place. Therefore, a textured surface is used with contoured implants because they have a top and bottom, and rotation or movement distorts the breast shape. On the other hand, most round implants have a smooth surface because the breast shape is not affected if the implant rotates in the breast pocket.

 

Smooth Breast Implants

Smooth implants are used in roughly 90 percent of breast augmentation surgeries today. A smooth breast implant is able to move freely in the breast pocket in which it is placed. Many women  eel that smooth implants have a more natural feel and appearance than textured implants. Smooth implants usually have thinner shells than textured implants, which makes them the softer choice of the two. Additional benefits of a smooth breast implant include implant longevity, lower patient cost, and reduced risk of rippling.

Textured Implant

It was originally thought that the textured surface of an implant could reduce the possibility of capsular contracture, a potential complication of breast implants. However, because evidence is not clear and there is no consensus as to whether a textured breast implant actually reduces the possibility of capsular contracture, many doctors prefer to use smooth, round implants. Smooth implants are often placed under muscle tissue in order to help avoid possible capsular contracture.

Textured breast implants have an irregular surface that is intended to hold the implant in place. The scar tissue that naturally forms around the implant conforms to the textured surface and “grabs” the implant to prevent it from being displaced or turning in the pocket, which could result in distortion of the breast shape. A textured surface is used with contoured implants to prevent movement because the teardrop shape is distorted if any rotation occurs. Textured implants were designed to lessen the risk of capsular contracture, which is an excessive contraction of the scar capsule that surrounds the implant, by preventing scar tissue from forming around the implant in a uniform manner. However, studies have proven inconclusive and no firm evidence exists to support the theory that textured implants reduce the risk of capsular contracture.

If a patient requires implant removal due to capsular contracture or another complication, it may be more difficult for the surgeon to remove the implant because of the adherence of tissue to the textured surface. The shells of textured breast implants are slightly thicker than smooth implants.Textured implants are more firm and carry an increased risk of rippling that is visible or can be felt through the skin, especially for women with smaller breasts. There is also a small increase in the chance that the implant shell will rupture.

Profiles


When breast augmentation patients meet with their Thailand surgeons to discuss the many implant options that are available to them, they not only need to decide on a specific sized implant, but determine the amount of forward projection that is appropriate for the patient as well. In the past, implants came with a standard projection, or profile, based on the size of the implant that women choose. Today, surgeons and patients can work together to select an implant that is not only the right size, but also provides the desired projection and cleavage.The most important criterion for profile selection is the base diameter of the breast.

This is easily measured by the surgeon with a calipers or measuring tape. The implant diameter must be less than the breast base, or it will be “squeezed” circumstantially. This will force it to scallop, or ripple around the outer edge, creating a range of other problems. Among these is visible rippling; It has been observed of much less rippling since the high profile implants became available, because the base diameter can be matched more precisely.

Low Profile Breast Implant

low profile implantThe low profile implant shell is wider (larger diameter) and flatter (less height or depth) than moderate profile breast implants. This implant style is commonly used for women who have a wide broad chest frame. The extra width of the implant shell will fill the chest anatomy correctly, achieving a natural look and realistic cleavage. The implant will not project as far off the body as other implant styles, making it the right choice for women who want fullness, but not an overly round and obviously enhanced look. The main criteria used to select low profile implants are the base diameter of the breast and dimensions of the chest. The implant should be smaller than the base diameter of the natural breast mound, which is often substantial in wider framed women.

Moderate Profile Breast Implant

The low profile implant shell is wider (larger diameter) and flatter (less height or depth) than moderate profile breast implants. This implant style is commonly used for women who have a wide broad chest frame. The extra width of the implant shell will fill the chest anatomy correctly, achieving a natural look and realistic cleavage. The implant will not project as far off the body as other implant styles, making it the right choice for women who want fullness, but not an overly round and obviously enhanced look.

The main criteria used to select low profile implants are the base diameter of the breast and dimensions of the chest. The implant should be smaller than the base diameter of the natural breast mound, which is often substantial in wider framed women.

Moderate Plus Profile Breast Implant

moderate plus breast implant

Moderate plus implants are a half step compromise between traditional moderate profile implants and popular new high profile implants. The moderate plus profile is perfect for women who want a bit more projection than is typically provided by a moderate profile, but not as much projection as is found with the high profile shell.

Moderate plus describes the distance the implant will project off the chest wall, once they are surgically placed inside the breast.

High Profile Breast Implant

High profile breast implants are a great innovation in breast implant design. First available in the early 1990’s, high profile implants have filled the specific needs of many patients perfectly, helping them to achieve a pleasing breast esthetics and an extremely natural shape and contour. High profile implants have also become a favorite of many cosmetic surgeons and are recommended to many patients due to their excellent surgical results.

High profile implants project the further off the chest wall, when compared to other common implant profiles. The high profile implant will achieve this projection by having a smaller base diameter than an identically sized (in cc’s) moderate or low profile implant shell. By decreasing the diameter of the shell, but keeping the same fill volume, the manufacturer is able to increase the depth or forward projection.

high profile breast implant

High profile implants are perfect for women with a narrower chest frame who still want a considerable size increase during their breast augmentation surgery. Instead of using a wider base diameter moderate implant, the doctor will choose a narrower high profile shell which will suit the patient’s anatomy and project out to accommodate the volume of the filler material. High profile implants are also commonly indicated for patients who are undergoing a combination breast enlargement and donut mastopexy procedure. This modified mastopexy, like many breast lift operations sometimes squares off the breast shape slightly, making it appear wider and less round. The shape of the high profile implant shell restores the rounded shape of the breast, while still allowing the considerable benefits of the mastopexy lift.

While some studies say that these high profile shells reduce visible wrinkling and rippling, the reasoning given is generally incorrect. It is not anything to do with the design of the implant which decreases this noticeable unwanted breast enlargement complication. it is simply a better anatomical fit. Wrinkling and rippling often occurs when a women with a narrow chest frame desires large implants. The base diameter of her natural breasts is smaller than the base diameter of her implants. Obviously, the implant will be compressed and distorted by the small confines of the pocket inside her breast. This distortion causes the wrinkling and rippling which can be so unappealing to many affected patients. By utilizing a proper fitting high profile implant with a base diameter smaller than the natural breast width, the surgeon can guarantee a good fit with no implant shell distortion. The patient’s size request is accommodated by the increase in forward projection creating a flawless augmented, butvery natural looking breast.

Ultra High Profile

Ultra high breast implantUltra High Profile implants available are through Mentor, this implant provides the narrowest base and highest projection. They are only available in Round shape and up to 495cc. Ultra High profile implants are perfect for women with a narrower chest frame who still want a considerable size increase during their breast augmentation surgery. Instead of using a wider base diameter implant, the doctor may choose the ultra high profile if the high profile is not enough projection. This may suit the patient’s anatomy and project out to be able accommodate the volume of the filler material.

There are two ways to increase projection in an implant. The first way is to add more volume to the implant. The other way to add projection is to make the base (diameter) of the implant smaller. Thus for any given volume, a smaller base has more projection. This is what ‘high profile’ implants do—they have a smaller diameter with a higher projection.

 

10 Thing to do after having Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty Surgery

You  have just had your Rhinoplasty Surgery in Thailand and returned home, and now it is the recovery time. You should ensure that you follow all your surgeon instructions for your Nose Surgery recovery. Below 10 things you should do following surgery.


 

1. Apply ice packs to your cheeks for the first 48 hours and try to keep your head elevated. At least higher than your heart. This will help in minimizing the swelling.

2. Don’t take a bath for at least 5 days after the surgery. If you really need to take a shower, keep your nose area dry. Washing after the surgery could lead to infection so be careful!

3. Don’t wear eyeglasses/sunglasses until your nose fully heals.

4. Avoid anything that can irritate your nose. (smoke, dust and etc.)

5. Drink vitamins. You cannot get sick because blowing your nose is not an option.

6. Don’t wear shirts with small neckholes that could be difficult for your head to fit into. If possible only wear button down tops or wide-necked shirts.

7. Avoid activities that can cause displacement of your new nose such as rough physical activities, harsh facial movements or chewing too much.

8. Drink lots of water, as it helps in the healing process.

9. For the first few weeks, avoid vitamins and food that are rich in Vitamin E, Ginseng and Gingko. They can cause you to bleed more freely.

10. Wear a hat and put on some sunscreen. Keep your nose protected from the sun even after it heals.

 

If you feel something’s wrong, consult with the doctor immediately!

Remember to do research before undergoing Rhinoplasty. It is important to have knowledge of what you are about to go through. Follow your surgeons aftercare instructions carefully, remember our tips and of course, enjoy your brand new nose!

Breast Implants and Mammograms for cancer detection

mammogram with breast implants

You have now had your Breast Augmentation surgery in Phuket, you  have returned home from Thailand and now all the questions start !!

Many of the questions asked by friends and family on your return you will find trivial but there is one that you should know the answer to as Breast Cancer for Women is a very serious and real subject.

Can breast implants make it harder to find breast cancer during mammography?

Yes. Breast implants can obscure mammogram images, decreasing the ability of mammograms to reveal breast cancer. Still, studies show that mammograms are an effective way to screen for breast cancer in women with breast implants.

Women with breast implants should continue to have mammograms. (A woman who had an implant following a mastectomy should ask her doctor whether a mammogram of the reconstructed breast is necessary.) It is important to let the mammography facility know about breast implants when scheduling a mammogram. The technician and radiologist must be experienced in performing mammography on women who have breast implants. Implants can hide some breast tissue, making it more difficult for the radiologist to detect an abnormality on the mammogram. If the technician performing the procedure is aware that a woman has breast implants, steps can be taken to make sure that as much breast tissue as possible can be seen on the mammogram. A special technique called implant displacement views may be used.

If you have breast implants, you can take steps to make your mammogram more successful, such as:

Find a facility that sees many women with breast implants. Ask your doctor for a referral to a clinic where radiologists have experience performing and reading mammograms of women with breast implants. Ask about the clinic staff’s experience when you make your appointment. You’ll want to know that the clinic obtains special mammogram views in addition to the standard mammogram images to better evaluate the breast tissue.
Speak up about your breast implants at your appointment.When you make your appointment and again when you arrive at your appointment, tell the staff that you have breast implants.

There’s a slight risk that your breast implants may rupture during a mammogram. But the benefits of mammography in the early detection of breast cancer outweigh this risk.

Will the pressure of a mammogram cause an implant to rupture?
This occurrence is obviously quite rare. So, implants should not be a disincentive to getting a mammogram. Some patients ask if ultrasound, which is a gentler procedure, can be used to screen for cancer in lieu of mammogram. The surgical answer is no. Ultrasound doesn’t pick up the minute calcifications of early breast cancer. And it is very operator dependent; results vary tremendously based on who is performing and viewing the image. Ultrasound is an adjunct test used to distinguish between solid and cystic masses or to help assess very dense breasts. The current practice is not to use it as a primary screening tool to detect breast cancer in women without or with breast implants.

Does having Breast Implant increase higher incidences of breast cancer?
No. Many studies have found that breast cancer incidence in women who have had implants is actually lower than that of the general female public. One study from Sweden followed 3,400 women who had received cosmetic breast implants between the years 1965 and 1993. They had an average follow-up of 18 years. The women with implants were found to have a 30 percent reduced risk for breast cancer when compared to women without implants. Another study, this time in the U.S., compared breast cancer incidence rates among 13,000 women who had breast implants with expected rates based on U.S. surveillance. And here too the risk was slightly lower. It’s possible, though many feel not medically probable (or even statistically proven) that breast implants may decrease breast cancer incidence by:

Compressing breast tissue and interfering with its blood supply.
Decreasing temperature in the breast.
Stimulating an immunological response, which helps destroy potential breast cancer cells.

It may be, however, that the apparent decreased incidence of breast cancer in women with breast implants reflects the fact that these women are more likely to be thin (obesity is a significant risk factor for breast cancer). Also, the women with implants tend to be in a higher socioeconomic group with better nutrition, exercise, and cancer screening. They see their physicians, especially the breast specialist more frequently, have more frequent mammograms and better access to medical care than their cohorts who don’t have implants.

When cancer is found in women with implants, is the disease at a later stage?
This has been addressed in another study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), which used the data collected from the National Cancer Institute funded Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC). They compared 141 women with augmentation and nearly 21,000 without who were diagnosed with breast cancer between 1995 and 2002. The tumors were diagnosed at a similar stage and size, but tended to be lower grade (less worrisome) for women with breast augmentation compared to those without. The authors concluded that “although sensitivity of screening mammography is lower with breast augmentation, there’s no evidence that this results in more advanced disease at diagnosis compared with women without augmentation.”

Who is the best surgeon breast augmentation Thailand

Best Surgeon Breast Augmentation Thailand

We already know that Thailand offers some of the world’s best value for money for Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand and Plastic Surgery in Thailand. Major procedures can be 50-70% cheaper there than in Australia, and the country had as many as 1.2 million medical tourists last year, making it the top destination.

The #1 Plastic Surgery performed in Thailand is Breast Implant. You ask Why?  Why wouldn’t they as the cost is only $4100 AUD a better option than the 10K plus Australian surgeons expects Australian to pay for Breast Augmentation?

The skills alone of Thai surgeons and health care professionals, the technology and hygienic and safety practices of the International Hospitals are world class. Majority of the surgeons have obtained training and experience in the United States, and some are internationally renowned in their respective specialisations. All have extensive experience in breast augmentation (breast implants), Liposuction, Tummy Tucks and Facelift (Minimal scarring), and each specialises in their preferred areas of Plastic Surgery.

4 Reason to Have Breast Implants

Reason to Have Breast Surgery

Now just to be clear from the onset, having small boobs isn’t really all that bad, thats why I told myself before I had Breast Implants in Thailand 9 Years ago anyway. I would tell myself that Fitted tees fit better, you won’t have to carry excess baggage, and people will actually look you in the eyes when you speak. It just so happens that there will always be moments when you want… more.

Hand Ups

Hands up if you ever wanter bigger boobs

All to often you’ll encounter any of these below top 5 problems that are so frustrating, it could tempt any flat-chested girl to get breast augmentation surgery. Now we are being honest, Hands up if you can relate to any of these five issues commonly faced by grown women with small chests.

  1. People Think you are Younger – Come to think of it that cannot be a bad option!The fact remains, however, that it can be a bit of a hassle to constantly asked for ID when you enter a bar, order alcohol, or even go into movies not meant for kids. Then to top to off if you have younger cousins or sisters, maybe even nieces, who are ‘bigger boobed’ than you, it raises that awkward question of… Who’s the big girl here?”

  2. The Bra has nothing to fill it – What is the point of wearing a bra when you barely have anything on your chest that needs supporting
  3. Some Clothes May you look like a boy -This is a lot worse than calling a friends newborn Baby Girl dressed in a pale Green jumpsuit a Baby Boy. Even worse  upon seeing a photo of you on Facebook  when your hair is/was particularly short. Wearing clothes that are only slightly unfeminine, like a comfy t-shirt and jeans, will make you look more of a prepubescent boy than a woman who simply likes to wear comfortable clothes.
  4. You have to have a flatter Tummy Than you Chest – Because if you don’t you’ll look like a lizard otherwise. Having no boobs at all is one thing, but if your stomach juts out farther than your chest, well – nothing is really more unattractive than that. Need we say more?

If those listed above and other flat-chested problems become too much to bear and you come to a point where you fear having to go without a push-up bra, don’t bother wearing a bra or just scared your chickenfillets may pop out in the middle of a hockey game then  breast augmentation may be the answer to end your woes. Have Breast Implant in Phuket will cost you $3900 AUD add in a 4 star hotel for 9 nights and flights and for less than $5500 you have a 9 day holiday and Breast Implants. What more could a girl ask for!

Fat Transferred from My Butt to My Breast

Fat Transfer

How many times have we amongst our friends said how about I take some of your big breast and add to my little breast and make everyone happy! Even better would be having fat taken from our expanding hips and added to our abnormally small breast area. Could all of this finally really be a possibility?

The new buzz word in the Media at the moment is “Fat Transfers” Fat Transfers is not exactly a new option just a new exploited version of the same thing that has always been available. In Short Fat Transfer, also known as Fat Grafting or Fat Injections is a natural, minimally invasive surgery for those seeking breast or buttock augmentation or replacing age-related lost volume and subtly smoothing out wrinkles. Fat is removed, using VASER Liposuction, from various parts of the body where there is a substantial amount, such as the thighs, abdomen and buttocks. The fat is then centrifuged, or purified, to separate the healthy fat cells from the damaged ones, and injected into another area of the body that is lacking in volume.If you’re looking for a natural alternative to implants and fillers, the Fat Transfer procedures could be an option for you!

Before you start planning your newer version of yourself you need to ensure that you are looking at all the information not just the information you want to see. Like all good things there is a down side to Fat Transfers as much as an upside

The most import thing that you need to realise upfront is Fat Transfers are not a permanent solution. Up to 65% of the transferred fat may be absorbed by your body over the first few months. The remaining 35% will usually stay in place for years. You may require a “top-up” within the following months.The survival of the fat and longevity of the results depend on the surgeon’s skills, how the fat was harvested and purified, and how and where it was injected. To be performed successfully, fat grafting requires a surgeon with highly developed skills based on experience and knowledge of the technique. A process called micro fat grafting, although labor intensive, is the best way to ensure that the highest percentage of grafted fat will take. When done successfully, the injected fat establishes a new blood supply from your body and receives the nourishment it needs for survival.However, there may be a percentage of fat that does not take, which is why touchup procedures are sometimes necessary.

Fat Transfer for Breast Enhancement
Fat Transfer procedures are being offered as a viable and more ‘natural’ alternative by some surgeons world wide to having the alternative of breast implants. It defiantly is a possibility under specific circumstances like, If you desire a modest increase in breast size, you are a good candidate for fat grafting to the breast, but your should be aware that your breasts should already have a nice shape and good skin tone. If you have poor skin, sagging breasts, or want a significant increase in breast size (more than one cup size), breast augmentation with fat transfer is not for you. The problem with only using fat for breast enhancement lies in getting large volumes of fat to predictably “take.” with the possibility of only 35% of the fat transferred being useable is it really worth the cost?


Pros

  • Autologous fat (from your own body), as opposed to dermal fillers, replaces “like with like,” reducing the chance of allergic reactions to foreign substances.
  • Fat transfer results are natural, long lasting and safe.
  • Fat transfer is a noninvasive method for achieving facial rejuvenation.

Cons

  • It is time consuming to prepare fat tissue before transferring it, compared to dermal fillers, which are prepackaged.
  • Though longer lasting than dermal fillers, fat transfer costs more.
  • For augmentation, you may require multiple sessions to achieve your desired breast or buttock size

Vaser Liposuction Facts

Vaser Liposuction

VASER LIPOSUCTION

Unlike traditional liposuction,Rather than standard liposuction in Thailand, which simply sucks the fat out from under the skin, Vaser Liposuction in Thailand adds a very important step – liquefaction of the fat. Essentially, the fat is “dissolved” or “melted” before it is removed, which has a range of benefits, including better contouring, better preservation of existing tissues, and faster recovery. Vaser Liposuction results in less trauma and a much faster recovery time for patients. Vaser Liposuction will use a minimally invasive technique to selectively break apart and gently remove unwanted fat.

Prior to beginning the Vaser Liposuction Procedure, the areas to have the liposuction is injected with a special solution known as tumescent solution. Tumescent solution will hydrodissects the fat facilitating its removal; it protects the underlying organs bringing up the skin; it reduces bleeding numbs the target area and also shrinks local blood vessels. It will temporarily expands the volume of the targeted area, making fat cells easier to break up and remove. Small-diameter probes called a cannula are then inserted into the body through small incisions, and by resonating at a high ultrasonic frequency, the probes literally shake loose fat cells — while leaving blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues unharmed. The loose fat cells then mix with the tumescent fluid, which is removed from the body using gentle suction.

WHO SHOULD HAVE VASER LIPOSUCTION

Vaser Liposuction is ideal for those wanting to correct disproportionate fat deposits that are genetically acquired and cannot be corrected with diet and exercise alone.

Aside from Vaser Liposuction’s faster and easier recoveries, collagen production and skin retraction are also stimulated by the heat of the ultrasound. This means that Vaser patients can expect better skin retraction and smoother results.

Because Vaser is also more precise, fat closer to the skin can be safely removed. Standard liposuction cannot do this due to the risk of injuring the skin.

Vaser Liposuction is generally performed under local anaesthetic only or local anaesthetic + light sedation. General anaesthetic is not required unless large amount are being removed

Vaser Liposuction is clinically proven to enhance skin tightening in treated areas.
The most common areas to be treated with Vaser Liposuction are the abdomen (upper and lower), flanks (including muffin tops) and thighs (inner and outer).

You have a FREE Photographic consultation prior to travelling to Thailand for Vaser Liposuction and then a face to face consult with one of our Thailand  Surgeons is required to ascertain your fitness and suitability for the procedure, to order and review pre-operative tests (e.g blood tests),  to take pre-operative measurements and photos, and most importantly, for you to discuss your needs and concerns.

The benefits of liposculpture are immediate, and as healing gradually shrinks the fat layer and the skin, the result may continue to improve over several months. Once removed, these fat cells cannot return.

Whilst the results of any operation cannot be guaranteed, and a realistic aim is significant improvement and not perfection, patient satisfaction rates with modern Laser Liposuction are very high.

Compared to Australia cost of Vaser Liposuction it makes it affordable to have in Thailand and have more areas done too!
