Tummy Tuck Before After Pregnancy

Tummy Tuck Before After Pregnancy


The decision to have a  Tummy Tuck before  after pregnancy is one that should not be taken lightly. A baby in a family is a true blessing, it brings the joy and excitement, however, it brings in a couple of issues for the woman who carries the baby for 9 months and then delivers it. One of these issues is the addition of extra weight, which is more prominent after pregnancy. As per reports published in a Medical Journal of Gynaecology in the US, 60 percent of the women after their successful pregnancies are seen opting for the surgical options like a tummy tuck. Similarly, the same report also suggests that half of the women also opt for the same surgery before going for the pregnancy. Though in both the cases the result for Tummy Tuck Before after Pregnancy proves out to be effective both after and before surgery but the former is a more popular than the latter. Well, let’s check how effective the Tummy Tuck Before After Pregnancy for women.

Though this is not a common phenomenon to have Tummy Tuck before getting pregnant, however, due to unplanned pregnancies, it can be seen some place or the other among women. But the fact is, getting pregnant even before unlike after the pregnancy has no risk at all to women or the child, which she will be bearing during her days of expectation.  One of the best ways to retain the result of your tummy tuck procedure for your ongoing or future pregnancy is to simply avoid any the extremely large weight gains during the pregnancy. Though this may not be often simple to avoid, however, it can be a worthy pursuit since you can even experience the additional amount of health benefits like decreased risk of diabetes.  The pregnancy would simply stretch the abdominal wall muscles and the overlying skin and potentially reverse are some of the improvements. Hence, it is often recommended in a majority of cases to wait for your pregnancies and then go for the tummy tuck surgery.

You can even feel the baby bump doesn’t stick as per your expectation but don’t worry, your child will have enough room to grow and nourish.

After pregnancies, the woman’s body changes a lot. No wonder why there are many pregnant women who choose for this procedure after they deliver their babies. The rapid enlargement of the abdomen during the phase of pregnancies make your skin stretched over your the areas like tummy, thighs and hips. Hence, it produces the kind of stretch marks over the named organs. This process is also seen stretching the abdominal muscles and then it weakens the abdominal wall. This is the reason why women are not seen getting their original figure despite trying options like exercises or diet food. Hence, procedures like Tummy Tuck are the only best option to go with.

The fact of the matter is procedures like Tummy Tuck after pregnancies are ideal for women to get back their shape.

Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery Phuket

Breast Implant Revision

Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery

With hundreds of thousands of women receiving Breast Implants every year in Australia it is no wonder that Breast Augmentation Revision has become its own area of specialty.

Breast Augmentation remains on top of the list as one of the most popular Cosmetic Plastic Surgery procedures year after year.

Patients are typically very satisfied with their breast augmentation procedure, but compromised results occasionally occur. Fortunately, most of these can be significantly improved with Breast Augmentation Revision surgery.

No. 1 reason that women opt for revision breast surgery is that they wish they went bigger

Breast augmentation revision is a surgical procedure performed to remove or replace implants from a prior breast augmentation. Women elect breast augmentation revision for various reasons including a change in personal preference or medical purposes.

Breast augmentation revision is often more complex than the initial breast augmentation. It’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon like ours at Phuket International Hospital, who have had years of training and experience performing breast augmentation revision surgery.

Revision or secondary breast augmentation can range from being a simple procedure to being a very complex one. There is a multitude of factors involved, and some of these we explore in the text below.

Your breast implants may need to be removed or replaced if you are experiencing any of the following problems:

  • Capsular contracture (scar tissue tightens and hardens around one or both implants)
  • Implant rupture or leakage (caused by breast trauma, implant age or implant malfunction)
  • Double Bubble Breast Implants
  • Implant visible, palpable or rippling
  • Poor implant placement or bottoming out
  • Poor outcome of your initial breast augmentation
  • Regret about the size of your breast implants
  • Regret about your decision to get breast implants

When any of the problems listed above occur with breast implants, some choose to take action while others do not. Most issues typically do not pose an imminent danger or health risk, and the cost of breast augmentation revision surgery may not be a worthwhile investment if the problem is minimal.

What’s involved in Breast Augmentation Revision?

Depending on the individual patient, revision surgery in Thailand may involve one or a combination of the following procedures:

A. Removal of the old implants and replacement with “like-for-like” or different size, type or shape implant.

B. Removal of thickened contracted scar tissue lining the implant pocket (capsulectomy).

C. Modification of the existing implant pocket to allow for the insertion of a much larger implant and/ or reducing the gap between the implants (capsulotomy).

D. Modification of the existing implant pocket to correct bottoming out, descent of the breast crease and lack of support.

E. Breast implant pocket switch from above to below the muscle to address rippling and recurrent capsular contracture.

F. Breast uplift/ reshaping (mastopexy) to correct droopiness.

What is cost of Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery?

The cost of having Breast Implant Revision surgery in Thailand may vary., depending on the type of revision required.

Some implants may be under a life-time warranty. If you still have the records of your old implants, it may be worth contacting the implant company and ask about any possible reimbursement in regards to removal and replacement of the implants concerned

Our advice to get a clear picture of what is going to work to achieve your results is to submit your images and patient information so our Thailand Surgeons can provide you with recommendations. These recommendations will include what surgery will achieve your results, confirmation of price and duration you require for recovery in Phuket. The more information you can provide on the original surgery and any investigative step you have taken, the easier it will be for the surgeon to determine the best course of treatment.
