Are you seeking to enhance your body’s natural contour? Consider the transformative possibilities of aesthetic procedures for the body such as breast augmentation and liposuction.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the size, shape, or fullness of a person’s breasts. This is typically achieved by placing breast implants or performing fat transfer breast augmentation.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation and Breast Implants

Why Is Breast Augmentation Done?

Breast augmentation may be pursued for various reasons:

  • To enhance body proportions and achieve a balanced figure.
  • To restore the lost volume of the breasts. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging can lead to a loss of breast volume. 
  • To boost one’s self-esteem or body confidence.
  • To address asymmetry of the breasts.

What Are The Types Of Breast Augmentation?

There are two main types of breast augmentation: breast implants and fat transfer breast augmentation.

Breast Implants

Breast implants are the most common type of breast augmentation. They are filled with either silicone gel or saline solution and are surgically placed behind the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle. The choice of implants should be determined through consultations with your experienced plastic surgeon.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Instead of using implants, fat transfer breast augmentation involves harvesting excess fat from one area of the body (such as the abdomen or thighs), purifying it, and then injecting it into the breasts. It provides a more subtle increase in size and a natural feel.

Risks Of Breast Augmentation

Some of the possible risks of breast augmentation procedure are:

  • Infections.
  • Scar tissue forming around the implant.
  • Rupture or leakage of the implant.
  • Changes in sensation.
  • Persistent pain or discomfort in the breasts.
  • Hematoma (blood pooling) or seroma (fluid accumulation) around the implant.
  • Visible scarring.
  • The US FDA reports a risk of rare breast implant-associated cancers – anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) and squamous cell carcinoma (BIA-SCC)

It is important to note that a thorough consultation is essential for discussing these risks, understanding the procedure’s potential outcomes, and making an informed decision about breast augmentation.

Cost Of Breast Augmentation

The cost of breast augmentation may vary depending on the type of breast augmentation procedure and the location. It may range from S$3,000 and above in Thailand, S$3,300 and above in Malaysia and S$11,000 in Singapore.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction, often referred to as “lipo”, is a surgical procedure designed to remove localized fat deposits from various areas of the body. It is not a weight-loss solution but rather a body contouring technique aimed at improving the body’s overall shape and proportion.

Why Is Liposuction Done?

Liposuction may be pursued for various reasons:

  • To enhance body contours and remove fats that are resistant to diet and exercise.
  • To boost one’s self esteem or body confidence.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Liposuction?

Liposuction is suitable for individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight but have localized areas of excess fat that they wish to eliminate. Candidates should also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results.

Before undergoing liposuction, it’s essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During the consultation, the surgeon will evaluate  medical history, assess the candidacy of the patient for the procedure, and discuss goals and expectations.

Liposuction Techniques

1. Traditional Liposuction

This is the standard liposuction technique, which involves the insertion of a cannula (a thin tube) through small incisions to suction out fat cells. It is effective for various body areas, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, and arms.

2. Tumescent Liposuction

It involves injecting a tumescent solution into the target area before fat removal. This solution contains a local anesthetic and epinephrine to reduce bleeding and post-operative discomfort.

3. Ultrasonic and Laser-Assisted Liposuction

These advanced techniques use ultrasound or laser energy to liquefy fat cells, making them easier to remove. They are often employed for more delicate areas like the neck and chin.

How Is Liposuction Done?

In a traditional liposuction, the surgeon will make small incisions in targeted areas. Through these openings, a thin tube will be inserted to remove excess fat deposits. The tube’s precise movements break down and suction out unwanted fat, revealing a smoother and more contoured silhouette. This procedure selectively shapes areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips, yielding a balanced and refined appearance. The incisions are carefully closed, allowing the body to reveal its newly contoured form.

Risks Of Liposuction

Like any surgical procedure, liposuction carries risks, including:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Uneven results.

It is essential to discuss these risks with your surgeon during the consultation.

Cost Of Liposuction In Thailand

The cost of liposuction in Thailand may vary depending on the type of liposuction procedure. It may range from S$190 and above. For a more comprehensive cost comparison of aesthetic procedures in Bangkok, Thailand, read this Health365 Aesthetic article.
