Before having a breast augmentation (เสริมหน้าอก, which is the term in Thai), it’s vital to discuss your choice of size, appearance and feel of your breasts with your surgeon.

Before you decide on the surgery, here’s what you need to have in mind:

Breast Implants Don’t Prevent Breasts from Sagging

A Breast implants alone do not prevent breasts from sagging. A breast lift along with breast augmentation may be required to correct sagging breasts.

Breast Implants Don’t Have a Lifetime Result

An implant serves for only about a decade. Implant rupture can occur, and your breasts don’t stop ageing, and factors like weight loss or weight gain might change your breasts appearance.

Mammograms Might be More Complicated

Specialized views may be required to having breast implants and routine mammograms,

Breast Implants may Hinder Breastfeeding

 While some women can still breastfeed successfully after an implant, others may find breastfeeding a challenge.

 Implants are not Covered by Insurance

 Insurance doesn’t cover breast augmentation except they are for a medical purpose (Mastectomy for example).

Further Surgery may be Required after Breast Implant Removal

 A breast lift or other corrective surgery may be required to help restore your breasts’ look after your implant is removed.

You Might Need an MRI Scan

 The FDA recommends regular monitoring with MRI. However, studies now show that there are small data to suggest regular monitoring except you experience symptoms.

A baseline mammogram before your surgery may be required. Your doctor might also adjust your medications before the surgery. For instance, aspirin or other medicines that can increase bleeding is best avoided.

Your surgeon will also ask you to halt smoking before the surgery.

It’s advisable to be driven home by someone after the surgery, also have someone stay with you for the first night at least.
