I've been coming here for treatment for some time now and at first, I wasn't sure but as time passed I realized the staff was very in tune with the patients and very friendly. I have a fear of needles, but they are brilliant. Hardly feel anything. They offer various treatments so you'd have to check what suits your needs but I can recommend it and will continue here for the foreseeable future

(1) REASONABLY PRICED. The lower prices had originally deterred me from making an appointment here. US $5,900: Eyelid surgery, Nose augmentation, Alar Reduction, and Jaw reduction surgery. Bumrungrad asked me to pay 500,000 Baht (US $14,200) just for Jaw & Brow Ridge Reduction. Destination Beauty wanted US $8074 (Eyelids 44,000 Baht, Jaw Reduction 120,000 Baht, Nose 120,000 Baht). I originally chose Destination Beauty (DB) but they flaked on me twice while I had arrived in Bangkok(!) so I immediately called Dr Pichet @ Bangkok Plastic Surgery Clinic. (2) APPEARANCES. Bangkok Plastic Surgery Clinic suffers from a weak website and its unappealing brick & mortar building. Both do dissuade people from venturing deeper. But go in. Friendly staff (Manager Takky & her team) and the doctor himself Pichet. He calmed my fears as I had just come from my disappointing non-meeting (the doctor was a no-show) with DB. (3) SURGERY. The next day they picked me up at the hotel. The operating room had at least SEVEN assistants in green. After the surgery I spent the night at the clinic and had 2 nurses accompany me over night. The next day I was given a driver to take me back to the hotel. No pain. I did not have to take either of 2 types of pain medication. If Dr Pichet was struggling as a business I would highly recommend he get a new website and a new location. But he does work alone in all 5 glorious stories of his own clinic and I can see how he can get comfortable there. After all it's HIS place. The best that I can suggest to anyone that is having plastic surgery is MEET with the doctor. Destination Beauty does NOT allow you to meet or even TALK to the doctor over the phone before your arrival (and I came all the way from San Francisco). That's a red flag. Meet with your doctors. See what they're like. See if you two mesh. I think that you'd find confidence in Dr Pichet.

What you need to know about Breast Reconstruction in Thailand

Breast Reconstruction Options

Breast reconstruction is to reform or reshape the breast(s) after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. A mastectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the entire breast, usually including the nipple and areola, in order to treat or prevent breast cancer. A lumpectomy is the removal of a piece of the breast where there is a smaller tumor. This reconstruction process can help a woman find her self-confidence again and feel better during her cancer recovery.

While many factors determine what kind of breast reconstruction surgery would best suit an individual, there are two main types of breast reconstruction surgery:

  1. Flap Reconstruction - Autologous / Skin Flap Surgery
  2. Tissue Expander - Implants / Prosthetics

What does the Procedure Involve?

The procedure for both these methods differs from each other. Both begin with anesthetizing the patient so that she may not suffer from pain and discomfort during the surgery. After this, the procedures go as follows:

  • Flap reconstruction: in this technique, a tissue flap is taken from a donor site of your body, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks or back. The flap is grafted at the place of your breasts. Its blood supply can either be taken from the donor site or it can be cut off from there and a new supply is established. In both cases, the nutrition of the flap is not disturbed. Stitches are applied, drainage tubes are inserted to drain excess fluid or blood from the site and bandages are applied over it.
  • A tissue expander (breast implant): this is the most common technique used worldwide. A synthetic implant is inserted under the pectoralis major muscle. Silicone implants are most commonly used. Animal dermal grafts are used to cover the site to give it a more aesthetic appearance. Within a few months, saline solution is injected to expand the tissue until it reaches the appropriate size.

Following these surgeries, other procedures can be carried out to reconstruct a nipple. Nipple prosthesis is used to restore the normal physical appearance of your breasts.

How Long Should I Stay in Thailand?

The actual procedure and time needed in the operation theatre differ for the two types of breast reconstructive surgeries mentioned above, with the breast implant procedure taking less time as compared to flap reconstruction. One or two days of stay is needed in the hospital after tissue expander surgery. While flap reconstruction is more like two or three days stay at the hospital. Follow-ups are needed for both of these. You should stay in Thailand for at least 14 days after the surgery. During this period, your health condition is monitored, stitches and drainage tubes are removed and you can go home when allowed by your physician.

What's the Recovery Time?

Your period of recovery depends upon the type of reconstructive surgery you have. A couple of weeks are needed by most of the women to recover. There is swelling and soreness around the site in the first week. This continues to reduce and ultimately, after 8 weeks you should start to see signs of a full recovery. Medicines are given to relieve pain and discomfort. You will need to take 2-3 weeks off work. On average, 3-4 weeks are needed to recover from tissue expander surgery and 4-6 weeks for flap reconstructive surgery. Wear surgical bras to support your reconstructed breasts while you are recovering. Regular activities can be restarted after 2 months. Almost 1-2 years are required to get the proper shape and for the scars to fade away.

What About Aftercare?

The following points should be considered post-operation:

  • Follow the instructions given by your doctor and take your medicines as and when prescribed.
  • Consult a nutritionist for a diet plan. A healthy diet helps you recover faster.
  • Do not wear a padded or underwire bra until allowed by your doctor.
  • Use surgical bras in the early few days after the surgery.
  • Avoid excessive unnecessary movement of your breasts.
  • Do not lift heavy objects and children - it could stretch on your stitches.
  • Change your bandage whenever it gets dirty. Germs can cause infection.
  • Do not take a bath when the bandages are still intact. A wet bandage can also be the cause of infection.
  • Abstain from sexual activity for at least 6 weeks.
  • Take rest - give yourself time to recover.

What's the Success Rate?

Breast reconstruction surgery has a high success rate, with complications usually only occurring in case of infection or a blood clot formation. According to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the success rate is found to be 98% in the case of flap reconstruction surgery. While for tissue expander surgery has a success rate within the region of 94-96%. Owing to its tremendous success rate, the percentage of women going through the surgery is increasing day by day.

Are there Alternatives to Breast Reconstruction?

Surgery should never be the first option. Other options should always be considered before opting for it. Following are some alternatives to breast reconstruction surgery:

  • Breast prosthetics: prosthetic breasts can be worn inside your bras or they can be attached to your body. They give the appearance of natural breasts.
  • Padded bras: these are not as uncomfortable as prosthetic breasts. They give you a perfect body posture without going through the surgery.
  • Go flat: you can embrace your freedom. Accept yourself as you are. No need to wear padded bras or prosthetic breasts. No need to go through surgery.
