My father had hernia repair here and the whole procedure went very smooth. The surgeon and all the staff was very friendly and offered the best service. My father was very well looked after. Really appreciate all the work they did...
Incredible attention from both the doctor and the staff. All are professional, friendly, welcoming, and warm. Great environment as well. 11/10 would recommend. 👍👍
My experience with Bangkok Hospital Samui has been amazing. I spent several days here, and the nurses were so kind, thoughtful, and skilled at what they do. My procedure went so smoothly and I'm happy with the results. The surgeon was very good at easing my concerns. He distracted me from my worries and very professional at his job. I am very thankful for all the staff there.
Came here for my male-to-female assignment surgery. Am very happy with the results and the experience. The hospital liaison (Nat, Donut and Alex) took very good care of me every step of the way. The hospital is well setup and I can have no complains about the surgeon and the rest of the medical staff.
The doctor is very detail oriented and listened to me about my expectations and concerns. All of the staff were wonderful throughout the entires process. I had very minimal during and after my procedure. I am thrilled with the outcome. Absolutely fantastic. 👌
This review is for last December Visiting. Staff were helpful and hospitality. The appointment was on time to consult with doctor who was kind and considerate. She was incredibly helpful and answer my all questions with medical reasons. So, I left this review that happy with the results. And special thanks for your advise to the fantastic local street food near your place, I loved them too.
What a fantastic hospital. I was nervous beforehand about having a breast augmentation, but the surgeon and all the staff made me feel confident. The surgeon listened to everything about what I wanted, extremely meticulous and attentive as well. They have modern equipment and the hospital is squeaky clean! The procedure was really smooth, I felt really comfortable and well taken care of. There is staff who can speak English.I am extremely satisfied with the results!! 🥰🥰
That was the best experience I've had in a hospital. Being in a hospital sucks😔 but the whole staff made my stay a special one. 😆 They were truly amazing. My doctor was remarkable and the nurses really went above and beyond to comfort me in every way possible. They checked on me every 10 minutes or so prior and after the surgery to reassure me that everything was going to be ok.
I accidentally cut my neck while opening glass bottle near carotid artery and had minor bleeding and slight pain, I could not see clearly what was going on on my neck and my family was away. I decided to go Bandon hospital ( near Big C) because it was the nearest to my house and because I already went there to get health certificate for my work permit before. Staff and doctors were really helpful, kind and caring, took me to emergency straight away and did all they needed to do. I want to thank staff for patience and professionalism though my wound wasn't that serious.

Female Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty), also known as a Reduction Mammoplasty, is a surgical operation to reduce the weight and volume of the breasts. During the procedure, fat, glandular tissue and skin are removed from the breasts, which are then reshaped and the nipples repositioned.
Breast size is determined by genes, hormones, body frame, and weight. For most women, breast size is proportionate to the body, but for some, the breasts are particularly large. Large breasts can cause physical symptoms such as Discomfort, Backache, Neck pain, skin irritations.
Psychological distress: Common complaints from women with large breasts include not being able to wear fashionable clothes and finding it difficult to take part in active sports.
Large breasts are particularly sensitive to the hormone estrogen. They can grow particularly large during adolescence or later in life following the menopause or because of the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Some women also develop a noticeable asymmetry (difference in size or shape) between their breasts.
Breast or mammary gland is a milk-producing organ of the female body. It is located in your thoracic region. Some women suffer from a condition called macromastia. It can be due to various reasons such as hypertrophy of adipose tissue in the breast, after menopause, postpartum, genetics, etc. In this condition, your breasts are sagging and their size is bigger in proportion to your body causing a number of problems. A woman affected by macromastia suffers from pain in the head, neck, shoulders, and back. Blood circulation and respiration are also disturbed. In males, it is used to treat gynecomastia. Surgery is performed to reduce the size of your breasts. It is known as breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty. This operation comes under the category of plastic surgery. While performing the surgery, the nipple-areola complex (NAC) is preserved to make sure that lactational ability is not affected. The mammoplasty is performed for three reasons, aesthetic, physical and psychological. The surgery is often associated with Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift.
The procedure begins with making you lay in the supine position. Anesthesia is given to avoid pain during surgery. The area is sterilized and an incision is given around the areola and down your breasts. The flap of skin containing areola and nipple is displaced and excessive fat, breast tissue, and skin are removed to lessen the size of your mammary gland. In the next step, breasts are reshaped, areola and nipples are again placed over the reduced breasts and stitches are given. In some cases, when a large amount of tissue and fat is removed, skin flap with areola and nipples is detached and repositioned at a higher level according to the new size. Drainage tubes are inserted into the breasts to drain away blood and fluid. Bandages are applied over the stitched incisions. You are asked to wear a surgical bra. It is tried to make both breasts look alike; however, small variations in the size of breasts and areola can be there.
Surgery can last between 2 to 5 hours and sometimes even longer depending upon the size of your breasts and amount of fat and tissue that is to be removed - an overnight stay as an inpatient is required. After monitoring your condition, you are discharged from the hospital. You have to stay for at least 14 days in Thailand for follow up procedures. Regular check-ups are advised in the first few days after surgery. Oral pain killers are given to deal with pain and swelling. Stitches are removed in 2 weeks after which you are allowed to go home. In case you notice any redness, secretion, abnormal pain or inflammation, consult your doctor.
It takes several months for recovery from a breast reduction surgery. You cannot go to work for 1 to 2 weeks after the surgery. There will be pain and swelling in the initial days for which you are given some medicines. Avoid intensive physical activity for at least 1 month. You are asked not to wear underwire bras for a few months. You are allowed to wear a normal bra after 4 weeks. It takes 6 to 8 weeks for the swelling and tenderness to go away. Even after complete recovery, scars do not disappear. However, they are faded and become less visible. Changes continue to take place for a year after going through this surgery.
You should consider the following points to take care of yourself after surgery:
Breast reduction mammoplasty is found to be successful in most of the cases. According to a survey, 80% of women are satisfied with the results of the surgery. This effectively reduces neck pain, back pain, headache, and shoulder pain, with your breasts no longer sagging and causing these problems. Respiratory and circulatory problems are also resolved. In case this surgery is not successful, it leaves prominent scars which can be subjected to hypertrophy. There might be less than the required amount of tissue and fat removal. Sometimes, more breast tissue is removed leaving your chest flat. A secondary breast reduction surgery is performed to cope with this.
