Augmentation mammoplasty or breast augmentation is an elective plastic surgical procedure that aims to increase breast volume. It can be performed using breast implants or fat grafting.
Southeast Asian countries, particularly Thailand, excel in plastic and cosmetic surgery. The country has been recognised numerous times as a cosmetic surgery hub for both Asians and Westerners. This is mainly because the cost of the procedures in the country is often up to 75% cheaper than in the US or Europe. It also features several first-class medical facilities with international accreditation and many of its doctors have developed specialist expertise in many cosmetic procedures over the years. Many of them were educated in the West or have completed advanced training at some of the most prestigious and well-respected medical institutions in the world.
Deeply committed to delivering exceptional treatment outcomes and enhanced patient safety, many hospitals and dedicated cosmetic surgery centres in Thailand now perform the procedure using innovative and up-to-date techniques. These include micro-fat grafting, a minimally invasive implant-free technique. It significantly minimises risks and complications and offers natural-looking results and faster recovery time. Such technique is popular in Western countries but is up to 5 times more expensive when compared to Southeast Asia.
Other than Thailand, high-quality augmentation mammoplasty can also be had in Singapore, which remains to be the top choice for medical tourists who seek the highest level of care that is comparable to the US or Europe. Singapore’s healthcare system has always been one of the best in the world, and the country has repeatedly been recognised for always being at the forefront of innovation. Also, since Singapore is home to some of the best medical schools in the world, its surgeons’ skills and qualifications are on par with their Western counterparts.
