The female breast over time ages like any other part of the human body. Aging brings on a change in breast position that can only be corrected with a breast lift with or without breast augmentation. The first noticeable change is often a sagging of the breast tissue and the nipples point downward.
Dr. Chartchai's patients in Bangkok ask for breast augmentation when they want to increase their breasts by one or more cup sizes. Some may also wish to restore the loss of fullness after pregnancy, to balance a difference in breast sizes or shapes, or as a reconstructive technique after breast cancer surgery.
Large breasts can be a significant problem. Their weight alone prevents many women from doing the things they want to do. They cause neck and back pain, rashes, and many medical problems. They make it difficult or impossible to exercise. For some women, they cause significant psychological problems.
Breast asymmetry is common in women. Uneven breast development may lead to breasts of different sizes or shapes. Some breasts may be tubular with no conical shape at all.
Breast reconstruction is surgery to rebuild a breast's shape after a mastectomy. A common procedure used in breast reconstruction, and one in which Dr. Chartchai is experienced in performing, is a TRAM flap reconstruction.
