Many women want to undergo breast reduction surgery because they have oversized breasts that make them feel uncomfortable. Disproportionally large breasts can stop you from participating in physical activities. Also, women who have large breasts can experience chronic back, shoulder, or even neck pain and can make it difficult for them to fit into clothing and bras. Since a breast reduction surgery can cost a lot of money, many women choose to undergo surgery in Thailand or Mexico. If you are considering a breast reduction surgery in Thailand, these tips below might help you!


Research is one of the most important things you should carry out when you are planning to undergo surgery abroad. Look for the best hospitals in Thailand for breast reduction surgery; learn about their surgeons and the services that they offer. Make sure the hospital is accredited by renowned organizations, such as Joint Commission International (JCI). Besides the medical facility, make sure that the surgeon is experienced and skilled. You will also need to ensure that you are well-informed about breast surgery, such as what you need to prepare for, how the procedure is performed, the aftercare, and how long you need to stay in Thailand. Your research should also include visa requirements, so you apply for it in advance. If you feel the research takes up a lot of your time, you can enquire with MyMediTravel to get all the information you need so they can do the legwork for you. Their website is also filled with every essential fact you need to know, from medical facilities, breast reduction procedures, and even information about Thailand.

Pack Wisely

Packing for a breast reduction surgery is different from packing for a holiday. There are additional items that you will need to take to ensure that you are going to be as comfortable as possible. Make sure you pack loose clothing that does not require pulling because you need to avoid lifting your arms for a while after the surgery. Button up or zip-up tops are the best choices. It is also recommended for you to bring post-surgery bras or sports bra that has no underwire. If you want, you can bring straws for drinking because you will need to be lying in bed during your recovery period.

Really Take Time Off for Recovery

After the surgery, you will experience swelling, bloating, and possibly itching. You will be drowsy and feel some discomfort and pain. After several days, you may start feeling better and you feel like you are ready to go back to your normal routine. However, even when you are feeling stronger, remember that your body is healing. So make sure you take time off work or school, at least for 2 weeks.

The blending of marijuana with other pharmaceutical products for the purpose of medical treatment is being given the go-ahead by the Thai government. Nation Thailand reports that the Ministry of Public Health has approved 17 formulations for use in local health promotion hospitals.

“Sub-district Health Promoting Hospitals are hospitals that are operated by either the MOPH or Department of Local Administration and were initially called “health stations”. These hospitals only have primary care capabilities and often serve villages within districts. Almost all of these hospitals do not accept inpatients and usually have no doctor on duty for the entire time.” – Wikipedia

Dr. Marut Jirasrattasiri, from the Department of Traditional Thai Medicine and Alternative Medicine, says over 60,000 patients have expressed interest in being treated with medicinal marijuana, with the department approving the drug for use.

Currently, 4 hospitals are understood to be participating, 3 of which are in the north-east of the country. These are Khlong Muang Hospital in Nakhon Ratchasima province, Chiang Phin Hospital in the province of Udon Thani, Ban Na Yao Nuea Hospital in Sakon Nakhon province, and Ban Na Pak Khow hospital in the southern province of Phatthalung.

Thai virology expert says no need to panic over new swine flu threat

Thai virology expert says no need to panic over new swine flu threat | The Thaiger

One of Thailand’s leading virologists says that while the new swine flu recently discovered in China does have the potential to become a pandemic, there is no reason to panic at this stage. However, Dr. Yong Poovorawan adds that the catchily named G4 EA H1N1 virus is a mutation of the H1N1 virus, which took hold back in 2009. Because of this mutation, humans would be unlikely to have any immunity if it were to jump from pigs to people.

Meanwhile, speaking at a Senate hearing in the US, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, says the virus is being closely monitored, agreeing that it shares similar properties with both the 2009 virus and the 1918 flu pandemic.

“They’re seeing the virus in swine, in pigs now, that have characteristics of the 2009 H1N1, of the original 1918, of which many of our flu viruses have remnants, as well as segments from other hosts, like swine.”

A report in Asia One says that the virus has been shown to grow and reproduce in the cells of human airways. Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, leading scientists say those working in the swine industry should have their health closely monitored and measures to control the spread of the new swine flu should be put in place as a matter of urgency.

Researchers cite two cases, one in 2016 and one in 2019, where swine flu appears to have infected humans, one a 46 year old, the other a 9 year old child, both of whom had neighbours who had raised pigs. It’s understood this latest virus has been increasing in pigs since 2016, but Amesh Adalja from the John Hopkins Centre for Health Security says the threat of a pandemic has not always been centre stage in the news like it is now.

“We’ve always had potential pandemic flu viruses that we worry about, they just don’t have a media moment like pandemic viruses are having right now. This is one of the flu viruses we’ll have to keep track of, and watch, and understand what its potential might be for causing human infections, just like we do for H5N1 and H7N9, which are the other two potential pandemic flu viruses that we’ve also been tracking.”

Thailand may ease up on medical cannabis restrictions

Thailand may be getting a little more cannabis-friendly. The Food and Drug Administration has drafted a bill to allow private companies to produce medical marijuana. Another stipulation would allow international travellers to bring medical cannabis for personal use if they have the proper import and export license.

Attorney Wirot Poonsuwan wrote an article for Khaosod English explaining the legislations that are in the works. There’s been a ban in place restricting private firms from producing medical marijuana, which is set to end in 2024, but the bill would make it end sooner. Right now, only state agencies or private universities and farmers backed by state agencies can produce medical cannabis. He says the restrictions have caused a shortage of medical cannabis. Under the proposed bill, the production of CBD oil would still need to be backed by a state agency.

Foreign medical marijuana patients are also set to be in luck with the new bill as Poonsuwan says international travelers will be free to carry with them or otherwise import their own CBD oil after applying for and receiving an import license.

Not only would foreigners be able to carry CBD oil over international borders, but he says foreigners living in Thailand would be allowed to grow cannabis plants for their own treatment.
