Top tips on having Breast Reduction Surgery in Thailand

Cita Catellya



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.
