Technology has certain brought with it many benefits; not least in the field of cosmetic surgery, with state of the art clinics and top plastic surgeons who perform a range of procedures, and if you are thinking that maybe you could improve an aspect of your appearance, here is a list of popular plastic surgery procedures that many women undergo.
- Rhinoplasty – One of the most popular in Asia, women’s nose augmentation (known as เสริมจมูกผู้หญิง in Thai)can reshape the nose, and for Asian women in particular, this allows them to have a more prominent bridge and nose line. There are two main forms of the ‘nose job, which are a) open rhinoplasty and b) closed rhinoplasty. Closed means the incisions are made into the inner surfaces of the nostrils, thus leaving no visible scarring and this is the standard type of procedure that is used on the majority of occasions. The open form involves making incisions into the soft, narrow line of tissue between the nostrils, and although this is visible, there is minimal scarring, if any.
- Breast Augmentation – Again, this treatment is very popular among Asian females, who tend to naturally have smaller breasts than their western counterparts, and often, this can affect a woman’s self-confidence. If you are looking to have silicone implants inserted to increase the size of your breasts, start with a Google search, which will bring up a list of Bangkok clinics, where the best plastic surgeons live and work. Of course, you would first have a discussion with the surgeon, who wishes to know in what way you would like your breasts reshaped, and at the same time, he or she would make you aware of the risks involved with surgery, plus you would see many before and after images, which gives you a clear idea of what can be achieved.
- Liposuction – This fat cell removal treatment is popular with those who wish to remove stubborn fat in the midriff, buttocks, hips and thigh areas, and any state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery clinic would be able to perform this procedure. Liposuction can also be used with breast reduction and facelift treatment, and there is very little downtime with this safe procedure.
- Chin Augmentation – This is another very popular treatment that Thai women like to have, which can dramatically (or slightly) alter the shape of your chin. Before and after images help the patient to see the subtle differences that can be made by removing bone or adding to the jawline in specific places. Some women, for example, prefer to have a more pointed chin, which can easily be achieved with the right process, and like all other cosmetic surgery treatments, the surgeon would request an initial examination, when he can discuss the patent’s needs and see what is possible.
It cannot be over-stressed how important it is to use a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon when looking to undergo any of the above treatments, and while you are browsing websites, check out the client reviews, which is a great way to discover how patients feel about their treatment.
