Surgery WarrantyThe breast implant brands we offer come with their own Warranty. There is an additional Revision Warranty available for Breast Augmentation patients only, that can be purchased at the Hospital. Our Surgery Travel Warranty is only applicable for clients having surgery in Thailand.
SwimmingIt is best to initially avoid swimming and then limit extended exposure to water; baths, steam, saunas, pools, ocean, particularly to any suture sites, for the first couple of weeks, then up to 3 months. Suture sites are porous and susceptible to infection and will result in poor healing and bad scarring. If you are in water, ensure that it is not for extended times and dry off your suture sites completely, and make sure any bandages or tapes are not soaking wet. If they are, they will need to be changed.
TanningNo fake/spray tans before surgery. It is not advisable to expose your suture sites to sunlight after surgery for up to 3 months.
When is the consultation?If you are a local (within 3-4 hours from hospital), your consultation will be held 2-4 weeks prior to surgery, to ensure your quote and recommendation is still valid. If you are not local, your consultation will be held 1-3 days prior to your surgery.
What are your Surgeon’s qualifications?All of our affiliated Surgeons are qualified Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons, have a minimum of 12 years surgical training and education and are hand selected by our Head Surgeons.
WeightFor optimum results, we recommend being at your goal weight, and within a healthy BMI range, prior to having surgery. Any weight fluctuations post surgery will affect your aesthetic outcome. See here for more information.
