Breast Implant Surgery Myths!

Breast Implant Surgery Myths!

Breast Implant Surgery Myths! I have to replace my implants periodically. For most women, their implants will last anywhere from 8 to approximately 30 years. The standard warranty for the majority of implant manufacturers will cover them for at least ten years. You can check with different manufacturers to see if different options are available. Consult your surgeon, as he will have experience with the different companies and may prefer one over another. A mammogram will break my implant. A mammogram screening can be more challenging for a woman with breast implants. The x-rays used for breast imaging cannot go through implants well enough to show the breast tissue that is over or under it. Basically the part of the breast tissue covered by the implant will not be able to be detected by the normal screening. A process is in place to take additional pictures during the screening process. This allows the most breast tissue to be seen by mammography. This procedure is referred to as “Implant Displacement Views”. These additional views are easier to perform in women whose implants are behind the chest muscle. It is very rare for a mammogram to cause an implant to rupture, but always tell your technician that you have them. They all look fake! Avoid an unnatural looking result by making sure you express your wishes regarding size and look and feel to your surgeon. Inside clothing it’s usually impossible to tell if breasts are natural or not. The most natural look can be achieved by placing the implant under the muscle with an implant of adequate size.

Confidence Boosting Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand

Confidence Boosting Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand

Cosmetic surgery procedures may be undertaken for several reasons. Some plastic surgeries help people regain their former appearance after illnesses or accidents. Probably, though, most popular plastic surgery procedures are cosmetic surgeries, in which we either try to improve and enhance nature or turn back time and slow down the aging process and by doing so, boost our self-confidence. Both of these reasons are perfectly valid motivations. The wealthy and the famous seem to be constantly improving their natural features or rejuvenating them. But today these procedures are not confined to the wealthy and famous especially if we travel to Thailand to undertake cosmetic surgery. The country itself imbues the traveler with healthy vibes! Confidence and self-esteem are absolutely vital components  of a balanced and healthy life. Although in comparison with the tragic problems experienced by some people, a lack of confidence in one’s looks may seem minor, that does not negate the way in which low self esteem corrodes and cripples our lives. Based on first hand experience of both men and women who have experienced not only enhanced self-confidence as a result of cosmetic surgery but also an enormous boost to their health we will present several cosmetic surgery procedures that can boost your self-confidence. Is Cosmetic Surgery Worth it? Cosmetic surgery  should not be undertaken on a whim, that’s for sure. As much as it can boost your self-confidence, it can also make you feel miserable if you chose a cosmetic procedure which does not fit your body type or you don’t find a surgeon willing to tailor a procedure to your specific and very individual...

What You Need to Know When Planning Your Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand

What You Need to Know When Planning Your Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand

Instant Guide to Cosmetic Tourism in Bangkok     So if you have decided that you want a cosmetic procedure or even SRS then you have probably begun to search the internet and perhaps already considered traveling abroad? Europe offers some much cheaper options and some websites often indicate relative prices across world destinations but it is a little more difficult to actually find these deals as all sorts of extras are added on to the basic cost and often the price is dependent upon various conditions. There are some options like South America and India to consider. Low prices and exotic destinations are tempting but in my opinion they pale in comparison to Thailand and Bangkok in particular. Here’s why: Any country that has a largely rural population like India or Thailand are likely to be less sophisticated than western countries in terms of hygiene, communication and transport as well as accommodation. In any research I have undertaken in this area I have asked myself one question: ‘Would I be content for Annie, my partner, to undergo surgery in this clinic, with this surgeon or in this destination’? Only if I can answer, ‘Yes’ will I suggest anyone else do the same. I would not encourage Annie to travel to India or South America or even to some clinics in Thailand. Because the very elements I mentioned above; hygiene, communication and transport are some of the most crucial to a successful cosmetic surgery outcome. However, all is not lost! Although Thailand is a rural society in which even beach resorts are often subject to power cuts and transport...

Annie & David, Your Hosts

 My Cosmetic Surgery in Thailand   David Bonnie CEO of MCOST talks about the reasons he and his partner Annie Andasuk embarked on the business and what they can do to help you.  “Back in 2012  after living in Thailand for a few years a lot of people we met on our travels suggested that we start a business helping people find safe and affordable cosmetic surgery in Thailand. They remarked on their own experience of ‘not knowing where to start or who to trust’. We didn’t know much back then apart from the experience of Annie and her friends. But after a lot of research we decided to start our business and help friends and new friends in getting the best cosmetic surgery procedures available in Thailand. That was several years ago and since then we are delighted to have helped lots of people on their adventures here in Thailand.”   As well as the relative cheapness of cosmetic surgery there are many other reasons for choosing to have procedures done here in Thailand. More than 89% of medical tourists traveled to Thailand, India or Singapore in 2010, with Bangkok and Singapore leading the pack. But the cost of hotel rooms and treatment are both far more expensive in Singapore than in the Thai capital, making Bangkok the most popular place for medical tourism in the world. Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport is serviced by airlines from around the world, reasonably-priced hotel rooms abound, there is reliable public transportation and 30-day visas for many nationalities are easy to get upon arrival, all of which help to make a stay —...
What Type of Breast Implants are the Best?

What Type of Breast Implants are the Best?

    Here is a pretty concise review of the three main types of breast implants. Shaped silicone implants, the smooth round silicone implants and the saline implants — all of which are good implants. There’s not one implant that’s better than the others. It’s just a matter of what’s better for you depending on what you’re looking for and the results that you’re hoping for. You’ll first notice that the shaped implant looks white, because it’s textured. It’s got a rough surface. The reason for that is that we want it to stick to where we’re putting it. We’re put it in and we don’t want it to rotate, because that’s gonna look kind of strange. It’s got a rough surface and it stays where we put it, which is an advantage if that’s what you like. It’s a little firmer than the other gels. It doesn’t move around. Normal breast tissue when you lie down will kind of move off to the side. When you stand up, it will change shapes. This implant is made not to do that. It’s gonna stay where we put it and be a little bit more of a youthful appearance, which is great in women who don’t have a lot of breast tissue to start with and looking for a proportionate outcome that is on the firm side. It’s the gummy bear implant people often refer to. In conclusion, this type of implant is perhaps best for a smaller augmentation that is going to be fixed in position even when your body moves. The other implant is the gold standard, which...
