Breast Reduction in Thailand

Are you considering breast reduction surgery in Thailand? Make an appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can help you find out more about the procedure and what you can expect.


Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to reduce the size of the breasts. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will remove excess skin, fat and tissue in order to resize the breasts.

Breast reduction surgery aims to address a number of issues caused by large breasts. Patients choose to undergo this type of surgery in order to fix health problems associated with large breasts, including back and neck pain, skin irritation, bra strap indentations, poor posture and interference with normal daily activities such as exercise.

Breast reduction surgery can also alleviate self-consciousness associated with large, heavy breasts as well as allowing you to participate in activities that were impossible before. It will also open up a number of new possibilities to explore as far as clothing and fashion are concerned.

Ideal candidates for breast reduction

There is no optimal age for breast reduction, although ideally your breasts should have fully stopped developing. Weight fluctuations can also affect breast size, so it is important to have maintained a steady weight for at least 6 months before surgery.

You may be a suitable candidate for breast reduction if:

  • Your breasts are too big and causing physical discomfort
  • You experience chronic neck, back, or shoulder pain due to the size of your breasts
  • Your breasts are heavy and drooping or saggy
  • Your bra straps dig into your shoulders leaving deep indentations
  • You experience skin irritation under the breasts
  • Large breasts limit your physical activity and stop you from exercising
  • You experience discomfort or insecurity due to the size of your breasts
  • You have different-sized breasts (breast asymmetry)


Breast reduction surgery can be performed using a number of different techniques. Your plastic surgeon will choose the most appropriate technique based on your physical needs and aesthetic goals.


Breast reduction surgery can be performed using a number of different techniques. Your plastic surgeon will choose the most appropriate technique based on your physical needs and aesthetic goals.

The most common technique involves making three incisions: one around the perimeter of the areola; a vertical incision running downwards from the bottom of the areola and a further horizontal incision along the breast fold. This ultimately results in an incision pattern shaped like an anchor or inverted “T”, which is why it is also known as the inverted-T technique.

After the incision is made, the surgeon will remove excess skin, fat and tissue in order to resize the breasts. The nipple and areola are also repositioned, so they sit higher, in a more youthful and agreeable position.

After surgery, gauze dressings are applied to the breasts, followed by selecting the right-sized surgical bra. You will be given painkillers to relieve pain after the operation, and the pain will usually subside within a few days.

Before the Surgery

  • Read the pre-surgery instructions to help prevent complications and improve outcomes for your surgery.
  • Do not eat or drink after midnight before the surgery.
  • Breast reduction may be performed on an outpatient basis or require an overnight stay at the hospital. Your plastic surgeon will advise if you need to be admitted.
  • Plan to take 2-3 weeks off work and your normal activities.


  • You may start to perform light household chores after 2-3 days.
  • Bruising and swelling will begin to subside after a few weeks.
  • Your surgeon may suggest wearing a sports bra 24 hours a day for the first few months after surgery.
  • Sutures will usually be removed after a week or two or they may dissolve on their own.
  • You will probably have some scarring around your nipples and running down your breasts. These scars will naturally fade within a year.
