Breast Augmentation

Recommended Posts

My wife had hers done by Howard Klein in Christchurch about 8 years ago.  My sister-in-law and my best mate's wife have had theirs done by Mr Klein too.  Also my mate's wife's friend, and her sister too...  He doesn't advertise much, as most of his clients come from referrals.

He's pretty good, and has an talent for making them look quite natural (once they've settled down).  You see a lot of these overseas jobs with Hollywood style high-profile implants that look great in clothes, but get a bikini on them and it's extremely obvious that they're "bolt-on's".  Klein sets his clients up with the right profile/shape implants and positioning to get them looking as close to natural as possible.

 

Hi Howard.

 

but seriously Thailand or even places such as the UAE are much cheaper than nz and aus and the surgeons are much more experienced at the procedures. People think of Thailand and associate the low cost with a poor job... The fact is that top surgeons over there would do more tit jobs in a year than what most surgeons in nz do in their career.

Your correct there Tom.. GF spent a while researching surgeons and hospitals with the best reputation.. She was more than happy with the results..  As you know it was money well spent.. Lol

Thailand does some of the best breasts. I know people who have gotten them done in NZ or Aus, then had then revised in Thailand because of the price and also the look of them. Girls who are lifting/body building should opt for over the muscle implants as the muscle tightning over the implant can greaten the chance of it coming out the side. Both saline and silicon have their pros and cons, probably best to chat with a plastic surgeon about this. A lot of Thai surgeons will so online consultations.

Hi all thought I'd keep you updated, thanks for all the advice!

Booked in with Bangkok Hospital Phuket with either Dr Narupon or Dr Piyapas for late May/early June, both referred to me from friends who have been patients of theirs. 

Pretty confident and really excited about getting it done, best place in the world from people who I personally have spoken too.

I have been advised that augmentation with implants under the chest muscles looks far more natural for females who intend competing in body building shows.

When dieted down for a competition with low body fat levels subcutaneous implants are much more obvious.

GF had implants subcutaneously 3 yrs ago, she had the option of under chest muscle implants but was advised they are more painful and take longer to heal... She won the NABBA-NZ National figure title at 6% BF so judges weren't too unhappy with overall appearance...

Remember competition BF levels are only retained for a few days or weeks, after that breast appearance returns to normal...

I thought breast implants were meant to replace that saggy look of the mamory glands, and that subcutaneous implants best replicated that look, by their very positioning at the area that was previously saggy..?

Good luck and enjoy the beautiful island called "Phuket". :) Like previous comments, you can't go wrong with reputable Thai surgeons. They've been doing it for years.

Females who compete in bodybuilding and intend to continue competing usually keep their body fat levels low between contests. And imo at these relatively normal levels for body building females you can still tell an implant.

For instance when completing leg pressses it is not unusual to seee the implants move up and down the chest when the movements are being performed.

When implants are positioned under the pec muscle the implant position is not visable.

Anyway this is really a subjective issue, and what pleases the individual should be more important than an realistically short period while competing at body building.

From my knowledge under the muscle carrries more risk of effecting your lifting - ive read a lot more stories where under the muscle has caused issues with this. It makes sense to me that if it were above the muscle its not actually messing with of the tissues related to lifting or training so would carry less risk or unwanted side effects that aren't purely aesthetic. 

Not to promote another forum but you should read the threads on siouxcountry about this as they are extensive.

Hi All, 

Anyone on here that's had one before? Either in NZ or Thailand? Doing some research before I get mine done and would like to hear people's stories experiences etc it would be much appreciated Smile

PM me as my wife had hers done in Thailand November. She back to full training. It was good but she had problems with the after care or lack of it. From a A to a D  cup. She very happy. Been fit and tone made her healing real fast as most of the other girls she met were not in the same league

I look forward to hearing how you go Upforgym, I've been researching this tool but the idea of being overseas if anything goes wrong makes me a bit nervous!

There is actually a form of breast implant called sub - fascial, where the implants are placed directly under the pectoral fascia but not under the muscle itself.

So because of this, It will not interfere with lifting as much, and as a bonus, because the implant is covered by the thick, leathery fascia, when you cut down for a show at really low bodyfat, the fake 'ridges' of the implant are not going to be seen as easily if at all underneath the skin.

On the negative side, this it's quite a bit more expensive and is not a common procedure, meaning that there are not that many experienced doctors there to do it.
