I had a bad breast implant surgery one year ago by another doctor (not by Dr Colin Tham). The position too high and the scars were sink in. After depressed for a year, I decide to ask Dr Colin to help me redo cos my friend got hers done by him and the result look v good. Dr Colin change my round implants to teardrop and put them below muscle. He also help me to redo the scar and even help me laser after for free. I regret never go to Dr Colin 1st. The 1st doctor advertise his price is cheaper, but in the end plus plus plus end up more than Dr Colin. Maybe cos I am not local. I learn my lesson, but at least now I like my breasts

Dr Colin Tham is a plastic surgeon who answered a question from a DoctorxDentist reader about fat transfer versus breast implants. Here are some key takeaways.
