Having cosmetic surgery in Thailand is popular. The quality and skill of the surgeons, the first class hospital treatment and the attractive cost all add up to a satisfying package. Not surprisingly people come from all over the world for face lifts, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation or reduction, even sex changes. Typically operations cost less than a quarter of the price in developed countries, off-setting the expense of flights and accommodation.
Furthermore, Thailand is noted as a wonderful place to stay during the recovery period, when you can hole up in a luxury Bangkok hotel, lie on a beach in the southern provinces or hideaway in a mountainous northern resort. Either you can opt for a private clinic or use a well known hospital for peace of mind.
Breast surgery Thailand
You can have breast enlargement surgery in Thailand at Bangkok, Phuket, Samui, Pattaya or Chiang Mai and be virtually assured of the quality. Plastic surgeons in Thailand are highly skilled, speak fluent English and charge from US$2,000 for mommoplasty with mentor/ES implants.
Breast enlargement or augmentation is a common procedure that an increasing number of typically flat chested Thais are undertaking, and the surgeons have plenty of experience with this as well as breast reduction or re-shaping as well.
Surgeons in Thailand are professional and undertake a full consultation on desired outcome, before planning the operation and recovery.
If you have concerns about guarantees of quality, you can use a surgeon who operates under the responsibility of one of the top rated Bangkok hospitals.
Liposuction in Thailand
Liposuction in Thailand is also very popular with medical tourists looking to lose some pounds the easy way while enjoying the trappings of Thai hospitality. Upper thighs, buttocks and stomachs are all commonly treated in Thailand’s cosmetic surgery clinics and hospitals. Again price is the big selling point, where a standard procedure costs US$1,500-2,000, while a full tummy tuck is more.
These are common procedures with low risk of future problems. Clinics and hospitals in Bangkok have conducted thousands of such operations and are experienced and skilled at liposuction, using current technologies. The private hospitals in Thailand are noted as being first class, modern, clean and professionally run.
Rhinoplastic surgery in Thailand
Having nose surgery in Thailand is a popular alternative to getting rhinoplasty at home, as you can have the procedure done in a top cosmetic clinic, or comprehensive hospital, and then recuperate on the beaches of Thailand; all for less than the cost of just the treatment back home. Typically a nose reshape costs around US$1,000.
Thailand has become a leading country for medical tourism, particularly rhinoplasty surgery. Thailand boasts some very skilled and discerning surgeons who have been trained abroad and have built up a very impressive amount of experience. They conduct more than a dozen operations per week on average, and customers note the generally high standard of theatre technologies, cleanliness and comfort of the hospital, plus the professionalism and hospitality of nursing staff.
Although Bangkok is the main centre for rhinoplasty in Thailand, there are professional clinics in Chiang Mai and Phuket that offer the service in a more relaxed recovery environment. Having a nose job in Thailand has become popular too with Thais who desire a more prominent Caucasian nose, therefore surgeons are quite familiar with the demands for a better looking Western nose.
Face lift in Thailand
Having a face lift in Thailand is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. The best hospitals in Bangkok offering cosmetic surgery are highly professional, with English-speaking plastic surgeons, quality equipment and reasonable prices. Costs range from US$2,500. Many of Thailand’s doctors have been trained abroad but have gained a formidable amount of experience positioning their industry as a leader in medical tourism.
The most attractive reason to have a face lift in Thailand is the cost. Quality and results satisfaction are generally high and offer very good value relative to the cost of such an operation in a developing country. The surgeons are as good but the hospital and theatre costs are a fraction of that in the West, therefore making it cost effective to fly to Bangkok and spend a week recovering in Thailand. This is particularly notable since you can easily afford a luxury hotel and week long retreat in an private beach resort waiting for the incision scars to heal.
Typically you will be taken through considerable consultation discussing your desired outcome, and the risks involved before going ‘under the scalpel’. There are generally very few incidents of complaint or litigation subsequent to the outcome, certainly it’s not a notable problem with cosmetic surgery in Thailand.
