When you are running a search for plastic surgeons, Phuket may be a location to consider if you are looking for good-quality, affordability - and a stunning place to have a holiday before or after your procedure.
Cosmetic and plastic surgery in Thailand is popular with international patients, particularly because of the cost, but also the expertise of the surgeons. Together with the modern facilities at the clinics it all adds up to good option.
Traveling for cosmetic surgery?
You may well wonder about going to a foreign country for medical work. You should know that hundreds and thousands of people from all over the globe do just that – go to another country for the otherwise unaffordable surgical or cosmetic work that they want. This is largely thanks to high price difference for cosmetic surgeries and other treatments that these countries offer.
For instance breast augmentation may cost an average of AU$15,300 (NZD16,620, £8,897, €10,556, US$11,500, CAD15,777) in your home country, but in Phuket, breast augmentation may cost around AU$6,650 (NZD7,225, £3,868, €4,590 US$5,000, CAD6,860).
Most of the developing countries have excellent hospitals and clinics and, thanks to the lower cost of living, they can afford to provide medical treatment at a low cost. It is easier to travel as well because there are increasing numbers of airlines flying to holiday destinations like Phuket and offering cheap fares in the bargain. Despite adding the cost of travel, accommodation and medical treatment, you still save a huge chunk of money. And you get to have a holiday at the same time.
Quality of plastic surgeons in Phuket
You may be concerned that you will not get good quality treatment or care in Phuket. However, doctors in Thailand have to undergo a rigorous medical education before they get the license to practice. Many even go to western countries for advanced training or work experience or both.
A number of plastic surgeons in Phuket may have international affiliations to reputed boards. Even hospitals may be JCI certified to have the ISO standardization certificate, testifying to the high quality of care and treatment and amenities you will find at these medical centers.
