Having breast implants in Thailand could save you thousands of dollars off the average price at an Australian clinic—with your flights and accommodation included too. Many women from across Australia are combining a visit to Thailand with breast augmentation surgery , and with the help of Medical Departures doing this is now easier than ever.

Why Choose Thailand for Breast Implant Surgery

Thailand has a long history of welcoming international patients searching for low-cost elective cosmetic surgeries, and you can find modern medical facilities all over the country. Choose from a wide range of Thai hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission International , staffed by bilingual plastic surgeons who specialise in breast implant surgery.

With highly-skilled doctors and quality treatment comes safety, and that is exactly what you can expect when you have treatment at a Medical Departures Verified Clinic. Breast implant complications are very rare , and you can further minimise any risk by having surgery at a Thai clinic that has had its medical licenses checked and treatment rooms inspected.

What Type of Breast Implants Do You Want?

Enlarging the size of your breasts can be achieved with both saline implants and silicone implants , but which type of implant is going to be right for you? The main difference is the look and feel; silicone implants are believed to more closely mimic natural breast tissue. Another difference is cost, with silicone implants being slightly more expensive their saline counterparts. Make sure you discuss how you want to change your breasts with your plastic surgeon, who can then recommend either silicone or saline implants to meet your desired results.

The Price of Breast Implants Compared: Thailand vs Australia

You already know that you can save money on breast implants by visiting a plastic surgeon in Thailand instead of Australia, but just how much do you stand to save? Here is a comparison of the costs to make it completely clear, and hopefully this information will help you make your decision about travelling to Thailand for breast implant surgery.

Visit a plastic surgeon in an Australian city like Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane, or Perth and you can expect to pay an average of AUD$16,500 for breast implants. Now over to Thailand, where the average price for breast implants at plastic surgery clinics in Bangkok, Phuket, and Pattaya is AUD$7,000.

As you can see, breast augmentation surgery is less than half the price in Thailand compared to Australia. On average, you can expect to save AUD$8,500, and in some cases, the savings can even reach over AUD$10,000. While saving money is great, it is important that you choose a trusted breast implant clinic in Thailand to have your treatment.
