Medical Departures can help you find excellent facilities for double eyelid surgery in Phuket with our quality-checked online listings.
Phuket is one of Thailand’s most popular tourist attractions – and little wonder with its idyllic beaches, turquoise waters and sunny disposition. It’s the perfect place for a pre or post-surgery break.
Double eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) can be used to treat a range of problems; as well as wrinkles and eyebags, Asian patients with "single" eyelids commonly undergo this procedure to form a double eyelid, which opens up the eye area and makes eyes appear larger. The procedure is sometimes known as Asian blepharoplasty.
Already a favorite holiday location for international travelers, Phuket is also making a name for itself as a world-class destination in terms of health and well-being tourism. There are plenty of excellent quality spa clinics on the island for some real relaxing and recuperation time, and there is a vast supply of leisure pursuits to help you unwind.
It stands to reason that medical tourism is also among Phuket’s excellent quality offerings. Competitive pricing and a commitment to delivering excellence to international patients ensures that the standards remain high.
Doctor training is generally excellent in Thailand – it is a respected profession and while there are no formal requirements for qualified doctors to obtain cosmetic surgery qualifications, many do undertake further specialist training.

Our listings show doctor qualifications and professional memberships, as well as publishing clinic photos and real patient testimonials.
