Get rid of a tired, sad or grumpy-looking expression with an eyebrow lift in Thailand. Medical Departures has cultivated a growing list of partner surgeons in one of the medical tourism capitals of the world; discover how we can help you save money while turning back the years with this procedure.
Gravity eventually takes its toll on all areas of our bodies, including our foreheads, eyebrows and upper eyelids, causing our brows to take on a more horizontal, flatter appearance.
A brow or forehead lift, as this surgery is also known, can reverse this by effectively removing the deep creases and wrinkles caused by our facial expressions, as well as lifting the brow to give a younger-looking, more arched appearance.
Thailand is well-known for the quality of its healthcare facilities, with world-class surgeons and ISO-certified clinics, and some 60 Joint Commission International-accredited hospitals (more than any other country in Southeast Asia).
Hospitals here have received heavy investment since the country started to welcome savvy international patients back in the 1990s. The best medical centers are equipped with all the latest technology; from pharmacy robots that dish out medication in pre-made packs to reduce human error to revolutionary Novalis-shaped beam surgery used in cancer treatment to an innovative, less invasive form of open-heart surgery known as OPCAB; you’ll find it all in Thailand. Entire wings of hospitals are dedicated to athletics injuries, where Australian sports stars especially seek regular treatment. Medical staff are well-trained and qualified and have the necessary skills and expertise to deliver care on par with any you would receive at home.
The prices here are so much lower—an essential factor that draws in millions each year for treatment. This is not because inferior equipment or technology, materials or drugs are used, but because cost of living is far lower here. Doctors in Thailand earn roughly a third of the salary Australian doctors do, and nurses only a quarter of their Australian counterparts.
You can receive exceptionally high-quality care in Thailand if you choose your surgeon wisely. To maximize your safety, booking with Medical Departures makes sense. As one of the world's leading online medical travel agencies, Medical Departures helps thousands of patients every year obtain affordable, high-quality medical care abroad, with Thailand being one of the most popular destinations.
We also perform a number of background checks, verifying doctor qualifications, experience and professional affiliations to ensure you can rely on their expertise to carry out your brow lift.
There are a number of different methods for performing an eyebrow lift:
The Endoscopic Brow Lift uses a long thin tube (endoscope) with a camera and light to make small incisions in the scalp through which the surgeon works on the forehead.
The Open Brow Lift makes a long incision in the hairline above the forehead, or in one of the creases, where the excess fat and skin are removed and the remaining skin pulled taut and sutured.
The Limited Incision is a combination of both procedures, often used for Crow’s feet. The scars are hidden in the temporal hairline and is of limited use for problems in the center of the brow.
In Thailand, the cost of an eyebrow lift is around AUD $3,000 compared to AUD $6,500 in Australia, for example.
