Fed up of constantly looking tired and fatigued and being told that you need a good night’s rest? An eyebrow lift in Phuket may be just the answer, especially if you're looking to combine affordable cosmetic surgery with a holiday.
With age, you may find that:
A browplasty can help tighten and smoothen the top half of your face from your forehead to your eyes, immediately bestowing a more youthful appearance.
As you have to pay for cosmetic surgical procedures out of your own pocket, it is often much more cost-effective to go abroad, with all kinds of cosmetic surgery costing less in Thailand than places like Australia and the UK.
The medical facilities in Phuket are excellent and the hospital staff English speaking and highly qualified. They are likely to be members of international organizations such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Phuket is highly accessible as most major airlines fly there. Undergoing a cosmetic procedure at an attractive tourist destination that has great weather enables you to combine a trip abroad with plastic surgery at an affordable price.
Plus, as this is Thailand, your hotel stay, local transport and food will not burn a hole in your pocket.
A simple internet search will yield many clinics and institutes in Phuket that offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures, minor and major. However, it can well be a shot in the dark because each place seems to be very good, but you really have no idea of the veracity or otherwise of its claims.

For different results, there are varied techniques used for an eyebrow lift. You can opt for:
Your surgeon can advise you as to what is best for you, depending on your age, your appearance, the condition of your skin and wrinkles and also what you want to achieve. Whichever kind of procedure advised you can be assured that there will be no visible scars.
The doctor will either use local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia and the surgery will typically take between one and two hours; the whole process will be over within three hours. You may need to stay overnight if required.
After the procedure, the doctor will put on dressings and you may be advised painkillers and antibiotics and also need to use ice packs. Stitches and staples will be removed after a week and complete recovery can take up to 10 days.
Cosmetic surgery in Phuket is very reasonably priced as compared to prices in Australia. You can pay as little as AUD $2,100 in Phuket for an eyebrow lift as against upwards of AUD $6,000 in Australia. Prices vary with the clinics and the procedure advised.
