Facelift in Pattaya

The Ultimate Guide to Facelift in Pattaya

Want a younger looking face? Have a facelift in Pattaya if you’re wanting this surgery but at a more affordable price. You can typically save 60% in Thailand and with our quality-checked surgeons - and you’ll be in good hands.

It is easy to take care of your body with diet and exercise, but the face soon shows the ravages of age. Non-surgical rejuvenation procedures, facial exercises, use of creams and ointments go only so far to keep the signs of age at bay. If you don’t like the way you look and are actively considering a facelift, Pattaya is the place to get it done.

A surgical facelift works for the area of the face below the eyes. So it helps with:

  • Creases on the face
  • Lines around the lips and nose
  • Loose skin on the cheek
  • Double chin
  • Jaw line

If you have forehead furrows and eye bags, you will need to combine facelift surgery with a browlift (for the forehead), blepharoplasty (for the eyes) and a neck lift.

Why should you get facelift surgery done in Pattaya?

Facelift surgery is quite a complex procedure and very expensive to boot. You are better off getting it done in Pattaya where it is reasonably priced and eminently affordable. You can also recuperate in Pattaya with its great climate, hospitable people and delicious cuisine. You will be well looked after and you can catch a flight from most major airports in Australia for Pattaya.

Before your surgery you can have a short holiday in this premier tourist destination and enjoy shopping or visiting tourist attractions. With attractive beaches, Pattaya is ideal to indulge in water sports. What’s more it boasts of great medical facilities, internationally-recognized health and safety procedures and well-qualified doctors.

Why can’t you simply book your facelift surgery on your own?

It seems very easy to book through one of the many websites that promise you cosmetic surgery at great prices. But how can you ascertain the qualifications of the doctors, the actual facilities available at the clinic and whether or not they know English? After all, where surgery is concerned, you really don’t want to take any chances with your health.

That is why it is better to book through Medical Departures. We have already checked out the clinics, the facilities, the doctors’ qualifications and expertise so that you are not shortchanged in any way. We even carry out patient interviews post surgery. We do not list any clinics that do not meet our exacting standards, so you can be safe on that score.

How much time does the surgery take and how much time for recovery post-surgery?

Rhytidectomy or facelift surgery consists of small incisions made at various places and the excess skin cut (along with extra fat or sagging muscles). The extra skin is cut away and pulled upwards. Then it is stitched back, with scars at places where they will be difficult to detect. The surgery is usually done under general anesthesia, though sometimes local anesthesia is used and the process takes one to three hours. For extensive surgery an overnight stay is best. For a mini facelift, you may go home after a few hours.

Recovery time will vary with the surgery done. Usually you can start normal activities within a day or two. Stitches will be removed after a week to 10 days. However, you can estimate around two to three weeks post surgery to feel normal. Full recovery may take up to six months. Meanwhile you will have to take care of your face and skin, use sun block and avoid make-up for as long as medically advised.

What is the cost of facelift surgery in Pattaya?

Facelift surgery is a cosmetic procedure and so not covered by medical insurance. You have to spend the money from your pocket. In Pattaya, the procedure costs AUD 4,684 upwards. In Australia you can expect to pay around AUD 15,000 for a similar surgery, so you save a great deal of money by getting the surgery done in Pattaya.
