Why Consider Facial Rejuvenation Treatment in Thailand?

Thailand is well-known for its expertise in the field of cosmetic surgery. Millions of people have rejuvenated their faces here, returning home with a more youthful look.

Cost is the primary motivation that most people look toward Thailand for their surgery, but this is superseded when they see and experience the quality of care on offer. A medical tourism hub, Thailand invested heavily in luring foreign patients to one of Bangkok’s newly-equipped state-of-the-art hospitals in the 1990s. It has been so successful that excellent facilities are available across the country – more than 40 are accredited with the Joint Commission International, one of the most prestigious organizations monitoring quality and safety standards in health institutions across the world.

Patients coming to Thailand can take their pick of the outstanding services on offer the length and breadth of the country, and this includes holiday destinations such as Phuket and Chiang Mai, as well as Bangkok.

It is not only the modern clinics and hospitals that brings patients here; the medical expertise is outstanding, and so too is the Thai’s legendary customer service. Hospital rooms are decked out like boutique hotels with all mod cons – and with room for your partner to stay too. It is quite another world from what many Westerners experience at home.

Why Should I Book with Medical Departures?

Just like anywhere else in the world, as well as the many fantastic hospitals and clinics, there are also those that don’t have such a good reputation. Therefore, it's important to do some research before heading to Thailand - and this is where medical Departures can help.

Booking through our site gives you that much-needed peace-of-mind when going abroad for treatment. All of the doctors and clinics we have partnered with have been fully background checked; we look at legal and criminal records, verify qualifications, confirm professional memberships and get hold of real patient reviews. These are published on our website, along with high definition photos so you can get a good idea of the kind of services you are likely to receive at a given clinic.

How Long Does Facial Rejuvenation Treatment Take and What Is Involved?

Facial rejuvenation is very much an individual treatment. There are multiple combinations and treatments so no two are necessarily the same. Before you embark on your treatment, you will have a thorough consultation with your surgeon to decide what surgical and non-surgical treatments will help you to reach your goals. It is likely you will have to return several times for different stages of the treatment plan.

For example, your treatment may include:

  • Botox
  • Other types of dermal fillers
  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Eyelid rejuvenation
  • Lip augmentation
  • A full or partial facelift

Note: Any surgery will usually be performed first, and you may have to wait for several months’ to let your body heal before any non-surgical enhancements can begin.

What Is the Recovery Time for Facial Rejuvenation?

As a broad indication, following any surgery, you will be in discomfort for several days after and swelling and bruising are likely for a couple of weeks. You will be advised to be patient, avoiding anything that is too strenuous for around six weeks – this includes lifting anything heavy and vigorous exercise.

After six months your face should be healed and you will be able to return to Thailand for further enhancements. The downtime for non-surgical treatments is much less and recovery can be a matter of hours to a week or so.

What Is the Cost of Facial Rejuvenation in Thailand Compared to Australia and New Zealand?

The combination of treatments will affect the price, but, if a full facelift was included, along with some non-surgical treatments, then the facial rejuvenation in Thailand could cost upwards of AUD $13,0000 (US $9,000; CAD $12,000; GBP £6,000; Euros 8,000).

This is compared to AUD $26,000 (US $18,000; CAD $24,000; GBP £12,000; Euros 16,000) in Australia.

These prices are rough estimates. Take a look at more up-to-date prices at these top facilities across Thailand that offer facial rejuvenation procedures and packages:
