Tummy Tuck in Thailand

The Ultimate Guide to Tummy Tuck in Thailand

Find quality-checked doctors in the Land of Smiles for your tummy tuck in Thailand. Thailand is one of the leading centers of medical tourism in the world with state-of-the-art facilities, clinical expertise and price savings that will more than make your trip here worthwhile.

If you want to remove saggy skin from your abdomen (which has been caused either through pregnancy or massive weight loss), a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is the answer to get you back in shape.

Why should I get a tummy tuck in Thailand?

Thailand is rather an old hand at Medical Tourism, and could be said to have been the instigator of the current trend in traveling overseas for medical care.

Thailand has a number of leading medical facilities that have achieved the highest international standards, and accreditation with prestigious overseers of quality at international organizations such as the Joint Commission International. In fact, there are more than two dozen Joint Commission International accredited facilities in Bangkok alone, confirming Thailand’s commitment to delivering high quality medical services.

While hospitals, clinics and other facilities are modern and equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the staff, nurses and doctors who work in them are all trained to the highest levels, including some physicians who are leading the field on a worldwide basis in the areas they specialize in.

Coupled with extraordinary customer care, it is little wonder why so many people choose to come to Thailand for their surgery.

Of course, if you want to relax a little before or after your procedure, it is well documented how stunning Thailand’s scenery is, and there are plenty of options to choose from if you want to combine your surgery with a holiday.

Your tummy tuck procedure in Thailand will cost, on average, around 60% less than at home, so even with a holiday you are still more than likely going to be saving several thousand dollars.

What’s involved in a tummy tuck procedure and how long does it take?

The length of time the procedure takes depends on whether you have a full or partial abdominoplasty. Full abdominoplasty begins with a long incision across the abdomen just above the pubic area, and a shorter incision is made around the naval so that this can be moved. In partial abdominoplasty the incision is shorter and the naval may not be moved.

The skin is separated from the abdominal wall and the muscles in the abdomen tightened. The excess skin is stretched down and removed with the remaining skin sutured back in place.

A full abdominoplasty may take up to 5 hours, depending on the extent of the surgery, but most are between 2 and 3. A partial abdominoplasty takes between 1 and 2 hours.

Most procedures take between 1 and 3 hours.

Post operatively you will need a few days bed rest and your stitches will be taken out 5-7 days later. You will need to take it easy for a while and not indulge in strenuous exercise for at least 6 weeks. Most people return to work within 1-2 weeks.
