In our never ending quest for physical perfection, the kinds of cosmetic procedures that were once only favoured by the rich and famous are now being sought by all. Nose job, boob lifts, tummy tucks, facelifts, they are all now terms we are familiar with, and the majority of us will know at least one person who has had some kind of procedure done .
Inevitably, as the popularity for these procedures scored, so did the costs. The saying goes that as one door closes another one opens, and in this case as the cost of surgery in the western countries meant that a large debt was inevitable, the door to the East opened and Thailand has become a cosmetic surgery hotspot for those seeking to regain their youth or just feel better about themselves.
Clinics have sprung up in all the major cities of Thailand, with qualified professionals at the helm. As with everything else in Thailand, the cost of the procedures there, are a world apart. For example, in the US you are looking at nearly $8000 for a full tummy tuck, at Clinics in Bangkok and Phuket they are around $3000, and this includes accommodation.
With cheap flights also available, and the fact that you are going to be recuperating in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, it is no wonder that more and more foreigners are combining a trip to Thailand with a cosmetic procedure. There are some things that a covering of make-up won’t hide, and whilst some may call it vanity, why shouldn’t we do what we can to preserve our looks for as long as possible?
There are those who, for no apparent reason, age quicker than others. For a woman in her 40’s to look 10 years older is both disparaging and shatters her self-confidence. By taking a trip to Thailand and paying little more than you would for an ordinary holiday, you can erase those extra years and more.
If you are seriously considering cosmetic surgery but prices are way beyond your means, check out the clinics in Thailand. Input the phrase cosmetic surgery Thailand into a search engine to do your research, and make a few none obligatory enquiries to see what packages are available for the kind of surgery you require. Surgery is daunting enough without feeling you have also been mugged in the process.
