All surgeons require you to complete a surgical assessment before you are approved to make a booking. To have the surgeon review your assessment and give you a recommendation, you will need to fill in theRegistration Form . This is a simple and easy online form, but it does require you to have photos of your body ready to upload for the surgeon to view.

Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute (PPSI) will also implement the new Guidelines for Pre-Operative Tests on March 1st, 2016. All clients who have a confirmed booking under the “old” price list and terms will not be required to follow the new pre-operative guidelines, however clients with pre-existing conditions or high-risk for surgery may be asked to undergo additional pre-surgery test, as advised by their surgeon and coordinator.

The biggest price increase are with Breast Lifts, Tummy Tucks, Liposuction, and Rhinoplasty. If your are even slightly considering having any of those surgeries in 2016 I urge you to book in before 1st March as the difference can be anything from $1000++

A Breast Implant exclusive package with Meditravel is $5400; the package includes return airfares, eight nights hotel, transfers, Breakfast daily and Breast Augmentation surgery. The option is now available for an additional $500 to stay in Australia and have the surgery. Yes, you do get the bonus of a holiday with the Thailand package, however for time poor ladies eight days from home logistically can become an issue. These days there are a lot of young mothers who choose to have Breast Implants but find leaving children for eight days an issue. These are the clients Meditravel are seeing researching into travelling to Thailand for surgery based on the price and then choosing to stay in Australia.

It is great to see some of the top Breast implant Australian Plastic Surgeon’s being able to offer $5900 Breast Implants encouraging clients to remain in Australia for surgery rather than travel.

8 Reasons to have cosmetic surgery done in Phuket

Phuket Surgery

Wish to have a cosmetic surgery in Phuket but confused whether to go ahead with it or not? If so, then this article is for you. Cosmetic surgery packages in Thailand offer a number of benefits to its customers when compared to their Australian counterparts – that is why more and more Australians are heading off to Thailand to get their surgery done.

Benefits of having a Cosmetic Surgery in Phuket

Cost: The main advantage of having a cosmetic surgery in Phuket or any other city in Thailand is, of course, the cost. Whether it be the procedure, you wish to have, whether it be breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck or any other. You can be sure that Phuket will offer you cheaper deals and save you lots of money. For example, if you want to have a breast implant in Australia, then you may have to shell out anywhere between $8,000-$12,000 for the procedure. Comparatively, the cost of breast implant in Phuket is almost halved at around $3,000-$4,000. As such, it makes complete sense for any value-oriented customer to opt for cosmetic surgery in Thailand.

Quality Surgery: One might believe that the reason for cosmetic surgeries being cheaper in Thailand is because the quality of plastic surgeons is inferior in comparison to Australia. That statement is anything but true. All the main internationally acclaimed hospitals in Thailand offer you some of the best plastic surgeons you can get. So how come, they can provide cheap cosmetic surgery? The simple answer is that Thailand has more reasonable wage rate, whether it is the wages of the surgeons, nurses or other caretakers. The risk of surgery in Thailand is as same as the risk one might take in Australia. If you research your medical facility well, then Phuket should be a no-nonsense choice for your cosmetic surgery.

Convenience: The best hospitals in Phuket offer you facilities that match or even rival those offered by 5-star hotels. The rooms are spacious, hygienic with all modern amenities like television, 24 hour Wi-Fi and more. Compared to Australia, you not only get the best quality plastic surgeons for your procedure at a cheaper cost, but you also get to be treated in a more luxurious environment. Who can say no to that?

Forced Recovery and Relaxation: When you visit Phuket for your cosmetic surgery, you are not only going for the procedure. You can relax on the sandy beaches of Phuket while recuperating from your operation. In effect, you are taking a holiday together with getting your surgery done. And all this at a price that is lower than the cost of the surgery alone in Australia.

24 hour Care: You are not required to stay at the hospital for after-care. You can go back to your resort, and you still will have 24-hour medical care available to you. So, in case any complications do arise, you can be sure that help is near.

Surgery Guarantee: Though only offered by a few hospitals in Phuket, a surgery guarantee necessarily means that the hospital will compensate you in case any complications arise as a result of the operation. It is advisable that you ask your preferred hospital whether they offer surgery guarantee.

Know Price First: In some cases like dental surgery, the price of the procedure may not be disclosed you if you were to undergo the procedure in Australia. You will only know the final bill once the treatment has been completed. In contrast, all hospitals and dental clinics in Thailand will tell you precisely how much each procedure will cost.

Free Follow Ups: Thailand hospitals offer all your follow-ups free, which essentially allows you to consult your physician through the internet/other means post the cosmetic surgery. This way, you will not have to spend additional money on consultations.

Precautions to take when planning for plastic surgery in Thailand


 

Once you are interested in taking a surgery holiday in Phuket or any other city in Thailand, you will have to keep a few things in mind so as to make sure that you avoid any possible risk.

  • First of all, research your preferred hospital very well and ensure that your plastic surgeon is well qualified for the job..
  • Do not go into a surgery having extremely high expectations, only for you to be disappointed later on and cause problems. Talk to your surgeon honestly and let him guide you to what you wish to achieve.
  • Arrive at your location a couple of days before the surgery so that you acclimatize to your surroundings. Also, stay at the hospital a few days after surgery so that you have instant help available in case of any complications.
