Jul 15, 2022 | Education, News

Bangkok or Phuket? 

Making the decision to get plastic surgery is big enough, let alone when there’s international travel thrown in the mix. Thailand has long been regarded as a leader in medical tourism.

Not only are the hospitals state-of-the-art and the standards of care next level, but your recovery can take place in some of the most idyllic locations on earth. All CosMediTour Thailand Plastic Surgery procedures include recovery in a luxury 5-star resort. Think spacious rooms, outstanding facilities and the warmest of Thai hospitality—exactly what you need as you welcome the beauty of self-confidence.

So, when there are expert Plastic Surgeons in both Bangkok and Phuket, and stunning resorts on every block, how do you decide where to go?

That’s where this blog can help!

Beautiful Bustling Bangkok

Thailand’s largest city is one you won’t quickly forget. Bangkok is the country’s city that never sleeps—think vibrant colours and bustling streets by day, and all that again with the addition of dazzling city lights by night. Whether you’re a foodie, a tech-head, you like high-end fashion, art, or you just want to marvel at some of the world’s most lavish temples before hunting for a bargain in a day or night market, there’s something in Bangkok waiting for you.

The city is known for its rich history, nightlife, sky bars with sprawling views, 5-star hotels, and next-level hospitality. With the spectacular Grand Palace located right in the heart of the city, it’s no wonder there’s an essence of royalty everywhere you turn—after having your procedure completed in a Bangkok hospital, you’ll certainly know the true meaning of ‘the royal treatment’.

Bangkok Medical Tourism

Bangkok is one of the most popular cities in the world. In fact, upwards of 20 million people visit every year. In recent years, medical tourism has been among the main reasons people flock to this beautiful, bustling metropolis. Bangkok Plastic Surgery is conducted in world-renowned private hospitals, famed for their cutting-edge technologies and superior standards of patient care. 

Following your CosMediTour Bangkok surgery, our on-the-ground Client Liaison team will assist you with arrangements to your 5-star recovery hotel. Await your stunning results in a spacious and well-appointed room, designed for maximum comfort and ultimate relaxation. Keen to learn more?

Paradise in Phuket

If city lights aren’t quite your thing, trade the bustle and brilliance of Bangkok for tranquil views of Phuket’s captivating beaches. Located in southern Thailand, Phuket is the country’s biggest island. Famed for the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea; pristine white sands; and lush, tropical mountain ranges that offer the perfect vantage point for breathtaking sunsets, Phuket is nothing short of paradise. 

Set yourself up poolside, or on a sun lounge by the beach to enjoy some first-rate R&R at one of our stunning Phuket resorts. Think sweeping views, onsite restaurants, luxurious day spas, 24-hour service and so much more—these resorts are the ideal place to recover from your Phuket Plastic Surgery, and they’re also a stone’s throw away from the island’s most iconic sites.  

Phuket has a large Chinese influence so, in addition to marvelling at magnificent Thai temples (including Wat Chalong) and sampling iconic and tantalising street food, you’ll be able to spot Chinese shrines, restaurants, and unique Sino-Portuguese (Chinese Baroque) architecture as you make your way through Old Phuket Town. Browse the markets, enjoy a wildlife experience (tigers and elephants), or catch a performance at Phuket Fantasea – the world’s first Thai culture theme park.

Medical Tourism in Phuket

Phuket is a place where you can do as little or as much as you want. It has history, culture, nightlife and more. It’s also home to some of the world’s most renowned private hospitals. Like in Bangkok, our partner hospitals in Phuket boast state-of-the-art technologies and superior standards of patient care. Rather than cold hospital wards, think of something more resembling a well-appointed hotel room—patient comfort, health and safety are all equally regarded, and the ultra-modern operating theatres will fill you with confidence as you prepare for your procedure.
