Why Thailand Plastic Surgery Costs Less

Apr 22, 2022 | 2. Blog

The truth before you travel

When deciding to go under the knife it’s important to consider all the factors:

  • Cost
  • Expertise
  • Care in recovery
  • Results 

No matter what your procedure, you need to be sure you’re in the best hands possible but, in Australia, those hands come at quite a cost.

Factors that drive up Plastic Surgery costs in Australia

Plastic Surgery comes at a huge cost to your time and pocket in Australia. Our aging population means that hospitals are crowded, and elective surgery wait lists are long. Post-operative care is short, so it’s not long before you’re out on your own, plus with private health premiums being at an all-time high, it’s hard for many people to afford hospital fees, let alone the added price of an expert surgeon. 

So, should you just give up? At CosMediTour, we say no!

Thailand Plastic Surgery

CosMediTour has been Australasia’s most trusted Plastic Surgery Group for the last 12 years. We’ve helped over 14,000 clients gain exceptional results from Thailand’s best plastic surgeons, and we’ve done it all for a fraction of the cost. If that seems too good to be true, it’s not. Read on and we’ll let you in on our secret. 

The World’s #1

Thailand is a famed technology hub and, when it comes to medical equipment and treatment techniques, they’re up there with the world’s best too. Thai hospitals have surgical set-ups comparable to advanced Australian hospitals, yet their fees are up to 40% less. 

Why? Medical Tourism is important to Thailand’s economy. By providing high-quality surgeries for a lower cost, the government can ensure tourism dollars from countries like Australia, Canada and America. This influx of funds, plus the overall lower cost of living and more favourable dollar exchange rate mean lower hospital and surgeon fees for you. 

Uncompromised quality

To deliver the best, we work with the best. All our Thailand Plastic Surgeons are highly trained experts and we’re very careful to only work with Plastic Surgeons, not Cosmetic Surgeons. 

What’s the difference, you ask? Well, actually quite a lot. 

While plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are often used as interchangeable terms, there’s a huge difference between the two. Any doctor can call themselves a Cosmetic Surgeon. A Plastic Surgeon must undergo 6 years of extensive, highly regulated training before becoming a qualified Plastic and Reconstructive Specialist (a Plastic Surgeon). 

Our Thailand Plastic Surgeons are monitored by international accrediting bodies and must maintain a range of certifications to practice in Thailand’s leading hospitals—the world class hospitals we partner with. 

Premium care without the price tag

Thailand is home to numerous private hospitals. The number of facilities in the country mean that hospital wait lists are almost non-existent and patients are free to stay until they’re completely healed.

Thai hospital rooms are set up like luxury hotel suites. Patients are treated like valued guests and, with a CosMediTour Plastic Surgery package, have a dedicated Client Liaison Support Team on the ground to support them through every step of the pre and post-surgery process

Following hospital, the life of luxury is continued, with an unbeatable hotel stay. Think days by the pool, views over breathtaking beaches and glittering temples to explore while you recuperate. CosMediTour packages are all-inclusive with no agency fees or hidden costs, so you really do get the best for so much less.
