Thailand is now the world’s No.1 destination for Medical Tourism, with over 2.4 million foreign medical tourists last year. Thailand is also home to some of the finest Hospitals in the world, which resemble 5 Star Luxury Hotels and Resorts. Many of these Hospitals and Clinics, have made, and continue to make substantial investments in equipment, technology, human resources, and are renowned for not only the highest medical standards, but also exceptional patient service.
Bangkok is the capital of the Kingdom of Thailand, and is one of the most popular cities for tourism in the world – with over 15 million foreign visitors in 2013, passing London and Paris to take top position. Phuket is the largest island and the most popular Resort Holiday Destination in Thailand, with hundreds of thousands of Aussies and Kiwis taking to its beaches, bars and shopping.
2.4 million people travelled to Thailand for medical procedures last year.

CosMediTour is an official Agency in Australia for Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital, which has long been acknowledged as one of Bangkok’s premier healthcare facilities. We are joint exclusive Agency in Australia and the No. 1 Agency in the world for cosmetic plastic surgery at Bangpakok9 International Hospital, part of the Bangkok Hospital Group – one of Thailand’s largest healthcare providers.
In Phuket, Bangkok-Phuket Institute of Cosmetic Surgery (BPICS) and Phuket International Hospital’s Phuket International Aesthetic Center (PIAC) have joined forces to become one as the "Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute (PPIS)" right at a brand-new location.
Between our International Hospitals and their Aesthetic Centres, we work with over 30 Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons in Bangkok and Phuket - all of whom are Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. As such, all of these Surgeons can perform a wide range of surgical procedures - ranging from simple Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift) procedures, through to complex ‘Mummy Makeover’ surgeries on individuals with Breast Surgery, Tummy Tucks and Thigh Lifts.
For anyone who hasn’t travelled to Thailand before and are indecisive as to which surgery location to choose from, we have listed some key differences between the two destinations, as well as some great activities you can do while you’re there to help you make your decision. In comparison to locations in Australia, deciding between Phuket and Bangkok would be like choosing between the Whitsundays or Sydney. Don't know which to choose? Read Our Blog
At CosMediTour, we enjoy strong partnerships with a selection of exceptional Hotels and Resorts in Thailand.
In Bangkok, AETAS Bangkok, AETAS Residence and AETAS Lumpini are CosMediTour’s primary patient accommodation, where most Clients recuperate post-surgery. All CosMediTour Medical and Dental Clients, are greeted as extra special guests in each of these premises – with many bonus inclusions, as well as room upgrades for longer stays. The staff are aware that most CosMediTour guests are recovering from cosmetic surgery – so don’t be surprised if Hotel staff insist on carrying your shopping bags when you return from shopping!

The secluded beach location of Amari Phuket, offers with panoramic views over Patong Bay.
