- Pain medication needed after the procedure
- Post-op appointments

As with any international trip it’s important to factor in the cost of travel and accommodation in the country of choice. Thailand has very affordable hotels and offers incredible luxury at a moderate prices.
Let’s add the cost of 7 nights mid range hotel accommodation and a variety of airfares and see what difference this makes to the value of surgery in Thailand
New York to Bangkok approx $700.00
London to Bangkok approx £450.00 ($ 640.00)
Hotel accommodation for 7 nights approx $350.00 (4 * hotel)
The total cost would now stand at approx $4,250. This is still less expensive than the procedure alone in the USA and remember you will benefit from the experience and expertise of Thailand’s best surgeons and enjoy a holiday in this beautiful country.
There are much cheaper hotels of course, take a look at a travel website like Agoda or Trivago to give you some idea of the great deals available.
Flights vary depending on your country of departure and the time of year you choose to travel.
The best weather in Thailand is between November and March.
An important factor that many people forget is that cost alone should not be the only factor to consider. Thailand surgeons have a great deal of experience and have developed pioneering techniques as Thailand has grown into the prime cosmetic surgery destination it is today. Quality, Professionalism and Experience are just as vital as cost.
