Very bad doctors not friendly look moody all the time especially the doctor who did the scan she never smile, they couldn’t speak English just only word by word, not clear explanation, waited too long more than an hour to get it done, not good service, charged for interpretation 550 baht but the document was already in English not worth to pay for it, cheating not recommended. Go somewhere else if you don’t want to waste of your time and money.

Came here the first time for consultation after doing some google research. But google research won’t be enough because thai people don’t really use google and not all the people that came here did the reviews. So I’m going to tell you what to do. Book an online appointment (consultation or surgery) or make a call to the PPSI (Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute). They’ll tell you what to do, when to come, and approximation of the fees. Go here as scheduled. Though the PPSI personnel are able to speak English fluently the other staff here don’t. Go straight to 4th floor (PPSI floor) and do what you need to do here. If you don’t know how to get here in the first place, take Local Bus Line 1 from Bus Terminal 1 (Pink bus with number 1 on it) 15 TB/person and asked for Big C as destination, PPSI just next to it. If you want to leave after surgery I suggest you book a rental car. If not you can take Local Bus Line 1 again to Bus Terminal 1.

Came from Australia with a lot of people saying my wife was crazy to get plastic surgery in Thailand. It wasn't the first procedure she has had, as she has had others in Australia, but it was her best experience. They are seriously professional, Dr Narupon technical skills are amazing, she received perfect results and was treated like royalty. Phuket International hospital, like its staff are world class. If looking for the same facilities with a plastic surgeon with the same experience of Dr Narupon in Australia, it would have cost 10K more.

Good day to all! Clinic "Adam and Eve" left very warm memories of being in Turkey. The price for a hair transplant includes: transfer from and to the airport, 3-night hotel accommodation (breakfast included), hair transplant consultation, testing, hair transplant procedure itself, lunch at the clinic on the day of surgery, anti-inflammatory pills , a postoperative hair care kit, as well as a daily transfer to the clinic and back for dressing and shampooing. On the last day of your stay in the clinic, a guarantee certificate and a hair care certificate are issued. The clinic staff is very responsive and attentive, especially the clinic coordinator - Dilyara, who was always in touch with me 24/7. In general, they are great fellows, professionals in their field. Perhaps, of course, there are clinics in Istanbul with a higher service, but the Adam and Eve clinic is the best for a reasonable price. Всем доброго дня! Клиника "Адам и Ева" оставила очень тёплые воспоминания о пребывании в Турции. В цену на пересадку волос входит: трансфер с аэропорта и обратно в аэропорт, 3-х суточное проживание в гостинице (завтрак включён), консультация по пересадке волос, сдача анализов, сама процедура пересадки волос, обед в клинике в день операции, таблетки против воспаления, послеоперационной комплект по уходу за волосами, а также ежедневный трансфер в клинику и обратно на перевязку и мытье головы. В последний день пребывания в клинике выдают гарантийный сертификат и памятку по уходу за волосами. Персонал клиники очень отзывчивый и внимательный, особенно координатор клиники - Диляра, которая 24/7 всегда была со мной на связи. В общем они большие молодцы, профессионалы своего дела. Возможно, конечно есть клиники в Стамбуле с более высоким сервисом, но клиника "Адам и Ева" это лучшее за разумные деньги.

I would like to say a lot about this clinic and staff. If you paint everything, it can take half an hour. Everything is simple - at the highest level! Starting with the guy Maxim, who offered options for clinics, and advised to stay with this friendly driver who, although he does not speak Russian, but always tries to please) the hotel reception deserves a separate review, it’s very friendly, they will always meet and offer alternatives. All the people in the clinic, without exception, are very nice people, not just pretending that they care, but actually worry about each client, pay maximum attention, always stay in touch, lead and talk from A to Z. What can I say if the clinic’s management was looking for us tickets for a basketball game, just because they wanted to help us) thanks to Dinara (translator) for easy and pleasant communication, I can’t list all the names (I have a disgusting memory), but I can say that all people who are there deserve the deepest respect and gratitude!) Thanks to all, without exception, for you more clients. And yet, the Turks are the best) Хотелось бы много чего сказать о этой клинике и персонале. Если расписывать все, то может занять пол часа. Все просто - на высшем уровне! Начиная с парня Максима, который предложил варианты клиник, и посоветовал остановиться на этой, приветливого водителя, который хоть и не разговаривает по русски, но всегда пытается угодить) рецепшен отеля заслуживает отдельного отзыва, очень приветливые, всегда пойдут на встречу и предложат альтернативы. Все люди в клинике без исключения очень приятные люди, не просто делают вид что им не все равно, а на самом деле беспокоятся за каждого клиента, уделяют максимум внимания, остаются всегда на связи, ведут и рассказывают от а до я. Что там говорить, если руководство клиники искало нам билеты на баскетбольный матч, просто потому что хотели нам помочь) спасибо Динаре (переводчице) за легкое и приятное общение, не могу перечислить всех имён (отвратительная память у меня), но могу сказать что все люди которые там находятся заслуживают глубочайшего уважения и благодарности!) Спасибо всем без исключения, по больше вам клиентов. И ещё, турки - лучшие)

Special thanks to the girl Dilyara for excellent communication, help and support at all stages (before, during and after the operation), as well as to Dr. Chagatai. The emotions from the clinic are extremely positive, in general I recommend) Меня зовут Антон, я из Киева. Для пересадки волос выбрал клинику Адам и Ева (Adem and Havva) и не пожалел об этом не на секунду. Сервис на высшем уровне. Водитель встретил в аэропорту во время, отвез в отель и помог поселиться. Сама операция прошла тоже просто замечательно, весь персонал очень добрый и квалифицированный, все продумано до мелочей. Отдельное спасибо девушке Диляре за отличную коммуникацию, помощь и поддержку на всех этапах (до, во время и после операции), а так же доктору Чагатаю.

The patient was treated of epilepsy
star star star star star

I am very grateful to the company for giving us the opportunity to meet Dr. Russi. This is a doctor with tremendous knowledge and extensive experience in the field of epilepsy. For about 6 years, my child and I have been struggling with epileptic seizures of a very complex form. Consultations were held in Kiev and could not even make a correct diagnosis; they were treated for about 4 years in Israel. A year ago, began treatment with Dr. Russi. This is a radically different approach to examination, diagnosis and treatment. A child who suffered from attacks every night - came to life !!! We have small victories and hope for a full recovery !!! Our path is very difficult, but we do not give up !!! Я очень благодарна компании за то, что она предоставила нам возможность познакомиться с доктором Русси. Это доктор с колоссальными знаниями и большим опытом в области эпилепсии. Около 6 лет мы с ребенком боремся с эпилептическими приступами очень сложной формы. В киеве собирали консилиумы и даже не могли поставить правильный диагноз, лечились около 4 лет в Израиле. Год назад начали лечение у доктора Русси. Это кардинально другой подход к обследованию, диагностике и лечению. Ребенок, который мучился от приступов каждую ночь - ожил!!! У нас есть маленькие победы и надежда на полное выздоровление!!! Наш путь очень трудный, но мы не сдаёмся!!!

Skype consultation went well. Within an hour I received answers to all questions, they certainly differ from those that we receive at home, but prof. Ferrand Montserrat is positive, generally in a good mood after consultation. They organized everything well, before the consultation they called us and helped set up Skype. Skype консультация прошла хорошо. На протяжении часа получил ответы на все вопросы, они конечно отличаются от тех, которые получаем дома, но проф. Ферран Монсеррат позитивный, в целом хорошее настроение после консультации. Организовали все хорошо, перед консультацией нам позвонили, помогли настроить Скайп.

The patient was treated of epilepsy
star star star star star

I am very glad to have been given such an opportunity to be treated abroad, namely in the Tekhnon Clinic. In Ukraine, I was diagnosed with epilepsy, which shocked me, but after seven days of diagnosis I was excluded. Absolutely nothing indicated epilepsy. I especially liked the very friendly staff, although we spoke different languages. I was constantly under the care of not only the sisters, only we pressed the red button, the nurse immediately ran over to us and provided the necessary help. Doctor Antonio Russi, wonderful. He was looking at the last detail. Acted cautiously and orderly. I did not regret spending a great deal of money to be treated abroad at the Tecnon Clinic. In Ukraine, I received no help. And now I'm just back and I'm already on the mend. Thank you to all your staff. Дуже рада, що отримала таку можливість лікуватися за кордоном, а саме в клініці Текнон. В Україні мені поставили діагноз епілепсія, це мене шокувало, проте після семи днів діагностики мені її виключили. Абсолютно нічого не вказувало на епілепсію. Особливо мені сподобалось те, що дуже вічливий персонал, хоть і говорили мы різними мовами. Я постійно була під наглядом не лише сестри, тільки ми нажмемо червону кнопку до нас відразу збігала медсестра і надавала необхідну допомогу. Лікар Антоніо Руссі, чудовий. Придивлявся до останньої деталі. Діяв обережно і впорядковано. Я не пошкодувала, що витратила великі кошти, щоб лікуватися за кордоном саме в клініці Текнон. На Україні ніякої допомоги я не отримала. А зараз я тільки повернулася і вже іду на поправку. Дякую всьому вашому персоналу.

I really liked the clinic. Everything is top notch, comfortable rooms, helpful staff. The only thing is that after the eyelid surgery, edema appeared that did not go away for a long time. But a month later, everything fell into place, so I am very pleased with the clinic. Клиника очень понравилась. Все на высшем уровне, удобные палаты, отзывчивый персонал. Единственное, что после операции по подтяжке век появился отек, который долго не сходил. Но спустя месяц все встало на свои места, так что клиникой я очень довольна.

Overall experience was good, nice staff, very good after care. They could do with a renovation of their facilities. I would have liked to have spoken to someone before booking the operation, instead I was just exhanging emails with the receptionist.

Questions and answers

What is a body lift?

Body lifting or circumferential body lifting is a plastic surgery performed to remove sagging flesh or loose skin and restore the aesthetic appearance of the different body zones (abdomen, waist, buttocks).

During the body lifting complex, plastic surgeons tighten the abdomen, eliminate abdominal separation (diastasis recti), perform thigh and lower back liposuction, carry out buttock lift and enlargement (with patient’s own tissues or implants).

What are the indications for body lift?

Both women and men are good candidates for body lifting if they have:

  • sagging skin after significant weight loss
  • reduced elasticity of abdomen muscles
  • flabby buttocks 
  • drooping skin of the abdomen and buttocks.
  • inelastic skin of the lower back and chest.

What are the contraindications?

Like any other plastic surgery, a body lift has some contraindications:

  • blood clotting problems
  • exacerbation of chronic diseases
  • heart failure
  • uncompensated type II diabetes
  • mental health disorders
  • obesity with a BMI of 35 and higher
  • autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis)
  • immunodeficiency
  • smoking. 

What are the types of body lifting in Thailand?

Body lift is a complex of the cosmetic procedures aimed at correcting one or several body areas (breast, waist, buttocks, etc.). According to the body zone need to be corrected, body plastic surgery in Thailand includes such types of lifting procedures as:

The operations may be combined and performed during the same process. In some cases, plastic surgeons carry out body lift in tandem with liposuction to remove not only excess skin but also excess fat simultaneously.

What is preparation for the surgery?

Body lifting in Thailand is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery requires the patient to get the necessary medical tests and examinations. Among them are:

  • complete blood count
  • coagulogram (blood clotting test)
  • immunoglobulins blood test 
  • biochemical profile
  • Rh factor blood test
  • urinalysis
  • electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • lower limbs venous ultrasonography
  • the chest X-ray
  • consultation with a therapist
  • consultation with a plastic surgeon.

What is the body lifting process?

Consultation with your plastic surgeon is required before body lifting. During the consultation, a plastic surgeon will evaluate your body shape, help you understand what result you can expect, take into account your preferences, and develop a complete surgery plan.

Body lift in Thailand is a minimally invasive surgery and usually is performed by several steps:

  1. A plastic surgeon marks certain body zones that need to be corrected and review the surgery plan again to make sure you get the desired result after the procedure. 
  2. Body lifting is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the number of areas, the operation takes 4-6 hours
  3. A surgeon makes the incisions and separates the skin and the fat layer from the underlying tissues. 
  4. A plastic surgeon closes the incisions.

How does the body lift process change depending on the body area?

Performing abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), a cosmetic specialist removes excess skin and subcutaneous fat of the abdomen tightening muscles in the abdominal wall. To avoid possible complications and reduce fluid accumulation, a plastic surgeon measures the drainage. 

Excess skin in the thigh region (thigh lift) is removed by a longitudinal incision on the inner thigh or a horizontal incision on the outer thigh. The cuts are quite long, but they are usually not visible under clothing. During the operation, a surgeon can also perform a butt lift to correct the shape of the buttocks. 

Brachioplasty or arm lift is carried out to eliminate sagging skin and excess adipose tissue from the upper inner surface of the shoulder. Usually, the incision goes from the armpit to the elbow. If the patient has fat accumulation in the shoulder area without excess skin, plastic surgeons perform lipo to suck out excess fat.

How long is the recovery period after body lifting in Thailand?

Patients usually spend a night or two in the hospital after a body lift in Thailand. The next day they start walking. To reduce swelling and discomfort, specialists recommend making compresses with cold water or ice. Drainage is removed a few days after the surgery.

A few days after the procedure, patients should stay at home. Taking a shower is possible only on the third day after body lifting in Thailand. Physical activity is permitted for 6-8 weeks after the surgery. 

The terms of the rehabilitation period are different depending on the type of operation. After all body lift types, it is necessary to wear a compression garment for at least 4 weeks. 

The surgery is minimally invasive and does not cause severe pain. During the first days after the procedure, the patient may feel discomfort and tension. To eliminate this feeling, doctors prescribe postoperative treatment consisting mainly of painkillers and antibiotics.

During the postoperative period, the patient should remain under the supervision of a doctor. Follow-up examinations are necessary not only after the operation but also in the long term (one month, six months, and a year after the operation).

What are the body lift risks?

As any other plastic surgery, body lifting can lead to some complications. The most common among them are:

  • infection
  • seroma (fluid accumulation under the skin)
  • hematoma (bleeding)
  • scar contracture
  • implant displacement
  • blood clots
  • deep vein thrombosis
  • swelling
  • persistent pain.

To avoid complications after the body lift surgery, you must choose a highly-qualified plastic surgeon, pass medical tests and examinations, and accurately follow all the doctor’s recommendations.

What is the level of medicine in Thailand?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Thai government. The Thai authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 25 billion baht for healthcare annually.

As a result, 36,673 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. 64 centers in the Kingdom have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.

Why is Thailand trendy for medical tourism?

The Kingdom of Thailand is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Japan, China, Myanmar and the Middle Eastern countries prefer treatment in Thailand to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 2.5 mln international patients travel to Thailand annually. So Thailand is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Thailand is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 75% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel service is provided here?

In the Kingdom of Thailand, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Thai hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

When is the best time to travel to Thailand?

The main advantage of Thai resorts is the long beach season. On the east coast and west coast the climate features are different, so take it into account when planning the trip. The best time to travel is during the cool and dry season between November and early April. A large influx of tourists is in March-May, when the air temperature is +30°C.
