I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.

My experience with bookimad was great; the thing that I appreciate is the high sense of humanity of the staff, especially Dr Farruk Ahmed. He answer all my questions in time, he read my poor English and make me feel comfortable, such thing is so important for someone that suffer. I know they do their best to help. Thank you Dr.

Bumrungrad International Hospital

Well, bit over priced and certainly over rated. Initial correspondence, airport pick up all were great extra services. Language can be an issue! After registration, went to see an internal medicine specialist, the delay to see wasn't explained well. Some tests that will be avoided in public funded hospitals because doctors are experienced enough to rule out a few tests as unnecessary, here they will push you to do because it works towards achieving the financial target. Sent medical records by email from past and one specialist was clear about saying no time to look at so many reports, bring print outs of important ones. Not a bad place to come for second opinion, especially when your own GP feels they have reached dead end!! Quite prompt in organizing appointments etc. Ideal, if you are on a holiday and get check ups done. Make sure the prescribed medicines are funded in your home country!! Pretty well managed.

Bumrungrad International Hospital

I've only had good experiences here. It's pricey but you can make actual appointments, for which you are generally seen on time, and the checkout process is efficient. The staff are well-trained and the bureaucratic process is well-refined. Of course, the doctors are top notch. Value added: it's a very nice hospital in aesthetic terms.

Sikarin Hospital

Bad service, waiting time over 2 hours for the doctor even though I called the day before. I told the staff many times I had to be back at work but there was no regard for my request. I also had to ask this girl that was following me around to be a bit more discreet, but it was just a waste of time. I know in Thailand privacy doesn’t mean much but having me walk around with urine cup outside where everyone was sitting made me not feel good about myself.

I highly recommend this hospital and very much satisfied with the services. From giving us transportation facilities to assisting us in every way possible. The doctors and assistants took care of our every concern and was very much polite in their behaviour. Specially thanks to Mr. Ernie Roy Valencia for taking such care of us.

Sarinya Clinic

They honestly do have a solution for all "issues" I had. Moles removal, tattoo removal, spider veins, etc. The service is great. The prices are good as well. A state-of-the-art clinic does come with a certain price but they are competitive compare to other clinics.

Lulu Lundt Jan 31, 2020
Sarinya Clinic

This clinic is equipped with the latest laser technology, everyone speaks very good English and is really friendly. After a detailed consultation and analysis of my skin, the doctor treated my acne scars and rosacea with the Picosure Laser. The results after only two treatments are impressive. Within a very short time, Sarinya Clinic has achieved results which German doctors have not been able to accomplish for years. I am super happy. 5 well deserved stars!

Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute

I had a facelift at PPSI Phuket 14 months ago.Since then I've noticed droopy jowls and I have decided to visit again for a follow up and hopefully revision. I travel next week.But correspondence with the doctor suggests he may not do anything because it may not be safe to do so. Why, after 14 months remains unclear. Additionally, I have seuters protruding through the skin and only the surgeon can realistically fix that problem. My second visit will be expensive, I will also pay for the consult and have to make my own way to the hospital from Sydney. The hospital does not provide assistance. Correspondence with the hospital, language barriers at the hospital last year and complications following surgery have left me feeling exhausted. The distance between patient and doctor is the real nightmare here and for that reason I'd seriously suggest if you're thinking of cosmetic surgery reconsider and go local.

I researched the clinics in Pattaya for spider veins this clinic said $48 so approximately 1000 baht but when i got to the clinic and filled out the paperwork and the receptionist took some photos of 5-6 spots on my legs she rang someone who said I may need 2 treatments the first being 18000 baht and the second being 15000baht that was after some bargaining and trying to understand each other as I'm from Australia i was totally disappointed and did not go ahead with it

The Sib Clinic

BOTCHED LIPOSUCTION - PLEASE READ Urban Beauty sent me here 10 months ago. Here is my horrifying story with terrible results. I made an appointment through Line and was brought to a clinic called the SIB Clinic. I consulted with Dr. Darin for upper and lower liposuction using the Bodytite machine. Mind you, I am not overweight, 5 foot 6 and 57 kg. I’ve always had an apple body and any fat I have sits in my stomach. I booked by surgery date and opted to do it under twilight sedation because I’ve had terrible experiences under general anesthesia. Before the surgery, I had to go to a hospital and get a bunch of tests done, AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) and the TB test is for patients because they have a breathing tube under general anesthesia. Even though I was doing the twilight sedation, I still had to go through with the TB test and pay for it! How does that make any sense? On surgery day, Dr. Darin started 2 hours later than scheduled. She didn’t apologize, didn’t say much at all and has a very quiet, non-personable demeanor. She marked my stomach up and I laid in the operating room and had an IV. All of sudden, I felt an intense burning sensation in my veins, and as the sedation increased into my veins, so did the excruciating pain. I started panicking and yelling for help and EVERYONE IN THE OPERATING ROOM IGNORED ME. I suddenly fell asleep. How could I have fallen asleep under twilight sedation? I went from being more aware than ever, thinking I was ready to die, to passed out with no recollection of the surgery. I woke up feeling very disoriented and I remember having to pee in a cup on the operating bed while I recovered. Dr. Darin didn’t even send me home in a compression garment. My stomach was wrapped in an elastic band and metal clips (those bandages you use when you sprain an ankle). I was in a ton of pain and did not sleep because the bandages scrunched up around my abdomen. I went back the next day to get my compression garment. They had a catalogue and didn’t have the one I tought provided the best support. I asked Dr. Darin why this wasn’t arranged before my surgery and why I didn’t get sent home in a compression garment and she said “in case I bled or there were fluids coming out of the wounds” which makes no sense, the 3mm wounds that were stitched shut had thick gauzes taped over them and there was no fluid on the bandaids. The recovery was ok, I was off pain medication at day 3 post op, and I just wore my compression garment 24/7. My stomach was very lumpy and tight and I did RF massages 3 times a week for the first 2 months to try to knead out the lumpiness. As the lumps and tightness went away, I started losing hope that I’d have nice results. I have white stitch scars over my scars because my skin grew over my stitches before they were taken out. Dr. Darin took out an uneven amount of fat in my lower abdomen and barely touched my upper abdomen (and I paid for my upper abdomen to be done) and now my upper abdomen folds over my lower abdomen making it impossible to see my belly button. Now my belly button gathers dry scabs and I need to clean it all the time with a Q-tip. The psychological damage this surgery has done on me is indescribable. I wanted to wait a full year to give Dr. Darin a fair and honest review but 10 months out, I can’t let anyone suffer the way I am now. There is no way I’d ever wear a bikini or even be intimate with someone looking the way I do. It is the biggest burden and insecurity I have and I can’t believe Dr. Darin could create such a careless, rushed result. I know that if she put my before and after photos on her website, no one would book a surgery with her. My message to Urban Beauty, please remove the SIB Clinic from your brokerage. Dr. Darin ruined my body and all of my confidence. I would not go to her again even if she offered a free revision. Look at my photos, is this what you'd envision your liposuction results to look like?

Questions and answers

What is facelift?

Facelift is a cosmetic surgery that allows giving a face a more youthful appearance. During a facelift, excessive skin is removed, and then a doctor forms a “youthful” contour of the face or neck. As a result, the skin becomes smooth, young, and without wrinkles.

Facelift can be performed both in a surgical and a non-surgical way.

What are the indications for facelift surgery?

Facelift surgery is recommended for people aged 40-60. Rarely, but it can be also performed for patients aged over 70. Indications for a facelift procedure may be the following:

  • double chin
  • droopy eyelids
  • deep facial wrinkles
  • drooping eyes corners
  • vertical wrinkles on the cheeks
  • facial soft tissue ptosis
  • excessive fat and loose skin on the neck.

If you are not satisfied with your appearance and want to do facelift surgery, consult with a doctor to decide whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. 

What are contraindications for facelift?

Modern facelift techniques are safe and do not have many contraindications. However, in the case when a surgical facelift is performed, a procedure is not recommended for people with:

  • neoplasms (especially, malignant ones)
  • bleeding disorder
  • severe diseases of the internal organs
  • some disorders of the nervous system
  • severe hypertonia
  • epilepsy.

To the relative contraindications may be included the following conditions:

  • pregnancy
  • lactation
  • infections
  • inflammatory processes
  • skin diseases.

If you have any of these conditions or other health disorders, inform your doctor to discuss the possibility of facelift surgery in your case.

What is a preoperative preparation for facelift in Thailand?

Preoperative preparation for facelift surgery in Thailand can differ depending on the type of procedure. Fora  surgical operation, it consists of the following steps:

  1. A doctor surveys a patient; the future result is discussed.
  2. Analysis (blood and urine tests, ECG, examinations for blood clotting, etc.). 
  3. A patient needs to give up smoking, drinking alcohol, taking some pills for 2 weeks before surgery.
  4. 8 hours before a procedure, a patient does not eat and drink.

What is a facelift process?

The facelift process depends on the type of the procedure. This an outpatient operation, so admission is not required. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia or sedation. The process takes 2-5 hours.

First of all, an anesthesiologist applies a chosen type of anesthesia. Then, a plastic surgeon makes an incision in front of the ear, extending it to the hairline. If the reduction of the chin is planned, a doctor also makes an incision under it.

When all incisions have been made, a plastic surgeon separates the skin from other tissues. Then, skin is lifted with special instruments, and its excess is removed.

When all manipulations are done, a surgeon fixates and lifts tissues and muscles, all punctures are stitched up with absorbable sutures. Then, special bandages are applied.

How long does a full recovery from facelift take?

An intensive recovery period takes 1 month.

After surgery, small hematomas and swelling occur. However, they disappear soon. A patient can feel a discomfort in the places of stitching. If necessary, a doctor prescribes painkillers.

In 2 days, the bandage is removed. 

A patient can return to a normal lifestyle in about a month. 

The final result is observed in half of the year. 

What are the side effects of facelift?

Despite the fact that facelift is considered a quite safe procedure, side effects may also take place. Among them are:

  • hematomas. They usually occur in 24 hours after surgery. Luckily, they disappear soon.
  • Scarring. In most cases, scars are hardly visible or hidden under the hairline.
  • Nerve injury. The doctor’s manipulations may damage nerves, so a patient can lose the sensitivity of some skin areas. Normally, it recovers after some time.
  • Bleeding (rare).
  • Infections (rare).
  • Hair loss. Temporary or permanent hair loss is possible around the places of incisions.

How many times is it possible to have a facelift in Thailand?

You can do facelift as many times as you need. Note that the result of facelift lasts about 7-12 years.

How many years will I look younger after facelift?

Facelift cannot slow down or stop facial aging. It allows you improving your face making it younger at the moment. The result completely depends on your age, bone and skin structure, hereditary, lifestyle. Also, you need to be realistic about the result: it is impossible to look 20 years old when you are 60 in fact.

Are the scars noticeable after facelift in Thailand?

After facelift surgery, scars remain. However, they are almost invisible. The deal is that a doctor makes incisions in the hairy area to hide the traces. Also, the professionalism of a plastic surgeon plays a crucial role: experienced doctors in Thailand manipulate very accurately, so scars are tiny and almost inconspicuous.

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.

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.
