“Medical-Tourism-in-Thailand.COM” provides reliable international medical tourism facts about affordable surgery abroad.

Seven years ago finding good value for money healthcare was easy. Now it is downright challenging and we can recommend few things.

Silicone breast implants are FDA approved

Your plastic surgery medical tourism MUST be well guided or you may discover too late that prices for international medical tourists are now often higher than in Australia, the USA and London.

Do NOT make decisions about your health based on terribly outdated information.

Transsexuals have begun to realize that Bangkok long ago stopped providing the best MtF SRS. Excellent self-promotion and marketing does NOT equal best surgical results and good quality of life for the patient. And Thailand never provided the best FtM surgical results.

Warning: Healthcare in Thailand is now very much health care for profit after the American model — maximum profit — and obscene profit if possible.

It is EXPENSIVE for everyone and anyone — including Thais — not only visitors from other countries.

American insurance companies buying up and taking over Thai hospitals is only part of the reason.

Very few Thai physicians still believe like Dr. Somsak Lolekha MD, PhD, former president of the Medical Council of Thailand that: “Medicine is about saving lives, not making money.”

Many of Thailand's great humanitarian doctors, such as Dr. Sommai Tongprasert, have passed away or retired.

Thai hospital CEOs complain: "Physicians have become businessmen first, doctors second."

“Just a quick note to thank you for all your assistance in arranging my operation. I am pleased to say that it has now been successfully done & after two weeks holiday in Thailand & Singapore to recuperate, I am now back in Australia. I was very impressed with the whole set up of the hospital & found it very professional & world class. I would have no hesitation in recommending you & your service as well as the hospital to anyone interested. Thanks also for arranging the resort … very comfortable & peaceful. Once again, thank you for all your help. Kind Regards. — Murray Patterson

For the same procedure, some Thai plastic surgeons charge more than 75% of Board Certified plastic surgeons in the USA.

Some Thai hospitals catering to the local Thai community are charging unsuspecting Thai people 300% what the procedure costs in the USA.

Thai people themselves should and ARE going elsewhere for the best value for money. including for:

Those are the reasons we also provide information about the best medical tourism destinations outside of Thailand, such as:

We have personally experienced the good, the bad, the ugly, the cheap and the expensive of private hospitals and government hospitals from Nan in the north to Phuket in the south and Bangkok in between.
