As I was walking around the streets of Bangkok one evening I could not believe a sight that I saw. A mother and her two young teenage daughters were walking along the pavement, as you would expect, but the two teenage daughters, who could not have been more than 8 years old, were in full makeup along with a top and skirt that no child of that age should be wearing. When my friend, a seasoned expatriate living here, so my shock and disgust they kindly explained that Thai people like to hold beauty pageants in the villages as a sort of status symbol.
I am not sure if a facelift is something I would ever actually contemplate doing. As a guy I am perfectly happy with my body, I am not perfect but then that is what makes me unique and if we all looked the same then we would get tired of looking at each other (so I am told). But many older people are seeing a facelift as the cheapest and quickest way to get in to cosmetic surgery in some way and to stave off the aging process.
Wrinkles are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be but they can be unsightly depending on the person and their age or build so a facelift in Thailand is sometimes recommended but you need to research it first as you do any real medical procedure. I am not old enough yet to really care about my face and the wrinkles on it but who knows? In 20 years time when we all have implants facelifts and cosmetic surgery may be so advanced parents can design their children before they are born.
Many tourists decide to travel to Thailand for medical tourism and one of the most popular procedures is the simple facelift. Many people though are not entirely sure what this procedure involves so this blog post will outline a few procedures that you can come to expect if you decide to have a facelift in Thailand.
A facelift is designed to give you a more youthful appearance by removing excess facial skin and this can involve the tightening or not of the underlying tissue also. According to 2008 statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, facelifts were the sixth most popular procedure that people had.
As a huge fan of The Matrix movies I was pleased to learn that the directors are ready to release their next opus, Cloud Atlas, but what was even more interesting was how one of the Wachowski brothers had decided to have sex change and was now called Lana. It made me wonder what makes people consider a sex change which is a common form of cosmetic surgery in Thailand and what the rationale is behind such a mammoth decision.
There is no doubt as to the popularity and necessity of cosmetic surgery in modern society. After all, who does not want to look beautiful and show of their ribs at the same time? It's a win-win for all concerned. But when people are going under the knife we never really think about the reasons why and again, in a recent study, the most popular procedure was botox (also known as botulinum toxin injection) which is done nearly three million times per year followed by liposuction (lipoplasty) which is done nearly two and a half million times per year.
Medical tourism is now becoming a big business and it is no surprise that many people, usually from countries with medical insurance that has to be paid for, and/or paid for at an exorbitant price, are travelling to countries where the same procedures cost less money in order to make themselves look better.
But we have all seen the movies where it goes wrong and the patient looks like something even Frankenstein would not look twice at so the question here is has technology and time changed for the better? An example of the cost savings can be seen on open-heart surgery.

With hordes of medical tourists swarming overseas for affordable elective procedures, the merits of cosmetic surgery in Thailand are becoming more familiar to people in the West. No longer can the media spin the tired old stories relating to unsafe clinics. Millions of men and women have enjoyed cosmetic surgery in Thailand and are aware of the world class facilities, surgeons and equipment used. A host of clinics in Thailand now perform Vaser liposuction. This is a new form of cosmetic surgery in Thailand and one which is said to outperform its traditional counterpart.
