Let’s get started
Before we book your tour and procedures, we focus on understanding exactly what result you’re looking for. Rather than matching you with the next available surgeon, we want to ensure you are under the care of the specialist whose expertise best suits your specific needs.
Starting your journey
3 simple steps to the look you want…
Step 1: Your Personal Assessment
The first step in getting started is to give us a full background about your current situation and what you would like to achieve. Take your time to complete our online Personal Assessment form as fully as possible. Attach photographs, following the examples in the How to Take Photos instructions (selecting the relevant body part/s you would like to improve). By including photos, our specialist surgeons will be able to advise on the best procedure(s) to achieve the results you want.
Step 2: Your surgeon’s recommendations
Once an assessment has been completed by the surgeon, they will send us a recommendation that outlines which procedure(s) will best achieve the result you want, and how long you will need to stay in Thailand after surgery.
Step 3: Booking your tour
When we have received the surgeon’s assessment, we will contact you and go through the recommendation together, answer any questions you may have and discuss what dates you would like to travel to Thailand. Once you are happy to proceed with surgery, you will be asked to pay a $350 booking fee to secure your surgeon. We will liaise with you to confirm a date for surgery and then you are free to book your flights.
Please do not make any flight bookings until we come back to you with confirmed dates.
Select a package or a group trip
Our travel packages are designed for those travelling with a companion or by themselves. We have different accommodation options that include VIP airport transfers, appointment and consultation transfers, for clients having surgery and a hospital stay. Our group trips are for those who prefer to stay in the same accommodation as other clients with MediCation Tours co-ordinators on hand. Please register your interest for the group trips, as these fill up quickly.
Getting ready to go
Before you depart for your Thailand medical tour, you will receive a comprehensive MediCation information pack. This contains details about everything from where to purchase post-surgery compression wear to details about travel. Your pack will also include your personal itinerary, with detailed timings, locations, procedures and consultation information.
Preparing for your procedures
For all appointments, passport identification will be required by our specialist hospitals and clinics. Please remember to take your passport with you each time you visit.
Before your procedure, have a quiet evening and early night. If you are having a surgical procedure the next day, please remember not to have food after midnight.
Clients will be collected from the hotel by our driver for all consultations and appointments. Your initial meeting with your surgeon will be a full consultation that will include blood tests and health checks. Your procedure will usually be the same day and your nurses will help you relax and take you through what will happen at each step.
Following your procedure, you may be spending some nights in hospital. The length of your stay will depend on the procedure(s) you have had. When it is time to leave the hospital, our driver will be waiting to collect and deliver you safely back to your hotel.
Before leaving the hospital, your surgeon will arrange a follow up appointment with you, usually for 5 – 7 days later. Follow up appointments will involve the removal or changing of dressings and removal of stitches by the surgeon. During every phase of your after-care you will be given detailed recovery information.
Dental clients will usually have their initial consultation the day following their arrival. Your dental surgeon will confirm your treatment plan and appointments with you during this consultation. All of our selected dental clinics are located near your hotel for your convenience.
Post-Procedure Support at Home
While every surgery carries with it an element of risk, it is very rare for our clients to experience post-surgery issues. However, if you have any concerns at all, we always recommend you contact your GP in the first instance. Please then contact us and let us know. We have a New Zealand plastic surgeon on call who is available to consult with any of our clients once they are back home.
