Phuket Medical Tourism Gets a Lift

Thanks to an excellent health-care sector and world-class accommodation facilities for patients to recuperate in, Thailand’s medical tourism sector is going from strength to strength.

Phuket’s medical tourism industry in particular recently received an encouraging boost recently when THB900 million (US$25 million) was injected into the facilities offered to medial tourists at Phuket International Hospital.

Bangkok Dusit Medical Services (BDMS) has concentrated significant resources into creating a brand new building at Phuket International Hospital in order to facilitate demand from international patients. The brand new facility, which opened earlier this month, merges two of Phuket’s major cosmetic surgery venues: Phuket International Aesthetic Centre (PIAC) and Bangkok Phuket Institute of Cosmetic Surgery (BPICS).

The new facility is home to 10 new operation theatres, as well as comfortable client residences for overnight stays. There are 110 clinical and administrative staff employed at the building, which also houses the Rejuvenation & Longevity Institute and Skin Centre.

“Medical tourism in Phuket actually started before the turn of the century. The first website of its kind in Thailand is which was launched in 1998,” said Dr.Sanguan Kunaporn, one of the hospital’s senior doctors.

“Almost 20 years later, Phuket International Hospital plus Bangkok Phuket Hospital are enjoying more than 3,000 cosmetic surgery clients per year, not including minimal or non-invasive aesthetic procedures.”

According to a recent report by consultancy firm C9 Hotelworks, Australians represent a significant percentage of the cosmetic surgery clients who travel to the island, often on all-inclusive packages that offer treatment, transportation and accommodation.

“The industry caters primarily to female patients, which comprise almost 93 percent of the market,” noted Bill Barnett, CEO of C9 Hotelworks. “Also, medical tourists between 18 to 25 and 45 to 55 years old are the two largest age categories at 33% and 31%, respectively.”

However, it’s not just the excellent quality of care that entices visitors to Thailand to undergo cosmetic procedures. Tropical islands like Phuket offer fantastic places to relax and recover, particularly for clients staying in one of the island’s private holiday villas.

Not only does Phuket’s lavish portfolio of properties offer guests a comfortable setting to relax and recuperate, but it also offers the exclusivity and privacy they would want after undergoing a major cosmetic procedure.

The majority of Phuket’s high end villas are also home to a team of resident staff who can be at guests’ service whilst they focus on recovery. Resident teams usually include maintenance staff, whose job it is to keep the villa clean, fresh and tidy, as well as a professional chef who can prepare a selection of nutritious meals to help guests recover as quickly as possible.

For those that like to incorporate traditional and herbal remedies into their aftercare programme, private massage therapy is also easy to arrange.

“Inexpensive airfares and the significant difference of medical/healthcare costs with good quality between Western countries like Australia and developing countries like Thailand are among the key factors that ensure growth of this industry on Phuket,” added Dr. Sanguan.
