As the thirst for plastic surgery in Thailand grows, this has led to many Thai females searching for alternative beauty solutions. In fact, Thai ladies are seeking better ways in order to achieve the ultimate look via cosmetic treatment. Now, who said beauty was only skin deep.
Thanks to an emerging market where overseas patients benefit from top-notch surgeons at a fraction of the price, Thai women are starting to see the benefits. With greater accessibility, cosmetic surgery is not purely for the wealthy. Thai girls working in numerous jobs in varied sectors are presently saving every baht for a cosmetic procedure.
“Thailand is undeniably a world leader in medical tourism. Over the last decade alone, the industry has generated more than $5 billion. Coupled with affordable healthcare in modernized hotel-style hospitals, Thai women are seizing the opportunity to go under the knife in pursuit of a better version of themselves” says Paulie Webster of MyMediTravel.
Thai women are looking to achieve a cuter or more alluring look based on their current visage. Consequently, over the next few years, the trend points towards increasing demand for eyelid surgery, facial contouring, and rhinoplasty procedures.
As far as the latter is concerned, nose jobs have been gaining in popularity. Due to the shortage of a western-style bridge, Thai women are becoming more and more aware of this specific feature and looking for ways to enhance their appearance.
Meanwhile, breast augmentation procedures in Thailand have never been so popular with Thai women. Boob jobs are considered to be one of the most common procedures as Thai women’s figures and breast shape tend to be slightly flatter. In addition, a yearning to become more Westernized in terms of a fuller breast shape has seen many women look to one of the 60-plus JCI-accredited hospitals across the country.
And with recovery time taking less than four to six weeks, it is no wonder Thai ladies are penning these procedures into their diaries. However, one of the most en vogue treatments Thai women are favoring at the moment is Asian Double Eyelid Surgery, also known as the Blepharoplasty.
Following the latest fashion craze, this new beauty standard, hugely popular in South Korea, has dramatically changed the cosmetic landscape. Bigger double-lidded eyes are most certainly in along with a narrower face, smaller chin, and paler skin. These qualities have now seen a recent upsurge in Thai females wanting to appear like their South Korean counterparts. Many will stop at nothing in order to achieve the ultimate double eyelid via surgical methods.
Supporting evidence also suggests that the number of double eyelid ops is becoming even more appealing. Figures from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reveal that double eyelid treatments are currently in the top 5 most carried out global procedures. Making the eye area richer and fuller, there has been in excess of 1.5 million procedures undertaken in the last two years alone which is set to rise in South East Asia.
