Cosmetic Surgery In Thailand – When Does The Line Get Crossed?

Update 16/09/2018


At the Naravee Aesthetic Center in Bangkok, we are proud to have changed the lives of countless patients for the better. In some cases, all it took was one cosmetic surgery procedure in Thailand to completely restore a person’s confidence and seeing this metamorphosis is a joy to behold. However, we also have a duty of care to our patients and adhere to a Code of Ethics.

How Much Is Too Much?

For some people, one procedure is not enough; they see the amazing results and believe more is better. As a consequence, they start looking for multiple plastic surgery procedures in Thailand. It begins with a tummy tuck then graduates to liposuction before a nose job, boob job and full facelift are requested. The result is that the patient begins to resemble a Ken or Barbie doll more than a human being.

The majority of people who ‘overdo’ cosmetic surgery suffer from a condition known as Body Dysmorphia Disorder (BDD). It is a mental health condition where the patient is overly critical of their own appearance and are constantly trying to ‘improve’ it. The result is a series of cosmetic procedures that completely ruins their appearance permanently. An estimated 2% of people suffer from this medical condition and it is up to medical professionals to notice the signs.

At Naravee, our surgical team takes great care to ensure they do not continually perform procedures on patients with suspected BDD. Signs that someone has this issue include attempts to hide previous surgeries and excessive praise before the surgery has even taken place.

By all means, look to cosmetic surgery in Thailand as a means of improving your overall appearance but don’t look for multiple procedures to fix all your perceived flaws. The more procedures you have, the more likely it is that you’ll move further and further away from what you really need.
