Every year there are 15,000 Australians who travel to Thailand to undergo affordable cosmetic surgery.
One of who was 3 Cindy, a 7-year-old from Melbourne, who realized her figure was never the same after child birth to her two children when she was but a teenager herself.
The beauty therapist chosen to have nose surgery and a ‘mummy makeover’ package, including a tummy tuck and breast implants, working out at an estimated $12,600
Ms Briese looks noticeably changed after her nose surgery, tummy tuck and breast implants and said it was her desire to commit her Spanx pants and padded bras to history and that impelled Ms Briese to go to Thailand for Surgery.
The 37-year-old had her son, now age 19, and a daughter, aged 14, when she was but a teenager herself and her figure never really recovered.
‘Most of us nip and tuck daily by wearing Spanx and padded bras, this is just a permanent way to do what we go through every day,’ she said.
The Australian mum went on a medical tour with a Medical Tourism company established for many years.
Ms Briese paid around $9000 AUD for her ‘mummy makeover’ bundle which included breast implants and a tummy tuck in addition to fourteen nights in Thailand.
Her nose surgery cost just over $3600, bringing the total cost for her surgeries to around $12,600.
She is just one of the 15,000 Australians who fly to Thailand each year in search of inexpensive plastic surgery at the hands of expert and extremely well qualified surgeons, frequently a third of the cost of the same procedures in Australia.
Thailand, which once tolerated companies with risky back-street surgeons and precarious practices, is today the center of a thriving multi billion dollar medical tourism industry, which drew in a astounding $4.31 billion in revenue in 2013.
