Top tips on having lip fillers in Thailand

Cita Catellya




Thailand is one of the best countries to go to for lip fillers. Every year, thousands of people arrive in this beautiful country to get voluptuous and plump lips. If you’re one of the people who’s planning to go to the Land of Smiles to get lip fillers, then there’s a lot of things you need to do to prepare yourself. So, to help you achieve your dream lips, here are our top tips on having lip fillers in Thailand.

1. Make sure the practitioner is medically qualified

The first and most important thing you need to do before flying to Thailand for lip fillers is choose a medically qualified practitioner. Regardless of what treatment you have, it’s always important to choose your practitioner wisely. There are so many stories about botched lip fillers by self-proclaimed aestheticians and doctors, including in Thailand. Remember, you want the safest procedure with the best results, so be sure to check the practitioner’s experience, qualifications, and reviews. If possible, ask for before and after pictures of their previous lip filler patients to make sure that you like their work.

Aside from the practitioner, it’s also a good idea to research the clinic, salon, or hospital they’re working at. Find out about the facility, the quality of equipment they’re using, and the customer service. Finding a qualified practitioner and a great clinic can be difficult, so if you’re not sure how to start with your search, you can always get the help of MyMediTravel. Their support team will be more than happy to assist you throughout everything, from finding a skilled practitioner to arranging your appointment.

2. Know your options

Numerous types of lip fillers are available in Thailand, and it’s important that you know most of them so you can decide which one is the best for you. In the past, collagen fillers were the most popular. However, they have dipped in popularity due to the discomfort that they can cause and the unnatural results they give. Today, hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are the most popular. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. Not only it adds volume to the lips but also enhance the shape and structure. In addition, HA fillers are reversible.

There are several types of HA fillers, but Restylane and Juvederm are the most common. Each type offers different things. Restylane Silk is usually used for those who only want a small change to their lips. Juvederm Ultra XC is popular among patients who want plumper lips, while those who want to define the line of their lips usually use Juvederm Volbella XC. Your practitioner may mix different types of lip fillers to achieve the best possible results.

Once you familiarise yourself with the different types of lip fillers, it’s best that you consult with your practitioner first before you make a final decision. A skilled practitioner should know what lip fillers will give you the result you want.

3. Don’t try to copy a celebrity pout

You might want Angelina Jolie’s lips, or someone you know may have the plumpest lips you’ve ever laid your eyes on, but don’t try to copy them. A lot of people make a mistake by deciding they want the exact same lips as a celebrity or others, only to find out that they don’t actually like the results. Remember that we all have our own beautiful facial contours and proportions that make us unique. Just because you like Kylie Jenner’s lips doesn’t mean it would look good on you. Your goal should be to emphasize your beautiful features instead of to look like somebody else completely.

That’s why finding an experienced practitioner is important. Someone with the right skills and experience will be able to find the best solution and give you the right advice, regardless of what you want. It’s important to be clear about the goal you want to achieve with your lip fillers, so your doctor can give you a satisfying result. If you want a natural-looking pout, our advice is to go with a small amount of lip filler first. You can always add more in the future if you don’t like the results.

4. Prepare for the pre-treatment and aftercare

You should avoid taking aspirin, vitamin E, ibuprofen, and fish oil supplements around a week before your lip filler procedure. These are natural blood thinners, so they can cause you to bruise more. If you regularly take any medications that contain aspirin, be sure to speak to your doctor first. Alcohol is another thing you need to avoid, especially the night before the procedure. Alcohol can cause extra swelling and bruising, as well as excessive bleeding.

Once you’ve had your lip fillers, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Your practitioner may ask you to avoid exercise for the first 24 to 48 hours to prevent increased swelling and bruising. You should also avoid a high-temperature environment. Since the temperature in Thailand can be pretty hot, it’s a good idea that you stay in a room with proper air-conditioning. During your recovery time, make sure to drink a lot of water and lift your pillow a bit when lying down. In addition, you can apply a lot of ice if your lips are swelling after the procedure.

5. Find out what’s included in the price

Different clinics include different things on their price, so it’s essential that you find out what you are paying for. Although lip filler injection is a lunchtime procedure, meaning you should be able to leave the clinic or hospital immediately, you still need to stay in Thailand for a few days to ensure that everything goes according to plan. This means that you need to stay in a hotel close to your clinic or hospital. In addition, you’ll need to add in transportation and other expenses. Some clinics offering treatments for medical tourists usually include consultation, hotel booking, and airport pickup in their price. However, others might only include the price of the lip fillers.
