Nerves, lack of sleep, airplanes, hotels and traveling to another country are often things that can leave us feeling a little under the weather at the best of times. That’s why it is so important to take good care of ourselves when traveling overseas for surgery.
Here are a few tips that will hopefully keep you feeling good pre and post surgery in Thailand:
1. SLEEP- Leading up to the big day this can be the biggest battle. If you are really struggling it may be a good idea to talk to your GP.
2. MULTI VITAMIN- These can be a really good tool to help build your immune system. Please check the ingredients with your Case Manager as some vitamins are banned before surgery.
3. HYDRATION- This so so important! 2 liters a day minimum. Flying can really dehydrate you so remember to keep up your fluids on the plane.
4. HEALTHY EATING- Green smoothies, fresh fruit, and vegetables are vital pre and post surgery. Stay away from nasty takeaways and pre-packaged food. You will feel all the better for it.
5. EXERCISE- Pre-surgery this will keep you feeling good inside and out. Post surgery you will need to retire from your usual fitness regime however light walking will get your blood circulating and relieve you from a little bit of cabin fever from the hotel room.
6. NO PARTYING- As tempting as this can be alcohol is really your enemy. Pre-surgery alcohol can thin your blood making it incredibly dangerous in surgery. Post surgery you are in recovery mode, on strong pain killer and antibiotics. Make sure you give yourself adequate time to recover from hitting the clubs and showing off your new assets when you get home.

In March, I had rhinoplasty with Dr Montien, through International Rejuvenation. Originally I chose the Silver Package due to a friend coming with me, however things changed and she was unable to come. I felt worried and scared about going alone therefore, I decided to change to the Gold Package and

I would like to thank you sincerely for all the help and support you gave me , in both pre and post surgery.I guess usually I am quite a reserved person, but you seemed to know just when to contact me.Lol , I remember the days leading up to my surgery, I was starting to think about it, and I panicke
When I signed up I was a little dubious about overseas travel. That all changed in the first 5 minutes of talking to Sam on the phone, she became my new best friend. She was on hand any time to take my calls or texts or emails (even at stupid o’clock), whenever we talked we talked at length and sh
Thanks so much for the fantastic support you have given me with my recent surgery! You put me at ease from the first time I spoke with you and made making all my plans for the surgery a breeze.

Undoubtedly making the decision to have plastic surgery overseas is both scary and exciting. Weighing up the pro’s and con’s and not trying to give into the scare mongering that seems to surround this subject is confusing. And thats where Sam came in. Sam proved to be not only friendly, reliable

When I started my journey, I had no idea what I was in for.
My mind was set on the Gold Coast, but after two consultations with different Doctors, I had resigned myself to the fact it would never happen, due to the cost and the less than personal dealings with these two Companies.

Last October I had the adventure of a lifetime when I had the courage to make a life dream come true by travelling to Bangkok for dental. But I had a huge amount of help from my case worker Sarah in the months before my trip. I booked my trip in April, and in that time I had a million questions whic

In the lead up to my decision to travel I had researched to death the options available and obviously “shopped around” with other companies in order to make the best decision on whom to travel with. At the end of the day it came down to one thing – who I felt really was going to look out for m
Since my first contact I was surprised and elated at how professional and courteous the staff were, especially Sarah my Case Manager. Without fail she would follow up any queries or concerns I had, provided direction when I had no idea of where to go or what to do and was a friendly ear when I just
I chose IR because mainly of the price difference compared to what I had been researching at other hospitals. I already knew which surgeon I wanted & he happened to have been one of the IR’s surgeons too. So it would have been silly of me to book else where and pay up to $2000 more for the same su
I would just like to say a little something to the two wonderful women that have been a part of this insanely wicked, fun & meaningful chapter in my life! From the start Sam and Sarah have been assisting me in coming to Thailand with International Rejuvenation to get open Rhinoplasty & dental done,
