TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE! AUSTRALIANS BE WARNED!
Destination Beauty is not a Plastic Surgery Clinic as advertised on Google and have an incredibly difficult to find disclaimer confirming they "only helps you find medical treatment opportunities abroad. The role of Destination Beauty is to act as a marketing agent for medical facilities and arrange medical treatment packages with the option to include a holiday package. Destination Beauty does not offer any medical advice and is no way liable for the actions of third parties."
What this disclaimer means for a foreigner is that Destination Beauty will not take any responsibilty should you end up with life threatening infections and a botched job.
Australian Health funds will not insurer you for this.
If anything goes wrong it is highly unlikely you will win a civil pursuit as Thailands laws are lax in comparison. You will be left out of pocket lots of $$$$$.
Destination Beauty use high pressure sales tactics which constantly made me feel like I would have to pay more $$ if I didnt deposit a large sum of money within a few days. This is illegal in Australia.
I never would have made any committments if it was obvious to me that
Destination Beauty were only a marketing agency and unable to provide me with medical advice in anyway shape or form.
It is very easy to misinterpret Destination Beautys role as their marketing material on their website bombards you with statements such as "Our plastic surgery center offers all common plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures. We do surgery every day as we believe that experience is the most important part" - this statement alone suggests they have a plastic surgery centre and that they perform surgeries every day.....
Australian Government has published the following to its citizens about Thailand:
"Exercise a high degree of caution in Thailand overall due to the possibility of civil unrest and the threat of terrorist attack, including in Bangkok and Phuket."
"Sexual assault, assault, robbery and drink spiking can happen to tourists."
Destination Beauty's Prameruthai Parisutthagul has continued with highly stressful and unreasonable threats in the event I did not remove my review as follows:
"Should you refuse to comply with that we will file a police report with the Royal Thai police, and the criminal court in Thailand. We will contact the Australian police as well as the Australian embassy in Thailand. There will be a libel lawsuit in Australia with a large compensation amount should you fail to comply with our request to remove these posts and to cease and desist your illegal activities"
This over the top threat is a deliberate scare tactic to cause me stress and anxiety as this "punishment" in no way shape or form reasonably meets the perceived "crime".
This has been a devasting experience for me and I am already in a vulnerable position physically (medical reason). I could only imagine how many other Australian women they have done this to.
Feel free to contact me if you would like specific details.
IF YOU GET TO THE POINT WHERE YOU ARE ABOUT TO SIGN A CONTRACT, HAVE AN AUSTRALIAN LAWYER CHECK IT!
