If discreet surgical enhancement along with five-star treatment and beautiful
surroundings for your recovery is what you are after, then look no further than
this selection of luxury medical spas. Anastasia Stephens looks at some of the
best places to visit that are in-demand as never before

The original anti-ageing spa, at La Prairie you can turn back the traces of
time on everything from facial-lines to your arteries. Nestled on the shores of
Switzerland’s Lac Leman, La Prairie offers a team of medical experts, ready to
carry out everything from hip replacements, to eyelifts, breast-augmentation and
cosmetic dentistry for a brighter smile. If that’s too drastic, you can opt for a touch
of Botox or a little cheekbone enhancement. Meals are prepared with a focus
on nutritional benefit as well as taste and a wide range of pampering massages
and beauty therapies are also available. Those who crave complete discretion
can book a self-contained suite with an elevator that leads straight to the medical
rooms. Private cars can be booked to pick you up from Geneva airport, a one
hour drive away.

At the Hotel Fortina, built on a rocky outcrop overlooking the southern
Mediterranean, you can relax in your personal Wellness Rejuvenation Room
with a massaging bath or steam shower, knowing that all the water you use is
purified. From your palm-lined balcony you can choose from a raft of cosmetic
surgery procedures including a non-surgical facelift. The hotel has links with
consultants from St James Private Hospital Group in London and Medical Malta.
The extensive choice of spa treatments – which includes a Cleopatra style goat’s
milk bath – will help you recover.

This high-tech spa facility has seven spa suites, five consultation rooms,
massage rooms, a pharmacy and laboratory, making medical diagnosis and
treatment, along with any pampering, immediately available. Voted one of the
best medical spas in Asia, it offers a wide range of cosmetic treatments including
fractional resurfacing where a laser clears out uneven skin colour and carboxy, a
technique that reduces cellulite.

Combining Italian chic with pampering and a wide range of medical expertise,
the Capri Palace Hotel is a true delight. You’ll find fresh orchids and French
doors opening to a lazy pool area and for beauty and anti-aging treatments,
book into the eponymous Beauty Farm adjacent to the hotel. Here, you can have
a full health check including an ECG, allergy-tests and nutrient tests. Beauty
treatments include facial peels, Botox, cheek and lip enhancement using fillers
and implants and spa treatments use mineral waters from nearby springs.

Bathe in the thermal waters in five-star luxury at this 200-year-old spa town, while
taking in views of the southern Austrian Alps. At the medical centre you can book
most cosmetic procedures such as liposuction, eye-lifts and hair transplants.
Gently recover using the spa facilities which include a salt water grotto, a Finnish
sauna and a crushed ice fountain. The spa water is said to promote cellular
rejuvenation. If outdoors is your thing, you can go hiking and skiing or play golf
and tennis depending on the season.
