Plastic Surgery Abroad – Good idea?

It is a fact that cosmetic plastic surgery procedures are not cheap; however, patients should never choose price over quality. There are several countries abroad that are offering plastic surgery procedures for a fraction of the cost of a procedure in the United States. Although the lower fee may sound appealing, it is imperative to take all other factors into account – safety being the most important of these. When it comes to your body and surgery of any kind, there is no price tag.

As I see it, how can you undergo a safe procedure in a country where you cannot drink the tap water or use ice cubes in your beverages? In addition to safety, there is a hefty cost in traveling to another country just to save a few dollars on the procedure. When it’s all said and done, you may end up spending much more on the overseas surgery than you would have at home. Furthermore, if you are visiting a surgeon in a foreign country you will not be able to continue your follow-up appointments with him/her during the following year or so. This may lead to complications and/or unsatisfactory results. If you are set on going abroad for your surgery, be sure to research the surgeon and facility in order to ensure the utmost in safety throughout the entire process – from consultation to final post-surgery appointment.
