During the past decade there has been a growing trend in the number of people seeking plastic surgery abroad in a foreign country, and if you are thinking of having surgery, then this is something you may also have considered.
Going overseas for plastic surgery offers several advantages, the most obvious of which, being reduced cost.
Those who live in the UK, USA or Western Europe, for example, are likely to find the cost of international plastic surgery far cheaper than in their home country due to favorable exchange rates.
Over a million Americans per year travel to exotic destinations for cosmetic and non-cosmetic procedures.
There are, of course, disadvantages to having plastic surgery done abroad. For one, you will be in a foreign country which may have lower standards of patient care than in your home country.
Furthermore, seeing a plastic surgeon abroad also makes it much more difficult to visit them in person for consultation meetings and then for checkups after your surgery.
But with that said, over a million Americans go overseas for plastic surgery each year, so it obviously can’t be that bad if so many people are doing it!
