Medical Tourism

Let the Buyer Beware!

There are many factors to consider when traveling abroad to have plastic surgery.  Cost savings is the least of it.  I’ll point out a couple of them for you.   What do you know about the instrument sterilizing protocols?   Is it worth getting Hepatitis C during an eyelid procedure?  Are you getting black market or gray market breast implants (i.e.; expired, discontinued, recalled, unapproved). The most common issue is getting sizers not actual implants.

Who is there to take care of even minor problems.  Suture abscesses, thickened scarring, and transient eye issues?

I’ve seen many patients through the years who ended up spending more money to correct secondary problems than if they stayed in the U.S. to have their original procedures!  Just think it through critically before you act, that’s all!
