Plastic Surgery Tourism

Low health-care cost and improved medical standards in developing countries have led to the emergence of plastic surgery tourism as a growing travel niche. It's a price-driven phenomenon, middle class citizens of Western countries are willing to travel around the world in order to evade the exploding medical cost at home.

This classic win-win situation allows patients to save thousands of dollars on their next nip, tuck and lift. On top of that they get a holiday in a beautiful exotic country like Thailand, South Africa or Costa Rica included for free.

Asian destinations like Thailand , the Philippines and Singapore are most popular for plastic surgery trips. They offer first-class medical facilities that are up to Western standards. Many of the qualified and experienced plastic surgeons in these countries have received their training in the US . Every type of female and male plastic surgery is on offer for face, breasts and body.

The plastic surgery industry is booming especially in Thailand , with various excellent private clinics in Bangkok , Phuket and Koh Samui. Only institutions that are registered with the Thai National Health Authority should be selected. Combining your plastic surgery with a relaxing stay on a beautiful Asian beach is definitely a good idea!

It also offers awesome scenic views on the coast around Table Mountain and various outdoor activities.
