Most common questions about Cosmetic/Plastic Surgery Tourism
What is cosmetic surgery tourism?
Everyone has that little something they would like to fix, but cosmetic surgery is expensive and therefore out of reach to many. Because of the high cost of uninsured medical care in North America, Americans and Canadians are seeking out low cost, high quality cosmetic treatment options outside North America with cosmetic surgery tourism, often while combining a vacation in a relaxing setting. Common services include liposuction, breast augmentation, face-lifts, tummy tucks, and rhinoplasty. Common cosmetic surgery tourism destinations offering US standards in dental care are Costa Rica and Cancun, Mexico.
Who is a good candidate for cosmetic surgery tourism?
If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, are in good physical health, and you are open to traveling and experiencing different cultures, cosmetic tourism may be right for you. Every year, tens of thousands of North Americans travel for cosmetic purposes. In fact, Costa Rica and Mexico are considered amongst the best destinations in the world for cosmetic procedures on a price-quality basis.
