The most common cosmetic surgeries and treatments include:
- Breast augmentation or reduction
- Nose surgery
- Tummy tucks
Can you afford this? If you live in the U.S., your answer might be no. For example, did you know that in the U.S., liposuction can cost upward of $4,000 per area of the body? Or that Botox treatments run from $200-$400 per area. Compare that to treatments in Thailand that may cost anywhere from $130-$180. Such cosmetic treatments in India may range from $112-$180 per treatment area.
Is this because the care is substandard? No. It’s because other countries don’t have the outrageous and high malpractice insurance requirements as the U.S. Different health care delivery systems mean, for those seeking affordable cosmetic surgery, cheaper prices for the best in quality and patient-centered care.
For example, the cost of liposuction to the lower abdomen costs around $2,000 in the United States. Liposuction to the outer thighs may cost $1,600 each. Medical tourists may benefit through cosmetic surgery procedures centers in Argentina, where charges costs are less, generally under $3,000, which in many cases includes lodging. Liposuction in India costs one tenth of what it costs in the United States.
Whether you want to find an exotic and secluded destination or one in the midst of a bustling city, numerous countries around the world are able to offer superlative cosmetic plastic surgeries for huge savings for medical travelers.
