As a medical traveler, you can save thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars on cosmetic surgery in foreign destinations, not because of substandard quality, training or experience but due to different health care delivery systems, lower malpractice and liability premiums and methods of practice in locations such as South America, Central Europe and South Africa.
No mistake, choosing a qualified plastic surgeon is extremely important. That’s why you need to carefully research qualifications, experience, training, education, and most importantly, feedback or testimonials from real patients. Any doctor or surgeon worth his salt is not only going to give you testimonials and feedback from former patients; he or she is going to get you in contact with them if you request a discussion or meeting.
The doctor or surgeon you choose should be a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or a Society of Plastic Surgeons in their country of origin or employment. Surgeries should be performed in an accredited facility by certified surgeons experienced in their specialty. Physicians and surgeons should be willing to inform potential clients of their training, experience and education, and offer proof, no matter the foreign destination that is chosen.
So whether you’re looking for a nose job or breast augmentation, a tummy tuck or ear surgery, do your homework. It’s your body, your money and your goals. Make sure your doctor not only has the qualifications and experience you’re looking for, but also the attitude, compassion and interest in you that you expect.
