What are the Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures Done Today?

Do you want to know the top cosmetic surgeries sought after by both men and women these days? You may not be surprised… but then again, maybe you will. The amount of money people spend on such procedures may stagger you (hint – it’s in the billions of dollars).

Here are the latest trends in cosmetic surgeries:

* Breast augmentation

* Breast lift

* Dermabrasion

* Tummy tuck

* Botox treatments

* Laser skin resurfacing

Why? Well, competition for one. In today’s economy, men and women need all the help they can get to compete for jobs. The problem is cost. Most cosmetic procedures aren’t covered by insurance in the U.S. So what do you do? You got it… you travel abroad. Check out these numbers:

In the U.S., breast augmentation costs an average of $4,000 to $6,000. You can get the same procedure in Thailand for $3,500 to 3,900 in Thailand. In India, you’ll pay 75% less than costs in the U.S.

In the U.S., breast lifts cost between $4,000 and $7,000. Travelers heading south of the border to Argentina can pay 40-80% less than costs incurred in the U.S.

Tummy tucks range from between $5,500 to $7,500 in the US. In Argentina, costs are 50% less. In India, a tummy tuck costs about $3,700.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Costs are not reduced because of different healthcare delivery systems than found in the U.S. Of course, any medical traveler needs to verify the skills, credentials, and experience of any surgeon abroad, but you should be doing that at home, too.
