When to travel abroad for a cosmetic surgery transformation

Medical tourism has become trendy in recent years to save a bit of cash on cosmetic surgery. Places like Turkey, Prague, Estonia, Lithuania and Thailand are hotspots for plastic surgery. The favourable exchange rates mean prices are reasonable but the lack of regulation, safety and aftercare put you in a precarious position. Not to mention the risks associated with flying in the lead-up to and following your op.

  • Flying within four weeks of your procedure puts you at a significant risk of life-threatening deep vein thrombosis

  • Surgical regulations are more relaxed in some countries, putting you at risk of avoidable surgical complications or unsatisfactory results

  • Credentials, testimonials, portfolios and reviews may not be legitimate; there are not always stringent rules in place – you may not get the result you expect

  • You get reduced/no aftercare once you leave the country you received medical treatment

  • Language barriers can cause complications with treatment and aftercare

  • Accommodation and transport costs mean you may not even save money

  • It’s recommended to travel in advance of the surgery and well afterwards. You’ll need to budget and schedule for a 4-6 week trip overseas

  • You’ll need family or friends nearby to support you during your initial recovery period

Many overseas clinics tempt patients in with misleading testimonials, credentials, experience and portfolios while failing to mention the serious health risks of travelling before and after extensive surgery. Where your health is concerned, it’s always smart to choose a reputable surgeon. Moreover, you ensure satisfactory results in the first instance
