Cosmetic Surgery Tourism Outside the United States

Although there are many skilled and qualified physicians practicing all over world, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons cautions that it may be difficult to assess the training and credentials of surgeons outside of the United States. In addition, devices and products used may not meet U.S. standards. Beware of cosmetic surgery tourism packages: bargain surgery can end up being very costly.

For patients travelling abroad, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery also recommends that you take the time to fully understand what your aftercare requirements will be. How long after your procedure will you need to stay in the area? Who will care for you in your initial recovery?, and what physician will care for you at home if complications arise? What are the costs for this post-operative care?

Travel after Surgery

Before flying, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons suggests waiting five to seven days after body procedures such as liposuction and breast augmentation and seven to 10 days after cosmetic procedures of the face including facelifts, eyelid surgery, nose jobs, and laser treatments. Long travel flights taken too soon can increase the risk of post-surgical complications.
