Traveling For Plastic Surgery

By Paul Easton

Why would anyone choose to travel to a foreign country, rather than opting for a major medical center in their home town, when seeking some types of cosmetic surgery?

Why go through the trouble and inconvenience of traveling internationally? You might be surprised when you find out that there are very good reasons why plastic surgery travel is easier, more convenient, and more useful than you believe.

It is not very likely that your Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) or insurance company will pay the cost of a chosen cosmetic procedure that is deemed to be elective rather than medically necessary, so you will find yourself assuming all of the costs.

Owing to the high living cost in the US, the similar procedure done by the best board certified surgeons there, costs very less.

For example, a child born with a cleft palate or a seriously injured burn patient will require extensive plastic, or reconstructive, surgery in order to achieve a more "normal" appearance and emotional healing. Insurance companies and HMOs will cover the cost of these surgeries since they are considered medically necessary.

Conversely, procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation, face lifts, rhinoplasty and other surgeries that are performed for the sole purpose of enhancing one's appearance are rarely, if ever, covered by HMOs and insurance companies.

For instance, if you are looking for a medical facility outside the U.S., choose one that offers individualized plastic surgery travel consultation from the time of initial contact through post-surgical care.

As pre- and post-op hotel arrangements have been made for you, you will enjoy having the emotional peace of mind that an essential part of plastic surgery travel has already been handled for you.

What about standards of care? If you decide to obtain your plastic surgery abroad, the price of the procedure will be less, but will the quality of your surgery and post-surgical care be as great as in the United States?

You will be working with an agent of the medical facility who is fluent in your language to ensure that you understand your plastic surgery itinerary.

When you have plastic surgery abroad at a qualified medical facility, you can be assured that you will receive the finest standard of care globally available, both in your surgical procedure and your post-surgical care.
