Hidden Hassles of Cosmetic Surgery Vacations

There continues to be a lot of buzz about the idea of traveling specifically to get cheaper cosmetic surgery abroad. The argument suggests that even with airfare, meals and lodging, the total cost for the surgery is less. The truth is, plastic surgery is about much more than the bottom line financially.

International Standards

The standards for surgeries in other countries are not the same as the ones here at home. Are you willing to risk having your procedure performed in a facility that you won’t see until after your arrival? The United States has extremely high safety standards to be followed while performing the procedures, as well as which materials to be used. There are also strict guidelines regarding the clinical facilities themselves. Other countries don’t take the same precautions, which means that in many cases you can’t really be sure what level of care you’ll receive.

Other Hassles

Even if the clinic and surgery exceed your expectations, you’ll still be left to recover on your own in a foreign country. Do you really want to recuperate from a facelift or breast augmentation in a strange hotel room? Wouldn’t you rather be at home in familiar surroundings with your support network?

As they say, when things seem too good to be true, they often are. When looking at the big picture of price vs. results, your best option is to get your cosmetic surgery here in Denver from a trusted professional.
