Plastic surgery abroad is part of a million dollar industry called medical tourism. This is a dream come true to a lot of people. Problems with regards to insecurities, low self-esteem, and poor self-confidence (owing to their physical appearance) will be given a very sharp and painful solution. As they say, you must suffer to be beautiful.
However, before you arrange for cosmetic surgery abroad, be sure that you have done your part to have a safe and smooth trip. Here are a few tips to remember before you finalize your plans for surgery abroad:
Know where you are going
Choose a specific country for your surgery abroad for specific reasons: expert surgeons, advanced medical practice, vacation destination, etc. However, you have to put your safety first above all else. Check whether the country has any traveling advices against them. Also, check whether there are current insurgencies in the country. This could jeopardize your safety.
Apart from that, find out also whether the country has any endemic diseases that are communicable or easily acquired. Ask advice from your local doctor before you visit the country you’re contemplating. No matter the lure of cheaper plastic surgery abroad, you have to make sure your safety and security is not compromised.
Go for a reputable, certified surgical clinic
There are private agencies that specifically check the quality of clinics that specialize on medical tourism. These governing agencies include Accreditation Canada and Joint Commission International. Only the hospitals and clinics that meet their standards are given certifications.
Their standards focus on the safety and improvement of patient care. The criteria should also cover the expertise and qualifications of the health care team (surgeons, nurses, and anesthesiologists), equipment and materials, and the total patient care (from pre operative to post operative stage). If the clinic you are eyeing on is not accredited, then you should have second thoughts about going to that clinic.
Verify travel arrangements and accommodation
Always make sure that you have the necessary and complete details for your plastic surgery abroad. You can research about the locality online and you will arrive at good options for sleep and stay. Also, check beforehand how much the rate per night is in the hotel in the off-chance that you will be staying longer than the arranged period. That way, you’ll be prepared whatever happens. Have a list also on the must see places for your mini vacation. Identify what mode of transportation you’ll be using throughout your stay in the country. Post op, you are extra vulnerable. You may not be able to withstand extreme conditions of the country’s available mode of transportation.
Hopefully, those tips will help you have a wonderful experience of plastic surgery abroad. Have a safe and smooth trip ahead!
