Feed Your Cosmetic Surgery Dreams

Argentina is among the top choices of American and European patients who are longing to get a much affordable medical procedure. Experts estimate that medical tourism will greatly increase the country’s annual profit. Like India and other countries that offer high quality medical procedures, Argentina now belongs to the top list of countries for excellent plastic surgery, low cost hair transplant, affordable assisted fertilization, cheap gastric bypass surgery, tummy tuck and liposuction.

Patients take the choice of crossing the border or flying away, primarily because of overblown health care systems. With 43 million people without health insurance and 120 million without dental coverage, the United States is particularly the main attraction of the trend. The flow will also encourage patients in Britain, Canada and other countries with an outstretched pending list for major surgery to take advantage of a much inexpensive surgery.

Clinics in India, Costa Rica, Thailand as well as Argentina have developed the use of medical equipments that could compete with U.S. and European hospitals. Specialists are knowledgeable in using advanced techniques like follicular micro grafting which is the most advanced technique in hair transplant. These progress triggered medical treatments to be very competitive and foreign patients become more confident to take their medical treatments abroad.

Savings on both minor and major surgeries are quite impressive. Cosmetic surgery, which is one of the highest demands nowadays, gives out as much as 75% savings for U.S. patients. A full face lift that would cost over $15,000 in the U.S. can be done at about $2,995 in Argentina. Patients can also get a combination of 2 treatments upon approval by their personal physicians. GoSculptura, leading medical tourism based in Montreal, Canada offers combo packages for their medical treatments. Combined abdominal liposuction and tummy tuck can be done at $6,190 which is almost 1/3 of the total U.S. cost.

Though the repute of medical tourism has been proven these past few years, critics still argue on the quality of offshore medical care. Yet, the hospitals and clinics that cater to international patients are among the best in the world, mostly staffed by physicians trained at major medical centers in the United States and Europe. Medical experts in the field of plastic surgery, hair transplant, assisted fertilization, gastric bypass surgery, tummy tuck and liposuction are being audited as well as the facilities before a medical tourism provider will include them in their partner network.

To ensure the quality of the patients’ medical care, medical agencies hold their reputation to only provide the best surgeons and clinics for a certain medical procedure. These agencies act as intermediaries for the patients and surgeons to secure the successful outcome of the trip even before the patient starts his/her travel. If a patient decides to undergo gastric bypass, his agency will carefully assess his needs. The agency will perform a step by step check up if the patient is qualified for his/her treatment. They will also plan the entire medical trip, hotel accommodations, book flights, schedule surgeries and check up, and even plan an exotic tour in their tourist spots or other recuperative treatments for the recovery of their patients. These process reflects on each and every medical treatments the agency offers. Whether plastic surgery, low cost hair transplant, affordable assisted fertilization, cheap gastric bypass surgery, tummy tuck and liposuction, the agency will ensure that everything must go flawlessly.

“We’re now getting dozens of inquiries a week from referrals coming from happy patients. Patients appreciate the apparent value they are getting given the surgeons’ credentials but also the ability to recover privately in comfortable and exotic surroundings”, says John Walch, program manager for GoSculptura. The agency sent its first patient overseas years ago and is now sending dozens of patients, mostly for cosmetic surgery, to partner hospitals and clinics in Argentina.

As the trend continues to mature, medical tourism will offer new ways of satisfaction for patients that long dreamed to redesign themselves. Indeed, medical tourism has proven itself to be one of the most life changing journeys for thousands of patients worldwide.
