Medical Tourism Highlights Plastic surgery in Argentina

Posted on December 10, 2008. Filed under: Net Spy | Tags: , , |

Like Brazil and Mexico, plastic surgery in Argentina is on the medical tourism hype. The country ranks among the highest medical standards in South America and the world. In fact, medical centers in Argentina are equipped with the latest American and European technology. The country also hosted several international symposiums on affordable plastic surgery to promote the very latest surgery developments and technology. And after decades of giving patients high quality and affordable plastic surgery, the public and the world have finally considered Argentina to be one of the best option to fight overwhelming plastic surgery cost. discussed an intensive overview of Argentine surgeons. I found out that Argentine surgeons are very competent if compared to the United States in many ways:

1. Argentine surgeons undergo a long and strict training which extends beyond graduation.
2. In order to practice affordable plastic surgery, newly graduated physicians must pass an exam to entitle them to a two-year internship in public hospitals offering free medical assistance to those who cannot afford private clinics.
3. In addition, physicians must carry out academic work and are awarded their credentials by the association or medical college of their specialization.
4. Credentials are renewed periodically and guarantee that the professional keeps him/herself up to date with new methodologies and technologies.

In order to practice affordable plastic surgery, Argentina surgeons must carry a national medical license to operate. According to, to check the credentials of your preferred surgeon you can start by looking at professional bodies/organizations which includes The Argentinean Plastic Surgery Society (SACPER), which is affiliated to the Medical Association of Argentina (AMA) and helps with the continuous improvements and development of plastic surgeons in Argentina.  Plastic surgery in Ibero American countries is ruled by a common code of ethics and all plastic surgery boards affiliated to the Ibero-latinamerican federation of Plastic Surgery (FILACP) must abide by these.  (FILAP is the organisation which unites all the plastic surgeon societies and boards in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries).  You can also check the surgeon’s accreditation with organisations such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS), the Buenos Aires Plastic Surgery Society (SCPBA) and the Argentinean Plastic Surgery Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

In terms of plastic surgery cost, plastic surgery in Argentina is reasonably cheaper. The reason behind why patients consider medical tourism is primarily because of plastic surgery cost which most Americans who have an average salary can’t afford. Plastic surgery in Argentina is a solid choice for patients coming from the United States, Canada and Europe because of the level of professionalism and skills are very high. The prices are a fraction of the cost in the USA. A woman can get a great breast implants at Argentina for less than 8,000 pesos or $ 2,600. Hair implants for men is 5,000 pesos vs. $5,000 in the USA.
