Posted on January 6, 2009. Filed under: Net Spy | Tags: , , |

In 2007, Brazil dreams to make its medical tourism a one million dollar industry by attracting more foreigners to acquire affordable plastic surgery and other medical treatments in the country. The Brazil Health Consortium expects to have a turnover over of $1 million with medical tourism in the next three years. After a year, the rise of affordable plastic surgery in Brazil is fascinating. The development of health care facilities in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro have passed the Joint Commission International (JCI) and Consortium for Brazilian Accreditation (CBA) standards. By then, hospitals in Brazil are widely known to outsource affordable plastic surgery. Many of these hospitals and surgeons are recognized as the best in their field in Latin America.

Plastic surgery cost in Brazil is very affordable compared to its counterparts in the United States, Europe and Canada. The fall of the currency in Brazil, the Real, has made it a low cost destination for those seeking medical treatment. The currency exchange rate for U.S. dollars allows American patients to get elective and immediate plastic surgery in Brazil at rock bottom cost. Plastic surgery cost, long waiting times and overburdened health care insurance are the core factors that hinder patients from getting medical treatments in the United States. Experts predicts a deterioration in the U.S. health care system because of issues of its cost, which most Americans are left without health insurance and some are under insured.

In 2008, Brazil was recognized as the World Capital of Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery. The promotion of plastic surgery in Brazil was heated up by positive feed backs and word of mouth by patients who have experienced the excellence of plastic surgery in Brazil. Thus, many people took advantage of the low plastic surgery cost, top quality cosmetic surgery expertise and the chance to turn a recovery time into an enjoyable holiday.

Brazil’s thriving eco-tourism industry makes it unique from other medical tourism destination countries. Combining affordable plastic surgery with a thrill filled journey in the lush Amazon rain forest or spend the rest of your recuperation period in some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with miles of white sand, enjoying some sun and scenery only in Brazil.

Predictions for 2009 has set Brazil the upperhand in the medical tourism industry. Again, the biggest attraction of Brazilian medical tourism is the low costs and excellent service. The industry is expected to prosper more than it expected, more patients and more developments this year.

Affordable plastic surgery in Brazil can now be acquired by the help of medical tourism agencies that organize and fix schedules for patients.
