Plastic Surgery in India - What makes India THE Best Destination?

Plastic Surgery in India

Have you been waiting to undergo your dream makeover because you do not afford the cost of plastic surgery in your country?

Or do you think cosmetic surgery is a luxury only the very rich can afford? Well, not anymore! 

Medical Tourism

If you have been following the recent trends, you might have come across the term ‘Medical Tourism’. 

Medical Tourism is the phenomenon where people travel to other countries for their treatment, which is either not available in their home country or it is too expensive to afford locally. And when people specifically travel for plastic surgery abroad, it is called ‘Plastic Surgery Tourism’.

Many Plastic Surgery Tourists combine their treatment with a visit to an exotic location before or after the surgery

Not that “tourism” is always associated with the medical treatment, but since many people choose to combine their surgery with a visit to a tourist destination before or after the surgery, the term Medical Tourism or Plastic Surgery Tourism is coined.

If you didn't know till now, India is now one of the most preferred destinations for low cost and quality plastic surgery abroad

This could be, well, the answer to end your finances clashing with your medical care aspirations! 

Statistics- Medical Tourism to India

Whether you have liked taking statistics classes in school or not, there is no denying the fact that statistical figures mostly speak better than words (and louder too!). 

Statistical figures show that more than 500,000 people from across the globe had chosen India to undergo medical treatments in 2015-16.

And the numbers are rising higher in 2017! Even the most stubborn sceptic would be forced to look into why India is becoming such a favourite destination for healthcare!

Why Plastic Surgery in India?

Did you know that India is considered to be the birthplace of plastic surgery? 
There is historical evidence that shows that it was practised in the land as early as 2000 BC. 
Yes, but that cannot be the reason why you should pack your bags and head on to India for plastic surgery in the twenty-first century. 
So let us first look into the factors that have enabled the country to build its reputation as a trusted and affordable destination for plastic surgery.  

      1)  Low cost of Plastic Surgery in India 

The cost of plastic surgery in India is much affordable as compared to the cost in West. For instance, the cost of Tummy Tuck in India starts from US $ 2900 whereas the same costs around US $ 12,000 in the US and £ 8,000 in the UK. 
And if you have to combine a few procedures, the savings are obviously much more! 
And mind you, this does not mean that you compromise on the quality of care or services. You get the same or better quality of care as in your home country.

And you have always thought that the quality suffers when the prices are cheap? After all, it is a basic human assumption that best services come with an expensive price tag. It is not necessarily right, and definitely not in terms of India’s medical care. 

     2)  Board Certified Plastic Surgeons

India’s medical professionals have long gained the reputation for being on par with the world’s best. Not only a few of the best plastic surgeons in India are board certified, they are far more experienced in the number of procedures they have performed than their Western counterparts. 
After all, they are practising in the second most populous country in the world! 
3)   Accredited Medical Facilities 
The hospitals and healthcare facilities in India are also geared up to receive international clients and offer services according to their standards and expectations.   
Thus comes accreditation which few of the best plastic surgery hospitals in India have, as a mark that they match international standards.   

     4)  English-speaking staff 

In this era of globalization, travelling overseas is no more a big deal. But if there is something that acts as a real barrier for travellers, it is the language barrier. 
After all, no one looks forward to getting into a hospital environment in a foreign country for plastic surgery and not being able to communicate well with the medical staff. Spare such nightmares, for the doctors and hospital staff in India, is very fluent in English. 
After all, India is the country with maximum number of English speaking population in the world!
      4)   !ncredible India- One of the Must Visit Tourist Destinations
What if you could combine your plastic surgery procedure along with your vacation plans? After all, now that you are saving on your surgery, you can afford a vacation in a country wellness resort for a complete mind and soul rejuvenation or visit Goa for its vast beaches and happening nightlife. 

As unlikely as that sounds, this is exactly what India can offer you. 
India is famous for its amazing tourist spots and rich cultural heritage. There’s no way you would want to leave the country without relishing in its beautiful tourist destinations. 
If plastic surgery is on your to-do lists, you do not have to wait forever or take a loan for the surgery which leaves you with little to make your both ends meet every month!

Choose to undergo plastic surgery in India and you will thank yourself for making a decision that is both medically correct and economically wise!
