Best and Cheapest Destination for Plastic Surgery Abroad(2018)

Best Place for Plastic Surgery Abroad

The value of travelling abroad for plastic surgery is definitely compelling and that is why the number of people seeking plastic surgery abroad is rapidly growing.

Let’s look at various factors that drive people to undergo plastic surgery abroad:

Cost: The most compelling and important factor is savings. Compared to the cost of plastic surgery in the West, countries in South America, Asia and South East Asia offer much affordable surgery. Same goes for cosmetic dentistry, and that is why many prefer to combine plastic surgery with their dental treatment abroad.

Privacy- Privacy is the second most important factor for which travelling to faraway destinations has caught up with men and women. While it is nearly impossible to keep the surgery discreet at home, you are far away from the prying eyes and can recuperate in peace and privacy when undergoing surgery abroad. 

Travel attraction- Combining plastic surgery with a visit to an exotic destination or an unknown country is another attraction for travellers. You can choose to travel to an adventurous location before the surgery or can recuperate at a resort in a peaceful location after the operation.

Competition for the Best Destination for Plastic Surgery Abroad

With so many countries competing in the race for best destination for cosmetic surgery abroad, India has emerged as a clear winner during the last few years.

While different countries are specifically popular for a particular procedure, India has gained great popularity for all the cosmetic surgery procedures. Be it tummy tuck or Rhinoplasty, Breast Augmentation or Body lift, Indian surgeons are known to have impeccable surgical prowess, be it any type of procedure.

There are various factors that drive people to travel to India for plastic surgery, few of which are listed below:

Highly skilled surgeons: Indian surgeons are known all over the world for their skills and expertise. Western countries like UK, USA, Canada, Australia has a large pool of Indian surgeons. Many surgeons practising in India have had their training in these countries and also have practised there, so they know and understand the expectations of a medical tourist well.

Many patients go to the extent of saying that while few of the best-known surgeons in their country are Indians, why to pay so much more when you get the surgery done by an equally good Indian surgeon in India at a fraction of the cost.

With IndiCure, you can be rest assured that our panel of cosmetic surgeons have more than 20 years of experience under their belt, are Board certified, are affiliated to international bodies of plastic surgery, have no case of malpractice against them and are dedicated to provide the best medical care and surgical results to their patients.
Cost of plastic surgery in India: Cost of plastic surgery in India is less than a sixth of the cost of plastic surgery in the UK or even the cost of plastic surgery in Australia, USA, Canada or New Zealand. 

Even when you compare the cost of plastic surgery in India with other plastic surgery tourism destinations, India is a clear winner. 

And mind you, low cost doesn’t mean low quality, the quality of care and services are as good or even better than what you would get in your home country.

Healthcare facilities – Private and modern hospitals in India are better than many and most of the hospitals in the UK- many of them are specifically designed and built for international visitors- wi-fi, coffee shops, recreation lounges, deluxe rooms with all amenities are few of the common features of these hospitals apart from accreditation by JCAHO, the accreditation agency in the US, ISO, NABH for infrastructure and healthcare services at these hospitals.

      Zero MRSA rates- These modern cosmetic surgery clinics and hospitals in India have zero MRSA rate and thus people from the West can rest assured that they are completely safe.

No language barrier- English is the most widely spoken language in India and is the second language of the country. The staff at the hospital, hotel and all places is well trained to speak English, so language is not an issue.

Incredible India!- India has always attracted the world to its culture and diversity. It is the must-visit destination by Conde Naste and thus a great travel destination for tourists.

Besides exotic locations to enjoy before or after the surgery (depending on your recovery), there are options to recuperate in the scenic and the serene Himalayas or a beachside resort in God’s own country, Kerala or just relax by the seaside in Goa, there are plenty of options for medical tourists.

The growth in the number of medical tourists at a rate of 30% annually, itself tells the story of India’s growing popularity as cosmetic surgery destination.
