During the past decade, Southeast Asia has seen a dramatic increase in medical tourism, specifically in plastic and cosmetic surgery. While many medical travelers are from Asia due to the cosmetic surgery craze that has hit the region, patients from other western countries are also arriving in droves because of a variety of reasons, including cost and quality care.
The cost of plastic and cosmetic surgery in the west is astonishing. If you can’t afford the current prices or if you’re willing to travel overseas to have the procedure, Southeast Asia is the best destination. Here, you can expect high quality cosmetic surgery at very affordable prices.
One of the reasons why plastic and cosmetic surgery has bloomed in Southeast Asia is the high levels of quality care that cosmetic surgery clinics provide. There are a couple of reasons behind this. First, the respective governments have applied measures to ensure the quality care of patients to improve medical tourism. Second, the number of highly qualified cosmetic surgery clinics in Southeast Asia has increased thus making the industry more competitive.
As most of the clinics are unable to bring down their prices further, they improve services in order to remain competitive. Thus, you are practically assured of receiving quality care from arrival, throughout the surgery, and during the recovery process. Many clinics have even resorted to building patient rooms that are similar to hotel and resort rooms, complete with magnificent sceneries. All of this is done to entice Western travelers like you interested in plastic and cosmetic surgery.
