Scar revision surgery is a procedure aimed towards minimizing scars by making the affected skin resemble the normal skin in terms of tone and texture. It is the most guaranteed, and sometimes the only effective way to get rid of even the deepest or most prominent scars. A variety of minimally invasive procedures, as well as surgical techniques in wound closure, is used, but they tend to cost a lot in western hospitals and clinics. Thus, a large number of patients opt to travel all the way to Southeast Asia for scar revision surgery.
Choosing to do so offers several key benefits:
- Advanced and high-quality care. Southeast Asia is fast emerging as the hub of medical tourism. Countries like Singapore and Malaysia boast of world-class medical infrastructure while South Korea and Thailand are two of the most progressive when it comes to cosmetic and plastic surgery. Hospitals in these countries are fully equipped with the latest laser surgery equipment most often used in cosmetic skin treatments, ensuring only the best results.
- Cost savings. The major reason why people seek scar revision outside of their own country is the cost. Scar revision is available in Southeast Asia for up to 70% less than what western clinics may charge. Even if you add up all the costs related to travel, such as airfare and accommodation, you will still enjoy significant cost savings.
