Plastic Surgery in Australia Safer Than Going Abroad for Cheaper Prices

The lure of affordable plastic surgery from foreign countries has Aussies flying abroad across the world - but at a high cost.

sydney (I-Newswire) December 20, 2013 - The lure of affordable plastic surgery from foreign countries has Aussies flying abroad across the world - but at a high cost. Often these surgeries are performed using poor medical procedures and questionable technology, and leave adventurous medical tourists with more scars than cosmetic enhancements to show when they get home.

The verdict from Australians going abroad for cheaper surgery has largely been negative. As medical tourism i.e. visiting countries with cheaper medical facilities becomes seen as a viable way of getting an affordable surgical beauty treatment, there are increasing horror stories of the quality of these treatments.

They are in fact turning out costlier than expected with post-treatment medical care bills for complications emerging after these surgeries are done.

These are the findings of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons who have documented the last six years have seen thousands of people undertaking these trips annually. Further these treatments abroad to skimp on costs are on the rise.

According to the findings of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons breast augmentation is a major reason behind Aussies flying out of the country. Other popular procedures include breast reduction and abdominoplasty, more commonly known in the popular media as "tummy tuck" also drive the outbound medical tourism from the country.

What is even more harmful about the surgery is that they have to corrected or treated by a doctor who has himself not conducted the original plastic surgery - and often is not familiar with the minute technicalities of the procedure.

There are bigger damages - the country's healthcare system must bear the high cost of treating these patients. and it is public healthcare which is the preferred option for dealing with these issues, as private treatment is much more expensive. That too especially after they have spent much of their savings on a medical treatment, and a round trip flight.

Asia is emerging as a major hub for Aussies undertaking medical tourism surgery - specifically Singapore and Thailand for their low prices. Further Asia's geographical proximity makes it a favorable surgery destination.

However in recent times cost reasons have also led to Australian visiting Eastern Europe and Africa and even Mexico for these procedures. The United Kingdom has also seen an increase in overseas travel specifically for cosmetic surgery, and the country's public healthcare system suffers losses of millions due to correcting poorly done surgeries.

With the need for affordable medical procedures Australia Plastic Surgery has launched affordable cosmetics solutions for their clientele. The initiative has been undertaking looking at the increasing demand across the country for high-tech cosmetic surgery that does not burn a hole in the pocket.
