The Benefits of Plastic Surgery Abroad

One of the main criticisms of the UK’s National Health Service is the waiting times, with many non-essential surgical procedures frequently being bumped down the queue as more urgent cases leapfrog to the front. This is one of the main reasons many Brits choose to travel abroad for cosmetic surgery as they can choose when they have the surgery rather than waiting for months or in some cases, over a year. These cosmetic surgery holidays, often in eastern Europe or south east Asia are usually less expensive then going private here in the UK, and with the current affordability and ease of international travel makes them all the more attractive.


It’s not just in the UK that people are choosing to travel abroad for surgery, as the practise is more or less global. It is popular in the USA simply because most other countries offer better prices than their own healthcare providers. Affluent families from third world countries also travel to the UK, the USA or the far east in order to get a better level of healthcare than their own countries can provide, and in many cases, their own country simply does not provide the surgery they either require or desire.


Although people opt for surgery abroad for a whole spectrum of medical complaints and procedures, cosmetic surgery holidays appear to be the most popular. What one must be aware of however, is what the quoted costs actually cover. Sometimes the quote is all-inclusive (flights, surgery, hotel, meals), other times the quote is only for the surgical procedure itself. The last thing you want is to fly overseas only to find yourself trying to book a hotel the day after your surgery. So make sure everything is in place and is crystal clear beforehand.
