There are a very few Asian countries in the world that do not mind going under the knife to modify or in today’s technological terms, upgrade their looks. They do not do it because they just love to, rather because they are experts in the field. This could be easily understood from the fact that flocks of international patients come to these countries to seek treatments from the most reliable physicians.
Below are the top 4 leading medical-travel destinations that has been contributing excellence in the field of plastic surgery and have become hotspots in the world.
India dates back to the 800 B.C. when it comes to performing reconstructive surgical procedures. India was an educational hub for western physicians to learn rhinoplasties with the help of traditional methods. The rich has a lot to contribute in the field of successful cosmetic & plastic surgery conducted in the country. The country houses an impressive array of top quality surgeons and reliable clinics to provide just the best in the field. The savings made is a big driving factor too. Almost all metropolitan areas have American Board certified surgeons specialized in the fields of facial surgery like blepharoplasty, facelifts, cleft lip procedures, scar removal and so on.
Thailand is a hub of cosmetic plastic surgery in the world. The women folk of the country is very much concern about their looks. And hence there’s a lot of competition in the market. Medical tourists are seen in large numbers who flood the country for top-shelf doctors, state-of-the-art clinics, and low prices. The price rate of course is much less compared to first world countries. Here is an instance, abdominoplasty in Australia costs $8,500 USD. The same is done for $3,500 in Thailand. A buttock lift in America would cost $11K but as low as $7-8 grand off that cost in Thailand. The country today is roughly termed as the land of smiles with the increasing number of modern clinics and highly-skilled surgeons.
3. South Korea
South Korea is the favorite medical tourist hotspot center for eyelid surgery in the Asian continent. The recent “Korean Wave” contributed a lot to pop-culture that became quite a hit in this part of the region. The surgeons are world-renowned specialists when it comes to Rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery. They are also the inceptor of Tip Plasty, a technique used to change the size and shape of the tip of the nose. South Korea has become a gradual hit because of these factors. They advocate tourists from all around the world like Italy, Greece, and America who come to this country with due to its expertise, price competitiveness and of course, its high and reliable quality.
Malaysia might be relatively new in the field of cosmetic surgery, but it is fast becoming a medical tourist hotspot, especially for its neighboring Singapore. For those treatments in which its medical system does not specialize, the people become customers. Kuala Lumpur advocated 6,000 Singaporean medical travelers last year who came to the country to seek cosmetic plastic surgery treatments at affordable rate. The country is also expected a grand increase in its number owing to the heavy influx of patients from the other nations. Compared to rival Thailand, the affordability factor is much more. Where treatments like breast augmentation, tummy tucks and eyelid surgery in Malaysia is $4,000, the same goes for twice in Singapore.
