Over time with the advancement of medical knowledge and technologies, the level of expertise and tools are not solely used to treat diseases. Moreover, the development of knowledge and equipment has dramatically increased our perception of the human body. This information has led to the enhancement of medical treatment, and it will not be limited to the treatment of disease, but also to the development of equipment that can change humans’ face and body.
Gradually, the existence of various medical equipment and advanced tools has changed the standard of beauty. However, these criteria will change over time, based on multiple factors. The existence of aesthetic principles led to the emergence of a new medical branch called cosmetic surgery, and it covers a wide range of facial and body surgeries. Plastic surgery is one of the most attractive and popular branches of cosmetic surgery. Nowadays, in addition to the emergence of various types of cosmetic surgeries, it is now possible to have these surgeries in other countries. In fact, those who want to have plastic surgery for any reason can travel to other countries to have the procedure they want.
Why should we travel to another country for plastic surgery or any other treatment?
Firstly, the most crucial factor in choosing a country to perform cosmetic surgery is the cost of operation. For example, The United States is one of the most famous countries in the field of health tourism; however, the cost of treatment is very high, and for that reason, not everyone can choose this country to continue their treatment.
Secondly, there may be some laws in the country of origin that will not permit the performance of certain plastic surgeries, or the insurance will not cover the procedure, and as a result, the cost of cosmetic surgery would be much high.
Thirdly, the accessibility of professional specialists, advanced facilities, and the low cost of plastic surgery in other countries.
