Cosmetic surgery
'Amir Karam Fat Transfer Facelift' by BestInPlastics

Sitting here watching 'Botched Up Bodies', I can't help but think that travelling overseas for the sake of saving on plastic surgery is a very bad idea.

Do you think it is safe to travel abroad for cosmetic surgery?

The other thing to worrie about is, once a person has had it....they don't always want to stop.You could get anyone overseas, and how do you 'know' that so called doctor IS a cosmetic surgeon.They can make fake certificates, anything
It is a lot more risky, and you only get what you pay for in life.
No. Very risky. Insurances and patient rights are obscure. I know someone who tried to save money by getting cosmetic dentistry work done in Thailand for cheap, yet her teeth are now causing her serious problems where her dental bill is 4-5 times what it would have been had she undergone the same procedures in oz the 1st time round.
I personally wouldn't do it, mainly because of fear of complications. Whilst I am sure there are very reputable doctors who do a great job overseas, but not knowing their medical system is a worry.
I don't think it's safe - it's cheaper for a reason and some of the standards compromised are in terms of cleanliness, after care and quality. I wouldn't risk it for the sake of changing my look.
No,. definitely not -I believe you "get what you pay for" and I would never go to a foreign country for something like this. I would rather not have it as our standards here are generally so high.

Would depend on the country. I wouldn't get it done here either, so I'm not the right person to ask. I would investigate the hospitals and doctors, just as you would at home.
Our hospitals are plagued by infection. So yes, I would travel overseas. It sounds great to sing the praises of our own hospitals here in Oz but the fact is that our infection rate is no lower than a whole lot of other countries.
Our nurses and doctors are no more vigilant re washing their hands, particularly between patients, than any other nursing or medical staff.

No. Just plain asking for nothing but trouble, & costly repairs here.

Couple of weeks' ago, there was news of a young woman going to Mexico for a procedure, & died.

What price your life?
Good point, donjo.
