Medical tourism is a term used to describe patients that are traveling to another country in order to have a medical procedure done. Patients from lesser developed countries that can afford to travel will often go to a different country in order to pay for higher quality medical procedures. In some cases, certain procedures and treatments may not even be available in the country in which they live, leaving them no option but to travel somewhere else. Medical tourism also applies to the plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery industry.
Medical Tourism and Cosmetic Surgery
In some cases, patients will travel to another country because the cost of surgery may be cheaper elsewhere. In some cases, patients don’t have to wait as long for a certain procedure – such as having their hip replaced, or more seriously, having an organ replaced – if they go to a different country. Many patients who are looking to have cosmetic surgery done will want to have it done at the most reputable cosmetic surgery facilities in the world. Patients who can afford to travel and to pay for a plastic surgery procedure but that may live in a third world country will often choose to come to the United States to have the procedure done. In fact, many patients find their way to Miami, which is a city known for the quality of its cosmetic surgery facilities.
