Top 5 Locations in the World for Plastic Surgery
According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Global Survey, around 17 million procedures are carried out around the world by approximately 30,000 surgeons. While we are dedicated to discussing plastic surgery in Thailand, we also want to give you a global picture. Therefore, we will look at the top 5 places in the world for plastic surgery though you won’t be surprised to discover the #1 location!
5 – Miami, Florida, United States
Miami was the setting for the famous TV show ‘Nip/Tuck’ and it is one of the most visited locations in the east coast of the United States for plastic surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there are an incredible 18 clinics per 100,000 adults (over the age of 18) in the city. The Mount Sinai Medical Center is one of the world’s most famous clinics but be prepared to pay a fortune!
4 – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
South America actually has a relatively negative reputation when it comes to plastic surgery with cheap and nasty clinics dotted around the continent. However, Rio is a shining light in a nation that has 4,500 licensed plastic surgeons. This may seem like a lot until you realise that Brazil has a population of almost 200 million people. Plastic surgery in Rio is surprisingly expensive with certain procedures costing $6,500+.
3 – San Jose, Costa Rica
Until the emergence of plastic surgery in Thailand, San Jose was a popular location for American patients as it is only a maximum of 10 hours away from most major US cities. The nation’s government make it easy for US medical tourists to go to and from the country but now that Thailand is considered to be among the world’s best places for plastic surgery, fewer people come to San Jose.
2 – Singapore
Singapore is considered to be a city state and has a population of just over 5 million. It has one of the world’s best healthcare systems and its Biopolis is world famous. Since this health centre cost over $300 million, money needs to be recouped so although you will receive a high standard of care, it is more expensive than other locations in the region.
1 – Bangkok, Thailand
Thailand is known as the ‘land of smiles’ and Bangkok is fast becoming one of the world’s most visited cities. The growth of medical tourism in the nation is astonishing and well over 2 million people travel thousands of miles each year to have plastic surgery in Thailand. The fact that it is a beautiful country with amazing scenery and hectic nightlife (especially in Bangkok) certainly helps! However, the icing on the cake is the price and quality combination; expect world class plastic surgery in Thailand for less than 50% of what you will pay elsewhere.
In most cases, if you want high quality cosmetic surgery for a price you can afford, be prepared to travel overseas. As you can see from the above list, plastic surgery in Thailand is your best option so book an appointment with a world class Bangkok clinic today.
