Cheap Liposuction Prices and Cosmetic Surgery Tourism

Can you really save money by traveling to another country and using local services which are cheaper than the cosmetic surgery and liposuction clinics in your country? Yes – you can save money by doing this. However, there are many things you should take into consideration and be aware of when mapping out such a plan involving one or more surgeries abroad. Let’s address these concerns and points one by one.

Here’s two great points about traveling to save money on the cost of liposuction.

1. You Could Potentially See Some Really Cool Places.
Cosmetic surgery tourism companies know that people love the idea of saving money by traveling for their surgery AND also going somewhere neat. This means your trip could be a vacation in and of itself, location wise. For instance, popular destinations for cosmetic surgery such as cheap liposuction include the Czech Republic, Thailand, Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil, and Malaysia, no name just a few. As you can see, the potential for checking out a cool place is great.

2. You Could Potentially Save a Ton of Money.
Cosmetic surgery is expensive. Take a look at the liposuction prices list we have documented here on our lipo cost guideto see what we mean. Can you find liposuction doctors abroad who will do the same services for less? Yep – you sure can. This means you can absolutely save money doing the whole ‘medical tourism’ deal for cheap liposuction surgery.

For people going all out – and many do – getting multiple liposuction treatments, and other complimentary invasive, non-invasive plastic or cosmetic treatments too – in the same trip can mean a very large sum of money was saved against the cost of the same services in their home country. (Note that there are health and safety concerns to consider when seeking multiple treatments at once or in a short span of time. In the simplest of terms, the more surgery, the more risk, not to mention that it means a more intense post-surgery recovery period.)

And now that not so great factors to consider:

3. Concerns About Recovering.
The recovery period after liposuction warrants that patient relax, not be on their feet, and basically “take it easy”. This means most of all not to be stressed out, not to do any heavy lifting, or lots of walking or intense exercise. If you’re able to stay abroad for a week or longer, you can relax in the city you’re in quite easily, assuming you’ve taken care of your needs (food, etc) or have someone to help you. But if you’ve got to catch a flight – or two, or three – or miss a flight and stay overnight in a hotel, etc – that type of situation is not conducive to letting the body relax and heal itself.

4. It’s Much Harder to Research the Doctors Abroad.
When using the services of someone in your town, you can consult with them, their staff, and their customers, some of whom you might know and can tell you their personal experience in getting liposuction at the hands of the resident cosmetic surgeon. Trying to do the same for a clinic in half way across the world in Thailand or Prague is going to be a challenge. In other words, it’s much harder to get a feel for the clinic, the doctor, and to know about the reputation of their services before you are already committed to traveling to another country and spending a big chunk of change on those lipo services.

5. Can You Really Combine Surgery and Tourism?
Consider if you really want to combine a vacation style trip with liposuction. The truth is that you might not be physically up for doing any sight seeing and many of the other normal activities done on a vacation. If you’re getting work done on the face, there could be incisions, bruises, and swelling on your face too, making it harder to be “out and about.”

Take a good look at these 5 points when it comes to finding cheap liposuction prices abroad and what it means to travel abroad and use those services. For some, it’s the deal of the century, for others, it’s just not a good idea to mix “business with pleasure”, as they say, to save a few dollars on the cost of liposuction.

    A lot of people talk about the negatives of surgery. But I’ve personally had a nose job and chin implant and it helped me feel awesome about myself. I did it in eastern Europe (Czech) and saved about half of the price I would’ve paid in the UK.

    Thanks to whoever runs his blog for this post. It’s been pain in the a$$ trying to find good / quality / reliable information on this whole concept of going to another country or state to save money on liposuction – until now. Thanks again!

    I am glad I find this article. I have been curious about the idea of going to Mexico, Czech, or even India and Thailand for high quality but super inexpensive (compared to the States!) prices. Sounds like it is do able but it’s a bit more involved. I hadn’t even thought about how hard it might be to research such a thing as specific doctors beforehand – this does trouble me.

    Anyone out there have any experience with so-called “cosmetic surgery tourism” they’d like to share? How was the quality? Was it worth it to fly out there and do it or was it more stress than worth the money saved?

    Under Obama care we won’t have to travel abroad for cheap cosmetic surgery right? It will all be paid here at home with our taxes. Wahaha
